Meet Roxy, our favourite cast member on the Real Housewives of Toronto!
We got the call and in-store visit by Roxy Earle and her adorable BFF pup Lola one Sunday, to help her add some luxury to her home. If you know Luxurious Roxy, she’s a world traveller and lover of the finer things, but also a home body, family-oriented and super chill.
She had just moved back to Toronto from London, England and still had many pieces in storage, so our mandate was to figure out which pieces to use in her new home.
Over the course of 3 weeks, between her jetting to Turks and Caicos for vacation, we messaged back and forth and, once everything was selected, went back to her home for installation and styling day.
For the Living Room: Roxy chose this glam Jonathan Adler swivel chair which is flanked by her father, Michael Earle's, art and a stylish side table. We went with this stunning coffee table to complement the scale of her 9-foot chesterfield blue velvet sofa. Surfaces were styled using Roxy’s beloved books and her vast collection of shells and other artifacts from her travels.
As the Grand Hall opens up to a second level living room, we went with 2 arm chairs to flank the fireplace and work with Roxy’s bold ottoman. The mantel featuring more of her beloved dad’s art just needed some romantic Indian lanterns. This room now flows beautifully into the living room which makes it great for entertaining.
In the large kitchen and breakfast room which opens up to Roxy’s back yard, we added 4 chic, comfortable chairs to surround an heirloom wood dining table, and we topped it off with a modern gold pendant.
We couldn’t be happier with how Roxy’s home turned out, and were over the moon with the praise she sent us:
“My father’s artwork along with pieces I've picked up along my travels are central to the design of my home. The things that fill my home need to have a story and meaning, and Nina and her team embraced those pieces and worked from there as a starting point to provide a fresh and youthful design to my space. They have an ability to piece together new and old in a way that made my home feel well edited but also authentic to my point of view”.
