Big on Style

I had to post this two-storey 1,100 square foot townhouse as it has flawless flow and appears larger than the square footage implies. The designer, Kelly Deck, wanted to create a luxe, elegant and ever so slightly french feeling.

For the foundation of her goal, she used a soft dove grey on all the walls and then varied the shade to aid in the flow of the rooms. The kitchen cabinets were done in a flannel grey to enhance the french feeling of the space. I love the warmth and coziness of this room

The use of wainscotting throughout the space also gives it a classic feel and adds the necessary detailing to a standard townhouse. I love how she used a X-panel to modernize the built-ins in the living room. It adds an unexpected and modern touch, yet still blends with the rest of the house.

Kelly used clean, slightly modern silhouettes to furnish the space. The most unifying element is that she stayed with a single color palette and then used pops of colors in flowers and pillows. Even the drapes are a tonal variation of the sofa and chairs. Since it's a living room - dining room combo she chose a low-backed sofa to define the two spaces but still unify the room as a whole.

Well done. This space is beautiful and functional.

Wonderful flannel-grey kitchen. Great use of space with cabinets to the ceiling and built-in wine rack. This is a great idea when you have a small space left due to cabinet layout. The white quartz countertop is a great balance to the grey cabinets and helps lighten up the space.

Love the use of a mirrored coffee table to add some light and reflection to the room.

The living room conveys elegant french style at its best.

Love the use of doilies for art on this entry wall. (And I don't like doilies) It's so graphic yet simple.
