Two of the largest Real Estate transactions in Western Canada were designed by Paul Lavoie Interior Design
This past month, two residences who’s interiors were designed by our firm, were the two largest residential Real Estate transactions in Western Canada.
Our designers’ Paul Lavoie and Julie Lanctot have put together a specification package to help people who were affected by water damage. It is our pleasure to provide this specification package, as a guideline, for to anyone who needs it. If you or a friend require this help we can email you a specification; and have colour boards for viewing at our office.
We are all trying our best to pitch-in where we can. It is heart warming to see how many fellow Calgarian’s are doing their best to pitch in.
Paul and Doug wanted to share some tips after helping out friends:
1. Spare Floor Carpets and Sheets… When you gain access to your basement you may need to cover all flooring the leads to the basement, this will reduce the effects of work boots and high traffic to and from the basement.
2. Furniture Movers…Move all furniture out of the line of restoration equipment traffic to your basement; which, may involve large hoses and heavy equipment.
3. Bins and Containers…. Tupperware bins with lips will help sort and move small items from the basement to upstairs. They stack and allow you a moment to regroup your items and keep memorable items organized until they can go back downstairs.
4.Outside debris, outside… If possible when your restoration/cleanup begins try to keep a pathway cleared outside so that outside debris is kept outside.
Be more playful with fabrics in the Summer months; go for brighter, more colourful ones. Try some beautiful blue silks, which can immediately create a totally different, new look for your home.
Derek Chaloner, designer
I am very excited to be part of the Paul Lavoie Interior Design team for my summer work term. I have been seeking a place where my design skills learned in school could be put to the test, and I would have chances to be challenged and grow; I believe this is the place where it will happen. Seeing projects in magazines like Western living, Maclean’s, and Avenue, from people I work with every day, is very inspiring, and gives me a great goal to shoot for.
