Recently Cecconi Simone designed the interior of this penthouse interior decoration of apartment in Toronto, Canada. This penthouse occupies an entire level in a new, hi-rise condominium in Yorkville, Downtown Toronto. In line with current social trends, the clients – husband and wife empty-nesters – have downsized from a large, 1950s-era suburban penthouse interior decoration, opting instead for a more urban, less car-dependent lifestyle. The penthouse interior decoration space, initially a raw shell, saves for the placement of the plumbing, presented an exceptional opportunity to create a living environment tailored perfectly to the clients’ needs.
Urban Penthouse Interior Decoration
Interior Design Ideas from Cecconi Simone:
To that end, a modern, urban penthouse interior decoration has been crafted, with a clean design aesthetic in a palette of warm finishes. The penthouse interior decoration is organized into a semi-open-plan, with fluid yet distinct public and private zones. Numerous occasions for displaying art are incorporated throughout.
In the private elevator lobby, separating the public and private areas of the penthouse interior decoration, a lowered ceiling and curtain treatment, concealing mechanicals and building services, produce a compressed and softened introductory space. This enhances the sense of expansion and polished precision upon entry into the rest of the penthouse interior decoration.
In the public zone, the gallery-passage adjoining the living area is clad in white glazing panels, providing a neutral backdrop for artwork and creating an engaging contrast to the walnut floor tiles. A specially-commissioned screen, by Toronto-artist Ken Gang bar, delineates the gallery-passage and living area without hindering views.
In the expansive living area, a custom, double-sided fireplace separates a larger gathering space from a smaller conversation space. Generous window openings and white-painted wall surfaces frame city views and receive works of art.

The adjacent, open-plan dining–kitchen–den area, flooded with natural light from successive, near floor-to-ceiling windows, is designed for casual, family get-together and catered meals for friends and guests.
An extended counter island accommodates buffet and cocktail-style events. During food preparation, the cooking area may be separated from the dining, den and living areas with sliding, glass, pocket partitions. Integrated and built-in appliances and custom mill work with invisible hardware eliminate visual clutter.
In the private zone of the penthouse interior decoration, the master suite embraces an art-display area, sleep area, and his and hers en-suites with dressing area. His en-suite, with back entry, is isolated acoustically from the sleep area to ensure quiet during early-morning grooming and dressing.
Her dressing area includes a small work space, gathering paperwork from more visible parts of the penthouse interior decoration. In her en-suite, the tub at the windows is raised on a platform to accommodate plumbing. Generated by practical need, the plinth enhances the tub as the focal point of the space.
