Meet Marina





Marina Pavlova
Interior Design Consultant


Marina is originally from Kazakhstan and came to Canada many years ago with her family. Her extensive IT background helped her to develop great attention to detail and helped her to realize where her true interest lied, interior design. Marina‘s love of design stemmed from the purchase of a new home in Toronto years ago. She was very particular about choosing her finishes and wanted to be sure that her home projected her style, personality, and was a place that she was proud to show off. After completing her first project on her own, her passion for interior decorating and design grew and pushed her to complete her interior design courses. Marina then moved to Ottawa to follow her passion. Since her first project, she has helped many clients achieve their vision in their homes, she has completed a number of e-design projects and has completely decorated her new home in Manotick. She appreciates style and function in interiors most of all and stays on top of industry trends. Marina is so excited to be working with CPI Interiors, and cannot wait to help her clients in Ottawa get the look and feel that they want in their home.

Hear what Marina's Clients are Saying:

“We enjoyed the experience of working with Marina to reimagine and renovate our living room. Marina’s holistic concepts and design ideas set us on a strong direction. We appreciated Marina’s ability to listen and to reflect our ideas in the plan. Marina’s bold colour plan made the design particularly interesting and appealing.

The quality of the work produced by the subcontractors that Marina employed was excellent. There was clear communication on scheduling or plan alterations during the construction process.

We were very pleased with the final result. We appreciated Marina’s final touches with complimentary artwork and organization.”

– Bruce Smith and Frances Roberts – Ottawa

“I met Marina at her enjoyable and entertaining event, Creating a Pet Friendly Home, where I picked up many useful ideas that I’ve since used around my home. Marina is highly talented, her ability to interact and get her ideas across is amazing. She is passionate about what she does and wants only the best for her clients. She has an eye for detail, for colour, and for harmonization—a perfect combination in any designer, but when combined with Marina’s personality you receive design services that are exceptional.”

– Jacqueline O’Callaghan – Ottawa


“I recently sold my house and downsized to an apartment. I don’t know what I’d have done without Marina’s help. She is extremely competent, cooperative and always readily available. I had no idea how to furnish my new space. Marina took measurements and pictures and came back with perfect suggestions, incorporating my existing furniture wherever possible. Her input made the whole process stress free. Now that I am settled we are still working happily together with final touches. I have no hesitation in recommending Marina to my friends.”

– Anne Scott – Stittsville

“Knowing from our past efforts of hanging pictures, painting etc. we contacted Marina and arranged a visit to our new home for ideas. 

This first contact went very smoothly as we explained what we wanted to achieve, hanging pictures, hanging two quilts in the dining / living area. From that Marina took over by displaying most of our pictures and choosing the ones that would suit our interior. Then on to where to hang the quilts, what walls, what height, the rods and fixtures?

Suggestions by Marina were next on the list. Paint the fireplace chimney, a rug for the floor in the living area, chandelier in the dining area, mirror and bench in the entrance hall. 

We accepted all of the above advice and suggestions and we are more than satisfied with Marina and the whole interior design experience. We wouldn’t think twice for asking her advice on future projects and we would recommend her to any of our friends and neighbours.”

– Pete and Carol Marshall

“We hired Marina from CPI Interiors to help with the refresh of our main living area and we can’t express how much the end result has exceeded our expectations. Not only do the new colours make us feel like we have a new home, she found an area rug and painting that go perfectly with the new decor. It’s not only the direct service that she provided, but the number of useful suggestions that make you think “Why didn’t I think of that?”. We are excited to bring Marina in again for our next phase of changes!”

– Gord and Tracey – Nepean

“It makes me happy to write a letter of recommendation for Marina Pavlova. Such a lovely lady. I worked with Marina during our move into our new house. I told her what I was looking for. She listened. Shortly thereafter she presented me with different options based on my likes and dislikes and little bit of Marina thrown in for which I was thankful. I will continue to meet with her on an as needed basis. No matter how big, or small Marina’s on top of it.”

– Beth Bright – Manotick
