Character Home Transformation

This charming 1912 house received a cosmetic makeover for the market


When we first visited this home in Elbow Park, our reaction was a lot like most potential buyers. Charming heritage house, nicely upgraded over the years and in great condition, but it was hard to get past the dark and intense paint colour scheme and dated looking interiors. It seemed like a big stretch to envision this house for today’s lifestyles and tastes. The homeowners had already purchased a new home and were moving out, so we advised repainting most of the interior, plus some other cosmetic updates to really refresh the palette. With the home empty, this made it easier for us to come in and radically change the look and feel for potential purchasers.

And a radical change it was! A fresh, neutral paint treatment in whites made such a difference, and the contrasts brought in by an interesting and unexpected mix of modern and funky/rustic furniture pieces, sophisticated artwork and great accessories gave the home a newly modern vitality.

Let Dekora create that love at first sight feeling for your home.
