In This Episode

How do you mix modern style with warm, kid-friendly spaces and materials? H&H editor Suzanne Dimma finds out as she tours the unique Toronto home of designer Ashley Botten and photographer Christopher Wahl. They converted an old 1930s store turned photography gallery into a urban home full of fun nooks for their two kids to play in and make artwork. See their kitchen with custom hardware and sleek wood accents, a living room personalized with vivid photography, plus simple yet gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms. Peter Paquette demonstrates how to build a clean-lined and contemporary plywood display shelf that shows off book covers, magazines, art and decorative objects. Plus, Cameron MacNeil offers dining room decorating tips to a reader from B.C., including how to update lighting, create a gallery art wall, accessorize and add warmth underfoot with on-trend hemp rugs.
