money talk

I was raised never to discuss money. I don’t remember my parents telling me why, or that I shouldn’t; it just wasn’t done. That lesson stayed with me into my twenties. When a friend asked what my sofa cost, I’d lie and say I couldn’t remember. If another friend said she bought cute new shoes for “just 25 bucks — can you believe it?” I’d blush, fake a knowing expression and change the subject. Money talk felt like bragging — no matter if it was about spending saving — and that made me uncomfortable.I got over it once I started building my career and collecting paycheques. Finally, I understood the pride of saving up for something special or discovering a deal so sweet I wanted to shout it from the…

MAXIME DESBIENS Photographer, “We Went All In to Renovate a Century Home” (page 70) Smart idea for budget decorating? I frame and hang my own images, especially ones I take on my travels. They remind me of the memories I’ve made. Best investment? My multijet shower. It’s so relaxing, and it feels like you’re being massaged. Greatest budget find? My espresso machine, because it makes the perfect café latte. I have no need to go to a coffee shop anymore!ALISON GARWOOD-JONES Writer, “We Totally Redesigned Our Cottage Without Renovating” (page 84)Smart idea for budget decorating? Furniture swaps with friends. They often evolve into clothing swaps. Best big-box find? My Home Depot glass-front bathroom cabinet. It houses family photos, bejewelled compacts and bright red Chanel lipsticks. Favourite vintage piece? A teak…

The quality of your magazine is excellent. The layouts, text and photography — even the thickness of the paper — add up to an excellent Canadian publication. I also really like that you include floor plans; this makes it so much easier to visualize things. Thanks for continuing to showcase beautiful, livable homes!— BARB O’BRIENI wanted to say what a great idea it was to include the page from the Electrical Safety Authority in your April issue, reminding everyone that there’s more to a reno than looks. In a magazine like House & Home, with all its beautiful paint, furniture and accessories, it’s critical that we’re informed of important foundational matters that make our homes safe, too.— JACKIE KUEHLBY THE NUMBERSLynda Reeves’ bathroom reno in the April issue (“Into the…

GOTTA HAVE ITIn any colour, at any price, no matter the scale, stripes add summery cheer that never goes out of style.“ REAL LUXURY, TO ME, IS SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH THE PEOPLE AND THINGS YOU LOVE, IN THE PLACE YOU WANT TO BE, AND NOTHING MORE” — Kate SchelterCHINTZ BOUDOIR PILLOW “Skip the layers of unnecessary Euro shams and splurge on a boudoir pillow. It’s bed jewelry that you can hug — the charming pop, the très charmant moment.”WEBER GRILL “A Weber grill brings me joy. It’s easily recognizable to all. Functional in its form. Deeply simple, yet also a combination of art, and maybe even a touch of perfection. It’s a classic.”Grand Central Life & Style, 2017, HC 256 pages, $32.DIXON TICONDEROGA PENCILS “My dad likes simplicity in good…

BETH HITCHCO CK Editor-in-chiefVINTAGE LANTERNSI snapped up two Moroccan ceiling fixtures at the Aberfoyle Antique Market near Guelph, Ont., for a total of $15. I spent another $250 having them rewired, but it was worth it! They add a touch of hipness to my traditional-leaning front hallway.JEN MASSEAU Assistant design editorSALE-PRICE CHAIRSI love the minimalist look of these dining chairs, which I scored on clearance at Elte Mkt for $115 each. The cost of multiple dining chairs can add up quickly, so I was thrilled to find four for an affordable price.K AI E THIER De sign editorREUSED KITCHEN CABINETSWhen I renovated my kitchen, I found solid maple cabinets in excellent condition at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
