Client Reveal: #TheManchun

It’s time for another Kresswell client project reveal and today we’re sharing a basement renovation project we worked on with Revive Developments that we fell so in love with! Today we’re introducing you to…. #themanchun

Our clients are a young growing family who were looking to complete their basement renovation, especially with a new addition on the way! They had already done extensive work to the house upstairs but then lost a bit of momentum when it came to heading downstairs. That’s where we jumped in.

First, a look at the basement bathroom and our initial design concept. We all fell in love with this particular encaustic cement tile - the unique pattern and bold hue - so it became the starting point. With the floor being such a focal point, we went classic white subway in the shower and then supported the colour palette with a combo of white and blue-green paint. This particular feature wall is Newburg Green by BM and we couldn’t love it more! A walnut vanity adds some softness, while the brass sconces take it up a notch and pops against that bold hue!

And now for the finished space (and forgive us for the photos here - basement bathrooms are especially tricky to photograph!!)

Laundry rooms are quickly becoming one of our favourite rooms to design! Especially when clients get on board with such stunning wallpaper! And when you see this particular floral and bird combination from Dwell, I think you’ll agree it was the right call for this space. When you have to venture down into the basement to do laundry, no one’s favourite chore, then it’s important to keep it bright and welcoming. A place that makes you happy! Here’s the concept we started with…

Finally, we tackled the main living space - an entertainment area, a full wine room and bar nook! Believe it or not, we managed to create this entire area from IKEA parts and, if we can pat ourselves momentarily on the back, we think it turned out pretty incredible. Big props to our team at Revive for this incredible install. Check out the dark and moody wine bar concept…

We couldn’t be more happy with how this basement renovation turned out and feel so grateful to have met these clients. Now they get a whole new floor to expand their life into and we’re sure there will be many amazing memories created here.

Big thank you to Revive for yet another great partnership complete!
