If you read Victoria Smith's blog sfgirlbybay on a regular basis (and really who doesn't - she's a star!) than you may have already seen this house. However I thought it was worth posting again because:a) this house is in Toronto b) it's a Victorian with so many lovely ideas to steal from!!
Let's take a look.
Hello, beautiful rough wood floors, white walls and striking black fireplace with simple bookshelves. If you have ever wondered about painting out your wood fireplace this might be all the inspiration you need.
Is that a Gaetano Sciolari chandelier hanging from the centre of the room? Love! A dramatic light fixture really makes a room.
What do you think? I'm very tempted to have someone come by and paint out all of our baseboards black and maybe paint a few half walls at the same time! I'm getting the itch to change a few things around here (so much easier before I had two kids in the picture.) We'll see.
