House Home Photo Magazine August 2011 Get Style

Browse through our style issue for designer secrets, condo updating tips, and tricks for adding bursts of colour to any space. Editor Suzanne Dimma relays the stylish design details she took in on a recent trip to Italy — banister hardware at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection museum in Venice, cup-shaped brass doorbells in Rome, blue and white zigzag tiles in Anacapri. Plus, learn how four stylemakers break the rules to make a big statement in their own homes. Jewelry designer Maryam Keyhani reveals her top five looks, ideas and obsessions, and how they played into her mostly-white Victorian rowhouse. The two Montreal designers behind the design-build firm Les Ensembliers put down roots in a remote country retreat along the St. Lawrence River, and explain how they transformed the 400-square-foot cabin into a stylish and cosy home. Finally, designer Patti Rosati proves that a dated 1980s condo can be brought up to date with a few upgrades: panel mouldings, an Italian-glass mosaic tile backsplash, repainted bedroom bookshelves, and luxe fabrics in bright and cheery colours. Get Amy Rosen's favourite burger recipes, with sides to boot, including a Brit lamb burger and sweet potato oven fries.
