It is always a wonderful day when a former client reaches out to enlist the help of your team for a second time. Our clients were thrilled to tell us that they were building a new custom home with Veranda Estate Homes in the Calgary inner-city neighbourhood of Parkdale and we were just as excited to get started on their new space.

Our clients, a family of five with three little girls, love colour and we did our very best to ensure that their dream of a fresh, dynamic space with beautiful patterns and bold colour were brought to life. This entire project hinged on the discovery of one remarkable floral Jan Kath area rug that our clients fell in love with.

While our clients were busy falling in love with their exquisite rug, we were swooning over a Kelly Wearstler fabric for the drapery that coordinated beautifully with the living room. Our client didn’t necessarily want to commit to the pattern as an entire wall of drapes so instead we chose to use it as a leading edge which added just the right amount of texture. 

Building on the colourful palette, we designed a living room starting with a few key pieces from their old home and adding some new custom upholstered pieces. Instead of opting for neutral coloured furniture we went with navy and emerald green sofas to compliment the space.

Before we came on board to help finish off this project, our clients had a Beware the Moon ostrich wallpaper installed in their mud room. We wanted to let the fun pattern of the wallpaper speak for itself. In order to maintain equilibrium we added just the right splash of colour into this quirky space by introducing a pop of orange for the door shade and custom bench cushion.

The palette for the entry way was determined by the graphic fabric chosen for the entry bench. We loved one of the bold green tones in the floral print and sourced a coordinating, over-dyed, entry rug to pull together the look.

This project was the perfect balance of sophistication and charm. We can’t wait to show you the rest of it! Stay tuned as we unveil this stunning home.
