We were brought in to the project at the outset, so were able to work with the architect to create a unified design throughout this 6,000 square foot (560 square metre) home. We fine-tuned the interior planning for the 4-bedroom and 7-bathroom 3-level residence and monitored construction from the ground up.

We created highly functional and highly forgiving finishes, essential for a family with two kids and two large dogs. We designed the doors, floors and millwork and all elements of the interior architecture.

The bathrooms had to be designed to withstand the energy of parties, kids and paws. Each of the seven bathrooms has a cohesive feel, with elements such as pale, large-format porcelain or limestone floor tiles. Custom-made cabinetry, Italian bathroom accessories and recessed towel racks contribute to that unified feel. Glass tile adds a variety of light and shadow to each room. Even the dogs were considered. We incorporated a doggie shower off the mudroom, so when the pets come in from their daily walks, they leave the outdoors outdoors.

In the interconnecting staircase, custom concrete treads are suspended off a powder-coated steel structure. We chose walnut and blue stone contrast with smooth plaster and large-format porcelain flooring in the principal living room. Wear-tested upholstery and waterproof leather complete the bespoke soft seating, perfect for a growing family with active dogs.

This Deep Cove waterfront property has large terraces, so we furnished all the outdoor spaces. We used the same family of furniture and rugs throughout these expansive areas, to allow for easy configuration while entertaining or for changing needs. A neutral palette was selected for all furnishings, which integrates beautifully with the exterior finishings and the outlook. An ancient cedar dining table and benches were commissioned specifically for this project.

The result is a property that flows, with a true sense of seamless, indoor/outdoor living.
