In living colour
After waving a happy goodbye to a drab, rundown kitchen (and living room), my team and I removed the dated '70s floor and installed pine-inspired flooring (it's actually vinyl, scratch-free and a snap to install). Sleek appliances, simple furniture and lots of pattern and colour — bold navy, bright yellow and kelly green — give the once dark and dreary space a modern makeover. We even splurged on a tiny marble counter in the kitchen. The result? A cheerful home that's fresh and sophisticated.
