This 1920's NDG house still had its original kitchen so when my clients purchased the home, they knew they needed things to change for it to work for their family. We relocated the small laundry room that was adjacent to the galley kitchen and removed the wall dividing the kitchen and the dining room. With a much bigger space, we were able to include an island which was at the top of my clients' wishlist. We also took the opportunity to replace the window for a much larger one, which allows natural light to flood into the kitchen and travel into the dining and living area. My clients wanted lots of open storage spaces to have most items easily accessible for relaxed entertaining and cooking.

NDG FAMILY BATHROOM
It's always important for me to design a space to its full potential, using every square foot in the best way possible, especially in highly functional rooms such as bathrooms. This bathroom is shared by a family of four! They love their home and want to stay there for years and years to follow so they contacted me to adapt the room to their growing needs. Now that their girls are older, it was time to ditch the tub and focus on a walk-in shower and as much storage as possible. I designed a custom wall-mount vanity to fit a compact sink as well as a unit which includes 4 drawers (everyone gets their own!) and shelves hidden behind doors to keep the look simple. This unit also hides a structural element which couldn't be moved. Mirrors inside the upper doors were included for more prep space opposite the sink. The medicine cabinet was also custom designed so it would extend over the toilet and bounce more light around the room, not to mention, again, more storage! SOLL Solutions did an amazing job on the cabinetry, I'm super happy with how it turned out! Heated floors and a long towel warmer are all the heating this room needs. The color scheme was inspired by other pastels used throughout the clients' home and was meant to keep the bathroom nice and bright. It's also very cheerful which I love! It's surprising how small the room is yet it really doesn't feel tight at all.
MONTREAL GUEST BATHROOM
It all started with these old purple heart wood doors my client had been saving for years. The material had to be used in the project. I happily accepted the challenge and designed the bath front in continuation with two drawers below the marble floating vanity to showcase the wood. Clean lines were key in packing all the features we could in this compact bathroom. Huge porcelain slabs, luxurious marble, quality faucets, detailed quartz mouldings, great lighting and home automation make the space that much more special.
POINTE-CLAIRE ADAPTED BEDROOM & ENSUITE
This project started shortly after my client suffered a stroke. The couple quickly needed a new bedroom and ensuite on the main floor so we converted their sunroom into a bedroom and their powder room into a full bathroom with walk in shower. The renovation project is wheelchair accessible and suited to their new needs but is far from a hospital feel which was their main concern. A custom headboard was created to envelope both his hospital bed and her adjacent bed. The space gets lots of natural sunlight so we were able to work with darker colors that really add warmth and cheerfulness for a happy rehabilitation.
