It’s hard to believe, but autumn is around the corner, which means we’re quickly heading toward the holiday season. It’s the time of year where we gather with friends and family, enjoy having company over and catching with friends on the year that was, as we sip hot apple cider.
If you’re starting to think about ways to refresh your cozy Toronto condo interior in time for the season, we have some suggestions on how to keep your condo’s decor up to date.
Neutral colours are always going to be a safe choice. However, many designers are beginning to move away from the white and grey tones. As the weather cools, embrace warm, colours like auburn, blush and green.
Accents & Texture:
If you’re not the type to embrace colourful walls and prefer to keep things neutral, that works too. Consider using accent pieces to weave texture into your interior, making your space more inviting. This trend has staying power as well, only recently appearing recently. Brushed brass, light fixtures, quilts are just some examples of how to incorporate texture into the decor. A quick test of the trend: Drape a wool throw or mixed fabric pillows on a leather chair.
Autumn decorating doesn’t change much year to year, and 2017 hasn’t strayed far from the trend. Rustic furniture has been a hot trend, and nothing says rustic, quite like wicker furniture. As always Gourds and Pumpkins are an essential part of the season but instead of traditional centrepieces or Cornucopias, get creative. Accent end tables with metal buckets painted stones and pitchers filled with faux wheat and plants. Just get rid of the gourds before December otherwise you’re just leaving produce lying around the house.
Bring the Outdoors, In:
Fall wreaths are always a welcome addition to a front door and make for a fun arts and crafts project, for the do-it-yourself type. Use dried leaves, pinecones, acorns and moss in a variety of projects. The more of the piece you make yourself, the more genuine & natural it will feel, making it more inviting to your guests.
Bazis has played an influential role in the transformation of Toronto’s landscape and skyline. It is our innovative architectural design, our signature style that has contributed to this and set us apart from other real estate developers.
Over the last decade, we have worked with renowned architect Rosario Varacalli to create inspired designs paying close attention to every detail, inside and out. Details that are distinctive, contemporary and classic and make a statement.
These innovative designs are apart of each one of our projects: The standout and luminous green glass towers of Emerald Park that punctuate the monochromatic skyline of North York. Two towers with distinctively flared tops that share a three-story podium which houses office and retail space.
A single tower, enveloped in faceted metallic ribbons that glitter against the cityscape is the distinctive 1 Yorkville. Incredibly luxurious details such as the rooftop theatre, spa and pool.
A unique tower made up of four cubes is perfectly juxtaposed with the design of the Royal Ontario Museum directly across from Exhibit. One of its most distinguishing features is a stunning urban outdoor oasis.
Modern beauty takes shape at Yonge and Eglinton with eCondos, the first building in Toronto to have a glass cantilevered pool lounge.
Crystal BLU, a statement of sophistication rises from a six-storey podium inset with awe-inspiring blue glass crystal that adds an extraordinary dimension to the city skyline.
These are some of the distinctive exterior details of our communities. Each unique residence, built with a clear vision of interior details marrying seamlessly with the exterior theme of the building. Functional living spaces with an open concept layout, each unit features luxurious interiors with signature designer finishes.
Some of the striking features that have become synonymous with the BAZIS signature style include high ceilings, expansive windows offering panoramic views; wrap around terraces; and European inspired kitchens with top of the line appliances.
In addition to these are the incredible amenities built-in to every one of our projects as well. Fitness galleries with yoga studios and lounges, sparkling indoor and outdoor pools, elegant entertainment rooms, rooftop gardens and beautiful lobbies.
Features and amenities such as these have all contributed to the signature BAZIS style.
