Colourful Home Makeover

Melissa came to me when she wanted to decorate her entire townhome. She had recently moved to Ottawa and wanted someone to create a cozy space for her to enjoy in her down time.

I was inspired by Melissa’s great personality and her love of colour. By keeping the larger pieces neutral I was able to inject a ton of colour and pattern in the accent pieces. Check out the makeover below!

The great room is seen from the front door and needed to set the tone for the feel of the house.

The fireplace wall and dining room wall were painted in a dark grey blue, grounding the open space.

Cozy Four Season Sunroom

I was approached by Michelle and Eric when they were at the beginning stage of planing their sunroom addition. The purpose of the addition was to create a mudroom, sitting area, dining area and main floor laundry room for their family.

I was inspired by the look and feel of the beautiful renovation they did in their kitchen and dining room. They have great style! It’s comfortable, texture filled and family friendly.

Goals for 2017

I took an extra week off after the holidays for some much needed downtime with my family. I am so grateful for our stay-cation with the boys and the time I had to reflect over the past year. I’ve decided that my word for this year is connection. Life is short and I really want to be present when I’m with people, unplug, listen, and be spontaneous.

Last year really rocked professionally, and I’m so proud of all the awesome projects I worked on with some absolutely fabulous clients. I can’t wait to share some of the before and afters with you folks as the photos start rolling in from the photoshoots!

I’ve itemized a few goals for the coming year to keep me on track. I’d love to hear your goals as well!

Maximized Master Retreat – Before and After

Lisa and I met after she called me in to go over the updates she would like to do in her home. She was very excited to have someone guide her on where to start. Lisa’s current bathrooms were not working for her or her sons, and we determined that these often-used rooms would be the best place to start. I quickly determined her main concerns: taller vanities, easy-to-clean surfaces, restful space, better organization, and a soaker tub.

Art Inspired Small Space – Before and After

Carol contacted because she wanted to get a head start in decorating her new apartment. It wasn’t going to be ready for a year. She was excited to be downsizing, but also a little anxious. Carol really wanted her space to be cozy, personalized and functional and didn’t know where to start.

During our consultation I discovered that she is a fantastic artist, and I was inspired by all the colours and textures in her original art and photography.

As you can see from the before picture of the model unit of her apartment, we had a clean slate to work with. My goal was to give a neutral, yet texture-filled backdrop for a gallery wall of all of her favourite pieces. I also wanted to maximize every inch in her space by using some clever storage solutions.

This is the model unit of the apartment that Carol was moving into.

 

After doing a floor plan, I determined what pieces were needed to create a cozy conversation area that also served as a place for knitting and television viewing.

Luxurious Bedroom Retreat – Before and After

I’m so excited to share this beautiful transformation with you! My clients really wanted a luxurious bedroom retreat in their lovely home.

Their bedroom was functional, however it wasn’t the retreat they wanted.

 

After - Master Bedroom Retreat - Ottawa Decorator Natalie Cox

A big transformation was achieved even though we kept the existing bed and nightstands. The wall colour is Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue, which is a beautiful blue green. To give the room a more traditional feel, we added picture rail moulding to the drywall and painted it out in the trim colour.
