Interior: Budget-friendly decorating

This article appeared in June 2009 issue

A show home in South Surrey, B.C., is designed to sell with budget-friendly decorating details.

When her builder husband Rob completed a new subdivision in South Surrey, B.C., Kimberley Wiens of Laurel Ridge Homes set about decorating the 3,300 sq. ft. show home. Her goal: to appeal to as many buyers as possible as cost-effectively as possible. A designer for 16 years, Kimberley knows what sells. She teamed up with Jeannine Foley and Kelley McNamara, owners of design shop Stella Bleu Home, to create a neutral but inviting palette enhanced by decorating details that make a big impact on a budget.

The design team -- Kimberley Wiens of Laurel Ridge Homes in South Surrey, B.C., and Jeannine Foley and Kelley McNamara of Stella Bleu Home, also in South Surrey -- chose armless seating and small-scale accents to make this petite sitting room seem more spacious. As well, mirrored tables reflect lots of light, and the coffered ceiling draws the eye up. Above the sofa is Coastal Horizon by Vancouver-based artist Christine Deckert.
