The brief was to renovate a 3000 square foot penthouse in one of the tallest residential buildings in Canada. The unit is on the 76th floor. Having just purchased her first multi-million dollar home, Studio P Interiors gave the client a residence with modern and chic furnishings, finishes and fixtures throughout. The layout of the penthouse was very spacious, but with basic finishes the client wanted more from this space, and so brought Studio P Interiors in to perform a full renovation of the home.

Grateful to have creative freedom on this project, Studio P Interiors designed a space that was chic and contemporary through custom ceiling mouldings, wall panelling, custom storage solutions, and contemporary furnishings and art throughout the interior. The marble faced fireplace was the living room focal point, running the tiles vertically to draw the eyes upwards. The designers chose to introduce pattern and texture through a variety of abstract wall-coverings. The design works well because of how each of the materials, fixtures and furnishings complement each other, in combination with the spacious layout. Every space in this home has a purpose and it’s own design moment. The custom kitchen has been designed with bold contrasting tones, the dream walk-in-closet has been elevated with brass accents, back-lit shelves, and glass enclosed shoe shelves, and a sleek floor to ceiling bar unit that incorporates metallic finishes with multiple storage components was designed to be perfect for entertaining.

Phase 2 of the renovation focused on the ensuite bathroom, several custom built-ins throughout the home, finishing off a guest bedroom and a playful home office. For the ensuite, Studio P Interiors renovated the shower and incorporated a freestanding stone bench and niche. The designers also created a custom make up vanity with a unique linear pattern and plenty of drawer storage, complemented by the blush ombré drapes to finish off the ensuite space. Custom double doors and trim were installed and finished in a soft pink to open onto the walk-in-closet. Studio P Interiors chose to go bold for the office space, with a large-scale gallery wall wrapping two walls, a stone face fireplace, custom swivel armchairs in a terrazzo print fabric, and a full height storage unit with slab doors; a luxurious yet functional space with an upscale femininity, perfect for the successful bachelorette client.

The custom built-ins (bar unit, vanity, closet, media unit) became the designer’s favourite aspect of the project, as they add functionality and value to the home, but also are very interesting and unique to the space. A lot goes into designing these bespoke pieces, and Studio P Interiors were able to experiment with layering different materials, textures, and colours. The custom ceiling mouldings also added interest to the varying ceiling heights with a largescale pattern of hexagon and diamond shapes through painted mouldings.
