When Michelle Mawby, the newly appointed design expert on CTV’s The Marilyn Denis Show, gutted her century-old Toronto home seven years ago, her goal was to create an open-concept showcase for her decorating talents. “It was an old house with boxes for rooms,” says Mawby, a native of Richmond, B.C. who also runs her company, Lucid Interior Design Inc., out of the midtown home. “I opened the whole thing up and added a large rear addition, where I transplanted the living room from the front of the house. I wanted the house to feel less traditional.”
French doors opening onto a landscaped garden flood the room with natural light, which is why Mawby, a resident of Europe until eight years ago, calls it her favourite: “It’s elegant enough to entertain in, but also comfortable enough to live in.”
