A Historical Tudor Home Is Revamped For Modern Living

Designer Julie Charbonneau aims to make living an art. After a tour of her Toronto home, it’s clear she’s succeeded. The historical gem is decorated with a spare, serene touch — a perfect canvas for her collection of scene-stealing contemporary artwork. As much as Julie loved the picture-perfect Tudor façade, she was determined to update the house for modern living without destroying its historical charm, so she kept the original fireplaces, wood panelling, trimwork, leaded glass windows, main-level flooring and the majestic staircase. Because Julie is passionate about contemporary art and photography, she made sure the home’s finishes were subdued, sleek and calming. Click through to see inside her contemporary, glamorous space.
