Fireplace Redesign &
Main Floor Transformation
Our clients brought us in to help them transform their dated fireplace wall.
The built in units flanking the fireplace were not built as well as they should be and overall they wanted to capture an element of great design.
We began with rebuilding the built ins with new shelves and beautiful custom drawers, which essentially are much more functional.
The fireplace did need to be replaced with a new insert, which really did transform the old tired insert to a thing of beauty. Notice the beautiful design on the door of the fireplace.
We then sourced this gorgeous marble to clad the face of the fireplace and hearth and we brought this marble up to the bottom shelf of the built in’s to complete this beautiful custom look.
We designed and built this custom mantle -it really is a thing of beauty and ties in so well with the built in’s.
We added new crown moulding in to work more closely with the built in design.
We added modern pot lights and painted the entire main floor these gorgeous tones.
As well, we added these beautiful Hunter Douglas Silhouette drapes in the Family Room and added a custom valance to the kitchen window, along with new custom toss cushions throughout. The window seat cover in the kitchen was re-upholstered as well.
The hardwood floors were re-stained this beautiful rich espresso, which help to ground this entire main floor space.
On the stairs we added a new railing, spindles and custom newel post to the landing.
Our shopping extended to the beautiful selection of both living room and family room furniture. As well as the gorgeous new area rugs that really add texture, warmth and colour to the space. As well, we added a new carpet runner on the staircase.
We go on to showcase the beautiful new ceiling fixtures in the entry and stunning lamps in the family room and living room.
This truly was a transformation and our clients are not only thrilled to enjoy this space, they are proud to show it off as a work of art.
Greely Bathroom Redesign
This project was a lot of fun! You will notice when you compare the before image and the after image, that we did somewhat change the footprint of the bathroom. As lovely as those large corner or platform tubs once were, we are ripping them out of most bathroom remodels today! They take up a ton of real estate!
With the corner tub removed, we were able to add a freestanding tub, a larger custom shower, toilet and larger vanity with ample room to move around! This is a win win!
In the shower, we opted to add a long wall to wall niche, love this effect! Why not maximize on wall space and have added storage. I don’t know about you, but product can be a nightmare in the shower. In this case, we chose to use the floor tile to accent the niche and keep the design consistent in colour and style, but played up the floor to include the pebble tile.
The shower area really opened up with the choice of adding glass doors.
Notice how the shower niche is in line with the niche over the tub. We did this to create a horizontal line along that entire wall to add visual width to the room. It is an optical illusion that works wonders in a small space. We chose to add the adjacent wall colour to accentuate the niche cavity.
The electric fireplace is a great way to utilise the wall space and create a beautiful ambient backdrop, on those cold winter nights soaking in the tub. The mood lighting is both interesting and playful.
Ottawa - Small Bathroom Redesign
In this project, we had our work cut out for us. Our clients live in a small war home in Central Ottawa and so with a small home comes a small bathroom – to say the least.
Some of the challenges to the design, that needed to be implemented were; they have two small children and so seriously needed to add storage! Hmmm, add storage to and super tiny space??
The storage needed to include towel storage since they don’t have a linen closet, along with the everyday toiletry overstock a family generally has.
So, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work on creating this incredible – ‘miracle’ really! Have a look!
