House Tour: A Cozy Rustic Toronto Apartment

Apr 22, 2015

Well...am I ever thrilled to be sharing another house tour with you today! House tours are my favourite, I love seeing how other people pull together great spaces with things they love.

The Home
This one floor apartment is located on the second floor of a house in Toronto's Little Italy. The home, and this apartment in particular, has an abundance of old building charm with a brick wall, tall ceilings and lovely bay windows.

Prior to moving in, the couple renting the space gave nearly every room a fresh coat of paint. As you will see, they went with cool neutral colours of whites, greys and a navy blue accent wall in the living room. Then they chose their decor and furnishings based on a rustic/country theme. Like most homes, this apartment home is currently a work in progress, but you've been invited to come on in and take a look at how things are coming together to date. Enjoy!

 




Isn't the space beautiful? The homeowners have done a great job of mixing together pieces that each had in previous apartments, as well as vintage store finds. As there is limited square footage and the homeowners both love entertaining, they have easily transformed a bookcase shelf to act as a temporary yet convenient bar. Another way they accommodated for the small space was by choosing a love seat for their seating instead of choosing a full couch or sectional.

Can you believe that the kitchen table was made out of wood from a bowling alley?!

Thanks for taking another tour with me! Check back in tomorrow for updates on our spare bedroom for the One Room Challenge.
