We are an Ottawa-based interior design company specializing in custom commercial and residential designs.
We design quality environments such as restaurants, condo lobbies, model homes, design centres, kitchens, and bathrooms, including high end luxurious new builds and more. From living room ideas to bedroom design, we offer a wide array of services.
From commercial scale design projects to furnishings and finish selections West of Main will guide you in creating the space you love.
Going out to a restaurant isn’t solely about good food and good service. Of course, this is important, but it’s also the ambiance, atmosphere, and social experience that keeps guests returning. Many design elements come into play and considerably influence your overall dining experience.
“It was important to us to give back and to create an environment that is enriching to both customers and staff. It’s cliché, but that’s what really sets us apart. We wanted to create a culture of care. That’s exactly what I see every time I’m in one of our restaurants.” -Stephanie Howarth
When he isn't kayaking Ottawa's white waters or making the team gin & tonics on Fridays, Justin is hard at work behind the scenes at West of Main. Justin is a pillar of the interior design company, he sets the bar high for his staff, and is a team motivator (aka he keeps us in line).
“I design for people and believe that the foundation of great design is successful communication and involvement with the client. I believe spaces that foster either intimate conversation or the sense of belonging to a bigger experience are the most magical and memorable spaces.”
Who ever said interior design had to stay indoors? We are so excited the sun is finally out and summer entertaining season is officially open! We want to take our home decor ideas outside and help you create a luxurious and inviting outdoor space to share with friends and family.
At West of Main, we take pride in our interior design knowledge and expertise. We like to educate ourselves about what’s new and trending. Last Tuesday afternoon we were fortunate enough to participate in Euro Tile & Stone’s Large Format Thin Slab training.
Sascha and team at West of Main met and then exceed our expectations when working on a complex and time sensitive build for a new Commercial space. Sascha was able to successfully convey our intended feel for a luxurious, yet comfortable and highly functional space. She has a remarkable ability to fully understand a customer's intended emotion for the space while using today's trending materials to create that special environment. Peter Weiss, General Manager, Urbandale Construction.
I met Sascha of West of Main on one of her projects that required a major structural
revision to open up a kitchen/dining/living room area.
Sascha had a detailed plan of her concept for the final interior appearance.
We were able to follow her plan to a successful conclusion.
The client's were ecstatic with the results.
Through her efforts and skills she has received additional referrals for her business.
We are happy to assist Sascha in her future projects, should she require our services.
Design jobs can be extremely stressful but Sascha made me feel completely comfortable with the process. She was so knowledgable and was always available to me for any questions I had. The finished product is amazing. She truly helped turn my dream into a reality and I couldn't have asked for more.
After much research, we hired West of Main to provide their expertise with our home selections (structural, exterior and finishes) prior to building and continued with their interior design services.
Having Sascha from West of Main attend our meetings throughout the building process helped us make educated decisions on our home layout and finishes. Sascha asked important questions during our meetings that would have been overseen which would had left us with issues upon moving in. She also had creative ideas to make our house not seem so "cookie-cutter" while buying from a large builder and she was able to add a designer flare. Her attention to detail and experience helped us create our dream home flawlessly and made the building experience so much more enjoyable! We left each meeting confident that we were making educated decisions and her creative ideas excited us. Sascha is also respectful of her clients budgets - she knows exactly where to spend and where to save to get the most value out of your home. We enjoyed her so much throughout the building phase we decided to continue with her services to furnish our house as well! Needless to say, we highly recommend West of Main!
Working with Sascha was an absolute pleasure. My wife and I had never used a designer before so we were not sure what to expect and we were blown away by Sascha's creativity, design concepts, project management and responsiveness. We cannot say enough how happy we are with how our renovations turned out - Sascha brought forward ideas, colors, and tiles, that we would have never even thought of but look simply amazing. Our biggest lesson learned was to trust our designer.
Sascha was on top of everything throughout our six month reno - we could count on her to manage every detail. We highly recommend Sascha for anyone consider a designer and would be happy to talk to any prospective clients.
Sascha did our kitchen and it turned out even better than we could've imagined. She was always available and on time with everything. Couldn't have asked for anything more. 10/10.
