How Daring Colours and Antique Treasures Transformed This Designer’s Roncesvalles Rental

When designer Jenn Hannotte went looking for an apartment to rent for herself and her two daughters, she lucked out. The first place she saw, a beautiful old house in Toronto’s trendy Roncesvalles neighbourhood, ticked all her boxes. It had all its original trim, hardwood floors and plenty of wide windows. The only catch: since she was renting, Jenn couldn’t do any major renovations. That meant that features she wasn’t so thrilled about – such as the hulking brick fireplace in the living room – would have to stay. As a designer, Jenn wasn’t phased by the challenge. By painting the walls in dramatic hues of purple and decorating the space with a playful mix of vintage treasures and modern pieces, Jenn transformed her rental into a warm, eclectic space fit for her family.
