cottage life

WHEN I LAUNCHED House & Home, I had my wish list of the people I wanted to feature most. It was an ambitious list of who I thought were the best of the best in our business: On my list was Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Nina Campbell, Calvin Klein and Joe Brennan. You see, back then, if you drove past a fabulous restoration of a stately home or a new house to covet, chances were it was the work of Joe Brennan, Canada’s builder to the rich and famous. If I could feature those great style-setters of our time then, surely, our new, fledgling magazine would have a chance, I reasoned. In the first two issues, we landed Ralph and then Joe! The piece was called “The Master Builder” and it featured the…

Nataschia Wielink and Kalin Falconer were sipping mimosas while browsing a pocket-size boutique in Williamsburg, N.Y., when they had a lightbulb moment: “Wouldn’t it be neat if we did something like this?” Kalin recalls asking. The friends returned to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., with the vision of opening their own cabinet of curiosities. Not long after, what used to be a run-down deli was transformed into the down-to-earth emporium that Kalin, an event florist, and Nataschia, a photographer, had imagined. From unique plant pots to eco-friendly Swedish towels to soothing soaps made with essential oils, the boutique is curated with items that are both good-looking and hardworking. The store’s own scented candles (think Grapefruit + Mango and Mint + Eucalyptus) are hand poured in house — the back of the store functions…
