a cottage of one’s own

Around this time every year, I start looking at realestate listings online. It’s not because I’m planning to upsize or downsize my city house. Instead, I’m saving oceanfront properties in Nova Scotia (the shingles make me swoon), country homes in Quebec’s Eastern Townships and cabins on Manitoba’s many lakes. The purpose? A summer getaway spot. I know, there’s a heated debate between those who prefer to rent without the responsibility — “Why not just book a cute Airbnb?” — and those who want to own. Even though I understand the pros and cons, I’m in the latter camp. For one, it’s a chance to decorate a new space in a different style from your everyday life. (I’m dying to try that whisper-pale Scandi look and warm it up with woven furniture…

your letters

The May issue hit the trifecta for me: my favourite singer, Johnny Reid; my favourite designer, Sarah Richardson; and my favourite dog breed, the wheaton terrier on the cover! Thank you for the fabulous issue. — JENNY BARKLEY Just reading the “RSVP” page in the May issue. Your readers often mention that they want to see “prices that the average Canadian can afford,” but H&H is about inspiration. I love searching out similar items I see on your pages at thrift or big box stores. My latest score is a beautiful coffee table book I found at a local thrift shop for a fraction of the price I would’ve paid new! — PAULA SHIELDS I noticed that Joel Bray was not on the masthead of the April 2018 magazine! I’m a fan of his…

liz @ the lake

Located in the heart of the Muskokas in the buzzy summer town of Port Carling, Ont., Liz @ The Lake feels like a fabulous friend’s cottage. Framed by expansive windows, wooden beams and creamy white walls, its stylish vignettes and cosy seating areas invite you to linger a little longer. And from the 30-foot-long deck, you can watch boats cruising past while admiring the outdoor furniture. The key difference? Everything here is for sale. “We have a lot of design projects in this area and it’s convenient to have a store to draw from,” says owner Elizabeth Law. “This shop serves those clients and beyond.” The shop is the natural extension of her sister store, Elizabeth Interiors, in Burlington, Ont., but the offerings are better suited to boathouses and bunkies than…

province of canada

WHO: Julie Brown and Jeremy Watt WHERE: Toronto CONNECT: provinceofcanada.com, @provinceofcanada THE SCOOP: A new home collection of versatile cotton throws and cushions — named after Canadian locations and ideal for cool nights at the cottage — sees four-year-old Province of Canada grow from a fashion label to a lifestyle brand. HOMEGROWN: The company’s offerings are 100 per cent made in Canada. Each home product is designed in-house, and woven and sewn in the country. “We wanted our brand to reference a time when things were made locally using natural materials,” says Jeremy. NAME GAME: The company’s moniker stems from the Act of Union in 1840, which united Canada before the colonies redivided into Ontario and Quebec. It also hints at the brand’s romantic origin story. Quebec-born Julie and Ontario-raised…
