A letter from Jim Watson

  A few weeks ago we received a package from the mayor’s office in the mail. To our surprise, inside was a beautiful letter to acknowledge the grand opening of our studio! 

We’re so grateful to have such a community involved mayor in Ottawa. 

Thanks Jim


New Studio – Grand Opening Soiree

View More: http://scotthwilson.pass.us/leclair-decor-grand-opening

After months of renovations, what better way to set a final completion deadline then scheduling a party for friends, family, clients and industry associates to show off our brand new design studio. So, that’s exactly what we did! On Sept 7th we invited everyone to celebrate with us and toast to this new and exciting phase of our business!

We always love collaborating with local like minded businesses so we invited new craft distillery Top Shelf to serve the cocktails, Stray Dog Brew Co. to help with the beer and Tuck Catering served up an insanely beautiful spread that had ALL our guests talking. Our friends at Kavali nightclub helped with all the back end party logistics. We can thank all these people enough for helping us with our grand opening soiree!

It just felt like a bright, happy space right away and we really wanted it to feel like a beautiful home – designed with attention to detail, but still totally cozy and liveable. We’re still sad we can’t move in!

Project Bowery – F4 

IMG_5579Out with frat boy furniture and in with a sophisticated stylish apartment for this young millennial. This condo was designed for a young creative – someone who’s working hard and needs a space to decompress post all-day hustle. We kept things light and bright in the main living space but opted for masculine, moody drama in the bedroom and den. Texture and pattern do all the talking in here.  Continue reading

Project Bowery – O6


IMG_5331We imagined this compact condo as an inspiring home base for a modern girl on the go – equal parts cozy retreat and inspiring workspace. We mixed lighthearted youthful colours and patterns with sophisticated shapes and furniture pieces to create a vibe that’s girly without feeling little girly. A crisp white desk does double duty as a work station and TV unit, and a bold floral mural in the bedroom serves as the statement piece. It’s true urban living with feminine softness sprinkled in.
