Combined with concrete floors (one of my fave design elements), industrial-chic Edison bulbs, rustic wood details and an exposed ceiling—not to mention a second gallery wall with the same messy arrangement—and I’m about ready to move in.To see all of this year’s Ovation Awards winners, visit ovationawards.ca
