Project Gurnett: Embracing colour and pattern

Project Gurnett: Embracing colour and pattern

Every once in awhile you get a client who is not afraid of colour or pattern. A rare find! Stephanie, a fantastic art director (btw), was in the midst of renovating her new home and got in touch with Hemme. We first met up for a fabric consultation as the starting point (always start with fabric). During the lockdown, we would send her swatches through the mail and email her photos of fabrics that landed on our desk. We ALWAYS recommend that you see the fabric in the space.

Tropical palm leaf bed pillow

She chose this Kravet Majorelle Blush for her bedroom, bringing a tropical dose of to the space – in a modern way. We also made a coordinating bed lumbar pillow in the same fabric.

Here are a few shots of the work we have done with Stephanie.

Painterly green floral drapes from Hemme Custom

These beautiful green painterly floral drapes were made for her living room and completely changed the look of the space. We did contemporary flat panels and hung them tight to the ceiling, creating height in the room. 


This set of drapes – in a whimsical but modern bird print – were hung in her home office. 

Blue and White Roman Shade by Hemme Custom

One of our favourite sources for fabrics is Schumacher and we love this Abstract Leaf pattern for her bathroom.

Green and white Roman Shade by Hemme Custom

A Roman shade is a great way to showcase a special fabric, and you don't need a lot of yardage so it keeps the costs down. We love the green and white feather print paired with the black and white palette offset with the natural wood door. 

Striped Roman shade by Hemme Custom

A pretty striped Roman shade plays well with the area rug in this walk-in closet.

Upholstered Chair Makeover by Hemme Custom

Stephanie had this chair with great bones but it was worn. She chose this lively green and yellow leaf pattern to work with the rest of her home and fabric choices. Everything is looking so good! We love working with Stephanie!

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.
