Contemporary Feminine Living Room

A stark contrasting palette welcomes soft touches of pink and blue.

Influenced by her designer mother's sense of style, Toronto homeowner Jennifer Young took cues from her childhood home to create a trendy space. "We had a David Hicks rug in the dining room when I was growing up, and I find myself with one now," she says. Filled with pretty and unusual travel finds, this living room benefits from a myriad of prints and textures in a monochromatic colour scheme.
