This Plant-Filled Bungalow in Northern Ontario is an Instagram-Worthy Oasis

If you happen to drive through Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, you’ll quickly notice a certain style of house. Many were built in the 1950s and 1960s with picture-frame windows, modest gardens and relatively nondescript profiles of siding and brick. So it’s little surprise that Dan and Sophie Nogalo’s house, with its rosé-pink front door and black-and-white colour palette, regularly draws slack-jawed onlookers. It wasn’t always that way. They bought the place in 2016, back when it was just another cookie-cutter bungalow. But with the guidance of local designer Brie Gallagher, a mini-forest of house plants and a $70,000 budget, Sophie and Dan transformed their home into a stylish oasis that rightfully snaps heads.
