It’s no surprise that this homeowner’s favourite accent colour is red. When entering this contemporary home’s two-storey foyer, you immediately stare upward to the sparkling Murano lighting fixture with its mix of clear and bold red pieces.

Constructed and designed by Rose Barroso of Barroso Homes, in collaboration with her architect Ali Malek from UrbanScape Group, this state-of-the-art house in the Kingsway neighbourhood serves two purposes – as a showcase of her skills as a builder and designer, as well as a home for her family of four.

Wearing many hats – from builder to mom – Barroso built a home with details to make her family’s life easier as well as luxe amenities of stylish living in the 21st century.
