Arts and Crafts
Bringing in the light and art!
Les Ensembliers used graphic pattern and pops of colors to create a veritable gallery space in this arts and crafts 4500-square-foot residence in Westmount.
The vibrant punctuation marks, graphic patterns boasting global flair,
and judicious layering provided a result that does not come across as overworked.
"It had everything you want to find in a house, and once it was opened-up, we knew it would work."
The house achieves the right balance of striking and sumptuous. This is certainly clear for the kitchen where Les Ensembliers used
bistro signatures to establish a look that felt familiar and yet entirely original. The kitchen backsplash reasserts pattern without overdoing Moorish motif.
"It echoes like an art piece because the rest of the kitchen is in Carrara marble."
"In the past, I would go really neutral... but I feel like I have grown into my colours. I wouldn't feel scared to layer any colours together today."
