Before & After: A Tudor-style House Is Revived With Bold British Style

Susan and Greg MacKenzie were looking to refresh their Tudor-style house in Toronto’s west end. On the hunt for a designer, Susan found Cynthia Ferguson while scrolling Instagram — she loved her style and color sensibility. When they compared notes about what excited them, they found a shared love of hotelier Kit Kemp’s exuberant British style. Susan knew Cynthia would be the perfect designer to inject vibrance into her neutral rooms. “We shared an appreciation of that British style, but I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do it on my own,” says Susan. Cynthia took her new clients’ already beautiful home to the next level by adding layers of color and pattern in the foyer, dining room and principal ensuite. Here, they share their perspectives on the colorful makeover, which was finished in less than four months.
