Toronto Designer Jackie Di Cara Uses Black, White And Wood Tones To Create Graphic Impact

Less is more. That was the guiding mantra for Jackie Di Cara in her redesign of this 1,600-square-foot Rosedale home. Balanced by white oak, the black and white palette was the right choice for Jackie’s client, a busy professional working in the courts who needed a serene retreat to come home to, and a space for entertaining family on the weekends.

This graphic yet warm look is also indicative of a wider shift in design. “In Toronto, there’s been a move toward cleaner, more contemporary interiors,” says Jackie. “Our home has become our oasis; we want an uncluttered environment that brings a sense of calm and order. And our spaces need to function for both working and living.”
