Dining Rooms

Très Traditional

In speaking with this couple prior to moving into their new home, it was clear that flooring would change from tired old peach broadloom to much richer hardwood flooring. This option provided a more upscale setting for their traditional dining set. A taupe on the walls also softened the room's too-white harshness offering a warm, inviting setting for elegant dinner parties.

"Darlene was a key player in helping us transform our newly purchased house into our dream home. From updating the flooring to choosing the colours, Darlene supported us through each step. She is experienced, professional, resourceful and full of wonderful ideas. One of the things I love most about our new home is how the colours flow from one room to the next. We really enjoyed working with Darlene!"

Lounge Lizard Paradise

This space off the kitchen was too small to accommodate this couple's large dining set. After some renovations, the dining set now took its place in the old living room area, and the dining area became more of a loungy space to enjoy casual dining and after dinner drinks. This was very different from what they had in mind, but very much to their liking.
