Toronto Loft

Tips and tricks for small spaces from designer Erin Feasby:
  • Do focus attention away from the size by highlighting a home's best feature; here, custom drapery shows off the loft's outstanding windows.
  • Do be brave and customize the space to your needs. For example, Erin nixed the master ensuite in favour of a walk-in closet equipped with washer and dryer. Brilliant!
  • Don't over furnish. Go for quality pieces that suit the space, but don't relegate yourself to apartment-size everything -- mix it up.
  • Do consider the visual bulk of furnishings. Transparent pieces, like a glass coffee table, are great because they can virtually disappear.
  • Don't equate uncluttered with boring. Add personality by choosing bold accessories, like patterned cushions.
