Sharon Mimran's Living Room
This spare yet elegant design features standout pieces mixed with timeless antiques.
Before the reno, visitors entered the house through this former foyer, which has been transformed into a sitting area. Since heritage restrictions prevented her from sealing the old front door, it became a spot to hang pieces of art. Here, two works (the smaller is by friend Michelle Lloyd Bermann, the larger by Canadian artist Gary Slipper) share the space with more exuberant installations, including photographer Terry Richardson's portrait of model Amber Valletta. Similarly spunky juxtapositions define the furniture, a mix of contemporary and vintage pieces. "Only two, maybe three antiques per room," Sharon advises.
