Canadian singer Megan Bonnell and her husband purchased a home in an urban neighborhood of Toronto. They searched for a designer on Houzz and discovered Lisa Lev, who turned out to be a great fit. Lev helped the couple infuse their plain, all-white space with their personalities and tastes. The designer grouped furniture and decor to divide the long, skinny ground floor of the couple’s home into three distinct zones: kitchen, living and dining.
In the initial consultation, Lev likes to chat with her clients to get to know them, which helps her understand their tastes. “What came out of that is they love California,” Lev says.
The designer proposed placing a large mural of a Northern California forest in the living room, and Bonnell loved the idea, as the California scene also reminds her of the Ontario countryside where she grew up. The 8-foot-tall mural is mounted on medium-density fiberboard.
