When we met with owners of this beautiful dining room they were planning their downsizing. I was thrilled that Anna and Denis were open experimenting with colour and gave me a blessing to design what I thought will suite the couple best. Transition to a more contemporary style was on the radar. We wanted to incorporate some existing pieces and the dining room chandelier, table and large mirror helped to emphasize the character of the room. As part of a designing phase, decorators listen to what the clients want esthetically and functionally and interpret it through the lens of...

Meeting new people and earning their trust when it comes to decorating, revamping and renovating their homes comes with the responsibility of interpreting their functional needs and esthetic preferences correctly to achieve a stunning end result they will be thrilled about.

It is first a temporary discomfort of trying to find things in unpacked boxes, then finding a place for everything and training the muscle memory and learning where everything is in the...
