Image above: I initially didn’t want any stainless steel in my kitchen. I was bored of seeing it everywhere then I went to a catering show where I fell in love with this island called Sirus and made by Elro. They are a Swiss professional kitchen makers who fit out cruise liners, hospitals, and large catering kitchens. I loved the seamless quality of the island and the superior quality of the stainless steel. And I wouldn’t want to cook on anything but induction from now on.
When designing the showroom, Helen was inspired by the history and architectural details of the house. She also had an overriding desire to create something different from deVOL’s other spaces, introduce some new colors and be a little more daring. To achieve an English Eccentric feel, Helen chose deVOL’s Classic English furniture as the main feature. “This Georgian bespoke furniture is perfect for this type of building, large well-proportioned cupboards that have a substantial and classic elegance,” she says
There are a lot of benefits to renting. A first and last month’s rent deposit is significantly less than any conventional down payment. Repairs, renovations and anything over general upkeep aren’t on you to finance and make time for. You can make plans to move at the end of the lease without worrying about losing money if the apartment doesn’t become occupied right away. It’s a great situation for a lot of people, even in the interior design community. Renting does come with several restrictions, of course, including minimal ability to change wall colors, much less to redesign the most expensive rooms in the place. But for Autumn Hachey, wishful thinking turned into a collaboration between her and her landlord to remodel the kitchen of her Toronto apartment.
