Thank you

IMG_6730This small business of mine has grown simply by word of mouth over the past few years. When I first started out, I was a Stay at Home mom with two littles trying to run a small decorating business. In the beginning, my projects were small as I couldn’t take on anything that was going to be time and/or labor extensive.

As the business grew, I met a wonderful contractor, Kevin from Dramatic Change Renovations, that is a dream to work with. He takes my ideas and turns them into reality for the client. Working with him allowed me to commit to bigger projects.

This year has been unbelievable so far, more than I could have hoped for and it’s just February! This morning I checked my email, as I always do before settling in with the kids to home school for the morning. In my inbox was an email from Point2Homes informing me that they listed my company as one of Top 20 interior design companies within Halifax. I am nothing but grateful for this recognition and to be mentioned along side many other designers that I admire and respect.

Head on over to check it out here.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all my clients over the past year for inviting me into your homes and for the opportunity to work with you in decorating your spaces.

I hope you find joy during this holiday season and a moment to reflect and set your intentions for the year ahead. I look forward to working with you in the new year as well as meeting some new faces.

It gives me great pleasure to know that I have, if even in a small way, helped you enjoy your home a little bit more.

All the best,

Our Paint Colors

It’s been nearly three years since we moved in to this house and during that time, I have painted this house from top to bottom. When we bought the house, it was covered in dark brown paint and mustard golds. It had to go!

Our house has great windows and gets a ton of natural light and I wanted to cash in on that so I went with light toned neutrals. I tend to change my mind a lot. Therefore,  I knew to stay away from color . If I did go that route, I knew I would be repainting in six months.

Modern design in Dartmouth Split Entry Home

I had the pleasure of working with a couple in Dartmouth towards the end of summer. What began as a kitchen makeover soon morphed into a complete revamp of their main living area. The couple had already chosen some modern furnishings by Structube, they had painted an accent wall a lovely shade of charcoal and throughout the space there were hits of tangerine and lime. I could see where they wanted to end up on this redesign and I knew I could get them to the finish line.  Continue reading

White Kitchen

 

The kitchen has a great layout and some great bones- granite countertops and marble mosaic backsplash. However, the client was tired of all the brown tones in the space. I wholeheartedly agree!

Paint once again to the rescue. This time we painted the cabinets out Cloud White by Benjamin Moore and once again, we painted the cabinet boxes but, had the doors and drawers fronts professionally sprayed. We also clad the peninsula in headboard to give it some architectural interest and we removed the corbels as they were not functional and only caused many a bruise for those sitting at the peninsula.

The pendants over the peninsula are newly installed and the bar stools were reupholstered. This makeover happened in stages.  Continue reading
