Funky Fresh BasementContemporary Basement, Toronto
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The clients wanted a wide-open space with a media area, gym and playroom, as well as two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The basement had 8-foot, 2-inch ceilings and minimal bulkheads, which Taylor cleverly used to her advantage. For example, the bulkhead over the bar seating incorporates the projector for the TV screen and pendant lights. Taylor has a passion for graphic design and wound up creating almost all of the wall decor down here. For example, one of the husband’s favorite movies is The Great Escape, and he has the same motorcycle Steve McQueen has in the movie. Taylor created a print of McQueen and the motorcycle (left). She also created some Warhol-like prints of another of the client’s favorites, John Wayne (right).
