Canadian Designer Brian Gluckstein And The New Idea Of Luxury

Feb 11, 2022 | General Information, Tips

Canadian design superstar Brian Gluckstein has helped reinvent the idea of luxury with his latest Princess Margaret Lottery Showhome. While past ideas of luxury included over-the-top embellishments like marble columns and homes so large you could get lost in them, today’s idea of luxury is more about a home’s ability to give us access to natural light, fresh air and plenty of space to work, play and relax. While still a very large 7,220 square feet, Gluckstein’s design approach to the home was all about creating a warm, usable space where residents could easily plunk down in front of a sunny window with their laptop, or curl up in the family room to watch a movie. Gluckstein mixed white walls and furniture with black accents and lots of natural wood tones to create a home that was bright and beautiful, as well as balanced and accessible. According to Gluckstein, in designing the home “we didn’t define spaces with walls and doors in order to open them up and let people in.” This openness resulted in a flow from one area to another, with a definite touch of luxury – but more subdued. And much more welcoming than the luxury homes of old.
