To be contacted by a New Client and commence discussions about their Project is an absolutely thrilling aspect of my creative job as a Designer! My radar is honed on the language my New Client uses to explain how the present state of their home fails them and their Family. My love is to translate those frustrations into a Beautiful Solution! A beautiful solution that explores new ways to think about their Space, new material elements to experience within their Space and new function for the development of their New Space. The pretty parts are only half of a well-developed solution. I start the process with Mood & Inspiration Boards combined with tactile samples. These tools connect my Clients to the Design Vision and are a fantastic catalyst in the forward motion of the Project. The dialogue between my Clients & I over the Mood Boards is exhilarating and the wealth of information exchanged allows for an immediate flow forward to create CAD Elevations with every nuance of Design within.

McNeil Design Group Interiors ‘Dazzling Master Suite Walk-in Closet Expansion’. To transform the original 4.5 Ft wide one-sided closet into a spacious Master Walk-in Closet, the adjoining rooms were assessed and a plan set in place to give space to the new Master Closet without detriment to the adjoining rooms. Opening out the space allowed for custom closed cabinetry and custom open organizers to flank walls and maximize the storage opportunities. The lighting was immensely upgraded with LED recessed and a stunning centre fixture, all on separate controllable dimmers. A glamorous palette of chocolates, plum, gray and twinkling chrome set the tone of this elegant Master Closet. Photography courtesy of Nicole Aubrey Photography.
McNeil Design Group Interiors ‘Fun & Fabulous Master Bedroom Suite’.
This Master Bedroom retreat was designed and created for a fun, hip Young Couple who live a full and modern lifestyle. This incredibly spacious bedroom was an absolute blank slate that needed alterations to the enclosed main bedroom, ensuite bath and walk-in closet to fully create the high functioning spaces the Clients desired. The bedroom, ensuite bath and storage needed to embody the zest of the Clients, give specific purpose to the zones and ultimately bring all the aspects together to create their dream Master Bedroom retreat! Two distinctive individuals with eclectic tastes and passions for fashion, technology, art and nature.
The walk-in closet was reconfigured spatially to designate more open area to this important zone. With this new configuration a huge custom closet was created for the Lady of the House. A custom ‘Gentleman’s Armoire’ was designed and installed within the space of the Master Bedroom. Tons of customized drawers, hanging spaces, pull outs to accommodate a lifetime of fashion choices.
Modern tones of grey, bold dark stained woods, fun lively patterns and textural elements. The furnishings and accessories were curated to the Clients passions and created a visually interesting transitional environment.
