Transforming Those Awkward Spaces in Your Home

Those awkward spaces in your home that may be an odd shape, are a bit small or are a large open space, can pose some serious challenges when decorating. A situation like this often calls for some professional help! An interior designer has access to a wide variety of products that can be invaluable to your project.

Consider these examples:

The photo above shows a small open space. The clients main focus on this space is to access the balcony overlooking the beautiful bay. They felt that the old look was something that belonged in a living room and wanted more of a sunroom feel. They also needed a space in the house that could accompany their telescope for enjoying the view. This new updated sun-room was completed with shiplap, seating for two, stately art, and bold blue accessories. The driftwood ceiling fan brought in a touch of coastal beach-wood vibes. The vastly widened area left plenty of room for their telescope viewing pleasure.


In this client’s new home she wanted the entryway to be a reflection of her home’s new style. As the awkward space connected to the dining room, living room and family room, she wanted the entry to be a sophisticated and inviting space. She also needed plenty of storage for gloves and hats and a place to sit down to put on shoes. This entry is neutral, rustic and refined. We chose a chest of drawers with a weathered wood carved with quadrefoil pattern. We selected a petite vanity chair which features a stitiched ogee pattern. Finishing the space with an eye catching gold toned mirror offering a modern flair.


Massive Scale:

These alcoves are 8’ wide by 10’ high. We designed moulding to surround these alcoves so the space would be more defined. We decided to keep this space neutral but wanted a wow factor. Long tall room with 10’ arched doors and mirrored image alcoves with consoles, mirrors, and raffia wallpaper printed with tropical leaves. Mica wallcovering on the recessed ceiling with 2 modern light fixtures with glass tubes and bubbles inside. Incredible style!


This was a massive open space that the client’s wanted to be able to enjoy. A designer’s touch came to the rescue! Open living room with blue, white, teal colour scheme. Classy style with comfort in-mind. Floral fabric on rattan chairs and panels, striking area rugs, swivel chairs in white vinyl with leaf print cushions. Lacquer blue demi-lunes chests customized palm art.
