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 […]

Submerged

A photography/print series I’m working on. It all started with needing some art for the big blank wall in our bathroom…

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, […]

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 […]

All about Scale

A huge trend I’ve noticed for 2013 and onward is graphic, oversized wall murals.
Black Crowe Studio does this incredibly well! Their murals can be used in both wall and ceiling applications.
Full customization is available in terms of colours to match a paint colour or furniture swatch, as well as size to work with your existing […]

Traditional Luxe e-design

For this client all she needed from me was a new furniture layout, and design scheme for her main living room. She had aleady chosen two chairs in a nice jacobean fabric along with 2 leather sofas. My client was worried it wouldn’t all fit nicely in the space, and wanted to make sure […]

Top Trends of 2014

The trends for this year are very “Parisian Chic”…lots of architectural detailing with white, or black walls, and subtle hints of pastel colour along with luxe metals like copper and ‘gold modern’ or ‘gold vintage’ details.

As I already mentioned in my previous post, pastel colours were one of the top trends of 2013 […]

Midcentury Modern Renovation

I’m working on a Midcentury Modern master bedroom/ensuite renovation. My client has a love for Midcentury design  which is evident in the rest of the house, but the bedroom has been overlooked until now. I am proposing a seamless blend of functions with luxurious materials all in a similar colour palette to the rest […]
