Outside e Box Four ways to break small-space rules.

Small & Mighty This year marks House & Home’s 30th anniversary, and we’re so excited to be celebrating in our special November issue. It was while we were reviewing our archives that I realized we’ve put out a Small Spaces issue for at least 23 of those years, and many of those were top sellers! With more and more condos filling urban landscapes and minimizing our “footprints” being top of mind, living small only seems to be growing in popularity. But is it more difficult to decorate in a compact space? One thing I’ve noticed is that people worry more about sticking to the “rules” in tiny quarters. I get it: less square-footage means no room for error — and any mistakes could make your home feel even tighter. For me, though, the most memorable spaces are the ones that boldly break the rules. Small, for instance, doesn’t mean that you have to paint every wall white to make a space look bigger. Dark walls create drama and celebrate small’s inherent cosiness. And while going minimal seems logical, collections of personal objects are especially impactful in a small home — and so much more interesting than the expected Zen approach. So whether you’re already living small or thinking of downsizing, take your cue from the homeowners in this issue and have the courage to do your own thing. Dream big, and the rest will fall into place.

YOU CAN GO DARK Designer Philip Mitchell’s former condo is one of my all-time favourite small spaces. I love the way he painted his den in a dark khaki (Fatigue Green, 2140-10, by Benjamin Moore) for a warm and moody vibe.

YOU CAN MIX BOLD PATTERN A riotous combination of patterns is even more dramatic in a small space, as seen in Sabrina Albanese’s condo (page 66). Fabrics (from top): Swaisland Stripe by Lee Jofa; Citrus Garden by Schumacher, Bilbrough & Co.; 33626.5 by Kravet.

YOU CAN HAVE OPEN SHELVES A piece that incorporates both open and closed storage is great for cramped quarters. Pace étagère, DwellStudio. SEE SHOPPING LIST

MARK BURSTYN Photographer, “Small is Elegant” (page 70) Where do you call home? My family of three fits perfectly in our 800-square-foot bungalow in central Toronto. Decorating tips to make small spaces feel bigger? In our house, we removed non-load-bearing walls to improve flow and used lighter paint colours to make the space feel brighter. For the decor, we also used lighter tones and went for apartment-sized pieces, like our sofa, which keeps the space from feeling cramped. 16 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

NANCY CARR Writer, “Style Files: Shop” (page 25) Smallest space you’ve lived in? A studio apartment in Chicago. Every morning, I’d fold up my futon to transform my bedroom into my living room. Any small-space living tips? When I lived in a small condo with a tiny kitchen, I sacrificed cupboard space for a small dishwasher — a great place to store dirty dishes and clean ones, too! How do you reduce clutter? I’m pretty judicious about which of my kids’ art projects we keep. Unless they’re very special, most get quietly filed in the recycling bin, and no one seems to notice.

YOUR LETTERS OUR READERS HAVE THEIR SAY. It’s been several years since I read a copy of House & Home, so I was pleased to pick up the June issue. I enjoy your magazine from the do-it-yourself projects, to the perfect hamburgers, to the interior design features in between. It has a quality I can’t quite define, but am pleased with. — SARA BLEDSOE I indulged in the “simple pleasures” of Lynda Gardener’s airy, bright and happy Melbourne-area weekend home (“Indulging in Simple Pleasures,” July). What a wonderful article and terrific photography, especially when juxtaposed with those endless “cottages” in the Muskokas. Kudos for reaching into a totally refreshing cottage genre. More, more, more! — LISA MCKEAN

Yesterday, my neighbour gave me the June issue of H&H, and I was delighted to read Suzanne’s letter to readers and see a more relaxed version of the magazine. I hope the majority of your loyal fans will be pleased with the metamorphosis your team envisages. This edition was a really good read. — ALENA SCHRAM I was pleasantly surprised to read Suzanne’s opinion in “Signs of Life,” (“Editor’s Page,” June). It’s so refreshing to have someone in the profession mention the lack of personality in many shelter magazine layouts. The pages where I find inspiration almost always have some quirky personal touch. Thanks for recognizing this and putting your words into action with House & Home. — LINDA HERNDON

When Jennifer Jackson opened Home Smith just minutes from her west Toronto home last winter, she knew her clients would be her friends and neighbours. She knew they’d bring their design ideas and furniture wishes, as well as their strollers, children and pets, to her store. “We’re really focused on the neighbourhood,” says Jennifer. “We understand that our homeowners here need durable, kidfriendly, dog-friendly pieces that are within budget, so we help them choose wisely.” Home Smith — named after Robert Home Smith, the early 20th-century developer who spruced up Toronto streetscapes by creating verdant neighbourhoods — is an eclectic mix of timeless furniture, vintage rugs, arresting artwork and of-the-moment accents. Hot offerings include carpets and pillows from Denmark’s Day Birger et Mikkelsen, and handmade Chinese porcelain vases from Middle Kingdom. Jennifer doesn’t think of herself as a designer so much as a treasure hunter. “It’s easy to find expensive beautiful things; I embrace the challenge of finding beautiful things with surprisingly small price tags.”

Roost Apartment Hotels The best of home-sharing and high-end hotel living combine for a stylish stay in Philadelphia. Imagine your fashionable friend had an apartment with all the amenities of a hotel and needed you to house-sit for a week or even a month. That’s the feeling Morris Adjmi Architects (the firm behind Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel) invoked for Roost’s two extended-stay hotels, Rittenhouse and Midtown, in Philadelphia — the latest of which opened

this year. Every studio, one- or two-bedroom, and penthouse suite is uniquely decorated with fine art, vintage rugs and potted plants. “Each place feels collected and lived-in,” says lead designer Chris Taylor. Daily comforts include walk-in rain showers, king-size beds and Apple TV. Design fans will spot lighting by Roll & Hill, furniture by Chelsea Textiles and linens by Sferra. LITTLE LUXURIES: Apartments are stocked with La Colombe coffee

beans and the top-end gadgets ($750 worth!) to brew them into a five-star cup of joe. A “coffee concierge” can even be called for a lesson. Cocktail kits and Vero Water stations quench without caffeine. AT YOUR SERVICE: Roost Midtown boasts a curated lending library. Pet services and a bike-share program are offered at both locations. Onebedrooms from approx. $291/night. Minimum seven-day stay. Visit myroost.com.

The fun thing about this project is that you can play with all sorts of colours and patterns, and it works with a rug of any size. You don’t have to know how to sew either — it’s just one easy stitch! Complete a 3' x 5' rug like mine in the time it takes to watch two movies, or pick away at it in your spare time over a couple of weekends.

Continental Divide Trad plaids and warm whites create a cosy envelope for a British-inspired kitchen. Produced by KAI ETHIER | Text by EMILY EVANS Jessica Helgerson is an interior designer based in Portland, Ore.

These homeowners were on a two-year sabbatical in London while the design and construction happened, so they put their trust in us, and we took that very seriously. Creating a kitchen that felt appropriate for the look and vintage of this 1920s Tudor-style house was the goal, but we also wanted to make sure there was plenty of room for the family of four to cook, entertain and be together. The cosy U-shaped window seat in the breakfast nook is a favourite element: the leather is beautiful, and the Pendleton plaid pillows are a nod to one owner’s British heritage. I love the round pedestal dining table. We designed a rectangular version, but the round one felt much more welcoming. When the project was done, the owners had us over for a splendid meal to celebrate. We had a ton of fun, drank too much and wound up dancing in the dining room!

GREAT BONES A second-level addition maintains the home’s midcentury modern look, while adding necessary squarefootage and a touch of contemporary appeal. “I grew up in the mid ’60s, so I really liked the original aesthetic of the house,” Jeffry explains. “We wanted to maintain its integrity.”

A faux-slate wall treatment adds a rich layer of texture

consummate host and the former managing director of Toronto event space The Carlu, high-end planner Jeffry Roick is no stranger to celebrity-packed parties and fêtes for English royalty. So perhaps it’s only natural that his own home, which he shares with partner Jamie Temos, a schoolteacher, is always ready to welcome guests. Fluid and full of conversation pieces, the spacious house is a far cry from the aging midtown Toronto bungalow the couple first came across in 2004. “People expected us to tear it down, but we liked the mid-century feel and wanted to build on that,” Jeffry explains. With local designer Allen Chan of DesignAgency, the pair had a streamlined addition placed on top of the existing flat-roofed structure, then put a fresh spin on the interiors. Now, the 4,800-square-foot house boasts a striking façade and open, elegant rooms peppered with standout art and Art Deco finds. Here are some of the elements that make this home so perfectly inviting.

A Matter of Size LYNDA REEVES ON THOSE TIMES WHEN “SMALL” FEELS SPACIOUS.

46 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

Every year, when our “Small Spaces” issue is coming together, I ask the same question: “Exactly how small are they?” I want to marvel at the tiniest homes, which are often the most creative — and every year, I do. I often wonder if the shots we show hide the real size of those rooms, because they look great despite their square-footage sounding miniscule. But “small” really is relative. A little research has taught me that my own sense of space and of what is “normal” is distorted by memory, by changing cultural norms, and even by the hit TV sitcoms that we watched as kids — that shaped our perception of how life should be. My memories of growing up in the 1960s are of running down long hallways in a sprawling bungalow with spacious rooms and a modern, shiny kitchen. I never thought we were short of bathrooms.

650 sq.ft. 450 sq.ft. 400 sq.ft. 360 sq.ft.

My parents had their own private one off their bedroom, while my two brothers and I shared the one “guest bathroom,” with whichever relative happened to be visiting. Eventually, we had a finished basement, with a third bathroom, a rec room and space for the essential chest freezer, the cedar closets, and laundry and storage rooms. I know now, as you probably do, too, that if I were to revisit the house that my very young parents built for their very young family, it would seem like a dollhouse. Of course, a child’s perception is different, but even still…. Those were postwar boom years, when over 6 million houses were built per year across North America, and the average single-family home was 1,300 square feet. That’s less than 400 square feet of floor space per person. Lucy and Ricky Ricardo’s 650-square-foot apartment seemed perfect

to me then. Even Rhoda’s tiny nest in The Mary Tyler Moore Show seemed fine to me. No one described the I Love Lucy apartment as “small.” By North American standards, when the average family in the 1930s lived in approximately 1,000 square feet, the homes of the ’50s and ’60s were spacious! If you were born in the ’70s, you got a little more space, but it wasn’t until the ’80s — during the years of Dallas and Dynasty, big shoulders and even bigger hair — that the average single-family home ballooned to over 2,000 square feet! J.R.’s mansion on Southfork Ranch was almost 6,000 square feet, and that was considered palatial. Fast-forward to 2016. Can you guess the size of today’s average single-family home? At 2,463 square feet, it allows each inhabitant to enjoy approximately 1,000 square feet of floor space. But if you’re looking at the downtown condo market in any major city, the average three-bedroom “affordable” condo for a single family is back to 1,300 square feet — exactly the kind of space I grew up in. And yet, these spaces feel much more livable than the old bungalows and ranch houses of the ’60s and ’70s. We’re smarter now. We don’t waste much space on hallways. Formal dining rooms are gone, and things like ultrathin wall-mounted flatscreen TVs, tiny Sonos sound systems, window walls and glass partitions save space and create an expansive feeling. But beyond that, we’ve learned to embrace “small” as a virtue, and to tailor our lives to having less and enjoying the freedom that comes with that. I think we’ve learned much of what we know about clever downsizing by watching how savvy millennials live and decorate. They don’t bother with landlines, phone sets, full-size printers, cameras, CDs or, sadly, books. They’ve done away with box springs, multiple sets of dishes, and cabinets full of glasses. The right tableware looks great for everyday and can be dressed up for special dinners with some clever layering and all-purpose, low-stem crystal wineglasses, which always work. A beautifully designed modernist chair makes an elegant statement in a 48 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

fraction of the space of an oldfashioned, overstuffed upholstered one. Thin lamps, thin tables, thin rugs, and wardrobes that are about seasonless layering of thin, warm fabrics — so much easier than storing all sorts of heavy winter clothes. Seating and beds are much lower, and tubs are smaller and freestanding, or nonexistent. The best approach to decorating small spaces seems to be a selective, creative use of decorative materials like patterned tiles, wallpaper, mixed woods, natural stone and composites. Hardware is sleek and special — like fine jewelry — and light fixtures are sculptural and elegant. We know from the example of single-floor London flats that a tiny room can be layered up in a luxe mixture of glossy dark paint, petite antiques, lively prints and exquisite artifacts for a dressier look. One by one, my friends seem to be leaving behind their big family homes and moving into condos and townhouses — customized to incorporate carefully edited pieces into a fresh new mix. Every one of them loves their new sleek, effortless space. There’s something so appealing about the idea of living in a self-contained, small yet elegant apartment that offers all the zones of a real house, close at hand. To this day, I still keep a file of favourite one-room “great rooms” with a dressy kitchen along one wall and a comfy sitting room that includes a round table as a centerpiece. Thinking back, I’ve realized where that idea came from. I was watching those single girls in their imaginary apartments in the ’60s and ’70s, taking in every detail. My all-time favourite wasn’t Rhoda’s kooky Bohemian lair or Mary Richards’ charming attic apartment with the pocket kitchen and sunken living room; it was Brenda Morgenstern’s tiny, fashion-forward apartment in New York. I still remember the pale yellow wall of art hung salon-style with a white Parsons table and a wicker fanback chair tucked in the corner. It was all one room, with a kitchen on one wall and a round, draped table in the centre of the room — and I thought it was perfection. I’m guessing … 400 square feet, tops. What do you think?

• To calculate how many inches in diameter your fixture should be, measure the width of your room in feet and multiply that by two (so if your room is 12ˇ wide, your fixture should be no less than 24ˇˇ in diameter) • Ensure your fixture is at least 6ˇˇ in from the edge of the table on each side, or that the diameter is about onethird the length of your table • When a table is 8ˇ long or less, centre a single pendant over it; suspend multiple fixtures above larger tables • Hang fixtures 30ˇˇ to 36ˇˇ above your table, so there’s room to see your guests • Follow the rules, but always eyeball the height before you commit, as your room’s sight lines can impact things • Install dimmer switches

DESIGN LESSON

• To address all of the work areas in a kitchen, install task lighting under the upper cabinets, recessed lighting in the ceiling and pendants above the island or peninsula • Calculate how far apart your recessed lights should be by dividing your ceiling height in half (for example, an 8ˇ-high ceiling should have lights spaced 4ˇ apart • Larger islands can handle three pendants spaced 30ˇˇ or so apart with the middle fixture centred • Smaller islands suit two pendants spaced at equal distances from the centre of the island, with at least 30ˇˇ in between • Hang all pendants 30ˇˇ to 36ˇˇ above the island or peninsula, so they don’t interrupt sight and conversation lines, or get in the way of meal prep • Install dimmer switches

ALL IN A DAY’S WORK Tommy Smythe on workspaces with creative flair.

I

n our go, go, go culture, it can feel like we spend almost all of our lives working, which is why I always say if you’re not happy in your work, you’re not happy in your life. A big part of work satisfaction relates to the physical spaces we inhabit, so I think we can all learn from the offices of those who make a living through their talent and artistic vision. Colour and comfort coexist with organization and efficiency. The offices of both makeup maven Bobbi Brown and former Vogue editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland, for example, illustrate how lighting, pattern, artwork and vintage items delight the worker while providing the most important tool for the creative mind: inspiration! My friend Heather Clawson, of fashion and design blog Habitually Chic, is fascinated by offices that reflect the people working within. She’s written Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work, a compilation of workspaces belonging to the most artful executives and entrepreneurs, including artist-designer Lulu de Kwiatkowski (on the next page). Her studio works hard and looks great doing it — just like you, baby! 56 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

DIANA VREELAND The venerable fashion columnist and editor’s workspaces always included creature comforts (witness the richly patterned fabrics draped over furniture and plush carpet underfoot), which are welcome in the world of the workaholic. Her signature colour, red, is ever present, and photos and drawings casually pinned to a bulletin board delight the imagination. Can you still call it clutter if every object is either useful or beautiful — or both? I say do as Diana does, and your office will be as pretty as it is productive. SEE SHOPPING LIST

BOBBI BROWN Makeup mogul Bobbi Brown’s workspace is a study in clean-lined beauty. John Eaton, a frequent collaborator, transformed her lightfilled SoHo office, juxtaposing a classic French banker’s desk with a gallery wall of personal photos. Order is evident, but not at the expense of personality (pops of red and nods to Bobbi’s love for England — the lipstickbullet Union Jack — abound). It takes skill and careful layering to create a look that speaks in plain language. This is true when it comes to Bobbi’s iconic signature “clean” take on makeup, as well as in John’s sensitive treatment of her space.

LULU DE KWIATKOWSKI The painter, printmaker and textile designer’s studio office might look like a riot of pattern, colour and texture (and it is), but there’s a method to the madness. The founder of lifestyle brand Lulu DK is all artist, and it shows in her workspace. Surface after surface is piled high with supplies used in the creation of her fabrics. Walls are panelled below and textured above with fabric in a way that feels both cosy and practically suitable to the sometimes messy work of creating art. If you tend to gravitate toward the graphic, you’ll derive a few industrious ideas from this sumptuous studio.

Why is a dining table better than a desk? Your desk says work, but a woven chair says instant tropical vacation. Carson armchair, Serena & Lily.

A sculptural table sets a beautiful stage and is so much more inspiring than a traditional, weighty pedestal desk. A dining table usually offers more room than a desk for creative types, who tend to be “spreaders” — we spread out our objects and samples, plus the usual office supplies needed to get the job done. To ensure there’s still storage, add a vintage cabinet or chest of drawers elsewhere in the room. The resulting arrangement will provide loads of utility, while maintaining a sense of curated individuality. Copenhagen dining table, Palecek.

MUSTREADS

Fresh inspiration for cool fall nights. Text by JESSICA FLOWER THE CREATIVE WORKPLACE By Rob Alderson If you want to foster creative talent, turn your office into a creative space — that’s what the companies in this book believe. A showcase of offices and workstations from around the world, the book highlights designs that go far beyond the grey cubicle. Best use of space: Spanish urban design firm Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura transformed an old cement factory into a cathedral-like space with dramatic lighting and long worktops — a stunning office that truly has to be seen to be believed. Roads Publishing, 2016, HC 224 pages, $52.

HOLLYWOOD INTERIORS By Anthony Iannacci Hollywood is one of a kind and boasts a history of unrivalled pedigree — the celebrities, the legendary hotels, the restaurants and, of course, the houses. The local style celebrated here is all about individuality and the area’s rich design history. This new read features stunning designs by top talents like Kelly Wearstler and Rose Tarlow, and shows a variety of styles from crisp mid-century modern structures to a 90-year-old Spanish Revival manse.

INSIDE RIO By Lenny Niemeyer The Olympics aren’t the only thing worth visiting Rio for — the city’s interior design is just as exciting. Surrounded by nature, the featured houses strikingly meld urban and rural features. For example, in one abode a floating iron staircase wends its way around a giant tree trunk. History lesson: For traditionalists, the chapter on fazendas, or colonial farms, is a chance to peek inside grand country houses full of exotic touches. Flammarion, 2016, HC 352 pages, $95.

Celeb clientele: For Grey’s Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo, a client and friend, he created a Tuscan-style villa that’s a study in restrained glamour where opulent rooms are set off by delicate touches. Rizzoli, 2016, HC 240 pages, $50. 150 BEST TINY HOME IDEAS By Manel Gutiérrez Couto Considering downsizing? This collection of unique small homes could be just the inspiration you need. Chock full of floor plans, elevations and design details, and divided into chapters by location, it makes a strong case for the idea that great design needn’t be hindered by size or location. Pint-sized: One Tokyo home spans just eight feet across and is only 36 feet deep — but is surprisingly spacious, due to its four levels. Harper Design, 2016, HC 480 pages, $37.

A CITY DWELLER CREATES A STYLISH SHANGRI-LA POPULATED BY CATWALK-GRADE PRINTS.

S

SABRINA ALBANESE got her start in the fashion industry before launching her interior design firm, Sabrina Albanese Design. So, when it came time to buy her first home, a 774-square-foot condo in downtown Toronto, the “textile-obsessed” designer saw an opportunity to infuse the light-filled space with energetic tropical prints from iconic fashion houses. “I knew this was a chance to really define where I’m at right now.” Sabrina purchased the unit preconstruction, which gave her plenty of time to contemplate how she’d make the most of the layout. “I had to ask myself, ‘What do I really need?’” she says. “It was incredibly liberating to purge things.” She also focused on finding and designing furniture that would be a tailor-made fit. She paired those fashion-forward prints with high-contrast geometric rugs and hits of pale pink and turquoise for a glam yet grounded look. “I call it my paradise in the sky,” she says with a laugh. — Beth Hitchcock

In the living room’s casual dining area, Sabrina created a focal point with a black wicker pendant and a single bamboo peacock chair, found at an estate sale. From there, she added two mismatched contemporary chairs and a stool upholstered in a favourite Missoni pattern. An iconic Saarinen dining table helps maintain the flow of the open living space, while an exuberant palm wallpaper draws the eye into the kitchen.

ANTIQUE FURNITURE AND TRADITIONAL DETAILS MAKE A PETITE CITY CONDO FEEL LIKE A GRACIOUS HOME.

W  

HEN DESIGNER ROBERT TANZ was shopping for a Toronto pied-à-terre where he could live and conduct business during the week, he was hoping to find a spot with a traditional style and layout. The designer, who spends weekends at a country home in southwestern Ontario with partner Bob Hevenor, found everything he needed in a 775-square-foot, one-bedroom condo. “It has 10-foot ceilings, a proper entrance hall and powder room, plus a decent-sized balcony,” Robert says.

70 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

The condo also had plenty of wall space for art — Robert estimates there are about 50 pieces on display here, a mix of landscapes and abstract works. The couple filled the rooms with antiques and Art Deco-style pieces that were purchased especially for this home. “It’s a tiny space, so it should be a very special one.” A neutral palette helps the condo feel more expansive, though Robert admits it can get a bit cramped. “When Bob is in town, we remember that it’s just big enough for two,” he says. “But that’s perfectly all right — we’re lucky to have the balance of city and country.” — B.H.

“WE WANTED IT TO FEEL URBANE AND A LITTLE BIT FORMAL” RIGHT: Because the couple uses the condo as a pied-à-terre, a galley kitchen was more than adequate. “My cooking consists of ‘warming up,’” says Robert. “We tend to have friends over for cocktails and then go out for dinner.” An elegant chandelier fills the narrow hallway outside the bedroom.

T WASN’T the exposed ductwork or the expansive wall of windows that drew designer Erika Floysvik and her partner, Chris, to this third-floor loft in Toronto’s East End. “We were most excited when we realized we’d have enough room for our art collection,” says Erika of the 14-foot-high ceilings. “Art is life-enriching and tells the story of the people who live in a space.” Erika tweaked the 1,140-square-foot space, opening up the kitchen to the living area and replacing the concrete floors with oiled white oak for visual warmth. A new 9-foot-high bank of closets runs along the wall between the front door and dining banquette, holding everything from clothing to cleaning supplies, leaving no wasted space in the hallway. Erika and Chris then opted for custom-built furniture to suit the scale of the rooms and open-concept living. “When you need fewer pieces, you can surround yourself with all your favourite things and create a home that’s sophisticated and artful,” Erika notes. — B.H.

ERAMIST AND DESIGNER TRUDY CRANE of Lookslikewhite studio specializes in creating white dishware, so naturally this hue gets top billing in her 1,200-square-foot apartment, located near the gorgeous Marché Bonsecours in Old Montreal. The historic circa 1875 building, a former rooming house, was renovated before she moved in, so all Trudy had to do was lavish the space with her shade de choix, Benjamin Moore’s Simply White. Trudy’s ceramics are often stamped with textured designs and shaped with organic edges that are testament to their handmade construction. Her apartment reflects this same attention to detail. “I love the whole Scandi-Cali look,” she notes of the monochromatic space, which she’s carefully populated with refurbished finds, like a petite French loveseat and a 30-year-old Ikea buffet. “The apartment has four windows on each side, so light streams in from the front and back. It’s super important in small spaces to get that light reflected.” Large-scale mirrors and a glass cloche collection supply the sparkle, but it’s balanced by creamy rugs and white light fixtures. “This is the perfect space for entertaining because I can cook in the kitchen and still have a conversation with guests in the living room,” Trudy says. Open shelving displays her work and invites guests to grab their own plates and appreciate their handmade, tactile beauty. — Wendy Jacob

In this London townhouse renovation, designer Suzy Hoodless was tasked with creating a “Parisian apartment meets glamorous London home” look. “We went bold throughout, so the powder room is a condensed version of the rest of the home,” says Suzy. Taking full advantage of the homeowners’ love of dark hues, she used a chalky black paint on the walls and ceiling, which expands the space and lets the handmade Moroccan tile flooring and golden fixtures take centre stage. THE DETAILS: Faced with tight spacing through the door and around the toilet, Suzy chose a hidden pocket door to close off the powder room from a vestibule. And by mounting the sconces vertically, she was able to fit two of them, bringing more light to the dark space. Her favourite element? “The wall-hung marble basin is a real showpiece,” she says. Its deep trough and wall-mounted faucet provide an extra dose of luxury, even in such a small space. Wall colour, Off-Black (57), Farrow & Ball; Carrara marble basin, Agape. SEE SHOPPING LIST

WOW FACTOR: HAND-PAINTED MURAL

A deep sink and Carrara marble surround are essential for protecting the walnut vanity

The homeowner had fallen in love with some Zuber & Cie wallpapers, so designer Colette van den Thillart paid homage to their iconic panoramas with a playful hand-painted mural. “I designed it to resemble how this Toronto neighbourhood might have looked in the 18th century, but for humour I put in a local bridge that wouldn’t have been there then,” she says. THE DETAILS: Large-scale mirrored lanterns make the space appear grander, as do the Italianate mirror and antique vanity, which was modified to accommodate the plumbing. Rather than matching metals and finishes, Colette played pieces off each other, giving the space a collected look. “Any transient space in a house, like a powder room, is an excellent place to splurge and also to be a bit daring,” says Colette. “Since powder rooms are often used when we entertain, its rather nice if they’re dramatic.” Mural, Peter Costello.

wallpaper to pack a punch in this tiny, windowless guest bath in an Upper East Side, New York apartment. “The scale and repeat of the pattern are on the smaller side, so it doesn’t overwhelm the space, and the silverleaf detailing helps reflect light,” she says. Because there’s no shower in a powder room, wallpapers don’t have to be limited to steamresistant vinyl designs. THE DETAILS: The fabric of the custommade skirt plays off the wallpaper and dresses up a basic sink — but also hides the plumbing and storage. The vintage-style taps are a nod to the apartment’s prewar era, while the three wise monkey statuettes above the taps add a fun, youthful vibe. “In a small room, details make the space feel more interesting,” says Heather. “Have fun by creating a jewel box to really impress your guests!” Queen of Spain wallpaper, Schumacher; limestone tile, Artistic Tile.

FOR SOME, cross-country skiing across a fresh snowfall is just as essential to the cottage experience as a summertime boat ride into town or leaping off the dock. But designing a cottage that makes the most of all four seasons is a balancing act best performed by the pros. Designers Margot Bell, Katelyn Hermant and Dasha Ricci of Port Carling, Ont.’s Peaks & Rafters, a go-to destination for cottage decor, have worked with the family who owns this 6,650-square-foot cottage on Ontario’s Lake Joseph for years. When the family decided the layout no longer fit their needs, they had architect Gren Weis draft a new-build on the existing footprint that saw 95 per cent of the cottage demolished. Then, Margot was charged with creating a fresh look that incorporated cherished family items from the old cottage. Rustic touchstones — fieldstone walls inset with fireplaces, wood and stone floors, rugged beams and a two-tier antler chandelier — create a cosy retreat. The cottage’s new layout allows the family of five to fit nine guests around the dining table or on the sofas in the open-concept living room. The kitchen can also handle a crowd and is appointed with professional tools like a double Wolf range, dramatic zinc hood and chef’s pantry. “It’s open, uncluttered and user-friendly,” says Margot. “We wanted to give the family all the bells and whistles, so they can whip up a huge meal or host a big event.”

88 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

The design is classic cottage style, with nods to nature that ease the flow between indoors and out. This marriage reaches its zenith on the screened porch, which is framed by large beams and open to the dining room. In the summer, two of the windows can actually be lowered down into the floor, and a four-panel NanaWall opens wide, accordion-style. Automated screens that slide up are the only separation between the cottagers and lakeside breezes. “It’s bright in winter, but feels like you’re in the open air in the summertime,” Margot says. The lakeside view is the porch’s primary focal point, but when temperatures dip, a wood-burning fireplace set up off the ground makes the room a snug place to gather. “Because it’s raised, it’s almost at eye level when you’re seated,” says Margot. “It pulls you right into the room.” For the designers, one of the biggest challenges was resolving the cottage’s sunny, open-concept design. “We are all about light and space, not closing things up,” says Margot. But all that sun can damage natural fabrics. “Cottagers spend a lot on furniture, and it’s a shame if it gets bleached out in one season. Sunbrella fabrics are much more sophisticated now, and they can handle the sun exposure.” Whether the sun is bouncing off the waves in high summer or a snowdrift in deep winter, any day at this cottage is a glorious one.


The screened porch adapts to the four seasons with a NanaWall, windows that lower into the floor, and automated roller blinds and screens. All-weather wicker furniture is layered with throw pillows in shades of pink that brighten the mostly grey space. A mustard Navajo-style rug adds pattern underfoot.

Pie

PEOPLE TELL ME ALL THE TIME THAT THEY CAN’T MAKE PIE. Their pastry comes out too tough or too crumbly. They don’t know what type of flour to use, whether butter or shortening is best, or how much water to add. Here’s some good news: this month I’m sharing the only pastry recipe you’ll ever need. This is the by-hand method; you can use your food processor, but your crust won’t be quite as flaky and perfect. I’d like to take full credit for this recipe, but it’s highly influenced by my Grandma Jeanne’s. She makes double batches and refrigerates the mixture before adding the water. She’ll keep it in her fridge for up to two weeks, then, when family calls in need of a pie, her pastry is just steps away from being made! This pastry is flaky, flavourful and easy to work with. And there’s no sugar, so it works with sweet or savoury pies.

SIX STEPS TO THE ONLY PASTRY RECIPE YOU’LL EVER NEED. FULL RECIPE, PG. 102

2.

COMBINE flour and salt in a large bowl.

4.

5.

DRIZZLE IN ice water while stirring with a fork until water is absorbed and mixture is crumbly.

92 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

ADD cubes of cold butter and shortening to flour mixture.

TURN OUT mixture onto counter and gather together. Gently knead 4 or 5 times or until it comes together into a ball. Flatten, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

3. CUT IN butter and shortening using a pastry cutter until fat is pea-sized.

6. ROLL OUT onto a floured surface, using a floured rolling pin.

Blueberry, Balsamic and Star Anise Pie

KRISTEN'S BEST TIPS

102 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

MAKE FILLING 1. Arrange rack into lower third of oven. Preheat to 425°F. 2. Combine sugar with tapioca, orange zest and star anise in large bowl, stirring with fork or spoon. Stir in blueberries and vinegar, and toss together. Set aside. MAKE TOP CRUST 1. On floured surface with floured rolling pin, roll out remaining dough into 11"-diam. round. 2. Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice into elongated, irregular triangles. ASSEMBLE PIE 1. Stir blueberry mixture and scrape into prepared crust. Dot with butter. Brush edges of pie with egg wash. Layer pastry triangles over filling, leaving some filling exposed. Ensure some triangles reach edge of pie and press into crimped edge to hold in place. Brush pastry with egg wash.

SERVES 8

• Use all-purpose flour for rolling out dough. It has a higher protein level than pastry flour, so it won’t be absorbed by the dough when rolling. • Continuously rotate the dough as you roll it out. This will help create an even circle and prevent the dough from sticking to the counter. • Dough overchilled? Place dough, still wrapped in plastic wrap, on the countertop. Using a rolling pin, firmly bang down on the dough to make it more malleable. • Flour liberally: Recipes refer to using a lightly floured surface — but properly mixed dough will absorb very little flour during rolling, so use an adequate amount when rolling out your dough to prevent sticking. Flour the rolling pin, too. • To make a sweet crust without fundamentally changing the structure of the dough, add 2 tbsp sugar.

and lift into 9" pie plate. Trim excess dough, leaving ½" overhang. Crimp overhang into desired pattern. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to bake pie.

LAY OUT YARN Run your yarn from one end of your border to the other. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to anchor your yarn underneath the rug in the second corner. Repeat this process until all yarn edge lines of your pattern have been anchored to the underside of your rug in all four corners. Thread a darning needle with twine (I used butcher’s twine).

6

ADD TWINE Anchor the twine to the rug’s corner by passing it through to the underside and knotting. Whipstitch twine around your yarn and through the rug. Work from one end of yarn to the other, then knot the twine underneath the rug’s corner. Tie a new piece of twine to the last piece and continue until all yarn lines are stitched. Lay your rug and enjoy! SEE SHOPPING LIST

POKE HOLE FOR WOOL Using scissors, create a small space between the jute fibres in the corner of your rug where your chalk marks meet. Pull a few inches of yarn from the top side of your rug through the space to the underside.

FILL IN PATTERN This pattern was inspired by a Persian rug with a diamond medallion in the centre. After marking the border, draw a medallion in the centre of the rug and work your way out, leaving a few inches in between lines.

Q

We recently moved to a smaller house, so our boys, 4 and 9, will share a bedroom. We love the wide-plank wood floors, but may start fresh with the furnishings. What will work for both ages? — P.T., Vancouver

126 H&H SEPTEMBER 2016

A

Giving your kids a bedroom that they’ll both love — especially after a move — will get them excited about their new home and sharing a space. Traditionally when decorating a child’s room we base choices on age, but here I’d suggest an enduring camp-style decor that doesn’t skew too young and will be easy to update as they grow. The walls are already a perfect grey-green that works well with the warm wood floor. For an updated cosy look, paint your baseboards, doors and door trim the same shade in a satin finish. Taking cues from the Inspiration shot, opt for twin beds — they don’t need to match if they have the same wood tone. Otherwise, a pair of matching iron-framed beds from Crate & Barrel flanking a sturdy wood dresser like this one from Pier 1 Imports will create a similarly charming focal point. Layer the beds with relaxed bedding: cheery ticking-stripe sheets from Serena & Lily, woolly blankets from Pendleton and patterned indigo pillows

from Pine Cone Hill. The bedding doesn’t have to match either — just stick to natural hues with the same intensity. Laissez-faire fabrics that look fine rumpled are easy for kids to maintain, and feel fresh and fun. For a dash of bright colour, add a yellow task lamp by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. for each boy on the dresser, then hang a framed print or poster over each bed (be sure the frames are the same size for a symmetrical look). I love how this modern deer print by Sharon Montrose in its clean white frame contrasts the more rustic vibe of the bedding. Let your boys select their own art to reflect their style: it’s a great way to involve them in their new bedroom and put a personal stamp on the space. 1. Deer No. 1 print, The Animal Print Shop. 2.

This fall tips its frayed straw hat to the palmfringed languor of Cuban folk traditions. With the island now reopened to the U.S., its colourful style is finding its rightful place in the sun. An old world ceiling fan, meant to whirl with all the haste of dissipating cigar smoke, looks like it might once have decorated Hemingway’s famous Finca Vigía estate. Cement floor tiles in festive patterns were fashioned after heritage designs from Havana and conjure the splendour of the Cuban palacio. A raffia-embellished clutch from Lizzie Fortunato in shades of tobacco brown and pepper red is dubbed the Port of Call in Explorers Club. And while Hemingway’s preferred port of call was a barstool at Havana’s El Floridita (on which he set sail on vast seas of daiquiris), you might consider a woven rocker from Casualife instead. ¡Salud!
