Space of the Week: This Designer Transformed Her Beach Retreat From Dark and Dated to Open and Bright
Now that spring has officially sprung, the last thing you want to come home to is a dark space filled with throwback furniture and accessories (and we're not talking the chic, vintage kind, either). The vibrant energy of the season offers just the right push many of us need to modernize and inject life into our interior decor.
One of our favorite examples of this process is a residential rebirth from Toronto designer Tiffany Leigh. The home renovation completely transformed a gloomy beach house into an illuminated, airy oceanside getaway. The results are beyond impressive and show what some serious ingenuity, along with color upgrades, fresh flooring, and updated hardware, can do!
The Beach House Before:
According to Leigh, the home's prior interior contained design relics that could've come straight off the set of That '70s Show, including shag carpeting and dimly lit rooms, plus some majorly outdated cabinetry, window treatments, and furniture. Under Leigh's direction, the home blossomed into a beautiful beach haven that she now uses as her holiday retreat when it's not serving as an Airbnb rental.
