Showcase artwork in black frames on white walls
Don't be fooled by Natasha Koifman's small frame and radiant smile — she's both charming and a force to be reckoned with. As the owner of NKPR, a Toronto public relations firm that works with glamorous brands such as Jones New York, the not-for-profit organization Artists for Peace and Justice, and the Toronto International Film Festival's celebrity gifting suite, the IT Lounge, Natasha's used to hobnobbing with the best of the best from Canada, the U.S. and Europe. It's no surprise then that the home she shares with her son is just as stylish and sophisticated as her client list. When she first saw the house three years ago, it was a dark and dreary space, yet pulling into the driveway on the little dead-end street made her feel transported in time. So with the help of interior designer Connie Braemer, Natasha completely re-imagined the house into a light-filled gallery-like space, perfect for her impressive art collection. The glass extension at the back where the new family room is says it best: sleek yet welcoming; modern yet comfortable. And it opens onto one of the best gardens for entertaining (complete with pool!). It's the ideal place for a woman who likes nothing more than to throw a good party — be it for clients or for friends.
