This week on the blog we are revisiting the Rosemont Residence, home to Jill Carlsen from The Upside, which was featured in Avenue Magazine!

We’re back with more from the gorgeous Silverhorn estate showhome designed for our friends at Maillot Homes, and here we are with the *drum roll please*…KITCHEN REVEAL!  People often ask us if this home has four kitchens, and the answer would technically be “yes” but we would answer “no”’. This home has one formal kitchen, […] <a href="http://reenasotropa.ca/the-stunning-silverhorn-kitchen/" class="post-read-more">Read more…</a>

The Monday Blues

In the last few years we’ve been lucky to work with clients that love colour and in particular we’ve had fun experimenting with big, bold doses of dark blue! We often consider deep blue to be a neutral colour and have used it as a base in a number of our projects. We love to watch how paint […] <a href="http://reenasotropa.ca/the-monday-blues/" class="post-read-more">Read more…</a>

The Mudroom Method

Mudroom: A transitional space between the outdoors and inside the home. The mudroom is a high traffic area that takes quite a beating which is why durability is high on the list of importance in the design process. That being said, durable does not equal boring – in fact, it can be quite the opposite. We […] <a href="http://reenasotropa.ca/the-mudroom-method/" class="post-read-more">Read more…</a>

What Goes Into Designing a Showhome?

Winter Highlights

We didn’t think it was appropriate to spill our Winter Highlight blog post until the snow was gone and we think it’s (FINALLY) safe to say that the time has come! Although this winter felt like a neverending loop of the movie Frozen, it was just long enough for us to tackle new projects, new […] <a href="http://reenasotropa.ca/winter-highlights/" class="post-read-more">Read more…</a>

Modern Acreage: Master Suite

This week on the blog we’re exploring the master suite of this gorgeous modern acreage! This young family of five first got in touch with us for help with the interior design of an addition they were building on their existing home. Their existing home was rather traditional in detail with builder grade finishes but […] <a href="http://reenasotropa.ca/modern-acreage-master-suite/" class="post-read-more">Read more…</a>
