MECHANICSVILLE MODERN

This bright one bedroom condo has a good foundation for vintage and modern furniture. The south facing windows that overlook Scott St let in loads of light, making it a wonderful stage for our vintage pieces. With newer birch laminate floors and a matching colour scheme in the kitchen, we went with some darker wood tones on the big furniture pieces and an earthy colour scheme for the main living and dining area. The bedroom was already painted a fresh minty green so we put a simple modern bed which matched the overall colour scheme of the unit. 

Two months before this condo was meant to be on the market, I started a full space refresh to get it looking its best. I had already done a major renovation replacing the flooring and kitchen but the bathroom was still in its original state. Previous owners had installed new tile floors and a new dual flush toilet, but the shower surround and vanity had not been changed since this condo was built in 1989. While I could have attempted a full renovation, time constraints kept me from doing more. In addition, the materials in the bathroom were all in excellent condition and just needed a re-style to modernize the look. I painted the bathroom a fresh white to match the rest of the apartment, and then proceeded to change the vanity top, vanity doors, mirror, and lighting. I added a fresh new shower curtain and matching concert poster that I had in the condo from when I had lived there. What a different those few things did to make the bathroom ready for its new owners. With its great location on the border of Hintonburg and Mechanisville, I'm sure this one will not be on the market long. See below for all the styling details and vintage pieces. Furniture can be purchased online by pre-sale. All pre-sold pieces will be delivered free of charge (to any address within 50km of our shop) after the sale of the condo. This is usually within 3 months (think of it like a custom ordered piece!).
