Every fall, the stars descend for the Toronto International Film Festival. While much of the action takes place at theatres around Toronto, film fans know they’re sure to get their share of movie celebrity sightings in the city’s treasured Yorkville neighbourhood, with its high-end shops offering the biggest names in fashion.
The buzzy location is a big part of the appeal for condo dwellers who move there, and this Yorkville gem is no exception. Located right in the heart of Yorkville on Hazelton Avenue, the building is close to the Hazelton Hotel, Toronto’s first five-star hotel. Surrounded by classic Victorian homes, the recently built seven-storey condo retains the old facade of its Catholic school lineage. Inside, its minimalist and modern choices abound.
Gautier, a high-end furniture store in Toronto that hails from France, was brought in to furnish the empty condo. The Gautier team, including design consultant Eden Fonkatzand store managerSylvie Dulger, dressed up the condo with their stylish insight and Gautier’s quality furniture.
The 2,650 sq. ft. condo features a spacious, all-white kitchen, two bedrooms, a den, a dining room, a living room and large terrace.
In the master bedroom, a grey scheme is anchored by an upholstered bed. The second bedroom features a white lacquer headboard with vertical, architectural-shaped panels, recalling a piano, or organ. Bedroom closets were finished by Phi Design Inc., who added white lacquer inserts.
The living room flows effortlessly from the all-white kitchen, creating a serene, open-concept space. Combination shelves from Gautier’s Preface collection in the dining room provide visual interest as well as storage, while a sideboard from the same collection offers additional serving space. Gautier included two orange bookcases to complement the chairs in the dining room and add more colour to the room.
