a traditional family home

This is definitely one of our favourite projects from last year. A busy family of four with a love of cape cod design and traditional detailing was looking for a cozy refuge. Designed with family in mind, every nook and cranny was thoughtfully put to use.

The front hall with full height paneled walls and coffered ceiling is grand yet light & airy.

 

The front parlour is a perfect escape for fireside evening cocktails.

 

The dining room is directly across the hall from the parlour. Wall to wall drapes, rich velvets and the traditional chandelier lend a cozy & intimate atmosphere.

 

Shimmery damask wallpaper and a custom furniture-like vanity add a glamorous feel to the powder room.

 

Detail is everything in this home. The coffer ceiling and crown details were meticulously designed to appear grand yet not overwhelming. 

 

The cozy living room is perfect for snuggling up by the fire.

 

This jewel box of a home office is tucked into the stair landing descending to the lower level. 

 

The library at the top of the upper level stairs is set between the kids bedrooms, perfect for homework and crafts.

 

The kid's rooms are their own  private sanctuary, complete with loft & ensuite. Fun details like the daisy pattern tile detail in the daughter's bathroom add personality while remaining timeless.

 

The master bedroom with more beautiful panel work and an end of bed console with pop up television.

 

Traditional detailing continues into the master ensuite with checkerboard marble floors.

 

In the basement, the bar is perfect for social gatherings. Who needs to leave the house when you have a bar like this?

 

Adjacent to the bar is the media room, the essential unwind area with oversized seating and relaxed materials.

 

Another hidden gem - a bookcase concealing a secret playroom.
