Let’s take a trip to Canada today and visit a modern traditional Toronto home by rtg designs. When you think of modern style meeting traditional elements – you come up with “transitional” design. Today’s tour pulls it off beautifully!
An exposed brick wall (above) adds warmth to the home’s entry hall. The French door allows sunlight to pass into the hall when it’s closed.
The tiled floor in the front alcove makes muddy footprints easy to clean. You’ll often find a double door situation like this in northern climates. It provides extra protection against wintry winds. I love big glass in a front door. Although some people may find it provides little privacy, I like to see who’s on the other side before opening the door. This particular door has a shutter that can be pulled down for privacy or to keep strong sunlight out.
A cozy fireplace with marble surround warms the mostly white living room. And how adorable is the sheep painting? I can never pass up sheep – whether it’s a knick knack or piece of wall art.
The bookcases are decorated with vignettes of peaceful blue and green and hints of gold.
Step inside the kitchen of today’s modern traditional home tour and you’ll find rich, navy blue cabinetry with brushed gold hardware. The pairing of navy with gold is a rising trend in today’s kitchens.
What modern home would be complete without a pot filler over the stove? You see these a lot on HGTV shows.
The Toronto home comes complete with endearing nooks and crannies, too. It’s nice to see a bit of exposed brick in this corner.
An all-white bathroom has a softly patterned floor with a wonderful walk-in shower. Some day I’m going to have a shower like this.
An elegant, white claw foot tub takes center stage in a subway-tiled bathroom with a soft Roman shade at the window. You can let the shade down for privacy when bathing in the evening. I’m also a huge fan of the paneled door leading to the bathroom. Erin on Home Town recently showed how to create the look using a $25 hollow door. Did you see that episode?
