6 great designer spaces

Gorgeous interior designs and renovations are incredible inspiration for our own homes. They showcase the style and personality of the homeowner, from the colour palette to the accessories. So why not go straight to the source of this inspiration? We've taken a look at a few of our favourite designers who have kindly brought us into their homes. Here are six fabulous designer spaces that we absoutely love.

Tommy Smythe's chic closet is a stylish statement on how to pair the old with the new to create a fabulous space. While Tommy went with new store-bought closet doors, he added vintage knobs for a sophisticated and personalized look. designer-spaces-amanda-nisbet.jpg

Amanda Nisbet's Hamptons home
Canadian-born designer, Amanda Nisbet, uses a variety of pieces and textures in this home for a sophisticated and cozy feel. From the faux bamboo table, to the antique mirror, to the rustic woven rug, Amanda creates beautiful and welcoming living space. designer-spaces-natalie-hodgins.jpg

Natalie Hodgins' bright and bold kitchen
Renovating a small space is tough enough, but it's even more difficult when it's a kitchen. There is an immense need for storage and functionality, making any kitchen design a challenge. For Natalie's 10' x 10' space, every nook and cranny were optimized - and on a budget! Using IKEA kitchen cabinetry, she and her carpenter created a storage bench for seating. She also went with a light, neutral colour scheme to make the most of her small space, but used bright accessories to liven up the kitchen. designer-spaces-feasby.jpg

Erin Feasby's loft design
The one thing Erin Feasby, designer for Feasby & Bleeks, wanted to avoid was creating a typical loft space. To achieve this she went with a chunky wood desk instead of sleek metal. This choice in materials actually "adds warmth and complements the brick," according to Erin. designer-spaces-peter-fallico.jpg

Peter Fallico's dining room makeover
One big change Peter made to the dining room was painting the wainscotting. Though the wood was in fine condition, painting it white brightened up the space and giving it an elegant updated look. Though natural wood is beautiful, sometimes painting it can actually increase the resale value of the home. hanlon-overall.jpg

Christine Hanlon's modern kitchen
In designing her new kitchen, Christine had trouble deciding between a traditional style, which she's always loved, and a more streamlined contemporary style. So she used both! The result is this gorgeous "modern bistro" as Christine calls it. The new kitchen marries sleek modern functionality with classic, vintage accents.
