I had way too much fun designing this room for my little boy, and am so happy with the ORC transformation over the last 6 weeks! My starting point for the design was an equestrian feel. I didn’t want it to be over powering, but loved the boyish combination of leather, shiplap and plaid! I also really wanted to personalize the space for him, and incorporate some of his favourite things. (If you haven’t seen the before images yet, you can view them here!) We were working down to the wire on installing the shiplap ceiling, but it was so worth it! I love the texture and character it adds to the space. We ended up going with 8″ MDF planks and installed… Read more »
We are nearing the end of this challenge, and I’m more then excited to see this boys bedroom come together! We’ve received a bunch of shipments over the last couple of days and are just waiting on some final items (fingers crossed they arrive in time!) By the way, I love how the floor turned out!! And the process was so much easier then I thought it would be. With just under a week to go, we have so many final details to complete (and are starting to feel the pressure!) Here’s is our checklist of what we hope to get done over the weekend: 1. Install and paint shiplap ceiling 2. Paint chalkboard wall 3. Paint trim 4. Replace… Read more »
I am beyond excited to be participating as a guest designer in this years fall One Room Challenge! We moved into our new house just over a month ago, and I have a long list of design projects that I would love to check off. For this challenge, I was able to narrow it down to my sons bedroom. The space is really small and has a bit of an awkward layout, however after thinking it through I see so much potential! Below are some of the before images of the space, as well as a design board of my vision! Check in every Thursday to see the progress, and also follow the other design bloggers! … Read more »
I am so excited to finally be able to share my home tour, the Murray project! Being my own home, this project was obviously very near and dear to me. We moved into the 12oo sq ft condo in downtown Hamilton just under 3 years ago. Our unit was situated in a new glass level on an old historic building with a panoramic view of the bay.
I was really excited to work alongside the homeowners on the Waterdown home! When I was hired on, they already had the plans drawn up for the new addition, and such a great vision of what they were looking for. The one homeowner custom designs jewellery, and you can see her love for accessorizing throughout the space! When designing the great room, I really wanted it to be a place the family would love to relax in, and where they would enjoy hosting company. One of my main concerns when working with such a large living space, is that the sitting area can be “too big” making it difficult to carry a conversation with someone across the room. In order to prevent this, I separated the… Read more »
