In this Episode
Get fresh decorating insights as Suzanne Dimma tours interior designer Patti Rosati's newly renovated condo/townhouse. The sunlight-filled space used to be a church, so Patti embraced traditional elements such as large windows and lofty ceilings, and added modern touches like white-lacquered cabinets in the kitchen and sleek grey shelving in the bedroom. Learn Patti's tips for adding pops of colour and personality to a mostly-white space. H&H design editor Joel Bray creates the look of a two-toned dresser for less using a white Ikea Trondheim chest of drawers, wood veneer from Home Hardware and sleek new pulls. Plus, Cameron MacNeil recommends fabric, window coverings, flooring and accessories for a casual living room.
