Contemporary Classics w/ Robyn Young

Hello Wednesday!  You know I love neutral rooms with a contemporary yet timeless appeal.  So my heart naturally skipped a beat when I saw this sophisticated yet cozy and inviting home for this young family of three featured in the August Issue of House & Home.  The homeowners worked with designer Robyn Young of Robyn Madeline Interiors to decorate their brand new home tailored to their tastes, lifestyle, furniture & art collection, and of course baby-friendly.

This stunning home has a fine balance between old and new: Robyn's winning formula to add a sense of history, character, and charm to this newly built home. The vintage chairs work beautifully with the new dining table from Ikea.  Though new, the turned leg detail echoes the super comfortable dining chairs in natural wood.

The white walls in this home allows Robyn to display the homeowners' art collection gallery style.  LOVE that abstract art above the sideboard.  Brilliant choice for a white sideboard as it virtually disappeared into the wall: functional and fab design trick.   

This living room is pretty special don't you think? Opens to the dining room, the neutral palette continues into this formal yet inviting living room.  I've always loved this bold, graphic floral and what an amazing facelift to a pair of good quality, mid-century modern treasures inherited from the homeowners' grandmother! Blue and green are the accent colours that bring this living room to life, and I certainly can't get enough of that lucite coffee table!!

This is certainly the kitchen of my dreams.  All soft white cabinets in classic style pairing with sleek brass hardware, mid-century modern pendants over the island + iconic counter stools, a hit of black with the sconces and most importantly, serene marble that runs from counter to ceiling!

The family room is right next to the kitchen and it is the perfect place to lounge and relaxed after a long day.  Accented by navy blue, this white canvas is made to showcase the beautifully crafted furniture pieces (hello Eames chair, super sharp sideboard) and the artwork.  My eyes were drawn to the artwork above the sideboard immediately.  How about you? 

The bright coral lamp is an unexpected touch and it sings with  the pink flamingo print at the corner of the room.  #Whimsy!

I LOVE this master ensuite!  The gracious freestanding tub, the details on the vanity wall (door profile, full height mirror with wall sconces, the marble counter), the drapery panels with a fun dot & cross motif, and the sensational pendant (I actually have one too!), what is not to love? I also love that the bathroom is more traditional (it almost has a country charm vibe) and how it contrasts the crisp, modern aesthetic on the main floor.

Looking for ways to add big impact in a small space? I am all for this fun wallpaper in the powder room, and again the mix of old & new (i.e. antique mirror with a contemporary vanity).

This whimsical yet calming master bedroom features Robyn's signature mix of pattern and furnishings from different eras to create character and charm.  I am crazy about that striped fabric on the armchair and hello bench!
