you say cottage, i say cabin

As a child, my summers started with a 12-hour car ride from the middle of Alberta to the interior of British Columbia. My sisters and I would only be allowed one break, so we’d settle in for the ride, limbs all askew, reading books, playing car games but mostly just idly looking out the window. As the golden hue of the Prairies morphed into the majesty of the Rocky Mountains, we would call out familiar landmarks along the way — the Calgary Tower, the Three Sisters mountain range, the Enchanted Forest theme park — each one bringing us a step closer to two or three highly anticipated weeks of waterskiing, boat rides and ice cream. Maybe you have similar memories of getting to your cabin in the Selkirks, cottage on a…

EMA PETER Photographer, “Coastal Bistro” (page 38) Ema received her first camera at age six, and the interior and architectural shooter has never let go. Your ideal alfresco picnic includes… Prosciutto-wrapped melon, Brie de Meaux, a French baguette, a bottle of chilled bubbles and, of course, chocolate truffles. Top patio hosting tip?

IRIS BENAROIA Writer, “Let’s Have Coffee in the Garden” (page 58) A former associate editor of the National Post’s Homes section, Iris has been writing about design since sponge-painted walls were in fashion.

Just when I thought H&H was getting a little too ho-hum, I get my May 2019 issue — it’s fabulous! — KATHRYN MEYER, Toronto I’ve been a subscriber for about 10 years; thank you very much for the beautiful May issue. I’m savouring the photos and locales. The design in this issue is so creative and moving. Thanks for taking it up a notch! — MARGOT SCHMIDT ANDRESS, Minneapolis, Minn. Kudos to Tommy Smythe and Lindsay Mens Craig for what they accomplished in that magnificent Connecticut home (“New Wave,” May). The preservation of pure elegance yet the creation of comfort and casual coastal style was magically achieved. Very well done! — NANCY NEWTON, N.S.

GOTTA HAVE IT Bring a tropical resort vibe to city terraces or cottage docks with large woven lanterns in natural rattan and bamboo. SHOP LOCK + QUAY Designer Christopher Spraggett’s well-appointed Muskoka shop is filled with covetable furniture, lighting and accessories, but most people notice the floor first. “It looks like a hand-painted floor, but it’s actually covered in eight- by 10-foot printed vinyl oilcloth floor mats,” says Christopher. “I bought a bunch and arranged them together; it’s more practical for people coming in with wet shoes.” His creative approach makes Lock + Quay a rich source for cottage style that’s anything but cliché. The 900-square-foot store’s diverse collection includes rustic teak chairs, mod lamps and chunky woven baskets, all in organic hues reminiscent of sand, stone and water. “I lean toward texture and…
