The late, legendary fashion designer Yves St. Laurent stated that while “fashions fade, style is eternal.”
Christine Da Costa, principal Designer and owner of Décor by Christine lives and breathes that every day with her motto “Where Style Meets Home!”
Christine likes to approach a room like a woman’s outfit: “Decorate as you dress.” Buy great, timeless pieces that have longevity and accessorize with less expensive items! Make this your design motto and you will be successful.
Christine says “I’ve always loved how Fashion intersects with Interior Decor, and frankly I cannot get enough of both. If you love the clothes in your closet then why shouldn’t that style or colour be reflected in your home? If you’ve got great style…so should your home!”
Christine works very closely with all her suppliers/contractors to ensure quality and that timeliness of service is upheld for all of her clients. She speaks on a regular basis with clients as their interior decorating project is being completed so everyone is aware of what the other is doing.
When you hire a plumber or an accountant, you are hiring them for their expertise in which you are not an expert. The same goes for interior decorating and design; if you are not an expert in decorating your home and are in the middle of deciding on some pricey purchases, why wouldn’t you bring in an expert to ensure you are not making costly mistakes and blowing your entire budget on something you will ultimately dislike or isn’t to scale for your room. An interior designer or decorator will help you figure out if your ideas for a room are correct, and if they’re not, then they will offer you their objective opinion based on what they know will work for your space and why. At the very minimum, you should at least hire an interior decorator for a consultation to guide you in the right direction.
Décor by Christine can help you create your space into stylish, yet functional rooms.
“Think of interior lighting like jewelery on a beautiful outfit.”
