Our Successful Collaborations
We feel honored and privileged when our clients invite us into their homes, and share the details of their lifestyle and dreams. Check out the videos below to meet some of our incredible clients and hear their stories.
“One thing that surprised us is I think we had a misconception that interior design was for the super rich. This is one of the reasons we never hired an interior designer before. Turns out, it was affordable, we could fit it into our budget, and they were willing to take on a small job.”
A few things had to remain from the client’s old space – a pottery collection that was always on display and the artwork hanging on the walls. Extra special consideration was given when choosing surfaces, especially flooring, as they needed to stand up to the wear and tear of Toby, the couple’s beloved 9 year old Labradoodle. Improvements in lighting for the space, originally described by our client as being something out of a “Dickens era novel”, was an important aesthetic consideration in the design plan.
“When we look around the home now, it feels very much like we always wanted it to be. All the spaces have been addressed. Comfortable and cohesive. And it’s our style too.”
“The kids had gone and my husband and I had both retired. The whole house had a different purpose and function and we wanted it to be comfortable and appropriate for our new life.”
Key details in this project included best placement of our client’s First Nations artwork, one piece that was particularly large and a much loved Persian rug that the client wanted to keep in the same area. We made bold colour suggestions that may not have been previously considered. The clients request for two comfortable chairs with lighting, for reading by the fireplace, and a dedicated space for this self described “puzzle monster”, made this an incredibly interesting and fun space to work on.
“I love my home now. It works for both of us. The Good Space people really did a wonderful job. And now when I come home, I still love my house but I love the inside of my house and the way it works just as much.”
“When we first saw the Good Space Plan we were really blown away. We were very impressed by the amount of work and effort it obviously took to put it together. They definitely got us.”
The only piece we needed to consider in our interior design plan was a beautiful, light brown colored grand piano that our client had since childhood.Our client’s goal was to walk away from the Good Space process feeling confident to make the right interior design decisions for their space – with colour, fabric and furniture. Based on their answers to our extensive questionnaire and collaboration during our virtual meetings, we successfully designed a plan reflecting their “we love to stay home” lifestyle.
“I think the Good Space plan is unique because it’s like a recipe book that you follow. You’re not going to make any serious mistakes that are going to cost money. You have the confidence to buy what will fit into the room properly. You’re not going to be floundering out there on your own.”
“I love coming home. It feels complete. We feel proud.”
