SOHO Eclectic Modern

The space: A modern one bedroom condo located in the heart of downtown Ottawa

The challenge: There are several units for sale in the building of similar feature and size. The goal was to make the space look distinct from the others so that potential buyers will remember it easily as "That one with the green sofa".

Storyline: The space was created around the green sofa but didn't really start to come together until I found the deer photography mounted print. The dark evergreen on the print and the browns and tans of the deer and the frame helped to pull together the green sofa and the beautiful dark hardwood floors. I chose a glass console table and glass coffee table to keep the space feeling open and airy. In the bedroom I went with a minimal modern look, keeping the lines as clean as possible. When the owner came in to view the staging, I had the magnolia wreath on the bed and she asked me to hang it on the wall. I like how it adds a bit of personality to the room.
