Achieving the look of timeless design is no simple task. Believing that a well-designed space should feature natural materials, a neutral colour palette and high-quality furniture, Sail Condominiums enlisted the help of Gordana Car Interior Design.
Gordana’s daughter, Dora, outfitted the common areas with a light and airy feel. The lobby of the Opearl development boasts high ceilings, glass walls and plush seating areas. “The lobby is so important in a condominium,” explained Dora. “Residents pass through there every day, and it makes a first impression on guests. We took great care planning out this space with stone and wood. The concierge desk is made from a clean slab of Calcutta marble, and the hanging circular lights add a touch of visual drama. The look is grounded by oversize porcelain tile flooring. The overall palette of white and light grey will stay fresh forever.”
Outside, the artfully landscaped courtyard features a green wall, barbecues and a rectangular pergola. “Like the interior amenities, this outdoor space has minimal design and very clean lines,” said Dora. In the fitness centre, floor-to-ceiling windows, coloured floors and columns, and ceiling detailing with architectural grill lights will convey a sense of energy.
Just off the lobby is a stylish party room that can accommodate up to 50 people. “Mid-century modern-style furniture in taupes and browns for warmth, combined with porcelain floor tiles in light and dark greys with an offset pattern and sleek floor-to-ceiling cabinetry in the kitchen area, create the feeling of a downtown lounge,” said Dora. “The idea is that residents will want to stay here rather than go out for the evening.”
Priced from $199,900, suites will be characterized by laminate flooring and integrated appliances that are covered in the same paneling as the two-toned kitchen cabinetry. “As long as the skeleton of the space has a timeless design, such as the suites at Sail Condominiums, owners can inject their own design style and it will look beautiful.”
Located at Victoria Park and Sheppard Avenue in Scarborough, the residence is close to amenities, bus routes, the proposed Sheppard LRT and Highways 401, 404 and the Don Valley Parkway. Buyers can take advantage of a number of incentives, including a stretched deposit schedule for second and subsequent suites. Those who have already purchased a suite can refer a friend or family member, and if that person buys a suite, both will receive $2,500 in free upgrades.
