In This Segment

Colette van den Thillart of NH Design shares how she brought personality and character to her principal bedroom, ensuite bathroom and her teen daughter’s bedroom. Learn how the designer mixed treasured pieces from her family's previous home in England and reinterpreted them for their Toronto house. Tour the romantic ensuite with a zinc tub, vanity made from an antique dresser, and dramatically veined marble floor. Next, see how her fashion-loving daughter's room was designed with whimsical touches like an upholstered headboard in the shape of a dress.

For more, tour Colette van den Thillart's Muskoka cottage, London home, plus the main floor of this home. For more on this Toronto home, see our December 2012 issue.
