Imagine a moment taking on not one, but two major renovations in a span of just 18 months. Now imagine you’re preparing for the birth of your first child, too. That’s exactly the position John Baker and Juli Daoust-Baker, who own Toronto design store Mjölk, found themselves in during the summer of 2011. In fact, it was the news they would soon be parents that gave the couple the push they needed to start updating their west-end Toronto apartment and, later, their Georgian Bay guest cottage. “We didn’t set out to have back-to-back renovations,” says John. “But after we had kids, we realized we needed a second space here for our extended family and friends to stay.”
