the Pure Design Love
Ami McKay and her PURE Design team create spaces that give – not take. This PURE Design belief in giving is infused in all its efforts – from designing kitchenettes at women’s safe houses to raising funds through design projects for kids Help-Phone. It fills Ami’s heart to give back to her community because early on in her journey a kind soul lent her a helping hand. This fuels Ami’s unwavering desire to pass on this generosity.
From Our Clients
I had the absolute pleasure of having PURE Design complete a total renovation of my home. My home has been beautifully transformed and, yet, it maintains its original charm which I absolutely LOVE. I really wanted a beautifully, well-lit, functioning, welcoming home. Ami and her PURE team really knocked it out of the park! It surpassed my expectations and I feel grateful every day that I get to call this little oasis…home. My home is absolutely spectacular. Bright, warm, cozy and inviting. Well thought out design and functionality both upstairs and downstairs. Thoughtful and spectacular colours, fixtures and finishings. Ami is an absolute delight to work with – eager to create a home as you want it, bursting with positivity & creativity and extraordinarily talented and professional. She is also just an overall wonderful human to everyone in her orbit. The PURE team are equally as lovely, accommodating, professional and talented. My interior styling is absolutely stunning. Don is an absolute delight to work with. He runs a tight ship, exceptionally professional, has a keen eye and his talent and instincts match Ami’s! They truly are the dream team! He is always available to answer any questions or concerns, has acute attention to detail and manages the construction team with ease and confidence. Both have gone beyond my expectations in working with me, helping me, listening to my questions and concerns and being overly accommodating!! They truly care about their clients and treat each project like it’s their own. I really can’t say enough about the entire PURE team. You will not be disappointed in the final presentation and will have friends for life. I highly recommend PURE Design – they live up to their reputation, word and value!!
Ami (designer) and Don (contractor) are a power couple who renovated our home, taking it from what the house inspector told me he expected would be a tear-down, to an award-winning magazine-featured home renovation. Ami and her team were so passionate and responsive with the design, and super friendly and reassuring. The magazine features of our renovated home taught me that the style for our home can be referred to as “boho”, “beach style”, “west coast”, “breezy indoor-outdoor style”, and/or “cottage-style”. I have little understanding of what these words really mean, but I love our design, that is for sure, and I can confirm that it has gone a very long way towards taking the sting out of remote-working through the pandemic. The fun part for me was when the contractor Don started working his magic. Don never gave even one thought to tearing down our one-of-a-kind home, even though it would have been much easier for him. No way he was doing that (and no way I was paying for all those new house materials just to lose the beauty and uniqueness we already had). The house was gutted. Wood at the corners of the house was moldy and rotting, everything was uneven, electrical, plumbing, everything had to be saved. The house literally sits on the side of a mountain, so the driveway is hilariously steep, making the whole process of getting material in and out that much more difficult. Don strikes a perfect balance between being a calm leader who can solve any problem, having a great sense of humour (jokes are constantly brewing in his mind at ALL times), and making completely sure that every contracted trade does not waste money but completes the job exactly to Don’s satisfaction. Believe me, the level of Don’s satisfaction was much higher than my own.
Ami, and her Pure team, are spectacular! They designed the interior of our new build in West Vancouver. Every detail of the process was exciting, easy and fun! We looked forward to our planning meetings at the beautiful Pure Shoppe. Ami is incredibly intuitive and seemed to know what we wanted before we did! She listened, guided and brought our dream house to fruition! Her warmth and passion for design can be felt throughout our new home. The attention to detail is incredible. We are thrilled that we got to witness Ami’s magic! We highly recommend Pure!
Ami, Don and team were a dream to work with. Ami is so clever and talented in her design ideas. Ami was responsible for the renovation of our waterfront boathouse. We wanted to create a special oasis for family and friends to enjoy and the outcome is simply stunning. We were blown away by her creativity and exquisite taste. It is positively magazine worthy! I would not hesitate to recommend Ami and Don if you are looking for a unique and tasteful design for your home.
Ami and the team at PURE Design are second to none. It takes experience and expertise to guide the design process while integrating the clients needs, wants, budget, and inspiration. Ami carefully listens to our ideas then steers and translates them into a cohesive and sophisticated plan. Expert product knowledge, strong connections to suppliers and years of experience allow the PURE team to deliver fantastic results. We waited a long time for the perfect project to engage Ami to help us facilitate our vision and she does not disappoint. In fact, she adds her joyful spirit, generosity, and a level of fun that has turned out to be extremely valuable for us to fully enjoy the process. Without hesitation we’d refer PURE Design for your project.
Ami McKay is a very talented designer.
Amy is professional, reliable and a joy to work with! We initially hired Ami to review our kitchen plan. After meeting with her, we quickly realized that she could transform our new house into something special. Ami worked within our tight budget and helped us with lighting, furniture and materials selection. It was a pure pleasure working with Ami. She is generous with her time and responds quickly to questions.
We are in the final stages of a major home renovation designed and executed by the PURE Design team. We first met with Ami and Don 18 months ago – and they were quickly able to present us with an exciting new vision of how to make our 1930’s home work for our modern day busy family. Ami radiates genuine warmth and immediately made us feel at ease. It has been exciting to see her vision become a reality and I can honestly say we love it all! We worked most closely with Don (Construction/Project Manager) and he was extremely professional, responsive, detail oriented and generally just an excellent person to work with! Home renovations are stressful – but generally, I knew I could relax knowing he would make sure everything was done RIGHT! As with all major home renovations, there were some delays and budget challenges – but we are over the moon with the result and now have a home we are excited to live in and proud to show off! A huge thank you to the PURE Design team!
Ami and Monica from PURE Design Inc have been an absolute dream to work with. From our very first call, I knew they were the way to go. Ami understood right away what kind of look I was going for which made my life (and my husband’s life) so much easier. I trusted them completely and they were able to design our dream home from the ground up, and I could not be happier. Ami took the time to really get to know us so now everyone in my family now has a room that reflects their own personality, especially the kids. My only regret is not having PURE construct the house (we used a separate builder); doing so would have saved us many headaches along the way. Thank you so much Ami and Monica for your tireless work and beautiful design!
Working with Ami from Pure for the past year has been a true pleasure.
Ami’s vision for the design of our home took into account our own style which she blended seemlessly with some prior renovations we started a couple of years earlier. Ami is incredibly upbeat and optimistic – no problem is too difficult to tackle! She is creative and innovative with solutions and is willing to be very flexible to incorporate our needs and wants! She has a high level of professionalism and customer service is a definite focus. We are looking forward to seeing it when it is entirely completed, but so far our home looks amazing and it beautifully reflects who we are as a family! Thank you to the Pure Team!
My wife and I are busy full time professionals with 2 young children.
We wanted to have a house with the look and feel of a high end hotel, and what the Pure Team created for us at the reveal blew us away! We held an open house party and all our guests said, “Your house puts our homes to shame…” Though as nice as it is to have “wowed” our family and friends, more importantly we couldn’t imagine the house being any more perfect for us. Our daughter squealed with delight when she viewed her room for the first time, and ran to her bed and jumped and snuggled in with the hugest smile on her little face. Her actions and response were exactly how the rest of us felt. We loved the fact that PURE handled both the design and contracting which gave us peace of mind and made it effortless for us. They are a one stop shop. We completely trusted them to create a sophisticated and comfortable home for us, and they came through with flying colours. They successfully took our ordinary house and transformed it into a beautiful dream home for our family to enjoy for years to come.
I hired Ami with the goal of finding a talented designer who could help me design a beautiful dream house from scratch (brand new construction) – and WOW did Ami deliver! WOW are the words uttered by everyone that visits us in our beautiful new home. Ami spent the time getting to know my husband and I so she was able to capture and design a home that incorporated our very different personalities and taste. The different textures (fabrics, wallpaper, materials), tones (both dark and light), materials, decor, detailing – from start to finish was a job well done. The result was a contemporary classical home that reflects today’s colour palates yet incorporated a look and feel that surely will transcend time (very important criteria for me). Ami was completely professional yet caring, patient and listened to what we liked/didn’t like and to our budget requirements. She made everything look like the high-end home we were building. Once you meet Ami, you will know that how I describe her is exactly who/how she is. I look forward to working with her again!
My wife and I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ami …
Meaghan and Amber from PURE Design Inc. From the first meeting we knew that they were the perfect fit for our project. Not only did they demonstrate exceptional skills, but also their passion and dedication are unparalleled. They were so innovative in trying to meet our budget whilst achieving an upscale and boutique look. We trusted them completely to help bring our vision to life. That is why we now have a one-of-a-kind store that no other has. Ami and Meaghan created a signature design (a small green house) that will undoubtedly be a special feature in all of our stores in the future. Thank you Ami, Meaghan and Amber for being the very best and the most dedicated design team we have had the honour of working with. We will have to come back to them for future store design and home!
From concept to design to project management, the Pure Team created something that was unique to our style and 100 year old character home. We are very pleased with the amazing transformation which includes a dream kitchen, spa master bathroom and many unique spaces in the house that our family will enjoy for many years to come. The renovation also included 2 separate one bedroom suites now with modern appliances and fixtures, and easily rented as a result. Throughout the project, Pure Design was professional, attentive to our needs, flexible and easy to work with and full of great ideas. We are very happy with the design of our place.
