Master Bathroom Retreat

This is a recent master bathroom renovation in Newmarket Ontario by Madison Taylor. The outdated traditional style was replaced with a classic but modern retreat.

Custom Vanity

The focal point is a custom vanity by Absolute Cabinets. The flat panel design and dark espresso wood are classic, yet modern with open cubbies for towel storage to add crisp contrasting whites. The chrome faucets are the Riobel Eiffel that have an elegant arched style, paired with Kohler archer undermount sinks. The full height mirror reflects light from the simple chrome sconces and adds a high-end hotel component.

Make-up Desk

A matching custom built-in make-up desk is opposite the vanity. Both pieces have white salt marble countertops from The Gallery, A Madison Taylor Collection. The existing Crema marble tile on the floor and shower walls was incorporated into the new design because it’s classic look was easy to work with. The crystallized white marble contrasts the existing veined Crema marble while together they harmoniously compliment the overall bathroom scheme.  An elegant white bench from HomeSense provides seating as well as ties in the chrome from the light fixtures, plumbing and vanity hardware.

Madison Taylor has transformed this master bathroom into a timeless retreat for the homeowners.

New Projects On The Go: Creating New Inspired Living – Interior Design Barrie

Kitchen and Living Room Renovation

Madison Taylor Design recently completed a kitchen renovation project located in the Barrie area. Our client contacted us  to help re-create a new kitchen and adult living space within their existing home. The task involved designing a new layout where they can cook for their family and entertain for their friends. The renovation entailed removing a wall, installing all new kitchen cabinetry, appliances, lighting, stone counter tops by The Gallery (A Madison Taylor Collection),  a new kitchen back splash, hardwood flooring, a fire place unit, plumbing, furniture, and accessories.


As seen here an open concept was key, in-order to create an easy flow from one room to the other. A “L” SHAPED kitchen design with a peninsula was incorporated to make the kitchen feel more open and it also allows the opportunity to cook and entertain all at the same time.  The cabinetry is custom made and painted specifically for this project and included all of the details that were required for function for the homeowner.  A few of the amenities in the kitchen were pot drawers, built-in garbage and recycling, hidden corner cabinet, built-in knife block, pull out spice rack and bread drawer.  Another neat feature that was incorporated into the space was a built-in central vac sweep, located in the peninsula. 

The colour scheme as you can see uses traditional calm colours with a contemporary twist. We have the medium orange toned hardwood flooring, cosmopolitan grey cabinetry and a lighter cream on the wall surfaces. The idea was to use a palette that combined grey, white, brown and black successfully.  We were able to bring the design together with a countertop that included all of these tones perfectly.

This unit, designed by Madison Taylor, was created for a small office space in the kitchen. Using a built in chalk and cork board, framed with half round tile to compliment the back splash in Calacatta.

Here we have designed a custom fire place built in wall unit. Using the cosmopolitan grey on the fire place mantle and darker grey with a purple hue on the above wall to unify the joining kitchen. The tile back splash surrounding the gas fire place unit is called Carrera 1″x2″ split face.


The remaining living space has been fully decorated and staged by Madison Taylor. A fresh coat of wall paint, an area rug in the centre to create a social space, with two lounge chairs,  a three seat sofa in a caramel velvet, and decorative wall art were added to complete the design.

Designing with Juxtaposition – Interior Design Barrie

Madison Taylor Design practices with juxtaposition.

Combining raw materials with contemporary lighting and plumbing fixtures will create that warm and inviting atmosphere.

The texture of the barn board and grey tones were applied to the rear wall for the focal point and then accented with the Azzure slipper tub, Elk Solace light fixture and Riobel Salome tub faucet.  Madison Taylor used feminine lines in all of the plumbing and lighting adding a touch of “flare” to the area.  A warm cream honed limestone was used on the floor surface to add the softness and warm tones.

A well balanced area with texture, shine, flare, warm and cool tones and balance.

Designing unique areas for the GTA and SImcoe County.
