best of the best

A few days into Eshun Mott’s first week in the office, I noticed — swooned over, actually — our new Food editor’s picture-perfect lunch. It was “only” a salad, but there was something irresistible about the way she composed the ingredients. I shouldn’t have been surprised. After culinary school, Eshun did a stint in restaurant kitchens before working with food columnist and cookbook author Lucy Waverman for 12 years. After that, she set out on her own as a recipe developer and food stylist, her work gracing the pages of almost every top magazine in the country. Though I was sorry to see Kristen Eppich leave us for a two-year adventure in the U.K., I was excited about what Eshun would bring to the table. “Oh, this?” she said when I…

OUR READERS HAVE THEIR SAY. I’m officially in love with J Gibson’s gorgeously traditional home (“Love Story,” October). It’s sentimental, on trend, eclectic and humorous all wrapped up in one. My favourite piece is the photograph over the bed; the juxtaposition with the rest of the home shows that J is fun and not stuck on keeping up with the Joneses. — BRENDA RUSSELL, Newmarket, Ont. I have to admit that I noticed a significant increase in ads in the October issue. I know that times are tough for magazines but, as a reader, I sure had to wade deep into the magazine to get to the design. — JODI, Chestermere, Alta. Publisher’s reply: Bless you for noticing that we are alive and well! Thanks to all of our loyal advertisers for ensuring…

There are so many enticing finishes in this collection. How do they all work together? The burnished metals, reflective amber and copper mirroring are all of the same ilk. It’s less about contrasts and more about unison — all of it being subtle and connected. The mirrors look like jewelry for walls. Where do you imagine them? These mirrors can really elevate a small, often unthought-of space. One of these at the end of a hallway changes the experience. I think of them as odd little reflective windows. What inspired the basketweave design of the suede Elis bench? It felt vintage to me, like a great suede jacket or handbag from the 1970s. The mixture of the texture with the rose gold is a nice juxtaposition that brings it into the present day. The Apparatus sconce…
