Photo Gallery: Luxe Condo Decorating Ideas
Watery glass tiles in the shower match perfectly with the large glass vanity in this ensuite bathroom.
Deep charcoal walls draw the eye to the concrete ceiling and contrast beautifully with the crisp white slipcovered sofa and pop-art pillows. One statement piece of art, rather than a gallery wall, keeps the look simple and high-end. A white tray provides visual relief on the dark coffee table and becomes an ever-changing display space.
With expansive windows and 19′ ceilings, this loft called for generously proportioned pieces. The 5-1/2′ x 4-1/2′ chandelier, which required scaffolding to be assembled and hung, provides a dramatic focal point in the room. Classic silhouettes, like the overstuffed tufted sofa and wing chair, and a luxe palette of white, black, silver and grey create a chic contrast with the industrial elements in the loft.
With a dentist’s lamp, drafting stools, a shop table and vintage stainless steel cabinets reclaimed from a lab, this loft kitchen is unique. Half-shades allow for privacy when desired, but still let light pour in from above.
Raw brick painted airy white, tone-on-tone bedding and luxuriously full drapes wrap this Montreal bedroom in elegance. Topped by twinkling crystals, this mostly white space gets its interest from a palette of textures and dramatic gold and black accents.
Inexpensive moulding was applied on top of the drywall and painted glossy black in this open-concept kitchen, living and dining room, grounding the otherwise bright space. Concrete ceilings and hits of gold and crystal complete the mix.
Metallic trim on the kitchen drawers, oversized hardware and a gorgeous glass lamp on the island add sparkle and contrast to the dark wood cabinets and countertops in this sleek kitchen. The stainless steel range hood provides a showstopping focal point to the room, while creating visual relief from the room’s dark palette.
Custom-made Parson-style chairs are slightly lower than the average dining chair, so they can be used as extra seating in the adjacent living room. An oversized 3-1/2′ x 8-1/2′ island separates the kitchen from the dining and living areas. The display shelf running the length of the main wall keeps the look open, while hits of bright colour look crisp against a white background.
This bathroom with an open shower looks fresh and unexpected decorated with a white leather lounge chair and classic Eames walnut stool.
A faux fireplace wall flanked by built-in shelving creates a focal point in the living room. Interior designer Philip Mitchell added extensive panel mouldings, deep cornices and high baseboards throughout the space to create architectural interest. The parquet flooring was stained a dark walnut for a more sophisticated look. A mix of artwork styles and quirky treasures keeps the space from appearing too stuffy.
