Sometimes I think Netflix knows me better than I know myself. Recently, between episodes of Riverdale — come on, I know I’m not the only non-teen watching it — I clicked over to the “Recommended for You” screen.

OUR READERS HAVE THEIR SAY.I really enjoyed the March issue — so many warm and livable modern spaces; I even forced myself to read it in three sittings for extended enjoyment. The Food section was one of my favourites (“Kitchen Stories: David Rocco”), and I’ve made quite a number of the recipes to great reviews. However, it would be nice to see more stories from the prairie provinces in future issues.— LINDA BUMSTEADThank you for continuing to show photos of Scott Yetman’s homes, like his latest condo in your February issue. He never fails to impress with his elegant design details and impeccable taste, all wrapped up in such soothing colours.
