Moments in the Mapleview Model

 

We wanted this model home to lean a little more traditional, yet still feel warm and modern… shocking, I know! To achieve this balancing act, we scattered modern elements throughout, but stuck to a foundation of classic finishes and pieces. The Mapleview is the first bungalow we’ve ever designed in collaboration with Richcraft. It boasts ample light, plenty of open space and lots of cozy nooks.

We chose some fairly traditional pieces for the master bedroom, but really played with the layering of materials to create a more modern vibe.

Front facing natural light in an ensuite? Yes, please.

A long, lean vanity balances the transom window above, which ensures that this a beautifully lit ensuite. The oval mirrors and shaded sconces with a hint of glitz coordinate with the classic trim. Mixing styles and metals results in a look you won’t tire of anytime soon!

You cannot go wrong with a white shaker kitchen.

In the kitchen, we opted for uber classic shaker cabinetry painted white to create a neutral base for this open concept bungalow. We added warmth to the space with locally made wood cutting boards, gold hardware and splashes of colour throughout.

I have a slight obsession with these art pieces. I haven’t yet convinced Sacha that we need them (or have a place for them), but I’m still working on it! I love the softness of them and the subtle colours. They feel like a cool summer breeze feels. We wanted this office to feel like a place you’d actually look forward to working in.

Always a fan of a separate, cozy living space.

This little den hidden off the entrance is the perfect spot to curl up in front of your latest Netflix obsession or with a good book. Bonus points if a glass of wine is involved.

Botanical decals were all that was needed to elevate this simple bathroom.

This guest bathroom needed a little something extra and we are so happy with how these Urban Walls decals turned out! We think they added the perfect amount of pattern and flair without overpowering the space.

We didn’t want to go too crazy in this limited space and, so we kept it simple and are so happy with how it turned out! White oak cabinets, dreamy concrete-look countertops, AND a herringbone floor? Yes, please. We tied the laundry room millwork to the ensuite vanity by repeating the long black handles and flat door profile. I’m not one to get excited about laundry days, but I might be a little more enthusiastic if our laundry room looks like this! Maybe that will be next on the list…
