Home tour- A tailored and timeless Victorian makeover!

Toronto designer and HGTV star, Tommy Smythe needs no further introduction. In this design project, he successfully revived this historic Victorian with his tailored and trendy approach with what he calls a "new Victorian" look. The results? A timeless look that will never go out of style. Let's take a look at this beautiful home below.













Stylishly decorated with a mix of mostly classic pieces with a few modern pieces and layered with bold geometric patterns with pops of color, this eclectic Victorian home looks elegant and fresh at the same time. I am particularly drawn to the beautiful kitchen, the sitting area and the bedroom. What about you?  Do you have a favorite room as well? What are your thoughts on Tommy's play on pattern? Do you find it refreshing or too bold for your taste? I would love to know.

  1. Love this place! Especially that bedroom with the dark beautifully designed curtains, and that gorgeous bedding. Great mix of greens and greys used too! Have been seeing that bathroom pop up everywhere on Pinterest, glad to finally know the source :)

  7. I think this home is amazing and designed to perfection. It's so sophisticated, yet has wonderful elements to show it doesn't take itself to seriously. For example- the red chair in the kitchen...love it!

  10. Bold but great. I especially like the room with the grass cloth wall coverings and the chevron panels.

  13. He is just adorable - and obviously a fan of the zigzag! I love his style - he pushes it - but not too far.

  14. This home has tons of personality! I like bold but not too much bold. I think I would get tired of such extremes. He did do an incredible job!
