More is more! Designer Cynthia Ferguson takes us inside her 1930s bijou Toronto home saturated with color, pattern and artwork. She shares the dos and don’ts of maximalist design, so be sure to take notes. See how the designer created a statement entryway with bright red paint and playful Cole & Son pattern above the wainscotting. You’ll be inspired to add wallpaper to your ceiling and use the color green in unexpected ways. The kitchen defies expectations with honed marble, blue-black cabinets and a gilt vent hood. Plus, learn how Cynthia made her petite bedroom feel grand and DIY-ed her bathroom walls!
