Interior: Modern classic home
Family room Connecting to an open kitchen, the cheerful space is a hangout for Laura Neyestani and daughters Chloe, 3, and six-month-old Charlotte. The chocolate leather sofa is one of only two items the couple brought from their former home. Dining room Midcentury sleek meets traditional chic in the pairing of a Saarinen table and ballroom-style chairs. A crystal chandelier and ornate mirror round out the glam vignette.
Kitchen "We entertain a lot, and the kitchen is a convenient space for that," says Amir Neyestani. "The large island is great for potlucks."
Living room Hits of cool blue and a rich mix of textures enliven the crisp tone-on-tone palette. The painting by Douglas Walker provides a dramatic focal point.
Light touch Keeping the interior bright was key. The windows in the stairwell, the reflective surfaces that amplify natural light and the cream-colour diamond-pattern rug (a steal from The Cross marked down to $1,500 from $5,000) all play a part.
Master bedroom Soft hues of burgundy and camel lend the room a tranquil air. "It's a balance of our two styles - pretty plus modern," says Laura.
Nursery "We were in the early stages of making this a guest room when Laura and Amir announced they were having another baby," says designer Peter Wilds, "so we turned it into a nursery." The custom cherry blossom wall decal can easily be changed.
