In This Segment

Jazz up a dark Victorian home by painting rooms in fun, bold colours. Artist, writer and energetic entrepreneur Alexandra Bennett did just that with the Toronto home she shares with her husband and three children. She embraced the small, divided rooms by painting them in different shades — tour the fuchsia dining room, lilac kitchen nook, deep purple living room, and principal bedroom with soft and subtle pattern.
