The price of condos in Toronto has sky-rocketed and sometimes it's just a matter or getting into the market so that you can upgrade at a later date. If that means a studio apartment for you, it doesn't have to mean you can't have it all. In this studio condo on a really tight budget, we managed to squeeze in; a bedroom with a queen sized bed, a TV area, a dining area and even an office area! It's all a matter of space planning and keeping things cohesive. This is a rental unit for one lucky person!!

It occurred to me that I am a kitchen and bathroom junky, always pinning photos to my pinterest pages of these very important rooms in the house. But now I need a new sofa and I'm perplexed! Yes, I have a board on pinterest with living room photos, but none of it is as clear to me as my ideals in a bathroom or kitchen. Oh what to do! In preparation for my own personal living room, I have concluded only one thing - I like a simple slipcovered sofa. So what about the rest? Rustic? Modern? Shabby?... I like so many things it's hard to choose!
Have a look:
