Laundry Never Looked So Good!

Outside of the kitchen and bath, the laundry room is another household space that is getting increased attention when it comes to remodelling.  Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design specializes in Kelowna renovation projects, and this summer, I helped my lovely clients transform their laundry room into a functional and beautiful space.

When developing the design, I considered elements including access to water, proper storage, space for a washer, dryer, sink, countertop, and clearance space for moving around easily.  Atmosphere-wise, we were shooting for a crisp, clean, modern feel.

One of the changes that substantially impacted the functionality of the space was removing the previous closet to add a folding counter area with a laundry bin and shelf.  Previously there was no space to sort and fold clean clothes.  The space also has a clothing rod where items can be hung.  This was a huge convenience improvement.

I wanted to create a bright space that combined different textures, colours and finishes. I went with hex white marble floors for a clean and luxurious feeling and bright lighting to make the room appear even larger. The Thibaut linen wall coverings, installed by Kelowna’s top professional paperhanger DWC Drop Wallcoverings, flow into the marble penny round tiles on adjacent walls, offering the perfect juxtaposition that defines the room’s different spaces.Laundry Never Looked So Good!

For the custom-designed millwork, I selected Benjamin Moore Van Courtland Blue HC-145, a perfectly muted blue that makes a subtle yet sophisticated impact.  The cabinetry over the washer and dryer takes advantage of the space with extra deep storage.  Satin brass hardware, an antique brass arm wall sconce, and a sleek picture ledge bring some extra character and a homey feel to the room.Laundry Never Looked So Good by Kelowna Interior Designer, Natalie Fuglestveit

Sometimes working in smaller spaces can be so rewarding, as was the case with this renovated laundry room. I hope this space makes the daily chore of laundry a bit more enjoyable for my clients. As an Okanagan interior design company, NFID serves clients from Vernon to Penticton and the surrounding areas.

Head Over Heals for this Luxe Bedroom

Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design recently completed this luxe bedroom transformation!

Our clients were craving a tranquil and clutter-free space to unwind and relax in at the end of the day, something simplistic in design yet luxurious.  Functionality was also considered, and we ensured that plenty of storage and living space was a part of the finished product.

We drew inspiration for this space from natural materials, showcasing their diversity with the ample natural light that the room’s windows provided.  Neutrals are amazing as they bring an instant feeling of luxury and style to any space, which is exactly what we were going for.  At NFID, we love to incorporate raw materials to establish a timeless environment that can easily be switched up in the future if desired.

NFID went with C2 Paint Architectural White, which created a bright and airy backdrop for the bedroom. From the custom sheer ripple fold drapery to the linen bedding and wool carpet, raw textures and colours are scattered throughout the space.  We instilled some personality in the space by layering different materials and utilizing patterns.  Don’t let the brightness of the space fool you…we also included custom linen blackout drapes to ensure a good night’s rest.Luxe Bedroom Design by Kelowna Interior Designer, Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design.

The overhead Kelly Wearstler light fixture commands your attention, creating a modern and warm ambiance.  Its bold design and pop of colour make it the perfect visual anchor to the bedroom’s minimalistic feel. NFID selected Restoration Hardware furnishings and satin brass finishes to tie all the room’s elements together and create a cohesive atmosphere.

NFID really enjoyed designing this luxe bedroom and hope our clients enjoy its elegance and sophistication for many years to come.
