West Acre was built on the idea that every client, site and interior is distinct. As a studio, we purposefully avoid a branded style. We believe our job is to find the design concept gifted to us by the site and the architecture and then curate interiors that are authentic to you and your project.  While we intentionally resist a branded style, we consistently depend on our branded design process.  Our hallmark method of organizing the interior design process has proven to deliver high quality results, efficient progress and an enjoyable client experience.

An enjoyable client experience is always top of mind for West Acre's Principal, Taryn Chisholm.  Taryn is a natural service provider and she brings a powerful combination of design and business acumen to West Acre. 

Taryn earned a Bachelor of Interior Design from Kwantlen Polytechnic University and worked for several local and national design firms prior to opening West Acre.

Taryn also holds a Bachelor of Commerce and previously worked in human resources for a national energy company. With her unique combination of education and experience, Taryn is able to design innovative, client-focused spaces that balance the project realities of schedule and budget.  

Taryn lives on the West Coast with her husband, Bradley, and their science-loving son.  When she is not in the studio, she loves spa-ing (yes, it is a verb),  watching Formula 1 and drinking lattes.
