This charming residence is Lady Peel House by rzlbd, a historic home in Toronto, Canada, the birthplace of actress Beatrice Lillie (also known as Lady Peel). Her “long, broken and dark” interior opens up to an airy, modern white (with a hint of exposed brick), while the Victorian exterior remains largely untouched: the facade remains untouched except for a careful window enlargement and tile exposure. There are three floors of naturally lit, open concept space. I like the combination of modern interiors and antique details that have been preserved – they look so sophisticated together. A bedroom with a bathroom inside is a very contemporary idea, although wooden beams on the ceiling are reminiscent of the history of the house – that’s the characteristic of every room – the intertwining of the past and the present – so cool!
