Current Projects: Mudroom, Powder Room & More
The month of May typically sees a bit of a slow down for new inquiries and that’s ok by me just now as we have plenty of projects on the go. Here’s a round up of what we’ve been working on at CCD!
Project: Small Living & Dining Room Redesign
Our Burlington clients hired us to create a new layout for their main floor living areas & assist with choosing finishes for updating their kitchen; sourcing furniture and paint colours for a well put together interior design palette.
The size of the rooms we were hired to redesign were not overly large. Sometimes the smaller the space, the more challenging it can be to tick all the boxes on our clients wishlists. However, we came up with a couple of great options for them, ’cause that’s what we do! See below.
Furniture options with Moodboard:
Elevations for Custom Cabinetry Built In Design
A great idea that my assistant suggested was to NOT do an area rug in the dining room.
The reason being, because it is such a small space, adding an area rug would draw your eye to the floor and your attention to the bit of hardwood around it. Thus, making the small space feel smaller. No rug = more open look with less clutter.
Wallpapered Powder Room
We are also working on 4 rooms for a wonderful client in Oakville, Ontario. We re-designed their living, dining & family room, and a bedroom. (all due for installs of custom furniture in August) Stay tuned for more on that soon!
They also asked if I could choose a new paint colour for their powder room.
My response, “How about wallpaper?!!”
The ledge behind the toilet couldn’t be wallpapered, so I recommended a custom piece of granite. This granite is ‘Black Pearl’. Not only does it tie in nicely with the wallpaper, it also finishes off that otherwise awkward space beautifully. Accessories & pro photos coming soon!
When clients hire me back to work with them again, it’s one of the biggest compliments I can get! The funny thing is, when I return to a home that we’ve designed, it feels like I’m coming home.
These clients called me back to re-design their laundry/mudroom. We are going to take down all the walls, add custom cabinetry and try to add in an area for folding laundry.
I’m really excited about this project for a few reasons.
1 – I love working with these Campbleville clients
2 – They have great taste! Below is just a couple of their inspirational photos.
This photo below is more to show my clients preference for adding a pop of fun colour!
I’ve also started to get serious about my Instagram, finally! We are thoughtfully curating a gorgeous feed of our projects. Below is how my feed looks..what do you think so far?
We are just getting warmed up! If you like what you see, follow me here.
