Project Spotlight: South Surrey Condo

It's not everyday you get to paint an orange accent wall and get away with it.

To my great fortune, I had the opportunity to work with amazing clients, newly retired B & G. They handed me a blank canvas, their newly built condo in a gargantuan complex, with only two table lamps to their name. They were jumping into a new chapter in their lives, downsizing from family life and starting fresh with new furniture and a new outlook.

When you find clients who put their complete trust in you, you tend to keep them close to your heart. B & G were always light-hearted, good humored, and totally put up with all my crazy ideas during the entire pre-planning process. After working closely in the four months leading up to their move-in date, they chose a fun, fresh design plan without hesitation. For a look behind the scenes, click over to Designs & Tips for Downsizing and take a gander at some details on bringing B & G's space to life.

Here's a complete look at their finished space!

I'm still buzzing off this win, and looking forward to breaking down and analyzing each space to give you tools to create this look in your own home!

Stay classy,


  1. What a fun home! Love the chandelier above the dining table and the bedroom with the blue accents. Great job--glad you had fun doing it, too!

  2. This place looks amazing. It seems so bright/light and so spacious for a condo. B & G are very lucky and sound so nice, I hope they enjoy their beautiful new condo! I love the orange wall but my favourite part is the living room :)

  3. I just found your blog- I love your style! We too, have recently downsized (although we are far from retired and have two little kiddos) to a condo. I am in LOVE with this sectional- where would I find it? Also- on another blog, you mentioned an atomic-proof sectional (did I mention I have two little kiddos? :) Where do I find these awesome sectionals?

    1. Thanks so much Emily! I sourced the custom sectional from one of my local suppliers - Van Gogh Design in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Assuming that you're not local to my area and a sectional purchase is tough to do long distance, so I'm not sure if I'll be any help. But, my go-to/fool-proof fabrics almost ALWAYS have a high percentage of OLEFIN fibre, a common outdoor fabric that is incredibly resistance (all fabric absorbs, if it didn't then it would be plastic!) but this stuff you can really attack cleaning-wise. If Olefin is hard to find, there are also alot of 100% Polyester fabrics that I use that are commercial-grade in durability. Hope this helps!! x
