The studio entrance and foyer
This past summer I wrote about these stairs in a post on a wooden yardstick project, and then I received a follow-up email today from Kyla and Amber of Inoui Design who designed those stairs for their office, and just finished the design and renovation of their studio space which is a 450 square foot suite in a heritage building in Victoria's Fernwood Village neighbourhood here on the west coast. We're honoured they sent along a few pictures to share. Kyla explains, "It's a clean modern office with some great detailing using found objects, DIY installations and bright pops of colour. The studio also features custom millwork and furniture pieces, such as our sample library storage with a reclaimed rolling ladder (purchased after we had the space photographed) and our meeting table made from a single beam salvaged from a cannery in Port Alice. Although the office is modest in size we have really used the space well, building on the amazing bones."

Custom shelving for their sample library (this was taken before they found their full-height ladder at an antique shop - as you can see, it comes in handy!)

Visit their facebook page to see more including before pictures (like these chairs - below they reupholstered). And if you have time, be sure to check out their work at their site, inouidesign.ca; I'm loving one of the kitchens they have featured there (the size and layout of it is exactly like our kitchen we are currently renovating in our townhouse)! Thanks Kyla and Amber!
