The place

A two-bedroom condo with a French streak.

The story

The owner’s travels to France inspired the apartment’s je ne sais quoi. She gutted the kitchen to add new cabinetry and an island with white quartz countertops:


She also replaced the unit’s sliding doors with proper doors, which she painted French blue to match the couches. She’s selling the place so she can move closer to her job, outside Toronto.

Big selling point

Interior design fans will appreciate the attention to detail, like the velvet, black-and-white-striped wall covering in the living room, or the light-up butterfly hall:


Plus, the master bedroom is positioned on the building’s corner, which means plenty of sunlight through two sets of windows:


Possible deal-breaker

There’s not a lot of space for a dining table. The owner uses the large kitchen island.
