This week, in our video series The Home Primp, we set out to transform an awkward, underused space in a moderately sized downtown Toronto condo.
The challenge: This condo has a long entryway, which opens up to a wasted space off the kitchen. Because it’s so central (and also next to the owner’s home office), it’s on display at all times. But, the free space meant that it had become a landing pad/storage area for the owner’s clutter.
How we primped it: Chatelaine home editor Alexandra Gater used her five tried-and-true styling solutions to outfit this space: a beautiful light, a cozy rug, lots of texture (hello, plants!) some fun, custom art and reusing existing furniture in a different way. Don’t want to drop $200? Don’t worry — even making use of just one of these elements will spruce up a boring corner in your home.
How much we spent: $199
