Sometimes I think Netflix knows me better than I know myself. Recently, between episodes of Riverdale — come on, I know I’m not the only non-teen watching it — I clicked over to the “Recommended for You” screen. A new documentary series was first on the list: Abstract: The Art of Design. Intrigued, I scrolled through the Who’s Who of featured visionaries until the final name caught my eye. With apologies to Archie and friends, I had to watch immediately. The episode’s subject? Multitalented British designer Ilse Crawford. Like many of you, I’m a massive fan of her books, interiors — from the original Soho House in New York to the Ett Hem hotel in Stockholm — and product collaborations with beloved brands like Georg Jensen and Ikea.

OUR READERS HAVE THEIR SAY. I really enjoyed the March issue — so many warm and livable modern spaces; I even forced myself to read it in three sittings for extended enjoyment. The Food section was one of my favourites (“Kitchen Stories: David Rocco”), and I’ve made quite a number of the recipes to great reviews. However, it would be nice to see more stories from the prairie provinces in future issues. — LINDA BUMSTEAD Thank you for continuing to show photos of Scott Yetman’s homes, like his latest condo in your February issue. He never fails to impress with his elegant design details and impeccable taste, all wrapped up in such soothing colours. I always appreciate these tours! — JUDI PARRY I happened to see the piece on Toronto store Cambie Design in the…
