Featuring: Colette van den Thillart

Designer Colette van den Thillart of London’s NH Design takes us through the main floor of her 1920s Toronto home. After spending the last 13 years in England, she wanted a house she could fill with collected antiques and newer, more contemporary art. Tour through her entryway with intricate ceiling mural. See the formal living room’s eclectic mix of favourite things, dining room with bold, velvet-wrapped walls and long galley kitchen with a homework area for the kids.

For more, tour Colette van den Thillart’s Muskoka cottage, London home, plus the second floor of this home. For more on this Toronto home, see our December 2012 issue.
