Featuring: Helen Dewar

Homeowner Helen Dewar explains how she turned the narrow 15 by 30-foot main floor of her family’s townhouse into a functional space for entertaining. See how she maximized natural light by removing upper cabinetry and added colour with elegant wallpaper, yellow-painted doors and striped fabric. Plus, learn how she squeezed in extra seating for guests with a narrow kitchen island and custom dining table.
