Project Highlight: Builder Grade Condo Turns New Traditional

Imagine moving into one of the top floors of a prestigious downtown building and being able to enjoy your morning coffee with the views of downtown Edmonton. Our clients were able to do just that when we first met with them in 2015 to decorate their home. We updated the living space with custom furniture and decor, painting and refacing the fireplace. Most recently though, we took on the larger project of designing and renovating their kitchen, ensuite and main bathroom, which really changed the entire feeling of the condo.

 

 

While the layout of their current kitchen worked for their needs as a soon-to-be-retired couple, the finishes were not in keeping with their style and made the space feel dark and dated. We worked with our tradesmen to update their kitchen to this beautiful neutral grey with modern tile background. We added in a built-in microwave with easy access for cleaning/repairs, soft close drawers, stunning white granite countertop, and smoked glass pendants. We actually designed this modern chevron backsplash tile by tile which may have left the tile setter slightly grumpy… but we think it was worth it in the end!

The main bathroom layout did not work for them at all. There was very little storage and a massive dated unused bathtub took up most of the space. We re-worked the bathroom to provide lots of space for storage in the floor to ceiling built-in cabinet as well as an extra-large walk-in shower and a private water closet. We also updated some dead space into hidden storage for toilet paper in the water closet.

 

 

We finished the main living and dining space with power controlled blinds to ensure that the sightlines were open to the expansive views available, while still providing privacy when wanted.  Grey silk cloth wallpaper added the extra touch as a backdrop to a fabulous local photographers piece which has become our client’s favourite piece in their home.

 

 

Through it all Brenda coordinated everything!  She arranged for the wonderful contractors, great custom carpenters, painters, artists and the list goes on.  Her attention to all the details and recommendations around design are fantastic. Brenda and her team have been fantastic to work with and we highly recommend them for all things design!!”
