With this major renovation in Cordova Bay, designers Tracey Lamoureux and Carley Fisher of interior design and décor firm Creative Spaciz wanted the feeling of a high-end hotel within a personal home. To achieve this welcoming and cultured ambience — which the designers describe as “traditional elegance with a slight hint of Tuscany” — they used timeless elements, such as the opulent light fixtures, along with sophisticated finishes, including patterned marble flooring, wide-planked dark oak hardwood and quartz countertops.
“Our clients wanted to create a much more open concept to work with their highly social lifestyle, which [to them] meant a welcoming home always full of family and friends,” Lamoureux says.
Places to entertain abound in the 6,000 square-foot home. In addition to the distinctive elegance of the dining room, there is a wine room, a bar and an enticing pool area with its own waterfall feature and fireplace.
A favourite element in the home for the designers is the walk-in closet, which was converted from an existing bedroom. Featuring custom millwork, plush wool carpeting, a quartz-topped peninsula and its own bathroom, it’s “an absolute throw-caution-to-the-wind room.”
