The master bedroom is one of the larger rooms in the house, and at first Sacha and Melissa were overwhelmed by the size. But by creating this cozy reading nook on one side and filling each corner with items of interest, they manage the space and keep it from feeling too large.
As soon as they got the keys to their new home, Sacha and Melissa knew that they had to paint everything as soon as possible. "We were literally painting as we moved in because we hated the colors so much," says Melissa.
They used a soothing neutral color palette as a base in the family room, with modern pops of bright white and green.

The living room and joined dining room are the first main rooms visible when entering the house, so Melissa and Sacha spent quite a bit of time playing with its layout. A mix of ottomans, a small sofa, and a plush chair provide the perfect amount of seating. Art by Sacha — who is also a graphic designer — was designed for this room.

The joined living/dining rooms make up the couple's favorite space. "Since they're both the least-used rooms, they stay nearly picture perfect all the time, and they feel great walking into," says Sacha. "Some people might not agree that some of their least-used rooms are their favorites, but hey!"
Pendant: GLOBE from Structube
Although they had a limited budget, the generous wedding gifts they received allowed Sacha and Melissa to spend a little more than usual on the dining chairs, dining table, and living room couch. "We really enjoyed wandering through stores for inspiration," Sacha says.
