This Art-Filled Toronto New-Build Proves That Contemporary Style Can Be Warm and Welcoming

If you love a sleek, contemporary aesthetic, a new-build property can be the perfect clean slate – but for a house to be a home, you need to layer in a little character. This was the challenge for the homeowners of this new-build townhouse in downtown Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood: their new home was modern and bright, but it lacked personality and warmth. To make the space feel inviting – while staying true to the homeowners’ modern sensibility – designer Jessica McGouran of Jessica Leigh Interiors used art, texture, custom elements and hints of colour to create a true home.
