Little Pacific Design Studio has quickly become one of Spokane’s favorite design studios, known for it’s modern yet approachable aesthetic. Designing spaces that are tailored to our clients’ needs and guiding the project through construction is our passion. We believe our physical environments have an important role in improving our well-being, but they also have a major environmental impact. From design to demolition and construction, the choices we make can either harm or help our personal health as well as the planet.
During the design process, we advocate for a holistic approach, often procuring designs with eco-friendly options while maintaining a beautiful modern style. While selecting eco-friendly finishes is not a requirement for our clients, we have found that over time, some of our favorite sources have made the switch to more environmentally conscious practices. The best part is they don’t always cost more than their non-sustainable competitors! Ranging from flooring, counters, cabinetry, paint, tile, and more, we have a diverse sample library of products from companies. During demolition, we strive to contribute to companies who promise reuse or recycling of everything ranging from fixtures, appliances, cabinetry, flooring, and more. Our goal is to limit what we take to a landfill. Our contractors conduct proper testing procedures for hazards such as lead and asbestos and follow appropriate guidelines for safe removal. We are always seeking out trades who don’t believe in taking shortcuts on our homes or our health.
Most importantly, our studio is here to improve the lives of our clients. We whole-heartedly believe in the psychological difference that a happy environment can have on us. From your home to your workplace, having a space that functions well and fits your aesthetic will most definitely improve your lifestyle and mood. We’ve seen and heard it as each client starts living in their new space and feels a complete shift in their life. When they experience it at that deeper level, time and time again, we know we are doing our job well.
