Form & Function
In smaller spaces like this 160-square-foot attic, which functions as both a guest bedroom and office, it's important to choose pieces that are multifunctional. Here, two stylish Risom stools can be moved around the room for extra seating, and also provide a surface for guests to set their suitcases or stack clothing.

Picturesque Lounge Space
Built over 60 years ago, this family home was clearly ahead of its time, with large contemporary windows, generous room sizes and an open, uncomplicated layout. "The thing that really got me was the view,” shares homeowner Emily Norris. “South-facing panoramic lake vistas with layers of mature trees as far as the eye could see.”

Spacious Neutral Kitchen
In stark contrast to the bright and airy colours of the walls, cabinets and floors, designer and former H&H editor Cameron MacNeil chose a HanStone speckled-quartz countertop to add an earthy warmth to this kitchen. The stain-, bacteria- and heat-resistant surface shows how great style can also be functional.

Located next to his country home in Ontario's quaint Prince Edward Country, Jay Hodgins' guest bunkie sleeps up to three guests, and is appointed with a fresh mix of blue and white textiles. An antique footstool injects a pop of bright colour, while a vintage reindeer hide adds softness underfoot.
