Work Week Recap 1

Can someone please tell me where Summer has gone? As far as I’m concerned, July just didn’t happen. The past few weeks have been such a blur – work has been extremely busy but that’s just the way it goes in this industry!

With such a busy Summer full of exciting projects & upcoming personal activities, my blog content has been a little scarce, to say the least.

This is why I thought I’d do a weekly round up of my findings, show a little behind-the-scenes of some projects I’m working on & other general inspiration I see throughout my work weeks. So follow along as I recap the last 2 weeks of this extremely busy Summer!

JESSICA KELLY DESIGN: Our #MertonSt project is quickly starting to take shape. We’re bringing this once dark & dated Kitchen back to life with some white high-gloss Ikea cabinetry & brushed brass accents. Countertop templating was done this week and after much deliberation, we went with Frosty Carina by Caesarstone!

 JESSICA KELLY DESIGNOur #Hillsdale project is finally a wrap after a year of planning, designing & anticipating this massive addition/renovation. These clients were absolute rock stars, living through it all with their young children. Little touches like this llama in their girls’ bathroom make me smile – it complements the perfectly pastel colour palette!


ALLAN & CHANDON DESIGN: To say that my phone has been inundated with tile photos would be a huge understatement. That’s just the price you pay when looking for the perfect Powder Room floor for our #Beresford project. This Powder Room will be impactful, elegant but with a bit of a modern twist. JUST WAIT until you see what we have planned for the ceiling! #AllTheHeartEyes

ELIZABETH MONTILLA DESIGN: Recently someone asked how I manage working for multiple designers, and if I ever get their projects mixed up. While it can often be difficult for scheduling, I say it’s all about organization. I plan my week on Monday and go from there. You can find me pounding the pavement in the Castlefield Design District at least 1 to 2 days, and then I’m either on site with clients or doing pickups/drop offs of samples around the city. How do I get through it all? Caffeine.

Thanks so much for reading my first Work Week Recap! I’m excited to show you more behind the scenes of my daily grind.
