Parisian Elements

This Surrey whole home renovation completely transformed this 1980’s house.

Originally dark and outdated, the goal of this project was to refresh the home with a Parisian flair. The homeowners desired ‘wow’ factor in every room which meant getting creative with the existing layout and materials to provide the most value possible.

Formal Living & Dining Room

In the formal living and dining room mouldings are the name of the game. Fresh white walls, Parisian inspired panels, wide-plank oak floor, show stopping light fixtures and black trim complete the look. The home’s first impression is now light, airy and looks like a brand-new house.


The updated kitchen finished in shades of blue features mostly refinished millwork. Lori Sutherland and her team at Studio Ten Interior Design did an incredible job of creating a space that visually blends with the rest of the home while incorporating many original elements. Getting creative in this space allowed our team to redirect the budget to other areas that needed it most.

Family Room

The family room is one of the biggest transformations of this entire project. The existing fireplace and surrounding mantle were removed and replaced with a sleek, streamlined fireplace with a secondary focal wall for the television. The wall panels tie the space in with the formal living and dining room and is also finished off with statement lighting.

Upper Level

Upstairs, the master suite is most improved. It’s wall panels, soft grey walls and engineered oak floors provide a serene and upscale backdrop. In the ensuite we moved the door slightly to allow for a larger standing shower completing this refined oasis. The clawfoot tub and beautiful selection of tile finish the space off perfectly.
