Home should be an extension of self
For fourteen years Cynthia Florano has been honing her skills as an interior designer whilst working with prestigious Vancouver multifamily developers and a selection of private residences. The refinement of her design aesthetic, philosophy and credentials have contributed to her status as a respected professional and creative in the industry.
While Cynthia’s personal taste is constantly evolving, her clean designs carry an air of contemporary sophistication and are always combined with an element of the unexpected – A splash of colour, a perplexing pattern, a thoughtful shape. She has the talent to flawlessly integrate potentially opposing aesthetics, creating a welcome juxtaposition. Her frequent global explorations have sharpened her eye and molded her creative muse, stimulating inspiration from the texture of a vibrant fabric swatch, the color of a foreign door, and the pattern of tiles on a mosaic. She trusts her instincts and let’s her gut guide her, resulting in spaces that complement their surroundings.
Leading up to the final concept, Cynthia keeps in mind the importance of producing a space that is relatable, particularly when designing display suites. She maintains a decor that balances between playful and realistic, creating a home buyer will emotionally connect to. Cynthia believes in highlighting a homes full potential without over-selling, a skill she excels in. Throughout her tenure as an interior designer, Cynthia has developed the ability to forecast what the market and most importantly, buyers will respond to and can effectively communicate to the targeted demographics through creative design.
Having worked with renowned developers (such as Polygon and Parklane Homes) across Metro Vancouver, Cynthia’s design experience spans from award-winning wood frame townhomes to sleek and contemporary high-rises to modern single family homes. She has collaborated with a variety of stakeholders within development, construction and marketing teams and can seamlessly communicate across all departments. Not only have her homes appeared in The Province and Vancouver Sun newspapers but they have won awards, including Best Interior Design Display Suite at the Ovation Awards in 2013 and 2014 (while with Parklane Homes). The Ovation Awards are presented by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA), and honour the exceptional achievements of local builders and renovators.
