Home renovation creates a modern Beach house in Toronto

When you live in a 126-year-old house that’s been only moderately updated over the years, you learn to live with some discomforts.

For Shelley and Paul Williams, that meant warning guests to wear extra layers in the winter because their Toronto house in the Beach was completely uninsulated. Navigating the gaps between the creaky hardwood floors. Getting dressed by the glow of a flashlight in the upstairs hallway because the bedroom closet was tiny and the feeble ceiling lights didn’t make a dent in the dark, windowless passageway. Then there was the worrisome knob-and-tube wiring and ancient plumbing that lurked behind the plaster walls.

For years, the couple debated making small changes or gutting the place to modernize it. Then they reached a fork in the road.

5 Creative Ideas For Styling Your Antique Home Decor

When collecting and decorating antique pieces, it can be easy to get carried away. One minute you have found a few delightful-looking glasses to display in your living room, and before long, your room resembles a circus-type hall of mirrors. Depending on how you decorate a room or even what shade of paint you use, it can create a variety of emotions. From soothing vibes to an atmosphere more conducive to lively interactions, you are ultimately in control of the feel of each room. So before you overdo it on antiquities, there’s a simple design ratio that can help to curb your passions.

By taking stock of each room, you should find that it follows the 80/20 rule. This means that 80% of your room will be dedicated to following a certain style, and the remaining 20% can be either accent pieces or antiques, according to Canadian artist

Kindred Is Raya for Home-Swapping

Kindred is emphatic that it’s not Airbnb. Instead of a place for listing your home (or the investment property you bought to turn into a bachelor-party abyss) as a vacation rental, Kindred advertises itself as a “members-only community for home swapping.” No money is exchanged — except cleaning and service fees and a $300 annual membership. The start-up, which launched earlier this year after raising $7.75 million in a seed-funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, claims to be agnostic about the homes it features: The properties can be big or small, rented or owned, as long as they are “safe, well-cared-for homes occupied by people who love to travel.” But these well-cared-for homes — a Sausalito retreat with built-ins and views of the bay; an apartment in Mexico City’s La Condesa with a window wall leading out onto a terrace — mostly look like the
