big city small footprint.
i love the home featured in the new issue of covet garden. owners and architects Janna and Dean designed their home to help demonstrate how you can build a sustainable house in the big city — in this case, toronto. But they also show how you don’t have to sacrifice style, comfort or personality in a modern space — there is just so much attention to special details, and a truly eclectic mix of cultures and collections here — appropriately, they like to call it ‘bricolage’ (the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available). i love the industrial-looking light fixture from castor design studio hanging over a heirloom dining table from jenna’s side of the family. you gotta go check out the whole, beautiful space — including a green-living rooftop garden.
