In This Episode

Prepare to swoon over H&H style editor Michael Penney's Maine-inspired, decorative living room, dining room and pretty pale blue French-country kitchen. (Then, steal his affordable decorating tips!) Michael and his wife, Sara, gave up their downtown Toronto apartment for a house of their own in Oshawa, Ont. See how they renovated and redecorated the 90-year-old, classically detailed home with gallons of paint, Craigslist antiques, updated built-ins and mix-and-match patterns for chairs, drapery and rugs that lend a casual feel to the space. They also refreshed the small-space kitchen without a big-reno price tag by painting old cabinets and only investing in Carrara marble counters, a white subway tile backsplash, a farmhouse faucet and new stainless steel appliances. Plus, H&H style expert Reiko Caron demonstrates how to convert a boxy Ikea table into a colourful showpiece with wallpaper. You'll want to bookmark this budget-chic Online TV episode!
