A light color scheme and tall window treatments make the room look and feel spacious. The bed is equipped with a hydraulic system to provide hidden storage space to keep things organized and out of sight, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Too.

In Hilary's design for this formal living room, as seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, she brings in lots of patterns and textures to give the room a unique and complex look. The design takes advantage of old world luxury in pieces such as the chandelier hanging from the ceiling, the complex mantelpiece, the Victorian wingback furniture, and the intricate cabinetry. She then blends a mixture of patterns like stripes and paisley together for a completed look.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new living room, located just off the front door entrance, occupies the old kids room and front parlour.

New overhead lighting, window treatments, and personal effects of the home owners give the room a modern but eccletic look.
Connecting the kitchen and the dining room by tearing down a wall made way for open eating areas at the new breakfast bar and around the table, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It. A built-in bench by the window provides extra seating without taking up extra space.
