Great things come in little packages!

Homeowners of a beautiful and small Toronto home needed extra space for a growing family and they loved the neighbourhood they lived in so moving was not something they were interested in.  Plans were drawn up, permits acquired and a team assembled.
First the unfinished basement had to be excavated to increase the height and all utilities relocated into one area in order to maximize the living space. Then we completely finished the basement with a bedroom, full bath, laundry area, family room and lots of storage. High end finishings gives this space a main floor feel. The basement is now a bright, beautiful and very functional space.
We also renovated the main bathroom on the upper level of the house to maximize the space as well as update the look and make it more functional.
I very much enjoyed working with this family. Selecting beautiful and unique finishings has given them the wow they were looking for while also delivering on the function and space they required.
I know they will enjoy their home for years to come.

Mississauga Dream Reno

A Toronto couple recently bought what was to be their dream home in Mississauga.  A house with great bones, on a great piece of land, but was in need of a complete overhaul.  First we created a plan of their dream home which resulting in a major renovation including removal of structural walls, new electrical, insulation, drywall, doors, windows and all new finishings.  There were lots of surprises along the way that we had to provide solutions for.

We used some interesting finishings to make the home unique and their own.  The potential that was seen in this house is now a reality.  The home is beautiful and is everything they wanted and more.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with this lovely family and I hope they enjoy their home for years to come.

Beautiful Oakville Home

Lovely bungaloft gets a fresh look for new homeowner as they downsize.  Everyone has their own style and they bring many items from previous homes that need to be worked into a new home.  Some items work and some just don’t fit when downsizing.   Many people are faced with making decisions on what to take with and what to part with, and it is nice to have a professional’s advice with those decisions.   HDS helped this client determine what to bring and what needed to be sold.  We also added some new furnishings to make their new space the home they wanted.  Paint, lighting, window coverings and decor and the job was complete.  Happy Empty Nesters!

Charm meets Class Christmas

 The Milton Christmas House Tour 2011 was a great success. The Home Decorating Solutions team once again was honoured to be asked to decorate one of the homes on this years tour sponsored by the United Way.

Seasonal decorating is something that is unique to each home and requires an individual design.  This year our theme was Charm meets Class.
Home Decorating Solutions inspiration came from the style of the home as well as the lifestyle of the homeowners. This is an active family home of a professional couple with small children including a newborn who like to entertain. The colour scheme included: shades of silver, grey, platinum, cream, burgundy and bronze.
As you enter the home’s foyer your immediate reaction is wow. From the doorway to the staircase, it is welcoming and beautiful. Fresh florals, greenery, gorgeous ribbon, silver and bronze set the tone for the rest of the home.
As you come to the dining room you will find it set for a dinner party with fresh florals, greenery, silver candlesticks, flickering pillar candles, lots of silver, cream, sparkle and glitter.  As you continue down the hall you are pulled into the great room from the sight of the gorgeous 9 1/2 foot Christmas Tree.
The great room is stunning yet absolutely charming and family oriented. With the introduction of burgundy to the colour scheme, this room has a more traditional feel.  Note our unique Advent Calendar utilizing birch branches to the right of the fireplace.  Each child has 24 personalized organza pouches containing a treat for each day in December.  Mom and Dad get to decide what the healthy ‘treat’ is since it is custom made.
As you turn to your right this open complex kitchen is ready for an adult holiday open house. Fresh florals, greenery, natural branches, glass, silver, candles and sparkle are set among the festive snacks and drinks. Check out our beautiful candle trio with submersible LED lights. These were such a hit at the tour. Simple and elegant.
Home Decorating Solutions would love to create a custom holiday look for you with all the trimmings. Our creative and passionate team will deliver results that will wow you and your guests.
We make first impressions lasting impressions!
Happy Holidays
