Kelly Harvey Living have been shortlisted for Luxury Residence – Canada Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2020.
Looking to show the upscale town of Kleinburg that city style could work in a 6,400sqft suburban mansion, the developer sought out Kelly Harvey Living to design their model home. This 4 floor home is proof that thoughtful design is timeless. The fresh white walls, architectural wall panels with inset mirrors, modern fireplace and sleek finishes added a level of sophistication not yet seen in the area; elevated by Kelly Harvey Living custom made furniture. The levelled home with loft and basement entertaining area was designed to fit an upscale, inviting look that showcased the upgrades that buyers could purchase, and has won many awards in the local building industry association.
Using neutral tones was a reliable way of Kelly Harvey Living to ensure that the style would suit all potential buyers, and the custom items throughout the house are inspiring. The style is polite, not overbearing and therefore makes it visually appealing to the masses. The home was specifically designed to appeal to all tastes using neutral colours, and combining beauty with comfort to reflect the polite and neutral culture of Canada, which makes their design style very pleasing. Clean, classic, light, crisp and inviting.
The transitional furniture with whimsical lights juxtaposes beautifully with the crisp white wall panelling. This panelling with its inset mirrors became one of Kelly’s favourite aspects of the house, along with the custom iron railings, the custom walk-in closet, the family room fireplace with mirrors flanking the sides and the kitchen backsplash. The unique backsplash is a chrome mirror finish in a traditional subway tile pattern, and is a nod to the neo-classical design theme of the house.
The primary ensuite uniquely opens to the walk-in closet which is clad in a floor to ceiling custom macassar and mirror custom built-in design, and has a retail feel fit to showcase the homeowners clothing with plenty of room for their accessories. White marble floors climb up the ensuite walls in a brick pattern, while an interesting centre stripe of grey marble visually connects a free standing soaker tub and make-up station. Full height drapes on the marble wall add the perfect back drop to the spacious bathroom and tub.
Below the main floor is the basement area, which becomes a utopia for leisure, featuring a unique suspended cable wine cellar, cosy movie theatre, gym area, and recreation room for entertaining. The higher level of the home services a home library and a perfect study area, as well as an additional guest bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
