ABOUT THE DESIGNER / A PROPOS DE LA DESIGNER
Owner & Designer
Fondatrice & Designer
Nis Interior Designs
Hi, my name is Anaïs, I am a serial entrepreneur originally from Quebec City; Designer and owner of Nis Interior Designs, as well as the Founder and CEO of Atlantic Cirque Ltd, school of circus arts established in 2002, located in beautiful Nova Scotia.
During my career as a circus artist, I have performed hundreds of shows and taught many students in 3 circus schools I have opened over the years in Quebec, New-Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I have always had a strong "artistic" side, both on stage and at home. Reinventing the space I live in with paint, design and decor has always been something I've done. When my husband and I bought our latest house, it was my chance to fulfilled my dream of designing a space from the floor-plan stage, to the construction phase, to the final decorating touches. Taking on this main floor renovation was an opportunity for me to see if I should turn this passion into a new business. Needless to say, I loved every step of the project and quickly signed up for the Interior Designer course at the Vancouver Interior Design Institute. Since graduating from the program with an additional certification in Home Staging & Property Styling, I am living my passion for design with every new client, every new project and I continue to oversee the daily operations of Atlantic Cirque while balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship.
Oh yes, before I forget...and Nis (Nis Interior Designs) was my nickname in high school.
