Empty Nester Reno

Designer Olivia Botrie of Barbara Purdy Design walks us through the renovation of her parents' home after they downsized. See how her design blends rustic warmth and a clean, contemporary feel. Modern fireplaces add cosiness, while a herringbone floor and stone wall in the mudroom is contrasted by a sleek white kitchen with concealed appliances.

Fresh Family Basement

Find out Sally Armstrong's ideas for creating a space that kids love to spend time in. See how the House & Home senior design editor gave her Toronto basement a new lease on life by raising the ceiling and adding a glass wall that opens onto an alfresco dining area. She took a playful approach to durable materials, painted the bathroom in chalkboard paint, and spiced up the white walls with bright ikat patterns and a mural.
