Vancouver residential interior design firm: Curated Home by Chrissy & Co

Residential interior design

With all that’s involved in building or renovating a home, pulling every decision together to create a home that is cohesive — without being contrived — can be quite the balancing act.

Building a dream home is all about having the right vision and the right team. Knowing who the most trustworthy contractors are to selecting the best finishing materials are essential in creating a memorable home and design journey.

Below are integral design details to consider with building or renovating.

Blueprint design and space planning

Consult a designer in the early stages when planning a build or renovation. All too often the finer details of a home can get lost in the blueprint development and if not caught before the framing stage, correcting any shortcomings can be costly or in some cases impossible. From establishing the perfect exterior balance with window and door placement, to beautifully functional flow in how your furniture will translate in your space, going over a set of blueprints with an expert eye can completely transform your project from mediocre to exceptional.

At Curated Home, we pride ourselves in having an incredible eye for refining blueprints from even the most talented architects.

A poorly designed layout can make a 5000 SQ home feel like a 3000 SQ FT home, while a clever set of blueprints can make even the smallest homes feel expansive. It’s amazing how even a few feet from one room to the next can completely elevate a set of plans. Our interior designers can envision every detail of a space — from how your furniture layout will work with your fireplace and tv area, to how your widow placement will impact your level of natural lighting and drape positioning.

No detail is too small for consideration when it comes to planning the flow of your day to day life.

Kitchen Design

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. We will help you:

  • Select the right finishes to echo the spirt of your home is essential in designing a kitchen that will give you the wow factor needed to feed your soul the visual inspiration to bring out your inner chef.

  • Layout out the space perfectly to ensure a proper flow and aesthetic balance. You can have the same layout with multiple different kitchen design options, but not all designs are created equal.

A kitchen is so much more than maximizing storage space. It’s the core of a home and needs special consideration.

Bathroom Design

Who doesn’t want their bathroom to feel like a personal spa? Chrissy & Co will help you create a space that makes getting ready every morning an enjoyable expearnce.

Yes, everyone needs a washing station, shower, and toilet, but every clients needs are different, so we do the investigative due diligence to find out what your bathroom routine looks like everyday. Do you curl your hair? Do you like to sit down to apply your make up? Do you use an electric shaver or an old school flat blade and soap bowl?

Details matter when planning these often small and intimate spaces and we pride ourselves on ensuring that no detail is left behind.

Custom Millwork Design

A well designed home is one which utilizes clever custom storage solutions. North American design often underestimates the power of custom millwork design for areas such as the library, office, TV/entertainment area.

The style of your millwork can blend in and offer a subdued storage solution, or it can be showcase statement piece to anchor a room. The design possibilities are endless and we’re here to help you find the right one for you.

Lighting design

Lighting is the jewelry of your home that set the tone and mood. And it is one of the most fundamental decisions when designing a space. When carefully selected, lighting can drastically change the ambiance and nature from one room to the next. It can be the cornerstone that makes your home feel contemporary or traditional, vibrant and bright or sultry and cozy.

Poor lighting selection and placement can cheapen the look of a space while resulting in a home that will quickly date. An elegant lighting package is one that will withstand the test of time while enhancing the overall beauty and aesthetic of your space.

Knowing where to position wall sconces to accentuate the height of a ceiling and to create the perfect glow in a space to knowing what size and style chandelier to select in order to maximize the wow factor in your space without it being out of scale or obnoxious is essential.

And we plan switching locations, sensors, dimmers, and all of the technical in between so you don’t have to worry if you nailed it just right.
