A little bit about us

Clare Riley

Clare lives in Pemberton with her husband Tim, two children, Mason and Chloe and golden Lab Coda. Pemberton is a huge part of her story, living here and raising a family is something so special.


Clare has been in the Interior Design industry since 2012 studying at the Vancouver Interior Design Institute. Combining that with her previous 7 years experience as a fashion merchandiser being able to “style” a space was something that came naturally to her.

In 2017 she partnered to create a successful home staging business in the Sea to sky region. While staging is a huge part of the design process she eventually gravitated towards the Design. Being apart of projects from the beginning and working closely with clients is what makes the job so rewarding.


Her objective is to insure everyone feels at home in her space creating warm and inviting homes for everyone to enjoy.


Jennie Kyle

Jennie & husband Michael are thrilled to be raising their two boys in the beautiful village of Pemberton.  Both are passionate about community and sport & the importance of coaching youth.  She moved to Whistler British Columbia in 2002 after graduating from the University of Ottawa with honours in Social Sciences.  

Her curiosity for design began in the web design industry, completing a diploma in web publishing and web design from Langara college in 2006, using that knowledge to build personal web-based businesses.  She has since completed a complimentary diploma specializing in Digital Marketing in 2021.

Jennie has always been passionate about interior design and her eye for design naturally led her into the world of interiors.  She excitedly joined Clare Riley Design in 2021, an opportunity to listen & work with clients to help them create and bring their desired visions to reality.
