Snapshot of my kitchen island and beyond: it might be too cluttered for some people, but I can’t imagine the room without my beloved stuff.I was inspired by the serene vignette in this North Vancouver kitchen on page 100.There’s something I’ve been struggling with and I think it’s best I get it out in the open: I like stuff.Stuff, however, isn’t fashionable these days.

In a culture that strives to embrace individuality, it’s nice to know creating a unique space from a plethora of design choices is being on-trend!—JOANNE HALL, CalgaryI think a good portion of your audience has young families, but you rarely have any articles showing kids’ rooms. Your articles show pretty rooms, but as far as something practical for families, you have a long way to go.—JANICE TAYLOR, VancouverI find it so interesting to see the approach of H&H to cannabis — with style and acceptance.
