House and Cottage

A hundred years - not age: a very fashionable house

What interiors designers create for themselves? Vivid, unusual, memorable and often rather controversial. The new refuge of the creative couple from Toronto can be described by many epithets, but it's not boring to name it. Where most people see problems, the newly-made designer Vanessa Emam and her husband Rambod Nasrin saw the opportunity. The couple acquired almost a century-old house, in which only doors functioned correctly, and turned it into a modern eclectic residence with a rich palette and a bright handmade decor. The door, behind which the guest bathroom is hidden, was painted by the landlady herself. The starting point for the work were newspaper clippings and photographs, with which the designer pasted the door. After alteration, the old plastic platbandsceased to correspond to the composition and were replaced by aluminum. They, in turn, inspired the hostess to another artistic experiment - a ceiling lamp. Vanessa Emam also gave him life on her own. Our opinion The kitchen here is made in accordance with the latest trends: a monolithic black block of cabinets and a snow-white island. Everything without handles, extremely minimalistic. Please note that the bar is designed as an extension of the island. Apparently, the tabletop and sides of the island are made of Corian. It was thanks to him that it turned out to make such a thin and durable structure. The owners wanted to make the living room as much as possibleModern, but at the same time leave wooden floors and a fireplace. So, I had to replace the brickwork of the portal with concrete, and the traditional fireplace grate - with refractory glass. In order to emphasize the confusion of times, in the sofa areaplaced rather eccentric modern tables, a plastic armchair and a sofa, dating back to the distant Victorian era. Our opinion Pay attention to the floor in the living room: the boards have a width of at least 40 cm - this is now at the forefront of fashion. Moreover, the wood itself is from inexpensive varieties. Unfortunately, in our stores the floorboard made of pine and larch available to everyone is much narrower. And those who want to lay such a fashionable floor will have to choose either a board of antique origin (from old European trains, for example), or a larch board specially cut to the required size (which significantly increases its cost). upsidedevelopment.ca
