“Blue”. That was the client’s buzzword when TJDesign was given the design directive for this large family home in North Toronto. The expansive eat-in kitchen was fully renovated, reflecting the clients’ more traditional tastes, with fresh white Shaker cabinetry and a custom range hood set off by hand made ceramic backsplash tile in a watery blue. The adjoining formal living and dining rooms come together in complementary shades of blues and greys, creating spaces that feel cohesive and calming. Custom furniture pieces, together with unusual accessories and bold artwork, result in rooms that welcome relaxation and conversation.
