REAL HOME 101
TYPE OF HOME: Designated heritage 1930s Streamline Moderne home renovated with an open floor plan and addition of glass box second story
ARCHITECT: Edward Glass
BACKGROUND: The firms dpai architecture inc. and Toms + Mcnally Design collaborated on the renovation, giving the home’s traditional interior a modern update.
DECORATING COLOR SCHEME: Vibrant white contrasts the home’s warm wood flooring and accents throughout. The kitchen is given a striking pop of robin’s egg blue from the retro-styled appliances.
INNOVATIVE IDEA: The classic backsplash was expanded into an eye-catching robin’s egg blue feature wall that complements the appliances and unifies the open kitchen space.
