Discover the recipe for a bold, open-concept home. Chef and food stylist Claire Stubbs opened up her cramped Toronto semi to make it more modern and airy — resizing or relocating nearly every wall, door, window and staircase in the process. See how she transformed the main floor with a walnut and marble dream kitchen, dining area for 12, modern fireplace wall, and a living room with a hidden TV. Plus, learn how stacked staircases and widened doorways with sliding doors made the second and third floors bright and expansive.
