Design is a collaborative process, and every project needs a village
in order to bring it into fruition.
Atmosphere Interior Design is one of the more influential and well-known interior design businesses in Western Canada. Our team strives to not only provide exceptional design, but to also serve our customers and clients, as well as to become a resource for the broader design community. Everyone at Atmosphere believes in making the world a more beautiful place - through the support of our clients (who become like family), through our contacts in the design community, and through the operation of the design lounge, we make that happen.
Trevor Ciona and Curtis Elmy
Trevor and Curtis’ partnership is one shared in all areas of life. The key to Atmosphere’s success over the years could easily be the strength of their relationship and how they are able to share in all aspects of the creative process. Their similar inspirational influences and styles has allowed for cohesiveness to their design aesthetic that continues to evolve over time and from project to project. This signature style is recognizable across Canada, south of the border through the US and around the globe through client referrals and the power of print and social media.
Together, Trevor and Curtis have set their standard to be high with a dedication to the trade that is never ending. They are always educating themselves through research, travel, creative conflict and from what their clients are telling them – they have also become incredible mind readers, maintaining their client’s trust to be solid and unwavering.
Featured in several of the country’s leading design magazines, House + Home, Style at Home, Canadian Home Trends, and Western Living – they continue to leave their mark in the Canadian Design Industry. Their blend of traditional and contemporary accents has garnered plenty of attention and made the duo de facto ambassadors for Saskatoon’s growing design scene. Style at Home named them Saskatoon’s “Kings of Style” for their striking design style. In both 2013 and 2014, they were voted Western Living’s Designers of the Year , first as “The One to Watch” and then with the coveted Robert Ledingham Memorial Award for Western Canada’s emerging designer. This recognition solidified them as one the leading design teams in Western Canada.
The success of Atmosphere Interior Design has led them to their stunning new design studio, located in the rejuvenated and trendy Riversdale district of Saskatoon. Their two storey headquarters is home to a main floor showroom featuring various luxurious product lines that the firm represents and a second floor studio that houses their design offices and an impeccable textile, wallcovering and product library where all of their projects are realized and managed.
When not engaged with clients and their projects, the two value and enjoy spending as much time with their friends and family as possible. Dedicated to maintaining a healthy lifestyle – they strike a balance with a regular fitness schedule that allows them to recharge at the end of a long day in the office.
Being continually inspired and motivated in all areas of life, Trevor and Curtis take regular trips to New York, Palm Springs and Los Angeles, where their passion for design and the success of their business is encouraged and influenced.

Rhonda Ciona - Office Manager
Rhonda relocated back to Saskatoon after spending many years in Yellowknife, NT. Rhonda’s love for family and the desire to raise her family in the community where she grew up in is what drew her back to Saskatchewan. After a successful career in the Diamond Industry, Rhonda is again surrounded by beautiful objects and spaces – the world of Atmosphere Interior Design.
Rhonda manages the day to day operations at AID, all aspects of the design process will typically end up in Rhonda’s office. Her exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail allow for all projects to run smoothly and efficiently. Managing projects and working alongside the team of trades that contribute to our projects is another one of Rhonda’s specialties – team building and understanding what makes for a successful install relies heavily on her shoulders.

Away from the office, you will find Rhonda enjoying some of the many festivals and events in and around the city with her family. She is a sucker for a great book and a glass (or two) of Pinot Grigio on ice and loves researching and planning the next great vacation and adventure.

Julie Tenaschuk – Designer / Project Manager
After obtaining her Interior Design Technologist Diploma, Julie worked a number of years gaining custom cabinetry experience. Julie joined the Atmosphere Interior Design team to broaden her horizons as a designer - where change, diverse projects and responsibilities feed her appetite for the unknown.
Within the Atmosphere Interior Design offices, you will see Julie working alongside Curtis and Trevor in AutoCAD, acting us a sound board for their vision while injecting her own design style and sharing her years of technical experience in creating a truly functional home. When not in the creative process, Julie manages current projects by facilitating all aspects of the construction and furnishings installation process.
"So much of being a designer is envisioning, so in my spare time I love to do things with my hands - cooking, playing sports, gardening and spending time with my family. I believe you can learn a lot about me through what you see in my home, which is why I like to keep things casual, warm and very unique.
I love the satisfaction that comes from watching something you’re so invested in come to fruition, understanding and contemplating the series of steps it takes to complete one’s vision."

Josh Olsen – Design Assistant / Showroom Sales
Josh made the move to Saskatoon from Alberta in 2006, and is mistaken for a home grown local because of his resume working around the city in various areas of the customer service industry. For much of that time he worked full time in the financial industry, but felt the need to branch off into the creative world. It was a position in home staging, where he relished and thrived in the creative process managing and curating projects on his own.
This turn led him to Atmosphere Interior Design in the fall of 2017, where he is ecstatic to be a part of this dynamic team and to be taken under the wings of Trevor and Curtis and continue his creative evolution. Josh assists with client requests, project specifications, scouting new products and the never ending research in all that is new in the world of Interior Design. Josh manages the main floor showroom and assists all other staff in the project management area of the business.
Josh is also passionate about his health and fitness, in his free time you can catch Josh at one of Saskatoon’s fitness studios. He enjoys travelling and gets away whenever he can in search of fun and new inspiration.
