I am so excited to welcome you into the home of my beautiful and amazingly talented friend Liana! This gorgeous renovated, two-story Toronto house has just the right mix of modern, organic elegance that truly speaks to my heart. Liana designed and decorated every square inch of her home and I have to say that if I could house swap with anyone, it would definitely be her! Each space is so perfect that I wouldn’t change a thing….. and trust me, I’ve walked into many homes with the urge to move things around or even throw some pieces out! {Seriously! Hahaha}


As you walk into the foyer, you will quickly get a sense of Liana’s personal style.  There is a glamorous mirrored console table accented with fresh blooms and gold decor that sets the overall tone for this chic and sophisticated home.  She loves to combine feminine and glamorous finishes with natural and rustic raw materials to create simple yet elegant spaces.


If there were 2 words to describe this space, it would be jaw-dropping! Your eye immediately hits this spectacular floor to ceiling window, bathing the dining room in glorious natural light. Liana’s mix of clean, modern lines, sleek mirrored pieces and minimal rustics strike the perfect balance for this stunning dining room. And let’s just talk about this huge bouquet of pink peonies at the center of the table. Liana grows these precious blooms in her garden and I have never seen a bouquet that was more beautiful!



Where do I even begin? From the carefully coordinated color scheme of silver grey with soft, feminine pops of pink and gold to this stunning art piece of a beautiful white horse above her sofa, every inch of the livingroom is styled to pristine perfection! To soften up these modern lines, she also added a tri-colored cowhide rug beneath her mirrored coffee table which brought an extra dose of warmth into this space. Can you believe that this stunning coffee table, table top decor and all wall art are from HomeGoods? What amazing finds! When decorating, Liana often thinks about her travels around the world for inspiration and styles her spaces to honor those memories.


This sleek, white, beautifully modern bedroom is actually her daughter’s room when she comes home to visit. It also doubles as a guestroom for out of town friends and family…. Isn’t this space just dreamy? She kept the design clean and simple with white walls, a minimalist bed and crisp white textiles to allow the other decorative elements to really stand out. One of my favorite spaces in this room is the desk area where she created a cool and contemporary gallery wall featuring photos of her daughter on vacation. What a brilliant idea!!! The sleek, black ghost chair also adds just the right amount of drama to this soft and relaxed bedroom.



I’ve saved the best for last, ….. welcome to Liana’s spectacular master suite! A simple yet chic color palette of gray coupled with mirrored furniture and a stunning tufted headboard keeps this room ultra modern and swanky. Liana’s favorite piece of furniture is her bed and she was inspired by a luxurious Parisian hotel for her bedroom’s design! She placed cozy faux fur rugs on the floor to provide a plush spot for her feet when getting in and out of bed but also to bring texture and dimension to this space. I especially love the pops of gold with this cool toned color scheme which helps to warm up her room and create contrast.

I asked Liana what she loved the most about interior decorating and her response was…. “I love to add my own personal touches and use the combination of fresh flowers, scented candles and other items including raw and rustic materials to create something unique.  But most of all, I enjoy the satisfaction of coming home to a space that is my dream home.” 

Liana did such a brilliant job decorating her home and I am blown away by every single detail!
I hope you enjoyed this glamorous modern home tour as much as I did.
