There’s something I’ve been struggling with and I think it’s best I get it out in the open: I like stuff. Stuff, however, isn’t fashionable these days. For that we can thank Japanese organizing expert Marie Kondo. Her method, called “KonMari,” is simple: Everything in your home should “spark joy.” If it doesn’t, give it away. You’ll be left with airy, spare rooms that’ll make you feel happier, she says. I thought we’d reached Peak Kondo after her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up came out, but a Netflix show has put the clutter-busting guru back in the spotlight. Sure, Marie has some good advice, like using vertical storage and ridding your home of papers, but she really loses me with her approach to kitchens; she says we shouldn’t keep anything…

The best part of the Trends 2019 issue (January) was Beth’s smart and clever editorial. In a culture that strives to embrace individuality, it’s nice to know creating a unique space from a plethora of design choices is being on-trend! —JOANNE HALL, Calgary I think a good portion of your audience has young families, but you rarely have any articles showing kids’ rooms. Your articles show pretty rooms, but as far as something practical for families, you have a long way to go. —JANICE TAYLOR, Vancouver I find it so interesting to see the approach of H&H to cannabis — with style and acceptance. The accessories featured in the January issue are beautiful objects (if wildly out of my budget!), and the recipes look like a fun entry point for the novice cannabis cook.…

S/H = Buy on GOTTA HAVE IT Artisanal brooms are having a moment. And why shouldn’t they? Built to last and worthy of display, they’re our favourite mashup of art and function. SHOP LES FAISEURS Today’s best coffee shops no longer serve a single purpose, operating instead as a workplace, hangout and eatery all in one. In Montreal’s Little Italy neighbourhood, new caffeine spot Les Faiseurs is mixing up the format yet again with a space that’s part café, part ceramics boutique and part pottery workshop. Local design firm Catherine Catherine helped realize owner Sarah M. St-Arnaud’s vision for a lively, multifunctional space. A wall of windows, perfect for people watching, separates the boutique and café from the workshop so they feel distinct yet connected. The boutique not only showcases Les Faiseurs’ own collection…
