Homes & Tours

Take a close-up look at real Offbeat Homes of all shapes, sizes and flavors.

You won’t believe this nature-inspired, storage-MacGyver, Toronto studio renovation

My studio is nine by ten feet. Ninety square feet. That’s it. There was no closet, and I had a queen size bed to accommodate. I love interior decorating, and I especially love a good small space living/storage design challenge, so having my own little room to rent and play with was a perfect opportunity to flex that muscle while keeping costs relatively low…
