Before & after of a renovated Victorian

Posted on Mon, 10 Sep 2018 by KiM

Ottawa is not known for its interior design scene. Nor do I find there is much creativity when it comes to interiors here. Henrietta Southam is breaking that mold and her style is about as eclectic as you can get. And for those reasons it was an absolute MUST that I share her Victorian home in the ‘hood of New Edinburgh that is currently on the market. It is stunning inside and out and I was so stoked to be able to include some before photos so you can really see the transformation. Henrietta’s ability to blend old with new, to maintain some traditional architectural details while adding in more modern touches, and featuring some really breathtaking antiques, makes this home one of my favourites EVER. I am taking some serious notes for all the upcoming projects in my home. Also, you must follow her on Instagram. She is talented writer to boot, and her descriptions are always a great read. Now, enough talk. Let me introduce you to the best home in Ottawa!

love the transformation!

Mims says:

SO refreshingly original! not a single belly basket, ghost chair or african juju hat in sight. Adore the rugs!

Mary Clemens says:

what is the brass “rod” shown on the bookcase toward the end of the pictures. Is it a ladder or part of the lighting?

Anke says:

Mary, that looks like a collection of speers.
