Early 20th Century Apartment
Release Date: June 4, 2012
Featuring: Suzanne Dimma
Channel: Home Tour
A small space doesn’t have to be sparse. Suzanne Dimma shows how an 800-square-foot apartment can be layered with antiques, storage and plenty of seating for entertaining. Located in a historic 1927 downtown Toronto building, this space features panelled doors, original moulding and gorgeous paned windows. Learn homeowner Douglas McLeod’s tricks for arranging furniture, displaying art, customizing Ikea shelves and positioning lamps in a small home.
