CCSRproject: 2010-13 Textiles for Bench Seat

We are working on the bench seating for the nook to compliment the newly designed kitchen for the 2010-13 project.

The workroom we use is located in Abbotsford and we are very excited to be collaborating again. She is incredibly talented and uploaded a photo of the all the yummy Dwell Studio for Robert Allen fabrics that we sent to her right before she started her work.

Check out her personal blog for an update on her process.

Below is a video about the amazing line that Dwell Studio and Robert Allen created. I am so lucky to be able to work with this beautiful fabric and to create a wonderful little kitchen nook where my clients will be able to enjoy meals with family and friends. Please check back for an UPDATE in a few weeks!


Why, O Why… Pink as an interior theme?

Pink is a wonderful colour… Hey, it’s currently found in my 2 1/2 year old daughter’s room! BUT.. PINK/PEACH/SALMON seems to be what I see in almost every home I enter that needs some design work! These houses are typically between 15-25 years old and are all plagued with pink/peach/salmon paint, wallpaper, carpet, countertops, tile and plumbing fixtures! In our most recent project: an ensuite renovation in west maple ridge, these colours were definitely well used.

Here are some before photos of the room…

Make sure you pop back in a few weeks to see how we dealt with our “pink problem”. Meanwhile – have fun dreaming up ways to deal with any of your un-loved “pink problems”!
