Featuring: Suzanne Dimma

How do you transform a 1,200-square-foot cinder-block shack into a bright, airy, and spacious weekend retreat? Suzanne Dimma finds out as she tours the charming Caledon, Ont. home of designer Ingrid Oomen and her husband Asad Wali. Tour the antique-filled living and dining area, a kitchen with customized Ikea cabinetry and the cosy principal bedroom and ensuite bathroom.

See more photos of this home in our April 2011 issue, plus tour through Ingrid’s Toronto kitchen.
