Design in Action

We are incredibly grateful to some of our clients who have engaged us in design consultations at their homes and have been willing to share a few before and afters of their interior spaces. Enjoy a look at their transformations!

One of the most vital steps in our design process is that initial meeting with our clients, where we take the time to really ask those pertinent questions that will help us establish the best plan to execute their needs and wants in the final design. In this particular case our client revealed to us that she wanted to create a calm environment and her suggestion was to add some type of pastel colour. During the conversation she expanded on this, mentioning that she loved the ocean and would love it if we could incorporate elements that would give her living room space a subtle “beach theme”.

The design challenges that she really wanted us to help her with were accessorizing the shelving unit on either side of her television and styling her coffee and dining tables with an interesting centrepieces that would compliment the new look and colour scheme for her space. A sample board would further help us pull together some ideas to acheive these goals.

Our client already had beautiful furniture, so ultimately our job was to enhance it with interior styling ie. by adding the jewellery to the room and achieving her goal of creating a calming environment with some colour changes.

Seafoam green seemed the perfect calming hue that would also speak to her love of the ocean and beach. We created unity in the room by repeating this colour with many of the accents including cushions, custom made in Canada. We love suggesting this to our clients as there are so many different options of fabric to choose from.

Additional accents were selected based on their beachy feel. Watery blue glass pieces and crisp whites came together with natural wooden tones to complete the look.

The before and after images demonstrate how different a room can look just by simply changing the colour and placement of accessories and pillows.

The ultimate compliment upon completion of this space came when our client let us know that she was so happy with the outcome of her main living area that she has asked us to come back in the fall to decorate the upstairs of her home. We look forward to asking those all important questions again as it pertains to that space so she will find joy in it as well!

This client is a minimalist and wanted to change her existing décor and also needed some new pieces to compliment and enhance what she already had. We were given the opportunity to help her with all areas of her home. We wanted to warm up the spaces by adding gold tones throughout and we created harmony and flow by utilizing similar tones in different areas of the house.

We always start with a conversation and visit to the home so we can see it in person and see what the goals are for the space. Then we create a sample board with suggestions for making the transformation.

“We moved into our new house and then came the daunting task of doing the finishing touches – or as some may call it, adding the jewellery. I’m not good at decorating and don’t enjoy shopping so I had Vanessa at Modern Accents come to my house and proceed to complete each and every room. She is incredible and pays attention to detail. Modern Accents is definitely the nicest store in Kelowna and thanks to Vanessa I absolutely love my new home.” – Tammy

The goal for our next client was to warm up and modernize several rooms in her home. Our approach was to transform these spaces with some new accents that complimented her existing furniture pieces and we worked to simplify how decor pieces were arranged so the final look was impactful and clean.

“Our visit to Modern Accents in the fall of 2023 prompted me to engage Vanessa for an in-home design consultation. It proved to be a wonderful decision! I knew that it was time to update and create more “warmth”  in our living room and dining room spaces as well as brighten up our family room but didn’t know how to achieve it. I was reluctant to take on this task myself. Vanessa’s expertise and insight into our style preferences produced fantastic results! After visiting our home, Vanessa was able to source unique pieces that enhanced and complemented our existing furnishings. Her personal approach and understanding of our goals for our spaces made the process a fun and positive experience. “

Like all our design projects we began with a visit to the clients’ space and got a sense of their hopes for their home and took note of the pieces that they already had to work with as well as the general style and colours, finishes etc. currently in the living space.

The modern design of their home, all the windows bringing lots of light, and the gorgeous hues of the floor to ceiling fireplace and the finishes in the kitchen would ultimately guide our design and the decision to infuse rich warm colours into the design.

“We decided to take advantage of the Modern Accents Interior Design team to recreate a new look for our living room. They styled our room by choosing a new colour pallet as well as adding new furniture to compliment our existing decor. My husband and I are thrilled with the outcome and we are so excited and proud to share this new look with our friends and family. We very much appreciate the great customer service we received from Modern Accents throughout the entire process.”

Once we saw the space the fun of pulling everything together began. We came back to the store and created a sample board that included some pieces that we already had in store as well as some pieces that we would special order just for this space. For example, we chose custom fabric for the swivel chairs and had cushions made to co-ordinate for the sofa. We wanted to pull those amazing terracota hues found in the stonework through some of the furnishings, artwork and accessories in order to unify the look and bring warmth. Accents like candles holders, bowls, vases, and artwork were finishing touches that unified the look.

What a transformation. The space was already beautiful, but the addition of the colour and new furnishings just elevated the living room even more. The softer texture of the upholstery and throw pillows make the room more inviting and cozy and the result really shows us that a modern home doesn’t have to be stark and all white or neutral, unless that is your taste. In this case the rich earth tones and artistic touches are representative of our clients and their lifestyle. A great design should showcase a beautiful aesthetic and be comfortable too. These are spaces we need to live in after all, and we are excited for our clients to share their space with family and friends.
