The floor plan
Toronto newlyweds enlisted designer Ali Budd to help transform the 800-square-foot main floor of their home.
New oak floors were sanded and stained on-site and make the main floor feel more spacious. “We chose a rich brown stain that shows off the wood grain, which is typical of older homes,” says designer Ali Budd.
Geometric broadloom carpeting
Ali had wool and silk geometric broadloom carpeting cut to suit the living room’s long, narrow shape. “You get the perfect size for half the price of purchasing a rug off the showroom floor,” she says. “And perfect proportions are so important.”
