About Veronica Wakeham

Veronica Wakeham has been working with interior design clients in Vancouver for over ten years.
In 1996, she earned a degree in Commerce and began consulting with interior designers, always questioning why some interior designer's projects seem destined for success while others struggled despite great ideas, passion and almost unlimited budgets. Finally she cracked the code.

By bringing sound project management and budget attention in line with design considerations these processes worked supportively, rather than as second cousins to design. At heart, all clients desire good design. But none want the cost over-runs and missed deadlines which result from over-emphasis on design without proper attention to a fixed budget and a practical timeline.

In 2001, reflecting her passion for fabrics, Veronica opened Terra Nova Linen House, a specialty linen showroom in Yaletown. However, due to demand for her design expertise this business has been overtaken by interior design with a heavy emphasis on project management. There seems to be truth that design is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration!

Terra Nova Interiors professional services are all provided by reliable trades who are scheduled and managed by Veronica and her design team. These services include design direction, space planning and color and fabric coordinating, hardwood flooring, rugs and carpeting, furnishings and finishes, millwork and tiles, window treatments and hardware, painting and wall-papering, in addition to luxury linens.

In 2006, Veronica became resident designer for The Living Show broadcast on Novus Channel 4 and in rich media online, where she demonstrates weekly how to practically tackle with successful outcomes, mid to high-end design projects, particularly in downtown Vancouver.
