Ode to Anne Hepfer

Anne Hepfer is a creative friend who has shared her Lake Lodge as well as now an enchanting Toronto abode she designed in AD. 

I saw this image and was struck by the similarity to a favorite prior project of mine.  

The Urban Electric Cosy Lantern steals the show in both images.

Anne’s project below is such a stunner you must check it out! 


There’s Wow Factor Around Every Corner in This Toronto Home

Amazingly, the ultraelegant house also happens to be kid-friendly


An asymmetrical brass mirror and transparent blue Lucite console make a modern statement against the entryway’s classic black-and-white marble floors. “Each room is very different, yet the spaces transition so beautifully from one to the next,” Hepfer says.

In the dining room, a black steel-and-brass Welles chandelier by Gabriel Scottcontrasts boldly with the home’s traditional architecture. Kristian Schuller‘s Butterfly Catcher takes over the wall, which is covered in grasscloth.

A yellow ostrich leather desk pops against the custom gray mohair sofas (all by Anne Hepfer) in the family room.

To enhance the natural light streaming into the kitchen, Hepfer painted the dark wood cabinets crisp shades of white and gray. A massive slab of Statuario Venato marble surrounds the windows on the wall above the sink.

In the living room, Hepfer opted for a matte gray palette to provide a clean backdrop for the eye-catching furnishings—check out the polished brass lamps and blue bubble resin coffee table.

Hepfer installed antique mirrors inside the ceiling coffers to bring depth and dimension to the neutral space, while the gray-and-white Greek key rug offers a touch of pattern. A Harding Meyer portrait hangs above the sofa.

Hepfer went with a geometric Ultrasuede headboard in the master bedroom. Overhead is a rock crystal chandelier by Christopher Boots.

In the sunroom, turquoise-and-white swivel chairs from Jonathan Adler draw from the tranquil hues of the outdoor swimming pool. Underfoot, a rubberized Bolon rug makes mopping up water a breeze.

The study is packed with luxe details, including a gray leather hand-stitched desk and a pair of suede-and-brass club chairs.

Hepfer chose natural pieces for the backyard loggia, from the travertine tile floors to the simple white chairs by Jardin de Ville, to complement the gorgeous garden views.
