A good project always has a starting place in mind and in this case the client did not like the dark, hand scraped flooring. We wanted to eliminate the fact that the sun was showing everything from dirt to scratches; so we upgraded to a rustic cottage look with medium colour textured wide wood planks that would still compliment the dark kitchen cabinets since they were not being replaced. From there I aimed to create unity and flow by connecting the entry way, feature dining wall and fireplace with recurring features of multi coloured slate and stacked stone. Lots of solid wood furniture and iron bronze fixtures/accessories were brought in to suit the rustic style we were going for. We finished off everything by bringing an airy look to the master bedroom with a custom fabric headboard, port hole inspired mirrors and many beach adornments.
Paulette we want to thank you for your help with our renovation, we love it! We are extremely pleased with the results. You listened to our vision and came up with some wonderful ideas and products to make the vision a reality. You worked tirelessly to source the flooring we fell in love with, came up with a great idea for a feature wall in our dining room and you totally changed the feel of the living room with the great fireplace redesign. Your suggestions for the master bedroom made it a very calm serene room that totally suits the lake location. Your design work, ideas and suggestions on furniture options, flooring and paint colors made a dramatic change to our condo. You were always prompt and available for questions and that made it a pleasure to work with you.
The trade person you had do the work on the condo did an excellent job, a true perfectionist. He was prompt, neat and had great attention to detail which we really appreciated. His creativity showed as he laid the hardwood floor and the slate in the entry way and on the fireplace. He had some great suggestions regarding the fireplace mantle and how to handle the TV wiring. He was always available and open to discuss options.
Once the renovation was complete you sourced some great pieces to accessorize and put the finishing touches on our condo. It truly feels like our special place now.
Thank you Paulette it was a pleasure to work with you.
