This Toronto Loft in a 100-Year-Old Ex-Factory is the Epitome of Designer Style

When you step into Melissa Agostino and Henry Tyminski’s loft in Toronto’s Little Portugal, it’s impossible not to be struck by the space’s originality. As graphic designers, Melissa and Henry have filled the home with colourful odds and ends: traffic signs from Europe, kitschy collectibles salvaged from flea markets, and a dramatic gallery wall of paint-by-numbers pictures in their original frames. The building was converted from an old factory built in 1917. These days, it looks more like an art gallery thanks to the ultra-high ceilings, plywood tile and thoughtful finishing touches from the two designers-in-residence.
