To fill this two-story Tudor-inspired addition, Casey custom designed both an intricately carved and oversized wood chest to house the fridges, as well as a wood island. Wood cabinetry and exposed beams were stained to create contrast against the cream walls. A large Tudor-style pendant fixture also works with the scale of the room and adds a touch a drama.
In her own Toronto kitchen, Casey clad the walls in a gorgeous white marble. Framing the narrow window in the same tone as the cabinetry makes it pop against the marble. Rather than floating shelves, Casey built storage into the wall to save space.
This contemporary console is topped with a few simple accessories for warmth and personality: a mod white lamp, fan of coral, and stacked design books with white spines.
In this decadent living room, Casey created one lounging area around the fireplace, and another to the left. A very Mad Men-style bar adds a glam element to the room, along with deep red drapery and oversized artwork.
Most of the office supplies behind freshly painted custom cupboards with moulding. With a wall of bookcases and storage, it was easy to leave the modern desk free of unnecessary clutter, apart from a laptop and vase of flowers. Now, the homeowner is free to focus without distraction.
To channel the quiet serenity of a library, Caseyincorporated a small desk into this wall of custom millwork. The built-in desk is framed by tall cabinets with open and closed storage. Two sconces provide extra task lighting, and the books above are easily accessible while working.
In this spacious bathroom, an inviting couch adds a touch of luxury. A deep tub overlooking the trees and heavy roman blinds also add to the spa feel of the space.
In the same home home, the decor-inspired dining room’s navy velvet banquette was inspired by one in a Parisian café and is perfect for hosting dinner parties or lounging with the Sunday paper. Built-ins provide ample storage and decorative brass-grilled doors hide radiators and unsightly wires and cables.
In Casey’s own bedroom, textured velvet wallpaper, a butterscotch silk headboard, fringed curtains and a Chinese silk brocade duvet transform the space into an embracing haven. The bowed legs of the mirror-topped bedside table provide visual breathing space.
