Ulya Jensen is one of Ottawa’s leading designers. What started as a part-time design consultation venture back in 1996 has flourished into a full scale, high-profile interior design firm, Ulya Jensen Interiors. With a background in sales, human resources and design, Ulya’s ability to understand her client’s needs are second to none. She believes in creating personalized spaces for each unique individual. Commercial and residential projects span from Oakville and the Toronto area to Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley. Ulya also believes in drawing upon local talent when she can for her various design projects. She is a firm advocate of mentoring and developing new design grads, and has assisted in many co-op programs.
Bringing design to the masses, Ulya was selected from thousands of applicants to participate in HGTV's Designer Superstar Challenge II. Ulya placed 1st in an on-line popularity poll run by HGTV and finished as one of Canada’s top 3 designers. Featured regularly on Rogers Television and CTV morning live Ottawa, Ulya's design prowess can also be seen on HGTV’s Home to Flip™ with Peter Fallico. Ulya is featured regularly in The Ottawa Citizen, contributes to RONAM mag an online Design magazine and has also won the Canadian House & Home’s annual design contest.
In early 2013, Ulya Jensen joined the MAAX BATH EXPERIENCE in a cross-country spring tour as its designer spokesperson. Ulya has been working with MAAX products for many years and has come to appreciate MAAX's commitment to addressing the needs of its customers. She is excited to reach out directly to Canadian homeowners and DIY-ers from coast-to-coast beginning in April to help them design and build bathroom spaces they never thought they could have!
