Coal Harbour

Ever wish you could wave a magic wand and make your home renovation frustrations disappear? This is what faced Izumi, a career-woman, devoted wife and mother. She and her family decided to move back to her 1,500 sqft townhouse inCoalHarbour, after a tenant had just moved out. Izumi wanted several things done: update the kitchen and solarium, repaint the walls and buy new furniture to fill the empty ground floor. After being referred to us by one of our past clients, our design team sat down to find out Izumi’s lifestyle, taste and budget.  Several presentations and about 20 store visits later, we managed to find a selection of furniture from the Czech Republic, France, U.S. and Canada. We ripped out her old carpets, replaced her baseboards, repainted all her walls, re-tiled the kitchen and solarium areas, and installed a new granite countertop over her kitchen cabinets, replaced old track lighting and installed new roman shades to cover her bare windows. The result is a classic and timeless interior that is also sumptuous and elegant at the same time.
