FOR THE ARMCHAIR TRAVELLER INSIDE MARRAKESH By Meryanne Loum-Martin An accomplished lawyer and world traveller, Meryanne Loum-Martin may have lived in Abidjan, Paris, New York and London, but she only truly felt at home when she stepped foot in Marrakesh. Her book takes readers on a tour of famous riads in the city, including Yves Saint Laurent’s Dar el-Hanch and hot spots such as El Fenn, La Mamounia and Jnane Tamsna — her own boutique hotel in Palmeraie. Rizzoli, 2020, $80. H&H: Morocco is a huge inspiration for decorating right now. Why do you think this look resonates? MLM: Everyone dreams of a romantic and exotic escape. Today’s decorating is about fusion, and Moroccan style is easy to sprinkle into an interior anywhere in the world. H&H: You’re the first (and only) Black female hotel owner…

winterizing a one-season house

It’s a fact that many of the most charming, poetic houses are one-season cottages. The first time I saw the lakehouse, it didn’t dawn on me that this was the case, because who wants to think about practical matters when one is falling in love? No one. I snapped back to reality when I asked to see the basement. There was none — only a crawl space. What about the laundry room? I was shown a small screened porch off the kitchen with a washer, dryer and laundry sink. Storage isn’t a big issue when you’re living in bathing suits and summer cottons; coat closets and boot storage aren’t on the agenda. And for fall nights, fireplaces and electric heaters would be enough, I imagined. On really hot days, you throw open…

THE DESIGNER: Sam Sacks THE LOOK: British bespoke DESIGN BRIEF: Take a kitchen back to its roots with fine craftsmanship and an English-inspired aesthetic SQ.FT: 220 HOUSE & HOME: Where did your design direction come from? SAM SACKS: The homeowners live part-time in London, England, and we were particularly inspired by the fresh takes on old English kitchens coming from U.K. firms like deVOL Kitchens and Plain English. I was excited to run with that and see how it played out in my clients’ beautiful old Toronto home. H&H: The island has a work table vibe that’s particularly English. Can you tell us about it? SS: We knew we wanted a leggy island, but we also needed to incorporate a sink and dishwasher. We decided to install cabinets to the floor on one side and have slim…

picture perfect for christmas

Some people buy a cottage to get away from civilization. Not Nancy Lockhart. Her circa-1840 clapboard biscuit box house is right in the heart of Ontario’s Niagara-on-the-Lake, and the close-knit community there was a big part of the attraction. “You never know if someone’s going to pop by to chat, which I love,” she says. “It’s the antithesis of my house in Toronto, which is surrounded by trees and overlooks a ravine. It’s beautiful, but it’s quite isolated during the winter.” Nancy bought the house in 2016, three years after losing her husband, Murray Frum — a legend in the Toronto art world, a longtime trustee of the Art Gallery of Ontario and a dedicated philanthropist. Nancy goes back and forth from her busy life in Toronto as a corporate director,…
