Over the weekend we shared some home office tips with the Ottawa Citizen, View the article here!
Seen here is the Richcraft Byron model in Riverside South. For this model we were inspired by the clean lines of the kitchen cabinets and the overall feel of the layout. We decided to go for a mid century theme decor starting with a bold retro pattern mural that our painter executed perfectly! Gold hits, classic chairs and our favorite light fixtures were then brought in to complete the look.
In November 2013 we were contacted by Richcraft, one of Ottawa’s largest developers to inquire if we would be interested in staging their new showcase of single and town homes in the ever expanding Riverside south community. Although the project seemed intimidating at first ( 9 houses in a tight time frame), this was a designers dream and an offer and challenge we joyfully accepted.
Seen here is the largest Richcraft town house model offered, the Fairhaven. We took styling cues and inspiration from the floors, the door panels and the kitchen finishes. We decided to go for a Modern Farmhouse look with playful bird and horse accents with pops of light blue and orange to appeal to retirees and growing families alike.
We’ll be showcasing all the model homes we’ve done over the past 7 months in the next little while so stay tuned!
After a few years, the question we still get asked the most is “Where is your bedroom wallpaper from?” Figured we would do a recent post to help.
If you are located in Ottawa, you can order it through Decorator’s Choice’s 2 locations. 1495a Innes Rd and 2020 Lanthier.
Hope all you readers have been great since our last post! We’ve been working hard on our model home project and can’t wait to show you the finished product soon. If you are in the Ottawa area, we will be hosting a reveal party in May. Stay tuned for the details! In the meantime, here are some recent photos from our favorite inspiration blogs. Happy Decorating!
As some of you may of have heard through our facebook page, we’ve been working hard on a new Model home contract for local builder Richcraft in Riverside south. We are decorating 4 beautiful single homes and 5 townhouses! We’re still a couple weeks away from completing this huge project but here’s a sneak peak of the shots along the way. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram ( @leclairdecor ) for daily updates!
New project alert! We recently finished our latest and first out of town project in NYC. Our friend & client from Ottawa recently moved to the big apple and wanted our help to style her new Hells Kitchen walk up.
After a few months of looking, our client finally found this beautiful apartment merely blocks from Times Square. During our first trip down we were actually the first to get the keys from the broker. We spent the first few days receiving shipments from CB2 and Ikea and scouring the city for accents. We were hoping to get the apartment done in 1 trip but we soon realized that wasn’t going to be realistic. Getting things, receiving things, bringing things up 5 flights of stairs and finding places to park proved to be much more difficult than in Ottawa (duh, obviously) but it was a great learning experience.
For our second trip down we came better prepared and a tad bit more Manhattan savvy. Most of the main furniture was in place by then but we brought down stools, lamps, art and more accents and were able to finish the look we were aiming for.
Due to the client only staying a year in New York and moving back to Canada afterwards, we worked on a very tight budget and kept re-purposing the furniture in mind for the future. In the end, we are ecstatic how this place turned out!
