Form & Function

A fresh and practical guestroom design.

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.

Fresh & Pretty Living Room

Floral motifs bring life to a neutral space.

In Australian designer Anna Spiro's Brisbane living room, a simple white settee is accented with a mix of romantic botanical-print pillows. An arrangement of books, antiques and other collectibles on the coffee table is just one of many interesting vignettes peppered throughout her home.

Picturesque Lounge Space

A stunning lower level walk-out.

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

A family kitchen flooded with natural light.

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.

Charming Guest Bunkie

A rustic and stylish space for friends and family.

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.
