Meet the Team
Before becoming a kitchen designer in 2003, Arlie spent 16 years in photography. With many learned skills such as composition, colour, and balance as well as a natural sense for business, it was a smooth transition for her into kitchen design. Now, with over thirteen years experience and 400 hundred kitchens later, she continues to love what she does and takes pride in every project she manages.
Established in 2009, Cornerstone Kitchens & Design Ltd. is proud to offer their very own cabinet line, custom made locally on the North Shore. Since starting Cornerstone with her long time friend, Nikki Newson, Arlie met her husband and now has 2 small children. Arlie is known by her clients for her attention to detail in design, professional manner, and as one who produces what she promises.
She is grateful for all the referrals that she has received in the past and is looking forward to creating many more beautiful kitchens in the years to come.
Nikki was born and raised in England. In 1989 she immigrated to Vancouver and eventually settled on the North Shore where she now resides with her husband and 2 daughters.
For the last ten years, Nikki has worked as a Real Estate Agent in Metro Vancouver. Her area of expertise was in new home sales working with developers and real estate marketing companies. Nikki has gained valuable experience in sales and marketing, promotions, client contact, and interior home decor.
Nikki enjoys building relationships with her clients and knows that exceptional client service is the key to a successful business. She is excited to put all of her knowledge to work in creating a memorable experience for each and every client of Cornerstone Kitchens & Design Ltd.
Originally from Quebec, Gabriella has now been on the West Coast for over 2 years and happily calls Vancouver her home. Motivated by a strong passion for arts and design, she did her Interior Design Certificate on the East Coast and immediately started working in the industry to gain skills and experience.
Valuing functionality, aesthetic, and relationship with clients, Gabriella will create your kitchen to reflect your taste and make your renovation experience stress free and delightful.
