Cynthia and Luis are a couple based in the Philippines who travel back and forth to Vancouver to visit son Carlos and his family twice a year. We were asked to totally renovate this 2,700 sqft townhouse in Yaletown to accommodate the couple and their extended family who would come and visit during Christmas and Summer. We replaced all their laminate floors with hardwood and remodeled their kitchen, bathrooms and closets. We also chose low-slung European furniture, modern art and a neutral colour scheme to give the house a decidedly West Coast flavour.
This West Side home was totally updated for Mark and Pam, an older couple who were downsizing from their single-detached home on Vancouver’s West Side to this condo in Oakridge. They wanted an open concept kitchen with clean and simple lines. Part of their requirements was for our design team to replace the bathtub – which they hardly ever used – with a shower. Their preferred style of decor was mid-century modern to echo the look and feel of their previous 1960s style home which had a strong Danish influence.
This 3-bed/2-bath condo in Olympic Village was designed for Leo, a high-flying creative professional and his equally busy wife Maria, an I.T. professional. Both needed a calm and peaceful space to unwind after a long and tiring day running their separate businesses. Our design team was asked to create an art-deco influenced interior to suit their cosmopolitan lifestyle and to help them buy new pieces of art to complement their existing collection of Modern paintings and sculptures.
Izumi and Reid are both work in the financial services industry. When we were called in to help the couple wanted their home to have a big ‘wow’ factor to offset the chopped-up interior (the townhouse was spread over 3 floors). We brought in some art-deco influenced furniture, wallpaper, and accessories to create a show-stopping interior that never fails to impress visitors to this Coal Harbour residence. The owners say that coming through the front door makes them feel like they’re going home to a luxurious hotel every day of the week.
Prior to working with Cynthia and Luis, we had worked on son Carlos and wife Theresa’s townhouse in Yaletown a few years earlier. Theresa had just moved to from Manila and wanted us create an interior that would help her get settled into her new life in Vancouver quickly. We mixed some fun contemporary pieces with some reliable mid-century classics which made the house comfortable and pretty at the same time. The result is a home that looks and feels up-to-the-minute and makes you instantly want to put up your shoes and relax at the same time.
Prior to working with our team, entrepreneurial couple Jason and Larisa had never worked with an interior designer before. In fact they had never even owned their own home and had been renters for many years. This would be their first ever house purchase in Vancouver, so they wanted it to be special. They also wanted a clean and modern aesthetic with a twist. The result is a visually arresting blend of mid-century furnishings, calm and soothing colours and shaker-style kitchen and bathrooms.
This 2,000 sqft two-level penthouse condo in Richmond underwent a total renovation after Manila-based property developer couple Luis and Bing sold their large single-detached family home on Marine Drive in Vancouver’s West Side. They purchased a penthouse condo in Richmond that would serve as their local base whenever they were in town. A new bedroom and bathroom were added to accommodate this 4-person family, and we were asked to create a contemporary and timeless look that would be easy to maintain given their busy and peripatetic lifestyle.

Bernadette and Chris had just sold their 1970s East Vancouver rancher-style house for a more stately Crafstman Style residence in Vancouver’s posh Shaugnessy area. Not having furnished their entire ground floor for 2 years since they moved in prompted them to call us for help to reconcile the couple’s clashing tastes. After an extensive assessment, we simply let the house’s architecture guide our decision-making. This meant going for a more classically-styled furnishings, art and accessories to stay in tune with the elegant and formal feel of the house.
George did a wonderful job on the interior design of our new house. My wife and I are both extremely busy people and they way George was able to present his ideas, made the decisions on our end that much easier. He was able to present to us several different options in an easy to read and understand format. He always immediately responded to any questions or feedback from us.
George Verdolaga was able to save us both a lot of time and money and was certainly worth the cost of his professional services.
My husband and I have worked together with Flowform over several years, designing our condos and houses as my husband and I moved from each. We were always impressed on how Flowform transforms an ordinary place into something beautiful to live in. I like their depth of knowledge of interior design and their creativity. We presently live in a one-bedroom condo and they designed it in such a way to make it appear bigger than its size and so beautifully that we enjoy coming home every time. Our friends like the design, too, and we feel proud and happy when we get compliments.
Flowform’s design has added value to our property, making it easier to go fast in the market when we were selling.
George and his team at Flowform Design are such an incredible resource for anyone who’s looking to renovate or update their home. He has an amazing gift for transforming your home from ordinary to outstanding! From design to execution he makes it fun and even exhilarating. George works to create a plan of action with different options and varying budgets and his intensive network of supplies and trades, sets him apart from other designers.
As a real estate professional who’s been in the industry for 10+ years in the Lower Mainland, highly recommend George and his team at Flowform Design for your interior design project.
This was my first time working with a designer and George was wonderful. He was friendly, efficient, highly professional, and organized. He was able to accommodate our budget and give us good alternatives that still worked with our style. George was always polite which made working with him a joy. He also generously shared his network of good tradespeople, something very helpful for those of us who have no contacts.
Overall, Flowform Design helped make our renovations and move as painless as possible and I would definitely recommend them.
We engaged George Verdolaga to design and execute interior work on four different small condos in Vancouver … two of them were brand new units to move into, a third was one we had occupied for some time that we were vacating to make way for a family member, and a fourth was a rental unit that we were preparing for sale. In all cases, we found that George struck the right balance between pushing his own ideas while adjusting readily to our own thoughts and preferences. His good taste and his excellent contacts with suppliers and trades were invaluable assets in producing homes which we have found over the course of the past year to be highly livable
George has a great sense of what designs are both in style, but will stand the test of time (so you aren’t left with a home 10 years down the road with a bathroom which was contemporary 10 years ago, but is now out of style and is going to be a tough sell). His use/knowledge of lighting and traditional materials allows any space feel so open and vibrant.
Can’t say enough about George. From start to finish, his team is professional that sees every small detail and it always three steps ahead of you. I always feel that George has my back and see the vision through from beginning to end.
