HCMD Design in House & Home’s Best Laundry Rooms Guide

House & Home Magazine has featured one of our favourite designs in it’s Best Laundry Rooms: A Special Design Guide. This townhouse was originally featured on the magazine’s March 2012 front cover. The laundry room, beautifully designed by Halina, is now the focus and we are thrilled House & Home magazine has chosen it as one of their favourites for 2013.

YDF Designed Victorian sells for 100k over asking

They’re selling like hot cakes!  Well, two of them anyway…..  

The second YDF designed project to hit the market this week is in Lytton Park, Toronto.  Listed on Tuesday and sold Wednesday for 100k over asking, at just under 2 million!

This 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom Victorian century old home, received a modern facelift from our team.  YDF designed and Mattuu Building Specialist (Matt Creelman) renovated, we updated the kitchen, bathroom and sunroom in a classic contemporary style as well as freshened the entire house with paint and drapery.

The main floor sunroom received custom wainscoting, and bead board ceilings, all new windows and a bright new colour scheme.

The custom kitchen in a cream shaker panel was accented by the polished black granite counters, mosaic marble backsplash and black slate floors in a more modern 12×24 size.

I reconfigured the master bath, adding a double size marble shower c/w bench, two rain heads and separate hand-held.  The wall-mounted floating vanity with vessel sinks and marble top modernized the space, while its recessed door style maintained a distinctly classic tone.  The black slate floors were continued here, over new radiant heating below.  A water fed, wall-mounted towel warmer, doubles as the room’s secondary heat supply.
