Modern, clean lines and cool grey tones were the backdrop behind highlighting a collection of mid century furniture and walnut woodwork. I wanted to create a calm and refreshing environment for a busy family of four to reside.
The scope of work included cosmetic redesign. The entire first floor, second floor bathroom and kitchen cabinets were repainted. A mid century inspired floral wallpaper was added to their entry as well as in their open dining room to add personality and pattern. Light fixtures and soft furnishing were placed throughout the first floor to coordinate with the home's existing furniture.

Creating a mix of midcentury and scandinavian design. Adding playful pops of color and personality to blend in with their energetic and fun family lifestyle.
With a long list of tasks staying on time and budget was key. The first floor included a gut renovation. The kitchen was completely redesigned and a new mudroom was added on. Along with the first floor renovations, the scope of work included custom built in cabinets beside a fireplace in the living room and cosmetic changes to a powder room and children's bathroom.
