Before and After: A Toronto Home Goes Graphic

Comparing the before and after photos of this family home, you may never have dreamed the crisp, modern, and geometric rooms were previously ornate, traditional spaces that lacked personality and polish. Luckily, designer Anne Hepfer saw the space’s potential. Home to an archeologist and her young family, the three-bedroom house is located in Toronto’s historic Rosedale neighborhood. Seeking to create a modern interior that would match the home’s more historic look, the designer curated a clean and neutral space that would best display the owner’s impressive art collection.

“This project was all about the art,” Hepfer says.“Exacting professionals, they had a clear vision of choosing carefully curated pieces against a neutral landscape to highlight their collection. We evolved this basic principle by blending and layering old and new, masculine and feminine, modern and traditional, and really going for a mix of texture and finish to create a luxurious, harmonious space.” Keep scrolling to see the dramatic transformation yourself!
