An open-concept room for cooking, eating, entertaining and lounging.
Jilaire Wagner of Saskatoon was a runner-up in our 2009 Design Contest. She wanted a kitchen to host intimate dinners and large parties, a kids' craft area, a TV and a formal sofa for tea parties that was also comfortable enough to recline with a book after school. She wanted it all, and she achieved it. "We dealt with more than 20 vendors and tradespeople," she says. "I spent hours and hours sourcing products online and visiting showrooms, but it was all worth it in the end, because we ended up with a completely customized space."
