My projects are timeless because they incorporate references to the past; and they are all organically designed which act as subtle seduction of the senses, felt but not spoken.
I was raised in the rain-forest of the Pacific Northwest of Canada. I draw inspiration from the aesthetics of nature, my Haida Culture. I was educated in New York at the New York School of Interior Design where I was the only foreigner to win the most valuable scholarship in the school – The Judith T. Collins Scholarship – since the schools inception in 1918.

My designs aim at bringing your family closer together
I create a home design not only comfortable and functional but that also bring families together in an efficient way. Your home should express who you are so that when you return home you feel that soothing “you’ve arrived” feeling. Your home needs to be a place of enjoyment and when you receive friends and family, you will find that there is nothing more luxurious than entertaining in your own home.
I produce environments that seduce the senses and leaves the viewer with a memory that will last forever
I take the essence of your business in a functional way and embodying the design with a vibration that moves the client in a deep unconscious level, sensually, which has them coming back for more.
We use your company's philosophy of business and reflect it in your design
We embody your design with your corporate style, digging out the spirit of the corporation to express this organically with the clients, leaving them with an impression that is not only memorable but exciting.

“In a world of many television inspired designer wanna-be’s, Gina Mae Schubert rises far above the crowd as the rare – real thing.
Gina Mae gently extrudes the desires of imagery, sense of purpose and mood from her client, whether corporate or individual, and impeccably implements these wishes in the finished physical design.
I recommend her highly, having utilized Gina Mae Schubert Design for two homes as well as corporately. She gives exceptional value and is very easy to work with.”
“I have worked with Gina Mae Schubert on our 2nd home in the Hamptons in NY. She was able to turn a 1960s basic country home into a luxurious yet charming country oasis. Her use of wonderful colors, textures, and smart re-configuration of our spaces created a beautiful, welcoming, open plan for our entire family and guests to enjoy. She turned our peculiar and small master bedroom and bathroom into a very romantic, light filled space and brought in elements of French country furniture, and luxurious textiles and fabrics with a clean and creative style.”
