Saj, Jez and their kids live in Toronto and sent us these photos of their new combo living, dining and library "great room". Saj writes: In combining our love of color, design, art and a blended family situation when we got married a little over a year ago, we were able to put together something which almost literally did provide therapy for us!

Our living/dining/library room (great room?) has really become a source of calm and order for our family - the kids find it easy to use and tidy as well. Our furnishings, while eclectic, went well together through a tight use of vibrant and interesting color combinations. We took color inspiration from a beautiful shawl from Egypt (used as a table cloth) and an orangey-glazed pottery picked up at a garage sale. While we were a bit hesitant to juxtapose orange with burgundy, we were thrilled with the result.

Thanks, Saj!
