Beige. Truly, there is no better way to describe our #MountPleasant project’s “before” scenery. It was as beige as you can get – no colour, no life, no personality.
The irony in all that is our client’s are full of character. They’re unquestionably witty mixed with a little kooky and topped off with lots of sassy. The problem with this mix is that their home – a 1200 sq/ft luxury Toronto condo did not reflect who they were nor did it showcase their lifestyle. Needless to say, this all changed when we walked in turned their condo around (literally and figuratively).
Naturally, my first instinct is to get a sense of how the homeowners use the space and then we pull out their personal character traits in order to solidify a preliminary design plan. Understanding the way a client uses their home is equally as important as how “pretty” it all looks. Luckily – these were the parents of one of our incredible past clients and they had seen what we had created over at #King and said – THAT, we want that. And although I never re-create the same thing twice I did use King’s project as a platform and design inspiration but with a whole new colour palette. We also stepped it up a notch and sourced some incredible vintage finds…… VOILA
