After discussing the look, atmosphere and vibe they wanted, it was determined that the operative word for the condo was “cosmopolitan”. This condo, with its million dollar view of one of the great lakes, definitely did not have a cosmopolitan feel. It looked like it belonged in the suburbs – a very attractive, well-built space, but an overabundance of cherry wood and traditional elements were ill-placed in this luxury condo.
The kitchen, living and dining rooms were all one large space, so it was important that they flow well. The kitchen had dark cherry cabinets, granite countertops and basic lighting. Light maple floors kept the condo further away from the uptown look that the client wanted.
