Sabrina Smelko on How to Achieve the Perfect Design Balance (360-video Tour)

The design for Jenn and Phil’s space hinged on balance: balancing the dramatic, high-contrast backsplash with a quieter, low-profile quartz hood vent; balancing hard materials such as light fixtures with soft textiles: balancing old character with modern clean lines; and, my personal favourite, balancing dark and light, from the cabinets to the light herringbone, white oak floors. Layout-wise, our homeowners inspired our decision to maintain an open-concept floor plan. Creating a larger kitchen/dining space at the front of the home was important for them as entertainers, and moving the lounge to the back allowed for better indoor-outdoor flow. And just like our homeowners, we infused plenty of drama and edginess.
