Tamara is known for her ability to bring interior spaces to life, and maybe slightly for her love for fashion, her hectic social life/leisure travel schedule, and maybe even for her love for wine. However, her true passion is inspiring people to live their best life. Growing up in the commercial construction world in an entrepreneurial family, Tamara came by her keen interest for business honestly. Some of her favourite memories were hanging around the family office, visiting job sites, and taking a swing on the wrecking ball of the crane. When it came time to start a business of her own, Tamara’s interests drew her to combining her passions for style and lifestyle by pursuing a career in interior design. And true to her upbringing, she couldn’t manage to leave her love for construction behind. In 2011 she opened Metric Design which provides full projects including interior design/decorating right through to construction for both commercial and residential clients. Metric’s unique offering has brought in numerous awards including the Sabex “New Business Venture” award, within the first year of opening. Over the years the business has evolved and shifted as it should but most importantly, has always stayed true to Tamara’s vision. Tamara believes in surging creativity into every design. “To me, brilliant design comes when capturing the essence of a client and injecting it into a space. It’s like a canvas of the individual that we are designing for. Whether it’s a business, young family, or empty nesters, the design should be a careful reflection of them, not us. I have always loved eclectic design because it is interesting, just like the people that we design for. People come to Metric knowing that in the end, they were a part of the creation.” On the family side, The Bowman’s are known for getting involved. From community fundraisers to numerous charities and clubs, countess hours are dedicated to helping out. Tamara’s Husband Cary Bowman, also of an entrepreneurial spirit, co-founded and opened the unstoppable Lucky Bastard Distillery @lbdistillers in Saskatoon. Together they have two teenage children, who as likeminded entrepreneurs, started a company by making a prototype for custom wooden paddleball sets, which can now be found in local sporting good stores and on Amazon! @caprifresobol. Tamara considers herself a dedicated soccer Mom (whose kids don’t play soccer), as well as a self-proclaimed connoisseur of all things food & drink. Tamara spends her down-time hanging with family & friends, loves exploring the world, a spontaneous dance party, and is a closet karaoke enthusiast.
