Interior Design – See Inside A Creative Family’s Artsy City Home



Artist Mark Puchala and his wife, Canada Goose creative director Michelle Donnelly, transformed a run down semi in Toronto’s West End into a creative and comfortable family home. See how they combined interesting art with a unique mix of furniture and finishes to create a space fit for family life with their 8-year-old son, Jack.

When they found the semidetached Victorian, it was run down and abandoned, but that didn’t stop the style-savvy couple from purchasing it. Working with an architect, they renovated the main floor to create an open kitchen and family room. With sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard, it’s the perfect chill zone for entertaining. An outdoor oasis, complete with a modern pool and patio set, acts as an extension of the indoors. A mix of high and low, vintage and classic pieces bring the rest of the space to life.

  1. I love this home. it's super cozy yet modern and artsy. which in my opinion is the perfect combination. I really like all of the interesting and unique pieces they have. it's the type of home I could spend all day in just looking at everything. I especially love that vignette at the top of the stairs. very cool.

  2. I don't want my home to be [feel or look like] a museum nor an art gallery but as long as they are having fun it's good 😃

  8. What price

  9. Mariyeen Acheege

    I can't believe how sterile all of this channel's interiors are. There's a veneer of ice to all of these properties.

  10. This guy talks like a valley girl teenybopper.

  11. Stunning. Incredibily stylish creative people. Most impressed.

  12. I love the picture of the pig flying into the river

  13. I love this house!

    love it!!!
    …i also love how realistic these videos are.
    i mean i can totally buy a new home, then demo it, then hire an architect, and renovate & redecorate the entire thing, all while living the sweet, easy, awesome life of an artist, raising a child AND still have money leftover for food, bills, the essentials AND frequently entertaining guests. ohhh surrre not a problem. (insert sarcastic eyeroll).
    …i mean really! do these people not have a fuckin clue?? ….jesus. it sickens me.
    the average person could never be able to afford this shit. i can barely pay my utility bills let alone do anything this elaborate. buying a few gallons of paint is literally considered a splurge for me!!! but oh yeah let me get right on making my home look like this. 😒 like i said very realistic. …wow.

    Love this – great job guys!! Love the best hang and the idea of kids and adults integrating together. Perfect lively home.

  19. Fantastic! You can feel the love in this family,and,of course,it reflects outside.

  20. It's not my style, but it's nice to see h&h finally showcase a home with some personality. H&H feature too many showcase homes that never looked lived in, in my opinion.

  21. Karla Dreyer Design

    This is such a cool space!

  22. Oh… Jesus, Mary, Joseph and our God! 😮😍 I'll then have to double check, but this may be my favorite house and decor uploaded so far on this channel. 😍😍😍

  23. One of the most stunning houses I've seen on this channel. I love everything about it.

  24. At the .58 second mark, the dresser in the bedroom with the faucet on the wall and sink in the dresser was stunning, beautiful and such a fantastic idea. Loved it!

  25. perfect

  26. that dog <3

  27. Love it! One of the few houses i actually like! So cool and fresh!

  28. that Keroppi on the wall!!❤❤😆

    This is one of the few houses that I actually loved. I liked the zebra rug thrown partly over another rug, it was unexpected. I think layering that odd piece into a mix sometimes is something many people don't appreciate but that's what sets things apart for me. Not basic. I love it.

  30. ME-Tube Your Space!

    Only like the exterior of the house, but the interior designs were too busy for my liking.

  31. that's gorgeous. the only thing that doesn't tally in my mind is that zebra printed rug in the middle of two extremely busy colours (that purpley coloured sofa and the carpet) in the dining area…. but other than that, I extremely loved it!

  32. Ignacio Martínez Argüello

    VERY interesting house!!!

  33. That's a GORGEOUS house… very beautifully done up! ❤
