This issue is overflowing with star talent. It’s the time when we celebrate our very best, our annual A-List issue, now in its third season. These designers are at the top of their game, whether they’ve been around for more than a decade like our Designers of the Year, the übertalented Les Ensembliers, or they’re a firm that’s just starting to make waves, like dynamic duo Carey Mudford and Erin Coe of Coe Mudford Interior Design. Richard Ouellette and Maxime Vandal, the internationally recognized pair behind Les Ensembliers, invite us to their Knowlton, Que., farm for a tour of their down-to-earth yet beautifully appointed coach house.

Wow, a shelter magazine that publishes letters from its readers! I always stop and read this section first. I love to know what other readers are thinking and am glad we get your magazine in the U.S., even in my little town. Keep up the great work! — SONYA WILEY, Marianna, Fla. I’m sure I’m not the first to comment on how much I love Lynda Reeves’ columns, but here it goes! While so many editorials are straight-up summaries of what’s in the issue, hers are witty, saucy, smart and completely her! Thank you, Lynda, for years of interesting commentary. — SARAH STEEL, Morgantown, W.Va. When my November issue arrived, I was surprised to find not just one but two traditional Dutch dishes.

GOTTA HAVE IT A showstopping bouquet of amaryllis bursting with holiday colour makes the season bright. INSPIRATION CRANBERRY CRUSH Red carpets, red envelopes, Cartier’s little red box… is there a more glamorous colour than this celebratory hue? Go bold and saturate a room in the sultry shade — walls, ceilings and drapery. Bar Marilou, a craft cocktail bar next to Atelier Ace’s Maison de la Luz hotel in New Orleans and designed with Studio Shamshiri, proves the all-ornothing look is a no-fail antidote to the winter blues. Bar Marilou, 544 Carondelet St., barmarilou.com. BEAUTY Out of the Box Gucci’s newest Bloom fragrance is inspired by an ancient Greek elixir and captured in a bottle the colour of a fine Bordeaux. Thanks to its tendril-laced box, unwrapping this gift du jour is akin to uncovering vintage wallpaper during…
