A F T E R:

The Challenge:
To finish and furnish this 5-storey townhouse in under 4 months.
The Vision:
Each room on the upper levels would be a relaxing, luxurious, inviting retreat with its own personality.

The Process:
Inspired by the kitchen mosaic's spectrum of taupe, pink, green, and turquoise (see "Public Spaces"), we had developed several fabric/colour schemes for the client to choose from.

For the master suite, we turned to a palette of turquoise and deep taupe. Occupying the entire second floor of the townhouse, this suite is a private respite, demarcated by double entry doors painted deep turquoise. In the "lobby" outside the doors is a display gallery in its early stages. Here a school art project, given pride of place on a plexiglas dais, is elevated to fine art. Open the doors to the suite, and one is greeted by a small rotunda -- a transition space made grand with metallic damask wallpaper, papered ceiling, dark crown moulding, and bevelled mirror panels. Set within a niche is a mirrored pedestal, formerly used to support a glass tabletop in their dining room, which showcases a delicate wood bird sculpture.

The bedroom beyond is chinchilla brown, graciously appointed with silvery crystal chandelier and sconces, and shimmery silk and velvet window treatment. The choice of colours here was dictated by the client's request to reuse the custom-made draperies from their previous home. But windows and rooms here are so much grander than in the condo that -- despite our good intentions -- only the deep taupe living room panels could be adapted. Here in the master bedroom, they are topped by a simple tailored valance in muted turquoise. Custom bedding in a melange of patterns in taupe and turquoise graces an impressive four-poster king bed. The wallpaper in the rotunda was a fortuitous discovery in the same palette. Another lucky find was the pair of high double dressers that flank the bedroom fireplace: not only do they exactly fit the niches, they are also an ideal complement to the existing night tables, with perfectly matching wood species and stain. Adding to the romance in this master retreat is a tiny seating area in front of the fireplace, with the client's bergere chairs (given a facelift) and a new tufted ottoman and quirky side table set upon a subtle Tibetan silk and wool rug.
