Tailored in Toronto

I saw the work of Katherine Newman and Peter Cebulak of the Toronto firm Katherine Newman Designs, in a magazine article a few years ago. I was very impressed by their work. They are published from time to time, but not a household name here in the US. I think they do beautiful work. Their projects have a sophisticated European sensibility. And I think they integrate architecture and interior design in an elegant and seamless way. These photos were taken by Tony Soluri and were published in several different AD articles.

These two halls seem to be inspired by the legendary English architect Edwin Lutyens. 

The large plaster cove mouldings and tons of beautiful paneling seem to be their trademark. It works for me.

The walls in the room below were upholstered in a beautiful blue fabric.

I think this is an awsome kitchen.  I love how the wainscotting in the forground is framed in a panel.  It gives the beaded board a little more elegance than usual.

I love the soft colors and the large cove mouldings;  they help to make these bedrooms super serene.
