Sasha Seymour's Art

I know I'm a little late to the party vis-à-vis stylist Sasha Seymour's Toronto townhouse. I drooled right along with you when we all saw this amazing kitchen make the rounds:

The brass is what did it. 

As I looked through some photos of the rest of Sasha's house, I really loved the art in two of her spaces and how she used it to make the room special. Check out her dining room:

Very simple and very effective. And truly, the art makes this space. I see those chairs on Craigslist all the time, though finding a large set like this (in good condition) would be a challenge. Alone, they have a retro vibe that is lovely, but paired with the beautiful artwork and light fixture, they sing. The colors of the art piece work so well with the paint of the room and the otherwise neutral tones and its singular impact is all the space needs in terms of decoration. Really, really lovely. 

And look at this nook in her bedroom:

Sasha does a brilliant job of using the artwork to guide the pieces that surround it. She is a stylist after all. The peacock of the curtains, off-white of the fur chair, and mustard of the roman shade all work back to the quirky little painting.  A piece of art is a great way to tie together pieces that don't necessarily "match."

Her townhouse tour is worth a click - check it out here.


  1. The hardware in her kitchen is amazing!

  2. This is one of my favorite IKEA hacks of all time. Her kitchen cabinets from IKEA, all snazzy with amazing hardware..I love it.
    Have a great week.

  3. I agree with you and the other comments. Her spaces are amazing and the artwork is sooo important.

  4. I love the use of art as a catalyst to create the space. Beautifully done and I want her bedroom nook!!

    What drawer pulls is she using? I've been thinking of these Ikea cabinets with flush ring pulls and it kind of looks like that's what she's done. I can't quite see it, though!

    Oops, linked through so I could actually see. Yes, they are what I thought they were (although rectangular). Nice!
