A new welcoming

So now that Spring has finally sprung here in Ontario, it’s all about updating and freshening up.  This past week I was helping a client do just that by giving her entry a new feel.

Some fresh graphic wallpaper is the key piece and it will help make a grand statement to all who arrive.  The new dark hardwood floor and dark mirror will ground the space and complement the soft grey walls.  A hint of silvery metal in the pendant, tray, coat rack and hardware will give a little sparkle.  Texture comes in from the paper, baskets, and mens-wear grey inspired fabric on the ottoman. A classic console and an octagon shaped mirror make a great match and the blue vase and flowers are a little finishing touch to pull in the blues in an adjoining room.

I can’t wait to see it completed!



Foyer Transformation

This foyer was fine but a little boring.  It was given some much needed drama by stenciling the walls and painting the doors a gray/black. A stencil was used to add some much needed texture and pattern to this foyer. It now has personality and is a great introduction to the rest of the home.

This home’s entrance was decluttered and the front door was painted and a large rectangular mirror was added to help enlarge the area.
