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 Shabby Chic.

Their Shabby Chic model home was designed with both established and young families in mind. These buyers want their home to be a place for family and friends to gather in relaxed comfort. The white on white colour scheme mixes a range of crisp and creamy neutrals with weathered woods and natural textures.

The materials throughout the model home point to a sense of history, with traditional elements such as beaded light fixtures and caning bringing a timeworn feel to the space.

Reclaimed items and weathered woods give the impression that the furniture and accessories were found at local markets or passed down from generation to generation, enhancing the sense of family and comfort.
