In this three-part series, see the top-to-bottom renovation of designer Shirley Meisels 1960s home in midtown Toronto.
Suzanne Dimma discusses the design behind Shirley’s main floor makeover. Discover her design secrets, the biggest reno obstacle she faced and more!
Shirley maintained the home’s ’60s retro style by revamping some of the home’s original pieces, but modernized the space with contemporary finishes. The result is an open-concept space that feels bright and mod. Statement paintings and artwork dress up the dark walls, adding a cool vibe to the vintage meets contemporary aesthetic.
