The principal concept for this home was to employ a variety of natural elements to create a warm yet masculine living space that functions equally as a family home.
A neutral base was created throughout the entire space with Benjamin Moore Edge Comb Grey Paint on the walls, with Cloud White trim and ceilings. This allowed our team to enrich each space with a combination of natural elements such as leather, stone, iron, and wood, without the space seeming cluttered.
We achieved a dual purpose for the man cave space; both showcasing hunting trophies, as well as making it a comfortable TV room by selecting comfortable leather sitting pieces and a minimalist entertainment unit and adorning with comfy pillows with a hunting theme.
The concept for the great room was to truly make it great – showcasing the stunning stonemasonry in the fireplace and highlighting the cathedral ceiling with a medieval style chandelier and large wall clock. The distressed leather of the sectional sofa and the blacksmith accents of the coffee table continued the theme of masculinity and the great outdoors.
The pallets for the bedroom and bathrooms were strategically chosen to be a mélange of subdued browns and warm greys, so that each space was afforded the opportunity to stand out, while maintaining a uniform feel throughout the home. Each room is speckled with hints of the wild – from artwork featuring large game, cedar canoes, and showcasing the intricacies of wood to subtle faux fur throws and pillows or wall clocks featuring wood panels.
Black iron, sometimes industrial lighting was chosen to create a contrast to the soft walls and to reinforce the feeling of masculinity.
To make the space a true Cutter’s Edge original, select pieces were designed and built specifically for this home – such as the wall media console in the great room and the Canadian flag art piece in the main hallway.
