Lorie Derraugh started working in the design business at the age of 10 when her mother, Meryl Scott, a successful Ottawa designer, started her on wallpapering projects!
Her talents seem limitless as she describes the renovation process that took place in the Younghusband-designed home in the Dows Lake area that Lorie shares with husband Fred Casarramona and their teenaged daughter Olivia.
Bought for its good bones and the traditional detailing that appeals to Lorie's classically elegant style, the home needed extensive renovations. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Lorie worked alongside Fred on many of the projects.
Lorie's signature style includes a neutral colour scheme that allows for incorporating colour and trends through accessories such as faux fur, glass, stone and jewelled accent pieces.
Pillows and personality
Layering is the latest trend in dressing up space. Combining texture, size and pattern is a creative way to update a sofa.
Bowls of decor
A simple technique with high style - fill bowls and baskets with collectable balls to add punch to a table; change the look with ease each season.
