Designer Spotlight | Collective Studio
We love when design brings two people together, and that’s exactly how Collective Studio, a full service interior design firm in Toronto, came about!
Alana Firestone and Jordy Fagan had been close friends for years, collaborating on a number of projects but each focusing on their own firms. It wasn’t until the spring of 2017 that the two decided to make it official, joining forces to form Collective Studio. A true design collective that blends both designers' individual aesthetics for a tailored interior design experience, the firm is focused on creating styles that reflect the individuality of each of their clients. Let’s take a glimpse inside the creative minds of these two talented designers, shall we?
One look at this powder room and we have all the spring feels! This bright and colorful, yet delicately chic print has us reminiscing of water color paintings. A bold statement indeed, Alana and Jordy kept the space from feeling overdone by pairing the wallpaper with a minimalist décor scheme and a Pure White sink top that unifies the look. Alana and Jordy are true wallpaper aficionados!
Little ones may not be able to fully appreciate a well-decorated bathroom, but they’ll love the pull out step when it comes time to brush their teeth! The blue-grey cabinetry stands in stark contrast against the otherwise white and bright palette and keeps the space from feeling sterile. And don’t think we didn’t notice the subtle pattern play of the subway tile, shiplap detailing, and herringbone flooring.
When choosing a surface for a children’s bathroom, color isn’t the only thing worth considering. Let’s be honest - kids can be messy. Collective Studio clearly kept this in mind, opting for a countertop that was up for the challenge; Caesarstone quartz is resistant to stains, scratches, and easy to clean. In other words, Caesarstone is kid-proof!
If you’ve ever thought that grey equals boring, be prepared to be proven wrong. Not quite as stark as an all-white bathroom or as bold as a black one, this master bath exudes a modern charm that’s glamorous without being overtly feminine.
The grey walls and cabinetry let the black matte fixtures and Pure White countertop do the talking, while bringing attention to the marble wall and flooring.
Splish-splash, with a shower like this, you may want to skip the bath! The floor to ceiling clear glass gives an expansive sense to the space and transforms the shower experience from routine rinse off to serene sanctuary.
