(Continued . . .)

For the rest of the main floor we turned to a colour scheme of creams and greens. The living room -- now that the dining area has been shifted to the back of the house -- is large enough to accommodate 2 seating areas. Sofas in both groupings are simple and tailored and covered in velvety cream fabrics that melt into walls painted a slightly darker shade. The more formal seating area near the foyer is completed by a pair of high-backed armless chairs, covered in a graphic chartreuse fabric. Accompanying the more casual sectional nearer the kitchen is a pair of stools, upholstered in damask in another shade of yellow-green. Drapery is comprised of silk panels in a juxtaposition of cream and yet another green. Under each seating area is a finely knotted Persian rug. After searching through stacks of carpets, these were serendipitous finds -- their complementary patterns improbably an almost exact match for the chartreuse of the armchairs. The adjoining columned foyer also features chartreuse on walls and ceiling.

Many of the furnishings in this space were selected for their gleam and glitter. Tables are finished in high gloss lacquer and silver-leaf. An Art Deco style console table, topped by a starburst mirror and pair of capiz shell and silver lamps, creates a glamorous focal point that bridges the two seating areas. Above the coffee table in each grouping hangs a chandelier with a crystal-embellished drum shade. The powder room was treated to luxe finishes as well, with crystal wall sconces and hand-made wallpaper with metallic details.

The client's personality is evident through the display of favourite pieces from the couple's collection of original Canadian art. A refinished heirloom curio, inherited from her grandmother, houses a variety of decorative accessories that she has collected. Sofa pillows change seasonally, with bright pink and spring greens and yellows giving way to the colours of fall.

The main floor of this elegant townhouse easily accommodates events from dinner parties for 6 to cocktail parties for 60, allowing the guests to sparkle and the hosts to shine.
