My initial thoughts for the design of this boutique building was to go English Country. It is a beautiful property in a quiet area of Toronto that has the elegance and charm from the outside - lush gardens and well manicured lawns - but it desperately needed some help on the inside.

With dated and lack lustre finishes my jumping off point was the fanciful wallpaper that has the design of a residential paper, but not often found in a commercial vinyl. Then we laboriously worked on enhancing the unique oval corridors with a custom designed signature carpet. Manufactured in Denmark by Ege, we anxiously awaited its arrival over a few months, and was absolutely overjoyed with the results. The carpet is divine, couture and so beautiful that you're afraid to walk on it.

We also added wainscoting, crown moldings, created custom cast bronze suite signage and every door was changed out to house beautiful polished gold hardware.

The corridors are now an elegant welcome as you step out of the elevators. I love the transformation with this project!...and the residents are all over the moon with it as well!
