a cottage of one’s own

When designer Fenwick Bonnell asked if we’d like to shoot his family cottage in Maces Bay, N.B., we jumped at the chance. Weeks before going to press, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Fenwick’s mother, Lois Ramsay, pictured with Fenwick’s brother-in-law Wayne Burley. “The cottage had an amazing feel,” said senior design editor Stacey Smithers, who flew out to produce the shoot last summer. “You could tell it came from the memories and the bond they all share.” I know you’ll love the story, in Fenwick’s own words, on page 84.Around this time every year, I start looking at realestate listings online.

your letters

The May issue hit the trifecta for me: my favourite singer, Johnny Reid; my favourite designer, Sarah Richardson; and my favourite dog breed, the wheaton terrier on the cover! Thank you for the fabulous issue.— JENNY BARKLEYJust reading the “RSVP” page in the May issue. Your readers often mention that they want to see “prices that the average Canadian can afford,” but H&H is about inspiration. I love searching out similar items I see on your pages at thrift or big box stores. My latest score is a beautiful coffee table book I found at a local thrift shop for a fraction of the price I would’ve paid new!— PAULA SHIELDSI noticed that Joel Bray was not on the masthead of the April 2018 magazine! I’m a fan of his…
