the more the merrier

IN MY HOUSE, we start decking the halls early and we go all out. My partner, Amy, and I are British, so it probably has something to do with rebelling against our stiff-upper-lip DNA (I certainly didn’t grow up with a giant light-up moose on my front lawn). But it’s also a way to create new traditions when our families are a transatlantic plane ride away. Whenever we travel somewhere with our kids, Freddie, 6, and Henry, 2, we buy an ornament as a souvenir. It has to be something that reminds us of the trip, and if there’s a story attached to how or where we found it, even better. Freddie is like a magpie — if it’s hideous and gaudy, he wants it. Which is why there’s a tabletop…

Firstly, let me say how much I enjoy your magazine; I read it with excitement every month. Congrats on the September issue, which is stellar and all executed while in quarantine! Thank you and keep up the amazing work. Our homes have become more important than ever with the pandemic. — LINDA BUJOLD, Montreal As a proud Canadian living in the U.S., I cherish every copy of House & Home. During this time of civil unrest, I was overjoyed to see the diverse faces featured in the September issue. Way to go, H&H. Leading the way, as always. — SABRINA SERAFIN, Atlanta I like reading home design magazines, and I always enjoy House & Home. But if I see one more kitchen “updated” with white cabinets and subway tile, I think I’ll scream. Conforming…

MERYANNE LOUM-MARTIN Author, “Home Library” (page 30) The boutique hotelier’s Marrakech getaway, Jnane Tamsna, has lodged the likes of Giorgio Armani and Brad Pitt. Gift you’re hoping to receive this year? I never get tired of discovering new design books and scented candles. What’s on your holiday menu? Baby carrot velouté, baked vegetables, chicken with fig and spice chutney, and rosemary-perfumed basmati rice. AMI McKAY Designer, “Guiding Light” (page 94) Years ago, Ami packed up her Niagara Falls home and headed to the West Coast — the perfect spot to dream up her natureinspired interiors. Favourite holiday tradition? For me, the holiday spirit is best embodied by giving. Every year, my family delivers meals to downtown Vancouver’s east end. What’s the first festive decoration you put up? The Christmas tree! STACEY BRANDFORD Photographer, “A Modern…

If you follow author and former Beaucoup Bakery & Café owner Jackie Kai Ellis on Instagram, you’ve probably coveted her effortless entertaining style and quintessential Paris apartment, which graced the September 2019 cover of H&H. The launch of Cuisine lets you bring home a bit of both. Created by Jackie in collaboration with Vancouver’s Flax Sleep, the limited-edition collection includes European linen napkins, dishtowels, aprons and market bags inspired by her Parisian lifestyle. Thoughtful details like buttonholes in the napkins (so they can protect shirts in a pinch) or inserts for the roomy market bag (to keep delicate fruit or herbs from being crushed) elevate these timeless essentials. An on-trend palette of Rose, Crisp White, Midnight Green and Stone make mixing and matching easy and elegant.…

MOOD YOU LIKE TO CREATE IN A HOUSE: What I call minimal luxury. It makes my home feel calmest to me — a true sanctuary. KEY INFLUENCE ON DESIGN: Because of what we’re experiencing, home design has changed completely. Our homes are everything now. DESIGN MOTTO: Design should make you feel good — really, really good. INTO: Good design that’s 360 degrees — it’s essential to deliver a full range of delights for the senses. I’m launching a scent line for holiday, and it’s a truly new approach that includes incense, room spray and candles. OVER: The idea of “rules” and over-the-top formality, along with one-note design. It’s all about the personal. RECENT INSPIRATION: Cairo. Egypt is profoundly moving: the museums, the architecture, the historical structures, the colours and, my God, the stars as seen…
