Featuring: Suzanne Dimma
Channel: Home Tour

Suzanne Dimma takes us through the ’70s-inspired home of Sasha Seymour. See how the stylist renovated a cramped and dark midtown home into an open, flowing space with retro furniture and timeless materials. Tour the beautifully tiled entryway, library with colour-blocked books, spacious living room, kitchen with sleek white subway tiles and a cosy fireplace, upstairs bathrooms, and principal bedroom with Parisian influence.

See more photos of this home in our September 2011 issue.
