Exciting Summer News August 25, 2015

Water Lilies

It’s hard to believe that the Summer of 2015 is nearing it’s end….Bittersweet, really. It’s been a fabulous summer! Full of cottaging, friends, sunshine, and some really wonderful projects and opportunities, too.

We are almost ready to take photos of our High Park Bathroom renovation. That turned out so beautifully, and I am so excited to share the finished project with everyone!
We are starting our Dunblaine Master Ensuite renovation, and that will be a real stunner as well, with beautiful marble inlay, custom millwork, quartzite countertops, and a whole new layout. Exciting!
This week, we are also staring work on our Munro Double Bathroom renovation. A Master Ensuite AND a Main Bath, that back onto each other….We will definitely be working some magic there! Love it!
And I love being able to work with such fabulous clients. Truly a “labour of love”….
I do think that the absolute most exciting thing however, is my involvement with The Furniture Bank and their upcoming Gala Charity Event on October 30th, The Chair Affair.

I have now also started volunteering at The Furniture Bank, so this is a cause very near and dear to my heart.

The Chair Affair

“Chair Affair is Furniture Bank’s annual auction based gala and fundraiser where we team up with prominent artists and designers to reimagine, redesign and repurpose old chairs for auction.

It is an evening of fun, food and drinks where designers and leaders in the furniture loving and home decor industries join together to raise funds and help our clients find warmth, dignity and stability in their new homes.”

I am so lucky to have been chosen as one of the featured Designers for this year’s Chair Affair Gala.

I am currently hard at work to create something beautiful out of this chair……

Original Chair for Chair Affair

My chair waiting to be found on the floor at the Warehouse of The Furniture Bank.

Well, this mid-century modern chair has fabulous “bones”, and it was love at first sight!!

The Furniture Bank is where clients in need can come to fully furnish their homes at no cost.  It is such a wonderful organization and I am honoured to be a part of their team….

So for now, it is all about selecting the right fabrics and finishes – my favourite thing to do!  I will keep you posted on my progress….

Just you wait and see!!  Anything is possible!!
