Jenn lives in Toronto, and she shares the kitchen with her two young daughters. The funny thing about Jenn's kitchen is that it is actually a temporary design solution — she is waiting until she can afford to go all out. Until then, she enjoyed the opportunity to create a style in the kitchen that was, "a little more personal." She didn't have to worry about what anyone else thought or think about investment or future house buyers. And, obviously, she had to do something truly cost-effective.
Jenn told me that she loved that someone in the comments said that it was "great Canadian design" — because that's so it: She was going for a rustic, vintage and relaxed aesthetic.
