Popular designer and HGTV co-host Thomas Smythe revives a historic family kitchen and attached lounge with bold patterns, strong colours and traditional references. One of three homes from our January 2012 Trends issue, the kitchen features graphic tile, grey cabinets and trendy brass accents, while the lounge stars a red tufted sofa, unique chairs and a customized antique cabinet.

See more photos of this home in our January 2012 issue, plus other Thomas Smythe features.
