Project Veitch House: A Sauble Beach vacation rental

Project Veitch House: A Sauble Beach vacation rental

This gorgeous beach house was one of our first big Hemme projects. From drapes to pillows, Mandy had a lot of fun pulling it together. But the highlight was swimming at the beach and sipping cocktails on the deck (all in a days work!).

Sauble Beach vacation rental: Images displaying before and after

It started with a site visit while this Scandi inspired home was still being built. We consulted on window treatments, fabric choices and did a check measure all in one visit. It evolved into a design consult for the main living area and then we went to work!

Kitchen with Sage green cabinets, marble counter top and abstract kitchen runner. Open shelving, stainless steal fridge.

The kitchen was already in the works so we helped pull together the finishing touches through our design services. Just waiting on that backsplash tiled to be installed.

The beautiful home is located around the corner from the famous beach, nestled into a cedar forest so keeping the materials light and natural was key to reflecting the outdoors. So we chose classic sandy linen drapes and subtly striped Romans shades.

We installed our first readymade shower curtain in her bathroom, which is available in our new shop!

 Hemme Custom Pillows

With all the key elements being neutral, she wanted to punch up the personality with some boho pillows. We put together a fun scheme for her and she loves mixing and matching the pillows throughout the space.

She wanted to keep the bedrooms calm and minimal but wanted to add in some colour, so we made custom king size quilts for each bed pulling from the pillow palette. Hey, we can make a lot of things! 

We are still working on the space and decorating the outdoor entertaining space in summer 2021. Here are more photos of this lovely home:

Upcycled Sleeping Bag Pillows

Upcycled Sleeping Bag Pillows

We do all sorts of custom sewing for our clients! And we were excited when this project came our way. We transformed beloved 1970s sleeping bags into 11 new pillows that our client gave to family as gifts. Fun idea, right?

The sleeping bags were in rough shape and shredding before our eyes but we tried to save every scrap we could, including sewing on the original silk tag and used the cording as zipper pulls.

Each pillow was completely unique on both front and back side.

We used a hearty linen to blend with the sleeping bag fabric and finished with exposed brass zippers (like you would find on vintage sleeping bags).

Our client was thrilled and we had a lot of fun putting them together.
