MARINE

Boats can be challenging spaces to furnish, but there’s no reason they can’t be both comfortable and chic! I work with experienced local trades people to restore and furnish marine interiors, from “stem to stern” and everything in-between, including counters and cabinetry, soft furnishings, window coverings and custom bed linens.

Workmanship on various styles of manufactured vessels including Voyager Offshore 90; Fleming 65; Garden Long Range 57; Grenfell 45; Bayliner 42 and many more. Templating for custom bed linens, creating unique window covering solutions, complete upholstery retrofitting and new furnishings. Offering services to local boaters and those from across the border. Timing is always key in project management and early planning is essential.

Window Coverings

The right design of window covering style using the right product for controlling light will also transform your space. . .

The right drapery style in the right fabric, with the right hardware, can transform a room: from cold to warm, from dull to sophisticated, from crowded to sleek.

I can help you choose the style and fabric that will best suit your windows and the mood you are trying to create. For example, soft side panels in a velvet or linen to create an elegant effect in a living room, or a simple roman shade for a more relaxed atmosphere in a family room or den.

Drapery can also be used to help insulate or soundproof a room, or to blackout the morning sun.

Blinds are a practical solution in many windows: to block a poor view, close out the blazing sun, or insulate against a cold north wind.

But just because blinds are practical doesn’t mean they can’t be attractive too!

I work with Hunter Douglas the industry-leading supplier who produces many different blind options – including hardwood blinds, honeycomb shades, fabric shades, roller blinds and silhouettes – that will add style to any space. As well custom wood shutter systems from top Canadian Manufacturers.

Drapery hardware has come a long way over the past few years. It is now both extremely functional – no more fighting with a sticky cord – and highly decorative. A European-style track system embedded in a ceiling makes for contemporary look, while a wrought iron rod with a fancy finial adds old-world charm. Finishes range from modern polished nickel, to hand-rubbed bronze and everything in between. You can even have your track system custom-painted to match your wall or fabric colour.

A simple treatment which showcases prints or solids equally and creates a relaxed look when used in a Den or Family Room. Using a silk fabric amps up the treatment to a more elegant finish.

Hi Paula: Truly, it was my pleasure to work with you. You were so much help. I would never have been able to do this redecorating with so little stress. You gave me direction and confidence and I love the result.

Hi Paula: The new drapes are fantastic! we both love them, and I keep popping into the bedroom to have another look at them. the colour is wonderful.

Thank you very much! We also thought your installer was very quick and efficient.
