Located in the Britannia neighbourhood of Calgary, this custom residence belongs to design savvy clients who have renovated and built homes together in the past. As such, the process was a collaborative one and our biggest challenge was refining our client’s varied sense of aesthetic — we liked to call it “Mid–Century Scandinavian Palm Springs Art Deco Glam Minimalism.”
Their essentialist approach and love for uncluttered, simplistic spaces, was offset by eccentric embellishments and bold colour. Clean lines are represented in the graphic, black and blonde kitchen with matte black hardware and brass accents, speaking to Scandinavian minimalism.
Vintage touches rooted in mid–century modern design were added throughout the house, in both the architectural features and furnishings, adding warmth against the other stark finishes.
Our intentional approach resulted in a space that made for an interesting conversation-worthy home that is reflective our our client’s quirky and individual sense of aesthetic.
And, what we can only venture to call, “Palm Springs glam,” was expressed through vibrant coloured accents, art deco inspired brass fixtures, and eclectic patterned wallpaper.
Wallpaper on the headboard wall breathes life into the master bedroom.
Twin vanities create breathing room for busy mornings with the free-standing bathtub as the focal point of the space.
White herringbone marble tile on the backsplash creates a neutral canvas for the art deco scones and brass faucet. A golden starburst sputnik chandelier punctuates the walk-in closet adding to the home’s midcentury vibe.
