 RENOVATION PROJECT

Our design studio is located in the beautiful Comox Valley, British Columbia.  

Most of our plans start with a sketch and brainstorming (pencil to paper) followed by a the creation of a 3D rendering, which brings the vision to life and allows us to play with textures and colours. 

 
We completely redesigned and renovated this former bedroom into the new home for our studio.In order to create value for resale or rental at a later date, we designed this so that the desk can be pulled out and replaced with a queen bed. The side tables then become night tables.

Custom live-edge table and built-in banquette. This new design made the space more functional than the original builder floor plan. No more hitting heads on the light fixture! We also removed a wall to make the space more open and inviting.

RENOVATION PROJECT

We had a lot of fun working on this kitchen transformation. Working with our fabulous client, we helped her turn her traditional kitchen into a contemporary space more in line with her vision. The kitchen was transformed from a dark and cramped space into a light, bright and airy gourmet kitchen. Every inch of this project was thought out in advance including the hidden panelled dishwasher, drawer heights to fit our client’s pots and specialized drawer inserts. Other bespoke features include the dining banquette designed specifically for our client’s seating preferences, custom maple live edge table and 180 degree opening doors to the laundry area for ease of access.

RENOVATION PROJECT

This luxurious master ensuite is the result of a lot of careful thought put towards aesthetics, function and safety; plus, careful attention to detail (down to the 1/32 of an inch) by all involved in this project (including our fabulous clients)!

Thanks to my hubby Dustin Kneeland (Main Street Renovations), for triple thinking every move on this complicated install. This luxurious bathroom includes an under mount quartz Bain Ultra tub with heated air flow and back rest, steam shower with heated floors and seat, heated towel rack, custom vanity, hidden storage cabinet behind artwork (thanks Charlie Mitchell), specialty lighting and more.

An install like this goes smoothly with the right team:)

 DESIGN PROJECT

This commercial health services building located on the waterfront in downtown Comox is currently undergoing a complete exterior transformation with the help our our design work.

Crowne Isle Rancher Gets a Touch of Christmas Glam.

 

HOME STYLING PROJECT

We styled this home in Crowne Isle, which had been on the market for several months, for the charity Anderton Gardens Christmas Home Tour. Using some of the owners' furniture and some items brought in from local businesses, we created a warm, elegant Christmas style.  The home sold shortly thereafter to some happy buyers.

Special thanks to Bethany Van Hecke and Realtor Alice East for their help with this job. 

 

 
In the living room, we used the owner's existing leather recliner and glass table and brought in custom chosen couch and love seat, plus silver accent rug, throw pillows and Christmas decor courtesy of local providers.

From Dark & Dated to Fabulous Farmhouse

 

HOME DESIGN & STYLING PROJECT

HomeGlow owner Sharleen & her husband Dustin, owner of Main Street Renovations, have been gradually transforming this iconic 1935 Courtenay property on 5th Street into a showcase for their work.

 

When they purchased the home in 2009, it had knob and tube wiring, no insulation, years of wear & tear and just few updates since 1935. Today, it's a bright and airy space with an open floor plan and vintage farmhouse style.

Classic French style landscaping & patio compliments the property and lends an air of opulence.

 

 
White wainscotting and a vintage style pendant light brighten  this formerly dark entrance , while a heated floor of polished slate tile adds comfort & style.

Luxe Master Ensuite Adds Comfort & Style

 

HOME DESIGN PROJECT

With this complete bathroom renovation, we designed everything from the ground up including the finishing selections, design of the custom tile mat on the heated floor and the inlay on the steam shower walls. A classic clawfoot tub adds vintage panache and wainscotting lends architectural interest.

 

 
The existing clawfoot tub was refinished and a new faucet was installed to make this once neglected bath shine again.

A Historical Home Gets a New Coat of Paint & Vintage Flair

 

HOME DESIGN PROJECT

When this circa 1948 home was purchased, the closed off floor plan, 1950s kitchen cabinets and white and green colour scheme made it feel dark and dated.  We designed an open floor plan to create more flow and updated the home in an on-trend vintage inspired style that aligned with the character of the home and increased its appeal to young families moving into the neighbourhood. 

Finally, a fresh coat of dark burgundy exterior paint and some carefully chosen architectural features, combined with a little elbow grease, made this home sparkle. 

 

 

From Bare Bones Basement to Deluxe Executive Suite

 

HOME DESIGN PROJECT

We transformed this formerly bare and dusty basement into warm and inviting luxury suite. High gloss tiles infuse added light into the space, while a recycled kitchen was added to save costs.

Wood floors and an open plan make the space warm and inviting.
