After touring the beautiful and sophisticated living room, dining room, family room and study last week, today will kick start our tour in this sensational kitchen!
Dreaming of a gourmet kitchen? Here is one stunning reference and I am taking notes:
- serving / bar area with a sophisticated backdrop (this one doubles as a wall divider to disguise the pantry)
- mega island with seating for four and plenty of spaces for small appliances and practical storage
- one large sink instead of a divided one to accommodate large pots and pans
- tile over the range hood for a built-in / seamless look (you can't even tell there is a range hood if it wasn't for the chef-envy stove!)
- elaborated ceiling moulding for an expensive custom look (art deco inspired in this case #LOVE)
Can't say enough about these glossy subway tiles with a handcrafted aesthetic. Best of all, Brian has color matched the cabinets to the tiles for one cohesive yet dynamic look!
This is one of my favourite shots of the kitchen:
Heading to the second floor and our first stop is guest room #1.
Designed for a young lady, this bedroom is fun, energetic, and elegant with a palette of ocean blue, dove grey, and pops of pink. The whimsical vibe continues into the bathroom and I am loving this dynamite wallpaper!
Here is guest room #2 and I may just be the guest who will never leave!
I love, love, LOVE the pattern / textile mix in this room. Though dressed in soothing taupes and creams, the layering of the subtle patterns and textiles added an enormous amount of visual interests + making the room feels incredibly cozy and inviting.
Also love the trick of taking the sloped walls all the way to the ceiling with a simple yet highly effective moulding / paint application. You don't even notice the slopes around the room at all!
Again the calming palette carries into the ensuite and what a serene and luxurious bathroom with small square footage.
When planned and executed effectively (down to every detail), this is how Brian makes a small bathroom living large:
- patterned wallpaper that looks like grass cloth for a high style yet practical solution (you are no longer limited to only paint in bathrooms)
- a single pattern in the shower (mini mosaic) and floor (rectangular tile) to visually expand the space
- immaculate attention to trim details and hardware choices to up the luxe factor
Before we visit the master bedroom and ensuite next week, here is a lounge area for the guests:
Whether you are in the mood for a board game with friends or just reading your favourite novels in the afternoon, this space does it all!
Want a sneak peek of the master ensuite? This is the phenomenal sight line leading to an absolutely glamorous and luxurious private retreat! See you next Monday!
