Sears Home designer — and former H&H merchandiser — Emily Walker renovated a tiny, rundown Toronto home into a dream dwelling. She and her partner, Mark Holden, made significant changes to the layout and structure on a tight budget. See how they opened up a main floor dining room, transformed a cosy den and brightened up the entire house with dramatic fabrics and paint, graphic wallpaper and vintage furniture and accessories.
