In this must-see before and after, designer Joel Bray transforms a good friend’s Toronto home. Using natural light, black accents and plenty of savvy storage solutions, the House & Home alum created a cool, crisp atmosphere fit for entertaining. The bistro kitchen boasts graphic open shelving and IKEA cabinets, while the adjoining dining room wows with a green tufted banquette. You’ll fall in love with the matte black porcelain fireplace, which becomes a sleek focal point — and subtle storage cabinet — on the main floor. Plus, see how the upstairs skylight brings the whole space to life.
