Renelle Design for The Prospector’s House 

Living Room Dining Room

Bedroom Bedroom2

Lower Level The Prospector's House5

Bathroom Loft

Renovation project is a historic family house that was converted into a Bed and Breakfast called The Prospector’s House located in the center of Haileybury, this project honors the prospectors who came to Cobalt (sister town) more than one hundred years ago to develop the mines. The name called for a rustic style and the vision had to amalgamate art, tourism and design.

A simple family home came on to the market and through vision, commitment and talent, Nicole, Jocelyn, and certified interior decorator Renelle Laliberte given the house a soul.

Renelle commented, “For me it was quite an opportunity to have the chance to design something that blends so many Aspects. ”  The result is unique and reflective of the history of the region, as well as its modern-day spirit of a strong and vibrant art community.

The colours and textures of those times, the elements that would have been at hand for those prospectors, have all been tastefully and colourfully incorporated into that home ready to transport guests back one hundred years into the silver boom of Cobalt.

Everything in the home is designed from scratch. The draperies used in the home are designed to reflect the rope element. Renelle gave long and serious thought to even the smallest detail of the buttons used in the draperies.

Every floor of the home has a distinct identity, while still carrying the overall message of The Prospector’s House, noted Renelle. But throughout the home, “the ropes carried everything.” In some areas, the colour theme is of earth colours. In other areas it is the red of the nearby iron mines, while elsewhere the colour theme is dominated by grey, beige and taupe. Renelle noted that designing the home was a budget-conscious project.

The names of prospectors are being used in the home, to intensify the experience of living among them. “This project allows us to provide an experience,” said Renelle. She expressed her pride to have “not only given the owners a beautiful home, but I also have had the privilege to give this experience to everybody who comes here time and time again.”

for Master Bedroom in NY Hotel style

MEI New York Hotel Style Headboard Carpet

Materials and supplies: Headboard, bench fabrics – Kravet, Chair fabric – Maxwell Fabrics, Wallpaper – Crown, Duete Shade – Hunter Douglas

 

Because of the new calming neutral trend colours by painting and wallpapering the walls, the homeowner wanted to have purple as an accent colour for the space. Deciding to keep everything very neutral so that it would be easy in the future to change an accent colour with pillows, beddings and a throw.

Beautiful Canadian crystal chandelier’s reflective light “hides” the popcorn ceiling. A bench, silk drapery, pillows and crystal drapery hardware bring a luxurious feeling to the room. The homeowner’s old chair had sentimental value and was re-upholstered with embroidered linen. A room darkening blind was installed so that the room looks much higher and the window much bigger.

The custom oversized headboard was professionally finished. The colour scheme, which ranges from gray to beige, was used in all surfaces and materials.

Corktown Condominium

Kitchen Living Room

Dining Room Bedroom

This 2 storey, 500 sq.ft. 1 bedroom loft, in downtown Toronto’s ‘Space condo’ features 20’ ceilings and is situated a few blocks away from the desirable Corktown neighbourhood. The loft overlooks picturesque Allan Gardens and its lovely conservatories. Young professionals who live here get to enjoy St. Lawrence Market and The Distillery District (both within walking distance).

The challenge here was for Decoreista Inc. to edit some of the homeowner’s furniture, to make the space appear larger as well as to work within the existing colour theme (the client wasn’t willing to paint). We worked with the vibrant colour palette and ended up adding décor that accentuated the condo’s obvious focal point: a 20’ high apple green wall–along the staircase.

“The rental company was Executive Furniture Rental and the accessories are from Decoreista Inc.’s own inventory. The bedding, accessories and artwork came from fashion-forward décor stores such as: Home Outfitters, HomeSense, Linen Chest, Urban Barn and Bouclair.”

Over the past two decades, Decoreista (a.k.a. DecoREISta™) Lisa has worked with some of the largest real estate developers in Toronto and the GTA. She started her career marketing new homes and condos, which entailed everything from coming up with the name for a brand new sub-division, branding and marketing a new community and finally, decorating the sales centre and model suites…her favourite part!

for Complete Make Over project of Small Space

Living Room

Kitchen Suite Overview

Suite Overview2 Bedroom

This one bedroom 614 sq. ft. girlie glam-punk condo was completely decorated for under 20k for Copperfield Park II in Calgary, Alberta. It features graphic chain link, tufted, and flower foil wall coverings, interesting mirrors, and skulls that are etched into the drinking glasses, and also accessorized on purses and plates throughout the space. Some of the beautiful pieces in the model home are the Thayer Coggin mulberry leather chair, the Della Robbia Bon Bon ottoman next to it, and the Marie Yee bed in the master flanked by a Ralph Lauren side table. The kitchen island is a humble table from Crate and Barrel.

What was most fun about designing the raspberry and wedgwood blue accented condo, were the lambrequin window valances made from Robert Allenfabric, hung on top of swagged and braided string panels from Urban Barn. The silver mosaic backsplash in the kitchen pairs so well with the studs on the mirrored coffee table, the round mirror above the desk niche and the pillows in the master bedroom. The antique black and silver baroque floor mirror was used as an inspiration for the window coverings that reflect directly onto it.
