Name: The Murrays
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Size & Type: 530 sq. ft. one bedroom condo
Favorite resource: "Craigslist, Ebay, Lee Valley Hardware, Canadian House & Home Magazine and Schoolhouse Electric."
Pitch: "A job transfer and an unexpected move back to the city forced us to downsize to a one bedroom condo. We started with a bland and boring space and way too much stuff. The process of evaluating and eliminating unnecessary items was a really positive one for us, setting a strong foundation for the rest of our design plan."
Pitch Cont'd:"We chose a warm colour palette and painted throughout which made a dramatic change. Layering the space with curtains, rugs and new bedding created depth, while the finishing touches such as personal photographs breathed soul into our little nest. "
Your favorite element: "The Lighting; it creates instant mood."
