When Gele Soroka envisioned the interiors of Cascade City, Landa Global Properties’ new home community in Richmond, she found inspiration in the names often associated with comfort and luxurious living.
The illustrations of the details in decor and finishes in the Cascade City suites show the simplicity of great design. “The concept was to create a luxury dream space for potential buyers,” says Soroka, the principal of Sublime Interior Design. She based the look of the dining room lighting on the styles found at Restoration Hardware, while the dining room chairs take on the flavour of the luxury brand Minotti, and the living room chairs, sofa and throw were inspired by Versace, Roche Bobois, and Hermes, respectively.”We selected this light fixture because of its brushed bronze tone, sleek lines and sparkly crystal spheres. It has sleek contemporary lines with a traditional colour, making it a perfect mix.”
In a kitchen, the marriage of just two tones high gloss light grey upper cabinets and white lower cabinets by Aster Cucine creates a dramatic effect.

chic look and reflects light, while smaller details in the cabinetry and the island transform their look and practical uses,” Soroka adds.
“Using finger reveals [which allow the homeowner to see a portion of the cabinet frame] instead of cabinet hardware creates a clean and minimalist look. The side gable on the island creates the illusion of a waterfall edge that integrates into the countertop, enlarging the appearance of the island.”
In a bathroom, the Sublime team used the same tile on the wall and flooring, which gives the room a posh feel. These Italian marble inspired tiles “give the look of luxurious marble, but offer durability.
“Efficient floor plans [give] the homeowner gets more square footage in useful, living spaces (living, kitchen, dining, bedroom) as opposed to less desirable locations (like corridors),” he says.
“The shallow tower floor plate also means units have more access to decks: Each unit has a deck that wraps the full length of the unit. As units are more shallow, decks are more generous.”
