Principal Designer

Lianna Armstrong, the visionary behind Evolve Interior Design, stands as its founder and unflinching leader. The “fearless” descriptor holds true, as she expertly steered Evolve Designs in Vancouver for an impressive 15 years before returning to her hometown of Nanaimo to write a new chapter in both her life and business.

A seasoned interior designer with a stellar track record, Lianna boasts multiple distinctions – listed below – showcasing her commitment to excellence. However, her most cherished title is that of Dog Mom to the ever-lovable Buddy and Winnie.

Beyond steering the helm of the company, you’ll often find Lianna going for long walks with her furry companions or orchestrating culinary masterpieces. In every aspect of her life, Lianna seamlessly blends passion, professionalism, and a touch of canine companionship.

Office Dogs

Enter our dynamic duo of office companions – Buddy, the distinguished gentleman in white, and Winnie, the lady with a perpetual smile, tongue-out style. Their friendliness is unmatched; Buddy brings the charm with his bark, while Winnie adds sweetness with her enthusiastic licks. While their presence may slow down the pace of work, the morale experiences an exponential boost every time they step into the office. We owe a part of our success to these furry morale-boosters – without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
