Rosedale

I've had many full circle moments since starting my blog but I never expected to have one in Toronto.  In 2008, I remember pouring of the new Christian Liaigre book that was published that same year.  I even posted photos of the gardens of one of the projects featured in it called Rosedale.  On the night I arrived in Toronto, I was invited to dinner at that same home.  It is even more stunning in person and I wish I had walked slower to the cocktail area so I could take it all in.  One of the things that Christian Liaigre does better than anyone is juxtaposing clean, contemporary design with antiques and pieces with curves.  Every detail is thought out including the hardware on the doors which we all noticed. My favorite part though which I've never seen anywhere else was the fireplace off the foyer where you take off your coat.  Talk about a warm welcome. 

N.B. Many of you in Toronto know the owners of this home.  Can you please refrain from naming them in the comments.  I'd like to preserve their privacy.  Thanks!

The interior of this house is definitely very Christian Liagre. I love his style. Rosedale is a beautiful part of Toronto. During the beginning of Spring they open some homes in Rosedale for Garden Tours, Thanks for this feature.

Wow, these images are breathtaking! I can't get over the beauty of that staircase. The fireplaces and high ceilings are fabulous and don't get me started on that greenhouse. Thanks for sharing. What a lovely experience it must have been to see this fabulousness in person. Beth

You've done it again Heather! I used to walk by this home and wonder what the interiors and grounds look like. Astonishing and dramatic, they do not disappoint! It's the same feeling I had flipping through Creativity at Work for the first time; what a privilege to see spaces I normally would never see. It's about inspiration, not voyeurism!
