Loved this terracotta wall colour in Seville, not to mention the hedge of Monstera leaves.Facetted green subway tiles on a building façade in Lisbon.A dining room with blue lacquered walls by Garrow Kedigian.In winter, you’ll often find me loitering in a paint section, or fanning out swatches at my desk.

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 ROACHI 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 HAIGHTReading about 2018’s trend toward modern artifact (January) reminded me that I’ve been meaning to…
