We recently completed a renovation for our client’s home situated on beautiful lakefront property. While the setting was stunning, the space needed a major makeover. Our clients were looking for a home that was family friendly, sophisticated, and contemporary. We transformed the outdated traditional home to a timeless retreat perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
By adding a second opening into the space to we were able to create better flow for the comings and goings of a busy family. Shaker painted doors contrast with the flat panel walnut millwork, keeping the kitchen from feeling too sleek. Instead of a tile backsplash, the countertop material runs up the wall - we love the quiet drama the quartzite adds.
Hello view! The nook accommodates 10 - a special request by the client who love to entertain their large extended family in the kitchen.
Goodbye stuffy, hello understated glam! By keeping the millwork details simple and classic we avoided the cost of replacing the trim and coffer and integrated the existing details into the new scheme. We also weren’t crazy about the arched window, but by adding a deep valance to conceal the new blinds, it appears squared off and fits better into the new concept.
This room oozes relaxed elegance. It was important to our client that the living spaces felt sophisticated enough for an impromptu dinner party, but cozy enough for evening snuggles.
The structure of the dining room stayed intact but new the wall colour (goodbye to the oppressive dark green!) magically makes the room feel so much bigger.
From anxiety-inducing chaos to a cozy, clutter-free haven. The walnut paneled walls conceal the door and flow seamlessly to the desk with built-in millwork to keep everything hidden away. It’s a quiet retreat to knock out those emails or watch Netlix - whatever the mood suits.
Ahhh, the master bedroom….so serene. And how about that sitting area overlooking the lake? What a perfect place to sip your morning coffee. The same relaxing ambience flows into the en suite. Who wouldn’t want to end the day in a tub with a view like that?
