Featuring: Sally Armstrong
Channel: Home Tour

Find out Sally Armstrong’s ideas for creating a space that kids love to spend time in. See how the House & Home senior design editor gave her Toronto basement a new lease on life by raising the ceiling and adding a glass wall that opens onto an alfresco dining area. She took a playful approach to durable materials, painted the bathroom in chalkboard paint, and spiced up the white walls with bright ikat patterns and a mural.
