Interior architectural detailing. 

I was approached by a return client to design a new home in Lawrence Park. This would be the 5th project working together and it had to be The Best! I quickly began reviewing the existing space and suggesting any new layouts before drywall was complete. The client expressed that an abundance of texture & pattern was the top priority along with elegant details and a seamless flow between the spaces.  The overall look was soon established and the creative journey was set in motion.  

The home is now ready for everything else including furnishings, colour & for the wonderful family to begin making memories in their new beautiful home. 

A newly renovated heritage home designed for a beautiful young family.

As soon as I met my lovely client, I knew right away this would be a fun and colourful project. I wanted to capture the heritage of the home architecturally and ensure a seamless transition from the exterior to interior. A careful selection of mouldings, ceiling treatments, finishes, hardware and paint colours helped to set the architectural character of the home, and we then had and an opportunity to infuse bright bold colours and various modern and traditional design elements to complete the look.

We worked with a palette of warmer tones to complement the bold blue that we both fell in love with that set the tone for the main living & dining space. Gorgeous teal velvet sofas in the living room brought the space to life, and everything fell into place gracefully. The antique carpets & decorative pillows were the finishing touches for this elegant and practical home.

A new-built home for a young professional family. 

I had the pleasure of working with this wonderful family again, on the interior design of their newly built modern home. The design process was a breeze given my clients’ beautiful taste and appreciation for quality architecture and design. 

Starting in the open concept living/ dining space, we carefully selected interesting textures and colours including my absolute favourite burnt orange mohair for the vintage Finn Juhl dining chairs and deep navy for the high gloss feature wall.  The family room was a no brainer with a patterned carpet and bright pillows, along with my clients’ family photos to add a special personal touch, and a bold wall mural to pull the fun vibrant space together.

An exquisite home designed to stimulate a buyer’s visual senses. 

The floor plans were complete and framing was underway. The home had unique angles and was situated at the end of the cul-de-sac of a new residential community. The design was missing some magic and I was hired and given the creative reigns to redesign and recreate.  A new main level master suite oasis was integrated right away, and walls began to dance and move around. The central living space came to life with antique carpets, unique textures and vibrant colours. The rich walnut kitchen cabinetry coupled with wallpaper paneling in the dining room, and heavy trim and mouldings throughout added the visual spark that was needed.  Luxurious finishes were selected to enhance each space.  My favourite design elements of the home included the various bathroom designs, the natural flow between the spaces and how each room was detailed to shine on its own and work as a complement to each other. I also loved the sliding ladder detail in the kitchen and the glamorous pearl mosaic tiles of the powder room. 

An updated classic interior for a couple who loves to entertain. 

My client renovated their home 8 years ago and didn’t quite achieve the “look” they wanted so we had an opportunity to peel back some layers and really create the home they had originally envisioned. I was thrilled to find a pair of beautiful crystal chandeliers for the open concept living/dining space and I secretly smile to myself each time I pass them when I visit! Luxurious fabrics and wallpapers combined with unique furniture and accessory pieces set the tone for this inviting, elegant home, and complement the elegance of the home owners.

 

A model home for a new residential community. 

The drywall was up and I had the green light to create an inviting and elegant family home. In designing a model home, it is imperative to create a space that potential buyers can envision their families enjoying every day.  I chose a vibrant and playful Persian Heriz carpet to anchor the central space of the home, and developed the colour palette from there. Happy and bright colours, uncluttered spaces and a simple look were a winning combination for this project.

A sophisticated and vibrant space was designed on the main level of a home in the West End.

The main focus was to create an open and airy space that was warm, welcoming and appealing to the majority of potential buyers.

The splashes of colour and texture were just right to create the modern look we were after, and the small accessories and details turned the space into more of a home-y feel than just a staged showroom feel.
