Toronto textile designer Katherine Yaphe of Oliver Yaphe shows off her custom-built family house. Take in the small entryway with a wall of seamless closets, sleek white kitchen with uncluttered storage, step-down family room, soundproof library and cosy upstairs bedrooms. Patterned rugs, dark wood floors and sunshine-filled rooms keep the look cosy.
