Modernist Living Room

A stylish space with colourful accents.

A standout artwork, like this striking Henry Bonli painting, can help focus your decorating palette, especially in a small space where each piece has impact. For this bright — but compact — Toronto condo, decorator Sean Ward chose a porcelain side table and pillows in matching blues to create a consistent look throughout the room.

Serene Bathroom

Dark colours add drama to a small space.

The cherry-blossom motif and pale, wooden vanity in this bathroom may conjure up images of a tranquil Japanese bathhouse, but there's drama to the space as well. The room's unique wallpaper and dark floors, chosen by designer Stéphane Rasselet, provide just the right touch of moody edge.

Updated Gallery Wall

Add character to a room with album art.

When choosing art for your home, why not think outside the box? Take designer Stéphane Chamard, who created an entire gallery wall from album covers by his favourite band, The Smiths. It may be a quirky choice, but it adds a major hit of personality to his home.

Bright Bedroom

A room with a carefree look.

You'd never know how cold it is outside with these lovely, spring-like colours. A pastel palette keeps a room feeling breezy and light even through the colder — and darker — months.
