Toronto is one of the most multicultural city in the world with over 50 % of its population born outside of Canada. The result is a very vibrant creative community.
This project perfectly reflects that : Maria Lebeault , the lead interior decorator at elegant living spaces was born in Brazil, moved to Europe where she had a successful career in luxury fashion before moving to Toronto. Her customers are a couple of Indian expats who have travelled around the world before also settling down in Toronto.
They bought a magnificent condo overlooking lake Ontario and the CN tower. They have extremely good taste in modern furniture but needed help in terms of choosing which kind to match with which and how and where. They also wanted to marry some ancient furnitures and paintings that were very dear to them with the new furniture.
That is where Maria started to get involved . A lot of time was spent in discussion with the couple trying to understand their taste , their living habits and their expectations.
Then started a lot of visits to selected furniture stores , where further discussions took place before agreeing on what pieces to order.
The couple also had some very old paintings that were in poor conditions for some of them. These paintings met a lot to the couple as they had been painted by one of their aunt who painted to make a living and to support the husband studies . These were restored by some very good artists that Maria knows and in agreement with the customers.
Next to the living room was an area with an existing hi-tech sound system for these music lovers that was integrated in a jazzy bar corner.
Results in the following pictures. The condo interior decoration is a success. Customer super happy that Maria managed to marry the modern and the traditional in a very beautiful way
