    Did you know that a major renovation is often considered one of life’s most stressful events? Good grief! You wouldn’t think it would be stressful to create the house of your dreams. But in reality, the final phases of renovation can be tough on homeowners. The selection of interior finishes is often the last stage of decision making and yet […]

    “While we’re at it, we might as well….” or “I don’t want to regret not doing it right….” Home improvements often start out small and then blossom into much larger projects. Maybe the dishwasher breaks down but it seems silly to put a new one back in the same place when you’ve always thought it would fit better on the […]

    Does it make sense to renovate to sell? If you are considering selling your older home in the next 5-10 years, you probably have a few questions for a designer. Are you likely to see a return on the money you invest in a renovation? Designer Will Klassen likes to say that every renovation decision is a design decision.  Many […]

    More than my generation, younger people have a greater appreciation for a designed product over mass produced, cookie cutter homes. In comparison to baby boomers that rebelled against their elders, Trudeau, and those that are younger, are interested in honouring tradition and incorporating the best of the past. They appreciate simplicity, quality and good design.

    It’s official! The era of Trudeau 2.0 is underway. While Justin, Sophie and the kids are getting settled into Rideau Cottage, TLC took a few moments to ponder the fate of the new PM’s childhood home at 24 Sussex. There is no doubt that the building is falling apart. The media has reminded us that a 2008 auditor general’s report […]

    The first time I met Will he was kind and warm but not overly effusive or outgoing. While we were nominally having a job interview, it really became more of a philosophical discussion about storytelling and interactions between people. On a couple of occasions, he listened very quietly while I went on and on (hoping I was making sense). When […]

    As you gather with loved ones at your place this weekend, take a moment to think about why you are grateful to be in your home. Is it the way the sun shines through the dining room window at dusk? Or the fact that the hors d’oeuvres never make it to the living room because everyone would rather crowd around […]

    Last week, I met a woman who had just lived through every homeowners worst nightmare- her home was gutted by a fire. This horrible tragedy destroyed all her family’s belongings as well as taking the life of the family dog. As I listened to her story, I was struck by the details, but I was even more impacted by her attitude. The couple, nearing retirement, is viewing this […]
