Sparkling marble mosiac tiles, beadboard, bistro-style chalkboards and iconic mid-century modern chairs mix beautifully in the kitchen, entryway and dining room of designer Karen Cole’s Toronto semi. Learn how she renovated her cramped Victorian home to incorporate plenty of storage. Plus, see how she repurposed old stained-glass porch doors in the kitchen, and how she opened up and unified the rooms to create a charming and eclectic space that’s perfect for living, cooking and entertaining.

See more photos of this home in our March 2011 issue, and tour the living room, office and bedrooms in episode 61.
