Tour A Minimalist Home That Still Packs Plenty Of Drama

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.”
