Relative Space Studios creates beautiful, functional spaces that transform how people live and engage their interior environments.










A relaxing master suite getaway!


This couple wanted to transform their master suite to a contemporary yet relaxing and luxurious escape from the hustle of modern commute living. A soothing color palette, materials with an organic yet clean aesthetic and touches of luxury with a heated floor, multi-function shower and custom millwork help to meet the design intent. 



Chic vintage inspired sitting room.


Starting with a chic and neutral color palette inspired by the Client's artwork the room is completed by curating a mix of new and antique furniture pieces and accessories to modernize the space whilst keeping with the apartment’s vintage sensibilities.



Light and bright 


A low ceiling created by existing soffits was making the space feel closed in and smaller than it was. Cleaning up the ceiling lines to only include the structural beam, bringing the kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling and creating a stepped ceiling detail resulted in a space that feels open, fresh and chic.


Prairie Style Expansion





A rustic cabin in the woods goes modern.


The beautiful rural setting and simple, classic lines of the A-frame building lent itself to modernization while keeping the roots of the family history in place. Opening the kitchen up to the living area is not only brings in the natural light and elements but provides the perfect place for the family to gather. Modern finishes and clean lines were chosen to pair with the existing rustic wood elements to create balance and warmth.


A historic interior gets a signature look.


Rumors are the Manor House was built to be the English Consulate’s residence at the beginning of the 20th century. The clients wanted to respect and maintain the historical integrity of the building while adding their own contemporary eclectic aesthetic and meeting their modern living needs. The main living area, which used to be the Manor’s ballroom, was visually divided to provide a private den area while maintaining the space’s grandeur. The kitchen space was reconfigured to maximize counter space and storage. The downstairs level was converted to a master suite with walk-in closet and luxurious master bathroom. Materials were locally sourced. An eclectic mix of furniture and fittings were selected to reflect the client’s diverse style.
