CRYSTAL COLLINSON

Principal Designer

Approach... Approachability



After 15 years in the industry, Crystal has developed an approach that sets her apart, while setting her clients at ease.

Her approachability has become hallmark to the success of her business and the projects she takes on. Every step of the way, clients (builders or residential) are encouraged to share their ideas, and are welcomed to ask questions, or raise any concerns.

Crystal believes this kind of open dialogue helps keep design projects on pace, and on budget, resulting in a finished space that meets her clients’ objectives, and exceeds their expectations.
A welcoming space that is functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Crystal is a graduate of the Sheridan College Interior Design program. She worked for seven years in the design field before launching Collinson Interiors, and has been a re-appearing Guest Designer on HGTV’s popular series, Home To Go.

DESIGN

A Positive First Impression is the Only Impression

Sales Centres/Decor Centres

Collinson interiors understands that the sales centre is a potential buyers' first impression of the Builder. With over 30 successful Sales Centres under our belts, we appreciate the importance of an effectively designed and properly appointed sales centre.
We know builders want to impress potential buyers with all the latest colours, trends, and finishes available to them, so they’ll feel energized by the decisions they can make together with their new home builder about their future home.

Model Homes

Builders use model homes as a sales tool to motivate potential buyers. The presentation and staging of a model home isn’t just about arranging furniture and hanging pictures. It’s about creating spaces within the home that captivate buyers and stir their emotions.
At Collinson Interiors, we design and execute model home interiors for Builders who want to persuade future buyers into imagining time spent cooking in their gourmet kitchen, relaxing, or entertaining friends or family in the great room.

A well designed model home will leverage sales and encourage upgrades.

We have successfully completed over 50 model homes for Builders throughout the GTA, and over 30 sales centres and decor centres.

Residential Design & Decorating

Whether it’s your new home you want to personalize, or a room that needs a makeover, Collinson Interiors can work with you and your own ideas to design and decorate a space that reflects your vision, while respecting your budget.
Call us to schedule a complimentary visit, and Crystal will meet with you to discuss your needs. From there, a consultation can be arranged where together you can decide on a plan that works best for you and your project. Your design plan may include:
  • • Colour Consultation (paint, fabric, flooring, furniture)- Warm or cool tones? Trendy or traditional? Do they suit your personality, work with your lighting, or match the mood of the room? Collinson Interiors can answer these questions and more.
  • • Space planning/ Furniture Placement- A critical step in the design process; Create flow
  • • Lighting Plans- Direct or diffused? Warm or cool? Similar to colour, lighting helps set the mood. Energy efficient lighting from reputable suppliers are included in lighting plans provided by Collinson Interiors.
  • • Furniture- On trend or classic? Neutral or patterned? Oversized or condo-sized? Get the direction you need to select functional pieces that fit your space both in size and aesthetic.
  • • Window Coverings- More than just decorative, the right window coverings keep out the light to let you sleep, insulate against the cold or heat to conserve energy, and protect your furniture from harmful UV rays.
  • •Accessorizing- Accessories can be a fun and cost-effective way to infuse personality into a space and put the final touch on your design and decorating project. Let us show you how!

RENOVATIONS
Renovating? We’ve Been There

The decision to renovate can be overwhelming for any homeowner. At Collinson Interiors, we’ve been there: throughout our 15 years in the design-build business, we’ve renovated our own homes as well. Living through drywall dust while still living our lives has given us a unique perspective home owners can relate to, making everything just a little less overwhelming.

Ready and Able

We like to keep busy. With two designers and three separate crews on-hand, we average 12 bathroom and six kitchen renovations per year.

Project Management

We’ll work with you to ensure your renovation, big or small, is handled professionally every step of the way. From our first meeting to our final walk-through, you’ll appreciate our consistent and thorough approach.

Developed Design... Trusted Trades

A well-developed design concept, including ACAD drawings, helps to avoid costly errors and timing setbacks, while our solid working relationships with trusted trades ensures the project progresses according to plan, with the highest standards for quality and workmanship.
All of our work is guaranteed, and we carry $1 million in liability insurance so you can rest easy.

ADDITIONS-NEW BUILDS
Our Triple Threat Approach

Time to expand? Collinson Interiors applies the same methodology that works so well for our Renovation Projects, to all of our Additions and New Builds. Our comprehensive design, skilled project management, and tested and true trades deliver seamless additions and stylish new-builds that will make you feel at home, inside and out.

Project Management

We provide all the services that are essential to get your project off the ground, and keep it running smoothly, including consults, drawings and permits. Every step we’re there, from our first meeting, to the final walk-through.

Referrals are Our Only Advertising

It’s been working.
