Based in Toronto, Marlie Waks transforms her condo into a chic and feminine space with the help of her sister Jessica who is the design editor of Style At Home. The design scheme is an eclectic mix of shabby chic and minimalist white rooms which are punctuated with bright pops of colour that reflects Marlie’s vivacious and magnetic personality perfectly.
In this living room, a set of Chanel prints (bought on Ebay) lend a classic and timeless touch to this space. While colourful custom printed throw pillows add visual interest and infuse the room with warmth.
In the home office, a bold floral wallpaper makes a striking feature wall. White furniture and accent pieces lend contrast as well as helps to maintain balance within the space. By opting for furniture in simple lines a clean organized look is achieved. A jeweled fuschia rug underfoot grounds the overall scheme.
Patterned vases in juicy colours add a dash of personality to the design scheme.
Even the books (which were given as housewarming gifts) and shelf accessories reinforce the colour scheme.
In the dining room, the scheme is kept neutral so that the Louis XVI-style chairs are the focal point of the space. A crystal chandelier adds a glamourous touch.
Signature decor pieces like this Flamingo add a personal touch to the design scheme.
In the bedroom, large pieces are kept neutral creating an airy feel while allowing bright accents to shine resulting in a space that’s looks really colourful.
