In designer Judith Gougeon’s Montreal home, paint, collectibles and repurposed items (that pendant started out as a basket) are the hallmarks of her artistic, budget-savvy style.One of my favourite things to do in the weeks after we publish a new issue is to stalk our social media accounts and peek into our inbox.

I really enjoyed reading the “Sister Act” feature in the April issue. The beautiful photography complemented the article, and I appreciated the before photos for perspective. But it was the sense of family and history that really made the connection for me. I would’ve enjoyed reading more detail about the nine-month renovation and how the family managed during that time.— SHAUNAI enjoy your magazine, but I’m hoping your photographers will start to use the same angles when producing before and after shots of rooms. It’s difficult to see the total impact if there’s a different view used. Hope you see my point?— BRENDA PATERSONEditors’ note: We agree! And while we do strive to shoot our before and after photographs from the same angles, it sometimes isn’t possible — like when…
