Living in Motion WHERE THE FINAL STEP OF THE RENOVATION PROCESS IS ACTUALLY HIS FIRST BY KRISTINA More than any renovation, what has really transformed our house are those living under its roof. When my husband and I purchased this fixer-upper a year ago, we thought the most significant improvements would happen with the swing of a hammer. But since welcoming baby Jack into the world, home has taken on new meaning. Once a place to simply enjoy our favourite TV shows, the living room now stands up to its name. One minute, the sofa’s armrest holds a mug of hot tea, and at another, it’s a spot for Jack to rest his head. Filled with versatile and resilient pieces, it proudly takes on feedings, crafts, stains and snacks. I once thought elbow grease was the price of admission for a dream home, but the truth is that what makes this place so perfect is the rug which becomes an imaginary highway for toy cars, the coffee table which becomes craft central, and the loveseat—which admittedly sees a lot more love than it does sitting.
