Reader Living Room: Cosy Retreat

Built-ins provide ample storage space.

"Before our renovation, our living room was dark but we knew that it had potential," says homeowner Nini J. of Toronto. "Our designer, Gillian Gillies, brought the space to life and included more storage, shelving and seating. She also remained true to the age of the house, by preserving its traditional feel, including the oak pocket door and the fabulous millwork. It is the centre of our home and perfect for our casual entertaining style."
