In This Episode

Learn how designer/builder Ramsin Khachi transformed CHUM-FM radio host Darren Lamb's cramped '60s bungalow into a contemporary space with stunning views and sight lines, thanks to an open-concept plan and floor-to-ceiling windows. See the industrial-modern kitchen, dressed up with a travertine composite island and a backpainted glass backsplash, plus the living, dining, bedroom and areas, complete with rich wood floors, mid-century modern furniture and on-trend accessories. Find out how to add a fresh, custom touch to any room with painted and trimmed DIY lampshades. Plus, design editor Cameron MacNeil outlines how to modernize a bedroom using a reader's dramatic, patterned screen as inspiration.
