Basement Hall Table

Meredith Heron used art and fabrics to inject warmth and personality into a basement hallway.

Key Elements
A Classic Palette "I used a scheme of white, navy and black and added hits of colour throughout to keep the eye moving from side to side — a great way to widen any narrow space," says Heron.

Faux Flooring Heron gave a crumbling concrete floor the look of tile using a coat of DuRock Jewel Stone. It was then painted to resemble marble tile or glazed ceramics found in France and Spain.

Storytelling Photographs Toronto artist James Anok supplied the photography for the space. The goal was to mix images of family, friends, travel and the city of Toronto as a grounding point.
