// People Matter Most
Listening is the key to good design. From there, it’s a process of breaking down the spoken and unspoken needs to better interpret what will work best for the client, their lifestyle, and design goals. I am committed to learning about a client's individual personality, vision, and needs. Getting to know my clients personally, allows me to get a good understanding of how they live and what makes them connect with their spaces. Whether it's a colour scheme, furniture piece, or sentimental belonging... I'm most interested in digging deep to define what's important in a space and create a design that will make you feel right at home.
// Your Home Should Be A Reflection Of You
A home is a place that everyone can and should have a connection with. The most beautiful spaces incorporate a combination of layers, textures and collective styles that create an environment that reflect your personal taste and style. I believe great design comes from the heart, and in order for a space to truly work ... we have to love it. No matter what your personal style, I strive to ensure every space is functional, beautiful, comfortable and uniquely yours.
// About Me
I have been an interior designer for over 15 years and enjoy the ever-evolving cycle of design. I attend countless workshops, design shows and educational seminars and love learning about new, innovative materials to work with. Design allows me to be engaged and present and continually challenge myself to anticipate what’s essential, and what’s at the core of my clients’ needs and vision.
As a designer, I'm instinctive, passionate and always down to earth. I celebrate the rituals of everyday living and encourage my clients to create spaces that are not just beautiful, but entirely livable. I don't believe good design requires starting from scratch. I find inspiration in a myriad of styles, and enjoy shopping an existing space for great pieces that can be re-purposed or re-invented.
I love pushing creative boundaries and helping my clients transform their homes into a place they absolutely love. I believe everyone should enjoy the freedom and relaxation of an organized space that shines and I work hard to create cozy, reinvented living spaces where no budget is too small to make a difference. I work on residential and commercial projects of all sizes and can help guide you to achieve your vision for a great, functional space.

// Giving Back
Mamas for Mamas is a non-profit organization located in Kelowna, British Columbia that supports mothers in crisis, and provides ongoing support for low income moms and their kids. This organization is near and dear to my heart and I work with the team there on a weekly basis to help support their movement. Often times, mom's in crisis don't have the time or resources to design and organize their homes. My goal is to work with mom's in need and other local organizations to provide these families with free design advice and a redesign of their homes to ease stress and create a warm and harmonized environment for them and their children.
We want to thank you for all you have done to make our work space welcoming and comfortable.
When we decided to update the office, we were overwhelmed and did not know where to start. We mentioned a couple of colours we wanted to incorporate in the new design and that was it! Within two days you found the piece of art that became the focal point of the project. You always listened carefully to any ideas or interests we had and knew exactly how to make them come alive. You kept us on track and budget and for that we are grateful.
We love our work space now and it is all thanks to you.
My house has become a space of serenity and beauty because of my designer Cindy. Her famous words I will forever have in my mind are “Do you love it?” Meaning, if you do not love it, do not buy it or have it in your house. I had designers in the past and I felt it was more about their ideas and what should fit in my space, never considering what is important to me or my family. Cindy has taken the time to respond to my numerous texts and changing ideas, feelings about the space we are decorating. She is one of a kind and full of beauty, ideas, and does not rush the process. Decorating does not happen in a day and is a process, which I will be forever grateful for her patience, professionalism and kindness.
I have had the pleasure of working with Cindy on decorating several of my homes, both in Canada and the US. Both small and large projects.
Cindy has a talent that can not be taught in school. It’s something that I am sure she was born with.
She is very respectful of my taste and budget. She is able to work magic with what I have already in my home and is able to add to it with a natural flow. I have had other decorators that are very vanilla with their ideas and they have wanted to decorate in the style “they preferred”. Cindy listens to me and works to complete projects that are extremely personalized to my lifestyle and homes.
I will continue to use her through my decorating ventures and highly recommend her to anyone.
HOUSE IS SOLD! Subjects are officially off.. Look out Ellison, here we come! It's exciting but bittersweet to leave the place where we brought home our two babies, learned to adult, created Mamas...the only home we've known as a family will soon be a series of fond memories. Looking forward to making new memories in our new home on Parkdale with great neighbors and friends.
Thanks you Cindy Brewster for staging our home and making it so irresistible it sold in 3 days, with help from our main man Chris of course!
I can’t thank you enough. My experience with you was so positive and professional. After you asked me a few questions to get to know me and my lifestyle, you then started working tirelessly to transpose my home into exactly what I envisioned but could have never done so well or in such a short period of time. You decluttered and rearranged things I already had in my home between the two floors as well as purchased a few key items that made my home feel totally fresh, new and inviting for my guests. Most important was that it was a tranquil sanctuary for me in my private spaces. Thank you for helping me get what I’ve always wanted and never seemed to have the time or skill to complete.

If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it in a closet somewhere.
