A highlight of the Lawrence Park neighbourhood in Toronto, this home’s classic exterior stands in contrast to the renovations undertaken inside. Purchased for its location and spacious layout, the busy young family wanted a fresh palette and modern detailing inside. The retuning of this central-hall plan starts at the foyer where a custom marble inlay floor treatment establishes a graphic and sleek tone. Traditional details were pared back, allowing for a clean and curated high-end aesthetic. Organic forms like the velvet sofa and slab coffee table in the living room contrast against the formal panelling and custom limestone cast fireplace. Carefully-selected decorative pieces continue the theme of contrasts, from the champagne-toned dining room lighting, to the double-height marble fireplace surround in the family room. The kitchen was also treated to an upgrade, with new cabinet fronts, countertops, and appliances throughout. This project has been shot for a home tour with House & Home.
This charming Tudor home in the heart of Playter Estates, Toronto was treated to a full renovation, including an addition, and top to bottom decoration services. Traditional details abound, featuring an antique mantle which was reworked to suit a new gas fireplace unit with a specially designed inset tile surround. The face-frame cabinetry wraps from the foyer, through the kitchen, and ends at a custom breakfast banquette overlooking the pool. The basement den is open to the main floor via a light-filled landing with double French doors and transom, connecting the family spaces. A master suite sanctuary is nestled on the third floor, featuring a custom bed, grasscloth cocooning wall treatment, and vaulted ceiling with integrated skylights. This project has been featured in the media, is the subject of two videos on House & Home’s website, and is in the running for a Sub-Zero Wolf Best Traditional Kitchen Award.
