These lovely clients took a big leap and moved from the hustle and bustle of their Toronto life to the peace and quiet of this beautiful riverside property just outside of Ottawa. The new house was far more modern in its design and architecture, so our clients quickly realized they would need all new furniture and decor to set up shop and make the house a cohesive home. That being said, we needed to balance the modern bones with the clients’ desire for a purposeful shift to coziness & relaxed living. The existing steel fireplace set the colour palette, and then we mixed striking furniture pieces with plenty of texture. The furniture layout lends perfectly to a multi-use space; it offers conversational seating, a tv vantage point, and peaceful river views.
