Contemporary cottage

The before of this particular project was sad and tired but there was definitely some potential. The worst house on a nice street.

I imagined the house as a cute white cottage with character and charm.. or at least as much character and charm as the budget would allow.

The first step was adding balance to […]

Chateau de Gudanes

These beautiful images are from a new publication, Evoke magazine that a client introduced me to. So dreamy!
Built in the 1700’s the chateau is located in a small village in the south of France nestled amongst the midi-pyrenees.

What a dream it would be to get married here…

Purchased by an Australian couple in 2013, it is currently […]

Farmhouse Modern Renovation Progress

Snapped a few pictures at our final meeting about the finishing details of the kitchen design- Bar stools and backsplash.
We want something simple but with a bit of shine to give the feeling of a nice clean kitchen but without looking too busy.

This is what we started with in the kitchen- yikes!  Heavy and […]

247- 4th St Renovation

This house needed a lot of work, but now is the perfect family home!
We adding cedar shakes and a new large window, garage doors, lighting, landscaping and a new driveway outside.
New drywall, paint, hardwood, kitchen, interior doors, as well we added a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, as well as a large mudroom inside. It’s […]

Still So Much To Do…

I’ve finally hung my Ashley Woodson Bailey print in a temporary frame from Ikea. (I’ll get it professionally framed at some point.)
Still need the Carrara Marble top and these sconces from Black Rooster Decor which have been backordered again!

These sconces are going in the dining room as well.

I am also thinking for in here, […]

The Power of Symmetry Cont…

Symmetry on a smaller scale doesn’t feel quite as intimidating or austere. It is a vital design principle in interior design.
In my own house, it had the potential for a nice space with the two windows, but the squeezed rectangle shape so high on the wall did nothing but make for a useless wall, […]

House Update

It’s starting to feel like Christmas!
 We’ve been busy with finishing details around the house, trim, curtains, tiling, to try and get the house liveable so we can finally move in! Oh and we also got a fresh tree for Chrismas!!  The tree fills a big void in the living helping the space feel more […]

Tiling

This week we started tiling!
My initial inspiration for the bathroom was this design by Kelly Wearstler. I’m really into the hollywood regency look lately!

Well due to my dad’s lack of patience and the fact that the marble tile was a little fragile, we didn’t end up doing the design I initially wanted but we came up […]

Countertops

This week we went to a few warehouses and tile showrooms around the city to try and find a countertop that would work in the kitchen. I went into the first few warehouses with an open mind….

I thought this granite would be interesting with a waterfall countertop, for a potential client maybe, but I don’t think I […]
