make home

cynthia zamaria

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a decorator – painting walls on a whim, upcycling furniture, trolling design stores and flea markets for treasures. I’m ready to redo a space almost as soon as it’s done.

My online magazine, Recreational Decorator (design . diy . eye candy) and my home style company, Cynthia Zamaria Design have been born from this unstoppable creative energy and genuine desire to help others make happy, lived-in-and-loved places.

The results are regularly featured in design media such as Good Housekeeping Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Style at Home Magazine, Woman’s Day Magazine, The Globe and Mail and on Samantha Pynn’s HGTV design special, The Mix and HGTV Canada’s Four Houses Canada.

Marry treasured antiques with modern, boutique and big-box furniture and layer on DIY projects, upcycled and salvaged finds for heart and character.
