Project Massey: Kitchen Makeover & Dining Nook

Project Massey: Kitchen Makeover & Dining Nook

This summer, we worked with a client on their kitchen and dining nook makeover. Not to brag, but our clients have the best style! 

First, the client worked directly with Mandy to pull together the finishing touches on the kitchen plan they were in the midst of executing. They already had the kitchen designed, they just needed help with finishes like cabinet colour, lighting, hardware and the soft bits like Roman shades and a custom banquette cushion (our specialty). Custom cabinetry was made by Greg Moogk.

Hemme really came through with the dining nook. We created this breezy Roman shade that filters in soft light and adds a hint of texture. 

Next came the custom bench seat. Since the bench consisted of two pieces that jogged an obstruction in the wall, we created a paper template of the bench to ensure a perfect fit.

We helped the client choose this gorgeous blue velvet, injecting some colour into the space. 

We finished the look with a mix of custom pillows (made by us, of course!) and some readymade pillows from Tonic Living.

It started with the beautiful drapery fabric and went from there! We helped our client choose fabric for pillows, a dining bench and multiple window treatments. We also helped her source paint and wallpaper (we are not your average workroom!).  Continue reading

Project Northfield: Breezy Bungalow

Project Northfield: Breezy Bungalow

It was such a joy to work on this project, not only because our client's home is gorgeous but because she was our first drapery client! We made her off-white double pinch drapery panels (quickly becoming a Hemme signature style) for her living and dining room. She paired them with rattan shades creating a stunning combination. That's how you dress a window! 

She carried the look over to her dining room, giving the open floor plan a cohesive look.

With all the light and breezy elements, the simple black hardware frames the windows and adds some dimension. Well done!

We would love to help you with your drapery, fill out the drapery form to get started.

Project Westfield: Backyard Pillow

Project Westfield: Backyard Pillow

Our client had a small remnant from one of her favourite fabrics and asked if we could make her a pillow. We squeezed out a cute little lumbar that brightens up her backyard and adds some support to her patio chairs. Isn't it sweet?

We love making pillows, they are so satisfying. Fill out the custom sewing form to start your pillow.

Project Osler: Drapery Alterations

Project Osler: Drapery Alterations

Did you know we do alterations as well? These drapes were beautifully made by another workroom but needed to be hemmed and have some width reduced.

Hemme to the rescue! We altered the panels and Dan installed them for the client on a double channel track hardware system. We love how the inverted pleats work with the fabrics she chose.

Project Chestnut Hill: Install Day!

Project Chestnut Hill: Install Day!

Our partner, Elegant Installations just finished installing these gorgeous drapes (note Dan's tools in the corner!). Our client chose off-white double pinch pleat drapes on a traverse rod (also known as a channel track). This style of hardware looks like a traditional drapery rod but has a channel built-in so your drapes glide effortlessly. It also allows you to hang heavier drapes across a large window with multiple brackets to support the weight. It is one of our top styles of hardware!

Isn't this dining room absolutely stunning?!
