Tailored and bright

One of my favourite displays at the recent Interior Design Show in Toronto this year was undoubtedly Mazen Studio's tailored bachelor pad (see photos of the space here). While it was filled with art and layered with interesting details, it still felt crisp, tailored and meticulously edited. I was delighted, although unsurprised, to find that his Leslieville, Toronto townhouse carried this same feeling. While the lines are still crisp and tailored, there's a wonderful infusion of energy through the pops of bright colour used in art, books, textiles and some of the best statement making curtains I've seen. Perhaps it's the Spring but lately I've been craving more colour in my life. Like the bright William Sonoma bedding in the previous post, I've been thinking back to these curtains constantly - something seems to be telling me at the moment that bright, colourful stripes are the way to go. Icy blue accented with bright red and navy - I don't think I would have thought of this combination but clearly it works just beautifully. I love how he's hung them extra high to really add some drama and emphasize the high ceilings. This space has the perfect balance of neutrals and bright colour; crisp, tailored details and approachable comfort.
