Because they weren’t bringing much from
their previous home aside from mementos
and family photographs, Walters helped the
couple find flexible furnishings that pack
plenty of function and style. For instance,
in the guest room, a daybed piled with
fluffy pillows features a pop-up trundle
that can accommodate as many as three
grandchildren at a time for sleepovers.
“They think it’s neat that grandmother
and grandfather live so close by,” says Carole.
And clearly, she and John agree, iffli
This curvy lamp is a cheap
buyoffthe Internet that
brings sophistication to
the bedside table.
With its soft, soothing
colours and feminine
touches, the master
bedroom feels like “a little
sanctuary,” says Carole.
"You look out into the
garden, and you don’t
really hear the sounds of
the city. You hear birds or
the cat next door.”
