Interior Design Trend: Carpet Tile

Carpet tiles are not just for commercial spaces anymore.

Madison Taylor Design has been incorporating carpet tiles into several current residential projects in Barrie and Bolton. Area rugs can have a bold impact on the space as well as provide comfort and warmth. A budget friendly way to get the same benefits is to layout carpet tiles to form an area rug. We love these ones from FLOR.com.

Basement Bar Lighting – Interior design

Madison Taylor Design, based in Barrie, recently completed a custom basement bar. The cabinetry is a dark wood and adjacent to the bar is a textured stacked stone wall. To make this area unique, we used a glass ball pendant from Glass Lighting Gallery, Barrie. The airy glass pendant adds sparkle and elegance to an otherwise masculin space. It also reflects beautifully on the low ceiling.

Kitchen Renovation on the go -Interior Design Barrie

Madison Taylor Design Kitchen Renovation

Madison Taylor is currently working on a kitchen renovation with a traditional colour scheme and luxurious modern finishes. The granite countertops are from The Gallery in Barrie, A Madison Taylor Collection. The intricate cream coloured custom hood is made by Absolute Cabinets. The backsplash is 2×4 crema marfil tile with a mixed beige bamboo pattern mosaic above the stove framed with crema marfil pencil round, all from Saltillo Tile. This backsplash concept incorporates a detailed mosaic tile in a small quantity as a feature to give the kitchen a simple elegant design.

Design Trend: Copper Sinks

This small powder room designed by Madison Taylor incorporates unique rustic fixtures with bold colours to create an elegant modern space.

The focal point of this room is the beautiful copper vessel sink with mosaic sides from Kindred. The faucet is the Riobel Altitude, single whole, in oil rubbed bronze and the toilet is from Kohler.  The freestanding furniture style vanity is made by Absolute Cabinets and painted in a bold contrasting turqoise. The horizontally mounted vanity light is the Grand Edison Caged Sconce from Restoration Hardware.

The walls are covered with Benjamin Moore, CSP-1095 Fire Glow which gives the room a warm glow. The feature vanity wall is tiled floor to ceiling with 4″ x 24″ Calacatta tile from Saltillo Tile. This was from a unique batch that contains more rust colour veining than usual which perfectly ties in the warm wall colour with cool tones from the vanity.

Crafty Trend: Incorporating Family Photos Into Abstract Wall Art

 

Sourced Inspirational Photo: Above

At Madison Taylor Design, Barrie, we create rooms that are designed with a contemporary touch made to fit each client’s needs. We have recently created fashion forward wall art in one of our client’s home. Simply, by incorporating family photos in an abstract way on the living room wall. This look can be achieved by using complementary frames in different sizes with the same colour scheme, and printing the photos in black and white or sepia. This helps keep the wall art unified, without over whelming the space. Arranging the frames in a abstract pattern makes for a unique piece of wall art that has a personal touch for any room in your home.

Stay tuned for our up coming photos in our portfolio for more details and design ideas. www.madisontaylordesign.com
