small wonders, big vistas

What is it about small structures that appeal to so many of us? If you saw the wonderful film Nomadland, you’ll remember the scene where Frances McDormand’s character, Fern, flees the generous guest room in the house where she’s staying for the safety of her vintage built-out van. She climbs into the back, sinks into her tiny bunk and sighs with relief. You can just feel the stress roll off her and I, for one, felt the same visceral reaction to escaping that house. By the end of the film, I was even feeling that impulse to live like a turtle with my home on my back. Have you noticed these days that there are more than a few options for lovers of tiny buildings? Besides the new prefab options for…

ALL ABOUT CHICKENS We can’t remember getting more letters about one coverline than we did for our June issue, featuring Rosie Daykin feeding her chickens alongside a line about Nigella Lawson’s fried chicken sandwich recipe. Some of you were offended but, fortunately, most of you found it funny — including Rosie! I was quite saddened to see the words, “It was a drab, rather ugly house in a classic Tudor style” (“View,” April), referring to the beautiful home from the “Well Travelled” feature. Yes, the end result is both bold and beautiful, but the home was just tired, not ugly. Please remember that the “_’ol gal of a Tudor” was once someone’s beloved home — tired, but not ugly. — DIANNE QUINN, Vernon, B.C. I absolutely adore the “House & Home of the Month”…

GOTTA HAVE IT Mod sling chairs marry the ease of a hammock with a sleek frame, giving patios or balconies the best of style and comfort. SHOP WOLF & MOON Toronto lifestyle boutique Wolf & Moon opened last November, born out of owner Leah Miller’s passion for finding the perfect gift. The 650-square-foot space, designed by Leah herself, is a haven of personally curated finds tucked into the city’s Rosedale neighbourhood. Airy, bright and full of soft neutrals, the store has a classic yet modern interior. “I was inspired by boutiques I’ve shopped at and loved throughout my travels,” says Leah. “I wanted to create a cool space that makes people feel warm and happy when they visit.” Home, fashion, beauty and wellness items line wooden shelves lit by natural light coming from the…

saving the best for last

It was always in our plans to rebuild the original screened porch on the back of our lakehouse. I’ve never had a screened porch. I’ve visited friends’ cottages on buggy evenings and sat in theirs, happily unaware of the mosquitoes lurking beyond. Here, at our place, there are these tiniest of bugs called midges that swarm every time we open a door and are so thick you have to avoid swallowing them. I’m told they’ll soon disappear, only to be replaced by blackflies, mosquitoes, deerflies and the occasional bat. I can hardly wait. It’s late May and the midges just evaporated! The screens are almost all in, the furniture has arrived, the rest of the bits and pieces are coming someday, and I can hardly wait for it to be done! For…
