Discover the ultimate summer entertaining space as Studio b design consultant Tim Tanz and his partner Jeff Matyas show off their Cambridge, Ontario backyard. See how they drew design ideas from their travels as they tour their sunbathing deck, dining area, resort-inspired pool and multifunctional pool house. Lynda Reeves provides a glimpse into the 11-month process of designing, constructing, decorating and styling the new Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes showhome in Oakville. Inspired by homes in Argentina's wine country, Lynda shares some of the gorgeous elements the H&H team chose, from a stucco exterior to french doors, wide-lever shutters to warm wood details, and mustard accents with pops of rust, white and taupe. Plus, Cameron MacNeil offers design advice for a large principal bedroom, including simple tips for adding warmth with textured carpet, an upholstered headboard, bedding, paint, luxurious drapery and lighting.
