Once in a while, a client comes along projecting the same energetic vibration as us and just like that, the chemistry is so intense that our hearts beat as one. This client’s sheer gratitude for life’s opportunities, positive outlook, and genuine love for all things were so inspiring we wanted to capture her Spirit in this waterfront condo. The unobstructed views of the Fraser River, driftwoods that sit effortlessly on the banks and the glorious sunshine that floods the space became a natural jumping off point for us.
We renovated the kitchen by changing the existing fronts from a sleek dark modern slab door to a crisp white shaker style. We changed the awkward footprint of the grand open space by building an oversized island drenched in sunshine. We layered in patterns, buttercup yellows with mellow blues on a greige and white base to create a space that is harmonious yet exudes excitement. The fireplace was refaced with a marble herringbone tile and we boldly added wallpaper in the foyer and master bedroom. Our Farmhouse meets Seaside chic supports endless parties to intimate dinners without even breaking a sweat as all the materials selected were designed to be low maintenance for this active family.
Having just purchased a new condo, downsizing from our family house, I approached Huong and Rachel with a general idea of what I was looking for and no idea where to begin. Within minutes I knew I had made the right decision. Rachel created stunning design concepts and as a team with Huong sourced some amazing pieces of furniture and accessories. From suggesting colour palettes through to working daily with the contractor I felt fully supported and confident every step of the way. At times Rachel had to hold my hand as she encouraged me to explore new ideas, but without a doubt I trusted her completely! The project was completed on time and on budget. The end result was beyond my wildest dreams. My family and I wake up each morning surrounded by peace tranquility and beauty. We continually receive compliments on our new home and are quick to credit the outstanding support we received from the gals at Spotted Frog!!!!
