When your life is cluttered, your mind will be as well. I strongly believe there comes a sense of unsettledness that arrives when people live in clutter. The piles, the papers, the mess... it all adds up and takes a toll on our emotions and mental health. And trust me, I am NOT clutter free.
When our friends Brooke and Tyler asked us to come view an acreage they were thinking of putting an offer on we couldn’t wait to see what they had found! We entered the lane and instantly knew they found a gem in the heart of White City. The property was 10 acres, and walking distance from the new school, seconds from town and a private oasis for their busy family.
1 . Clean up that clutter
Sure we all know you have kids because we can see their beautiful faces in the photos around the house. This doesn't mean we want to see all their toys LOL.
The Katepwa Lake House Project was a super fun and challenging project. For me, it stretched me to think in a different direction than I was use to. Our clients asked for a Malibu beach house feel and we all know that I am a little more farmhouse when it comes to design. That is what I love about this industry - we get pushed to think in ways that we aren't always comfortable with and we learn a lot along the way.
It all started with a handwritten letter to a Bay of strangers. Asking them to remember Jared + Renee when they were ready to sell their homes. What started off as a dream for Jared + Renee came true and we were so honoured to be asked to join them on this adventure. After a lot of planning they handed us the keys on April 1, 2018. And 8 months later we handed the keys back to a home that underwent a full top to bottom remodel with 2 new additions and a new dream yard.
Thank you for following us on this journey - it was one we will never forget. Welcome home Lukomski family, welcome home!
