While flipping through design magazines, surfing style blogs and binge watching HGTV, one thing becomes abundantly clear – there are literally thousands of different design aesthetics.  Traditional, cozy, modern, formal, relaxed – the list goes on and on….and on!

This week on the blog, we reveal a living room sure to appeal to those with a very refined sense of style.  Lots of light, clean lines, neutral colour palette, and loads of architectural interest.  Little touches of glamour and colour throughout the room give it a personality unique to the client.

We installed custom built-ins to house all of the AV equipment and showcase personal mementos.  To hide any power cords and a TV screen jutting out into the room, we had the builder create a recess where the screen hangs.  Gorgeous!

The vertical lines created by the leading edge detail drapery accentuate the high ceiling. Pops of pretty lavender and violet throughout the space soften the feel of the room and add a feminine touch.

What really completes this room are the stunning details and accessories.  The mementos we choose to display in our homes tell the story of who we are – our interests, our travels, our families.  And who doesn’t like a little bling!  Little touches of sparkle can be seen throughout –  the throw cushions, the vase, and table lamp all add some glamour to the space.

Sophisticated Classic Title

Remember the days of a formal sitting room?  A room that was ONLY used when company came over?  A room often filled with very formal, very uncomfortable, and very fussy furniture?

Do those types of rooms exist anymore?  If they do, they are few and far between!  The families we work with crave a space where they can relax, read a book, or chat with friends – all without worrying about the kids knocking over the crystal tchotchke that was a gift from Great Aunt Martha.

This week on the blog, we take a look at a stylish and inviting family room.

We started with a gorgeous neutral palette, adding pops of colour throughout the room with a mixture of custom and store bought accents. The grey leather sectional was a kid-friendly choice.   Sophisticated and durable – no need for plastic slip covers!  The chevron rug adds a bold pattern to the room, without being overpowering.

The stunning  twin console lamps have the same mid-century modern feel as the side table.  The lamps also have a dash of the same sunny yellow accent as the pillows.  Should the urge hit to change things up a bit, the “colour” pieces in the room can be easily replaced with another hue.   The chunky sweater knit poufs are yet another pop of colour and provide fun extra seating.

Our clients were hoping to incorporate an existing and much loved reading chair into the family room. Luckily, the colour and style lent itself perfectly to the room and we were able to tie the colour in with the sepia toned art piece over the sectional. We created a cozy corner, perfect for a cup of tea and a good book.  We love it when a plan comes together!

Even in the largest of homes, the kitchen remains a hub of activity.  It is a homework space, an entertaining space, a meeting space, and yes – sometimes even a cooking space!

With so many purposes to serve, clients have functionality at the top of their list when contemplating a kitchen reno.  While practicality is of prime importance, we are happy to report that you don’t have to sacrifice style for function.

Our clients wanted the same aesthetic of the rest of their home carried through to the kitchen.  While “glamorous” is not usually the first word associated with a kitchen space, we were up to the task and are excited to show off the results!

We mentioned this kitchen needed to be functional, right?  The custom millwork pantry door is completely hidden, along with the integrated fridge and dishwasher.  The pantry also provides easy access to the mudroom.  A perfect meeting of form and function!
