blog-header_Media-Room-Reveal-Fortress-Bay_Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design-(3)This was a fun space that we designed as a sophisticated teen hangout/family media room. The inspiration for the colour palette of the room actually came from an existing art piece from our clients collection. We were intrigued by the interesting combo and loved the pops of orange and decided to carry the bright colour throughout as fun accent pieces. Media-Room-Reveal-Fortress-Bay_Corea-Sotropa-Interior-Design2

The room has large vaulted ceilings, so in order to create a more cozy experience we decided to drape the back wall in floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall ripplefold drapery (which conveniently also helps with the sound).  A little secret about this wall is that there is actually no center split in the drapery because there is no window. This helps create a visually undisturbed ripple and the clients won’t ever need to open these drapes.

This room was a real mix of high/low from the Crate and Barrel sectional to the custom Kravet ottoman. You can never go wrong with custom pillows to tie the room together and we fell head over heels for this graphic Kelly Wearstler fabric.  The ultimate goal for this room was to create a cozy spot to relax, watch movies and play video games. We love how it all came together and with an eclectic combo of rustic and refined!

There are some projects that we are really proud of and this is one that really defines our team at Corea Sotropa. We are huge fans of the mid century modern look and often try to incorporate cool vintage details into our designs. This client wanted all the bells and whistles and we had so much fun creating this dream kitchen.

Spring is almost here, but in the design world we are getting ready for summer! Believe it, now is the time to start dreaming and scheming for patio season and ordering up new furniture. We have been so lucky this winter in regards to weather that we have already even enjoyed a few patio days (though its still quite brown out there).

We thought it was the perfect time to share this fantastic project that we completed, affectionately called out “Mount Royal Roof Top”. Our team wanted to create an inner city oasis for our clients, a perfect spot to entertain and escape after a long day.  This roof top condo project was certainly a challenge, but we managed to find creative solutions and the clients were thrilled with the final result.

The entire space was inspired by the existing terracotta tiles and the exterior brick walls. Pops of orange mixed with bold geometric patterns were the perfect accents for this inviting space. We fell in love with the bold and graphic Schumacher chevron outdoor fabric used it in a few areas around the patio. One of the design considerations that had to be made throughout the process was the fact that our wonderful city is prone to gale force winds. We had to make sure that the furniture items were sturdy enough to handle these winds, and the majority of the pieces were sourced from a company called Dedon, known for its quality and unparalleled style.

The good news is the 900 pound corten steel planter won’t be going anywhere ( its tucked behind the brick wall and we will have a photo in our next reveal). The bad news was for the four guys that had to carry it up the narrow stairwell to the patio (thanks guys!). We also had a custom acrylic mirror made for the patio along with a custom fire table. Rather than a traditional gas fueled fireplace, we used and eco smart gel with a custom glass surround (again that wind).
