House Tour {Canadian Family Home}

How refreshingly cheerful is this Toronto family home? I love how the colour pallette of yellow, white and green has brightened each room.

So what's on my lovely list?

* The picture frame wall in the dining room
* The drum-barrel light fitting and DIY headboard in the bedroom
* Louis style chair, which was falling apart but has been lovingly restored to pristine condition - what a find!
* Mosaic tile work in the kitchen - plus it's an IKEA kitchen!
* The living room has been cleverly done on a budget; you would never guess that the sofa is from a garage sale and that it has slip covers over the cushions. And the arm chairs have been reupholstered after being found on Craigslist for $90 - very impressive.

This renovation has definitely provided me with some much needed inspiration for our apartment...Still unfinished! Hope this has brightened your Wednesday much as it has mine :)
