Hello Design Crush Readers! I’m Victoria of sfgirlbybay, stepping in for Kelly today. Nice to be here! I thought I’d share one of my favorite decor magazines from the North. Covet Garden is a Canadian online publication you can subscribe to for free, and each time they publish they share just one beautiful home tour. I love Covet Garden‘s concept because it really hones in on the decor details of each of the wonderful homes they feature. This month is no exception – they’re sharing a West Queen West, Toronto-based rustic inner city home – polished but with some lovely rough edges and lots of natural elements. I hope you enjoy it! Drop by Covet Garden for the whole tour!
