Out Of Sight Kitchen
For many urban homeowners the ideal kitchen is one that manages to completely hide away when not in use. No unsightly stove top grills, no small appliances crowding the counters, no fridge making its presence known in a bold stainless steel statement. That’s the challenge facing Candice as she tackles a small, out-of-date, shocking pink kitchen for a couple who desire a seamless flow from the front of their beautiful little home right through to the back. In the biggest renovation of the season Candice creates a fabulous kitchen that is there only when it’s needed, and the results are out of sight.

LOFTY KITCHEN DESIGN (Sue Jean & Dave’s Kitchen)
A young couple is admittedly design-challenged, with no idea how to make the most of their converted factory loft. To complicate matters, the plumbing is exposed and disturbingly loud!

Candice rises to the challenge of bringing a one hundred year-old house into the 21st century.

THE ART OF THE UPDATE (Nikki & Peter’s Den)

AT HOME IN A HOME OFFICE (Nicole & Joseph’s Home Office)
Candice tackles a home office for a couple that needs to share a workspace, but definitely don’t share each other’s taste. She converts a chaotic room, filled with clutter and void of style, into a highly functional yet stylish office that comfortably accommodates both partners. As an added bonus, this sleek new space doubles as an after-hours retreat for this hard-working couple.

KITCHENS THAT FLOOR YOU (May & Victor’s Kitchen)
Kitchens are often the ‘hub’ of a household, so they need to be functional, versatile and inclusive. Candice is faced with a dysfunctional main floor layout and a cramped kitchen and that has a family of four falling over each other at mealtime. By reconfiguring the layout and choosing the right flooring, Candice unifies the space, creating a natural flow between adjoining rooms. By adding some much needed counter space and clever storage, Candice delivers this family’s dream kitchen.

FLEXIBLE LIVING (Mary-Anne & Mike’s Living Room)
When a couple moves from a starter home, to their substantially larger dream home, they realize they sorely lack any clearly defined style. The new home is filled with mismatched furniture and is not a comfortable place to host family and friends. With a lot of ground to cover, Candice helps them stretch their design budget, and creates a living room that’s flexible enough to work for large family events, but which still feels warm and intimate for two.

BATHING BEAUTY (Kris & Jonathan’s Master En Suite)
A master en suite needs to make a statement, and this couple has no idea where to start. With loads of dead space between the existing bedroom and bathroom, Candice needs to make sense of this calamitous layout. Taking her inspiration from the great outdoors, she sources natural materials like barn board, stone and quartz. The result is a stunning, elegant en suite that offers a beautiful blend of contemporary design with rustic, warm accents.
