As a number of you have heard, we completed a very special project this past year near Peggy’s Cove. After finishing this summer home’s kitchen, four bathrooms, main floor built-ins, and stairwell we tackled the clients “Man Cave”. In an outbuilding just steps away from the main house sits this charming dwelling nestled into the granite rocks. Our job was to design and build an office concealing technology as much as possible yet have it fully accessible. Once in place we were to give it the full Henhouse treatment – nothing was to look too new or too polished. No problem we said! Using the blues of the ocean as our inspiration and drawing from the gorgeous stone floors on the main level, we painted and antiqued and distressed for weeks. With us gone now the room will be filled up with comfortable chairs, folk art, gorgeous hooked mats made by our client and all the latest technology all tucked away so they can fully appreciate the bold ocean views out their windows.

Another exciting and dreamy project from the South Shore series! After being asked to create a custom floor in one of the bedrooms, once again we looked to the sea for inspiration. Drawing from previously used paint colours in the home, we designed a pattern based loosely around a compass rose and then went to town on the floor! Layer after layer of distressing, paint and glaze resulted in this breathtaking and unique floor feature, yet another stunning component to this elegant seaside home.


After designing, building and finishing the spectacular South Shore kitchen, we were eager to get to work on more exciting and creative projects in this dazzling home. Besides creating brand new pieces of furniture from scratch we also specialize in finding and refinishing antique pieces. We were more than pleased to share with the home owners our zeal for previously used furniture. This antique baking table from Eastern Europe is one of our favorite finds and ended up being the perfect height for a sofa table! The vanity is also a great example of furniture re-conceptualized for new use. Originally the homeowner’s antique bureau, we breathed new life into the piece by finishing it in our signature ‘henhouse’ red and outfitting it with clean white porcelain features, transforming it into a truly unique and functional bathroom vanity.
