Russell Hill


For this historic Toronto home, Wearstler creates a whimsy-inflected wonderland that stuns with its low-key glamour.

Vintage pieces and new commissions from dealers and artisans are sourced to create a collection of bold objects that beguile. Wearstler's team customized varied designs, including covering vintage dining chairs by Belgo Chrom/Dewulf in one of her own fabrics.

The clients, who grew up in Israel and have a young son and daughter, wanted their home to reflect the earthy, Bauhaus-inspired aesthetic of their youth. "The house has an old soul, and we gave it a new spirit," Wearstler says of the change. "It's really modern and warm. Everything is tactile, and a little softer than usual."
