Meet Our Designers

In your own words what is it that you bring to each of your kitchen designs?

I have been in the cabinet industry for several years. I’m located in the North Okanagan – and can assist you out of the Vernon Showroom.

I’ve developed my trade from the ground up! My extensive knowledge includes hands-on training with a European custom cabinet maker, advancing through the ranks and departments learning all aspects of cabinet manufacturing. From sanding, to millwork, door construction, finishing. Finally, thanks to Westwood’s Founder; Nick Grasa, who (along with many other forward-thinking, progressive, cabinet professionals), mentored me into the Designer I am today!

My mission to success is to listen carefully and assess my client’s personal style to create a living space, that balance aesthetics with functionality and warmth.  'A Design You'll Want To Gather Around!'

From traditional to contemporary I will work closely with clients making their experience less stressful & more enjoyable, while creating a space they will enjoy well into the future. My clients will also benefit, from my attention to detail that affords them to take advantage of my trained eye, catching issues that may arise during the on-site measure and fit, resulting in minimal margins of error.

"Design is not just about what it looks and feels like. More importantly, Design is about how it works!" - Steve Jobs

How many years have you been with Westwood?

Which time? Every time I move on to gain further experience, I realize my roots are solidly grounded at Westwood!

What is your favourite place in the Okanagan?

My favourite place in the Okanagan is on Mable Lake. ‘With my toes in the water, chair in the sand, Not a worry in the world, a cold drink in my hand.’ Life is good!

Comments from Celeste's customers...

" Our heritage home celebrated its 100th birthday this year with a new kitchen, so we started with a kitchen consult. Celeste did not disappoint! Her many years of experience in the kitchen design business equipped her to give us solid advice and practical design solutions. What is true in physics, is true in kitchen design, it seems; for every action there is a reaction. Celeste saved us from mistaken actions because she was able to foresee the reactions. She answered a million questions (at least) as she guided us through the whole process, but most importantly, she really listened to our input.

The result is a kitchen that functions efficiently and looks beautiful. We replaced a 50-year-old kitchen - and yes, it did look like something from the sixties - with an up-to-date kitchen that looks just right in a 100-year-old house!"   M.S. Shaw
