Chic Storage Reveal

My latest project was a typical storage problem in a downtown Toronto condo. How do you maximize storage while maintaining a sophisticated look?

This condo owner needed additional storage for kitchen items such as large bowls and other pieces less often used.  We decided on this chic sideboard- sleek, contemporary, and perfect for modern condo living.  To add visual interest, I added some decorative pieces in reflective finishes and varying heights, seating, lighting, and wall art.

Balcony Reveal

When I left the house this morning wearing a light jacket and froze for the next 2 hours, I finally came to the realization that it’s officially the end of balcony season, and has been for a few weeks now (my sense of denial when it comes to the end of summer is rather strong).

I spent the end of August and early September finishing up on a balcony project in the FestivalTower condo in Toronto.  This 15' long East facing balcony is complete with a keg fridge, ambient night lighting and plenty of seating with custom upholstery; perfect for entertaining.  While it wasn’t completely ready before the end of this year’s hot summer weather, it’s now 100% finished and ready for an early start next spring!

Here are some shots of the final product:

Alicia Bock Photography

While looking for a skin for my new iphone, I stumbled upon this photographer’s website, Alicia Bock, and I am completely in love with her work.  The colors are absolutely incredible and are inspiring me for some upcoming projects.  The only problem is I can’t decide which one I want!
