Learn how to layer quirky, vintage style into a space as designer Emma Reddington, the blogger behind The Marion House Book, tours her 1905 Toronto home. With a $30,000 budget, see how she renovated the kitchen with new appliances, cabinets, flooring, a marble feature wall, and a gorgeous display shelf that she designed herself. Plus, tour her English country-inspired entryway, living room, painted-black bathroom and cosy upstairs bedrooms.
