Heritage in Elbow Park

A century-old house gets a new lease on life, and a new family to call it home


Nestled away in exclusive East Elbow Park sat this large, cozy and inviting four-bedroom 1912 home. It had been vacant for some time after circumstances caused the owners not to move in after a renovation. It was calling out for another young family to love and live in it as other families had done over the decades. We saw all the incredible details offered in this character home but also the challenges a formal layout, darker rooms and dark woodwork may present to the potential buyer. No one wants to live in a character home if it means they can’t live with the modern-day, stylish things they love. Our challenge was to show how it was possible to happily marry 1912 and the 21st Century in one space.

DEKORA chose a fresh, soft and subtle palette to create a serene and romantic appeal in the main floor living spaces. All the bedrooms were presented to draw the attention of a young family showcasing the charming details only a home of this vintage can offer. And we can happily report, another new family is carrying on the legacy of loving this home!
