Often compared to Chicago and pegged as a cleaner New York, Toronto is a vibrant melting pot of art, culture and people. Nicknamed “the six” by rapper Drake, Toronto is home to the great Canadian winter, the iconic CN Tower, an international film festival and an incredible variation of neighbourhoods that are settled just minutes from the downtown core. Often lumped in with Canadian stereotypes, Toronto is proud of its heritage, its overly nice people and its below average hockey team. This week’s location post reveals some exceptionally designed homes in Ontario’s capital city.
Interior design guru, Odette De Lucia, has a passion for sourcing textiles from all over the world. Over a span of fifteen years, Odette has developed close relationships with master carpenters and frequently uses statement floor displays in her work. Pictured in this Toronto living room, Odette paired our statement Logo carpet with velvet furnishings and ample lighting fixtures for a look that is equal parts homey and stylish.
Judith Taylor believes in color, pattern and above all blending the client’s way of living with a unique design approach to ensure a home is not only beautiful but practical. This home in the Toronto beaches neighborhood packs color, art and pattern for an energetic impact. STARK’s Synthesis Juliee rug is a standout piece in this living room. Don’t be afraid to mix colors to add character and vibrancy to a home.
Designer, Lori Morris, effortlessly mixes patterns, art and metallic touches for a dramatic interior. Butterfly lamps, gold lighting fixtures and our Antelope Cut Pile as a hallway runner forms a luxurious entrance into the grand foyer.
