Coastal Estate

turn-key furnishing of a family vacation home

A large shingled style estate consisting of a main house and guest wing located on a coastal inlet near Lockeport, Nova Scotia.  We were hired by the home's new owners, who reside full-time overseas, to furnish the empty 5,000 sf main residence and outfit it with all the essentials.  Although the exterior of the home was older, the interior of the main house had been newly renovated with with all new materials but which we were not involved in designing with exception of directing some painting of wood. The guest wing, already in a furnished state, was not part of our scope. Our mandate was to work with all the existing finishes and with the large unconventional layout to create inviting spaces that evoke an elegant but relaxed coastal vibe.  Completing the house in a short matter of time and with a practical budget was a priority in order that the house could be used for upcoming summer and fall seasons.  The work was ultimately phased over the course of 18 months. In addition to furnishings, requirements included acquiring all bedding, bathroom and kitchen essentials to accommodate a full house of 12.  With exception of some made to order accent pillows the entire project was completed with non-custom items mixed with a dose of locally sourced, quality vintage and antique pieces.
