Designers of the Year 2023: These Are Your All-Star Interior Design Judges
Our designer series returns with Annaliesse Kelly and Andrea Rodman on February 1, 2023.
After an incredible return to in-person WL Design Talks in June, we’re thrilled to announce our next talk in the series: Smart Space Planning on February 1 at Resource Furniture.
Our WL Design Talks series brings together designers and architects to network, take in great discussion from top design pros—and grab a glass of wine, too.
And for our next in the series, we’re digging into Smart Space Planning. From designing clever storage solutions to creating a comfortable flow in a room, smart space planning is about more than just small space design. Designers Annaliesse Kelly and Andrea Rodman will be joining our editorial director Anicka Quin to share their own insights, along with a few great projects that exemplify great design.
The talks are eligible for one non-IDCEC hour of education credits for IDIBC members.
We’re looking forward to re-connecting with old friends and creating new design connections. The event is free: you just need to register to secure your spot!
WL Design Talks at Resource Furniture, 124 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
Wednesday, February 1, 2022
Doors open at 5:30 pm for networking and refreshments.
Free registration via Eventbrite—register here.

AK Design’s work has been featured extensively in the press, including in Western Living, Living Etc, Dwell, BC Living, Rue Magazine and more.

Andrea started her career in the design industry in 2002 and has worked on many incredible homes, some of which have been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House and Home, and Western Living magazine, among others. Andrea grew up in between Toronto and Sydney Australia with an English-born, Australian raised mother. She grew up traveling and seeing the world at a very young age. After moving back to Canada in her mid twenties after living five years abroad, Andrea planted roots in Vancouver B.C and began her interior design career. Andrea Rodman Interiors was established in 2008 and has created alliances with preferred architects, builders and craftspeople in the Vancouver area and throughout B.C. Andrea holds a diploma for Interior Design from BCIT and a diploma of Fashion Design from Blanche Macdonald. Andrea was also educated in the Arts York program in Toronto for the performing arts.
Andrea’s work was recognized by Western Living magazine’s Designer of the Year Awards where she was awarded the prestigious Robert Ledingham Memorial award for Emerging Interior Designer and nominated as a finalist for Interior Designer of the Year.
