a celebration of talent and gratitude

I’ve known our Designer of the Year, Anne Hepfer, since the start, when her lovely traditional designs graced our pages beginning in 2008. Since then, Anne has been a perennial favourite with our readers and has continued to wow us, as you can see from her latest work on our cover. Respected by her peers and loved by her clients, she was the natural choice for this year’s top spot on our A-List. Congratulations on this well-deserved honour, Anne! From my chair, there’s so much more to being a great designer than what you see on our pages. The “greats” have something that’s hard to define. Much like a great actor, a great designer has a larger-than-life persona, a point of view that doesn’t waiver, an eagle eye for details, and…

your letters

I love your magazine and have for years. I’ll quickly go through it when it first arrives, then go back through, page by delicious page, for weeks. If your advertisers are wondering how effective their ads are, they are! This is my source for new books, vendors and, this time around, I was reminded to buy a Princess Margaret Home Lottery ticket. Fingers crossed! — KAREY DAVIDSON, Thornbury, Ont. I’m happy to see that the October issue features homes with a more affordable and attainable style. As much as I like to see the designs of luxury homes, this was a breath of fresh air. Keep it up! — ANNE BRISCOE, Renfrew, Ont. I’m a little miffed as to why you put a British home on your cover. Surely there’s one Canadian home, out…

zingaro floral perfumery

“To honour nature by capturing her purity and rawness,” reads the manifesto of Zingaro Floral Perfumery, a floral design studio, perfumery and boutique in Victoria. It was after moving to Canada’s “city of gardens” that Palma Cafolla, who owns the shop with Shane Murray, felt her passion for floral work reignite. “The natural beauty of Vancouver Island reminded me of how much I missed working with botanicals and flowers,” says Palma, a perfumer and florist originally from Dublin. Now, her mission is to transform the area’s natural elements into scents and floral designs. The 750-square-foot shop opened in June in the Old Town area, known for its heritage shops and warehouses. “Walking on Johnson Street on a snowy day, Shane and I came across this beautiful structure,” says Palma. “When…

shayne fox hardware

WHO: Shayne Fox, founder and designer WHERE: Shayne’s cast-bronze hardware is designed and made in Toronto CONNECT: @shaynefoxhardware, THE SCOOP: A production designer in the film industry, Shayne credits downtime between shows for the launch of her namesake hardware studio. “Four years ago, I had this urge to build something that was mine,” she says. “I had also just renovated my kitchen and wanted hardware with an old world feeling. I had a hard time finding anything I liked. Crafting it and making it by hand made sense to me.” PROCESS: Shayne sketches the shapes of her pieces, which include pulls, knobs, hooks and furniture legs, makes moulds, then has the pieces cast at a local foundry. She finishes each piece by hand, lacquering, waxing, plating or blackening them,…

cool, calm and collected

Vancouver designer Andrea Rodman brings her eye for quiet, well-crafted furniture to Hem Interiors, her just-launched online store, making lesser-known Japanese and Scandinavian brands such as Klassik Studio and Ariake Studio available to order within Canada. The Etcetera lounge chair and footstool (far right), 1970s designs by Jan Ekselius for Artilleriet, feel utterly of the moment and are some of Andrea’s favourites.
