If you’ve poked around our website lately, you may have seen that we’ve added some new sections and have some great professional pictures. There’s still more to come, but we’re pretty excited about our new Portfolio Section, which showcases the Interiors we’ve done and a Gallery section, which can be flipped through. What we’re most proud of though is the Bespoke section.
Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. We love doing custom designs and creating custom pieces that make life better.
People spend so much of their time inside buildings – the workplace, shopping malls, restaurants, dental offices and of course, home. All these interior spaces must be functional and attractive. And that is exactly what we, as interior designers, do. The idc (interior designers of canada) says that:
‘Interior design is more than just aesthetics. It’s about finding creative design solutions for interior environments while supporting the health, safety and well being of occupants and enhancing their quality of life.’
When we start a project, we ask loads of questions about how the space will be used. It’s our job to come up with solutions that make life easier. A few months ago, we had two clients that, on the surface, seemed similar. They were both empty nesters and wanted to redo their homes. Digging deeper, we found out that one couple entertained all the time and loved to cook. The other couple spent all their time outside in nature, biking and hiking.
Different People = Different Needs.
That’s why we customize every job for the people that live in the space. Over the years we’ve come up with One-of-a-Kind design ideas to make life function easier for our clients. Our new Bespoke section showcases some of the unique ideas we’ve brought to life. Here are a few highlights from the page.
My very favourite bespoke design we did was turning a formal living room into an office. In it, we put a desk. Not just any desk, but a desk with a secret. The office was located next to the dining room (see blog on dining room here) and the family had grown until they could no longer all fit at the dining table. The Desk-with-a-Secret provided them with additional seating.
We partner with the best craftsmen to provide unique One-of-a-Kind pieces that provide function and beauty. Whether it’s custom draperies, bench made cabinetry or Canadian made furniture, our bespoke designs are crafted to function for your lifestyle and tell your story.
