Design Inspiration

Take a tour through this beautiful interior design project from Lori Steeves of Simply Home Decorating - showcasing the best of both coasts! This stunning 9000 square foot home located on Prince Edward Island combines Lori’s modern, west coast design aesthetic with the traditional, east coast architectural bones of the home – for a stunning result. Also featured? Curated decor and furniture from Canadian small businesses and artisans including custom-made furniture from us at Once A Tree! The OAT team has been collaborating with Lori for over 10 years now, and this was a particularly special project for us as 80% of the furniture and lighting was sourced from Once A Tree and our team had the opportunity to travel and work first-hand on the install in P.E.I! 

As with every project she takes on, Lori went to great lengths to source and design pieces specific to the clients’ taste and style (which was a mix of “old farmhouse” and “sleek and modern”). For this project, we worked with Lori to source a variety of unique pieces like the Austin Cocktail Table Set from Arteriors Home, Jade Chair from Once A Tree, the Genesis Rug from Jaipur Living, and customized furnishings to her clients’ liking – including this Tully Sofa from Lee Industries, Jackson Coffee Table from our very own STUDIO collection, and Aaron Chair from American Leather. And the media took notice! Lori’s project was featured in a highly coveted 12-page spread in the Summer Edition of Style at Home as well as in its French counterpart Décormag

Scroll through some of the highlights, captured by Provoke Studios, to see why this project was met with great acclaim. 

“What is truly unique about OAT is that I am able to design custom pieces that they can build for me in addition to them supplying from their large number of vendors. I can also have them customize their wide range of studio designs to suit our client’s needs.” - Lori Steeves
