Located at 611 Dufferin Avenue, right across from École Victoria School – the same institution that started as the one-room schoolhouse now on view at the U of S campus – this Dollhouse combines modern open-concept common areas with a 3-storey floorplan commonly found in Nutana.
We considered installing hardwood floors throughout the space to mimic the same character found in neighbouring homes, but decided that luxury vinyl plank would make more sense for the needs of today’s homeowner. With the school right across the street and the reality of busy families, we knew LVP would make a better flooring choice for dealing with all the spills and thrills.

Our design choices were focused around colours that would suit the home’s neutral aesthetic. Once we determined the palette, we were able to base all other selections off of that. You’ll notice that everything from the matching main floor and finished attic, to the tiling throughout (around the fireplace, in the kitchen, bathroom walls and shower floor) are all working together to achieve the desired effect.
We paid attention to the smallest details: colour matching transition strips, stair nosing, and aria vents. These details make all the difference in creating a seamless look. It’s when you don’t pay attention to the details that they really stand out! Our choices complemented those made by Hometown Homes in their design process, where they considered such details as the historical newspaper-turned-wallpaper in the bathroom that pays homage to the Broadway area.
We hope you enjoyed this look at what turned out to be a very rewarding project! Take what you like into your next project as inspiration or talk to a member of our sales team to help curate design choices for your space.
