Striking contrast and eclectic accessories give our design editor's Toronto apartment effortless flair.
Jessica Waks' place is so saucy one expects Mae West to suddenly sashay across the room. Evoking the glitz of Old Hollywood, this Toronto apartment features a peculiar mix of decor
that swirls together in one glorious, uplifting burst: old-world paintings, colourful pop art, vintage
furniture, shadow boxes containing Jessica's late grandmother's makeup compacts - even taxidermy butterflies. "Our apartment has the look and feel of a bygone era but with modern touches," says Jessica, who shares her digs with two sphynx kittens and one very accommodating fiance, David Goodman.Meet the homeowners
