time to be grateful

With so much going on these days, there’s something very comforting about taking the time to pause and ponder the significance of Thanksgiving. As much as it brings to mind gathering around the table with family and friends, it’s also a time to take a breath, pause and reflect before going head-on into the upcoming holiday season. For me, Thanksgiving is about being welcoming and grateful. It’s also a chance to let loose and go glam with a few choice bourbons and some bubbly for the bar. Cocktail connoisseurs can rejoice too: We’ve curated the perfect bar carts (p.98) to entertain from home. My family will tell you I was born to host the holidays. Not just because of the delicious leftovers (I’m already craving that day-after turkey and cranberry sandwich),…

STYLIST TIPS / Stoneware bowls, porcelain pitchers and cut-glass glasses converge to create a rustic-yet-refined look. Embellish with untreated wooden accents. Wood and bark colours will make the soft and natural shades of the porcelain and linen pop. / The lace table runner is by far my fave. Crochet or macramé, use it to gently elevate your table and take you back in time.…

1 CUE NEW COUNTERS Be it pasta sauce or red wine, your kitchen has indulged you, and perhaps your counters show it. With available installation options, The Home Depot Canada makes upgrading your countertops a cinch. Whether you love the swanky feel of natural stone, the durability of quartz and solid surfaces, the budget-friendliness of laminate or—for the DIY-er—the industrial appeal of butcherblock, there’s a surface to satisfy your kitchen’s functional and aesthetic needs. 2 RE-FACE THE CABINETS Why replace when you can re-style? Instead of ripping out old cabinetry, give it a fresh look with new custom-fit doors and drawer fronts in on-trend profiles and finishes (like classic Shaker in aloe green or mod slab in midnight blue). The best part? The process—which includes overlaying the existing cabinet box exteriors to match—only…

something blue

Let’s face it: few homeowners are crazy about a closed-off kitchen. Throw small, awkward and cramped into the mix and it’s a recipe for, if not disaster, then certainly impracticality. That’s why Jeff Snyder and Tracy Campbell, the owners of this Calgary abode, hired designer Alykhan Velji to mastermind a gutsy reno. “They wanted an open-plan kitchen with space for entertaining and lots of storage,” says Aly. Knocking down two adjacent dining room walls dialed up the space, but the blank canvas presented a new challenge. “Each area had to have its own focal point. I wanted an open-concept but with character and colour,” explains Aly.
