Monarch Designer Sarah Holmstrom Heads West!

 The team at Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre would like to wish fellow designer Sarah Holmstrom the very best as she embarks on a new adventure with her family.

Very soon, Sarah will be leaving Ontario and heading off to Calgary, Alberta. There, she'll be spending time with her new family and helping her husband to achieve his career aspirations.

Sarah will remain in touch with her Monarch family while away, and keep our team up-to-date on differing design trends in the prairie region.

Thankfully for us, the move is a temporary one and Sarah will be back and part of the Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre design team soon.

Please join us in wishing Sarah and her family all the best in this new adventure.

Sherwin-Williams 2015 Colour of the Year: Coral Reef

Sherwin-Williams has chosen its 2015 Colour of the Year and Monarch designer Amanda Willson-Suppa agrees that this cheerful colour is the perfect way to add warmth to your home during the long, dark days of winter. 

“How nice would it be to make yourself a tea, grab your favourite book and sit in a room adorned with Coral Reef? It's warm, bright colour pairs well with white and beachy accents, giving it a comfortable, welcoming feel."

Coral Reef (SW 6606)a vivacious hue, is Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2015. Upbeat and optimistic, Coral Reef celebrates a time for renewal and is the perfect mélange of pink, orange and red that can be used to liven up any space.
Add Coral Reef to your home’s palette and watch creativity blossom. Here are some ideas on where to use Coral Reef in your home:

  • Let the color stand by itself on a single accent wall or on your front door for a pop of color.
  • Paint a piece of furniture as a great accent piece.
  • Pair Coral Reef with Cotton White (SW 7104), Black Fox (SW 7020) or other floral hues and lush greens.
  • You can relax this bold color slightly by pairing it with warm neutrals such as Sedate Gray (SW 6169) or buttery yellows like Hubbard Squash (SW 0044).
  • Driftwood, medium wood tones and metal finishes also complement its flower-garden hue.
  • For vintage quality that’s hard to beat, Coral Reef and aged matte brass make a perfect pair.

Excellent Customer Service and Innovative Cabinet Design: A Satisfied Monarch Customer Weighs in at

Kitchen Renovation

December 20th, 2014
Tom from Richmond HIll writes:

My family hired this company last year to help renovate our kitchen, including the cabinets and countertops, and I must say that they're probably one of the best companies around in this department. The design was very innovative, the quality of its products were excellent, the staff were nice and engaging, and the project was orderly and completed on time. Everything they done is worth the price. However we feel the best part about them is the customer service. Niel, the president of Monarch even personally visited our house to make sure everything fits the design and even provided helpful tips to make the finished kitchen work at its utmost potential. Last year we experienced a minor problem with the cabinet knobs, but Niel and his team immediately responded to our concern and replaced them entirely at their cost. Go with them, and you won't regret it.
