3 On-Trend Design Elements of the Bonus Condo You Can Use at Home!
What’s the trendiest and most stylish new residence in Toronto? The Monde Condominium on Toronto’s waterfront! We’ve reserved an incredible 39th-floor condo for the lucky winner of the Million Dollar Bonus Prize.
Let’s look at just some of the design features that make this such a great place to live. Plus, we’ve got some tips for bringing these touches to your own home!
Wood is winning hearts, naturally
If you haven’t got the room, or the green thumb, for a living wall, don’t worry. The next best thing is using wood, and it’s part of a design trend towards more organic materials. (Plus, there’s a stunning living wall in the Monde lobby!)
You’ll find wood featured throughout the condo including the cabinetry in the washroom and the open-concept kitchen. In the bedroom, striking nightstands bring natural texture to the space to help create a relaxing vibe
In the cozy den, rest your latte on the wooden stool/side table and slide up to the beautiful desk. It’s one of the best work-from-home places we’ve ever seen! And, don’t forget that gorgeous, naturally-finished bench in the front entry or the trendy pale wood floors throughout.
Want the wood-look in your home? Declutter existing furniture to let the glorious grains shine, and add small pieces, like tables you can place where you need them, to bring natural warmth to a room. Also, think about replacing carpet with durable wood flooring, or refinishing old floors hiding under broadloom.
Mid-century Modern furniture is timeless
Some call it the trend that never dies, and we agree! There’s just no substitute for the classic lines of the 40s, 50s, and 60s.
You’ll love relaxing and entertaining in the living room - and showing off the stylish sofa and chairs. All three pieces combine unique looks with total comfort. Completing the set is the sleek and functional entertainment unit, the focal point of the room for movie nights and decompressing with a drink in one hand and the remote in the other!
You can borrow this look with just a couple of well-placed pieces - you don’t have to redecorate completely. Maybe your parents or grandparents have saved some retro items you could use? Or, hit up a thrift store for one-of-a-kind items in need of a little TLC for mid-century style on a budget.
Get positive about neutrals
Once upon a time, you only went for a neutral palette if you were selling your home. Not anymore! Soft, warm neutrals are inviting and calming, and they’re the perfect canvas for your colourful decorating ideas.
The clean white walls of the condo not only open up the space, but they also let the darker wood tones and art pieces pop! (There’s a reason so many art galleries are white.) In the bedroom, shades of grey with intriguing textures will envelop you in total relaxation. What a place to decompress at the end of the day!
A coat of paint is one of the simplest ways to transform a room, and it’s an easy DIY project you can complete over a weekend. Choose warm whites and stay away from cool shades and off-yellows. For bedrooms, a sheet and comforter set in soothing greys makes for an instant makeover.
