Final Images // {Altadore 3} Main Bath & Laundry

Here are the secondary rooms on the upper level of the home we recently completed in Altadore for the most amazing clients...she is my long lost NYC sister.

{lucy's bath}
Sweet sweet little Lucy, love this girl so much. At the age of 4 she has so much character and personality. This bathroom was designed just for her and it all started with the amazing wall lights from Visual Comfort, from there it took off.

'The perfect shade of pink' is what she wanted, and that is just what she got for her room. I am very excited to see all of the amazing fabrics and pieces go into her room, moving day for the clients is this coming Monday...when they make this house a home. Of course the closet had been staged and prepped to make Lucy feel more comfortable with the notion of moving, that can be a hard transition for the littles and this is one way to make it easier on them!

As I have mentioned, the clients are NYC transplants, making the laundry room one of the clients favorite areas in the home. I can attest that after having to do laundry at either laundry mats or dingy basements when I lived in the city I would be all over this space too!! To keep it a bit edgy and not so polished I had our plumbing company make a hanging rod out of gas line, just the right amount of edge for the small space.

I'll be sharing the master bathroom with you next week along with the lower level wine cool. Stay tuned and have a great weekend!! Mel xo

Personal {family photos}

We have been so fortunate to have our family's growth documented by Maria Lang over the last 4 years. Every time I book a session with her I get so giddy with excitement to work together and especially to the final product!! We were initially scheduled to have family photos taken in mid-October...but this is Calgary, so of course the snow fell and it fell hard. I kept putting it off, between cold temperatures & sick children I thought we would never get them done. Even on the day we ended up shooting Maria & I were calling each other trying to decide if we should or shouldn't. Well, let me tell you...I am SO glad we did! Here is a peek at her amazing talent (and my cute boys)...

We took our photos in our backyard, the snow was deep, the wind had a chill, but the trees appeared to be covered in crystals, it was beautiful and I am beyond thrilled with the final images!

Below are just a few faves from over the years, thank you Maria for your talent!! xx

 If you are in the Calgary area or coming to visit and want AMAZING photos of your family get in touch with Maria!! Mel xo

Montgomery {final images}

I received some images from the shoot that the insanely talented Tracey Ayton did from the home I talked about here. I wanted to share these with you, they are on our website but I had to showcase them on this form as well. Tracey has an amazing eye, her images are perfect and they capture the space in a beautiful way.

Our Home {exterior}

We had the exterior of our home photographed for our web site literately hours before winter decided to show up here in Calgary. Since fall is my favorite time of the year I thought it was the perfect time to capture the place I call home.

Since we are nestled in the trees it is hard to get a clear full shot of the front, and let me just tell you, forget about getting a pic of the back...trees galore!! We can literately stand on our deck and touch the towering aspens, it is so peaceful and I love it.

I know I haven't shared much from the interior, and you have asked, but I am have yet to have professional images taken. Since there are sites like Pinterest & Decorpad I just don't feel comfortable sharing image of our home without them being done properly and with the right lighting. But I do hope to share some with you soon, don't worry!

So that is the home I share with my boys, it is proving to be a wonderful house with amazing memories being made daily...and I am finally feeling 'at home' here. Have an amazing weekend all!!! Mel xo
