Learn how to layer quirky, vintage style into a space as designer Emma Reddington, the blogger behind The Marion House Book, tours her 1905 Toronto home. With a $30,000 budget, see how she renovated the kitchen with new appliances, cabinets, flooring, a marble feature wall, and a gorgeous display shelf that she designed herself. You'll also love her English country-inspired entryway, living room, painted-black bathroom and cosy upstairs bedrooms. Watch design editors Joel Bray and Cameron MacNeil transform one ho-hum living room two ways with their own unique set of decorating tricks. Plus, interior design consultant Dan Marentic of Toronto firm Ctrl/Alt/Delete shares savvy storage- and style-boosting tips as he takes us through his renovated 565-square-foot condo.
