The decor challenge
Joan and her husband have to be the most loving, kind and design savvy retired couple I know. After renovating their Ranch-style home backing on to the Grand River, Joan was on the look out for a bold new painting to display in the epicenter of their home - the family room. I was fortunate that Joan saw my art and said she was immediately attracted by the bold colours of the painting and my expressive style! She wanted nothing less then bold and happy. We made a date for me to visit their home.
Breathtaking. From the hand-crafted glass counter top created by a Montreal artisan, to their taste in Frank Lloyd Wright inspired stained glass...Joan shared the stories of their objet d'arts. Then one day after a few meetings with my new client, I met her husband. And that's where the true story unfolded. Together they are like a fine wine on a romantic summer night. These two are retired zoomers that have filled their home with photos of their family and close friends - and clearly, passionately sharing their Golden Years together, forever.
A custom focal point in the hub of their contemporary renovation with views to their backyard paradise made by the legends of Hollywood.
My job was easy. Incorporate the energy of these zoomers and their life passion colour: Solid Gold meets Frank Lloyd Wright!
