Who we are

Our design team is passionate about creating tailored design solutions reflective of our clients’ unique identities. We believe Interior Design is more than matching materials and finishes, but rather the process of creating spaces that respond to the specific needs of the occupants – in a thoughtful and meaningful way. Since 2009, WLID Inc. has been striving to improve the function and beauty of every interior we touch and we are pleased to have been featured in Homes and Living Magazine (Calgary Edition) and several of our designs have been honored by the Calgary Home Builder’s Association (CHBA) SAM awards.

What we do

We transform our client’s passions into the built environment. Every space should tell a story. Whether you own a home or a business, your space should express where you’ve been, who you are, and support you as you move into your own new chapter. Our designs consider so much more than aesthetics. We examine functional, psychological, performance and life safety implications to ensure your space offers a sustainable foundation on which to grow. We offer a variety of services adapted to our clients’ project and budget needs, including consultations, basic design service packages as well as comprehensive full scope design and project management.

How we do it

Unlike design firms who concentrate predominantly on décor and charge you by the hour, we offer a methodical design process, tailored to your needs, with clearly defined deliverables and a fixed contract price. We identify priorities, expectations and milestones at the project outset in order to move ahead effectively and efficiently, with all project team members on the same page. You’re in charge and you know where you want to go, now let us guide you there.
