This U-shaped kitchen suffered from the box-store blues after a "cheap and cheerful" style renovation done wrong. While the layout was functional, the vibes were way off for this colour-loving family. They sought personality and they got their wish by collaborating with design partner Studio Hemma. The results elevated their lackluster kitchen into a drool-worthy one (that round window alone!).

Beyond the kitchen, this unique townhouse updated and added storage throughout including a built-in media and matching bar, subtle storage and display along the fireplace, and a completely overhauled loft for one particularly cute family member to enjoy.

“A guiding ethos of Studio Hemma is channeling each client's uniqueness and reflecting it in their design. This family was a DREAM to work with and was game to bring in quirk and personality at every turn. The results are a colourful, youthful, joy-filled home they now love living in."
