A toast to the host
THANK YOU!
Show your appreciation by arriving at the party with something
special for the host. Here are a few of my go-to gifts.
A favourite vintage
A chic and reusable wood-veneer
box is perfect for presenting a
bottle of wine.
Stylish succulents
A small plant in a colourful
takeout box is easy to carry
and totally charming.
Lovely linens
Your host can never have too many
tea towels during party season.
These will look great in any kitchen.
P.S. Follow me throughout
party season on twitter.com/

I would like to be able to say that I’m the consummate entertainer,
throwing parties every weekend and thriving on the planning and execution
of the perfect event. It’s a nice idea, but the truth is I’m far happier being
a guest than a host. I’ve only recently begun to feel comfortable in the
kitchen, and it has taken me a long time to work up the courage to throw a
dinner party — but I’m working on it. Luckily for me, I’m blessed with lots of
fabulous foodie friends who love to gather people around their tables. At the
end of a busy week, I’m more than thrilled to oblige. And I return the favour
by being ready with lots of furniture-arranging tips and colour advice!
As a reluctant host, I’m in awe of people who pull it off and make it look
easy. As a frequent guest, I’ve learned it’s the little things that make an
occasion successful. Nothing makes guests feel more welcome than when
you personally greet us at the door and get us settled with a glass of wine or
champagne. We also love when you roll with the punches. I once mistook
the date on an invitation to an Oscar party and showed up a day early. My
hosts were throwing a casual get-together for friends, who I assumed were
part of the Oscar fête. I was mortified when I realized my mistake, but my
gracious hosts quietly replanned their menu and insisted I stay. They
handled the mix-up with such aplomb that any embarrassment flew out the
window and it was a memorable night for all of us. I know I’ll never forget it!
In the end, having a home full of happy guests doesn’t come down to the
decor, the theme or the menu. (It’s taken me years to realize that even my
culinary friends are just as content with simple pasta and a good bottle of
wine as a five-course meal that includes beef bourguignon.) The key to
being a great host is remembering to relax and have a good time. When
you’re having fun, your guests will, too, and the party will flow naturally.
With this in mind, I plan to throw a few more parties than usual this
holiday season. I’m still not likely to host a really big bash, but I’ll eventually
work my way up to a larger affair — and maybe even beef bourguignon.
My dear friend (and constant
party partner) Mark Challen
and me at the always-festive
LG Innovators’ Ball.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE
WAY TO ENTERTAIN?
ANGUS FERGUSSON: “Potlucks, because we’re
into other people’s cooking. As the homeowners in
our group of friends, we contribute the venue!”
Angus’s passion for photography blossomed at
the not-so-tender age of 20, when his mother
gave him a 35mm Nikon for Christmas. To date,
his photography has appeared in, among others,
Canadian Family and Toronto Life. For this issue, he
shot “More or Less” (page 42), “Living” (page 94),
“Cold Comforts” (page 152) and much more.
CRAILLE MAGUIRE GILLIES: “I like to keep it simple:
red wine, a wood-burning fire, music and a small
group of people so we can have good conversations.”
Currently based on the West Coast as an editor at
Vancouver magazine, St. Marys, Ont.-born Craille has
lived in five provinces over the past 10 years. While
traversing the world (“Have flight-approved dog
kennel, will travel”), she has written for Cottage Life,
Canadian Geographic and The Globe and Mail. For
this issue, she wrote “Storewatch” (page 32).
RUTH GANGBAR: “I’m so busy working that I don’t
entertain that often, but when I do, I’m really more of
a spontaneous cook — I like to prepare meals using a
lot of simple, fresh and local ingredients.”
Ruth divides her time between Toronto and Prince
Edward County, Ont., where this holiday, she might
be found cooking at the woodstove. Her delectable
work has graced the pages of Food & Drink and
Cottage Life. For this issue, she styled “Cold
Comforts” (page 152).

H&H DECEMBER 2010 28
I was simply going to peruse your latest
issue (October 2010), then settle down
later when I had more time. No way! From
the cover of the magazine to the final
page, I was riveted. The growth and
maturation of this mag is commendable.
— CHICK RICE, Vancouver
Shame on you for featuring shagreen
products (“Gotta Have It”) in your August
issue! Stingrays may not be cute and
fuzzy, but that does not mean they have
less value as living creatures. That “luxe
look and tantalizing texture” is available
in faux shagreen, as well. Why not
promote that?
— SARA GIBSON, Stony Plain, Alta.
I look forward to your beautiful magazine
every month. Unfortunately, my eyesight
is failing somewhat and I have trouble
reading very fine-lined, light lettering.
As a baby boomer, I believe I’m one of a
large percentage of your readers who are,
or will be, experiencing similar vision
problems. Perhaps you may be able to
address this concern in the near future.

FIND IT: 361 St. Paul St. W., Montreal
(514) 750-0311 or atabletoutlemonde.com
HISTORY: À Table tout le monde (which
means “Come to the table, everybody”)
opened in Old Montreal in December 2008
as a destination for beautiful artisan-made
objects for the table. “I ask people to touch
the pieces so they can appreciate them more,”
says owner Claire Renaud.
STYLE: With its exposed stone walls and plank
wood floor, the shop could easily pass for one
of the swish lofts or boutique hotels that dot
the neighbourhood. The smartly curated
selection includes homegrown finds, such as
porcelain dishes by Quebec ceramist Louise
Bousquet and handcrafted glasses from
Vancouver’s Molo Design, as well as global
imports. Japanese lacquered bowls sit
alongside textiles, dishes and glassware from
France, the Netherlands, Kenya and beyond.
BEST BUYS: Montreal-based Ceramik B.
created a limited-edition line of eggshell-
thin porcelain for the shop that delivers
museum quality without collector’s prices
($34 to $50). Flatware with black resin
handles has the look of ebony but can
be popped into the dishwasher ($79 to
$102/5-piece set).

PROFILE
WHO: Nikole Herriott, Herriott Grace
WHERE: Toronto, (416) 312-0746 or herriottgrace.com
WHAT: Hand-carved wooden spoons and bowls, linen tea
towels, cookie cutters, cake flags and pedestal plates.
THE SCOOP: To remind Herriott of home, her father,
Lance, began mailing her packages of the wooden spoons
he hand-makes in his Victoria workshop. A trained
pastry chef, Herriott found inspiration in her father’s
creations and began an online store that has since
expanded to include new designs and collaborations.
STANDOUTS: Pedestal plates and bowls in gorgeously
grained woods like bird’s-eye maple and red cedar.
TEAMWORK: Cloud-shaped cookie cutters are made by a
tinsmith in northern Ontario, then topped with wooden
handles from her dad. Two artists —
one U.K.-based, the other in the
U.S. — are illustrating prints for
hand-sewn kitchen linens.
UP NEXT: Porcelain pieces made
in Montreal. — BETH EDWARDS

GUEST SPEAKERS
Perfect for a guest bedroom, recycled-
cardboard speakers are a crafty alternative
to the sleek look of most tech and have the
added appeal of being customizable. Dress
up blank speakers with ribbon, paint, pen,
a sprig of berries or whatever strikes your
fancy. Whether you go baroque or keep it
simple, the final look is pretty for pennies.
(They’re only $20 a pair!) To power them
up, simply plug the speakers into an MP3
player — being able to play their own tunes
will help guests feel instantly at home.

STYLE IDEA
For dinner parties, Montreal stylist Nicola Marc
fashions pretty placecards from simple office
supply tags. Here’s how:
1. Use a paint pen to monogram round metal-
rim tags with the first letter of a guest’s name.
2. Loop ribbon through the tags, then tie them
around colourful cups or bud vases filled with
posies and place them at each setting.
3. Once guests find their spot, move cups to the
middle of the table to become a centrepiece.

DESTINATION
An alpine ski resort forgoes log-cabin clichés for a new take on mountain style.
Having endured two rather-painful knee surgeries,
the mere thought of winter sports makes me
shudder. (Being held hostage inside a taxidermy-
and-plaid-blanket-bedecked lodge while my friends
head for the hills leaves me, well, cold.) The new
22-room Alpaga hotel and lodge near the famous ski-
resort town of Megève, France, however, will warm
the hearts of those seeking style beyond the slopes.
Open since last winter, its grey pine walls, black-
framed picture windows and blond-wood furniture

In this issue, Amy Verner’s feature article on the 2010
Princess Margaret Lottery showhouse tells the story of
our fantasy “house in the Hamptons” (page 122). This is
H&H’s fourth showhouse, and I hope you’ll agree it’s the
best one yet. We’ve all swooned over sleek minimalist
interiors, but the truth is classic rooms, softly layered,
are the real crowd-pleasers.
In fact, some of my favourite details are the most
traditional — like the Welsh dresser in the dining
room. It was custom-made by the craftsmen at Sharon
O’Dowd Antiques in Toronto. I chose to paint it a soft
taupe shade so it would stand out from the warm white
walls, then added matte black iron hardware for
contrast. The surprise came when we were able to find
glazed pottery in the exact same shade at Crate &
Barrel. The tone-on-tone effect of the ceramics against
the painted beadboard is strong and graphic.
Another dining room detail that really works is the
Laura Ashley linen floral. When is the last time you
considered floral-patterned drapes and matching
skirted slipcovers on your dining chairs? It sounds
terribly sweet but looks anything but. The secret is the
muddy colour of the chintz, anchored by the ebony-
stained table and dark iron chandelier.
Favourite
Moments
Lynda Reeves takes you
behind the scenes of our
stunning new showhouse.
SEE SOURCE GUIDE
In the “girls’ room,” chintz paired
with embroidered sheets by John
Robshaw made a jaunty statement.
Some of our paints (clockwise from top left):
Churlish Green (251) by Farrow & Ball in the
powder room; Cast Off (66) by Para for the
upstairs guest room; Melt Down (9) by Para
in the kitchen; and Para’s Big Girls Don’t Cry
(67) for the girls’ room.
Sometimes, simple is best, like these glazed
dishes from Crate & Barrel that filled the
custom Welsh dresser and the Laura Ashley
linen floral for the drapes and slipcovers.
Chunky seagrass woven mats add
texture to the dining room.
The dreamy yellow upstairs guest
room features the famous Hanna
chair from Oly.

There are other nostalgic moments
I think are very special. Take the black
shutters in the sunroom: the narrow
slats are a nod to the conservatories from
Victorian times. The combination of full-
length black shutters and a classic wood
ceiling fan gently whirling over dark
wicker armchairs is hard to beat.
Another is the round window in the
powder room. That was pure Gordon
Ridgely, our star architect. To draw
attention to it, we painted it high-gloss
quince green (Churlish Green (251),
Farrow & Ball) against eggshell walls the
same colour. High-gloss paint dresses up
a room, adding sparkle and formality to
plain old drywall or simple wood trim.
“Pretty” isn’t a word we often
associate with today’s best interiors. But
I was at the door when visitors entered
our unabashedly pretty guest room, and
I can tell you, “pretty” sells. We were
inspired by Bruton Damask, a new linen
floral by Jane Churchill. The palette of
creams and greys meant buttercream
walls and antiqued white furniture by
Oly from Cocoon. Like all Oly designs,
the Hanna bed and matching armchair
are fresh takes on the familiar. If you’re
a moviegoer, you would have noticed this
chair in Diane Keaton’s bedroom in
Something’s Gotta Give. OK, so you’re on
to me. For more on how this famous
movie house inspired us, see page 122.
The whole second floor feels romantic,
due in part to the low ceilings that have a
cottage feel. We kept the furniture high
to further exaggerate the feeling. After
standing in the living room, with its
soaring cathedral ceiling, there’s a drama
to the surprise of cosier heights upstairs.
And then there is the kitchen….
Sometimes a showhouse is, for me, a way
to live vicariously. This is the kitchen
I want. Minus an island, with serious
chef’s-grade appliances and the romance
of a big table and chairs smack in the
middle, it’s a place you never want to
leave. What could be better? Well,
winning this house for one thing! My
best wishes to you and yours for a happy
new year.

One suspects designer Jonathan Adler has a great
sense of humour just by looking at his cheeky designs.
Reading the not-so-fine print on his website confirms
it. Take his latest bio entry: “Tapped to design a real-life
Malibu Dream House to celebrate Barbie’s 50th. Can
finally make amends for decapitating sister’s Barbie in
1974.” It’s the same gleeful irreverance that put
canisters labelled “Prozac” and zebra-shaped rugs
decorated with the Union Jack in fashionable homes.
This is Adler’s stylish sleight of hand: he’s able to
integrate lightheartedness into serious design ideas.
His Deco-inspired animal sculptures come to mind
first, but he has a large body of other work to prove it,
including housewares, accessories, textiles, furniture,
lighting and stationery. “I believe design should come
with a dose of levity,” he says. “Things can be beautiful
and high-minded while still being happy.”
Happiness is not only a state of being for Adler but
an approach to business. His Happy Chic brand makes
design approachable and fun. And he has just released
two new books, Accessorizing and Colors (Sterling,
2010), that strive to bring his joyful ethos to the masses.
Adler fell in love with pottery as a child, and his
works now include elegant sculptures and collector’s
pieces. He became a household name after opening
eponymous retail stores in Miami, Chicago, San
Francisco and New York. And he appeared as a judge
on Bravo’s Top Design. But what Adler values most is
time at home with his husband, Simon Doonan,
creative director for Barneys New York, and their
beloved Norwich terrier, Liberace.

INTERVIEW
H&H DECEMBER 2010 54
House & Home: Is there one area of design
you’re most excited by these days?
Jonathan Adler: Just more, more, more!
I’m happiest designing new stuff.
H&H: Are you still most passionate about
pottery, though?
JA: I am, first and foremost, a potter.
I was 12 when I first tried pottery at
summer camp. I’d gone to be a soccer
star, but then I laid eyes on the superfoxy
pottery teacher and decided to take his
class instead. The minute I touched clay,
I was obsessed and I’ve been passionate
about it ever since.
H&H: Are you from a creative family?
JA: Yes. We lived in a remote farm town,
but my parents were urban refugees.
Many of my design influences are from
my childhood. I was brought up in a very
groovy house. My dad was a rigorous
modernist, so the house was all white and
full of Knoll furniture. My mother has a
more colourful and exuberant spirit, so
she accessorized our pad with lots of
Marimekko fabrics and nifty trouvés.
H&H: How much hands-on work do you
do these days?
JA: A ton. All of our prototypes are
handmade in my pottery studio in SoHo.
H&H: What do you think is your most
successful design?
JA: That’s a tough one, because I love
all my stuff. My fave piece — at this
moment — might be my Horse Tray. I love
how all the lines flow into each other.
I know something is good when it looks
like it’s supposed to be that way. Good
design almost feels revealed rather than
created — like it was always there,
waiting to be discovered.
H&H: Do you feel you had a lucky break
at any point in your career?
JA: After college, I worked in the movie
business for several years and got fired
from every job I had. So I gave up and
decided to become a potter. When
I showed my pots to a buyer at Barneys,
I got an order. The rest is history.

personal style? CONTINUED

JA: I’m definitely rooted in modernism,
but in a maximalist way. I embrace bold
colours, groovy graphics and modern
forms and put them all together in my
mental blender. Graphic patterns are
always beautiful and make you feel
happy. My motto is: Classical foundation,
playful punctuation. It’s the little
gestures — a bright orange lacquered tray
or a needlepoint pillow that says “Pill” —
that make a home fun and memorable.
H&H: Whose style do you most admire?
JA: My husband’s. He puts on a Liberty
shirt with a jacket and tie and looks fab.
H&H: Do you follow anyone on Twitter?
JA: I follow Robert Verdi and Kathy
Griffin, because they are always doing
cool things and are hilarious. I also
keep up with people I work with at
Design*Sponge and Apartment Therapy.
H&H: Describe your own home.
JA: Our New York apartment is really
great. We’re lucky to have a big space; it’s
an ever-changing laboratory of my new
stuff. It’s eccentric and bold and
colourful and very personal. I love it.
H&H: What’s a perfect night out?
JA: It’s actually a perfect night in.
Dinner with my bloke watching the “holy
trifecta” of Intervention, Hoarders and
Lockup — we have an inexplicable love
for depressing documentary TV —
followed by a game of ping-pong in the
living room. I always win.
H&H: Do you often entertain at home?
JA: Yes. Every workday is chaotic, so the
idea of a loud restaurant at the end of the
day is deeply disturbing. So we always
have friends over for dinner. Simple
fare — roasted chicken, apple pie, grilled
veggies — and a game of ping-pong to
aid digestion.
H&H: Any advice for others who find
entertaining stressful?
JA: Host a buffet dinner with comfort
food and serve yourself first — it takes
the pressure off everyone.
H&H: How has working with Aid to
Artisans enriched your life?
JA: It’s always rewarding to work with
organizations that are enhancing the
lives of others. I’m really proud to have
created hundreds of jobs in Peru.
H&H: What are you most proud of?
JA: That I have stayed true to myself,
and my dream of being a potter, after
all these years.

Whether it’s for 20 or 200, Sebastien Centner can really throw a party.
The event planner and caterer is currently writing a book filled with quick
tips and ideas for everyday hosts to impress their guests. As director of
Toronto’s trendsetting Eatertainment Special Events & Catering, he’s
responsible for planning some of the most glamorous parties in the
country, including soirées for high-profile actors and politicians (a certain
Mr. Pitt and Mr. Clinton have been clients). Eatertainment also runs
Toronto’s iconic Bloor Street Diner and Panorama restaurants, and is
behind big charity events, including the annual Fashion Cares gala, which
Sebastien co-chaired for a number of years. But, glitz and glamour aside,
Sebastien relishes entertaining, no matter who is on the guest list.
He entertains often in his own home, giving VIP treatment to family and
friends. A simple trick he employs frequently is using guests’ names in table
settings. “People like to see their name. It makes them feel special,” he says.
Sebastien’s goal is always to give that extra bit to make guests feel like the
night was about them in some way. He and his wife, Sheila, renovated their
wartime bungalow to better accommodate their never-ending rotation of
guests, as well as life at home with their children, Logan, 9, and Colsen, 12.
“A good friend always jokes that our door only opens inward.”

“This is one of my favourite things
ever. We have friends write on index
cards their reflections of the night or
their favourite part, then put them in
the box. We can drop photos in as
well. I have a great smile on my face

we had years ago.” Art (above),

Do you entertain at your home often?
Sebastien Centner: We have people over all the time.
My wife calls me a serial entertainer. I can come off
doing parties for the Toronto International Film
Festival and want to have more people over. Growing
up, we always had friends around.
Are there any new trends in entertaining that excite you?
SC: I’m really happy to see that people are entertaining
more. It’s like what happened in home decor 15 years
ago; it just exploded and, now, there’s 100 different
shows on design. People are more sophisticated. And
I think the same thing is happening now to
entertaining. It’s getting a lot more coverage. What
I love about this is that it’s bringing entertaining to
everyone. And I like the LFP movement [local flavour
plus] that’s based on the 100-Mile Diet.
What about specific food items?
SC: Companies are coming out with all different types
of spices, flavoured sugars and salts. It’s very trendy.
What is your pet peeve as a host?
SC: My pet peeve is when someone doesn’t let you know
that they have dietary restrictions. If someone shows
up and they don’t eat fish, for example, I’ll figure out
something for them, but it’s better to be able to plan in
advance. It goes back to making people feel special.
What is the best type of guest?
SC: They arrive and leave in a taxi, so they can have a
great time and not worry about driving. They arrive on
time and don’t ever feel they have to leave. And they
come back often — it’s not about what people bring us,
or anything like that. We are stocked already.
What do you like to bring as a hostess gift?
SC: I’ll bring a bottle of champagne and, the next day,
send flowers as a thank-you when they can enjoy them
better. Or I’ll bring two bottles of wine — one to have
with dinner and one that the hosts can enjoy together,
just the two of them. Or some great sugars and salts
would be nice.
What is the best host gift you’ve ever received?
SC: Someone came over once who didn’t know us well,
and they brought a bottle of wine for us and a couple of
Disney movies for the kids. It was so nice. It gave the
kids something fun to do while we were having dinner.
What makes a party memorable?
SC: I want people to feel special when

As owner of the shop Angus & Company, designer
Michael Angus has an eye for bringing just the right
accessories together. Here, he used an understated
burlap tablecloth to set the tone for classic navy and
green tartan — the only hit of colour and pattern on
the table. He made the white dinner plate feel special
by layering it between a gold-rimmed glass charger and
a white dinner plate with subtle beading. Horn-
handled serving pieces are a rugged addition that
creates contrast with the crystal drop candelabra and
silver candlesticks, which add festive sparkle.

roots: timeless and

A traditional toile rendered in brilliant orange and hot
pink was the inspiration for designer Anne Hepfer’s
“classic preppy–turned–feminine chic” setting. She
dressed up the plain white plate by grounding it with
a brushed-gold charger and adding a luxe patterned
salad plate on top, which introduces blue to cool off the
warm-toned scheme. Whimsical details, like the
enamel butterfly napkin ring and handwritten
placecard that looks like a gift tag, keep the look fun
without detracting from its formality.

“Splurge on a fabulous textile
and have it made into a
tablecloth for special
occasions or even just to give
your dining room a fresh look”

TIP: Place a sheet of glass
over your tablecloth to
protect it from spills and
younger dinner guests.

Inspired by a Belgian farmhouse aesthetic, Jane
Charron deftly blended pattern and texture by sticking
with a mostly neutral palette. A small silver bird and a
pewter dish holding tiny blue robin’s eggs cleverly
reference the accent plate’s pattern in a sophisticated
way. As the final flourish, Charron introduced a small
arrangement of white flowers, and red berries are a
loose and natural but festive touch.

A well-stocked bar is a must-have for avid
entertainers — and never more so than
during the holiday season. By corralling
bottles and glassware in one compact place,
this do-it-yourself caddy is perfect for a small
space or as a second drink station. It’s also
inexpensive to make, especially if you already
have a side table that could use sprucing up.
When cocktail hour is over, simply roll it out of
the way until it’s ready to be used again.
1. Choose a small wood table I used an
inexpensive side table from Ikea, which I
chose for its cool mod aesthetic. I also like
that it has a second shelf, which can be used
to store wineglasses and crystal. Once
you’ve chosen a table, drill holes in the base
of each leg and screw in casters.
2. Cover the tabletop with cork Cut a piece
of cork 2" smaller than the surface of the
tabletop. The cork will protect the surface
and help prevent bottles from sliding about.
If your table is round, use a protractor to
draw a circle on the sheet of cork, then cut it
out using a utility knife. Adhere the cork to
the tabletop with contact cement.
3. Add a guardrail A decorative chain rail
gives the cart a polished look. I chose a brass
ball chain, which is sold at most hardware
stores, and diamond-shaped eye hooks to
create geometric interest. With a pencil,
mark eight evenly spaced points around the
perimeter of the tabletop about 1" in from
the edge. Drill holes at each point and screw
in the eye hooks. Cut the chain to size with
pliers, loop it through the hooks and close
with its fixed clasp.
project: Transform a side table into
a handy bar cart.
what you’ll need:
Side table, 4 casters, sheet of
cork, 5' of brass ball chain,
8 eye hooks, contact cement

Open-House Secrets
17 easy ways to set the stage for a stylish soirée.
In the Living Room
1. Clear off tables and one or two shelves on
bookcases or built-ins to provide spots for
guests to place glasses and plates.
2. Group hurricane lanterns in the fireplace.
They give off a warm glow without the heat or
hazard of an open fire in a room full of people.
3. Replace a bulky coffee table with multiple
cocktail-sized tables, which take up less floor
space and can be easily moved.
4. Swap out a side table for a compact bar
cart that can serve as a beverage-refill station,
complete with premixed drinks, liquor,
garnishes and extra glasses. It will help lure
people out of the kitchen and encourage
guests to help themselves.

5. Replace art with an oversized mirror
so partygoers can check on windblown
hair before entering the festivities.

In the Dining Room
10. Line shelves that usually hold
cookbooks with glasses and extra bottles
of mineral water.
11. Set up food buffet-style on the dining
room table. Decorate it with tall branches
hung with a few ornaments; they add a
festive note but won’t get in the way of
people’s ability to move and socialize
around the table.
12. Pull chairs away from the table to allow
for better flow around the buffet.
13. Drape the buffet table with a floor-
length cloth and stash boxes and empty
bottles underneath to keep the area
clean and clutter-free.

monogrammed towels, available in party or

golden honey. Don’t forget the

relax after the party’s over.

Flowers are always a favourite,
but instead of bringing them
straight from the florist in
unattractive cellophane, present
them in a lovely keepsake vessel.
A footed silver bowl with
embossed detailing gives
all-white blooms more impact.
For a longer-lasting plant,
consider a mini topiary planted
in an aged terracotta pot. A time-

the instant centrepiece!

that appeal to your hosts’

BUILDING BLOCKS
Classic Comfort
Warm up a bathroom with a mix
of soft textiles and pattern.
Produced by ANDREA MILLS | Text by KATIE GOUGEON
There’s nothing more luxurious than a warm, relaxing bath on a cold winter night,
and this cosy yet sophisticated bathroom invites you to indulge. Carefully crafted by
New York designer Matthew Patrick Smyth, the space exudes warmth through a mix
of classic patterns, textures and vintage finds. Traditional elements, like the antique
candle sconces and small-print Casa di Whitney wallpaper by Tyler Hall, are decidedly
English country, but the dark wood flooring and side table add urban appeal. In place
of a bathmat, a soft flatweave rug adds elegance, while a tiny oil painting hung low
injects one-of-a-kind charm and purposely invokes escapist thoughts. At the heart of
the room, a generous antique white clawfoot tub, fitted with a vintage-style telephone
faucet, conjures thoughts of long, rejuvenating soaks.
Printed carpet
An ample flatweave rug in muted
plaid introduces soft texture underfoot.

1. MAXIMIZE STORAGE To-the-ceiling
cabinets, an entire wall of drawers and
a generous pantry were installed to
provide plenty of closed storage.
2. ADD LUXE LAYERS Statuario marble
introduces understated richness on
the countertops, especially the island,
where it’s extended down one side,
waterfall-style.
3. CREATE CONTINUITY Rich bare
oak floors unite the kitchen, eating area
and adjoining family room and provide
a soft contrast to the light finishes.
4. DO THE UNEXPECTED White
cabinets in a reverse-shaker style
(the middle panel is raised rather than
recessed) put a twist on traditional,
while crystal pulls add subtle sparkle.
5. UPDATE THE FIXTURES The
squared-of chrome faucet and
stainless-steel apron sink are on trend
but will stand the test of time.
6. GET CREATIVE A simple glass
vase was flipped and converted into
a contemporary light fixture with
stunning results at a low cost.
7. GO CUSTOM A specially made
54"-diameter stainless-steel table
provides ample seating without
occupying too much space.
8. CURATE CAREFULLY Nature-
inspired etchings in moody black
and white add visual interest to the
otherwise-bare walls and create a
backdrop for the eat-in area.
9. TEMPER WITH TEXTILES Soft linen
in a warm neutral on the pendant
drum shade and a simple roller blind
brings warmth into the cool palette.
10. MAKE IT SEAMLESS Panelling
that camouflages the refrigerator
and dishwasher, plus a barely there
induction cooktop, keep the look
crisp and clean.
CAMERON MACNEIL’S TOP 10 TIPS
FOR MODERNIZING AN
OUTMODED ALL-WHITE KITCHEN.
From Dated to Timeless
PROBLEMATIC
LAYOUT
An inconvenient
diagonal corner, a
poorly positioned
door (not shown) and
a bulky peninsula
disrupted any sense
of flow the space may
have had. A wall
separating the eating
area from the family
room made the
kitchen feel closed in.
LIFELESS PALETTE
Featureless laminate
cabinets and
countertops were
boring and outdated,
and the white
appliances were also
showing their age.
The plain white
ceramic tile floor
and a subway-tile
backsplash were
mismatched and
gave the space a
sterile feel.
AWKWARD
EAT-IN
Four oversized
outdoor-style
wicker dining
chairs looked out
of place and were
crowded around
the small, round
eat-in table.
THE PALETTE
Though the kitchen itself is generously sized, the space
wasn’t being used to its full potential, and the old finishes
looked tired and lacked contrast. Virtually unchanged
since the house was built 40 years ago, the room was
in definite need of an update. The homeowners are avid
cooks and wanted plenty of prep areas and work
surfaces, and to maintain the ample eat-in area.

MAKE IT WORK
A few adjustments to the kitchen’s layout truly maximized
its function. The angled corner, which once housed the
oven, was replaced with a new entrance to the formal dining
room, allowing the wall of drawers and cabinets to be further
extended. The peninsula was replaced with a gracious
working island, encased in sleek statuario marble.

LET LIGHT IN
Removing the upper cabinets from the
sink wall helped increase the sense of
openness and allowed Cameron to
enlarge the existing window, letting
natural light pour in. A white linen roller
blind allows for privacy. The double-
drawer dishwasher is perfect for
smaller loads and is nicely concealed
behind faux drawer fronts.

OPEN UP THE SPACE
With the wall between the eat-in area
and the family room removed,
Cameron was able to increase the
amount of seating. The industrial
distressed stainless-steel table is offset
with six weathered wood chairs to
create a modern bistro vibe. The
pendant drum shade echoes the table
shape and completes the look.

INJECT A MOTIF
Envelop guests in the comforts of
a quintessential ski lodge, replete
with patriotic nods to Canadiana
and pops of bright colour: the
cosy carpet has a maple-leaf
design; and ottomans, covered in
the classic HBC stripes, are used
as seating, storage and a perch
for drinks. Kate discovered the
pillows made out of old swatches
of linen showing hunting and
skiing scenes at the nearby
Bayfield Antique Fair. Maple Leafs
carpet by Eric Mathew, Source UK;
HBC ottomans, The Bay; sofa,
Peaks & Rafters; chair fabric,
Designer Fabrics; cedar garland,
Sheridan Nurseries.
BRIGHTEN DARK WOODS
Log cabins tend to be dark.
However, this deer sconce (it
matches the chandelier over the
dining room table) summons
sparkle. “I love playing with
lighting,” says Kate. “Everything’s
on a dimmer in the house.” Bits
of glitter mixed into simple
holiday greenery will look great
well into the new year. Sconce,
Peaks & Rafters; cedar garland,
Sheridan Nurseries.
THE BACKSTORY When Kate Thornley-Hall chanced
upon a log cabin that looked as though it were plucked
from the pages of a fairy tale, she was immediately
smitten. As cute as a gingerbread house, the century-old
ski cabin in Collingwood, Ont., had an irresistible
charm — even though it wasn’t exactly move-in-ready.
The 900-square-foot, three-bedroom dwelling, which
Kate and her husband, Ted Larkin, purchased in 2008,
had low ceilings, baseboard heating and a tired kitchen.
“It was tiny!” says Kate, who runs Source UK, an
upmarket contemporary-carpet retailer in Toronto.
Contractor Blake Farrow and architect Robert McCrea
oversaw the three-month renovation, which involved
adding cedar dormers to the roof, a second entrance and
mudroom at the back, two new bathrooms and a
basement. A top-floor bathroom was reconfigured into
a fourth bedroom and the seven-foot ceilings were
bumped up to nine feet and the square footage to 1,500.
Kate looks forward to entertaining here during the
winter months. Her own ski-loving brood — Olivia, 19,
Lucy, 16, and Joe, 13 — invite their friends over, too. And
after a day on the slopes, everyone retreats to the cosy
cabin, where there’s a faint smell of birch smoke in the
air, the crackle of an open fire and the scent of buttery
things cooking in the oven. It’s a low-tech refuge where
the family comes to unplug and reconnect with friends.
ADD COTTAGE CHARM
Upon arriving at the 100-year-old cabin,
guests are met with quaint rural
prettiness: shutters painted robin’s egg
blue and classic wreaths. The charm of
the cabin was increased by adding new
cedar dormers. Door, Lucan Architectural;
wreath, Sheridan Nurseries.
Homeowner Kate Thornley-Hall and Harry, her
Tibetan terrier, are always happy to receive guests.

CREATE UNEXPECTED MOMENTS
The dining room’s antique Nova Scotia
pine table with Windsor chairs — two
are larger for interest — has been the
site of many boisterous gatherings. A
silver disc on the wall adds glamour to
the mainly wood room. “I bought it
because it looks like a snowflake,” says
Kate. It’s a perforated light that emits
a beguiling glow, as does the 1920s
French chandelier. Table, chairs, Land

RESPECT THE ERA
“The tradespeople were killing
themselves laughing when
I showed them this Ralph Lauren
wallpaper,” says Kate. “‘That’s
something my aunt had in her
basement in the ’60s!’” Yet, she
was absolutely certain it fit the
provenance and look she was
after in her daughters’
bedroom: quaintly vintage
feminine. Beds, Bunk House Kids;
wallpaper, Peaks & Rafters;
Laura Ashley bedding, The Bay;
Paisley carpet by Eric Mathew,
Source UK; curtains, Designer
Fabrics; silver vase, Elte; cedar
boughs, Sheridan Nurseries.
MIX, DON’T NIX
New French wallpaper is
pleasantly juxtaposed with
the original log wall of the
principal bedroom, creating
a panelled effect. Kate found
the chest of drawers at an
antique shop; the lamp “was
once a dirty old dust-covered
thing.” Chest of drawers,
Land & Ross Antiques; tray,
pitcher, plant pot, books
(bottom two), Angus &
Company; throws, Elte.
LAYER PATTERNS
A variety of patterns in the
bedroom makes a bold
statement: the bird-motif
wallpaper, varied styles and
shades of blue in the pillows
mix well with Source UK’s
Pom Pom rug, based on
Japanese shibori, a tie-dye
technique. The teeny bedside
table is both charming
and useful in this tight space.

BATHROOMS
The painted cabinets in the
bathroom reference the
chalet’s robin’s egg blue
shutters, while a bit of greenery
amps up the festive feeling
around the holidays. A

substantial than an average

space. Heated floor tiles keep
feet toasty. Cabinets, Blake

A self-proclaimed sucker for historical homes, interior decorator Pauline Esdale adored the
architectural character and “rocking chair” appeal of her 1916 Edwardian Revival charmer.
But there was, shall we say, one small drawback. With her husband, Mark, co-owner of a
software company, she’s known for throwing great get-togethers — everything from business
gatherings to Christmas cocktail parties with family and friends. The house’s diminutive
rooms and choppy layout proved to be problematic for this consummate entertainer. “When
you have a party, as you know, everyone ends up in the kitchen,” she says. “It doesn’t matter
how many sweets and goodies are in the other parts of the house, or how small the kitchen is,
everyone tries to squish in there. And, I tell you, our kitchen was small back in the day!”
When it came time for the couple to seriously think about finding more space, crowded
kitchen parties weren’t their only consideration. With one bathroom and
The 9½ ' Christmas tree, decorated simply
with chartreuse and gold ornaments, a
grapevine-twig garland and about 2,000
white twinkle lights, serves as a festive
focal point in the great room. Gifts

holiday theme. Sofa, Esdale Designs;

PLAN A COLOUR SCHEME AND
STICK TO IT: “If you stray from it,
the decorations end up looking too

USE NATURAL MATERIALS: “Elements
like fruits, pine cones and fresh
greenery are a must in my decorating.
And they’re always available.”
DON’T FORGET TO DECORATE THE
POWDER ROOM: “Everyone visits it at
least once.”
INCORPORATE CANDLES: “Light
candles or use faux ones — I have 18
battery-operated pillar candles on my
mantel, so no fire hazards there.
Everyone looks fantastic in candlelight
and it creates a beautiful ambience.”

There must have been something in the water. Over the past few years, it
seemed like buying a new house was contagious at the HGTV offices. Every day,
someone new came in, MLS sheet in hand, announcing their latest purchase
and plans to beautify it. For programming executive Michelle Kosoy, those
morning watercooler chats were bittersweet because she had been looking for
years, longer than all of us combined, for her next home. Then, almost a year
ago, she tiptoed up to my office door with a grin worthy of a Cheshire cat and
asked if I wanted to go with her to see a traditional centre-hall-planned house
in north Toronto. “Not just any house,” she explained. “This one is good.” And

just like that, I knew she meant business. Truth is, Michelle and I have worked
together for more than seven years at the network and we’ve talked houses,
houses and more houses. For months, we raced out of the building together at
lunchtime to see four-bedroom fixer-uppers, tired Tudors with tons of
potential and even a few not-in-a-million-years dumps. 
I knew her wish list by heart: an entertaining-friendly house, four bedrooms,
kitchen/family room and a dining room big enough for Friday-night dinners
with her extended family of 13. I even persuaded her to take on a few of my
house mantras, like making sure that the house in question has enough room
between the existing four walls to reconfigure the space (additions are a
headache) and to never be afraid of an outdated, unfluffed, granny-style
house. The only glitch in her plan was that her husband, Andrew Burnstein,
was at a conference in France, and she needed a second opinion. So, with my
scrutinizing eyes, I stepped into the role of husband.

Winning Style
Everyone has a different idea of a dream home. For
every fantasy of a palatial estate, there’s the desire for
someplace sleek and modern. But it’s safe to say that no
one would be disappointed to win the 2010 Princess
Margaret Hospital showhome, a testament to casual
elegance and classic style.
After last year’s exercise in rustic minimalism, Lynda
Reeves opted for an altogether different direction. Her
concept is familiar to seaside destinations such as the
Hamptons, Cape Cod and Chester, N.S., where cedar-
shingle exteriors, inviting verandas and gabled roofs not
only define the picturesque homes there but shape
universal notions of a beautiful life. Wisely, given this
home’s location on a leafy corner of Bentley Road in
Oakville, Ont. — and not an oceanfront perch — the
translation isn’t literal. Working closely with renowned

architect Gordon Ridgely, builder PCM and landscape
designer Ronald Holbrook, all Toronto-based, Lynda and
the H&H team created a property that blends into the
neighbourhood while accomplishing what the best
showhomes do, well, best: present a model for fresh
ideas and current styles. “We needed to update the
classic look so it wouldn’t be precious,” says Lynda of

Ridgely, best known for his fine Georgian residences,
focused on drawing from the Hamptons vernacular

airy great room framed by french doors that take full
advantage of the corner lot’s beautifully landscaped
gardens, courtesy of Coivic Contracting. Tweaking the
layout just so emphasizes the importance of openness and
light; the cathedral ceiling, complemented by a juliet
balcony, adds to the impact.
White walls with crown mouldings and ebony-stained
European oak floors anchor the principal rooms, but
colour — used as an accent in patterns and as solids — is
what truly brings the space to life. Less predictable than
au courant orange or fail-safe blue, quince green suggests
a fresh and versatile choice, especially when paired with
dark grey. It appears again in the principal bedroom,
adding zest to a neutral scheme of natural linen and
chunky jute. Shocks of geranium red in the sunroom
signal a modern twist on Victorian and plantation
themes. The study, meanwhile, is designed to be cosy,
with club chairs scaled down for maximum seating. High-

f “haute couture” is a
term reserved for fashion runways where designers showcase
their most spectacular work, then surely this grand dwelling —
a 5,000-square-foot Montreal apartment with direct views
of Mount Royal — is the epitome of home couture. From the
elegantly swagged drapes and crystal chandeliers to the built-
ins and bespoke millwork, each and every detail was custom-
created for the owners, a couple with three grown children.
To begin to understand the scale of this home’s majesty,
start with the numbers. There are 15 rooms, including three
bedrooms and four baths. While it took three years to design
and decorate the apartment, which the owners bought from
plans while it was still a concrete shell, it took a painstaking
nine months to assemble and install the entryway’s inlaid
marble floor alone. As for the chandeliers? There are 11,
plus another 12 matching wall sconces, all fabricated in Italy.
Three gas fireplaces bring warmth to the living room,
principal bedroom, den and office. And in the kitchen, the
island gives new meaning to the word “oversized,” measuring
in at 10 feet long. It all adds up to a space that feels more like
a European château than a Canadian apartment.
Marrying high fashion with drama worthy of a standing
ovation, the behind-the-scenes visionaries are Jean Turcotte
and Louis Pepin of the appropriately named firm Atelier de
l’Opera. It all started when the Westmount-based designers
met the homeowners at a dinner party thrown by clients and
mutual friends. Soon after, the couple hired Atelier de l’Opera
to add a glass sunroom to their country home; the
collaboration was so successful they decided

to highlight its silhouette.

THREE DINING ROOMS STEEPED IN STYLE PROVE THE SETTING

Anne Ullman’s house is a hub
of entertaining, so designer
Connie Braemer reconceived
the library next to the dining
room as a spillover space
that’s perfect for buffet
dinners, a bar area or more
intimate affairs. The dark walls
sit in bold contrast to the main
dining room’s crisp approach,
which is punctuated with fiery
pops of red.

Walls “We went for dark indigo walls in
the library, which looks rich but more
contemporary than panelling,” says
designer Connie Braemer. The main dining
room is painted white to create a gallery feel
and show off homeowner Anne Ullman’s
modern artwork.
Table and chairs The custom-designed
dining table is stained charcoal grey and
features a recessed edge, “so it doesn’t look
boxy,” says Braemer. She covered the chairs
in white silk to add a bit of glitz.
Flooring The original herringbone floor,
once a staid brown, is also stained charcoal
grey. “We wanted the crispness of black
and white,” says Braemer.
Lighting Crystal chandeliers encased in
sleek drum shades cast a soft glow.
Windows The dining room’s windows were
replaced with large glass doors, “for an
indoor/outdoor feel,” says Braemer. Full-
length drapes in the same white silk as the
chairs hang just above the floor for softness
and glamour.
Side table and accessories The round
table in the library is stained to blend with
the floor. Chairs recovered in velvety mohair
add warmth and texture. A vase of towering
birch-tree branches is on permanent display.
Tableware and flowers “Anne likes clean
lines,” says Braemer. Black bowls and
square-cut and circular white plates with
geometric patterns create a sharp setting.
Flowers are always of one kind and kept
monochromatic, and are arranged in
graphic multiples. Introducing pops of
red looks bold and bright.

Polished Opulence
Joanne and Moray Tawse,
owners of Vineland, Ont.’s
Tawse Winery, wanted a dining
room that fit their home’s west
Toronto setting and felt
suitable for formal sit-down
dinners. Designer Julie
Charbonneau struck the
perfect balance by introducing
old world elements with a
modern twist: a crystal
chandelier in a sleek new
shape and intricate wood
panelling painted soft grey are
stately without being stuffy.

Walls “Substantial mouldings have more
presence than thinner styles,” says designer
Julie Charbonneau. She painted the panelling
grey and limited colour in the rest of the
room to achieve an urban but soothing air.
Table and chairs Charbonneau had the
custom-designed table finished with a glossy
French lacquer to look sleek and polished.
The chairs, covered in silk and velvet, are
a contemporary take on a Louis XVI style.
Flooring A traditional Persian rug with a
delicate pattern was rolled out over the
walnut floors to add a dash of muted colour.
Lighting A showstopping chandelier above
the table gives the room’s soaring ceiling a
more intimate scale. “I like that it looks like
ice,” says Charbonneau. She added shaded
wall sconces and tapered candles to ensure
low-level lighting as well.
Windows “With the panelling and the
chandelier, the windows needed to be
simple, so we kept them bare,” says
Charbonneau. The result is perfectly framed
garden views at the foot of the table.
Side table and accessories The custom-
made sideboard was given a two-tone finish
a few shades whiter than the walls. Black
and white landscape photographs in simple
black frames add subtle decoration.
Tableware and flowers “Flowers are
always white, soft green or pink — no strong
colours!” says Charbonneau. The silver-
banded plates are a soft pewter, “like the
walls,” she says.

Walls “The challenge was to make the 8½'
ceiling seem high,” says designer Richard
Ouellette. To create this illusion, the same
pale grey wash was used on the walls and
ceiling, giving the area a serene feel.
Flooring Oak floors in a grey satin finish
have a touch of shine. “Light reflects off
them in a very subtle way,” says Ouellette.
“The colour is also similar to the walls and
ceiling, creating a light yet cosy space.”
Table and chairs The table’s simple
silhouette belies its glamour: white back-
painted glass sits atop slim lacquered legs
for all-around gloss. Mod crepe de chine–
upholstered chairs in soft seafoam green
swivel on pedestal bases. “That’s the best
thing about them,” says Ouellette. “It’s easy
to swing them around and get out if you
forget the salt and pepper in the kitchen.”
Lighting Directed recessed lights illuminate
artwork while a Murano glass chandelier
adds opulence. “It creates a nice tension in
the modern mix,” says Ouellette.
Windows Full-length sheers finished with
a French pleat soften the room without
interrupting the view. Japanese shades cover
the windows near the living room to keep
the look clean and tailored.
Side table and accessories An open
credenza with a classic Greek key base
provides a place to put serving dishes.
“Something closed would have made the
dining room feel crowded,” says Ouellette.
Tableware and flowers “Every punch of
colour becomes a statement,” says Ouellette.
Flower arrangements are small, so as not to
overpower. Plates also inject pattern.

suspended train. It is the first silent and friction-free dual ball bearing shower door.

Pickled Beet Salad
Roasted and pickled,
beets are the perfect
complement to the
crunch of tart green
apple in this delicious
crimson-coloured dish.

Swedish Meatballs
with Lingonberry
Sauce
Tender meatballs benefit
from warming spices
like nutmeg and allspice
and a creamy sauce.
Don’t forget to serve
them with lingonberry
sauce. (Ours is from Ikea,
but it’s available at
most supermarkets.)
Black bowl, white dish
(with sauce), Twice Found.
Crisp Cucumber
and Radish Salad
Sweet, sour and
crunchy, too, our dill-
flecked salad with
cucumber and wafer-
thin slices of radish is
unexpectedly addictive.
Wintry weather calls for warming comfort
foods, and we’re looking to Nordic countries for
their unique take on cold-climate cuisine —
foods used for fuelling snowy pursuits or nights
snuggled up in front of a fire. On my travels to
Scandinavia, I fell in love with oft-used local
ingredients like dill, beets and fresh seafood,
which are married to cooking techniques from
smoking to canning to sous-vide cooking
(vacuum-sealing ingredients in plastic bags
then cooking them in a water bath at a low
temperature over a long period of time).
Our holiday entertaining buffet tweaks
Scandinavian favourites to freshen them up.
We used wild mushrooms with loads of fresh
herbs, and our ready-in-minutes homemade
whole-grain flatbread is spiked with flaxseeds.
Beets are roasted, quickly pickled, then tossed
with crunchy green apples. Meatballs get a little
leaner; instead of pork, we used a mixture of
beef and veal with authentic spicing, though
we don’t skimp on the easy creamy sauce.
Everyone will feel welcomed by this table of
uncomplicated homemade cooking, especially
once you’ve placed a mug of glögg (warm mulled
wine) in their hands. Skål!

DELICIOUS THINGS
Must-haves for the home chef. By AMY ROSEN
SLICE RIGHT
The sculptural Nuance cheese slicer uses
a cutting wire to help you glide through wedges
with one hand — the slicer’s top ruler acts as a
guide, leaving your other hand free to hold a glass
of good cheer. We’ve put our slicer to work on
Avonlea clothbound cheddar, a jewel among
Canada’s cheddars, made from unpasteurized
milk from Cows Dairy in P.E.I.; the creamy interior
has a lovely crumbly texture when sliced. Cheese
slicer, $79. At shopAGO. Avonlea cheese, approx.
$8/100 g. At About Cheese.
NEW-SCHOOL MARTINI
Ever heard of a pickle back? We hadn’t either, until we tried it at
Kensington Market’s Burger Bar in Toronto and learned it couldn’t
be simpler to make: a one-ounce shot of whiskey followed by a one-
ounce chaser, or “back,” of pickle brine. Make your own using your
best Irish whiskey (we used Tullamore Dew) and quality pickle brine,
like that found in jars of Strub’s Full Sour Kosher Dills. It’s also an
off-the-menu order at places like the après-ski Mallard Lounge at
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, $45.
At LCBO. Strub’s pickles, at supermarkets across Canada.
ARTFUL APPS
A fresh take on an old standby, the PC Phyllo Pastry Hors d’Oeuvre Collection sees
caterer-quality triangles, cigars and bundles pleasing vegetarians and carnivores alike.
The crispy layers of phyllo practically shatter on impact, revealing warm fillings of Brie
and mushroom, roasted red pepper and Parmesan, or feta, artichoke and kalamata olive.
$10/18 pieces. At Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore across Canada.
MOVIE SNACK
Revisit favourite holiday classics while gathered around
a bowl of theatre-style popcorn. The 20-cup capacity
Hamilton Beach Hot Oil Popcorn Popper uses a
motorized bar to stir kernels as they heat, while butter
melts down through holes in the warming tray
above, like poppers of the past. End result? A perfect
buttery snack at home in less than four minutes.
$49. At retailers across Canada.
POT OF CHOCOLATE
Warm up with a mug of frothy hot chocolate made in the
new Bodum Chocolatière jug. The dishwasher- and
microwave-safe glass jug has a manual propeller, whereby
hot milk and melted chocolate become one through gentle
plunging and agitation. We used our favourite Belgian
chocolate shavings for a rich and creamy drink.
$40. At Chapters and Indigo Books + Music.

TOP-SHELF PICKS
From current trends to updated classics,
five of the season’s best new cookbooks.
The Essential New York
Times Cookbook
by Amanda Hesser
Food columnist Amanda Hesser
spent six delicious years cooking
her way through the New York
Times’ recipe archive (150 years’
worth!). The product of all that
research is this indispensable
tome. The opening blurbs, date
stamps and timeless recipes such
as Crab and Coconut Curry (1881)
are like a culinary romp through
history. The 1904 recipe for
Saratoga Potatoes even heralded
the invention of the potato chip.
Thank you, New York Times! Norton,
2010, HC 1,056 pages, $45.
The I Hate to Cook Book
50th Anniversary Edition
by Peg Bracken
For many, putting meals on the
table in a timely fashion remains
maddeningly elusive. Peg
Bracken’s 1960 classic helps on
that front, with a sense of humour
and timing. This revised and
updated version includes retro
recipes such as Idiot Onions and
Mrs. Vanderbilt’s Cook’s Wild Rice,
both of which make great use of
on-hand items, including leftovers.
Grand Central Publishing, 2010,
HC 208 pages, $28.
Cured by Lindy Wildsmith
A growing number of us are
becoming more interested in
where our food comes from, while
also taking an active role in
preparing and preserving garden-
fresh veggies. So Lindy Wildsmith’s
beautifully designed book is both
timely and useful, with instructions
on how to hot-smoke a side of
salmon, then use it in a fresh
zucchini salad. From pickling green
tomatoes to making your own spicy
chorizo, ancient techniques get a
modern makeover in this user-
friendly book. Krause Publications,
2010, SC 288 pages, $36.
Noma: Time and Place
in Nordic Cuisine
by René Redzepi
Lavishly photographed and full
of culinary philosophy, this hefty
book is for both looking and
cooking. Chef René Redzepi’s
Copenhagen-based Noma
restaurant has intricate tasting
menus described as concepts —
“Oyster and the Sea” — rather than
dishes. Recipes include King Crab
and Leek in Ashes. Think of it as a
Nordic take on The French Laundry
Cookbook. Phaidon, 2010, HC
320 pages, $55.
Barefoot Contessa
How Easy Is That?
by Ina Garten
Our favourite “contessa” doesn’t
disappoint with this full-colour
cookbook brimming with her
trademark accessible gourmet
dishes. There’s Creamy Parmesan
Polenta, Chipotle & Rosemary
Roasted Nuts and the gooiest-
looking Mocha Chocolate Icebox
Cake you’ve ever seen. Also filled
with entertaining tips such as
investing in white bakeware, this
is a book that will be dog-eared in
no time. Clarkson Potter, 2010, HC
256 pages, $40.

Pickled Beets
8 to 10 small to medium beets
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup white vinegar
2 cups water
3 tsp kosher salt
1 cup sugar
 
1. To roast beets, preheat oven to 425ºF.
Wash and dry beets, then wrap tightly in foil
and place on a baking sheet. Roast for
45 minutes, or until cooked through but not
mushy (beets can be roasted ahead of time).
2. To a nonaluminum saucepan, add the red
and white vinegars, water, salt and sugar. Stir
and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Set aside.
3. Peel beets (a messy job — I like to do it over
the sink), then slice into 1" cubes. Place the
pickling marinade and beets in a glass dish,
cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
 
Salad
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
½ cup sour cream
4 tbsp mayonnaise
¼ cup marinade from pickled beets
Pickled beets (about 4 cups)
½ red onion, finely chopped
4 Granny Smith apples, cored and diced
Salt and white pepper to taste
 
Mix together mustard, sour cream,
mayonnaise and beet marinade. Gently toss
with pickled beets, onion and apple, then
season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until
using but take out 30 minutes before serving
to take the chill off.
Homemade Flatbread
MAKES 2 DOZEN
 
2¾ cups whole-wheat flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp flaxseeds
½ tsp salt
6 tbsp butter, cold
¾ cup cold water, plus extra if needed
1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp water
(for an egg wash)
Healthy pinches of coarse salt and poppy
or sesame seeds
 
1. Combine flour, sugar, flaxseeds and salt
in a large bowl. Using your fingers, work the
butter into the flour mixture until it
resembles coarse crumbs. (You can also
make this with a stand mixer, using the
paddle attachment.) Slowly add the water
and form a ball. Add more water, 1 tbsp at
a time, if needed. Divide dough into 2 large
balls, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at
least 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 350ºF and lightly spray
2 cookie sheets with oil. On a lightly floured
surface, roll 1 dough ball into a long, thin
rectangle measuring approximately
10" x 12". Dock with fork tines and brush
with prepared egg wash. Sprinkle with
coarse salt and seeds, then cut into 12 equal
rectangles. Repeat with second ball of
dough. Place on cookie sheets and bake for
about 15 minutes, rotating the pans halfway
through, or until golden brown.

Crisp Cucumber and Radish Salad
SERVES 8
 
3 large English cucumbers
1½ tsp salt
⅓ cup white vinegar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
¼ cup plus 1 tbsp sugar
6 radishes, trimmed, washed and very
thinly sliced
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1. Peel the cucumbers, slice in half
lengthwise and cut off rough ends. Using a
teaspoon, scoop out any seeds from each
half, forming a shallow groove down the
length of the six halves. Then, slice crosswise
as thinly as possible.
2. Place prepared cucumbers in a colander
and sprinkle with salt. Toss to combine and
allow to stand for at least 1 hour, or up to
2 hours. Do not rinse the salt off. Then, use
your hands to gently squeeze handfuls of
cucumbers to release any excess liquid.
(You can also use a kitchen towel to squeeze
them dry.)
3. In a nonaluminum mixing bowl, combine
white vinegar, cider vinegar and sugar, then
stir until sugar dissolves. Add cucumbers,
radishes and chopped dill. Stir to combine
and serve at room temperature.
Creamy Shrimp Salad
SERVES 8
 
1 cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tsp dry mustard powder
2 tbsp ketchup
Juice of half a lemon, plus the other half
sliced into wedges for garnish
½ tbsp sweet paprika
800 g (about 5 cups) of cooked, peeled
medium-sized shrimp
½ tsp salt
½ tsp white pepper
 
To make dressing, mix together all ingredients
from sour cream to sweet paprika. In a large
bowl, toss shrimp with dressing and season
with salt and pepper as needed. Refrigerate

well browned on all sizes, about 8 to
10 minutes per batch. Set aside in a dish
as they’re cooked.
5. Once all meatballs are cooked, get out a
whisk and, using the same skillet (there’s
flavour in those crusty bits!), heat up 3 tbsp of
oil, then add flour, whisk together and cook
for about 2 minutes, or until nutty-smelling
and light brown. Gradually stream in beef
broth as you whisk away and sauce begins to
thicken. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes more, then
add sour cream and give another good stir.
Taste for seasoning. Place meatballs in
serving dish and pour gravy overtop. Add
chopped parsley for garnish, if you like.
Serve with lingonberry sauce.
Sautéed Wild Mushrooms
SERVES 8
1,000 g (about 2 lb., or 10 cups, sliced) assorted
wild and cultivated mushrooms, such as
cremini, button, chanterelle, oyster
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup dry white wine
1 cup whipping (35%) cream
½ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
 
1. To clean mushrooms, wipe with moist
paper towel. Cut off rough ends then slice
small mushrooms in half and larger ones
into thick slices. You’re looking for
uniformity in size.
2. Melt butter in a large saucepan; let it
bubble, then add the mushrooms. Season
generously with salt and pepper, then
Swedish Meatballs with

3 large eggs
½ cup breadcrumbs
½ cup water
1 tsp white pepper
½ tsp ground allspice
½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cups low-sodium beef broth
½ cup sour cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Lingonberry sauce (available at Ikea and

1. Heat about 1 tsp of oil in a large non-stick
skillet, add the onion with a pinch of the salt
and cook until onions are soft. Remove
onions from pan and let cool.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine
ground beef and veal, eggs, breadcrumbs,
water, remaining salt, pepper, allspice,
nutmeg and cooled onions. Beat on medium
for 1 minute, or until all ingredients are well
incorporated. This can also be done using a
spoon or your hands.
3. Using wet hands, roll meatball mixture into
balls a little smaller in size than a golf ball.
There should be about 50 in the end.
4. In the same skillet used for the onions,
heat oil a drizzle at a time over medium
heat to sauté meatballs in batches until

sauté mushrooms until they take on some
colour, about 7 to 10 minutes, stirring often.
3. Pour in the wine, followed by the cream,
stir and bring to a boil, then reduce heat
and simmer on low for about 30 minutes,
or until the cream has reduced considerably
and is rich and saucy-looking. Taste for
seasoning and adjust, if need be, then stir
in the chopped herbs and serve at once.
Glögg
SERVES 8
This hot Scandinavian drink is made of
red or white wine and fruit juice, and
further warmed with spices, fruit and nuts.
1 750-mL bottle fruity red wine
1 750-mL bottle good blackcurrant juice
or grape juice (or both mixed)
½ cup sugar, or to taste (depending on
sweetness of wine and juice)
2 cinnamon sticks
5 cloves
½ tsp ground allspice
2 large strips of orange peel (pith removed)
Dark raisins and blanched almonds for
garnish (optional but nice)
 
Pour the wine and juice(s) in a saucepan and

So you’re thinking, “What does
a barcode have to do with coee?”
A lot, actually. That’s because our
game changing single cup brewer
uses barcode technology to brew 29 beverages
the way they’re meant to be – perfect.
Here’s how. Each beverage has its
own single serve T DISC equipped
with a unique barcode. Inside that
little barcode are precise
brewing instructions
 from the brand. Our
brewer then adjusts the
temperature, water volume and
brew time. The result is the
perfect cup, every time.
“But don’t all brewers do that?”
Well, no. Only TASSIMO
auto matically brews
each brand to its exact
specifications. Other
brewers don’t. They
may treat an espresso the same as
a cup of tea. And we all know espresso
is no cup of tea.
Plus, TASSIMO makes specialty drinks,
like cappuccinos and lattes. And if you’re
looking for variety, you can just as
easily whip up a Twinings®
Chai Tea Latte or a cup
of Earl Grey.
There’s just nothing
like TASSIMO. So
choose the one with the
barcode – the dierence
is black and white.
the barcode brews it better
The barcode on every T DISC brews
each brand to its exact specifications.
The world’s
top brands
trust TASSIMO.
The secret to the perfect cup isn’t
just in the beans, it’s in the barcode.
The perfect cup,
every time.

they leave my house. It’s that last bit of
effort that makes the difference: having
someone’s favourite brand of vodka, a
playlist ready or a small parting gift.
People might not notice what it is, but
they leave feeling it was a magical night.
Any tips for the reluctant host?
SC: Two major things: One, do as much as
you can in advance and, two, keep things
as simple as possible. Set the table, restock
bathrooms and set up the bar well in
advance so you can spend less time doing
work and more time with your guests.
What have you learned through your work
that helps you to host parties at home?
SC: I often do self-serve grazing stations
at events. It’s a great way to manage a
large group of people, or a limited budget
since not as many servers are needed.
So, at home, I’ve been doing a lot of
charcuterie platters. I can just prepare
them and let guests help themselves. Or
I’ll come up with something at home and
think, “This would work really well for
parties.” I came up with these smoked
salmon and cream cheese lollipop canapés
rolled in chopped chives and served on
acrylic skewers, which are great when
everyone has a champagne glass in hand.
Do you come from a family of hosts?
SC: Yes. My parents owned a jazz bar-
bistro in Toronto called Café des Copains.
Many of their clients were starving artists
who made it their second home. Often,
they paid their tab with artwork.
You use a lot of artwork in your decor, too.
SC: Yes. Local food is getting a lot of hype
right now, but I believe it applies to your
wines, your artwork and your decor. My
wife and I have a lot of pieces from local
artists — Manny Neubacher, John
Smialek, Glen Baxter.
How do you celebrate the holidays?
SC: My father is Jewish and my mother is
Christian, so I grew up celebrating both
holidays. Now, we only celebrate
Christmas. My mom does a lobster dinner
on Christmas Eve for the adults. We have
dinner late, then open gifts until 1 or 1:30.
In the morning, the kids get up early and
open presents, then my wife and I host a
20-person dinner. It’s pure insanity! The
26th is the one day we relax.
two small children — Lauren, 9, and
Nicole, 7 — plus two cats and a dog, the
couple wanted more room for their family
to grow. “It was either put on an addition
or move,” says Pauline. In love with their
quaint, close-knit community of
Unionville, Ont., they decided to stay put
and, in 2007, embarked on a 1½-year
renovation that doubled the size of the
home and included adding a new
mudroom and a great room that houses
a kitchen, family room and dining area.
The transformed main floor, perfect
for accommodating family life and
parties, reflects Pauline’s desire to keep
the integrity of the house intact. Hefty
trimwork, coffered ceilings, built-ins and
a substantial wood-burning fireplace
blend with the house’s early-20th-century
character — and seem tailor-made for
Pauline’s favourite time of year.
“I’m Crazy Christmas Lady, I am,”
laughs Pauline. In fact, last year, she
pulled out all the stops to decorate her
house for the Markham Stouffville
Hospital’s annual Homes for the Holidays
tour (funds support the hospital’s Breast
Health Centre and Varley Art Gallery)
and hosted a wrap-up party. For Pauline,
the holiday season entails going all out
and hosting a festive cocktail party for
family and friends. She spends a weekend
filling rooms with old-fashioned
ornaments, Christmas trees, wreaths and
an abundance of fresh fruit and greenery.
While a cocktail party normally lasts
for a couple of hours, Pauline’s gatherings
last well beyond that. “They leave when
they leave. There’s no rush,” she says.
Guests walk into a dimly lit setting filled
with twinkle lights, candles and jazzy
Christmas music playing in every room
via the couple’s multiroom sound system.
In this spacious, inviting setting,
cramming into the kitchen is a thing of
Christmases past.

“Grey is an
important neutral
in fashion right
now, and there’s a
strong correlation
in design”
sensibility while adding a hit of glamour.
The most dramatic statement,
however, is reserved for the kitchen,
which is self-contained and represents a
departure from the open-concept live-in
kitchens that have been trendy, perhaps
beyond their prime. What it lacks is as
telling as its many attributes. Consider
the absence of an island, which Lynda
says is deliberate. “Islands have been in
for so long, it’s time for the pendulum to
swing the other way,” she says. With its
massive Viking range, built-in bar area
and rustic farmhouse table, the kitchen
is designed for the love of food and
drink. Its assertive grey and stainless
steel scheme — tempered by a white
beadboard ceiling — is chic by any
standard. “Grey is an important neutral
in fashion right now, and there’s a strong
correlation in design,” notes Lynda.
Up on the second floor, the message is
traditional and pretty. To accommodate
the cathedral ceiling on the main floor,
the ceilings upstairs had to be lower.
Tall mirrors and dressers are used to
emphasize the cosier height and
reinforce a cottage feel, while layers
of prints — on drapes, bedding and
upholstery — are mixed and matched to
lovely effect. Visual details are myriad:
louvered closet doors in the children’s
room add texture, crystal knobs in the
principal dressing area inject sparkle. A
mansard mirror above the principal bed
brings architectural flair. These are
what elevate the house beyond a beach
aesthetic. Look even closer and discreet
details that ease everyday life emerge,
such as lined drawers for jewelry and a
Blue Vision Mirror TV in the principal
bathroom that only appears when it’s on.
Music is piped throughout the house by
a sound system from Radiant Audio
Designs that features invisible speakers
hidden behind the walls for a truly
seamless look.
Practical needs have been addressed
in a similarly thoughtful fashion. A
spacious mudroom can be accessed from
the kitchen, basement and front and
back entrances and boasts closets,
cubbyholes and a shallow footbath (for
boots or pets). Two staircases lead to the
finished basement, allowing easy access
to the media room or privacy for a
houseguest staying in the lower guest
suite. The pale green laundry room is
a dream space for this household task,
complete with Miele front-loading
washer and dryer, generous counter
space, a desk area, a massive sink and
a Miele mangle rotary iron that presses
sheets like a pasta machine. Every item,
gadget, appliance and piece of furniture
— even the infrared Sauna Ray sauna,
which turns the basement bathroom
into a personal spa — was generously
donated or made available at cost.
Although there is only one winning
ticket, likely drawn by the time you read
this, the showhouse offers countless
design ideas that visitors have been able
to see, touch and eventually interpret
into their own spaces. Fans of the
inspirational homes in director Nancy
Meyers’ modern fairy tale films will
recognize a similar feeling in this house.
Take the Welsh dresser in the showhouse
dining room, which is Lynda’s direct nod
to a scene in the movie Something’s Gotta
Give, when stars Jack Nicholson and
Diane Keaton spar over dinner in her
Hamptons home. “Nancy’s houses strike
a chord,” says Lynda. “There’s a level of
sophistication that looks expensive but is
accessible. It’s a woman’s house that men
would still be comfortable in.” But the
showhouse is much more than a plush set
in a feel-good movie: it’s a feel-great
prize that will likely prove a life-
changing dream come true.

to have Turcotte and Pepin oversee the
construction of a new apartment. “We
like Atelier de l’Opera’s unconventional
approach,” she says. “They do everything
themselves from A to Z, and they are
always there for us. They have
imagination and their perception of
space is amazing.”
Wanting to create decor influenced by
a palace, the designers proposed a home
with three distinct areas: one for private
quarters; one for utilities and service;
and one for entertaining, which the
couple does often. “Oh, that’s not an
overstatement!” she confirms. “We
gather in groups of 10 to 15 in the dining
room. Just last month, I hosted guests
four times.”
It was the couple’s love of entertaining
that informed some of the home’s most
striking architecture. In the formal
dining room, a wall of glass-fronted
cabinets serves as a showcase for her set
of heirloom Limoges china. A gift from
her grandmother (who bought the set at
a Paris antique shop in the 1920s), the
pieces are handpainted with vibrant
poppies and are “too beautiful and
meaningful to use.”
“We had an elaborate mandate
concerning the china. Not only did we
want to show it in the built-in buffet but
the pattern also inspired our accent
colour,” says Turcotte, referring to the
cerulean walls inside the cabinet.
In the wine library, an area often used
for more casual family dinners, wall-to-
wall shelves display the husband’s
collection of close to 1,200 bottles. There,
the walls, ceiling and built-ins are made
from lacquered wood “to bring brilliance
to the room,” says Pepin. The recessed
circular shape in the ceiling also subtly
echoes the round table, providing
symmetry. And in the 550-square-foot
kitchen, the designers repeated the
lacquered wood finish on the cabinets
remarkably by finishing the inset panels
with gold leaf.
While the public spaces are striking
and spectacular, the designers imbued
the private quarters with a more
comfortable take on luxury. In the
principal suite, a subdued taupe scheme,
which the designers describe as
stardust, is enlivened by a yellow hue
that’s reminiscent of fields of goldenrod.
“We really started with our clients’
personality: warm and welcoming, but
also classic with a European influence
in the architecture and layout,” explains
Pepin. “We chose an embroidered silk
for the canopy bed, and matching
curtains with a pleated frill enforce the
haute couture details found throughout
the home.”
With this degree of highly personal
detail, it’s no surprise that the
homeowners were intimately involved
in every decision. And yet, they didn’t see
their soon-to-be home for two whole
months before taking possession. “Jean
and Louis told us they would take care of
everything; we had not seen even a
glimpse of how the place was looking,” she
says. “But when we walked into the foyer,
we had a feeling of walking into a house.
Our paintings and artwork were there to
greet us, and it took us only three seconds
to fall in love. Finally, my husband said,
‘We will adore living here.’ It was exactly
what we wanted.”
“It’s true that I bought a house when
Andrew was out of town,” she says while
shrugging her shoulders and smiling
with her signature grin. “But we had
been looking for so long, I was pretty
confident that he trusted me. But to be
fair, I emailed him the listing sheet so we
could talk through the purchase. There
was never any doubt, it was just perfect.”
Or, it had the potential to be perfect.
Although the house had all the right
bones, it was a long way from being the
entertaining-friendly space that the pair
had envisioned. The house had only
three bedrooms, it didn’t have a
mudroom or a main floor powder room,
the dining room was smallish and the
kitchen was tiny and outdated. One of
the perks of working for a channel that’s
dedicated to all things home is that we’re
able to watch design TV round the clock.
Think of it as speed decorating, where
every 30 minutes another beautiful
“after shot” reveals itself on our
television sets. It’s impossible not to
catch the design bug.
“Having watched a gazillion hours of
television, one of the recent shows that
I was working on, HGTV’s Top Ten,
featured a Vicente Wolfe dining area,”
recalls Michelle. “It was the perfect
blend of modern with a rustic twist.
Instantly, I knew that’s what I wanted.”
Enter Barbara Purdy and Olivia Botrie
of Barbara Purdy Design, who had
worked on a few of our hit shows and had
a design sensibility that Michelle
appreciated. “We loved that they knew
exactly what they wanted, and Michelle’s
tear sheets, design examples and
feedback from the girls at the office
set the tone for the project,” says Purdy.
Undaunted by the scope of the
3,000-square-foot project, the design
duo set out to reconfigure the existing
space. “We rearranged all of the rooms
based on how they entertain,” explains
Botrie. “So, the massive living room
became a spacious dining room. The
kitchen was turned into a side entrance/
mudroom with a powder room tucked
into the corner. And the breakfast area
in the main floor den was transformed
into a kitchen and family room.”
The upstairs also had a few flaws, but
nothing that couldn’t be tweaked. One
of Michelle and Andrew’s must-haves
was a bedroom for them and one for each
of their boys — Cole, Ben and Alex. The
problem was that the house only had
three rooms. “It was an easy fix,” says
Purdy. “We put up some drywall in the
dressing room off the master and made
a really cute bedroom.”
Throughout the house, it’s hard not to
notice hits of Michelle’s personality —
a girlie pink runner up the stairs, a
collection of etchings given to her by her
father and a playful patterned wallpaper
at the front door. This house doesn’t take
itself too seriously. It’s fun, warm,
modern, rustic and family-friendly.
“After all these years of watching
beautiful houses, I finally have one. It’s
my dream house,” she says. And there
goes that grin again.

I need help
arranging the
furniture in my
living room, which
has one wall with dark wood
built-ins and a fireplace. The
room is long, so I think it needs
two separate seating areas.
What about tables?
— A.M., via email
With all that lovely dark wood, I’d
like to see you create a handsome
library-style space just like in our
Inspiration shot. To start, consider painting
your walls a few shades deeper and warmer
than your current colour, like Exploring Khaki
(UL190-20) (shown) from Behr, to soften the
contrast with the millwork.
I don’t think the room is large enough for
two full seating plans, but I do think you can
fit a small reading area as well as an intimate
conversation/TV space. For the reading nook,
move your wing chairs to sit in front of the
window (see floor plan) and position them to
face each other. Instead of a table, place an
upholstered ottoman between them — it can
also act as extra seating.
For the conversation/TV area, keep your
sofa where it is, but pull it in from the reading
nook a bit to create some breathing room.
Then, further define the area with another
piece. The Austin lounge (shown), upholstered
in a brown velvet like Kravet Smart 27042-68
or a classic herringbone like Kravet Smart
30628-106 (both shown), will strengthen the
tailored look we’re going for.
The Library Look
Dark millwork sets the tone for a masculine makeover.

your decorating questions.

The Inspiration
You should have enough room for an
armchair opposite the lounge, but it can’t be
too big — thankfully, small doesn’t mean
uncomfortable! I like the Professor’s chair
(shown). It has a small footprint (2' sq.), but
the cushy seat makes it supercomfortable.
Now, for the finishing touches. With its
gold-leaf frame and curved stretcher, Annie
Selke Home’s Gardiner cocktail table (shown)
is a nice feminine note to offset the more
masculine elements. Layer in pattern with
throw pillows made up in Schumacher’s Elton
Bird (shown). It has an old world feel that will
enhance the library theme. And, finally, to
play up the cosy factor, bring in a large neutral
wool area rug.

Knit one, purl two. It’s a crafty mantra, especially when accompanied
by the calming clackety-clack of knitting needles. Stitch ’N Bitch: The
Knitter’s Handbook, written by Debbie Stoller back in 2003, spawned
a nation of hip young knitters able to whip up a chunky scarf in a
fashion flash. It’s also the title of a new HBO comedy, developed by
Oscar-nominated starlet, alternative “it” girl and proud knitter Ellen
Page. Knitting, it seems, is a warming trend that’s here to stay.
 Our palette, if you haven’t guessed, is inspired by a knit classic —
the modest red, white and grey work sock that tipped off a look-alike
cup cosy scored on Etsy. A stoneware platter from Vancouver’s
18 Karat feels touchably textured with a cable-knit surface, while
pleasingly off-kilter hand-knit pendant lights — named Granny — are
crafted with wool yarn from the Austrian mountains. And what looks
like a wool sample is actually a rug knit using oversized needles. Even
tech gets in on the act with an HD Flip video camera personalized
with a pattern scanned from a favourite sweater. With so many
choices, you can bet a skein of wool we’re wrapped up warm and
cosy this winter!
