“WOW FACTOR” A little sparkle is revealed when glass- walled drawers are open. T he kitchen is more than a place to prepare a meal for a growing family. This new home makes the open spacious kitchen its epi-center with all rooms feeding in and out of it. The owners of this River Heights build let their love of Scandinavian minimalist design guide their every decision. A muted colour palette, natural fi nishes and smooth clean lines come together for a handsome result. From every angle, gorgeous wood grain pops against fresh white. One indigo accent wall offers a striking contrast and a little drama. Different materials serve to defi ne different zones. Front door foyer space welcomes directly to a massive island countertop – where groceries and wine bottles can be unloaded. A beverage area, complete with a beer fridge is accessible and convenient. Shift a few feet down, and the island transforms to a bar top. On the opposite side a spacious f loor plan, ensures there are never too many cooks in the kitchen. PAINT Decorators White, Hale Navy.
