Back in the summer of 2014 I featured the home next door to me, designed by Grassroots Design + Build. The other day Sarah, a local editor, contacted me to see if I was interested in featuring the 1890’s renovated home of Emma Doucet, who runs Grassroots. Her home is in Hintonburg, a favourite neighbourhood I have lived near for over a decade and I have driven by Emma’s house on many occasions and absolutely love it. Sarah kindly sent me a bunch of photos (by Justin Van Leeuwen) and some info from a story she wrote on this house a couple of years ago. So before I share the photos here are some details… Emma and her husband bought the home in 2006, and 4 months of renovations included a complete redo of the kitchen that opened it to the dining room, and redesign of the bathrooms. Luckily through 4 owners many original featured remained like the dining room mouldings and living room fireplace. The new kitchen includes dreamy custom cabinets and a pressed-tin ceiling. This house is so fun and fresh and has so much character. I LOVE IT!!!
