Get the Look Decor: Whitewashed handmade and vintage goods

ChristineThis weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Toronto apartment of Anabela and Geoff, where they live with their two cats Oreo and Pony. While Anabela’s decorating aesthetic runs a bit on the girly side, Geoff’s preference for a more masculine, rustic cabin style creates a harmonious balance. Their home is decorated with a muted color palette, which allows their antique market finds and thrift store accents to stand out from the white walls and shelving.

The couple enjoy a magical 35 minute stroll to work from their home in the Dufferin Grover area of Toronto. Anabela receives daily compliments from their lovely 91-year-old neighbor and they take in the smells of chocolate from the nearby Cadbury factory. Anabela says she enjoys her home’s southern exposure, which creates the perfect atmosphere for enjoying a book from the couple’s ever-growing book collection.
