Condo tour: Modern boho chic

A tight budget doesn’t stop this young designer from creating a personality-filled pad.


A builder-boring condo, tight budget and super-busy lifestyle might mean a very dull living space for a lot of people. But not for Jacquelyn Clark, the Lark & Linen blogger and former Style Me Pretty editor who recently launched her own interior design business. With a keen eye for decorating and a talent for transforming bland into beautiful, Jacquelyn turned the 700-square-foot rental condo she shares with boyfriend Justin Gagne in Toronto’s Distillery District into a chic home full of personality.

Living area

The scene-stealer in the living area is the vintage cart-turned-coffee-table picked up for a song. “We found it tucked in the back of a vintage shop, unfinished and missing a few boards,” says Jacquelyn. Boyfriend Justin Gagne completely refinished it.

Dining area gallery wall

An arrangement of artwork and Jacquelyn’s own travel photographs makes up the gallery wall in the dining area. Eames-style chairs pull up to a simple, inexpensive dining table, which sits below a sleek modern pendant light.

Office nook

Painting the bump-­out wall with wide horizontal stripes is a budget­-friendly way to differentiate the office nook from the rest of the living area. Jacquelyn left the feet of the desk unpainted for a stylish dipped look.

Save and splurge design

Like the rest of the condo, the bedroom is a smart mix of save and splurge items. An embroidered coverlet Jacquelyn picked up in India, for example, shares space with toss cushions by Brooklyn-based textile designer Rebecca Atwood.

DIY artwork

The white IKEA nightstand in the bedroom was customized with a new brass knob. Jacquelyn created the artwork above the bed with her own travel photos, which she altered in Photoshop and then had printed.
