Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
My apartment is a 590 square foot attic suite in a Victorian Townhome. After living abroad I returned to Toronto for graduate studies, bringing with me a collection of textiles from my travels. Most of the textiles pictured are from Turkey and Estonia, my living room carpet is a 1930 Baltic design handwoven by a relative of mine.
The art work scattered throughout are mostly gifts from friends and artists, I work for a contemporary art gallery. When I moved into this cosy light filled space I knew I wanted a warm and low lying mid-century modern style with a modern flair.
All of the mid century modern furniture is second hand, including a desk that actually belonged to the tailor who originally owned the house.
My father and I did some DIY projects: we re-purposed pallets to make the bed, and salvaged wood from my grandmother's house for the nightstand.
My favorite things about my home are definitely the light, plants and the patio! And having a well-stocked home bar means I am always set for spontaneous entertaining.
