Love That House: 93 Dunvegan Road

This house is yet another sign of the ever-rising Toronto detached housing market, especially in a prestigious neighbourhood like Forest Hill where inventory is scarce. The same house that was sold at $3.85 million, with tons of upgrades and renos later, is now listed at $6.2 million. And the key selling feature doesn't just stop at having Edward Rogers and Galen Weston as your next-door neighbours.

The unusual charcoal/dark window frames and red bricks combination gives the house a stately yet modern feel.

Always love a built-in and I need to find out which paint color was used.

This dining room looks very "Sarah Richardson": tasteful artwork on the wall, modern and sparkly yet not overwhelming chandelier, dining set in different wood tones, and a neutral area rug to anchor the space.

I believe Sarah used the same Linea marble tiles but in blanc in the foyer of her suburban "Sarah's House". It would seem that Robert Abbey's Bling Chandelier is super popular these days in a bathroom. Need I remind you that I used the same one in our Master Ensuite?

The home owner/designer is truly genius: they've made such a small room into a stylish conversation nook.

I hope you like Lou Reed, otherwise you’ll probably want to paint over that mural in the billiards room.
