Spadina House Green Room
I showed you a pic of the exterior of Spadina House here back in April and this weekend was Doors Open Toronto which is a weekend when over 100 buildings in the city are open to wander through, many of which are not usually open to the public. Spadina House is a museum open all the time but this seemed a good time to check out the interior which has been totally & lovingly restored to its 1920s-30s state. This is one of the rooms from the original structure built in 1818 and I thought you could all use a break from my modern laneway houses! The last surviving member of the Austin family left all the furnishings when the house was handed over to the city in 1978. Beautiful isn't it?
