House of the week: 78 Farnham Avenue

'Modern,' 'minimalist' and 'monochromatic' are the three words I would use to describe this home. The main floor is open concept and is so expansive that it’s almost barren, but I personally like the clean aesthetic. 

78 farnham ave torontoThe kitchen cabinets blend into the wall so seamlessly that it’s almost like the kitchen isn’t there. It’s sleek and outfitted in all top-of-the-line Miele appliances.

78 farnham ave torontoThe main floor has a bit of a modern condo feel, with the only source of natural light coming from the back of the house with a large wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the backyard.
