Hidden Fireplace

Black detailing makes for subdued elegance.

A dark fireplace, that all but disappears into the wall, creates a luxurious feeling of warmth in the principal bedroom of Matthew Kosoy and Ali Yaphe's Toronto home. The striking black accent wall in which the fireplace sits works well in the bright room, thanks to two tall windows that let in lots of natural light.

Eclectic Living Room

A cosy mix-and-match palette.

White walls perfectly offset the playful yet sophisticated mashup of colour and pattern in style editor Sarah Hartill's Toronto bungalow. Even her hardwood floors are patterned in a muted chevron that strikingly contrasts with the design on her fabulous Persian rugs.

Arched Mirror

A lesson in colour and proportion.

A large, panelled mirror makes great use of the 10-foot-tall ceilings in designer Silvana D'addazio's home, where the shape and colour of each piece of furniture is carefully considered. With its medium-toned wooden frame, the mirror perfectly matches the Egyptian chest in front of it, while the two wishbone chairs, though paler in hue, have curved backs that complement the mirror's similarly rounded edge.

Gilded Mural

A bathroom with a stunning accent wall.

Hand-painted by Peter Costello, this gold-leaf chinoiserie mural creates a tranquil atmosphere in homeowners Rick and Ariel Zhu's bathroom. For their gorgeous bathtub, the couple chose a floor-mounted brass faucet that stands in harmony with the wall's understated luxury.

Elegant Dining Room

Bold use of colour sets this space apart.

Richly detailed antiques and warm colours add plenty of old-world charm to Elizabeth and Philip Ryan's home in Westmount, Quebec. Having lived in Europe for many years, the couple brought a little bit of Paris back to Canada with them by filling their home — and this lovely dining room — with collected treasures.
