Our old place was a great little apartment in the west-end of Toronto – the operative word here being “little”. It was… manageable, for the most part; but with the addition of a fast growing Labrador Retriever named Maxwell, we soon decided we needed a tad bit more space.
I wouldn’t know how to technically define it (there’s that lack of design training for you), but The Old Place was filled with a lot of dark woods, creamy fabrics, and very, very, beige walls. Did I mention how small it was? We had furniture, big furniture, from wall to wall.
Here you’ll find our first tour, that of The Old Place, in all its tiny glory.
|The view from the balcony|
|The bedroom, complete with puppy on the bed|
|The teeny tiny bathroom|
|The claustrophobic kitchen|
|Living room, stuffed to the brim|
|Another view of the living room|
|And finally the "deluxe" of our 1 bedroom deluxe suite,|
the dining room/office/dog crate corner
|But who needs a dog crate when there are|
so many other comfy places to sleep!?
Our next tour showcases The New Place, a bare canvas for us to adorn.
|View of the front in wintertime|
|Luxuriously spacious kitchen|
|The dining room; and it's JUST a dining room!!!|
|The master bedroom; yes, that means there is more than ONE room!|
|The upstairs bathroom; we also have a powder room on the main level..|
this is living!
|The basement den|
|Walkout to the backyard; winter is conveniently hiding|
all the work that was needed for this space.
What do you think?
There are a few things that hubby and I have done with the house; after all, it would be pretty bad if we were still living in an empty place two years later. But I am always looking for inspiration; so, what inspires you? Where would you recommend I go to find new ways to style my home?
