o christmas tree

Come holiday time, I swoon for wreaths with satin ribbons and fragrant, swagged garlands running down stair rails. But let’s face it — no matter how many halls we deck, the focal point of the holidays for those of us who celebrate is The Tree. My mother had very specific ideas about how our tree should be decorated. Every year, we opened the built-in living room cupboards and pulled out boxes and boxes of tissue-wrapped ornaments in her preferred palette of silver and turquoise. No other colours would do. Tinsel — the final touch — was to be applied sparingly. Her annual pleas of “One strand at a time!” were loud enough to drown out the Canadian Brass Christmas album whenever I started tossing handfuls of the sparkly stuff onto every…

LARRY ARNAL Photographer, “Kitchen of the Month” (page 44) A Toronto-based photographer, Larry has been shooting interiors for the past 15 years. Favourite holiday decoration? I love old-fashioned glass ornaments. My wife has beautiful hand-painted pieces that have a prominent place on our tree. What are your tree decorating traditions?

BARBARA SGROI Writer, “Merry & Bright” (page 76) Having written for magazines such as Marie Claire and Flare, Barbara has traded her office for a laptop under a palm tree, living in Mexico with her husband and dogs. Favourite holiday treat? Panettone. Best hostess gift? Anything homemade in a jar. Add a ribbon and a handwritten label, and it’s a gift that looks pretty that can be enjoyed long after the…

I was so moved by your piece on Tassie Cameron’s favourite room (“My Favourite Room,” September)! Being a writer myself, I found so much wisdom in Tassie’s mission to escape her dishwasher and to keep things simple in her “writing shed.” I’m bookmarking this article for the day when I’m finally able to secure a “room of my own.” Thanks so much for the inspiration! — JENNA MCDONALD, Cornwall, Ont. I just picked up your August issue. A few days later, I found out some friends were visiting P.E.I., so I invited them over. I don’t have much time to plan dinner parties, as I operate a seasonal shop, but in a few minutes of bedtime reading, I was inspired by your food feature, “Picnic Perfect”! I served your Avocado Bruschetta as…

bettencourt manor

Since they launched Bettencourt Manor online in 2014 — selling bold wallpapers and fabrics before adding vintage finds in 2017 — Matthew and Rick Bettencourt dreamed of bringing their maximalist look to life. So, in July, the stylish duo stepped forward with their first brick-and-mortar shop in Toronto’s east end. “We have clients who will come in and buy an entire coffee table vignette, taking photos so they can set it up the same way at home,” says Matthew of the shop’s layered tablescapes, styled just-so and flanked by locally upholstered sofas and chairs. Vintage offerings — think Gucci suitcases and shapely vases — are sourced on the couple’s travels. “Last year, we came back from Portugal with an extra suitcase, and then there was our trip to Vermont when…
