Knock Knock

Were you expecting a joke?! Oh shoot… Ok… I don’t want to let you down right off the bat! So…hmmm…

Who’s there?


Paint who?

Hey, paint you an interior decorator?

Eh? Eh?

Now that we got that out of the way, that ‘knock knock’ was actually me knocking on your front door to introduce myself, step in, take off my shoes, and create beautiful spaces that inject joy into your home!

My name is Sarah Kirkpatrick and I am an interior decorator and stager in Calgary, Alberta. 

I help my clients re-love their homes through my ‘designer for a day’ service, transform their space completely through interior decorating or redesign, or stage their homes so they can sell for more money, faster.


Unshelf Design is a Boutique Interior Decorating and Staging Studio in Calgary, Alberta.

My mission is to inject your home with joy by creating unique spaces personal to you – spaces that showcase your most treasured items as well as beautiful new furniture and decor that breathe new life. I also LOVE a little surprise by way of a unique thrifted/antique find that gives your home soul.

Moving? We can also DE-personalize your home and design/stage it to market to the ideal buyer, guaranteed to have your home sell for more, faster!

We offer 4 main services: Interior Decorating, Occupied Staging, Resale Redesign, & Decor Consignment


Interior Decorator, Home Stager, Marketing Specialist, & Thrifter

As a collector of beautiful pieces, I thrive on incorporating people’s cherished items and new unique decor, no matter how bold, flawlessly into a design – because a house is not a home without soul.

I am an avid traveler and have stayed in well over 200 airbnb’s in the last 10 years, all across the world. This has given me insight into what gets clicked, what gets booked, and what earns those coveted 5 star ratings.

For fun, I flip home decor – scouring every garage sale, thrift shop, and market I drive by to supplement our client-consigned Styled Vignettes and consignment boutique, or add into my staging inventory.

Short Term Rental Design

… Unshelf Design was able to come in and accommodate my short timeline, basically performing a miracle! I had no idea how much work it would be and it was a huge weight off to have a professional come in and give me help and guidance. In the end, they were able to help me declutter and depersonalize with an end result that looked amazing once we finished. My house sold in less than 48 hours and that is thanks to the incredible work done by Unshelf Design…

Sarah was amazing to work with. We were on a tight timeline, and Sarah came through and helped me display my home in a way I never would have imagined. I was able to sell my home within 12 hours after listing!

The ladies at Unshelf Design were AWESOME! I would gladly recommend their services to anyone, in fact I told my realtor about them and suggest he also recommend them. They did such a great job, packing, staging, and helping us make our place look amazing for showing our house when we listed it for sale.

I’m so glad I chose this company and met with Sarah! … Sarah not only worked with my ideas, but made additional suggestions that I never would have thought of! The plans she laid out came way quicker than I expected, and in an electronic and 3D medium that is so easy to use and helped me with my visualization. She’s the right amount of professional and friendly, so I feel comfortable discussing anything with her and I would recommend her to anyone.

… Sarah brought a car-full of decor to fill and design the main rooms, from setting the dining table and bringing fresh flowers, to turning the ‘kids living room’ into an office space – which is a huge selling feature right now. She worked extremely quickly in the short window of time before the virtual tour company got there. My buyers loved the little touches and even said they’d remember some of the design tips for their next home. I loved that the home felt welcoming for potential buyers, my buyers saw how I went above and beyond for them to sell their home, a…

Highly recommend to any realtor…
