The initial design consultation is the launching pad for every new project. We discuss the scope of your project and we ask you questions to learn about your tastes, your lifestyle and how you intend to use the space. We’ll talk about your ideas, goals, and budget and come up with the best way to start turning your vision into reality.
Walls are the empty canvases of your room, and being the largest surface area in your space, they play a key role in the overall design of your home. Walls can be turned into dramatic focal points, rich textural surfaces, or they can act as neutral backgrounds to highlight your furnishings.
Sourcing, Purchasing & Product Specification
Pulling a design together involves sourcing all of the materials, furniture and accessories that will go into a space, and we take care of it all for you. We find all the right pieces, present you with options, guide you through the decision-making process, and then handle all the logistics of purchasing and delivery.

When your project calls for built-in furniture, we can create unique pieces custom-designed specifically for your home office, mudroom, or media centre.

We will work with you to develop a plan, apply for required permits, hire the appropriate contractor, and make sure the project continues to run smoothly, on time, and on budget. Every project is unique and many issues can arise, but a large part of being a successful designer is being able to approach potential problems with creative and effective solutions.

Space planning involves arranging all of the items in your room so that it works in the way you need it to. Does traffic move easily through the space?

Permit Drawing Preparation & Application Process
By definition a building permit is a document issued by the body responsible for enforcing Ontario’s Building Code in your area. A building permit is necessary when you wish to construct, renovate, demolish or change the use of a building. Essentially the Permit Drawing must contain sufficient information to determine whether the proposed work conforms to all applicable regulations, primarily concerned with life safety. They typically require a site plan, elevations, floor plan, mechanical drawing, as well as plumbing and HVAC notations. Our BCIN certified designers will personally measure the site in its entirety, complete all the required drawings, as well as prepare the permit application documents and submit the application on your behalf. Our service do not stop at permit submission… we will help you through the permit application process, until you have your permit approval in hand.
