The

ABOVE: Suzanne and I had lively debates about trends and paint colours for H&H TV. BELOW: You’ll remember Suzanne’s serene cottage from our October 2011 issue.

Is there anything more satisfying than creative expression? Maybe ... but I can’t think what. You know the feeling I’m talking about: that rush of euphoria that floods over you when you’re creating something new and exciting. Sometimes it comes when you sit down at your computer to write from the heart, or when you’re in the kitchen whipping up a new dish, marvelling at how good it’s tasting after that last pinch of salt. Or perhaps it’s in your workshop, when you rub the last coat of oil onto a plank of wood, as smooth as glass, that you feel the buzz. There are so many ways we can be creative in our lives, and decorating is just another one of those ways. For Suzanne Dimma, our former editor-in-chief, creativity comes in many forms. You know from our pages these past eight years that Suzanne loved to renovate her own house, complete her stunning new cottage in Ontario’s lake country, and travel far and wide in search of inspiration for an upcoming project or story. Suzanne is channeling her talents in a new direction, and all of us at House & Home — especially our editorial team — want to express our thanks and appreciation for her great work and wish her success in her next creative challenge. In this issue, the topic is full-blown decorating. It’s not the “decorating light” that’s dominated the scene for over a decade. (There was a time when combining favourite pieces of furniture in a white-painted room would hardly have passed for decorating at all.) No, this is about the real thing — all-out

expressions of warmth and drama. We found it in Michele Varian’s SoHo loft (page 98), Elizabeth Metcalfe’s inspired classic designs (page 56), Garrow Kedigian’s return to elegance in old New York and Montreal (page 128), Brian Gluckstein’s imagined perfect family home in Oakville, Ont. (page 88), a cottage in Magog, Que., by Alexandre Blazys and Benoit Gérard (page 120), and my old friend James McIntyre’s third reinvention of a family home “after the flood” in Calgary (page 112). We also found it, as we always do, in the genius styling of our own design editors. This month they show how to dress up your bookcases, mix multiple patterns in one room, and even wrap a room in toile. And finally, our own Kristen Eppich found creativity in ways that I, for one, am going to copy before this month is over. Cooking for your friends and family for this most expressive of holidays by producing the ultimate turkey dinner with the best-ever sides might be your best way yet to shine this fall. Back to old friends for a moment…. Next month marks our 30th anniversary here at House & Home. The November issue will be our chance to celebrate all the talented people whose work has sparked the creative impulse in us all for decades. And, between us, I won’t be writing the editorial. It will be Beth Hitchcock’s turn to take up the reins for the next chapter of House & Home as our new editor-in-chief. Here’s to grateful farewells and warm welcomes. Happy Thanksgiving!

CREATIVE CALL


CONTRIBUTORS

BRANDON TITARO Photographer, “Kitchen Special: Global Bistro” (page 59) Where do you find fall decorating inspiration? I’m inspired by music videos, designer runway collections, streetwear and all forms of kitsch art. Must-haves in your kitchen? A sharp, chef-quality knife, a French press and a gorgeous-looking blender. Best fall photo you’ve shot? At dusk in Algonquin Park — a solitary spruce sapling isolated by rolling fog in a forest of orange and yellow foliage.

SIMONE OLIVERO Writer, “Night & Day” (page 112) Where do you find fall decorating inspiration? I use Instagram! I have a few go-to designers and stores that I follow, but I also like browsing by hashtag to see what comes up. Must-haves in your kitchen? I like a lot of wooden cutting boards. I have a mix of shapes, sizes and types of wood on display — the more knife marks the better.

COLIN WAY Photographer, “Night & Day” (page 112) Where do you find fall decorating inspiration? My wife is a graphic designer and has amazing taste. She is always one step ahead in this department, so I lean on her! What makes your kitchen cosy? We have a white kitchen with grey lower cupboards; we warm it up with open raw-wood shelving, cookbooks and colourful art. Best fall photo you’ve shot? A row of birch trees across a lake at sunset. The trees were mirrored in the calm water; it was so peaceful. 24 H&H OCTOBER 2016

YOUR LETTERS OUR READERS HAVE THEIR SAY. Just finished reading the July issue of House & Home and loved the Melbourne retreat (“Simple Pleasures”). I myself purchased a small appartamento in Italy, just south of Rome, and relied on all of my past issues of H&H for decorating ideas. Love your magazine! — PAULA SINCLAIR A 225-square-foot outdoor space surrounded by a tall enclosure, with little air flow and painted a dark colour would be hotter than Hades — not unlike dining in a boxcar (“Design Lesson,” August). Is the desire for artistic merit overriding common sense, or am I missing something? — ROSEMARY DURRANT

GROHE EUROCUBEÆ SEMI-PROFESSIONAL GEOMETRIC STYLING AND SUPERIOR QUALITY.

COTTAGE CHATTER August’s Cottages issue really got our readers talking. Signy Eaton was pleased to see her old Georgian Bay, Ont., getaway featured on the “Editor’s Page” — “I still love the texture and warmth of wood on walls, ceilings, floors and accents!” — while Beverly Williams was smitten with Margot Austin’s cottage makeover, “especially the main bedroom.” Maura Davies wrote to ask for more “East Coast style,” while Leigh Durand reminded us what summer living is all about: “All the white sofas make me a little sad; cottages are wet bathing suits, sandy feet, red wine with girlfriends and soggy dogs. Decorate at home; live at the lake.”

FILES More and more, kitchens blend seamlessly with the rest of the house. In this spirit, AyA Kitchens and Baths has introduced burners that are set directly into countertops, with the controls mounted discreetly below. Interior designer Lisa Staton made a similar move in a recent reno (left, inset) when she placed the knobs for a Gaggenau cooktop onto the lower cabinets: “By integrating the controls onto the cabinet face, they stay minimal and refined,” she says.

THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL Its historic bungalows, newly refreshed to evoke Hollywood’s Golden Age, let you vacation like a star. As Hollywood makeovers go, the multimillion dollar facelift New Yorkbased interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud has given to 21 of The Beverly Hills Hotel’s 23 legendary bungalows is great work. The designer pays homage to the stars who once resided here and to the high-glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Elizabeth Taylor famously spent six of her eight honeymoons in the bungalows and chose Bungalow 5 as her favourite. Today, it’s adorned with accent pieces in shades of blue and an Egyptian-inspired cabinet (a curtsy to Cleopatra). Meanwhile, the more masculine Bungalow 22 conjures frequent guest Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs 42 H&H OCTOBER 2016

home with burlwood closets, walnut furniture and even a Yamaha piano. LITTLE LUXURIES: All bungalows are outfitted with Bang & Olufsen TVs, and many feature private patios and outdoor fireplaces. Bungalow 5 boasts a large private swimming pool originally built for former U.S. ambassador to Britain Walter Annenberg, because he didn’t wish to walk to the main pool. AT YOUR SERVICE:

Secure a cabana by the main pool, where staff will mist you with Evian, deliver frozen peanut butter cups to your lounger and even polish your Persols. Bungalow 5, from $8,000/night; Bungalow 22, from $5,500/night. Visit dorchestercollection.com.

FILES “I’M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO BRING NATURE AND AND SOME WARMTH INT INTO O A SPACE” — Laura Kirar Kirar

ABOVE: The collection’s designer, Laura Kirar. LEFT: Wall-mount sink faucet in Unlacquered Brass, approx. $2,069.

Designer TOUCH With her sculptural Pina Paletta collection for Kallista by Kohler, Brooklyn designer Laura Kirar takes bathrooms in a decorative direction — and we can’t get enough of this embellished look. Five standard finishes can be custom-combined, while jewelrylike details ensure dazzling results.

Adds a handmade, artisanal feel Items designed for the bath are often the first thing you touch in the morning, so they have to feel right in the hand. H&H: Do you have a favourite finish? LK: You often see a combination of metals in jewelry and door hardware, but not in the bath. That was actually a really hard sell! My first idea was to have the textured part be unlacquered brass and the body patinated bronze. I’m totally into that combination.

House & Home: The design looks almost feathery. Was that your inspiration? Laura Kirar: I internally called the collection Plume for a period of time, but it could also be a fingerprint or wood grain. When I look at it, I immediately see palm leaves. The texture resonates on different levels. That’s where you can capture hearts and minds — when people see something that is meaningful to them, not just one thing.

H&H: There’s also a bathtub in the collection. If you had to choose, bath or shower? LK: Always the bath. I’m someone who’s always cold. If I can immerse myself completely in a tub of warm water, I’m a happy girl.

H&H: Why did you want to add texture? LK: I wanted a balance between minimal and modern, and something that felt very warm, hand-touched and sculptural.

H&H: Do you have a bathroom pet peeve? LK: Cold floors. Radiant heat is a must — and a really nice bathmat.

A Fine BALANCE

Designer Elizabeth Metcalfe makes a grand foyer feel intimate and layered.

Interview by EMILY EVANS | Photography by ALEX LUKEY

To keep this Toronto foyer from feeling too formal, I added layers of texture, softness and colour. From there, I brought in contrasting silhouettes and metals, and created smaller vignettes. Jean-Louis Deniot — one of my favourite French designers — is a master of creating experiences. You want to linger in his interiors, discover what’s behind a wall or around a corner. His designs are bold yet elegant, and though every detail is thought-out, they’re never overdecorated. His approach to introducing modern furniture and art into traditional surroundings resonates with me. By incorporating abstract artwork, streamlined furnishings or a contemporary rug, you inject life. I want people to smile when they see one of my interiors — a smile that comes from the room feeling just right.

This side table’s strong but simple silhouette has enough weight to complement the more delicate lines of the klismos chair, while the colour and finish reference the black lacquered piano in the living room.

There’s something soothing about the predictability of symmetry, so I selected a pair of matching consoles that are graphic and bold. The bases are a traditional X shape, but their simplicity makes them feel quite modern.

To establish a centre point in this open area, I brought in an oversized library table. A large tabletop gives you the fluidity to change your display with the seasons and for holidays — lanterns and candles at Christmas, cherry blossom branches at Easter. The homeowners’ young children often tuck in bits and pieces they’ve collected, too. Knowing how to layer is key to a successful interior.

The drapery panels in the living room make a dramatic statement. The mulberry-coloured velvet is trimmed with a laser-cut floral motif in ivory wool for a sophisticated yet approachable look. As soon as the drapery was installed, something magical happened: the room came alive.

My favourite chair has always been the klismos, which was designed by the Greeks around 500 B.C. It’s a statement piece that commands attention: the distinctive splayed legs and curved back make it feel more like a sculpture than a chair. When I saw this one by Scala Luxury, I instantly fell in love. Elegant, striking, graceful — it’s perfection. 56 H&H OCTOBER 2016

Using abstract artwork in traditional settings like this freshens things up and adds sophistication. It was instrumental in defining this hall as its own separate space, while also providing a framework to draw the eye into the adjoining living room. This painting and the one on the other side of the doorway are bold enough to have presence, but speak to the soft lines of the drapery beyond as well.

Open shelves, in lieu of deep drawers, put dishes on display, while different levels of lighting take the room from bright to moody in a snap.

ON THE WISH LIST: Renowned chef and restaurateur Marc Thuet and partner Biana Zorich reached out to longtime friend and H&H stylist Reiko Caron to help them revamp their dark and dated kitchen. “They cook and entertain almost every night,” says Reiko, so the space needed to have great flow and be able to stand up to traffic. Top-shelf appliances were also key for Marc, while Biana wanted to incorporate global accent pieces and practical storage solutions. HOW THEY DID IT: Knocking down a wall between the original kitchen and dining room was the first step to brightening the space; bringing the white subway tile up to the ceiling made it even lighter. A weathered cabinet, patterned runner and bold floor add character, while high-end Porter & Charles appliances make it chef-worthy. “Now we can cook side-by-side and have the kids sitting at the table in the same room,” says Marc. “Even our dog, Bacon, spends most of his time sleeping in here.”

Creative Modern ON THE WISH LIST: With the homeowners’ third baby on the way, Toronto designer Sam Sacks had six months to update an ’80s kitchen. In addition to increasing the square-footage and bringing it into the modern era, they needed lots of storage, plus room for hosting laid-back dinner parties. “The owners are both creatives, and they were willing to have some fun with the design,” says Sam.

HOW THEY DID IT: The kitchen was relocated from the back of the house to the centre, where the dining room had been, to create more breathing room. Sam then added plenty of clean-lined white oak cabinetry — including two spacious pantries — a guest- and kid-friendly breakfast bar, and stunning chevron flooring to nod to the Victorian home’s elegant bones. Eye-catching light fixtures and pops of colour in the seating, artwork and accessories put a creative spin on this contemporary kitchen.

For wine, one simple stemmed glass like Riedel’s Ouverture line that can go in the dishwasher.

Élyse notes that when you live and work in a small space like she does, quiet appliances are a must. The KitchenAid® dishwasher operates at a low-key 44 dBA and has fold-down shelves with stemware holders for wineglasses.

FINE LINES

Produced by JOEL BRAY and STACEY SMITHERS Text by EMILY EVANS Photography by VALERIE WILCOX

H&H revamps a narrow galley kitchen for the lucky winners of this year’s Ikea contest.

THE HOMEOWNERS “Ever since we bought our house in now-trendy Corktown, the kitchen reno has been on our list,” wrote Toronto teachers Martine Becquet and Radford Cook in their Ikea contest submission. “More than 20 years later, it needs a serious makeover. Are you game?” It was a challenge that H&H senior design editor Joel Bray couldn’t resist. Here’s how he transformed their small kitchen into a serene space with everything on their wish list.

How we did it • REORGANIZED THE SPACE • OPENED UP THE WALLS • PUT IN NEW CABINETS, FLOORS & APPLIANCES • ADDED LOTS OF STORAGE

LIGHTER & BRIGHTER Joel let in more natural light by expanding the breakfast area’s opening and installing new windows. Two tones of ceramic tile were laid in a herringbone pattern to draw the eye from the kitchen into the nook beyond. New high-spec appliances were installed for Radford, a trained chef and teacher at George Brown College’s School of Hospitality.

MAKEOVER

THE WINNING FORMULA JOEL’S STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS. UPDATE THE DESIGN Joel’s initial design for the Victorian-era home was traditional, but Martine wanted something more contemporary. “We ended up going for clean lines and warmer tones rather than cool greys,” says Joel. BALANCE LIGHT AND DARK Joel knew an all-white kitchen would bore Martine and Radford, so he chose to pair Ikea’s dark Ekestad cabinetry on one side of the kitchen with sleek white Veddinge doors on the other. The muted tones of the wallpaper and tile temper the highcontrast space.

DESIGNATE ZONES Joel split the space into taskspecific areas: a pantry and powder room tucked in a corridor, a dining area with a custom banquette, and a “cooking triangle” with a gas range, convection oven and microwave. SIMPLIFY FINISHES Martine and Radford had birch hardwood in their kitchen, oak in the front of the house and terracotta in the breakfast area. Instead of refinishing them all, Joel installed ceramic tile and Nuheat underfloor heating throughout the space, creating better continuity.

THE FLOOR PLAN

PATTERN PLAY The cluttered sink area was once an eyesore. Now it’s a focal point, with a gooseneck faucet, Caesarstone’s Frosty Carrina on the counters and backsplash, and Schumacher’s Queen of Spain wallpaper. “There’s a famous photo of Mick Jagger in a room with this wallpaper,” says Joel. “So it gives the neutral space some rock and roll.” At first, Martine and Radford weren’t sure about the wallpaper, which has a slight shimmer, but they’re glad they took a leap of faith. “The warm silver is absolutely perfect for the space. What a treat!” says Martine. Wallpaper, Bilbrough & Co.; countertop, backsplash, roman blind fabric, sink, faucet, Ikea.

MAKEOVER MIX & MATCH Rather than choosing dark wood cabinetry for both sides of the kitchen, Joel mixed in a crisp white slab profile. “Finding the right doors and ensuring they didn’t feel traditional was really important,” says Martine. Cabinets, white pot, pepper mill, tea towel, gas range, fridge, Ikea; wall colour, Wimborne White (239), Farrow & Ball.

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING Joel packed as many drawers into the new design as possible. “It’s not a big kitchen, but it functions well because we really thought through where everything would go,” he says. Organizers keep everything tidy, while touch latches in place of some of the knobs keep the look streamlined. Drawer organizer, silver-toned flatware, tea towel, Ikea. TAKE A SEAT The narrow space couldn’t fit an island, but a dining nook just beyond the kitchen was ripe for a redo. Joel designed a custom banquette with moss green velvet upholstery and storage drawers, and added a cork-topped pedestal table. Banquette cabinets, blind fabric, dining chair, tabletop, pendant light, vase, Ikea; velvet upholstery fabric by Romo, Bilbrough & Co.; pillow sewing, Tonic Living.

Small partition walls help define the zones

Before HIDDEN TALENTS With space at a premium, deciding where to put the pantry was a challenge. A wall of built-in storage (tucked into a hallway off the kitchen) was the answer. Touch latches eliminate the need for hardware and help the pantry blend in. Pantry doors, Ikea. 78 H&H OCTOBER 2016

MAKEOVER The powder room is tucked in a hallway in front of the kitchen area. “It’s nice not feeling like you’ve landed next to the chicken roast,” says Martine with a laugh. Vanity skirt, Tonic Living; mirror, Ikea.

THE POWDER ROOM What to consider when adding one to your main floor. 1 BUDGET Powder rooms may be tiny, but labour can still be costly. Plan for the majority of your budget to go toward the cost of trades and adding new plumbing. Spend the rest on some dramatic decorating. “Do something you might not have the guts to do elsewhere,” says Joel.

2 LAYOUT Plan to have at least 18"- 21" between the front of the sink and the toilet bowl. Most sinks are around 18" deep, but this sink is only 10⅝". The toilet is 28" deep, rather than the standard 30". “Believe it or not, those few extra inches make a huge difference!” says Joel.

3 FLOOR PLAN Having your powder room open into your kitchen isn’t ideal, but there aren’t many options in narrow rowhouses like this. “The key was to create a false corridor for the powder room to open onto,” says Joel. He achieved this by placing the powder room opposite the pantry.

4 PRIVACY Invest in a solid door to dampen any sound. If possible, avoid pocket doors — they’re installed slightly above floor level, making them less soundproof. Joel also recommends having your bathroom light and fan on the same switch for “an added hum of privacy.”

5 WOW FACTOR Make up for cramped quarters with design choices that will delight both you and your guests. Joel chose a daring eggplant colour for the powder room’s walls and upgraded the vanity with a graphic custom-sewn skirt.

bookshelves with rolls of wood-veneer trim.

Bookshelves introduce architecture, height and function to a space, and adding decorative trim puts a personal spin on what can be a dull expanse. I love the chevron look of this trim! Bookcases, Ikea; wood-veneer trim, cabinetmaker’s glue, binding tape, Lee Valley; horse, baskets, wooden pedestal bowl, wooden box, Snob; black pedestal bowl, Hollace Cluny.

Has your bookshelf felt more drab than fab lately? Even the simplest unit deserves a dash of personal style — and decorative bandedwood trim is an easy way to do it. I looked in a few different retailers before finding this arrow-patterned trim, but there are plenty of options out there. Applying it to the edges of the shelves was a subtle change, but one that had a big impact on the space with minimal effort.

LUCK of the DRAW Brian Gluckstein’s latest showhome is a windfall of inspiration and ideas. Text by SAMANTHA SACKS | Photography by MICHAEL GRAYDON

URE, SUPERSTAR designer Brian Gluckstein’s $4.2 million Grand Prize Showhome for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Welcome Home Lottery boasts a yoga room, musical stage and two-storey library that soars up from the main floor to create a grand backdrop for the secondfloor landing. And, yes, the gourmet eat-in kitchen, with its butler-worthy pantry and miles of deeply veined quartzite, is gob-smackingly spectacular. Never mind the thick, rippled mouldings that give the formal living room old world presence, and the teal blue grasscloth that drenches the family room in the colour of a bottomless ocean. Given that this is Brian’s fourth showhome for the charity, perhaps we should be so accustomed to his finely detailed spaces that we’re a bit blasé? Perhaps, but such elegant interiors and floor-to-ceiling views make indifference impossible. Most impressive is his idea for the layout of the Oakville, Ont., home. Working with architect Gus Ricci, he pulled some rooms in and pushed others out, a move that created a series of courtyards around the long, skinny 36’ x 94’ house. The resulting Tetris-like shape of the house means that each room has several walls of full-height windows that look onto green space deftly landscaped by Matthew Regimbal of Strybos Barron King Landscape Architecture and blast the interior with daylight. Even the halls are sunlit.

H&H OCTOBER 2016 89


SHOWHOME

“Our winters are so long, the courtyards give you somewhere beautiful to sit in the summer and somewhere gorgeous to look out onto when the weather gets cold,” says Brian. Combined with herringbone-pattern floors in wide-plank cerused oak and arched windows, they also give the home a classically European flair. Add in panelled walls, richly textured fabrics and loads of spots to kick up your feet, and the house strikes an haute note while remaining decidedly family-friendly. “We’re showing people that you can use traditional finishes and still have a contemporary lifestyle,” says Brian. Swish Continental style, loads of light in dark Canadian winters, affordable furnishings that look luxe — with so many great design takeaways, whether or not they walk away with the grand prize, visitors to this year’s showhome won’t leave empty-handed.

RIGHT: Brian’s skillful layering is on full display in the great room, where panelled mirrors flank an upholstered screen that serves as a dynamic backdrop for photography. Ample seating upholstered in a similar hue as the pale grey walls creates an airy feel.

SHADES of GREY Here’s how Brian makes this popular shade sing.

COMMIT TO IT “Painting mouldings the same shade of grey as the walls creates drama. If you’re going with deep grey, bring it up onto the crown mouldings to give it architectural strength.”

LAYER IT UP “Use grey in loads of different textures — like nubby linens, rich wools and woven grasscloths to create visual interest and depth of tone.”

CHARACTER Driven A New York retailer on her dramatic loft, quirky finds and throwing out the decorating rule book. Text by REIKO MILLEY Photography by JOHN GRUEN

M

ichele Varian and her husband, Brad Roberts, the Winnipeg-born frontman of the band Crash Test Dummies, can often be found taking in Manhattan’s bustling activity from the windows of their 1890s-era loft, perched just above Broadway. But with eclectic objects peppered throughout the 1,600-square-foot space, the view into the loft is just as engrossing. There’s a lot to admire and a story behind each piece, something that could also be said about Michele’s eponymous homewares shop, located a stone’s throw from this SoHo rental. Here, she shares her unique perspective on decorating.

UNEXPECTED ARTWORK The den has a decidedly eccentric vibe, thanks to an artful combination of empty picture frames, oil paintings and vintage taxidermy. Earthy tones and aged finishes tie the display together and complement the exposed brick wall. 98 H&H OCTOBER 2016

PERSONAL STYLE

Q+A ONE-OF-A-KIND DISPLAYS Open shelves house ever-changing vignettes of ceramics and sculpture. “Some pieces live in our house for a while before they migrate back to the shop,” Michele says. A miniature piano (bottom left) is one of Brad’s whimsical finds.

HOUSE & HOME: What’s the story behind this unique building? MICHELE VARIAN: It’s been artist-zoned and rent-stabilized since the 1970s, and we’re only the second tenants to live here. Before that, it was used for storage and manufacturing. H&H: How would you describe your personal style? MV: My tastes are always changing, but I’m not afraid of colour or texture. I also can’t stand rules. If you tell me something is a rule, I’ll have to fight the urge to break it, or at least challenge it! They’re simply convention — why be conventional? H&H: Would you consider yourself a collector? MV: My motivation has always been an independent desire for each piece. Then, I curate those disparate things into “collections” — just like I do at my shop.

BOHEMIAN TEXTILES An array of vibrant throws and pillows brings energy to the living room’s neutral seating and is echoed by the colourful spines of the couple’s impressive book collection. A vintage Peruvian rug draped over an ottoman adds another layer of colour and texture for a laid-back look. Wool rug (on ottoman), throw pillows (on sofa), Michele Varian. 100 H&H OCTOBER 2016

PERSONAL STYLE

“SOME PEOPLE FIND COMFORT IN FITTING IN; THAT’S NOT ME. IF YOU CAN’T BE YOURSELF IN YOUR HOME, WHERE CAN YOU BE?”

H&H: How does being a retailer impact your approach to interior design? MV: It really makes me aware of how much — and how constantly — design is changing, which is what I like about it! I only buy things for my shop that get me excited, but of course, I can’t bring everything home. I’ve conditioned myself to wait six months; if I’m still in love with the piece, then I bring it home.

MIX-AND-MATCH WALLPAPER In the open dining space, a combination of three different wallpapers evokes a historical look, as if the room has been papered and repapered over generations. A mix of leather, brass and wood lends even more character to the setup. Wallpaper (top left) by Neisha Crosland, Stark; leather chairs (around dining table), copper pendant, brass mobile (behind pendant), Michele Varian.

H&H: Why all the miniature instruments? MV: I smile every time I think of it. Brad got it into his head that he wanted to make a record using toy instruments. He was trolling the internet and vintage shops, ordering Optigans, Omnichords and thingamajigs from all over the world. For a while, it was like coming home to a mad scientist playing with instruments. H&H: What would you say to those who want to start embracing bolder, more layered decor? MV: Play. You’ll find there’s a common thread in what you like. It could be anything from colour to material to size to provenance. Maybe you won’t recognize it immediately, but as you play and move your things around, it will reveal itself. And if you’re charmed by something, chances are your friends will be, too. OPEN STORAGE The couple eschewed closed cupboards in their kitchen, opting to hang cutting boards on the wall and stock open shelves with spices. A collection of vintage glass fly catchers adds visual interest without interrupting sight lines.

MUSTREADS Books to inspire your decorating projects. Text by JESSICA FLOWER SHANGHAI By Casey Hall Often portrayed as bursting with neon, Shanghai has a surprisingly refined decorating style that’s akin to London’s. The homes collected here are kitted out with antiques, cool artwork and cushy furnishings. In contrast, the hotels are all about pure luxury. Inspiration central: The last section depicts how popular Asian motifs — bamboo, birdcages, lanterns, and the circular portals known as moon gates — are used in modern ways. Roads Publishing, 2016, HC 224 pages, $74.

MODERN LIVING By Claire Bingham Broken down room by room, this book outlines ways to inject personality into every part of the home, and includes helpful chapters on topics like statement lighting and bloggers’ design advice. The spaces featured are fresh and unique — everything from a tiny, sunlightfilled living space to a galley kitchen where the mod floor and wall tiles are only outshone by a mirrored ceiling. Words of wisdom: “Rules are there to be broken. If there is anything I’ve learned from nosing around other people’s homes, it’s that you should always do whatever makes you happy. Don’t take decorating too seriously. It’s your home, so express yourself, but most of all, have fun.” teNeues, 2016, HC 224 pages, $71.

THE PERFECT BATH By Barbara Sallick In addition to flawless bathrooms in every style, this book highlights the less-than-glamorous aspects of creating a bathing oasis, such as water pressure, proportions between the floor and wall tiles, and the impact of natural light on a wall’s finish. Final words: “One point that cannot be stressed too firmly: No matter how beautiful the design of your bath, it will all be for naught if you compromise on quality.” Rizzoli, 2016, HC 272 pages, $75.

FARROW & BALL: HOW TO DECORATE By Joa Studholme and Charlotte Cosby Which wall colour works best in a north-facing room? The venerable paint company Farrow & Ball answers this question and many others in a beautifully appointed book full of charming interiors and exteriors. It functions both as a painting guide and source of inspiration. Bolder is better: The book encourages bold choices like eye-popping canary yellow or moody grey for a petite bedroom. Mitchell Beazley, 2016, HC 256 pages, $44.

THE ART OF INTERIOR DESIGN By Kelly Hoppen Since redoing a family friend’s kitchen at only 16 years old, Kelly Hoppen has gone on to major acclaim in the U.K. for her opulent, globally inspired style. This tome compiles some of her best designs from the past 40 years, which still hold up today. Old meets new: In a slim library nook, old leather-bound books are housed in futuristic floating glass shelves — subtle, yet memorable. Rizzoli, 2016, HC 328 pages, $80.

Designer James McIntyre with homeowner Raechelle Paperny.

ROM THE STREET, this home’s sprawling Craftsman revival-style architecture has an air of tradition, fitting for one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods. But step into the bright foyer of the 4,000-square-foot house, with its bleached white ash floors, bright white walls and bold interplay of chocolate and brass, and you’re treated to a lesson in modern elegance. Homeowners Raechelle and Lorne Paperny and their two teens, 14 and 19, wanted a fresh (and fast) reimagining of their space following the devastating 2013 Alberta floods, which badly damaged their home. They tapped designer and friend James McIntyre of McIntyre Bills for this project since he was

familiar with both the home and their style (he presided over two redesigns of the house, in 2002 and 2011). While the family temporarily relocated to another home, James along with Laura Chapman of Richard Lindseth Architecture spearheaded the renovation. Today, from banks of windows and french doors that line the back of the waterfront home, the Elbow River looks positively sedate, and the flood is a distant memory. The newly renovated home has a sophisticated, open-concept floor plan that’s ideally suited for entertaining. Raechelle is a passionate patron of the arts, and the eclectic mix of low-key and glamorous details reflects her enduring interest in fashion and culture.

QA HOUSE & HOME: Did the flood damage mean a totally fresh start for this home? JAMES MCINTYRE: The new design resembles nothing of the previous house. The flood was ruthless, so aside from the art and a few pieces of furniture, everything is new. Raechelle is on top of what’s happening in the design world, so a lot of the pieces and the overall look are a reflection of things she likes or has seen in magazines. H&H: What are your favourite aspects of this latest transformation? JM: I like the mixture of casual and glamorous. We used twin Kyle Bunting herringbone cowhide rugs (top left), which I love. Having two feels really indulgent — in a good way. H&H: When it came to big design moves, what was top of the homeowners’ wish list? JM: We were able to work out some of the functional kinks of the previous design, starting with opening up the main floor. We tore out one of the staircases, which allowed room for an extra bathroom upstairs. (Now, all four bedrooms have an ensuite.) And we were able to create a really large living room. The traditional office was also opened up, and a round table was placed in the centre of the room to make it more of a family-style study. H&H: What change made the most difference? JM: This time around, it was brightness. The front porch creates a lot of shade, but the bleached-out floors and white walls have a bright feel, which was important to Raechelle. I find that contrast between light and dark really elegant. I love the cosy feel you get from brown drapes against white walls, or sheer white drapes with brown furniture (left). H&H: Did you play with contrast in other ways? JM: Painted-out wall panelling (centre right) has a nice traditional feel, while the Poliform kitchen (bottom left) and contemporary furniture add interesting contrast. The interior nods to and juxtaposes the home’s classic exterior architecture. TOP RIGHT: An Asian-inspired credenza in the entry conceals a bar. Cabinet by Bill Sofield, Baker.

WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO RELAX in a country house, the last thing you want to do is work on your posture. You don’t, for instance, want a chair that forces you upright. Unfortunately that was the case with the formal furniture that used to fill this weekend retreat in Magog, Que. Another drawback was the largely white palette that made the home feel especially frosty in the winter. But the residence, which sits atop a bluff overlooking Lake Memphremagog, had good bones, handsome wood detailing and 10,000 square feet of space to play with, so Montreal designers Alexandre Blazys and Benoit Gérard, of Blazys Gérard, embarked on what Alexandre refers to as a “destiffening mission.” They painted, styled and swapped out most of the light fixtures and kitchen components, giving the home a sense of luxury and polish that feels updated (but not trendy), cosy and manly. And to ensure rooms don’t look cavernous, they balanced the scale of the house with intimate seating areas loaded with snug textures. The refreshed scheme is still formal and elegant, yet comfortable — a hat trick that’s often hard to pull off in a large house.

QA

HOUSE & HOME: How did you come to this amazing project? ALEXANDRE BLAZYS & BENOIT GÉRARD: We did the owner’s house in Montreal’s Outremont neighbourhood two years ago, and he called us in to restyle this one in Magog. The house was built a decade ago on one of the longest coastlines on the lake. You can see the water from the kitchen and the living room, so it’s very special. H&H: What’s Magog like? AB & BG: Many prominent Quebeckers — and some celebrities — have country homes in the Eastern Townships. Magog is one of the liveliest cities in the region. The lake is huge, and they have swimming and sailing races on it. It’s really very beautiful. H&H: What was the most important part of your approach to the refresh? AB & BG: Our main focus was to make the huge rooms look and feel personable, livable and relaxing. We didn’t want anything to be too precious ... like you couldn’t touch it. The owner wanted it to be a bit more handsome — his mom lived here at one time, and it was more feminine. He’s very urban, but loves to be here, so he wanted the house to reflect his personality. He has a man cave. He likes edgy artwork. He loves playing ping-pong and poker. H&H: We don’t see a hint of man cave in this house at all! AB & BG: It’s in the basement, where there’s a TV and media room. Upstairs, he wanted the house to be fresh. Although there are lots of windows, it’s quite dark because of the forest that surrounds it, so we kept the palette light. We did really nice drapes and grasscloth wallpaper in the main living space for warmth and texture. And we played with modern and antique pieces to make it eclectic, so it’s not too much of one style. If you mix styles in the proper way with the right proportions, it really helps a home age gracefully. H&H: How do you know if you’re getting the mix right? AB & BG: You have to play with shapes and hues. We see classical homes that have very sombre 122 H&H OCTOBER 2016

palettes — dark blues and dark greens and reds — and too many patterns and motifs, which can feel stuffy. Bringing in light pieces, like the white sofas in the main living room and the plush rug in the bedroom, breaks up the palette. Light fixtures also have a huge role in making a space work. And playing with more youthful patterns, throw pillows and fabrics makes it fresher. H&H: Did the waterfront location inform your design decisions at all? AB & BG: Absolutely. We brought in branches, coral and lots of orchids. In a glamorous setting, bringing nature inside makes a house feel more approachable, accessible and in tune with its lush surroundings. H&H: What’s your favourite room here? AB & BG: The main living room, because it’s so comfortable. We just want to sit on those sofas all day, open the doors, look at the lake, light a fire, read a book, and have great cocktails and conversations. It feels so warm and inviting, and the mix of furniture is really cool. There’s surround sound too, so it’s very relaxed but pampering. You feel like you’re in a beautiful hotel on Lake Como.

GARROW KEDIGIAN has a meant-to-be attitude about Manhattan’s competitive real estate scene. “In New York, an apartment chooses you — you don’t choose it,” he says with a knowing laugh. That was clearly the case for two of Garrow’s clients — the owners of this 2,800-square-foot prewar apartment on the Upper East Side. A young couple with two daughters, they had already placed an unsuccessful bid on their dream space. After lamenting the loss for six months, they jumped at the chance when this stately apartment became available in the same building on an even higher floor. “It hadn’t been updated in 50 years and was in dire need of everything,” says Garrow. “But that was part of the fun.” Here’s how the Canadian designer used his eye for structure, symmetry and drama to restore the space to its former glory. H&H OCTOBER 2016 129


Garrow lent the entry a jewel box feel with high-gloss blue walls, a marble checkerboard floor, and a recessed goldleaf dome. Wall colour, Alfresco (1672), Benjamin Moore; sconce, Remains Lighting.

QA H&H: You’ve really gone to town with high-gloss paint — what’s the appeal? GK: Most people work during the day and use their apartments in the evening, so it’s nice to make the walls and ceiling sparkle. I find that high-gloss paint finishes are more successful in the city as opposed to, say, a beach house. 130 H&H OCTOBER 2016

H&H: There’s a level of couture-like detail throughout the space. Tell us about those goldleaf lines inside the dining room wall panels. GK: I did the same thing in my own apartment, and when this homeowner saw it, she loved it right away. For me, that detail adds polish. It’s such an easy thing, but it feels custom and special. And you should see the way the gold-leaf twinkles by candlelight! H&H: What’s your advice for homeowners who are embarking on a big renovating or decorating project? GK: I always tell people to go with their instincts. So much time can pass during a project, and you’ll find yourself second-guessing, which is almost always a bad thing. When I redid my New York apartment, I made a list of 10 things that inspired me and I didn’t veer from it.

Photography by John Gruen

HOUSE & HOME: Let’s start with the million-dollar question: How do you design rooms that are refined but not stuffy? GARROW KEDIGIAN: Modern interpretations of the classics tend to do that. So taking herringbone wood floors and staining them ebony, going with a light palette in high-gloss finishes, or introducing those two glossy orange tables that flank the living room sofa — that’s how you can throw a bit of fun into something that’s normally serious.


Photography by John Gruen

ABOVE: The living room’s symmetrical layout was driven by the homeowners. “That was very important to them,” says Garrow. “Two stools, two lamps, two consoles — everything in pairs. It makes the room feel very organized.” The apartment’s original fireplace mantel overwhelmed the room, so Garrow found one with a smaller scale and topped it with a vintage sunburst mirror.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN Garrow Kedigian was wrapping up his thesis in architecture at Montreal’s McGill University when he came across a magazine article that would change his life. It showcased a home by a fellow Canadian expat, designer William Hodgins, who has been based in Boston since the 1960s. Garrow was so struck by it he sent the designer his C.V. Amazingly, it worked; he found his in and stayed for six years. “People tell me I’m such a perfectionist,” says Garrow, “but William’s an exacting genius.” Since launching his eponymous design firm in New York in 2001, Garrow has become sought-after for his finely attuned sensitivity to architectural detail. His work is subtly orchestrated yet full of wit and whimsy: the palette is varied but harmonious, and antiques remain approachable. “Properly layered interiors are put together by amassing unique things from many different sources, and a mixture of periods and styles,” he says.

REFINED & RELAXED DECORATING: GARROW’S DOS AND DON’TS

Do: Use colour

“Colour is a part of our psyche, and it goes a long way toward making a room comfortable. The minute you paint a colour on the walls, the decorating battle is already half-won.”

Do: Have fun with pattern “I like to do lots of pattern and lots of colour. People often shy away from what I call ‘personality fabrics.’ But when you put a personality fabric on a solid ground, it’s actually quite contained.” ABOVE: In the daughters’ shared bedroom, Garrow upholstered wall panels with Katie Ridder’s Pagoda print.

HIS LARGE, AIRY ENGLISH kitchen — in a home built for a Birmingham pen manufacturer in 1887 — is perfectly on point today. The space was being used as a living room when the current owners renovated it with deVol Kitchens designer Helen Robson in 2015, turning it into a charming yet hardworking kitchen. When we came across this beautiful room at House & Home, we were struck by how every facet exudes authentic European charm. We’ve broken down the key moves to help you get the look and feel of this high-contrast space.

T

THE ESSENTIALS BLOND WOOD FLOORS A timeless pattern like herringbone in a pale finish lends a European vibe. DARK PAINTED CABINETS A moody hue creates major drama (especially with glass uppers) and contrasts open white shelves and light floors. MIXED COUNTERS Durable Silestone counters are combined with a natural oiled-oak surface on the island. SUBWAY TILE Practical and age-appropriate, this backsplash adds an instant pedigree.

THE AUTHENTIC ADD-ONS INDUSTRIAL PENDANTS A mix of battered metal pendants are suspended on long chains from the 25'-high cathedral ceiling. VINTAGE ACCESSORIES Crockery jars, wooden produce crates, enamel bread boxes and scales: a few well-chosen items establish the integrity of this kitchen. PERIOD-STYLE HARDWARE Old-school brass knobs, pulls and latches add history and warmth to dark cabinets.

H&H OCTOBER 2016 141


High hooks on the side of the pantry keep aprons handy but out of the way

An apron-front sink breaks up the dark cabinetry and adds a country vibe

It’s easy to grab the right pot when they’re all hung on a rail behind the cooktop

THE FUNCTIONAL TOUCHES MULTIPURPOSE PANTRY The pantry has the presence of a stand-alone piece of furniture, yet it’s actually four tall cabinets that house dry goods and a microwave, plus a fridge and freezer integrated into the cupboard doors. HARVEST TABLE A generous oak table looks better with wear, and leaves at either end fold up to accommodate a crowd, especially with bench seating pulled up along either side. VERSATILE ISLAND For casual dining, stools are easily pulled out from under the island’s L-shaped counter. A wine fridge and large pan drawers are integrated into the island, which is also equipped with a discreet outlet for charging gadgets.

TALKING TURKEY OUR FOOD EDITOR SHARES HER BEST THANKSGIVING RECIPES, AND WHY DRY-BRINING IS THE SUREST WAY TO A PERFECT BIRD. By KRISTEN EPPICH | Photography by STACEY BRANDFORD | Produced by STACEY SMITHERS and LAUREN PETROFF

T

THANKSGIVING is a busy time at our house. We have a get-together with family and close friends, where we form teams and have an annual scavenger hunt. The afternoon is spent scouring the neighbourhood for treasures — so when the crew gets back to our house, they’re hungry. There are always extra hands to help out, so I put them to work in the kitchen and setting the table. Meanwhile, I put out a quick no-fuss snack for my guests to graze on. My go-to is a board loaded with artisanal bread from the bakery at the end of my road, honey from Rosewood Estates Winery in Niagara and a good stinky blue from my local cheese shop. Then comes the turkey. Oh, the turkey. Does anything get more airtime over Thanksgiving? When the main course is also the highly anticipated centerpiece, it lends itself to a moment of greatness ... you hope! There are lots of ways to cook a turkey: traditional roasting, on a

rotisserie, in a paper bag or even deepfrying. But when I have a house full of people, I’m looking to minimize my risk and make the best turkey possible, so I rely on dry-brining. Dry-brining is your best shot at a juicy, flavourful bird. How does it work? First, exposing the bird to seasonings for several hours gives them a chance to penetrate the meat, not just the skin. Second, and most important, brining impacts the texture of the turkey. Salt relaxes the meat so it won’t contract as much during cooking. This means the valuable juices stay where they belong — in the turkey! And finally, you’ll see that dry-brining creates golden, crispy, irresistible skin. Once the turkey comes out of the oven, tent it loosely with foil and give it plenty of time to rest. Give my method a try this year, and I promise your turkey will be more flavourful and succulent than ever before. Enjoy!

3 PREP STEPS TO A PERFECT BIRD

RECIPE, PG. 154

SUGAR AND SPICE DRY-BRINED ROAST TURKEY Juicy, tender meat, crispy skin and great flavour are the hallmarks of a good turkey. I choose dry-brining over wet because it seasons the bird, crisps the skin and holds in the juices. (A wet brine flavours the turkey, but it won’t give you the crispy skin.) Be sure to baste every 30 minutes.

• Make your brine • Coat the turkey • Rub oil on and under the skin

STEP 1: Prepare ingredients for dry brine and mix together until you have an even distribution.

Pillows, Tonic Living.

RECIPE, PG. 154

MY BEST TURKEY GRAVY My one policy when it comes to gravy is to make more than you need. Topping up your turkey juices with chicken stock will get you there.

146 H&H OCTOBER 2016

Pepper mill, Old Faithful Shop. STEP 2: Thoroughly sprinkle brine over the bird, gently patting as needed to help it stick to the skin. Then sprinkle a small amount inside the cavity. Chill 8 hours.

STEP 3: Spread oil on the rinsed turkey just before roasting, gently rubbing between the skin and flesh where possible. Tie the legs together and roast. SEE SHOPPING LIST

RECIPE, PG. 156 Russet potatoes are the best choice for mashing because of their high starch level. During cooking, these starches break down, and the potatoes become light and fluffy. I know it’s not the done thing to use an electric mixer for mashing, but it’s the easiest way to get great results for a big batch like this.

Sugar and Spice Dry-Brined Roast Turkey This turkey recipe needs 14 hours in your fridge. That means juggling some fridge space, I know — but trust me, it’s worth it. I recommend leaving the brine on overnight, rinsing the turkey first thing in the morning, then returning it to the fridge to firm up the skin for 6 more hours or until you’re ready to roast it.

KRISTEN’S TURKEY TIPS • Choose a turkey that’s 14-16 lb. for most even cooking. If you need more turkey than that, opt for roasting two turkeys instead of a single giant bird. • When possible, buy a fresh bird instead of a frozen one. Fresh turkeys are juicier, more tender and taste better. • Rub oil or butter under as much of the skin as possible before cooking to encourage the crispest skin. • Baste your turkey every 30-40 minutes, rotating the roasting pan in the oven to brown the bird most evenly. • If the breast of your turkey is browning too quickly, cover that area loosely with foil and continue roasting. • Let your turkey rest — loosely covered in foil — no less than 30 minutes and up to 1 hour before slicing it.

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes with Fried Sage Four pounds of potatoes may seem like a lot, but these are so good you’ll be glad to have seconds. For extra-smooth potatoes, put them through a ricer after cooking, before adding butter and milk. When making brown butter, use a pot with a lightcoloured bottom so it’s easier to tell when butter begins to change colour. SERVES 8

PREP TIME: 25 minutes TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

MAKE MASH 1. Drain potatoes and return to same pot. Return pot to hot stove element for 1 minute to let excess water evaporate. 2. Using electric hand mixer or hand masher, mash potatoes until roughly broken up. Add half of butter-milk mix, then mash more. Add remaining butter-milk mix and mash until creamy and smooth. Season generously with salt to taste. FINISH MASH 1. Spoon mashed potatoes into serving dish and make swirls on top to create divots. 2. Drizzle reserved brown butter over potatoes. Sprinkle with fried sage.

12 sage leaves Vegetable oil for frying ½ cup plus 2 tbsp unsalted butter ¾ cup cream ¾ cup milk 4 lb. russet potatoes, peeled Kosher salt MAKE FRIED SAGE 1. Add enough oil to medium pot to reach 1" in depth. Heat over medium-high until oil is hot. To test oil, drop in a sage leaf — it should sizzle. 2. Add leaves and fry 10 to 20 seconds or until crispy, flipping once. Remove leaves to a paper towel-lined plate and reserve. Discard oil.

PREP BREAD PIECES 1. Tear or cut bread into 1½" pieces and transfer to large bowl. You’ll have about 12 cups of pieces. 2. Grease a 9" x 13" baking dish with 1 tbsp butter. COOK VEGETABLES 1. Melt 2 tbsp butter in large skillet over medium heat. 2. Add onions and cook until they begin to release liquid, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are sweet and caramelized, 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon into bowl and reserve. 3. Add 2 tbsp butter to same pan and increase heat to medium. Add carrots and celery, and cook until vegetables are very tender, about 10 minutes. Add white wine and cook 1 minute, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan. ASSEMBLE STUFFING 1. Add vegetable mixture into bowl with bread. Add half of caramelized onions to this bowl. Stir together. 2. Sprinkle bread mixture with poultry seasoning, tossing continuously so spices are evenly distributed. 3. Gradually add stock while stirring until it’s all absorbed. 4. Stir in parsley. Season with pepper. Taste stuffing and season with salt only if needed (it depends on saltiness of bread and stock). 5. Transfer to prepared baking dish, gently pressing down to fit if needed. Melt remaining 1 tbsp butter and drizzle over stuffing. Cover with foil. BAKE STUFFING 1. Preheat oven to 375°F. 2. Bake 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 20 minutes or until top is golden and stuffing is hot throughout. Scatter remaining onions over top and bake CONTINUED 10 minutes.

STEP BY STEP: BOOKSHELF TRIM

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

what you’ll need: Wood-veneer trim (wooden banding), utility knife, cutting mat, cabinetmaker’s glue (or other wood glue), binding tape (or other strong tape), wood strips

1

2

MEASURE FOR LENGTH OF VENEER TRIM Measure the front edges of your bookshelf’s gables (vertical boards) to determine the amount of trim needed. The banding I used was from Lee Valley and came in lengths of 1 metre; I used just under 2 metres per edge. Mark these measurements on your banding and cut to size using a utility knife.

3

4

APPLY WOODEN STRIP Lay a wooden strip that’s the same length and width as your shelf edge (you can get one cut at The Home Depot) over the trim and tape it tightly to the shelf using binding tape. This will maintain pressure on the trim while it dries without having to attach tape directly to the band. Leave strip on for at least 1 hour.

5

REMOVE WOODEN STRIP Carefully peel off the tape to remove the wooden strip.

6

LET TRIM DRY COMPLETELY Allow the glue holding the decorative trim to dry for another 24 hours to ensure it’s fully bonded. Fill your shelves and enjoy!

APPLY TRIM Press the decorative trim onto the shelf edge, being careful to ensure that it’s applied evenly so that it doesn’t bunch. (If you don’t want to permanently commit to the banding, consider installing it with doublesided tape rather than glue.)

160 H&H OCTOBER 2016

APPLY GLUE Apply cabinetmaker’s glue down the centre of a shelf edge; use sparingly so that excess glue doesn’t push out the sides of the banding.

Swap in a clean but classic mantel with pilasters

Jennifer Koper explains how to revamp a dated fireplace.

Q

I was told to paint my brick fireplace the same colour as the walls to make it less prominent, but it stands out even more! Can you suggest another colour, or should I cover it with panelling? — K.M., Toronto

182 H&H OCTOBER 2016

A

In most rooms, the fireplace is the focal point, so you’re right to pay attention to how it looks. Painted brick can feel unfinished or seem like a temporary solution. Avoid the quick fix: remove the old mantel and invest in a new mantel and pilasters to cover up the brick. (The pilasters are optional — skip them if you want your space to have a more modern look.) You can buy something similar to the ones in our Inspiration room, by designer Cameron MacNeil, at a trim supplier or have them custom-built by a carpenter. Paint the new mantel and pilasters a bright white like Behr’s Polar Bear, then install polished marble tile as the fireplace surround for a fresher look. In spring and summer, style the firebox decoratively with a stack of logs. For winter,

web

when you’re using it for fires, replace the firescreen with a new clean-lined version for an updated look. To lighten the space further, swap out your mirror for a more streamlined one, and pare down the decorative accessories on the mantel. Complete the look with a fresh coat of paint on the walls (we like the pretty blue in the Inspiration shot), a saturated rug for colour, a pair of elegant chests flanking the fireplace and a set of sleek fireplace tools. 1. Ziegler Blue Second Life rug, Elte. 2. Sutton chest, The Art Shoppe. 3. Bend fireplace tools, CB2. 4. Firescreen by Stone County Ironworks, Lowe’s. 5. Bianco Venatino marble tile, Factory Tile Depot. 6. 110 Williamsburg mantel by Pearl Mantels, eFireplace Store.

This autumn, you half expect deer and wood sprites to caper through showrooms and down runways, lush as they are with sylvan-inspired furniture and patterns. Should Bambi ever, say, move to a loft in Brooklyn, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d surely outfit it with fern-patterned linen pillows from Leif and a resin-topped, red cedar coffee table by Michael Thomas Host. Plates from Italian ceramicist Rina Menardi have the texture of wind- and rain-ravaged stones. A hand-painted tree trunk vase from British designer Richard Woods looks like it could prove a happy home to both bouquets and visiting hummingbirds. And if there ever was such a thing as Minimalist Smurf (Handy Smurfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business partner or love interest?), he would surely live amongst these whimsical mushroom containers.
