Step Inside A Designer’s Rustic & Refined Family Home

Designer Jordy Fagan of Collective Studio and her husband, Ben, were planning the transformation of their dream home when a surprise discovery altered their plans. “About a month into the renovation, we found out we were expecting twins,” she says. So, the walk-in closet turned into a nursery for their children, Quincy and Breaker, and the whole place got a family-friendly treatment (hint: the spacious laundry room). “It was perfect timing.”

The dated Toronto home hadn’t been renovated since the 1980s, which is exactly why the couple bought it: they wanted to take it back to the studs and start from scratch. Jordy and her business partner Alana Firestone completely opened up the choppy layout, injecting a refined rustic feel with a monochrome palette, plenty of natural texture and hits of muted green.
