Uncovering the next top interior designer in Kelowna

Mission Group, Momentum Interiors and CATO students join forces for Dwell townhome design project.

On May 27, a lucky winner is going to receive a $1,000 shopping spree at Momentum Interiors. All you have to do is visit Dwell, a townhome community in Kelowna at 1851 Ambrosi St. on Saturday, May 26, or Sunday, May 27, from 1,to 4 p.m., and cast your vote for the Next Top Designer.

Mission Group, a well respected and multiple award-winning builder in Kelowna, has collaborated together with Momentum Interiors and Interior Design Students at CATO (Centre for Arts & Technology Okanagan) on a one of a kind project named The Next Top Designer.

Mission Group designed and built the trendy urban townhomes named Dwell, the interior design was completed by two teams of CATO students with design guidance and furnishings provided by Momentum Interiors. This unique collaboration has brought Kelowna businesses and students together.

Dwell is the trendy urban community in Mid-Town Kelowna on Ambrosi Road with modern exteriors, three levels of living space, and roof top patios all designed to appeal to the 20-30 age crowd. So it only seemed fitting for the CATO students to get involved in the design process.

CATO students under the direction of department head Gisela Scholze took up the challenge. Mission Group’s president Randall Shier approached Shannon and Gary Nystrom, of Momentum Interiors, to ask if they would supply the home furnishings and mentorship required throughout the design process. Momentum Interiors is the ultimate ‘one-stop shop’ for home interior design and décor. From concept to completion, Momentum is the only company in North America offering clients design, building, and furnishings in one centre.

Mission Group asked the interior design students to create two unique display homes, one targeted to a single male and the other targeted to a working couple with no children. For nearly four months, eight Interior Design Students (broken into two teams of four), worked hand in hand with Momentum Interiors in designing, selecting, and staging the two show homes at Dwell.

Both teams were encouraged to be creative, and were mentored by Nystrom.

Last month, more than 200 residents and visitors attended the show homes displaying the completed student works at Dwell.

Now, Mission Group, Momentum Interiors  and the CATO students want to know which of the two designs you like best.  Members of the public are encouraged to visit the site any Saturday and Sunday between 1- 4 p.m, tour the two homes, and then cast their ballot at the onsite entry box.

On May 27, a wrap-up party for the Next Top Designer at Dwell will be taking place from 1 to 5 p.m. Nystromwill draw the lucky winner of the $1000 shopping spree and announce who is voted the Next Top Designer at 4 p.m.
