A Toronto Home by Ashley Botten | DPAGES



designer Ashley Botten draws inspiration for her luxury interiors from the disparate worlds of food, fashion, art, and architecture. Her eponymous firm’s approach is grounded in collaboration and experimentation – striving for innovative solutions and a “rich emotional current [that runs through] every room.” Standing as a perfect case in point is Botten’s recently completed Trononto residence that looks good enough to eat.

in leafy surrounds the classic Toronto home boasts an array of timeless details ranging from small paned windows to beautiful plaster work and hardwood flooring throughout. In contrast to the traditional details, Botten opted for a fresh white color scheme punctuated with shots of candy color furnishings, bold art, natural woods, and mixed metals.

To the left, a pair of contemporary Douglas Levine lounge chairs add a dose of geometric interest alongside a brass Austere Floor Lamp by Hans Verstuft.

half of the living room boasts an unexpected Scott McFarland landscape and floating Piero Lissoni modular sofa. In the dining room, Botten opted to keep an existing gold leaf ceiling – citing it as an “aritsanal moment” and “thoughtful, cohesive layer in [the] light filled… room.” Along the far wall, a Dean West photo hangs as a secondary block of color playing off a series of moss green Beetle Chairs by GamFratesi. Above, a statement making Drop Chandelier by Lindsey Adelman completes the space.

the main hall lies the library – a masterful mix of business and pleasure complete with a large floating bookcase and integrated bar. To the left, a Jorge Zalszupin armchair adds a dose of late ’50s gravitas, while a contemporary Synapse Pendant by Apparatus and terrazzo coffee table by Rooms represent the classics of the future.

master bedroom, Botten opted for “intentional layers of white and neutral tones [to] create depth and dimension”. While the approach is intensely minimal on first glance, the subtle mix of tone, texture, and density make for a gorgeous ending to this delicious family home.
