Thornhill, Ontario - New Estate Construction & Interior Design
7500sf of a luxury mansion, including coach house, was constructed on the site of an existing home that used to house the coaches for an old estate. We worked closely with the architect, contractors, and landscapers to manage this extensive project. The end result was a magnificent country retreat nestled on a ravine lot backing onto the Don Valley River complete with gym, home theatre, and guest house, a pool, a Japanese garden with pond and waterfall and last but not least, a tennis court by the river.
Lawrence Park, Toronto - RENO
This lovely house needed a bit of updating. The kitchen and all bathrooms were gutted and completely rebuilt with marble, natural stone, and clean contemporary lines. A 4th 3 pc bathroom was added in the basement by creatively restructuring the laundry room, and a new kitchen configuration and modern design have made it a popular selection for commercial location scouts. The pergola was redesigned and modernized to create a complete outdoor living and dining space. It is a great house for entertaining.
La Manga, Spain - RENO
Downsizing from a house to a condo can be a challenge. Mostly new furniture was needed for the space, however, we wanted to blend the old heirlooms and treasures with the new contemporary and modern feel. Much of the work needed to be done long distance [ordering custom wall unit and painting] and then a push to find the right pieces, organize trades, arrange the move and set up the new home in a 2-week timeframe. It’s amazing what can be done when you put your mind to it.
Yorkville, Toronto - RENO
This renovation needed to be completed while the clients were away for the winter. The project was to transform a large traditional kitchen that did not match the rest of the stunning and updated condo. Some appliances were to stay and be incorporated, others needed to be purchased. We needed to remove all the old cabinets and refinish the floors before we could rebuild a beautiful, contemporary, sleek and elegant kitchen in keeping with the stylish sophistication of the homeowners.
Grand Cayman Island, BWI - RENO
A gorgeous vacation home that was seriously damaged by hurricane Ivan sits right on 200ft of white sand beach. With 18ft sliding glass doors opening onto a wide screened-in patio that extends the length of the house, we wanted to maintain the feeling that the inside was an extension of the beach outside. The travertine floors are the same colour as the sand and the white Sunbrella fabric keeps it cool and contemporary yet user-friendly with sunscreen and wet children! The interior was designed to be low maintenance, and above all, comfortable and inviting.
Forest Hill , Toronto - RENO
This very outdated 2-story condo complete with floral wallpaper and pink swag curtains needed a major facelift. The kitchen and laundry room were gutted and completely rebuilt. 2 bathrooms upstairs were demolished to create one luxurious marble master ensuite, and a cedar lined shoe closet custom built to house the owners' extensive shoe collection. Newly wrought iron pickets replaced the wooden ones; a complete entertainment wall was designed to showcase a large art collection and rare books. And the private entrance vestibule was painted in trompe d’oeuille to give the illusion one was walking into the Italian countryside.
