Character, Unleashed

This urban condominium was 3,000 square feet large, and its owner had a personality to match. A retired professional, she had accumulated many beautiful pieces of antique furniture, but in this space, they couldn’t tell her whole story. I blended these with contemporary furniture and art sourced piece by piece from all over North America to create a vivid mosaic that really shows you who she is. That copper bench symbolizes the transformation… such a courageous step for her at the time, today she’ll tell you it’s one of her favourite things.
