This former living room was transformed into a busy home office, for my client who works from home. We wanted it pretty, elegant and comfortable. I think we succeeded in all three goals.  A cosy chair and a half is great for clients or my clients’ children, when they stop by for a chat.  A feminine colour scheme of grey, purple, black and white, keeps things modern but still pretty.

ENTRY WAY TRANSFORMATION – FROM BLAH TO FAB

This entry way had great details with it’s wainscotting and mouldings, but was very boring.  We livened it up with a turquoise and white graphic wallpaper on the top third of the wall.  Working with my client’s antique desk, which is used as a console table here, we added in a tiny cube that can be pulled out to remove or put on boots/shoes, then tucked out of the way, in this small space entry.  A distressed octagon shaped mirror is perfect against the wallpaper and lets everyone have one more quick look before heading out the door.  A little tray for catching keys, sunglasses, etc and a few decorative items and this entrance is complete.

Soft turquoise and yellow living room makeover

This living room was just waiting for some colour, more furnishing and custom drapery.  We softened the room with floor length drapes in a beautiful turquoise floral fabric. The sofa actually had its lounge seat removed to allow for an extra chair. A round, clear glass coffee table helps to keep the room feel open and allow for traffic to flow through.  Pretty artwork, throw pillows and accessories finish this colourful space.

This guest bath renovation was pretty quick and easy. All the plumbing was kept in the same place and the tub was kept.  We just retiled the tub area with large scale, slightly etched, glossy tiles in a graphic and modern grid pattern.  We kept things neutral with a medium grey porcelain 12 x 24 floor tile.  An updated vanity, sink, counter, faucet and toilet were all added. The graphic black and white shower curtain and the client’s own snazzy mirror make this a bath any guest would be happy to use.

MASTER BATH RENOVATION – FROM DARK AND DRAB TO BRIGHT AND PRETTY

This bath was dramatically transformed from dark and drab to bright and pretty. The walk in shower was removed and a free standing tub was put in it’s place. It was made bright by using porcelain tile that mimics carrera marble in feel and durability. A soft pearlescent hexagon accent tile was used to reflect light and add a touch of sparkle to the tub area. The vanity was repurposed with a new quartz countertop, sink and faucet.

Guest Room Makeover

This room was transformed from a teenage boy’s bedroom into a serene and soft guest room. The feature wall was stenciled with a modern graphic pattern to add some pop and to highlight the upholstered headboard.  An antique dresser adds interest and it all  makes this small guest room feel simply luxurious.

Landing / Loft Transformation

This little landing was feeling a little cold and my client wanted it to feel cozy and warm just like her inherited treasures.  And now it does! It is also the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea and a magazine.

Master Bathroom Renovation

The objective was to keep all the fixtures in the same location but to change everything out, on a reasonable budget, as they are considering selling the home in the near future.  So with this in mind, we kept the space pretty neutral to appeal to the majority of people.

The entire bathroom was gutted and the lighting bulkhead was removed which lifts the entire space.  The same tile was used throughout with just a small accent tile in the shower area.  The tile was laid in a grid pattern on the floor and in a brick pattern around the tub, to give it a little more interest.

Main Bath Renovation

This main bath renovation kept all the fixtures in the same position but the lighting bulkhead was removed to add some much welcomed height to the bath.  All fixtures, including the tub, sink, toilet, tiles and vanity were replaced.  All this on a very reasonable budget.

Family Room Makeover

This was a quick refreshing makeover for a tired family room. A new custom made comfy down filled sofa, a clean lined coffee table, an industrial style floor lamp and a few accessories spruced it right up.
