Retro Meets Modern Apartment Kitchen

Spaces by Jacflash gave a major makeover to a small kitchen that was stuck in the 90s, with maple cabinets, laminate counters, and a dusty rose ceramic tile backsplash. We transformed it into an open, airy space with a ‘modern-meets-retro’ vibe to connect with the concept of the previously done living room. This warm white colour pallet, consisting of bright white cabinets, a bone refrigerator and creamy backsplash gives a very clean, fresh look. By adding chrome details it adds a touch of sparkle to enhance a sense of femininity.

The retro off white Caloric fridge was our jumping off point. Its tall but slim frame gave us the option of adding more storage in between the oven. Taking away the upper hanging cabinets above the sink made the entire room open concept, and reducing the bar-top to a level island gave so much more space for entertaining. Adding a microwave above the oven with a built in hood also gave us much more counter space, which was one of our client’s main requests.

Using quartz is a great way to get a high end marble look, for a fraction of the price. Using quartz is also much more resistant material, and will not stain or chip as easily as a natural stone. These Ikea cabinets were a huge cost saver. The style we chose has a built in finger channel which reduced the need for hardware. Splurging on items like the fridge, counter and lighting, make this kitchen look more extravagant without the price tag of a custom kitchen. The light was a modern take on a retro inspired Sputnik light, that also fit perfectly in this galley style layout. It has a dramatic presence from both the entrance and dining room. The chrome finish ties in with the new sink faucet, and handles on the fridge. 

 

Continuing the concept of eclectic style was a challenge in such a small space, but keeping the main pieces white and bright allowed us to get playful with accessories like the sage green clock, the linen towels, small rag rug, and wooden cutting boards. Luckily our client already had a beautiful wooden table, so we paired it with some Mid-Century inspired dining chairs in a salt and pepper fabric and chrome legs to in the dining room and kitchen.

Sneak Peek of TORONTO RAPTOR’S PATRICK PATTERSON’S Condo

Today I’m giving you all a sneak peek of NBA Toronto Raptor, Patrick Patterson’s condo in the Trump International Hotel and Residences, designed by Spaces by Jacflash.

Designing Patrick’s condo was one of the most exciting projects the Spaces by Jacflash team has done thus far and we could not be more proud of the end result! 

We worked on this project for months- but the seemingly endless hours of manual and creative labour put into our spaces are more than worthwhile once our projects are complete and our vision comes to life.

Spaces by Jacflash works in collaboration with our clients to develop an exclusive and extraordinary look for each and every space. One of our favourite design ideas on Patrick’s project was the giant dinosaur skull we put atop his patina mirror coffee table- the perfect centerpiece for the Toronto Raptor. 

Here are a few photos for you guys to see before the full album is uploaded on our website!
