Bright white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a glossy blue-green tiled backsplash and a charming dining area transform a dated kitchen. Steal senior design editor Cameron MacNeil's tips as he outlines the rationale behind this year's Ikea Kitchen Contest makeover. Morgan Michener shows how to create chic terrariums in lidded glass jars with moss, gravel, charcoal, soil, and lush plants. Plus, Mark Challen sits down with H&H editors Meg Crossley and Cameron MacNeil at the 2011 Interior Design Show to chat about their own home renovations. Learn how Meg turned an unfinished basement into a bright, livable space for cool summer lounging, and how Cameron made over his narrow Toronto rowhouse. Learn where to cut corners, what to splurge on, how colour can define a space, and where it's safe to experiment with pattern.
