Vancouver Interior Designer Shares Quick Fix Updates

Vancouver interior designer shares practical ideas to breathe new life into old spaces

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 23, 2016) - Vancouver interior designer Chrissy Cottrell has built up her business through creative design that artfully combines form and function. By fusing new styles with classic options, Chrissy's work yields unique results that capture the essence and individuality of her clients.

"Just as we evolve, so do our tastes. As timeless as design can be, we must be able to reconsider our environments to ensure that we are truly living in harmony with our home," says Chrissy, who goes on to share some of her favourite ways to update a space. To learn more, go to:

You don't have to renovate a room to infuse it with new life. Sometimes it's possible to transform the entire tone of a room by switching out the art, changing a light fixture, or investing in some new décor, such as a lovely accent chair. Reinvention is only necessary when there's a complete disconnection from the space, and the foundational elements are too dated to allow any of the new pieces to truly shine.

After returning from Paris where she found some classic pieces of furniture, Chrissy is eager to put her creativity to good use.

"Curating one-of-a-kind pieces by customizing old classics is a great way to add charm to a space," explains Chrissy. "For example, if you have a fantastic chair, try reupholstering it. It's amazing how one brilliant piece of furniture can transform a space."

According to Chrissy, it's not necessary to look towards ever-changing trends to keep a home modern and beautiful.

"You don't need to saturate your space in this season's pantone hue to maintain a stylish home. Current is a relatively new concept. Instead, I like the idea of putting a contemporary twist on classic pieces. For example, I'm re-designing a gorgeous gilded chair at the moment."

For Chrissy, personal style and expression doesn't come from trends. It's more important to curate a relationship where the designer understands the client preferences when to comes to colour, texture, style, and architecture.

"The key to living beautifully is living authentically," Chrissy stresses. "Live with what you love, even if you don't know what that is yet. A good interior designer will take you by the hand and guide you through a process of discovery. It might take a bit longer, but the results will certainly be worth it."
