Worked With Our Space And Budget

I wholeheartedly recommend Cathy Bristow at Left of Center Decorating to anyone north of the city looking for a professional decorator. Cathy listened to all my ideas and was able to incorporate them into a plan that worked with our space and budget. She was able to source items from her long list of vendors and show me the differences in price and value.  Her love of decorating is obvious from her confident and enthusiastic manner, which put me at ease as a “first-timer”. 


I thought that choosing custom draperies would be a daunting task but Cathy made the process simple for me, showing me well-chosen fabric samples and looking through hardware catalogues together. Emails were returned promptly and appointments were kept. She personally delivered the fabric to my home as well as the hardware. When the drapes were sewn and hung, she wanted to come by and see the final product, which was quite beautiful and suited the room perfectly. I could not have done this myself.

Saved Me From Making Costly Mistakes

I highly recommend Cathy Bristow for any decorating or renovation projects you may be considering. She has helped me decorate and furnish my work space and my home over the past few years. Her assistance with paint colours and furniture choices has saved me from making costly mistakes, and I have always been thrilled with the finished results.


Cathy’s insight and experience has made decorating projects enjoyable and exciting. She has helped me recreate my living/dining room this year and I look forward to working with her again renovating  my kitchen, in the near future. 


I have referred family and friends to Cathy and they have all been as pleased as I was with her contagious enthusiasm and professional advice.  I would not hesitate to recommend her for any decorating or renovation projects.

The Results Are Breathtaking

What began as a kitchen renovation quickly grew into a complete overhaul of our main floor, including a total rework of the family room and a new powder room.  The results are breathtaking – we couldn’t be happier!


Cathy managed the ever-changing scope of our project seamlessly.  Her creativity, passion for color and uncompromising drive for excellence and attention to every last detail have created an exceptional living space that is beyond anything we could have dreamed of ourselves.

The Process Went Very Smoothly

I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy Bristow, an accomplished decorator and the principal at Left of Center Decorating.  Cathy helped me choose a warm and enduring fabric for my kitchen chairs which she also arranged to have reupholstered.  The process went very smoothly, and before I knew it the chairs were back and professionally tailored.  

Cathy has also helped me select fabrics and paint colours for my living/dining area to make it an inviting retreat and a space in which I’m happy to entertain friends and family.  I would, and indeed have, recommended Cathy’s professional services to friends who have also been delighted with her professionalism, talent, patience and careful attention to detail.
