Welcome!

I’m Krista Martens, Principal Designer & Founder of Beyond Measure Design Inc. I grew up in small town Saskatchewan where I was drawn to art, music & construction from an early age. I followed my passion for design to Saskatchewan Polytechnic(previously SIAST Palliser Campus in Moose Jaw)where I enrolled in the Architectural & Building Technology program. In 1999 I graduated & headed out into the home building industry where I have been working ever since.

In 2008 I took a leap of faith & started Beyond Measure Design Inc. My vision was to create a firm that had a different perspective on residential design. A firm that would take the time needed to listen to a clients dreams for their home & then through collaboration, help them create that space that uniquely reflected them. I love form & function and strive to make each design a home, not just a house.

When I’m not in front of my computer designing homes you’ll find me spending my time with my 8 year old daughter Haylee & husband of 18 years (yes I said 18!) Ryan. We are a family that enjoys cooking together, we play a mean game of Settlers of Catan & of course, enjoy the many festivals and events in this amazing City!

I just want to say “Thank you!” to all the amazing clients who have entrusted me to create their dream home. This summer marks the 10th year for Beyond Measure Design Inc. & I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!

    Discovering my superpower

    Posted on by

    As you can see, I’ve been a little lax in the blog department. I could tell you the myriad of excuses – trust me, there were many.  It has taken me time to discover the real reason why…ready? I’ve been scared. Scared to share my perspective, my thoughts, and my voice. Hesitant to really embody […]

    Design Perspective

    Posted on by

    I started this post by initially thinking about just sharing the Home Design Blogs I love but then I started thinking…there is a greater definition to “design” that warrants some exploration. When I use the word “design” it can be used in two very different definitions. The most common is certainly the first…a plan or a drawings […]

    Freedom to Choose

    Posted on by

    I’m sure we are all feeling the same way. Schools back in session. Activities have commenced. Schedule has gone haywire. Your “to do” list replenishes itself daily. As women who are running businesses while also keeping a household running we live in constant search of the illusive holy grail…work/life balance. We slip into comparison with other […]

    Inhabit in retrospect

    Posted on by

    It’s now been a couple of month since I stepped up(with a few nerves and jitters) & held my first design workshop, Inhabit. Inhabit was the culmination of wanting to share the story about the journey our family undertook while designing our home in Saskatoon but the deeper desire was to start a conversation about how […]

    9 years – 9 lessons

    Posted on by

    Starting a business or being an entrepreneur is NOT the simple life. When I started Beyond Measure 9 years ago I went into this adventure as a person who was incredibly skilled at the job of being an Architectural Technologist, not someone who thought she’d be in business for herself necessarily. That being said, a […]

    Shifting Paradigms

    Posted on by

    This year marks BMD’s 9 year birthday as well as my 18th year working in residential design. For me, it’s a significant milestone that has cause me to pause and reflect. When I created BMD there was a confluence of situations that made me take stock of where I was in life. In the end […]

    Luminosity

    Posted on by

    As I am writing this I am feeling a bit of an emotional hangover. Last Tuesday night I was asked to step out of my comfort zone & be the master of ceremonies for Luminosity-an event celebrating women’s leadership created by none other than Jami Young. My first fleeting thought when Jami called me the […]

    A look inside

    Posted on by

    Have you ever dreamt about what your home could be? What would you do to change a space? How would you like to feel in the space? These are all relative questions-ones we(Ryan & I) spent plenty of time asking ourselves while we walked the process of designing our forever home. 2 years ago we […]

    Defining Leadership

    Posted on by

    How do you define business leadership? I have been thinking about this a lot lately… mostly because I am working through future planning for my business. One of the questions I’ve asked myself often is “Do you have what it takes to lead others?” The inner critic, of course, has an opinion. In reality it is […]

    Our need to Compare

    Posted on by

    From time to time we all fall into the trap of comparing our life to someone else. We look at others and wish we had what they had or were doing what they were doing. Comparison is something I openly admit I struggle with. As far back as I can remember I’ve always had this feeling of […]
