How To Create Tension Between Classic & Contemporary Style

Handsome moldings and original woodwork mingle with bold, creative furniture in this Georgian Revival home in one of Toronto’s oldest neighborhoods. To the credit of H&H 2017 Designer Of The Year Katherine Newman, these architectural features don’t end up the main focus; instead, they enhance a diverse contemporary art collection and form a refined backdrop for the home’s elegant and eclectic design. “Our approach to layering is nuanced,” she says. From striking light fixtures to polished wood panelling, see how Katherine and her business partner, Peter Cebulak, brought modern spirit to this historical home.
