About Christine Da Costa
Christine Da Costa, principle designer of Decor by Christine Interior Decorating & Designer likes to approach a room like a woman’s outfit: Buy great, timeless pieces that have longevity and accessorize with less expensive items! Make this your design motto and you will be successful. “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 — “Decorate as you dress” is her motto!
Christine’s design work has been published in Canadian Home Trends Magazine (Winter 2014 & Summer 2015 issues) and Dabble Magazine. In her experience as an designer, Christine knows how to create beautiful, stylish spaces while maintaining tight budgets, balancing multiple priorities, and building relationships with contractors and clients. Christine loves helping design challenged homeowners create stylish, yet functional spaces that reflect their own style and personality.
Christine is also a design blogger, has been a Brand Ambassador for Urban Barn, a design contributor for Dabble Magazine, has appeared on the national television show Cityline, & CHCH News talking about home decor, and freelanced as a Production Designer on the Property Brothers Show “Buying and Selling” on HGTV & W Network in Canada.
Christine’s background is quite varied…she’s dabbled in theatre and television acting, acquired her fashion merchandising diploma and worked in the fashion industry for a few years before deciding to go back to University and obtaining her Bachelor of Business Commerce and an MBA. After almost 10 years in the marketing field, she decided to pursue her passion of interior decorating and design.
Christine resides in Oakville, Ontario with her husband and 2 little glamour girls.
“I think of decorating as fashion – shoes no longer need to match the belt.”
