Let there be light! The kitchen is the heart of the home so it’s a bonus when you can have an open concept to more living zones. This once multiple room traditional home in the east end of Toronto has now become a functioning family living space. Having the open concept now means you can gather in two great spaces simultaneously, whether you are hosting and tending to kitchen duties while still conversing with guests, or watching over the entire family. Functionality gives a whole new meaning to style. Follow these tips to create flow and décor symmetry when designing in an open concept. Let there be light! The homeowner knew they needed new windows and doors so that was our next step after opening up the walls. The small existing back doors didn’t allow a lot of natural light in or the view of the backyard. We created an 11’ door and windows opening to achieve the WOW factor when Jo Alcorn light you walk into the space. The amount of natural Darin bed &  pillow collection. of tripled, making the backyard feel like an extension the space which added visual real estate to the entire layout. We chose a great Canadian company that makes, manufactures, delivers and installs windows and doors in Toronto. Total Home Window and Doors is one of the largest window and door manufacturers in Canada and, as an added bonus, they offer a lifetime warranty on their products.

Another important feature in a kitchen is the faucet, a gem that I find people often overlook. I love to educate my clients about the importance of a great faucet and all that it can do for the space. I love the Delta Trinsic single handle pull faucet with Touch20 technology in matte black. It adds just the right amount of drama to a kitchen.



Countertops come with all different price tags. If you have a large surface area, like a island, you want to make sure counter tops are on your spurge list. Islands are a a focal point within a kitchen and the most common gathering space, so make sure you love what you are getting because you will be looking at it every single day. I love the look of these Caesarstone Quartz countertops from Beyond Marble and Granite. From fabrication to installation, BMG provided top-of-the-line service for this project. For this project I discovered a new cabinet company called Fine Line Kitchens. Their goal is to work closely with their clients to deliver the best possible design and craftsmanship from start to finish. It’s evident from their finishing work that they have been pros in the business for over 35 years. The hidden gems behind the white shaker style doors is the home owners' favorite part of the cabinets, with soft closing drawers, organization systems, and even a hidden drawer fridge, life is just that much easier when everything has the perfect home. Any time you can bring the outside in and add a touch of rustic to a space jump on the opportunity. In this space we chose a gorgeous raw suar wood table from Artemano with matching benches for large a large family to gather around. The rustic table will help disguise the family's wear and tear plus it becomes a beautiful focal point which helps moves the eye around the entire open concept kitchen. Lighting is also key in a kitchen, as it becomes hanging art and a staple within the overall design concept. I went with a more industrial look pendant over the island to tie in the industrial beams, and then matched it with two round industrial, traditional lights for the over the table. Lighting can be a great way to tie in themes, as did these, marrying the transitional rustic to industrial, for a very unique and coherent look. PAGE 9


Home to Win 2 I had too much fun on the set of HGTV Home to Win Season 2 with Mile Holmes Jr. where we transformed the Theater Room together and kicked butt in the ice carving competition! I also had fun mixing in some of my lighting and pillows for the lucky family who won the home!


Did You Know? The Lori cubes are named after my sister-in-law who is the most laid-back person ever and can fit in anywhere or play any role. They are perfect for resting your feet on, as extra sitting or using as an accent table with a tray on them.
