Stand out and settle in: personalize your space
You’ve finally found the home of your dreams, but interior design-wise, something isn’t quite right. You want your space to feel comfortable, inviting, and inspiring, but you don’t quite know how to improve the energy in your home and preserve your personal aesthetic. After all, you deserve rooms that are an extension of your life and style.
Custom window treatments and soft furnishings like curtains, blinds, and cushions are much the same as the accessories that finish an outfit and take it to the next level. But when it comes to your space, you’re unsure where to start. It’s easy for you to feel overwhelmed when it comes to fabric choices, or stifled by the drab generic options that big-box stores offer—and the least expensive options usually mean you sacrifice quality and durability. You’re tired of suffering in a sad, uninspired, or impersonal living space and you’re ready for an upgrade.
Kootenay Interiors understands that you’re looking for something unique that fits your style. You may already have a vision, and just need the right professional to source, design, and execute from start to finish. Browse our social media channels and check out the online shop, then call or email for a free quote on making your space one-of-a-kind.
Bringing your design ideas to life
I’m Sue Scott, founder and creative director of Kootenay Interiors; I specialize in providing professional consultations and expert advice to discerning owners like you who are looking to put a special stamp on your living, vacation, or business space. Together, we will curate and design beautiful, effortlessly executed custom window treatments and soft furnishings, including curtains, drapes, roman blinds, cushions, and pillows.
I’ve been designing and creating window coverings and soft furnishings for over 30 years. You’ll be delighted with my extensive experience and enthusiasm in choosing styles, colours, and textures to create the perfect look to refine any space—on time, and within budget. I hold an Interior Decoration Diploma, specializing in traditional custom window treatment techniques that refine any room.
My passion for textiles and design, paired with my ability to listen and bring your vision to life, means your bespoke, handmade window treatments and cushions are within reach. Elevate your space and create comfortable, beautiful rooms.
Bespoke décor for charming homes
My pieces convey a variety of different style aesthetics and tastes, bringing a refined je ne sais quoi to any space in your Kootenay home. I consult with you on all aspects of window treatment and soft furnishing design to help you go from frustrated, optionless, and uninspired to supported, comfortable, and ultimately delighted with your fabulously upgraded space.
Designed in your dreams and made in Canada
If you’re an upscale lodge, boutique hotel, or vacation property owner looking for something unique that fits your branding, you already know that an outdated design aesthetic can affect your bottom line. Kootenay Interiors can help you stand out as a tasteful, memorable establishment, right down to the smallest detail. Because not only do you want to entice visitors to book, but you want them to enjoy their stay (and leave a positive review!)
Kootenay Interiors also works with architects and designers looking for unique, well-crafted window treatments and soft furnishings. It can be overwhelming choosing colours, fabrics, and complementing patterns, especially when your expertise lies in other areas.
I know that any investment in your business is a really big decision. With accredited education and over 30 years of design and consulting experience, my streamlined, personalized process will help ensure that all your rooms have a cohesive, on-brand design and feel, so that anyone who walks in is impressed, comfortable, and delighted with the décor.
If curtains, drapes, roman blinds, and cushions aren’t your specialty, I can help you bring life and luxury to your space to satisfy your clientele.
