Empire Communities’ new low rise community in Thorold, Ontario features four model homes, each with a distinct personality that appeals to a broad purchaser profile. Introducing Modern Scandi.

The Modern Scandi home appeals to young families and professionals looking for a creative, urban feel. Inspired by modern Scandinavian style, which is characterized by simplicity, functionality, and minimalism, the home also features nods to mid-century design.

The home is a study in contrasts, with a bold black and white colour scheme creating drama and depth. In the living room, a fireplace covered in faux brick painted white is the focal point of the room, and is flanked by walls painted deep charcoal.

Natural elements like wood and brick are softened with heavy knit textures and faux fur. Woven chairs lighten the space and create a feeling of openness by allowing for unobstructed sight lines into the room.
