“When I designed the West Penthouse, I had a vision of classic elegance,” said Brian Gluckstein of Gluckstein Design Planning. “In the foyer, I chose handsome grey marble floors and added a bold circular pattern which gives the space a bit of drama. There are sleek custom Downsview cabinets in the kitchen, in a dark stain, paired with comfortable seating in muted neutrals for timeless appeal.”
“The master bedroom has light streaming in through the corner windows, so I went with light wood floors and white fabrics. This combination gives the room a light, airy feel even on the darkest winter days,” he added.
