Jennifer and Darryl knew they had a design dilemma on their hands when they moved into their single-family home in Grimsby, Ontario. The living room had an off-center fireplace, which made it difficult to arrange the furniture, and the dining room sat completely empty, painted an off-putting shade of burgundy. The couple sought the help of Claire Jefford, a certified interior decorator and owner of Creating Contrast Designs. Together they injected easy and casual elegance into the living room and dining room, creating welcoming spaces for friends and family to gather.
