My name is Marina Pavlova and I am an Ottawa-based full-service interior decorator who specializes in creating functional and authentic homes.

You came to the right place if you ever struggled with a vision on how to make a space work for your family needs and life style. Perhaps you experienced doubts making selections for your home and been wondering if they will work. Or maybe you are a busy individual who would like a full service experience decorating or renovating and avoid endless hours browsing from store to store and the overwhelm of endless choices. I hear you!

My approach to design is very personal. I come to you, ask a lot of questions to learn about your life style and functional needs, discuss timeline and budget, and once we are on the same page magic happens! An added benefit is that I work with a well known Ottawa interior design company CPI Interiors and have a team of experienced professionals/contractors/craftsmen by my side. We focus on exceptional design and customer experience.

I am on the mission to help you make your place inviting and functional and represent who you are. Whether you need to select paint colours, re-decorate your home or renovate kitchen or bathrooms, we can handle projects of various scales.

A bit about myself. I am a first generation Canadian who immigrated from Kazakhstan with my parents. My first career was in IT as a backend developer, which helped me develop great attention to detail and made me realize my true passion, interior design. Exploiting the boom of the crazy GTA real estate market my family moved 15 houses in 12 years. It was a great adventure to transform the next new home and make it yours and that is where my love of interior design stemmed from.

Finally, purchase of a new home from a builder in Toronto in 2014 became the final trigger. I was very particular about choosing finishes and wanted to ensure that our home projected our style, personality, and was a place that we could all be proud of.

As my passion for interior design grew it pushed me to go back to interior design school. Over the years I have helped friends and family with design advice. When we moved to Ottawa at the end of 2018 I joined CPI Interiors. Since then, I have helped many clients transform their homes by renovating and decorating.

If you are looking for someone with a vision and an exceptional eye for design who will listen and help you fall in love with your home again – we might be an excellent fit!
