This place not only wins the title of Cool Homes this week because it’s a unique small space, it is also located in Toronto, near Bathurst and Queen! Owners and designers, Claudia Bader, Timothy Mitanidis and Martin Tavares bought this run down boarding house with huge potential in their eyes. They renovated the home into 3 apartments and Claudia and her husband Timothy live in the ground floor unit. It’s 650 square feet of eye candy and they did it on a shoe string budget, sigh! What do you think?
Great idea to extend the 2nd step into an outdoor bench!
Those blue chairs were a Craigslist find
The original floors were salvaged and re-stained
The dining room table and coffee table were designed by Timothy using the salvaged barn boards from the house
The kitchen cabinets were constructed out of concrete formwork and counter tops are poured concrete
Sink made out of a salad bowl,with a plywood ledge, how cool? -Powder room
If you have a cool space or uniquely decorated place you would like me to feature, make sure to contact me!
All you have to do is like their Facebook page and tell them you’re perfect day in Toronto, it’s that easy! My perfect day would be a helicopter tour of the city, followed by a private trip to the Toronto Island, where me and my significant other would have a catered picnic and a bike ride around the island afterwards, what about you?
