Featuring: Nancy Riesco

Tour the modern family home designer Nancy Riesco shares with her husband and two kids. Learn why they downsized from a large Tudor in an established neighbourhood to a narrow 2,300-square-foot home with views of the ocean. See the open-concept main floor with flowing sightlines and salon-style art wall, serene principal bedroom and colourful rooms for both her teenagers.
