Lorem Ipsum set Dolore

This turn of the century home was loaded with character but needed an update. We wanted to work with the original oak mouldings so we painted the walls a nice, creamy white to keep the space fresh. The kitchen was an orangey-wood which clashed with the oak. We updated the space and painted the cabinets 2 tones of grey, installed a fresh, reflective glass backsplash. Antique enamel pendants were added to work with the age of the home. The front entrance had an old wood burning fireplace that was unusable. We worked with Mark Kittridge of Benchdog Cabinetry (benchdogottawa.ca) to create a custom oak closet that would serve as both storage and seating. This created a practical entranceway for a young family while keeping with the tradition of the home.
