the company

Reviving Design was established in 2008, specializing in design consulting and small remodel project management services in their hometown area of 1000 Islands, Ontario.

Through diverse opportunities, the business grew to include complete design work and an in-house contracting team for renovation projects.

Since 2018, Reviving Design & Contracting has been proudly located on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia and has continuously grown their team of professionals every year.

​James and Angela are partners in both their personal and business life and provide a full service contracting and design business to the Lunenburg County. With their combined skills they are able to provide a unique service and have the ability to see the project from both the construction and finishing details sides for a cohesive and seamless project.

Located on Main Street in Mahone Bay, clients are welcomed into the street-front studio to discuss their upcoming projects whether it be design, build, remodel or decorating and review the product and material samples chosen for their project.

Since they are not a building or decorating center but independent consultants and contractors, they are not limited to specific brands or products and are able to choose from any vendor or supplier that would fit your needs for your custom project.

Business is very important to them and they believe being professional and detail-oriented are key to a successful relationship with the client and the project outcome.

Design Consultant

Lead Contractor

Angela has project management and a logistics background, which allows her to carry those skills forward on her clients' projects. As a project manager, she is hands-on and understands the construction phase as much as the finishing details.

She offers floorplan drawings and 3D renderings for her renovation and interior design clients, which allows them to see the transformation before the job begins.

Her signature for decorating is mixing old with new and creating spaces with her client's vision in mind.

Angela is a certified home stager.

With well over 20 years of experience in the construction industry James brings with him experience in all facets of renovation and new build construction. Previously an owner of his own flooring and tile installation company with multiple employees, James leads a clean and organized job site and has great attention for finishing details.

He is known for his flawless install work with hardwood flooring and enjoys working with reclaimed wood for custom timber projects such as shelving, architectural accent beams and fireplace mantels.

Sue brings fifteen years of hands-on design experience, helping clients achieve their dream interiors. She has a background with Benjamin Moore as a colour consultant and worked with other firms as well as her own business as an interior decorator and home stager. Sue understands the importance of homeowners being able to visualize their redesign and includes her design concepts with creative hand drawings of their interior spaces. Angela and James are grateful to have such talent representing our business.
