Before & After
When an extension was no longer an option for this young family’s townhouse, they reached out to me to help them redesign their entire main floor and basement! By removing several walls and adding a kitchen nook bench, we created a brighter living space with room for larger pantry cabinets and a peninsula with stools in the kitchen. We avoided any black and instead opted for a soft pallet of whites, creams and blues. Our favorite soft blue herringbone backsplash adds color in the kitchen without overwhelming the white Ikea cabinets.
The master bedroom is the first of many other rooms to design in this beautiful new-build. The black windows helped with our farmhouse and transitional design. We added interest and texture to the walls with a vertical wall molding and kept the style moving with a timeless, cohesive design. We also styled the room in soft, neutral colours to enhance relaxation. The husband helped by constructing the console table and bench we used to make some of the furniture unique to this couple.
BRING ON THE COZY
It was such a joy working on a blank slate! My Yvette Brind' Amour project was a new construction and lacked warmth and character.
The newly transformed entrance invites you into this open concept home.
I provided this loving family of 4 & the cutest dog ever, a living room with built in storage and a stunning fireplace wall in cement look. The dining room sparkles in timeless elegance including a showstopping staircase wall.
I was able to play with different textures, wood tones, metals and colors to breathe life into their home.
