New Home Renovation and Decor

Jacqueline Chiarot, a local residential designer, has a passion for all things home which drives her inspiration to create bright, beautiful and timeless spaces that are grounded with modern accents. She also prides herself on creating functional and livable spaces that emit the feeling of home.

When Jacqueline and her husband had the opportunity to build their own home she jumped at the opportunity to design it. They knew they wanted an open concept space on the main floor.  When you walk in, you have a beautiful view of the living room which looks out onto greenspace through the two story windows. To the left is the stunning kitchen with floor to ceiling white cabinetry. She wanted a bright and classic space grounded with modern accents which she achieved through the traditional detailed cabinetry, beautiful natural stone countertops, marble backsplash, a dark island base and the porcelain tile floors sourced from Italy. The stunning wine cabinet was built by Mantels Plus which displays wine bottles up the middle and stores multiple along the sides.

Jacqueline designed custom velvet curtain panels, made by  Luisa’s Drapery, for her bright and airy living room to bring warmth and a feeling of home. The chocolate brown hardwood floors create a cozy atmosphere in the traditional-modern home. Following the values behind her design firm, she knew things needed to be functional yet still timeless. The couple recently renovated their basement, using RPM Construction to manage the renovation. They ensured the details of Jacqueline’s design were carried out. She used Mantels Plus again to build and install the stunning gray built-in unit. The perfect shade of gray and styled book shelves create a beautiful feature wall in the basement. The space is brought together by the light, chevron flooring Jacqueline sourced from Decortile. As soon as she saw it, she knew it was the perfect addition to their home. Through these carefully designed details, she was able to create abright yet cozy space for the basement which the couple is very happy with.

My priority as a designer is to create a beautiful yet functional space where you will feel most at home. At Jacqueline Chiarot Design, my goal is to create a space where you will feel inspired.

Jacqueline Chiarot, Owner

Jacqueline grew up in the world of construction with her Grandfather and Father being builders which is where she believes her natural knack and interest in the world of design came from. Jacqueline and her husband lived in all different sized homes across Canada over 11 years which taught her a lot about working within your space and functionality within a home, especially with the addition of their toddler. Through all of their moves she also learned the importance of the “feeling of home.” She took all these important values and integrated them into her interior designs and decorating.

When designing her daughter’s nursery, Jacqueline was inspired by floral wallpaper she spotted while pregnant. She wanted a beautiful space for her daughter to wake up to every morning and to start her day feeling loved.  

When designing her mudroom she knew she wanted the room to be cohesive with the bright and classic look of their home as well as feel welcoming on entering. She achieved this through the custom designed built-ins, wallpaper, her light fixture choice as well as paint and décor. Since she is always incorporating functionality into her designs, she went for no bench cushions to set groceries on and a specific bench height so their beloved golden retriever could comfortably eat her meals from her dishes below.
