Having a custom house built from scratch can be overwhelming, from selecting the floor to the railings to the kitchen cupboards. These are the decisions my clients were overwhelmed with when they contacted me for help. I assisted my clients with the flooring, room planning , paint colours, back splash right down to the furniture and accessories. I pushed them to make some bold decisions that paid off in the end. I wanted them to feel happy and right at home and extenuate their fun and vivacious personalty by incorporating personal touches. I was able to take some blue prints and turn them into a “home my clients cannot wait to come home too.”
Starting with the entrance I wanted to showcase my clients love for Disney. The custom made bench brings their fun character and personality into the space while retaining sophistication .
My clients already had a dining table and china cabinet. I ordered custom made head master chairs that look like they came with the initial set. I wanted to update the room with playful chairs and whimsical lighting that fit with the sophisticated Disney theme.
Open Concept Kitchen and Family Room
The kitchen and family room area are open concept which is great for entertaining and spending time with your family. I continued the sophisticated Disney theme by incorporating strategically placed trinkets around the room. The walls and kitchen cupboards are very neutral with bold colour choices in fabrics and accessories to showcase the personality of my clients.
My clients inherited a sentimental elephant coffee and end table set that was important to incorporate. To do so, some elephants accessories were scattered strategically throughout the home to set a subtle flowing theme.
Leading to the upstairs is a grand staircase. The dark railing really accentuates the light neutral wall. A fun and colourful over sized painting was incorporated to add some personality into every inch of the home.
My clients love the colour teal but were unsure and hesitant about putting this gorgeous colour in their home. I knew incorporating teal into their master suite would create their own personal haven. I selected a bold paint colour accent wall and lightened the rest of the room with a soft off white with a hint of teal. After some hand holding my clients are happy I pushed them to make a bold decision and are ecstatic with the end result.
Toronto Maple Leaf Inspired Bedroom
Showcasing love for a sport is a fun way to transform a room to reflect your passion. I selected a feature wall done in the leafs blue jersey colour and team spirit was added across the room to tie the theme together.
I wanted this bedroom to stand out with character just as the other bedrooms do. A rustic wood was placed on the wall to create a striking feature wall.
Toronto Maple Leaf Inspired Basement
Having a space to enjoy each others company and entertain was very important to my client. This finished basement includes a pool table , dining area and full functioning bar with a theme that inspires them to root for their team.
An added bonus to this home was this amazing theater room. We kept the Disney theme in this area by adding personal touches to the sliding live edge door and display some of their beautiful Disney posters. I softened this room with a carpet and darkened the walls to create a cozy and functional theater room. This room was quick to become on of my clients favorite spaces to come home and enjoy family movie night.
