Residential Interior Design Projects
Everyone Has Their Own Space
This acreage property offered plenty of space to extend this building to the north. Also, the brick face was removed and salvaged for reinstallation on the addition. The goal was to seamlessly add the addition without the exterior giving evidence to it’s existence.

What is Residential Interior Design?
Interior design defines how we experience a space. Its purpose is to design creative solutions for the effective use of your interior space that are at once functional and aesthetically attractive.
As interior designers, we may work on your project right from the initial residential design stage or we may be involved in remodeling an existing structure
Designing the interior of a private residence is a very individual process — the needs and wants of the home’s occupants are paramount.
Our step-by-step process addresses everything within the exterior walls of your home, from planning the interior flow and sight lines (by positioning walls, doors and work areas) to making your day-to-day living more enjoyable and efficient and reflective of your lifestyle.
Each feature or area in your home is planned and considered in relation to the rest of the space.
Regardless of its size, a well-designed home should give you more of what you really want — whether that’s family time, leisure time, personal time, or all of the above.
The Interior Design Process
Your interior design plan begins with a detailed look at your current lifestyle as well as your aspirations for how you will use your new or remodeled space.
- When designing your interior, we focus on your functional needs by getting to know how you live:
- How does the flow of people work within the 4 outer walls of your home?
- What are the requirements of your daily routine?
- Where will the main family interactions take place?
- How can the interior of your home be designed to enhance your quality of life or lifestyle?
We begin by making sure we address the structural and functional requirements before shifting attention to the finishing details that add visual and aesthetic appeal.
The overall concept for your interior design will be conveyed through sketches, a colour board, finish descriptions, and schedules. We have detailed knowledge of where to source the best materials to create your dream home interior.
During the process, we will guide you through up to 1,500 decisions, covering every facet of your interior design.
The Design Finishing Binder
Every design decision is captured by our Exacting Project Control System which documents each finishing decision from faucets, stoves, and lighting to counters, paint and flooring.
All of the product specifications and interior finishes, installation guides, are included in your design finishing binder:
- Exterior finishes (color, shingles, siding, railings, etc.)
- Appliances (refrigerator, oven, warming drawer, microwave, dishwasher, wine fridge, etc.)
- Plumbing fixtures (sinks, faucets, toilets, showerhead, drains, garburator, etc.)
- Millwork (custom vs. ready-made) (built-ins, cabinets, etc.)
- Doors (type, size, swing, hardware, etc.)
- Trim (casings, baseboards, railings, mantles, paneling, ceiling features, etc.)
- Finishing schedule – a compilation of every finish in the house (flooring, tile, paint, countertops, glass features, etc.)
- Paint plan – a paint by number map showing which color goes on each wall
- Flooring – a floor plan showing where to install different types of flooring (tile, hardwood, carpet, etc.) and in what pattern
- Electrical (outlet locations and heights, stereo systems, internet connectivity, etc.)
- Lighting (decorative and task lighting)
During the execution, your design finishing binder and colour board live on-site so that every tradesperson can see the final design plan. This ensures they have all of the information they need to correctly build or install each and every element of your home.

We transform a space to match your vision.
Do you love the location of your home but the space just doesn’t fit your needs anymore?
Have you moved into an established neighbourhood with great amenities but a house that doesn’t suit your lifestyle?
You don’t need to give up your fond memories, neighbours, or school district to live in a home that meets your high standards and expectations.
A home renovation may be all you need to upgrade to your dream house.
Contemplating a home renovation is a daunting prospect. You may worry that the final outcome may not turn out as planned. You’re anxious about the impact of ongoing construction on your day-to-day life. You’ve heard horror stories about costs spiralling out of control and disappearing contractors.
We’re here to eliminate those fears. Like all of our past clients, you can rely on Decca to safeguard your time, money, comfort, and pride of ownership.
Our secret to success hinges on taking the time to get to know you and your family. We strive to understand your needs and concerns so we can transform your home into your oasis, custom built to suit your unique tastes and style.
A home renovation lets you stay in your current neighbourhood, where you enjoy familiar sights and sounds, old friends, and the same schools for your children — not to mention avoid the stress of moving and adjusting to a new home.
We evolve the individual components of a house into the realization of a home. A comfortable, tailored environment that you’ll be proud to call your own. A timeless home where you can both entertain and raise your family.
We offer five key services as part of your home renovation. They include, but are not limited to:
