The client was building a brand new dream home in Ancaster, Ontario, which gave Louise Smith a blank canvas to work her magic. In this job, Louise had the pleasure of designing almost the entire house: the kitchen, four bathrooms, mudroom, laundry room, family room, and servery.
Because the project was being started from scratch, Louise spent a great amount of time feeling out the needs of the client. They had a very particular style that they wanted Louise to maintain, so strong communication was of the essence to deliver a beautiful product. Louise guided the client in their decision-making using her extensive knowledge and experience in the field.
Louise worked with various contractors to design an elegant home where one room flowed into the next. The kitchen was French Country in style with a hard maple interior and dovetail drawers. She also suggested solid maple doors with a white finish and antique glaze to give the kitchen a French Chateau flare. The client requested custom-designed drawers for the counter corners, and Louise was able to follow through with a stunning design. Even the pet dog had a home in the laundry room, with a custom dog kennel built right in below the countertops.
When the house was complete, the clients had the home of their dreams thanks to Louise’s extraordinary touches. Louise remains very close with the client, and has received many referrals because of her exceptional work.
In this home Louise took on the design of the kitchen, along with all vanities, the laundry room and the family room built-in.
Louise loved working with these clients - they knew exactly what they wanted their house to feel like and what design elements they were looking for.
