Chilled-Out California Vibes Inspired This Shared Toronto Home

Let’s get real: buying your dream house (and designing it) can be expensive. Especially when that house is in Toronto’s historic Cabbagetown neighbourhood, populated by Victorian heritage homes and stately turn-of-the-century brownstones. But brothers Dylan and Chris Collie found a way to make their dream home a reality – shared living. With the help of Dylan’s partner, Marketing Director Lauren Purves, they bought a 1920s Cabbagetown gem and split it into two separate living spaces. It’s an affordable arrangement, and it’s allowed them to transform the house into an endlessly sunny, California-inspired pad with touches of vintage charm.
