Our First House (Condo) Tour

Welcome to Simcoe Street!
Actually, we are no longer living on Simcoe Street, but we had a blast while we were there. On a very tight budget, we turned a small condo into a great first home in Toronto. Enjoy the tour!


 Living/Family/Dining Room
(The next few are before we swapped out the dresser for a bookcase and oodles of toys)
(And now back to the bookcase)
Over the years we added the dining area, changed out the old brass light fixture, painted the builder oak cabinets white, painted the pink walls a moody grey, and added a small gallery wall of dollar store frames. Eventually we upgraded the cabinet hardware to some pretty crystal knobs, too.

Which became Benjamin's Toddler Room
(the photos below are truer to how it often looked)

  1. Beautiful home! I absolutely LOVE the rug in your living room... it's beautiful. I'd be tickled if you'd link up at this week's Off the Hook!

  2. You have such a beautiful home! It is so homey ( not something you would expect from a condo) yet so stylish.

  3. yes, love the area rug in the dining room. where did you get it?

    1. Thanks Lindsey! It is from HomeSense (the Canadian version of Home Goods).

  4. What a beautiful condo you had! I'm sure your new home will be just as beautiful when you are done with it!

  5. Oh! I am so glad to have found your blog!!! I love reading blogs of fellow Canadians! Cant wai to read more...

  6. Both of your houses are fantastic! I've been drooling over your wide spaces and simple interior designs. I love the fact that you've been taking the best care of your house. Well, I just hope I can find a new house that's as cozy as this. Hehe! Thanks for this house tour! I'll pin your photos and use them as inspiration for my new designs. :)
