small world

My first house was a 760-square-foot bungalow. It wasn’t the first small space I ever lived in — that dubious “honour” goes to a one-room basement apartment in the late ’90s — but it was the first I could truly call my own. Given the tight footprint, I tried to do everything right: keep the palette light to let the eye travel, choose furniture of an appropriate scale, don’t put too much stuff on display… you know the rules. I was playing it safe and the house showed it, never really reflecting my taste or the things I loved. Fast-forward 15 years and the rules have been flipped over and turned inside out, as you’ll see on page 54. Today, those who call small spaces home have written their own —…

ASHLEY CAPP Photographer, “Above & Beyond” (page 38) Based in Toronto, Ashley captures mouth-watering food in-studio and distinctive interiors on location. Smallest space you lived in? A 750-square-foot condo. I loved not having any stairs and always knowing where my toddler was. Favourite organizing trick? I use the KonMari method for folding clothing and linens. It keeps things compact and allows you to see everything at a glance. CHANTAL BRAGANZA Writer, “It’s All Relative” (page 70) Chantal writes about culture, food and design for The Globe and Mail, Toronto Life and others. What did you love most about living in a small space? It forced me to be very judicious about what I brought into my place. Best tip for living small? Don’t trade too much leisure space for storage. You can own…

What a perfect cover on the June issue to coincide with Beth Hitchcock’s “Counting Costs” editor’s letter. Most readers could never afford the furniture, artwork and accessories shown in homes featured in H&H. Instead, we use them as inspiration for color schemes, layouts, kitchen design, etcetera. However, the fresh, inviting outdoor space on the cover is something anyone could duplicate — even on the most modest budget. Thank you for producing such a wonderful magazine month after month. — SHIRLEY WHITEHURST I just received the June issue, and I can’t help but comment on one of the “Style Files” items: a towel bar for $182 (“Insider Tips”)! Instead, I think I’ll use my money to buy almost eight years of House & Home subscriptions. — JUDITH MARQUAND I love the look of the freestanding…

WILLIAM ASHLEY Entertaining has undergone a style shift — formal dinners and table settings have made way for a more modern, fuss-free style of hosting. Luckily for shoppers, 71-year-old homewares destination William Ashley has changed, too. Its new flagship in Toronto offers the same comprehensive collections and expert advice the company is known for but reads refreshingly contemporary. The design comes courtesy of principal Matt Davis of DesignAgency, the firm behind Toronto’s hip SoHo House and The Broadview Hotel. Arched windows and white walls give the 15,000-square-foot store an airy vibe, while a tea and coffee lounge means picking out china or that perfect housewarming gift is a relaxed experience. CASPER SLEEP SHOP Buying a mattress is actually fun now that Casper is opening stores across Canada. In 2014, the e-tailer disrupted the…

“I like the meticulous detail required to make the most of limited space. You have to think harder, and I like cleverness. I like efficiency”— GEORGE YABU, DESIGNER “How do we make 150 square feet feel spacious, fun and interesting?” This question, common to condo owners everywhere, was the starting point for George Yabu (left) and Glenn Pushelberg’s thoughtful design for the new Moxy microhotel in Times Square, New York. Surprisingly, the answer came, in part, from an 18th-century innovation. The Toronto designers’ version of a wooden Shaker peg rail is mounted to guest room walls as a place to store folding furniture, so visitors can customize their space. “If you want to use the furniture, you take it off the wall and open it up,” says Glenn. Otherwise, adds George,…
