Featuring: Juli Daoust

Gather budget-chic decorating ideas as Juli Daoust and John Baker, style-savvy owners of the Toronto store Mjolk, tour their 1,000-square-foot cottage and share stories behind their furniture finds, travels, and outlook on design. Learn how the young couple opened up their floor plan, added cosy rugs and art, and picked up Scandinavian finds on a dime.
