Downtown Condo Life
This client wanted a total change from her home when downsizing to a condo. She wanted colours she loved to be done tastefully, yet fun.
We removed the kitchen wall to create a more open concept; custom built a living room cabinet in soft grey taupe, matching the tones of our neutral colour palette for the custom kitchen cabinets and backsplash.
Finally, we customized and reupholstered her existing furniture pieces. She loved her new home with a neutral palette and explosions of colour!
This client wanted a kitchen update without the full expense of a total rip out.
We had the cabinets painted professionally, by removing all the doors and drawer faces and painted off-site. The balance of the kitchen was sprayed on site.
New quartz counters and glass backsplash completed this kitchen, working with existing elements in the room. Our client was in love with the update!
These clients wanted a unique piece that would provide storage with a TV and Fireplace. We mixed high lacquer finish with a beautifully grained wood to compliment existing wood and wowed them with this beautifully finished piece.
This room was designed for a young teenager and her first grownup room.
We customized the furniture in a soft grey tone, as this gal wanted simple. Matched the silk custom draperies and Roman blinds, to the soft green-blue velvet used for the headboard, stool and window seat.
The room was painted in a soft gray, with a blue-green accent wall behind the headboard. Complimentary bedding with soft accents set the scene for a beautiful relaxing bedroom she can enjoy for years to come.
Our young client was over the moon!
This was an unused area in the basement which the client wanted to create a more functional space. We turned it into an office with the addition of two built-in wine fridges.
We used two-tone laminate with a high gloss on the bottom and a traditional print on the top and side cabinets, adding interest to complete the job.
Corion counters for function, and porcelain wood like tiles over a heated a floor for comfort in a basement room, creating texture and warmth to balance out the finished look.
What People Say
I have worked with Garna on two occasions. The first was a major renovation of a 3-bedroom condo and we did everything. New kitchen and bathroom cabinets, counters, hardwood floors, furniture, linens, window coverings, paint. We started from scratch. It was wonderful to have her as my guide through the process. I loved how she would bring me to a store and already have things narrowed down for me to pick from. Her sense of colour is unbelievable. She picked colour palettes I never would have thought of and they worked brilliantly and, I still love everything. To this day, I walk through my front door and I still love looking at it and I feel great pride in it. Recently I worked with Garna on replacing the tile floors and renovating a walk-in shower and once again, it all just came together seamlessly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and I have to family and friends. Thank you, Garna!

“We relied on Garna for a major renovation of our city home and found her to be a pleasure to work with. Not only does she have an exceptional sense of colour and style but more importantly, she understood and respected our personal tastes while encouraging us to explore new possibilities. We absolutely love the results. More recently, we have returned to Creative Colour Works to finalize the decorating of our Muskoka cottage. Even though the country style we prefer there is totally opposite to our city home, Garna’s advice and recommendations have been spot on. We’ll continue to rely on her for our decorating needs at both locations.”

“I worked with Garna on a complete re-do of my 3-bedroom condo which included floors throughout, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, new counter tops, painting, and all new furniture. It was a pleasure to work with her and all her contractors, all of whom were completely professional and punctual. Garna’s sense of colour took me to completely new places in terms of decorating and a year after completion, I still love my new look. Garna was always quick to get back to me and answered all of my questions. She had great sources, and took me to places with pieces exactly to my taste and our concept, saving me a huge amount of time. I don’t have an ounce of decorating ability but Garna had the big picture and made it all happen. “

This project was to update our main floor laundry room, powder room and rear entryway. Garna has an enthusiasm and passion for her work. She listens carefully to her clients, quickly and accurately assesses and evaluates their level of risk and need for support and then provides a variety of options reflecting this.”

“My husband and I have a long-standing relationship with Creative Colour Works and it’s owner Garna Tracy. There are many things we love about Garna’s decorating style. The value added here is Garna’s passion for helping people. She understands that we don’t have her knowledge of decorating and always ensures that whatever her team does meets her high standard.”

“Garna Tracy of Creative Colour Works helped us in every way. First she suggested what should be done to our new-to-us townhouse in order to bring it up to the modern day. She then brought in all the trades we required and project managed them to bring it all in on budget. It was a complete service from start to finish and she always wore a smile. Thank you!”
