fashion comes home

Join the conversation Follow us on Twitter @suzannedimma and @houseandhome Like us on Facebookfacebook.com/houseandhomemagazine Fashion and decorating have always been intertwined. The colours, patterns and textures introduced on the runway inevitably show up in our houses. And as our “Model Home” story (page 106) shows, these days, they’re more in step than ever. I think fashion and decor relate so clearly because they’re both about storytelling. On their own, they give an idea of what moves us creatively, but together they offer a far bigger picture. We love to surround ourselves with things that inspire us or have meaning — whether it’s a trademark bracelet you wear every day or the one-of-akind vintage chair you’ve had in every home you’ve lived in. It’s how we develop a look that feels personal. And while not every…

IAN WOO Photographer, “Style Steal” (page 24)What’s one fashionable item you can’t live without? I studied jewelry and metalsmithing for a year in art school, and I wear two minimal silver bands on my index fingers that I made for myself — reminders of a time when I made things with my hands. The best thing about spring is… how Montreallers start dressing as though it’s much warmer than it is. Seeing all these stylish people shed their coats and strut their stuff at only 15°C helps declare the end of winter. MATTHEW WILLIAMS Photographer, “Sitting Pretty” (page 82) Who’s your fashion icon? Vivienne Westwood. She took things right off the edge. How does fashion influence your home? Fashion and interior design have run hand in hand throughout history. I’m sure I’ll look back…

I have two sick kids at home, and it’s -30 degrees outside, however my medicine just arrived in the form of the February issue of House & Home. Perfect timing! SHOWSTOPPER You raved about our Ikea concept kitchen at Toronto’s Interior Design Show. Meaghan@rowhousenest: The @IKEACanada @HouseandHome show kitchen was stunning. Loved the cabinet colour and use of brass #ids15 Jonathan Garza @bluedrummajor: @HouseandHouse @IDSToronto Do my eyes deceive me? Do I actually see colour in a kitchen instead of boring, done-todeath, uninspired white? RECIPE FOR SUCCESS Reader Gail Palkeinen wrote to say that our recipe for Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies, featured in The Ultimate Guide to Holiday, didn’t work out for her. We triple-tested it and posted our results at houseandhome.com/rsvp. JOIN THE CONVERSATION RSVP, House & Home, 511 King St. W., Suite 120, Toronto, Ont., M5V 2Z4 or letters@hhmedia.com Find…

STYLE STEAL SEEN AT: Club Monaco’s first new concept store in Canada. FIND IT: 1000 St. Catherine St. W., Montreal, (514) 871-9841 or clubmonaco.ca WHY WE LOVE IT: The space feels like a hybrid of a 19th-century French department store and a stylish friend’s beautiful home, thanks to old world elements like marble stairs, iron railings and stately mouldings. “We’ve used the word ‘residential’ quite a bit — it’s about making you feel comfortable,” says creative director and senior vice president of women’s design Caroline Belhumeur, who’s part of the team leading the design of the brand’s new flagships. A library and café area serves coffees from Montreal’s Café Myriade and treats from Hof Kelsten bakery. Books from Drawn & Quarterly can be browsed along with the usual racks of cool-yet-classic clothing and…
