Inside a decorator's fresh and charming heritage home in Ontario!


This beautiful 1800s, 2,800-square-foot house in Ontario belongs to decorator and homeowner, Cynthia Weber that she shares with her husband, Kent. When they purchased the house, many of the finishes and materials were a mishmash and needed attention. To transform the house into a livable abode, the interiors were ripped and gutted. Let's check out the results of the transformation, shall we?

How lovely is this home? The walls, millwork and wood floor were painted white to bring in more light. A healthy dose of black elements grounds the home and creates a sense of timelessness. Meanwhile, a few colorful accents create visual interest. The wooden ceiling in the kitchen and wood furnishings provide warmth, coziness and charm to the space. Such a beautiful abode inside and out, what's not to love? Are you drawn to anything from this wonderful tour as well? I would love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Hi Jessie,
    what a beautiful home. I always love to see how designers treat their own homes. I noticed one interesting thing.....The two chairs by the sofa in the living room don't match....but their matching pair are placed at the dining table. Now that's fun!!!
