A Modern Space to Entertain in Varsity

Why they came

This Varsity Estates home in Calgary, Alberta had great bones. It meant so much to our client as they purchased it from their grandparent. It showed its age with dark, closed-off rooms, a dated brick fireplace and light fixtures. This young couple liked to cook together and entertain family and friends and needed a modern space.

Utilizing a holistic hygge approach, we tackled their modern space wish list!

Opening up the space brightened their home. It gave them room for warm kitchen gatherings that easily flowed into the family room to entertain family and friends.

This client loved our process so much that we did a renovation for their parents immediately after its completion! We love referrals. Did you know that most of our business comes from referrals? 

We’d love to talk about how we can help you with expert Calgary interior design!
