Award-winning Toronto Interior Decorator, Sharyn Kastelic finds it gratifying not just to beautify a space, but to change the way it functions for its users. She creates inspirational interiors through careful space planning and by incorporating unique, timeless, quality furnishings. She turns basic into functional and stylish!
Sharyn is an active member of the Canadian Decorators’ Association and has received three CDECA Awards: a Gold award in 2015 for Bathrooms Under $25,000 category; Silver in 2012 for Bathrooms Under $25,000; and Silver in 2009 for the Renovations category.
As a regular guest designer for the Toronto Star “Best Laid Plans” column from 2008-2011, Sharyn honed her space planning skills. These articles were critiques of condo floor plans where she showed ways of best utilizing and decorating the space. (These articles are included in the Media section – check out the before and after floor plans.) As she explains, “I enjoy using a CAD program to really get my head into a space to see the possibilities.”
In 2001, after graduating with Honours from Humber College as a Certified Interior Decorator, Sharyn established her own company, Primed By Design. She has an Honours B.A. from U.of T. and has worked for an architecture/planning firm, and a decorating/design firm.
Her interests include travelling, gardening, reading, and of course, design.
