We haven’t had as much time to blog lately as we’d like but we’ve been extremely busy on 3 great projects. We took a trip to Toronto and visited the Design Decor district for the first time this past weekend. We were extremely impressed with ELTE and ended up purchasing a beautiful geometric pattern rug for one of or clients. As per usual we racked up a rather large bill at our current favorite source, WEST ELM with some of their stylish new items. We came back to Ottawa Sunday feeling extremely inspired!
Love the landscaping and outdoor spaces at this Denver home. This interior isn’t too shabby either! View the interior at Freshome
After purchasing his first home our client decided that he needed a new start. Out went the miss-matched college furniture and in we came with a vision for this young professional.
Only 1 piece (his sofa) in the entire condo was kept from his previous apartment, so a lot of our time was devoted to sourcing new furniture and keeping everything on budget. If you scroll down to the bottom before pictures, you can see the past paint job in this place wasn’t exactly up to par. When the client was away on a business trip we decided to paint the entire main area a snazzy light grey which set the mood for the modern revamp. We were very fortunate to find many great furniture pieces locally which minimized waiting times. After looking at the kitchen after the main paint job, we found the cherry wood didn’t match anything else in the place, including the backsplash. With the help of the client’s family we were able to get all the cabinets painted in a beautiful dark grey which we think came out great! When it came to finishing touches we chose a few dark textured wallpapers (bedroom, powder room) to contrast the light paint colors. We still needed something bold in the dining room but we already had 2 wallpapers and a few framed art walls. Looking for inspiration one night, Sacha looked up some new McDonalds interior designs and with that came the idea to paint the thick line mural. With leftover paint we were able to bring huge impact to that area with a $0 budget.
In the end, we are really happy how it all turned out. We learned a lot on this project and the client was amazing to work with!

We spent all morning Saturday at a clients house putting up this beautiful Bocci 14.14 pendant. We and they are thrilled with it! Very impressed with the quality, packaging & professionalism of this Canadian company. Sacha’s trusty uncle and all around talented contractor Rob did the installation for us. He rented 3 stages of scaffolding to do the job and pre-cut a wooden donut that anchored the fixture. Sorry for the phone pics, forgot the Canon!
We are currently designing a guest bedroom and looking for inspiration on dark spaces. We won’t be able to have dark floors or ceilings like this one but absolutely love this look! Sophistication all around but the pop of colour in the chair brings some playfulness to the space.
