change of space

A new bathroom will change your life. OK, yes, I’ve been known to exaggerate for the sake of a good story, but about this I’m 100 per cent, stand-myground serious. Is a bathroom renovation inconvenient? After living through two, I can’t sugarcoat the truth: Absolutely. Sweeping up demo dust and trudging down to the basement for showers gets old quickly. Is it expensive? Well, usually. Just ask Lynda Reeves, who confesses what her ensuite reno — a dream 10 years in the making — really cost on page 94.But once the last tile is laid, the wiring finished and the water running again (hallelujah!), that newbathroom buzz courses through your veins. Suddenly, you find yourself springing out of bed in the morning and wanting to start your bedtime routine a…

JOHNNY C.Y. LAM Photographer, “Style Files: Profile” (page 29)If I could give one room a makeover, it would be… My kitchen. I love cooking, and it’s so satisfying to work in a well-appointed space.Small change that can have a big impact? Light fixtures, even in the most ordinary room. I have a couple of large milk-glass pendants in my living room, and they give off the softest ambient light. Best cost-saving makeover tip? Do the painting yourself!JEREMY FREED Writer, “Style Files: Profile” (page 29)What would you splurge on in a makeover or reno? I’d love to do a room in Martinique banana-leaf wallpaper.

I was a subscriber for years, but fell out of love with H&H when I found each issue was filled with what seemed to be the same house, clad in white, more white and a dash of super-white. The February issue with the coverline “Decorating Warms Up” inspired hope. I’m happy to see I can look to a Canadian magazine for inspiration again. Bring on the hygge!— LISAJ Gibson’s winter retreat in the February issue: beautiful. What a joy to have such a home. I’d love to pick it up and place it in the Rocky Mountains in Alberta....— MARILYN LAROSEI’ve been following this publication for almost 30 years. Editors do make a difference, and this one is a keeper. From a satisfied subscriber who pays for four copies of…

oak + fort home

Calling all minimalists: Vancouver-born clothing company Oak + Fort is expanding into homewares. Clean-lined dishes, matte bud vases and simple brass utensils are seamless additions to mod — and modestly appointed — spaces, and are sure to win over fans of the brand’s neutral palette and fuss-free fashion silhouettes. “The general aesthetic is refined, trend-conscious and leans toward minimalism,” says industrial designer Alyssa Lewis, who both creates and curates Oak + Fort Home’s offerings alongside visual brand manager Miya Kondo. “Unusual shapes, interesting textures and light colours often catch my eye,” she adds. The full collection is stocked at Vancouver’s Park Royal shopping centre and Toronto’s Sherway Gardens, while a pared-down selection can be found at other bricks-and-mortar locations or online. With the line ramping up, Alyssa and Miya are…
