This beautiful home was designed by Makow Associates of Toronto, completed in 2014.
Do not let the traditional exterior fool you, it is a very contemporary house inside, filled with luxurious materials and the latest in home automation technology.
We had the opportunity to work with the Toronto-based stylist Carmen Maier who styled most of the interior shots shown here. Carmen is a dedicated stylist with an eye for details and her expertise was instrumental in bringing out the soul of the house in the photography.
The centerpiece of the house, the foyer is a beautiful double-height space lit from above that ties the whole house together and contributes to not making it feel so large as it has a direct connection to all the living spaces on the first and second floors.
It is flanked by an open staircase that makes the transition from first to second floor and enjoyable experience as the views are constantly changing as one goes up the stairs.
The result is a very large home that does not feel overwhelming but rather homely and inviting, in part due to the abundance of natural light and lightly colored materials.
We certainly enjoyed shooting this house and are hoping to do more of these in the future.
