Style at Home
“This is both the living room and the main family hangout area, so a TV was a must,” says Karla. “The modern-style fireplace (designed by
Mika Rempel of Mika Design) meant that it could hang a little lower than it would on a more traditional mantel, and this makes for an optimal viewing height.” To counter the contemporary aspect of the space, Karla layered in a high-impact play of textures and styles, from a simple basket to woven leather chairs, stools and plush velvet armchairs. A gutsy marble coffee table is at home in the mix thanks in part to its low profile.
