House Tour: Chic Toronto Home Inspired By NYC

Discover how Natasha Penzo, co-founder and principal of design-build firm Urban Blueprint, designed a chic, Manhattan-inspired townhome for her parents. With the help of designer James Davie, she filled the space with fashion-forward extras, like statement art, blush tones and eye-catching fabric. In the kitchen, a La Cornue range with black enamel and unlacquered brass steals the show, and an ebony-stained table and reupholstered dining chairs give the eating area a luxurious feel. The powder room’s gold leaf cabinets add a dose of opulence, as does the Farrow & Ball lotus wallpaper in the principal bedroom. Plus, step inside the master bathroom’s spa-inspired wet room.
