Condo Renovation

This tired outdated condominium in central Toronto was long overdue for a facelift. Our client's desire was to have her permanent residence of 16 years to be completely renovated and designed so that she could take pleasure in entertaining family and friends. She was looking for a classic new style that would incorporate her existing and recently inherited furniture from her cherished Aunt into the design plan.

(Fig. 1) Our client's 70's style kitchen was in desperate need of a redesign and our Interior Decorator met the challenge!! We updated with custom cabinetry throughout, introduced under cabinet and in cabinet illumination, accented with a contrast of rich warm hardwood flooring. Quartz countertops with an under mount sink allows for ease of food preparation and clean up. A diagonal pattern backsplash styled with Tuscan inspired inserts were introduced to create interest making the space feel larger. Glassware displayed behind illuminated corner glass cabinets adds a touch of sparkle to the space and we introduced a deep cabinet above the fridge along with an expansive wine cabinet housing pull out racks to accommodate our client's large collection of her favourite wines. A showpiece to be proud of for many years to come!

(Fig. 2) We balanced out the kitchen by reinventing this cluttered corner. Our Interior Decorator designed a functional workspace for our client with custom cabinetry. This desk area is kept neat and tidy with closed storage, accommodates a laptop with an open area to process paperwork, take notes and keep writing utensils close at hand. Illumination of the workstation and upper cabinet adds a touch of sparkle complimenting the overall kitchen design. Whether task or ambient lighting is required, a simple touch controlled dimmer sensor is tucked away under the custom valance to create varied levels of lighting.

(Fig. 3) Our Interior Decorator's inspiration for this living room was a beautiful luxurious family heirloom area rug that would enhance any décor! The warm gold Tuscany hues flatter the newly installed hardwood flooring and compliment the custom draperies. In order to unify the combined living room/dining room space, we kept the colour scheme consistent throughout. Custom sofas, reupholstered chairs, along with a classic touch of clean lined traditional pieces provide an elegant sanctuary for our client's escape. Distinctive groupings of existing artwork combined with unique accessories offer a finishing touch.

(Fig. 4) To kick back, relax and have the occasional guest retreat was the ideal space our client was looking for. Our Interior Decorator used the existing artwork for our inspiration of the design and colour scheme. By introducing slightly smaller custom sofas that were comfortable for a good nights sleep we created a sense of spaciousness in the room. Repurposing the bookshelves from the living room into the Den accommodated our client's collection of books. The beautifully designed chest of drawers completes the space and is perfect for linen storage. Ambient lighting has been enhanced with the quaint Asian inspired table lamp and the exquisite classically styled ceiling fixture that our client fell in love with.

(Fig. 5) We worked wonders with this outdated bathroom by updating the cabinetry and detailing the custom overhead lighting with crown moulding. Our client was thrilled with our idea to incorporate tip outs into the cabinetry to organize and store her small items within easy access. Quartz counter tops, under mount sink and brushed nickel faucets combined with porcelain tile gives this bathroom a sense of refinement.  The soaker tub encompassed with detailed moulding and a customized quartz ledge invites our client to rejuvenate in the peaceful solitude of her luxurious surroundings.
