Semi-detached reno

Arnal Photography

This homeowner renovated semi-detached home in Toronto is one of those rare spaces I recently photographed for a realtor friend. From what the homeowner has told me, the stained glass and light fixtures were with the house… in the attic… when they purchased it. Over a period of years they removed plaster, revealing the brick behind it, closed in the wall between the dining room and the living room (which had been opened by a previous owner) using the stained glass panels. The interesting thing was that the stained glass panels were all slightly different sizes, so their treatment in mounting them had to be especially careful.

They also paid particular attention to maintaining the heritage look of the space while upgrading utilities and adding their own more modern touches. The eclectic blend just adds to the charm of the home. Not afraid of bright colour, the daughter’s room is a shocking shade of orange, but somehow, it works!

Unfortunately, being the photographer, I have little information on sourcing aside from knowing that the kitchen is from Ikea. That said, I think this is a space that holds inspiration beyond the imagination!

Sorry, I am only the photographer on this project, which was used as part of a magazine article about the stained glass. As a result, I would have no idea where to begin looking for information on the mirrors. Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Sorry, I'm just the photographer on the project, so would have no idea as to the specific answer to your question (ie. Benjamin Moore, Para, CIL... or a paint colour specifically). I can tell you the paint colour in the photo is quite accurate to the actuall wall colour. It was a fairly light, neutral grey.
