WHAT WE DO
Sara Khayatian is the lead designer at Next Level Design, Sara is best known for her clever decorating strategies in contemporary and boho aesthetic. She has designed and worked along many happy home builders and home owners for past 14 years in the GTA with projects ranging from small condos to large scale luxury homes.
Sara’s passion for design has always been very clear to her from a young age. She spent her childhood immersed in the arts. Drawing, sketching, painting, and always creating. In addition to that, she grew up watching her father design and build houses and commercial spaces. Watching her father sketch at nights and working on projects, Sara was fascinated by the process of design.
That passion continues today as she is fully immersed in every project she takes on. Either staging one room, or renovating and giving a face lift to an entire home, Sara ensures every project is given the same level of attention and that the output is quality work she can be proud of. Sara founded Next Level Design in 2007 and since then, has developed strong relationships with experts in construction and design that have elevated her work.

Colour is a non-verbal, visual expression of who we are, and it can alter our mood — good and bad. It’s one of the most important elements in creating a mood for your interior space, and is often the most frustrating and overwhelming task for many homeowners.
Relying on a swatch found on Pinterest, your friend’s wall or in a magazine can be a great start but unreliable at best. As many have found out the hard way, paint is highly subjective to a room’s particular lighting, floor coverings, and furnishings and what looks perfect on a small swatch can look extremely different in a whole room.
