THE CARNABY COMES TO LIFE IN FABULOUS STREETCAR MODEL SUITE
Streetcar Developments’ The Carnaby takes its name from London’s hip, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood, an urban destination that brings boutique retail, art galleries, and charming little cafés together into an iconic grown-up playground. It’s that vibe of youthful creativity that springs to life at The Carnaby’s one-bedroom-plus-den model suite.
This striking space brings together the loft-living expertise of the contemporary urban experts at Streetcar Developments and the creative style of Seven Haus Design. Hand-picked, eclectic, modern furniture and accessories make for a sleek, modern space that is functional and stunning.
The entire living space is clean and open, warmed by the wood floors and cabinets, and is exceptionally functional. Sunshine through the expansive windows bathes the living area in light, making the hardwood floors gleam. They’re a smart contrast to the variety of finishes and textures harmonizing in the kitchen where glossy upper cabinets and woodgrain lower cabinets provide ample storage, and seamlessly integrate the fridge and dishwasher. Beautiful Caesarstone quartz countertops, which are standard at The Carnaby, add texture and another upscale touch. The angular, stainless steel, zero-radius sink fits the loft feel, hinting at a professional chef’s kitchen. An upgraded island houses even more storage and a perfect place for friends to gather over cocktails.
In the bedroom, glass doors let in the light without infringing on privacy. Once opened, they add to the loft’s airy feel. The bathroom’s backlit mirrors are an innovative way to add functional lighting and enhance the boutique hotel style complemented by the standard wall-mount faucet.
The den provides a functional space that isn’t visible from the rest of the suite and offers versatile space for work, with generous room for a computer desk, storage and shelving. There isn’t any wasted corridor space, which is a priority at The Carnaby and in every Streetcar interior layout. Innovative design solutions, like the den treatment in the model suite, are directed at the way people want to live — lots of storage, intelligent laundry spaces, quality construction and millwork, and a respect for the value of every square foot.
“The Carnaby is about much more than just an address and square footage,” says Jessica Helps, a principal at Seven Haus Design. “It is about liveability.”
