Contemporary meets kid friendly

Great room AFTER
A young professional couple with small children wanted their home to reflect their contemporary style, with a touch of the eclectic to showcase their worldly travels.

Great room BEFORE
Consultation began at the planning stage of a builder’s model, so customizations to the layout were possible. Few finishes and upgrades were purchased through the home builder as they did not offer the quality or variety of finishes and products that were needed to fulfill the look desired

Keeping in mind all-around durability, safety and practicality for their young children, as well as the continual entertaining the family does, many custom pieces were designed for the 3200 sq.ft. home.


Adding energy and fun into the children’s rooms was easily done through paint and creative colour combinations. Creating a room for children to grow up with instead of theme-type spaces is the key to good design – and of course, it’s all in the details.


...And there's more!

I'm in the midst of putting the finishing touches on their basement renovation. It includes another feature fireplace, a workout area, children's playroom, guest bedroom, full bathroom and more! Watch out for more pictures in the coming weeks.
