In This Episode

What do a graphic blue and green rug, a tribal David Hicks wallpaper and mandala-style fabric have in common? They're inspiring focal points in Cinnie and J.D. Segsworth's colourful 1920s semi. Designer Timothy Mather infused their living room, kitchen, family room and bedrooms with bright hues, pattern, contemporary art, and updated antiques, while still grounding the rooms with crisp white trim, moulding and marble flooring. Plus, H&H editors Joel Bray and Michael Penney pass on styling tips at the 2011 Interior Design Show. Take blooms from boring to bold by swapping glass vases for vintage cans with character, or dropping houseplants in rustic buckets, for instance. Also, learn how to add character to rooms with framed fabric panels, DIY cyanotype-style stencils and more.
