Classic Christmas Wrapping

A nostalgic holiday palette.

Photographer Monic Richard's tartan and twine-wrapped parcels have a traditional, old world look that perfectly suits her charming Quebec chalet. To create a similarly cohesive look, select a plaid wrapping paper and match your ribbons to colours you see in the pattern.

Charming White Kitchen

A traditional space with plenty of character.

Warm walnut panelling and vintage-look accessories lend personality to designer Silvana D'addazio's mostly white galley kitchen. A set of full-length drapes adds softness, and draws the eye to the room's stunning transom windows and lush garden views.

Traditional Principal Bedroom

A relaxing and serene corner.

To ensure a restful environment, designer Tommy Smythe selected a palette of tranquil blues in this handsome bedroom. He also opted to place the homeowner's TV set inside a beautiful antique armoire, so it's concealed when not in use.

Pretty In Pink

Two design editors, one great look.

Writer and editor Beth Hitchcock was stuck on how to decorate her Toronto living and dining rooms, so she called on H&H's Stacey Smithers (left) and Sarah Hartill to shake things up. "Stacey and Sarah always bring a coolness and edge to what they do," says Beth. In her living area, the duo brought in plush pink pillows that make a statement against a deep grey sofa, and graphic abstract artwork for another hit of lively colour.
