A designer's urban Toronto home with a charming, coastal flair!

Two years ago, when designer Margie Doyle White first saw this 2,200-square-square-foot Toronto home, it was dated and unattractive. However, she saw a huge potential and decided to purchase the home. To achieve her vision, walls were knocked down, oak herringbone flooring was installed and custom millwork was incorporated. The results? Her home is transformed into a bright, open space with a relaxed, seaside-chic vibe. Let's take a look, shall we?

Fresh, beautifully layered with blue accents and natural elements, this home feels fresh with an effortless coastal charm. The bright white walls provide a fresh backdrop for the space while a combination of patterns, materials and textures provide style, personality and visual interest. I am very inspired by this gorgeous home tour, how about you, my lovelies? Any thoughts?


  1. Chic, sophisticated ...just perfect! The herringbone wood floors are carried through to herringbone tile floors in the bath.And then it has my favorite, gold accents!!!! Love it.

  2. Nice! I like white with blue.
