As the holiday season approaches, we can't help but look back on the year we're about to close. 2017 was an eventful one!
It started with Eugenia giving birth to her second daughter, Billie, in January. Shortly after, we moved Hibou into our new office space - our first official office totally dedicated to our business. It took a lot of time to make it ours; renovations and all, and we're still not quite 100% done. Although it's taken a lot of hard work and patience, our office has been home to many laughs, great vibes and an overall happy working environment. We've been able to welcome our wonderful suppliers to our office for learning opportunities and to present new collections to us. We also finally have a space to store all of our samples and grow our inventory of small accessories. Our small team of three has grown closer and more efficient and everyone who walks in can feel that we have a great dynamic!
During the course of this year, we've completed some pretty awesome projects ranging from small decor to full gut renovations. We've had the pleasure of connecting with our fantastic clients along the way, who we have not only built great relationships with but who have opened our doors to many much-appreciated referrals.
Our clients really trusted us to take risks and they allowed us to push them out of their comfort zones which produced some of our best work. It is what led us to be featured on the cover of Montreal Home magazine for our Bellay Street Project.
Our internship program was also developed this year which introduced us to some impressive upcoming talent in our field. We're so excited to see who it brings to us in 2018.
2017 started with a birth and will end with a birth since Korina is overdue and will be giving birth any day now to her second child! If we had to describe this year in one sentence, it would be the year of introductions and connections, refining our processes and building our team. It was a good year!
Follow us on Instagram! Starting on December 27, we'll be counting down our top five projects of 2017!
