A Stunning Kitchen Makeover !!

As always I am super excited to share one of our recent projects with you and this one is beautiful! Our client wanted to update her kitchen, she is fond of shades of whites which is carried throughout her home.  We wanted to keep the space light and bright but also introduce some soft colour to complement what was existing but also make her new kitchen pop. We used Benjamin Moore's Woodlawn Blue on the upper walls and cloud white on all of the trim and molding which gives it just the right amount of colour but still keeps it soft and airy. We also used this pretty color in accents and the roman shades as well.

We decided to keep the existing layout of the kitchen and reface the cabinet doors. We also had these sprayed out in cloud white to match the trim and molding. We also added new antique brass hardware to pull it all together. We altered the kitchen island by making it all one height (the breakfast bar was originally raised higher and made it feel cluttered and closed in). The space now feels much more open and updated, we added new countertops, farmhouse sink, bridge faucet and white marble arabesque mosaic backsplash which if I do say so myself looks gorgeous!

 As with any space lighting is key and we added new pendant lights over the island, we incorporated the antique brass and soft white look in the new lights which really ties everything together. We also added a new chandlier and under cabinet lighting as well.

I am a big fan of reusing some existing pieces, if possible in my client's homes. It often adds some unique character  but may require some updating to go with their new space. My client happened to have a couple of existing pieces in her kitchen that were perfect for the space but needed to be restyled to fit our new look. So we had them refinished  by Mango Reclaimed! We started with the jam cupboard, I decided to incorporate the warm white but also add an under paint of black to add some depth and to tie it in with their family room. We then had the desk restyled in milk paint in a soft grey on the bottom half which works with the new countertops and roman shades. The top was kept natural and enhanced with dark wax. We added new hardware to both pieces and I think they turned out beautifully! I also had a new calendar made for them (by the talented Melanie from Mango Reclaimed) which is now not only functional but pretty too and her existing canisters were done in chalk paint and all I have to say is wow!

So the last few things we did in this home were in the family room which was already quite lovely but we added some new lighting particularly the gorgeous chandlier which really shows off the cathedral ceiling and some pretty lamps from Penney and Co, new custom throw pillows, and a new mirror from Mango Reclaimed's inventory and what happened next? Well I'll let you be judge.. take a look at the pictures below!

I hope you enjoyed this one as much as I have enjoyed working on it! Let us know what you think of the space and if you are looking to renovate or just spruce up your space give us an email or a call and we'd be happy to book you a consultation!!

Wishing you a very Happy Sunday! xo

Girly Glam!

I am not going to lie, I'm not supposed to have favourites but this is my favorite reveal to date! The minute I met my client Kelly, I was super excited as I knew we could do something really feminine and soft and just like that my wheels started turning. I love taking my visions for a space and bringing them to life and nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients smile and hearing how much they are enjoying their new spaces.

We started out with  a total bachelor pad and turned it into a very sophiscated, girly glam space. Here are a few pics of the space before we started our girly glam reno!

After viewing the space and meeting with Kelly, I was excited to get started. From the moment she told me she wanted a really feminine space, immediately I thought of creams, warm soft greys, hits of gold and silver and pops of coral. We started off  by having the entire house painted in shades of soft grey. We had the kitchen & bathroom cabinents sprayed out in warm light greige tone. Even though they are light and soft, they still have depth. The colour really sets off the new cesarstone countertops & beautiful backsplash. The backsplash is a stunner, we did a long textured subway tile and an accent wall in the most beautiful abalone pearl penny tile! We also added new hardware and pendant lighting, which just pulls it all together! 

In her living room we really went with it -you'll see hits of brass and silver and pops of coral tones. I think it just looks gorgeous, we chose beautiful fabrics for throw pillows which really ties it all together. The drapes really pop  and frame the room. The new cream slip chairs and brass coffee table really add some interest to the space. I love mixing metals together, so don't be afraid to try it in your space as you can see from the pictures below they really look great together. We had Mango Reclaimed restyle her amoire, dining table & dining chairs in our coral, cream and grey palette with Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint and I think you'll agree they look absolutely stunning.

We also updated the powder room and main bathroom as well. The powder room really reflects the color scheme of the main floor, we added  a new sink & faucet, cesarstone countertops and new hardware. Along with a new mirror and accessories I think it is now a super cute space. We also updated the main bathroom which is mainly used by our client's daughter she wanted a soft pink and grey pallet. We used greys, creamy whites and soft pinks in both her bedroom and bathroom. We opted for a marble looking cesarstone countertop and sprayed out the cabinents in warm light colour and added new hardware and a gorgeous new mirror to pull it all together.

To tie it all together, in the hallway we added some vintage frames that were restyled by Mango Reclaimed in a beautiful coral color and metallic gold guilding paste was added to give them some glam and depth. We utilized the clients exsisting table and added a beautiful lamp and some accessories to add some storage and interest in the hallway.

I absolutely adore this space and wouldn't mind living there myself... You don't mind if I move in with you Kelly do you?

I hope you all enjoyed this tour of our latest project as much I enjoyed sharing it with you all. As always I'd love to hear what you think so send us an email or leave a comment below!!

A Beautiful Kitchen and Family Room Makeover

I know I have been promising to share this amazing kitchen and family room reveal since Christmas time, so here it is finally and I think you'll agree it really did turn out beautifully!

We were lucky with this beautiful home as it had great bones already to work with. So we started with painting the walls a warm blue grey colour that would really make the white cabinets pop. We used hits of grey and black in the furniture and accessories as accent colours. Check out the old window frame turned into a clip board for photos, that we had Mango Reclaimed create this for us.  We also stained the butcher block island in warm rich tone to make it stand out against the lovely new countertops.

We added a white beveled edge subway tile and decided to add a marble mosaic herringbone feature wall behind the stove for some interest and drama. I  also added a new custom hood fan that not only looks beautiful but is also very functional as well. The countertops are made by LG and they are absolutely stunning, they have the look of a warm marble but are scratch and stain resistant perfect for a family five! One of the other show stoppers in this kitchen is the bridge faucet-it is simply amazing!

Lighting was also key in this home and we went for it! I fell in love with these lights the instant I saw them... I think they just tie everything together. We added antique brass pendants over the island and a smaller one over the kitchen sink. Over the family dining table we went rustic elegance and this understated chandlier just says it all. In the hallways we went for oversized pendants finished in  a detailed matte black. We also painted out the inside of the front door and the garden door a soft charcoal black.

I also had my client paint out her fireplace and some of her existing furniture with van gogh chalk based paint from Mango Reclaimed in Whitby. I think she did an amazing job and it really pulls the look together. We added custom draperies, new lamps, a rustic mirror over the fireplace and some custom throw pillows to tie it all together!

I hope you enjoyed this reveal as much as I enjoyed working on it and sharing it with you! As always I'd love to hear what you think so feel free to email us or comment on our blog.
