One of my favourite things to do in the weeks after we publish a new issue is to stalk our social media accounts and peek into our inbox. Reading your comments always enlightens me, whether you’re cheering us on or chiding us for a misstep. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that there’s no topic more sensitive than money. And when you don’t think we’re giving you the straight goods, you let us know. (OK, make that two things.) Not long ago, a reader took me to task about my bedroom makeover, featured in our March issue. Specifically, she wanted to talk about an occasional chair (below right) I bought from a hotel liquidation site. “It’s a pet peeve of mine when the homeowner in a story brags about her ‘find’…

I dream of a bathroom with an epic view and welcoming retreat vibes!

I really enjoyed reading the “Sister Act” feature in the April issue. The beautiful photography complemented the article, and I appreciated the before photos for perspective. But it was the sense of family and history that really made the connection for me. I would’ve enjoyed reading more detail about the nine-month renovation and how the family managed during that time. — SHAUNA I enjoy your magazine, but I’m hoping your photographers will start to use the same angles when producing before and after shots of rooms. It’s difficult to see the total impact if there’s a different view used. Hope you see my point? — BRENDA PATERSON Editors’ note: We agree! And while we do strive to shoot our before and after photographs from the same angles, it sometimes isn’t possible — like when…

GOTTA HAVE IT Add fresh zest to rooms with fruit patterns that capture summer’s juiciest colours and playful attitude. INSIDER TIPS Style Wise Designers’ best shortcuts for stunning rooms without the sticker shock. SHEA AND SYD MCGEE, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH “I love classic linen drapery. You can usually find a few yards of 100 per cent linen fabric at discount textile outlets for under $10/yard. We have it made into custom drapes to get the perfect height, nice pleat details and a high-end look.” ALEXANDRE BLAZYS, MONTREAL “My partner Benoit Gérard and I sometimes stretch our budget by using big-box kitchen cabinetry from Ikea or The Home Depot. We dress it up with beautiful hardware and stunning countertops and backsplashes.” OLIVIA BOTRIE, TORONTO “Save money by eliminating a kitchen backsplash and, instead, install a six-inch vertical slab of countertop…
