EACH ISSUE OF HOUSE & HOME is a labour of love, but our annual Trends issue is my personal favourite. It begins with a lively editorial meeting, where everyone shares who or what is catching their eye, and where they think design is headed. This year, our conversations gravitated to topics such as supporting independent makers, the merits of antibacterial surfaces and the transformation of outdoor spaces from summer escapes to year-round social hubs. These ideas and many more fill out our Trends roundup (starting on page 62) and come back to what we all desire right now: to make the most of our homes. As editor of the magazine’s Style Files section, I cover the ideas, people and places shaping the design scene. When I interview designers, many of them…

Wow! What a great issue (November 2020) with so much Christmas! Especially, “_’Tis the Season,” “Home for the Holidays” and “Picture Perfect for Christmas.” Keep up the great work! — SUZANNE EDEN, Burlington, Ont. Your November issue has always been my favourite. You definitely did not disappoint this year! I loved every page and every home, but Nancy Lockhart’s Niagara-on-the-Lake vacation home (“Picture Perfect for Christmas”) struck a chord! — NANCY NEWTON, St. Margarets Bay, N.S. I love your magazine and I’m a longtime subscriber, but I had a chuckle when I read “The More the Merrier” (November 2020) and your editorial director said the team had responded to readers wanting more Christmas glam. Then you featured (with a couple of notable exceptions including “_’Tis the Season”) such minimally decorated homes that they could…

Comfortable upholstered seating. Enough of the stiff, curvy perch chairs! What room are you dying to renovate and why? I’m spending a lot more time in my kitchen these days — I’d love for it to be more functional and pretty. EMILY EVANS Writer, “On the Same Page” (page 82) The freelance writer and design project manager shares her circa-1940s Hamilton home with her partner, Tim, and Fran, a rescue dog from The Bahamas.

COOL COLLAB Notes for Home Ikea’s new Osynlig collection of scented candles is the aromatic outcome of the brand’s latest high-profile collaboration, this time with Byredo founder Ben Gorham. Born in Sweden and raised in Toronto by an Indian mother and Canadian father, Ben was well-poised to develop fragrances with global appeal — think sandalwood and vanilla, Swedish birch and juniper, tea leaves and verbena — that spark nostalgic memories of home. Q&A HOW DID YOU SETTLE ON THE FINAL 13 FRAGRANCES? We worked with all ages, genders and backgrounds to collect as much data as possible. We started to see how scent connects people: an 18-year-old girl’s thoughts about the smell in her home could resonate with an 80-year-old man in Japan. The three bases — floral, woody and fresh — are the…
