Yumi discovered her passion for interior design when she renovated her home she used to live in. She enjoyed the whole interior design process – space planning, selecting materials and finishes, and making the spaces not only beautiful, but also functional and practical. She discovered that she could provide a great experience through her creativity. To take her interior design interest to the next level, she enrolled in the Interior design program at the British Columbia Institutional Technology and earned her certificate in Interior Design in 2013.
Over next 5 years, Yumi honed her skills while working at global Danish company in a senior designer/stylist rolls. In 2015, one of Yumi’ design projects was featured on BoConcept’s Corporate global website and was used to inspire many BoConcept clients in over 60 different countries. Working closely with her clients on design projects inspired Yumi to create her own design company. In 2018 YU+ME Design was born, enabling Yumi to continue providing “WOW” interiors to her clients..
Yumi is also an interior design ambassador for Casaza.ca, founded by Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, and an interior design contributor for Canadian Home Trend Magazine.
