1. Westmount Ensuite
This century-old stone home in the historic Westmount suburb of Montreal had incredible bones but felt caught between two lifetimes. In the main bedroom ensuite, we used modern lighting, contrasting black accents, and warm oak wood to help the space feel ‘now’, while classic wainscotting and careful styling added visual interest and tied in the home’s traditional charm.
2. Gatineau Modern Ensuite
Our focus of the Gatineau Modern project was designing an at-home oasis in the main bedroom for these busy parents of three. The ensuite complements the bedroom, embracing modern elements while maintaining warmth and simplicity in its design. The light oak vanity and soft grey stone tile bring texture to the space, and we again used black contrast to draw the eye in. Add elevated details like a soaker tub and vessel sinks and you have a formula for complete serenity.
3. Leclair Home Ensuite
This was our chance to design our own morning calm and end-of-the-night escape! We were inspired by bathrooms in some of our favourite hotels to create a serene, yet moody ensuite. The textured artisan tile and custom vanity bring texture and drama, while the double walk-in shower, soft brass accents, and integrated, layered lighting give this space its spa-like feel.
4. Glebe Ensuite
This modern classic home nestled in Ottawa’s busy downtown core is filled with “wow” moments thanks to its impressive scale—including the sizeable principal ensuite. We chose large-scale floor tile and counter-to-ceiling mirrors to lean into the drama while maintaining clean, modern lines. The oversized floating vanity maximizes space and storage, while soft touches of brass paired with classic black accents add warm elegance and finish the look.
5. Los Angeles Bathroom
The goal of this project was a cool, comfortable, high contrast sanctuary in the suburbs of Los Angeles. We chose a crisp black and white palette, warm wood finishes, and statement lighting to blend relaxed, west coast style with our signature Warm Modern aesthetic. The bathroom is a California dream come true with an oversized walk-in shower and large soaker tub. Opting for hardwood flooring was a choice well made for the warmth and texture it brings against the marble used throughout.
