Here I share the projects that I am currently working on, or that have been newly released to the wild...or for permit, but saying I released them to the wild is much more fun.

Well-Appointed Home Office

If you are one of the many employees now working from home, you know how your office space can make a huge difference to your productivity.

You need:

  • space to store all of your supplies to keep your desk clean of clutter,
  • a dedicated space (ideally) to keep a distinction between work and home to allow your brain to take a break between office hours,
  • good lighting (a window is a bonus!),
  • comfortable furniture, and
  • reliable internet for all of those online meetings.

The office featured below has wall-to-wall cabinets and shelves to store everything and keep your files, a window for light and fresh air, and is tucked away so you can walk away from work at the end of the work day!

European Inspired Exterior

A slice of Europe right in your neighbourhood! The facade is balanced and has large-format stone to give it timeless charm and elegance. Picture this home in a warm cream colour palette for that extra touch of sophistication!

Give your Home a Facelift

If you’re lucky enough to have the kind of home that has a classic shape, you can do some minor updating to bring it to modern style.

Like this homeowner that wanted to see what their house would look like with black accents, some new windows, and minor roof adjustments:

It’s like a whole new house!

Get Ready in Style

Imagine getting ready in the morning in an ensuite like this:

The ample space allows for unhurried movements, to revel in the luxury of a momentary escape before stepping into the day’s hustle and bustle.

Double Bay Towers

Are you looking for a home that gives you a feeling of living in a castle? This home has symmetrical bay bump-outs that mimic the look of castle turrets! Coupled with a two-storey front porch, this home is fit for royalty!

Sprawling Modern Farmhouse

It’s no secret that I love a house that looks like it belongs on the property, like it’s been there for years, and yet it was newly built.

It’s why I love the new modern farmhouse trend that takes a farmhouse look and updates it to reflect new materials and amenities.

Like this one, for example, that uses a low maintenance exterior rather than real wood siding that would need staining. Even the wood-look elements that you see are fibreglass or metal printed to look like wood!

Open Concept Living

Open concept floor plans work very well in a smaller home as they maximize the sense of space and light within a home, making it feel larger and more inviting. Add the vaulted ceiling in the great room like in this plan, and the space opens up even more!

Fall Colour Porch Panoramas

Imagine sitting on this back deck, looking out at the leaves turning fiery red, glowing yellow, and bright pumpkin orange.

It’s a moment of serenity, where time seems to slow down, and you’re reminded of the simple joys that the changing seasons bring.

Choosing a Front Door Colour

Choosing the right color for your front door is an important decision because it can significantly impact the overall look and curb appeal of your home. Here are some factors to consider when making your choice:

  1. Architectural Style: The architectural style of your home can be a helpful guide in selecting a front door color. For example, a traditional home may look great with classic colors like deep red, navy, or forest green, while a modern or minimalist design might benefit from a more bold or contemporary color choice.
  2. Exterior Color: Consider the existing colors of your home’s exterior, including the siding, trim, and roof. Your front door color should complement or contrast with these colors. A complementary color can create a harmonious and balanced look, while a contrasting color can make your front door stand out as a focal point.
  3. Personal Style: Your personal preferences and the ambiance you want to create should play a significant role in your choice. If you love bright and lively colors, consider a bold shade like bright yellow or turquoise. If you prefer a more understated look, opt for neutral tones such as gray, black, or white.

In the end, the choice of a front door color should reflect your personality, enhance your home’s aesthetic, and create a warm and inviting entrance for your family and guests. Don’t be afraid to be creative, but also consider the factors mentioned above to make the best decision for your specific circumstances.

Double Island Delight

Are you someone that likes to entertain? Have football parties? Host Thanksgiving dinner?

Double islands are going to be your best friend.

Everyone can gather around an island with a full snack buffet spread while the other is in use preparing the main meal!

Or have the kids doing homework without splashing spaghetti sauce onto their binder.

What about a gift wrapping station? Boom- do it on the second island.

The use-case of a second island is endless!
