House & Home is a prominent Canadian decorating magazine and channel, which provides a wide range of interior design ideas. Besides an online presence, they have a magazine published by Lynda Reeves.
Design is the key to a beautiful home. However, to achieve it, there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes performed by the renovator. House & Home Senior Video Producer/Stylist Reiko Caron thought it would be an interesting idea to incorporate the construction side of the renovation in the video tour entitled: “Condo Makeover: A Dated Space Is Revamped for Modern Family Life.”
In this video tour, Marino Scopelleti appeared alongside with Karin Bennett and describes the process to achieve the creative features that went into this penthouse transformation.
“Working in a condo provided some challenges. But it also provided some creative solutions.” For example, working with Karin’s ideas and plans, we extended a wall, introduced well-integrated seamless cabinetry, and provided extra lighting by adding innovative moulding to accommodate the light fixtures.
The kitchen was given a timeless look. The new flat panel cabinets were painted in Benjamin Moore’s cabbage patch, with black hardware giving it a moody touch. Contrasting the design with beautiful Cambria Hawksmoore quartz countertop and waterfall edge detail.
The high ceiling in this condo provided more storage space in all the cabinetry work.
In the family room, the wall was built out and stunning vertical white oak channel detail was installed which perfectly housed the tv, fireplace, sound bar and lovely light scones, also incorporated was a seamless flat panel light gray cabinet for storage. The crisp matte Minnesota Snow Cambria quartz hearth completed this beautiful design.
In the dining room, the homeowner Sandra wished for more seating and lighting. The condo board did not allow for a dropped ceiling to accommodate the lighting, Using some creativity in the design, decorative moulding was glued to the ceiling to hide the wiring for the new fabulous light fixture over the dining table.
The beautiful built-in banquette allows for additional seating and saves lots of space in the dining area!
In the principal bedroom, a feature wall with moulding was built, giving a 3D effect. New white oak engineered hardwood, new wall sconces and a stunning chandelier were installed. A fresh coat of Benjamin Moore’s sandy hook gray finished the room perfectly!
The bathroom was brought to life by bringing in fresh white floor-to-ceiling subway tiles,
They also renovated the two other bedrooms, making them comfortable for Sandra’s two sons.
This segment underscores the importance of good construction and building know-how to bring the design to fruition.
