Interior Design – A Charming Family Home That Mixes Old And New

Interior Design. when we first saw the house I think we felt that it had a lot of potential to be a really great family house I knew right away that I wanted to maximize the natural light we changed all the windows on the back of the house to make them much larger and they also knew that I wanted it to feel very light and airy so we used a lot of white paint.
And I think the white really allowed me to play with different colors and different textures in the house we did go with the bright white floor which helps to open up the space and contributes to this great airy feel that we have on the main floor we did it throughout the kitchen and the living room and the dining room i was particularly thrilled with the design of the open shelving because it looks like a piece that would work very well in a dining room or in a living room it doesn’t screen kitchen so I thought that was perfect for this open plan space and especially as it’s the main thing that you see when you first come into this part of the house I worked with a small Quebec company for the kitchen and they came up with this great design and the kitchen is kind of a hybrid of custom pieces and more affordable cupboards.

And I love to have things out on display that way I can enjoy them every day I do think a home is about a collection of objects that you love and how you put them together and you appreciate and want to not necessarily change everything because they are a reflection of who you are so I did repaint a lot of things to give them a different look or their chairs that I had recovered in different colors are different fabrics I had my wish list and because i’m fortunate enough to work in design have my favorite things that i would love to include those were the sort of foundational elements for a lot of the design that i did for example the wallpaper in the entrance hall that’s something that I’d fallen in love with and wanted to use for a while there were some new paint colors from the ferren ball one that I’ve used on the staircase called malls where that was a color that I absolutely wanted to use and the design that i did on the staircase that was something that I had in my mind for a while and in the bathroom upstairs.

I really wanted this oversized tub because spots are very important to me being British the hardest part of the renovation for me it was probably narrowing down and picking my favorite things that I wanted to use I’m fortunate to have a lot of inherited pieces a lot of antiques and I really want them to be things that are used and enjoy especially with kids I’m not so much like having those off limits zones that some of us had i think when we were growing up I know I did huh I more like let the whole family enjoy every space in the house well we all is a family spend most of our time on the main floor but my daughter loves to go and play in her bedroom and read her book so I think she probably feels very at home and comfortable in her bedroom and she actually picked the wallpaper it took her awhile I had a few different samples that i was showing her and she picked that one it’s never done and it shouldn’t be done I think your home should be a reflection of you and it’s constantly evolving and changing and especially when you have a family as your children grow up they can contribute to the home they have their favorite things I think it’s constantly changing and growing with you and your tastes and your style I do think it’s the house that we will stand for a long time I think we’re very happy here we feel that it has everything that we need and that it has space for all of us to grow up and very happily
