Douglas Cridland credits a great deal of his signature colour palette to growing up in the prairies. The monochromatic colours that characterize his work are inspired by the bleaching effects of the bright prairie light. When blended with traditional architecture and modern elements, the end result is unarguably timeless in restraint, yet reflective of each client. More than a specific style, Cridland’s design aesthetic is a way of thinking, a lifestyle and an attitude. His over 25‑year career has produced a portfolio that includes residential, retail, and office spaces — many of which have been featured on television and in national publications.
