In This Segment

H&H's Margot Austin shows off the small, mid-century Scarborough home she used to live in before downsizing even further to a west-end condo. See how she incorporated lighting and furniture that suit the style of the home, along with layers of her own favourite antiques. Plus, learn her tricks for pinching pennies, from updating existing kitchen cupboards to creating an affordable bed canopy.
