This home was entirely replanned and expanded to accommodate a growing family. Vaulted ceilings and designer lighting pieces celebrate the interior volumes of the home. They offer an element of surprise and a feeling of distinction as our built-in details respond to the interior.
The kitchen and garden were key gathering spaces for this family, and we wanted to keep them tethered. These tall custom wood doors allow the light to enter while grounding the details of the kitchen with a deep and calming hue.
When stepping inside, the home’s custom millwork kitchen offers plenty of storage, and space to display the family’s favourite cookbooks. These cabinets and the tall ceilings help offer a lightness to the room. With a hidden built-in fridge, every meal is a great reveal.
Warm leather, dark fixtures and strategic use of colours make for the perfect balance between the homeowner’s design aesthetics. This home balances its modern features and sleek profiles with an eclectic decor rationale.
The powder room in particular offers some terrific colour and texture. The walls are articulated with a dramatic display of Calcutta hex tiles. These are offset with a restored antique vanity, light fixture, and unlacquered brass fittings throughout. The shower door is a single glass pane with gold hinges. To complete the design, custom installed wall coverings splash the ceilings with — you guessed it– more gold.
The den boasts a custom cast fireplace and a built-in executive office. This features 12-foot tall custom shelves that reach up the vaulted ceiling, and fold into a custom built-in desk.
Overall, this home’s old-world feel is a space that is joyous to inhabit. Its eclectic mix of detailing was thoughtfully executed by our creating team, and installed by our talented crew. We loved bringing some extra lift back into this early century home.
