Welcome back, you guys! This week on the blog we continue our reveal of the stunning Rosemont Residence project to you.

Last time we showed you the living room, kitchen and nook. This week we’re back to take a peek at the entry, dining room and living room that we designed for our beautiful client, Jill Carlsen from The Upside.

We’re proud to say that this home was featured in both Avenue and Western Living Magazine!


In keeping with the punchy colours from the living room area rug, and in an effort to keep consistent, we elected to incorporate the same jewel tones throughout the main floor. We selected a rich mustard shade for the front entry rug which we punctuated with a glossy navy blue console.

The tufted wing-back bench that sits in the entry was designed by us and custom made by our friends at Red Eight.

The gorgeous entry rug from HPR Gallery is an overdyed kilim rug. It’s “pre-worn” look is perfect for the amount of traffic this busy family home endures! The finishing touch to the entryway was the lacquered tansu console from Bungalow 5.


We knew that we had to make this space in the home feel special and what screams special more than gold metallic wallpaper?! (Answer: Nothing). This stunning Designer’s Guild wallpaper was selected for its subtle geometric pattern which adds drama without overwhelming the space.

The ‘X’ detail in the pattern was a common motif in the home and inspired by the architect of the home, Suzanne Devonshire Bakerwho incorporated it into other architectural details of the home including the dining room fireplace surround.

The gorgeous emerald green Juju hat was added to the otherwise neutral space to add a pop of colour to the fireplace! Paying further homage to the emerald we chose this striking light fixture from Restoration Hardware to be hung over the rustic dining room table. It is made up of a dozen large emerald cut pieces of crystal glass and creates the most beautiful reflections of light in the space.

Jill’s love of fashion is represented in the two Cathy Daley charcoal drawings from Newzones Gallery hung on the walls of the space.


While the rest of the home is bright and airy we decided to go in a different direction with the powder room. We chose a black wallpaper from Hygge and West to create the dramatic contrast that we were going for.

 To tie the wallpaper in with the rest of the home we selected a pattern with a gold metallic print on it, similar to what is seen in the dining room. 

The vanity floats in front of a full length mirror with an elegant marble slab backsplash. To pull together the tones of the walls we selected a brass wall mounted faucet and pendant light fixture.
