a year to remember

THIS YEAR HAS BEEN ONE OF INCREDIBLE CHANGE. Juggling teenagers and Zoom calls (with my golden retriever, Devon, barking in the background) hasn’t gotten easier, but it is amazing how we’ve all adapted. If there are any positive takeaways, it’s having time to pause and feel gratitude, as well as having a deeper appreciation for home — our greatest place of comfort. That’s why it’s even more important this year to celebrate the creatives who make our homes look and feel their best. H&H’s annual A-List is an homage to their inspiring work — and the talent was so amazing, our list got longer! New categories include best furniture maker, owner-operator and architect. Seeing Scott Yetman’s stunning country home reminds me of when Lynda and I were in Montreal not too long…

I just received the November issue and wanted to say how refreshing it is to see joyful children on the front cover! It is the true essence of the upcoming season! — RUTH LUYT, Chatham, Ont. I remember first reading about greige (“Colour Spotlight,” October) in H&H in… 2009? Still a gorgeous colour! — TANYA, @danslelakehouse via Instagram I’m a longtime print subscriber, and the Behind the Design videos are a favourite — listening to the conversations is like being invited into these homes. I prefer to hold a magazine in my hands, and the video on BlazysGérard’s farmhouse made me wish it was in the magazine. — LINDA ROUTHIER, Brunswick, Maine I found the article “Think Outside the Box” (September) so inspiring. I like the simplicity of living in a small space,…

My wife’s chocolate olive oil cake — it never fails to impress me! QUENTIN BACON Photographer, “Ina Garten” (page 90) The Australian-born, New York–based shooter lives in a home that’s packed with art and objects he’s picked up while on location for publications like Vogue Living.

GOTTA HAVE IT Wine chillers keep your bottle at its peak temperature; a great gift on its own, or paired with a lovely bottle. “THE PATTERNS I USE ARE DIRECTLY FROM MY ANCESTORS. I’M PROUD TO BRING THAT HISTORY OUT OF THE MUSEUM BECAUSE INDIGENOUS CULTURE IS NOT DEAD. WE’RE ALIVE NOW” PROFILE INDIGO ARROWS WHO: Textile designer and maker Destiny Seymour, Indigo Arrows WHERE: Winnipeg CONNECT: indigoarrows.ca, @indigo_arrows THE SCOOP: Destiny worked as an interior designer with Prairie Architects in Winnipeg for 10 years. While she had many Indigenous clients, Destiny, who is Anishinaabe, found it challenging to find any fabrics by Indigenous people from the Prairies. This was in the back of her mind when she visited the Manitoba Museum and saw ceramics and tools etched with beautiful geometric graphics — some thousands…

have yourself a merry little christmas

Designer Ken Fulk counts Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom as a client, so it was fitting that he lit up the social media platform when the elevator he designed for InStyle’s 2019 Golden Globes after-party became the preferred backdrop for star-studded posting. His latest project is just as buzzworthy: Commodore Perry Estate is a Jazz Age mansion turned hotel in Austin, Texas, that serves up plenty of inspiration for revitalizing your own rooms, including the ideal small space setup for hosting your bubble this season. Happy celebrating! 1. Enjoy cosy sit-down dinners gathered around a bistro table paired with a corner banquette. 2. Invite guests to mix their own cocktails at a vintage-style bar cart. 3. Use an ottoman as a table for a tray of snacks. 4. Dress windows with floor-length drapery to create…
