At Outlooks Design we really care. Our lead designer Paula Grypma says nothing makes her happier than the process of making her clients’ home décor dreams a reality. She loves sourcing the perfect fabrics and finding the perfect solutions for window coverings that filter light, protect privacy, and function as beautifully as they look.
Paula has been creating custom window coverings, draperies and soft furnishings solutions for over 20 years, starting with a small home-based business in the Saanich Peninsula near Victoria, BC, while her three children were young. Once they became more independent, Paula continued learning her craft at several large custom-design houses in Victoria.
Today, her studio, complete with a full range of window coverings, including blinds, fabric and hardware samples, is located just off Beacon Avenue in Sidney, BC. She also provides her clients with custom bedding and bed linen options through the Cover Story Bedding line.
Paula specializes in fabrics because she loves what they can accomplish in a room; get them right, and any space – whether it’s a room, a boat, a store or an office – will feel and look complete. Through the many lines we carry, we can also find the perfect wallpaper for any space in your home.
She adds, “years of experience in the business have taught me that personal care is the best way to ensure my clients get exactly what they want in window covering treatments and soft furnishings. I realize how happy it makes me when I see the look of delight on their faces after the unveiling! We are committed to upholding our most cherished values in every project and task we take on.”
