Each designer was given a 10x10 booth space at Toronto's National Home Show & a budget of $4,000 to spend at Urban Barn, with the simple instructions to design a room. Each room is a testament to how a talented designer or stager can, within a budget work with Urban Barn's vast products to create an incredible space. We hope these designs inspire you to create your own personal retreat.
