Featuring: Mark Challen

Mark Challen sits down with editors Meg Crossley and Cameron MacNeil at the 2011 Interior Design Show to chat about their own home renovations. See how Meg transformed an unfinished basement into a bright, livable space for cool summer lounging, and how Cameron made over the main floor and second floor of his narrow Toronto rowhouse. Learn where to cut corners, what to splurge on, how colour can define a space, and where it’s safe to experiment with pattern.

For more of their reno tips, take virtual tours through Meg’s basement, and Cameron’s main floor and second floor.
