Formerly a pharmaceutical executive specializing in neuropsychology, founder and principal, Giovanna Averill, has experienced how highly demanding careers and hectic lives can compete with creating a revitalizing, functional and stylish home. With this in mind, and moved by her love of interior design and its transformative capacity, she left her successful career to train as an interior designer, graduating with honors from the Visual College of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C.
With an entrepreneurial spirit, she launched Giovanna Averill Interiors, specializing in live-ably luxurious spaces for busy professionals. The firm was recognized with an invitation to be a featured designer for the gala charity event, Dinner by Design 2016. The resulting design installation was also exhibited at the highly anticipated 2016 Vancouver Interior Design Show West.
Giovanna is a provisional member of IDIBC (Interior Design Institute of BC) and is involved in the local design scene, through charitable activities, student mentoring and creating educational workshops for her peers.
