Contemporary Home, The Glebe
Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions is excited to showcase this modern, staged home located in the centre of Ottawa’s most desirable neighbourhood, the Glebe. Built by Roca Homes and designed by Barry J. Hobin & Associates Architects, this Queen Elizabeth Custom Residences unit is the perfect backdrop for our decor expert Mandy Renfrew to provide beautiful, Canadian made furniture and decor. Given the modern design of the home, Mandy wanted to complement the features and finishes of the interior with furniture that would allow potential buyers to visualize themselves living in the space.
When a potential buyer enters the home from their elevator, the luxurious features are immediately apparent. In the foyer, Mandy selected a black leather Rubina bench to match the black finishes present in the space. She then added a black and white piece of abstract fine art to place above the bench, contributing to the modern feel potential buyers experience as soon as they step into the room. Across from the leather bench is a grand, double sided fireplace separating the entrance foyer from the rest of the home.
The living room, dining room and kitchen are all connected in a fully open concept design. The rich, dark hue of the hardwood provided a foundation for elegant, contemporary furniture. Mandy wanted to connect the three spaces, while still creating subtle divisions throughout. In the living room, Mandy laid a crisp white shag rug to offer contrast from the dark floor, and form a base for the furniture. A crisp white leather Martha sofa and Milan ottoman were selected for the living space. Mandy then created contrast by including two grey fabric Martha chairs, bringing the space together and forming the perfect atmosphere for conversation by the fire while enjoying the view of the Rideau Canal.
In the dining room, Mandy selected a custom, Bristol dining table with a unique herringbone patterned wood top and a black metal base to complement the contemporary light fixture in the room. She then incorporated crisp white leather, Rosen dining chairs, matching the white sofa and ottoman in the living room, and creating cohesion in the design. Two counter height, navy fabric chairs with silver accents were perfect to add a pop of colour to the kitchen and match the blue hues found in the toss cushions on the living room sofa.
In the master suite, a beautiful grey tufted, Sacks upholstered bed was selected to help potential buyers visualize their own private oasis. In the bedroom, Mandy wanted to create a calming atmosphere and was able to do so in the selection of hues found in the furniture, art and decor. Two soft white, extra wide nightstands flank both sides of the upholstered bed, and an Inca swivel chair in a patterned fabric was added for extra flare.
Both the living room and master suite lead out to a spacious balcony looking over the Rideau Canal. Our Diva patio set with its sharp lines complement a black iron divider and overall style of the modern exterior, while providing a comfortable place for potential buyers to sit and visualize themselves in the picturesque property.
This beautiful contemporary staged home, located in the Glebe neighbourhood of Ottawa, ON, provided an incredible backdrop from Mandy and Polanco’s furniture/decor selection. The open concept design allows for a panoramic feel as you enter the luxurious home, with a clear view of Mandy’s gorgeous pieces. We look forward to speaking with you regarding your next project.
