Project Manotick Sunroom
Highlights include: (sunroom, dining area, reading nook)
The overlapping of natural textures plays a vital role in the composition of this space. Unique open areas are connected with refined earthy materials and West of Main was able to curate collectables from the owner's travels and add them throughout the design. The existing stone walls which enclose the room are offset with several large, bay windows. The main windows open to a scenic view of lush trees and are framed with a rich wood casing. In order to accent the natural essence of this space, West of Main selected a porcelain hexagon tile that mimics the look of old world terracotta flooring. The natural warm characteristic of terracotta adds an aged flavour to the room, without competing with the stone walls.
The bold and vibrant dining table is a unique feature of this sunroom; thus it was important to choose finishes that did not overpower this central piece. The large windows allow natural light to flood the space. The ombre wooden side and coffee table synthesises with the floor when the clear daylight enters. Lastly, the client requested a cozy reading space. A chair and a half were placed adjacent to a corner window. Low leather side chairs sit across from the chair creating a space that is intimate, inviting, and perfect for enjoying a book or having an intimate conversation.
