the gold standard

It’s not every day you get to see an Olympic gold medal up close, let alone try one on. So when you get the offer — especially when it’s coming from Canadian ice dance legend Tessa Virtue, whose career you’ve followed for years — you say “yes” without hesitation. Our team was shooting at Tessa’s century home in London, Ont., last May when she pulled her prized hardware (two golds from the PyeongChang Games and one from Vancouver) out of — of all places — a kitchen cupboard. Many selfies ensued. The kitchen-cupboard detail stayed with me throughout the day and, looking around, I realized there were no trophies on display or sparkly costumes hanging in the closet. The only evidence of Tessa’s “day job” was a discreet framed photo of…

BRENT DARBY Photographer, “English Charm” (page 54) Based in London, England, Brent shoots his way around Europe and beyond. What accent piece defines your personal style? A Venetian street lamp. I have one in my home as a reminder of the time I spent in Venice. Whose personal style do you admire the most? I visit properties around the world; I love it when I can see the owner’s true personality come through. AMY VERNER Writer, “Dress Code Casual” (page 70) A former style reporter for The Globe and Mail, Amy moved to Paris in 2011 and visits the Louvre every week. Whose personal style do you admire the most? My mother’s: she has a sixth sense for looking relevant while steering clear of fads. What accent piece defines your personal style? Alvar Aalto’s…

your letters

I’ve just finished reading the July issue and have realized why I enjoy House & Home so much. Unlike many home magazines, I think it’s great that you feature the real people behind the redos and include their stories. Please continue to do so and I’ll continue to subscribe. P.S. Beth’s editorials are a plus! — IRENE G. My mother would give a gentle sigh of recognition if she could see your June issue. The fruit-patterned wallpaper on page 25 (“Style Files”) looks like what she had in her kitchen (I especially remember the pineapples!). The sconces on page 32 (“More or Less”) reminded me of my old bedroom, and the cupboards on page 36 (“Tech Talk”) are just like Mom’s mid-’50s reno of our kitchen eating area. Mom would also chuckle…

ssense montréal

FIND IT Ssense Montréal 418 rue Saint-Sulpice Montreal (514) 289-1906 Since 2003, the most cutting-edge destination for luxury fashion hasn’t been a store. Ask any serious style fan: Montreal e-tailer Ssense (pronounced “essence”) has changed the shopping game. Its slick site offers provocative editorial alongside on-trend garments, and draws the coveted millennial customer with its early support for young talent such as Virgil Abloh (now Louis Vuitton’s artistic director for menswear). But for co-founders Rami, Bassel and Firas Atallah, the Ssense experience had room to grow. In May, the brothers opened an equally innovative physical extension — a place where Ssense customers could meet with stylists and interact with items. The 13,000-square-foot store was renovated by renowned global firm David Chipperfield Architects, which has also designed stores for Valentino and Bally. The team inserted a custom…

“A PRINT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, STANDS OUT AND ADDS THAT LITTLE BIT OF ‘EXTRA,’ BOTH TO YOUR HOME AND YOUR WARDROBE”— Pernilla Wohlfahrt, design director, H&M CLOTHING 1 GP & J BAKER +H&M Known for its sellout collaborations with fashion houses such as Stella McCartney, Versace and Lanvin, H&M’s latest collection heads to new territory: a collab with the venerable British fabric design house GP & J Baker. “These days, fashion and interiors really go hand in hand,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s design director. “Interior design takes inspiration from fashion design and vice versa.” GP & J Baker’s classic patterns and motifs have been reimagined as mod geometric-print suits and dreamy floral-print blouses, dresses and jumpsuits. RUGS 2 THE RUG COMPANY + CHRISTOPHER KANE Christopher Kane is no stranger to high-profile partnerships — the London-based fashion…

fall’s must-have design book

“QUITE SIMPLY, LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU LIVE IN A SPACE YOU LOVE”— from Brian Gluckstein: The Art of Home Brian Gluckstein might be Canada’s best-known designer, but most fans are likely more familiar with his popular furniture and bedding collections for Hudson’s Bay than his high-end interiors. His debut book, Brian Gluckstein: The Art of Home, is set to change that. The lush hardcover offers an exclusive peek inside 10 private homes he designed for top-tier clients in Canada and abroad, including a modern mountain retreat outside Aspen, Colo., and Brian’s own Toronto house. For each, he drops valuable insights, such as how to decorate with just one colour and why you shouldn’t be afraid to put bookshelves in a bathroom. “Good design is not a privilege; everyone is entitled…
