Talk about making the best out of a bad situation….

When one of our clients experienced a major plumbing leak, she quickly contacted us for help to renovate her flooded bathroom.  We had already helped reno the majority of the home, so we were eager to get our hands on  the master ensuite.

The original space was a bit dated and dark:

SHOWER
Taking design inspiration from a gorgeous herringbone tile, we wanted the new area to be light, clean, elegant, and feminine.

We chose to add mirrors to the vanity doors to create the illusion of a larger space. Mirrored cabinetry add a touch of sparkle, reflect light, and provide a chic way to check out your footwear on your way out the door!

HELLO GORGEOUS! (2)

We installed an elegant clawfoot cast iron tub, complete with nickel-plated fixtures.  What a luxurious way to soak away the troubles of the day!

We chose a bold brass light fixture in the water closet – a dramatic contrast to the dreamy floral wallpaper.

The walk-in closet was in dire need of more storage, so we installed a custom wardrobe and used the same brass hardware and added antiqued mirrors.  Stunning!

To think this beautiful space was borne out of a near disaster!  We love to make lemons into (pink!) lemonade!

This week on the blog, we are revisiting the Aspen Ridge Townhome project and revealing one of our favourite rooms!

Our clients requested a space to practice Yoga but also required a guest bedroom.  As square footage in the townhouse is somewhat limited we had to be EXTREMELY mindful of how space was used.  We knew the area needed to be tranquil, roomy, and uncluttered; yet have the necessary furniture (bed, side tables)  available for the occasional guest.

As seen in the October issue of Western Living and the Fall/Winter issue of Dote Magazine, take a peek at our Aspen Loft Yoga Room:

Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design-Yoga-Room-Image-1We took our cue from all of the beautiful natural light pouring in, and decided to use white painted walls and cabinetry to create a calm, light, and airy space.  We knew our client would be spending a lot of time looking up while practising yoga so we chose to cover the ceiling with a dreamy wallpaper from Trove.

So where will the guests sleep you ask?

Behold:

The custom bookshelves also serve as night stands.  We styled the shelves with framed geodes, petrified wood, and plants to add to the organic asthetic.

The BUZZ

 

Our new office is just about ready!

After months of delays, our new space should be ready for us in two weeks’ time (though the base building may not be ready for occupancy for a few more weeks.)  The new digs will be right next door to our existing office as we couldn’t imagine leaving our wonderful neighbours in Marda Loop!

A few of the other highlights we are excited about:

  • An elevator!  We are thrilled, our clients are thrilled, but mostly our delivery people are thrilled!
  • Our new library has floor to ceiling windows on two sides!
  • A patio to enjoy lunch on in the summer!
  • All of the people watching on 33rd Avenue!

ComingSoon! (2)

We are relishing the opportunity to design a new office space and try out a few new design details and finishes that our team loves.  We will keep you up to date on our progress and when it’s finished, we’ll invite you all over to see the results!
