LET’S CONNECT @houseandhome @lyndareevesdesign @lyndareeves PERHAPS THE SINGLE BEST PART OF working at House & Home is the chance to visit some of the most exciting homes anywhere. If you’ve wondered how we land the fabulous places we feature, here’s the short answer: pull! Someone with influence starts the ball rolling. Often, it’s the designer or architect, a PR person or a photographer. Sometimes, we get a tip from a friend of a friend… who knows of a place so great that it deserves to be shared. Every week, our editorial team meets to exchange scouting shots that have come in, and we debate which ones to pursue. Diversity is the big buzzword now. We want homes that reflect different cultures, alternate lifestyles and more sustainable solutions for living well. Of course, if a…

your letters

A smile immediately crossed my face when I opened your March issue and saw Lynda was writing the Editor’s Page. For some of us longtime subscribers (more than 20 years), having Lynda back again is a reassuring reminder that not everything we love has to change. —BARB NUGENT, Georgina, Ont. I was thrilled to see the exquisite kitchen designed by Jack Creasy profiled in your March issue (“Secret Ingredient”). Finally, some colour! The most perfect shade of green with that sumptuous brass hardware — simply divine. In my humble opinion, we would all do well to heed the words of interior decorator Dorothy Draper and “banish the beige.” —A.J. BERNE, Etobicoke, Ont. I’m reading the latest March issue and, I have to say, it’s one of the best. I always look forward to my…

ALISON GARWOOD-JONES Writer, “The Big Picture” (page 58) An art historian turned magazine maven, Alison’s written for titles such as Chatelaine, Elle Canada and Applied Arts. What’s your patio style? Cushioned chairs with wide armrests to support my wine-holding arm, and side tables close enough that I don’t have to bend to reach my plate of hors d’oeuvres! Key element of any…

cane do!

Caned rattan is today’s accent of choice, decorating everything from mirrors and wardrobes to bed frames. Now, the motif is taking basic subway tile up a notch. Sunday, Céragrès’ new four- by eight-inch glazed porcelain tiles, can come embellished with a pattern that imitates classic caning, giving walls extra panache. Opt for crisp black or white, or choose from these three dusty desert shades. Sunday porcelain tile in Salvia (on wall), Terra (centre) and Mattone (bottom), from $15/sq.ft. At Céragrès.

sheer beauty

As spring turns our attention to the outdoors, windows suddenly take the spotlight. Sheer drapery in gauzy fabrics softly filters sunlight while still granting privacy. “A faint pattern on a sheer or voile can be wonderful,” says Toronto designer Colette van den Thillart. Okari’s new collection of decorative sheers for Romo offers stripes, botanicals and simple woven textures in restful earth tones. “IT’S AN ETHEREAL LOOK THAT DOESN’T COMMAND UNDUE AMOUNTS OF ATTENTION”—Colette van den Thillart Romo (Sheer Beauty), Table, Tom Faulkner; lamp, Heathfield & Co (Sheer Beauty)…
