Our latest love: the urban ecclectic family home

With our latest design project, A Good Chick To Know had absolute creative freedom… and we took full advantage! We added stairs, removed walls, and injected a full dose of the young family’s personality into the space. As we spent time in the home and really “felt” what the space was longing for, our initial vision altered and grew to suit. We originally planned a white-wash meets pop art theme, but quickly realized that a more family-friendly and personal feel better met the needs of our clients; with a baby and two dogs, our working-professional parents needed a space that showcased their creative interests yet still provided them with optimal efficiency for the space. This home became an eclectic mix that showcased our client’s love for midcentury furniture and vintage pieces – a France & Son’s original sofa and vintage lighting set the stage, and the space was spattered with interesting art: Fred Herzog in the living room, Brent Ray Fraser on the back veranda, Arnie Jacobsen prints in the dining room and Zoe Pawlak downstairs. By taking over the previously separate basement suite, we were able to add in a man-cave inspired area, a home office, a guest bedroom and second kitchen/ bar area for the family. Take a peek through the pics – we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them! Let us know your thoughts, we always love to hear what you think. Photos courtesy of Tracey Ayton Photography (www.traceyaytonphotography.com)

  1. Wow! You guys did such an amazing job! I read this post before and thought of what a good colour scheme it was for your client… not a speck of pink in sight and one of my all time favourite colour pairings 🙂 That is a lucky baby too, and exactly what I would have expected from such talent! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!
