blog-Happy Valentines Day - Powder Room Love Blog Header

With Valentines Day just around the corner we thought this would be the perfect time to reveal an adorable powder room that we completed for one of our clients.  We were working with the existing granite, cabinets, sink and faucet and decided that rose gold would be the perfect way to refresh this room.  Our client fell in LOVE with this fabulous wallpaper from Avignon Studio and we used this as our inspiration for the space. The caviar pendant in rose gold from Arteriors offered the perfect blend of function and beauty for this little jewel box of a powder room. One of the biggest updates was adding beautiful Ann Sacks crackle tile wainscoting to the room. You can’t see it in the picture but we also did a stunning marble chevron inlay on the floor. We hope you love this space as much as we do.CoreaSotropa_FoxResidence_FINAL 013

It’s always fun to look back at projects from the past and this bungalow renovation still holds a special place in our hearts.  Back in 2009, our firm bought an older home in SW Calgary and decided to do our own renovation. Not only were we responsible for the design details, but also took this as an opportunity to handle the project management (general contracting). This project fondly became known as “The Genevieve” around our office and as you can see, the house was in need of some major love.  Here is a look at the kitchen transformation. We hope you enjoy!

One of the biggest changes made to the kitchen was adding an extra window into the dining nook area. The window opened up the space and brightened the entire kitchen.  We painted all the walls on the main floor Benjamin Moore Tapestry Beige.

In an effort to stretch every dollar, we made some savvy design decisions such as keeping the existing footprint of the kitchen.  We also chose an inexpensive subway tile for the kitchen back-splash and inset rows of beautiful marble and glass mosaic tile. This was one of the first projects that we used Ceasar Stone countertops and we still love them.

We were able to negotiate a better price on the appliances because we decided to stick with the same brand for each item (in this case it was Kitchen-Aid). A must have addition to this kitchen was a dishwasher and sacrificing a little storage was definitely worth it. Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design-Genevieve-Bungalow-Renovation-After--Appliances

We still love this home and when we look back there really isn’t much that we would do differently today.

We are excited to introduce another residential project that we recently completed. This project was another opportunity to work with our clients from concept to completion. A neutral palette was chosen with tone on tone contrast and we played with mixed metal accents to add glamour to the design. We loved working on this vibrant family home and wanted to maintain a sense of elegance while also keeping in mind the two resident teenage boys.

This stunning kitchen was decidedly transitional in its look, with all the bells and whistles that one may expect in a modern kitchen.  The millwork design was a more traditional shaker style and we opted to do them in a crisp white with a contrasting dark stained island.

We sourced these great pendants from Hudson Valley Lighting, They were the perfect combination of industrial and glam. The client opted for a simple subway tile backsplash. We added another level of detail by taking the same tile and installing an inset herringbone detail over the cook-top.

The kitchen nook showcases a gorgeous Julian Chichester table with a hammered nickel base and beautiful wood top, surrounded by custom Kravet dining chairs. We love this particular chair with the polished nickel ferrules so much that we actually have them around our meeting table at the office.

We promise, its not deja vu but we once again used the one third/two thirds drapery detail. The difference with this project is that we used a silk look fabric instead of linen. The mid century console was an interesting mix with the more traditional pieces in the living room (stay tuned for that reveal coming soon).
