The-Gold-Standard_Patio-Chairs_Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design_blog-headerGone are the days of the plain old patio chair. We have selected our ten favorite looks to complete the sophisticated backyard patio.  We love each of these unique chairs and can’t think of a better way to enjoy a cold beverage on a sunny patio.

Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design_The-Inspiration_Martini-Lounge_blog-headerWe think that one of the best reasons to work with a designer is our ability to reinvent a room’s original purpose. Take for instance an under used living room in a house we are currently working on. Our client loves to entertain, but the formality of her living room felt too buttoned up for their casual lifestyle. Instead we envisioned a loungey hotel-chic space with lots of sitting for small groups to mix and mingle. The client wanted to work with the existing cocktail table, chandelier and blue lacquer walls (we loved them all too!). We’re planning on drenching the space in the single slate blue hue for dramatic effect. An extra long tufted banquette along the wall will be an unusual, but functional addition to the room. Here is our concept board showcasing the overall look we are working to achieve for this ultra cool martini lounge. Stay tuned for a sneak peek of this space next week!

The-Reveal_Roxboro-Classic_-Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design-blog-header-(3)We’ve added some gorgeous new photos to our portfolio to share with you! This project was one of many that we tackled after the devastating floods of 2013. After the water subsided, these home owners took the opportunity to update and brighten up the water soaked main floor of their cherished Roxboro home. We got busy redesigning and envisioning a new look for them that was refreshing, classic and appropriate for a busy family. Recently, the kitchen of this home was featured in Western Living Magazine. You can read the article on line by visiting A Calgary Kitchen’s Fresh Start, but we thought it would be fun to show you some other pictures that didn’t make it into the magazine story.

The-Reveal_Roxboro-Classic_-Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design-kitchen-image-oneWe selected grey marble for all the countertops in the kitchen and paired the white cabinets with gleaming nickel pulls.

The hood fan and upper cabinets were salvaged from the old kitchen. They were refinished and modified to suit the new aesthetic.
