spring fever

Last week, I did my annual winter trip to NYC to see what’s new in the stores and showrooms. I lined up 26, including old favourites like Gracious Home and ABC Carpet, and a crop of new ones — mostly in Brooklyn — where some of the most creative storefronts are located. At first it was depressing. My favourites are a shadow of their former selves. Gracious Home is just one store with sheets, towels and tabletop, plus a few accessories. ABC has consolidated into one building, with a shiny new glass elevator, one floor of carpets and very little furniture. The famous bedding and bath floor is now on the basement level and is smaller.

TOMMY SMYTHE Writer, “Southern Accent” (page 44) Besides being a contributing editor for H&H, Tommy’s hard at work writing his design memoir. Biggest lesson learned during a makeover?

I quickly devoured your February issue and noted with interest the article on the renovation of the house in Baby Point, believed to have belonged to James Baby’s family (“True to Character”). It’s a small world! We have a stone Loyalist-style house near Perth, Ont., on land that was first deeded in the Perth Military Settlement to James Baby, a forebear, in 1799. We were interested to see that the Baby family eventually settled in the Toronto area, having never occupied the land in Perth. —SUSAN CARTWRIGHT, Perth, Ont. I was contemplating not renewing my subscription until I read the article “Shake It Up” in your February issue. It’s been some time since you’ve featured articles illustrating that style of decorating — the look being so contemporary today — so I was…

GOTTA HAVE IT Reactive glaze ceramics in glossy water and pastel hues are the prettiest way to bring spring colours to a modern table. DECORATING APRIL FLOWERS You don’t have to wait until May to enjoy spring’s prettiest blooms. Cole & Son’s new Pearwood wallpaper collection brings flowering vines, plump roses and rambling wildflower fields indoors, turning walls into vertical gardens. Inspired by the brand’s archival block prints, the wallpapers reinvigorate classic designs with contemporary colourways. The effect is lush and lavish. Best of all: these blossoms will stay fresh for years to come.
