In winter, you’ll often find me loitering in a paint section, or fanning out swatches at my desk. Admittedly, the names delight me just as much as the shades. Mizzle, Rushing Stream, Lemon Chiffon, Silver Mist — these onomatopoeic titles roll off the tongue like found poetry. It’s no surprise they’re dreamed up by teams of colour specialists, marketing execs and even lawyers, and thank goodness. I recall an article from The Atlantic that described researchers’ attempts to generate paintcolour names with artificial intelligence. How did that experiment go? “Stanky Bean,” “Sticks Red” and “Burf Pink” were just a few of the results. Humans, 1; A.I., 0. But I digress. Why do I take such pleasure in colours and their names? I’m what you’d call a Colour Voyeur. Exhibit A: My…

Too many decorating magazines focus on overdesigned spaces that have little to do with the individuals that live there. H&H has a much more personal feel, showcasing livable homes at all levels: from houses designed by novices, who use creativity to create beautiful spaces, to custom homes where the owners have had a true part in their creation. Keep up the good work! — RALPH ROACH I was reading the “Leap of Faith” feature in your November issue about an inspiring new modern home in Whistler, B.C., and I couldn’t help but notice that the vent hood was offcentre of both the upper cabinets and the cooktop. I’m curious about this, since it was a new-build. — ANNE HAIGHT Reading about 2018’s trend toward modern artifact (January) reminded me that I’ve been meaning to…

Just a few doors down from its former home on Toronto’s bustling Bloor Street West, Hermès’ new flagship is a destination for fashion lovers and design buffs, too. The two-storey building was reimagined by Paris architecture studio RDAI, with simple, monolithic columns, and a beige rose-tinged brick façade that elegantly transitions between warm and cool with the changing light. Inside, the space makes a similarly striking impression, with a sweeping oval staircase doubling as sculpture. Saddle-brown cherry panelling, a buttery leather handrail and Faubourg mosaic tile laid in cream and Hermès orange (what else?) bring richness to the lofty interior. For the first time, the Toronto store has room to showcase the brand’s home collection. “We’re able to show all of our métiers in a world that’s exclusively Hermès; one…

cos & effect

The art world is shaping up to be the muse of 2018. With art fairs and exhibitions like Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors drawing record crowds, designers and brands are taking notice — and inspiration. “That’s where you get the best research and see the big attendances of the world,” says Karin Gustafsson, creative director of COS, a U.K. fashion brand owned by H&M. Rather than merely observe, COS has put itself at the centre of the buzz. The brand became a darling of the design set when it brought its playful New Spring installation to Design Miami/ this past December. A collaboration with London, U.K.–based Studio Swine duo Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves (known for creating sensitive, regionally-inspired works), the installation is deceptively simple: a tree-like structure drops mist-filled bubbles…
