Before & After: A 100-Year-Old Victorian Semi Gets Zhuzhed Up!

See how designer Keeley McCleary brings clever and luxe updates to her client’s long and narrow downtown Toronto semi. The neutral living room transitions from day to night with retractable bifold pocket doors that hide the TV during cocktail hour. Don’t miss the showstopping fireplace wall that wows with Calacutta Viola marble, and the Thomas O’Brien chandelier that gets a new lease on life.

Design: Keeley McCleary

  1. Stunning! Although the neutral colour these designers often go for, is boring and bland.

  2. The zhuzhing is fabulous alright! There's just a lot of dead space between the window seat and the other seating grouping. The cabinets just make it seem more empty.

  3. I love that it so stylish yet looks different from everything else everyone is doing.
    That TV cabinet/fireplace and the window seat are perfection. I instantly want to read a book there.
    And just because I’m an a$$, I’ll give the minimal rising intonation and vocal fry a 6 out of 10.
