THE PROVINCE: POLYGON'S KALEIDO SUITES A STUDY IN CONTRASTS


The decor in the display homes at Kaleido, Polygon’s new community of townhomes in North Delta, is a study in opposites and a testament to the ingenuity of Polygon senior designers Zusette Cruz and Sofie LaForest.

Throughout the homes, they play with diverse sizes of patterns and furnishings and blend country-rustic with sleek modern styles. It pays off in a blended, interesting look that’s unified and infused with warmth.

This is clear in the kitchen, dining and living room open-concept area, where the food-prep area is sleek and modern. Steps away in the dining room, strong metal chairs evoke a farmhouse feel against a solid wood dining table and vintage-looking chandelier.

Cruz calls it a “modern country” display, a balance of the old and the new. “It achieves a fresh new look of country rustic charm. (We used a) combination of sleek shapes and finishes with the rustic charm of country furnishings and accessories.”

Cruz and LaForest are also able to create a focal point without stealing attention from other features.

They fill a master bedroom with inviting pieces, like a black Barcelona chair and colour-coordinated bed pillows, but it’s that huge upholstered headboard that dominates, without overpowering any other features. Zusette credits a juxtaposition in sizes.

“The small-scaled pattern on the fabric is subdued enough that it doesn’t take over the whole room. The pop of chartreuse and the scale of the headboard, going up to the ceiling, is what gives the bedroom a focal point,” Cruz says.

In another bedroom, Cruz and LaForest play a harder-looking wall unit against softer textures. Upholstery and pillows are fashioned similarly, with distinct red striping. “We then took the same horizontal pattern and used it as the pattern on the headboard wall.” They used grey to tone down the bright red.

It’s clear in the kids’ bedrooms that the designers had a blast, playing with texture and colour. They covered a nursery wall with burnt-orange fish, images they felt married well with the modern country theme in other parts of the home. In a boy’s room, they applied a funky wallcovering depicting retro cycling images, also in burnt orange.

“The cycling wallpaper had such a vintage feel to the design and fit well in the theme of this display,” says Cruz. “Cycling is quite popular in the community with all the nearby trails so we thought this room is quite fitting. The burnt orange and dark blue accents in the room, like in the headboard and toss cushions, were taken from the colours of the cycling wallpaper and gives the room a unified look.”
