Designer Robyn Young shows how the classic and the cutting-edge happily mingle in a bright Toronto new-build.

Keeping family friendliness in mind when designing this home, Robyn sticks to a blue and white palette throughout the house. The neutral-toned principal pieces in each room are balanced by quirky and bold designs in the fabrics and in the artwork. Older pieces, like the wooden chairs in the dining room, give character to the space and give a personal connection between the homeowners and their new house.
