As we approach the end of summer, a lot of soon-to-be empty nesters are considering their options. It used to be that once the kids left the house, you stayed in that same house for many years after.

With a love of renovating, these homeowners 'downsized' to a 2200 sq.ft. apartment condo adorned with an 80's design style.

Having renovated their own home over the years, these two knew what they wanted but just needed a little help bringing it all together. After creating an open concept floor plan, we worked with them to pull inspiration from their amazing art collection, creating an Art Deco design style that could be carried throughout their new high rise.
