West of Main collaborated with eQ Homes to develop two separate designs for Unit 16 and Unit 19 for model condos from their Greystone Village community. All the furniture and material selections were specified to create the 3D virtual tours. The client wanted both units to encompass different looks, but to appeal to their vast clientele and ensure that the condo’s layout be highlighted.
Model 16 evokes a warm atmosphere, with mid-century modern accents, while Model 19 is more Scandinavian with a light and airy feel. Although the two models demonstrate different styles, we made sure that they both offer a timeless and sophisticated environment that future homeowners can picture themselves in for a long time.
The tone for this unit was set when we selected the dark flooring and paired it with the all-white kitchen. We liked the idea of juxtaposing contrasting materials, such as the classic hardwood floor, with the not-so-classic hi-gloss cabinetry. In the bathrooms, we kept the finishings light, making the spaces feel clean and bright. These material selections gave us the perfect canvas for mid-century style furniture pieces. We mixed warm cognac leather with deep jewel tones such as navy and emerald green, and added in some light grey to neutralize. Medium wood tone pieces add warmth and tie in the darker floors. The furniture pieces have minimal ornamentation, soft curves, and clean edges but their fabric colour make them pop. Warm gold fixtures and bold colourful art tie everything together and add some personality!
For this unit, we leaned towards a more Scandinavian, casual design introducing warm beiges mixed with crisp whites. To achieve this look, we started by selecting a light wood floor and a soft off-white paint colour. We wanted to continue the light wood into the kitchen cabinets, so we decided to create a two-tone kitchen by adding high-gloss white cabinets. This breaks off the repetition of the wood, adds in a new texture and creates visual interest. To avoid the space looking too busy, we continued the marbled quartz countertop onto the backsplash, which created an elegant look. The furniture pieces are classic and comfortable, and include organic textures and light hues. The pastel colours liven up the neutral palette, and you will also see pops of darker tones throughout to add a bit of contrast. The styling and decor was done “à la Scandinave” - uncluttered and simple.
