Discover affordable decorating tips from H&H style editor Michael Penney. He and his wife, Sara, gave up their downtown Toronto apartment for a house of their own in Oshawa, Ont. They wanted to give the 90-year-old, classically detailed home a young, fresh, Maine-style feel. After three months of renovations and redecorating, 21 gallons of paint, and scrolling through hundreds of Craigslist antiques, their home finally has a polished yet unstuffy look. See how they updated their fireplace, built-in bookshelves, sofa and armchairs, and how combining patterns for chairs, drapery and rugs lends a casual feel to the traditional elements of the living and dining room.
