a room to love celebrating the kitchen.

HAVE YOU EVER READ AS MUCH about kitchens as you have this past year?

It’s true that we owe our kitchens a debt of gratitude for serving us so well. And so, it’s especially satisfying to be able to deliver this great package, dense with product info and inspiring real-life examples of swoon-worthy kitchens. I thought by now I knew exactly what I wanted in my own country kitchen reno (see page 28). But there were a few things in this issue that stopped me in my tracks and made me rethink some key details just in…

remembering holly

You may have heard that Holly Dyment, one of Canada’s most talented designers, left us this past November at the age of 61, after a heroic battle against lung cancer. I knew Holly from the very beginning of her long career as an incredibly talented colourist and interior designer. In the summer of 1994, Holly won our Style Search contest and graced our cover with her then four-yearold son, Andrew.

Over the years, Holly continued to evolve as an interior designer until she made her leap to jewelry design. Inspired by trips to India, she worked with talented artisans and built a hugely…

your letters

As I live in an isolated but beautiful area, H&H gives me an opportunity to view diverse homes from across the country and find out about recent products. I’ve been expanding my recipe collection, and the Le Killer Chocolate Cookies recipe in “Food News” (November 2020) was a huge hit with my family. It’s definitely a keeper! — BARB MADDEN, Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls, Ont. Your cover photo for the November 2020 issue is terrific! The “Home for the Holidays” spread is one of my all-time favourites. I would love to see more of this kind of presentation: it’s real and wholesome — a great choice for “House & Home of the Month”! — BERYL MACDONALD, Calgary While I can appreciate the minimalist looks you’ve showcased in recent years, the traditional homes in…

“MY FAVOURITE THING IS TAKING SOMETHING THAT NO ONE WOULD WANT AND FINDING THE BEAUTY IN IT”— Alexis Dodd WHO: Designers and makers Alexis Dodd and Fred Masaro, Steelwood Design WHERE: North Vancouver, B.C. CONNECT:, @steelwooddesign THE SCOOP: This father-daughter team handcrafts repurposed wood charcuterie boards, serving trays, bowls and utensils in eye-catching shapes. “Old wood is so much better than new wood — I’ve gone to some crazy places to find it,” says Alexis.

Designer Arren Williams is following his mod collection of furniture for Hudson’s Bay with cheerful pieces for bath and bed. Cotton shower curtains in graphic prints bring fresh energy to bathrooms and can be paired with matching beach towels. “An eyepopping shower curtain is an instant mood-lift to your morning routine,” says Arren. Or wake up a bland bedroom with a duvet set, throws or accent pillows in happy hues such as saffron, turquoise and red ochre.
