Reception Hall Seating Area

Michael Batterbee and Barbara Nelson used rich textures and colours to accentuate the reception hall sitting area's old-world feel.

Key Elements
Vintage Furniture A carved wood shell table adds an eco-friendly element to the space.

Canadian Style The team incorporated locally designed furniture and Canadian art to keep the room "local."
