My name is Marina Pavlova, and I am a full-service interior decorator based in Ottawa, specializing in creating authentic, functional, and elevated homes. You’ve come to the right place if you’re seeking a designer to help you realize the full potential of your home. I can maximize your spaces, solve complex design dilemmas, and guide you through the process to rekindle your love for your home. Perhaps you’re a busy professional looking for a comprehensive decorating or renovation experience without the endless hours of store browsing and the overwhelm of choices. Alternatively, you might be someone searching for a smooth turnkey solution to make your home comfortable and authentically tailored to your lifestyle. I understand your needs!

I work with the talented team of CPI Interiors, a well-established interior design company in Ottawa, where we prioritize exceptional design, quality, and a seamless customer experience.

My approach to design is highly personal. I’ll come to you, ask numerous questions, discuss timelines and budgets, and once we’re on the same page, magic happens!

My mission is to help you create an inviting, functional space that truly represents who you are.

I have got a knack for complete home makeovers, large renovations, including basements and complete home renovations, and kitchen design. Kitchen design has a special place in my heart and is something that I truly enjoy.

A bit about myself: I’m a first-generation Canadian who immigrated from Kazakhstan with my parents in 2006. My first career was in IT as a backend developer, where I wrote, tested, and improved code for web applications, cultivating a keen attention to detail. This prior experience ultimately led me to discover my true passion, interior design.

Experiencing the surge in the GTA real estate market, my family moved 15 times in 12 years. Each move was an exciting adventure as we transformed our new homes to reflect our unique style, sparking my love for interior design.

The purchase of a new construction home in the GTA was the final catalyst. I was meticulous in selecting finishes to ensure our home reflected our style and personality, becoming a place of pride and enjoyment for our family.

As my passion for interior design blossomed, I decided to return to school to gain certifications as an interior decorator and home stager. Over the years, I’ve provided design advice to friends and family. When we relocated to Ottawa at the end of 2018, I joined CPI Interiors. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of helping numerous clients transform their homes through renovations and decorating.

I initiate each project by scheduling a phone call to get to know you better, explain our process, and arrange an initial in-home consultation. Feel free to book a phone call to discuss your project.
