We are excited to reveal a beautiful custom home that we completed in the Currie Barracks development. Our team was delighted to work on this project from concept to completion and had the opportunity to guide our clients along through the entire design process. From the onset, we really considered the rigors of family life in all aspects of our design because this young professional couple wanted a home they could grow into. These clients had a fairly traditional style, so we chose to stay away from anything that was too trendy and instead focused on tonal layers of small neutral patterns. We really wanted the space to feel comfortable and inviting yet maintain the sophistication of a classic design. We chose a soft grey palette with the classic touches of white and navy for the living room. A beautiful drapery detail that we will often use is what we call the one third/two thirds (in this case we used a ripplefold header detail as well). When it comes to drapery, you often need a massive amount of yardage and it can add up pretty quickly. This one third/two thirds detail is a nice way to keep within budget without sacrificing style.
To create an eclectic look, we used a variety of mixed metals in our design. Small side tables are a great way to keep a good flow through the space.
We chose to have the home painted in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter, one of our favorite “greige” neutrals.
One of our favourite ways to add pops of color into a neutral space is with live plants. Succulents are also a wonderful low maintenance option for those who don’t have a green thumb. We loved the idea of a chaise sitting in front of these large glass patio doors as it doesn’t block the view out to the patio.
The simplicity of a mitered, picture frame fireplace with marble inset tiles creates a beautiful focal point for the room.
We loved helping this couple complete their first family home and highlight their personality through artwork, accessories, custom furniture, fabrics and drapery.
We look forward to sharing the rest of this project with you!
