Victoria Stephens - Junior Designer
As Atmosphere’s Intermediate Designer, Victoria plays an integral role in ensuring client satisfaction by providing updates and specifications, assisting Trevor and Curtis with specifics, and creating inspiring options to help narrow the design direction and ensure clients receive the space of their dreams.
With a life-long interest in design that sprung from her 13 different home moves during childhood, Victoria pursued her studies of interior design at the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Burnaby, BC. Relocating to Saskatoon with her husband, she leaped at the opportunity to learn from Trevor and Curtis at Atmosphere Interior Design and hasn’t looked back since.
Drawing on cues from surrounding architecture and landscape, Victoria draws design inspiration from her surroundings to ensure the interior both blends with and stands out from its environment. She is also an avid lover of Australian design, particularly the importance it places on the use of materiality in its different forms.
When she’s not working to bring clients’ visions to life, Victoria enjoys exploring her neighbourhood of Riversdale and taking walks around the river and Victoria Park. Always looking to grow, she’s passionate about trying new things, with her latest obsessions being pottery class, cross-country skiing, and making pasta from scratch.
