Complex Simplicity

At first glance, this living room appears to be quite sophisticated, yet very simple. In reality, it is not simple at all, but rather a complex variety of textures, tones, styles, and contrasts.      Located in a desirable suburban area just outside of Toronto, Ontario, this 1,600-square-foot home, built in the 1960s, has eight-foot ceilings and builder-grade finishes. The owner wanted the relatively small (12-by-16-foot) living room reimagined into something functional with a light and fresh new feel. “We had to seriously consider every design decision to completely transform this space and bring it up-to-date,” explains Elizabeth Metcalfe of Mississauga, Ontario-based Elizabeth Metcalfe Interiors & Design. “While this project appears to be simple, the process of creating this beautiful living room was much more involved.”
