INSPIRING HOME#2

Published on

Could a bed look any more inviting! Don’t you just want to sink into this cloud of perfection!
For this lovely home we designed and had upholstered this floral headboard and bed skirt. We had the euro cushions made for a pop of colour against the cool gray walls and slate gray silk curtains. When we showed our customer a variety of fabrics from Duralee they instantly fell for this bold floral which feels so young and fresh.
Working again with our customer for their dining room in their new house, we designed and built the walnut dining table and painted birch sideboard. Their palette is crisp and fresh with a traditional twist, so we designed pieces with that and longevity in mind. Both pieces are quite different from each other yet complement each other by highlighting their best qualities. The walnut table is lightly stained to bring out the depth and grain of the wood, so rich and yummy! And we chose to paint the sideboard to highlight the different features such as the varying depths and the beaded edging around the doors/drawers. The chairs we upholstered in Kravet fabric and are ordered from our supplier in Ontario, Jamco.
Okay we didn’t have anything to do with these two lovely rooms above and below but we wish we did, they are just gorgeous! Wonderful local designer Nancie Phipps from Theakston Phipps Interiors needs to take all the credit, she did a brilliant job collaborating with her client to pull together these two delightful rooms that are both comfortable yet polished.
Working with our customers in their homes and collaborating with them and sometimes their designers, we really can come together as a whole and create spaces that are fresh and modern but will also stand the test of time. Customizing is not inexpensive, so we put a lot of thought into creating furniture, built-ins and soft furnishings that will be classic yet youthful and won’t tire over time. Each piece we create are built solidly enough and are ensured to be passed down and fought over by future generations.
