Shades of purple add a feminine touch.
A lacquered lavender mid-century modern credenza paired with mauve seat cushions adds a feminine touch to this room. The accent wall, treated with a faux-wood wallcovering infuses pattern, while overhead a vintage 1970s Mazzega chandelier sets the focal point.
An inviting and relaxing space.
Make a bathroom feel like a personal spa with interesting details like a custom-made radiator cover, which can easily double as extra shelving. Adding a small side table with a fresh flower arrangement makes the space feel special.
Colourful Reading Corner
Graphic prints pop against white walls.
The intentional mix of bold art and upholstery makes a small corner feel bright and lively. A light wood chair upholstered in a colourful, patterned fabric is a sophisticated way to express personal style.
Contemporary White Kitchen
A charming breakfast perch.
A striking arch and sleek marble backsplash add a luxe feel to this white kitchen, designed by Katherine Newman. A set of exotic bamboo barstools adds warmth to the mostly white space.
Reusing Old Furniture
A dining table turned fun craft table.
H&H senior design editor Sally Armstrong repurposed her old dining set to furnish her daughters' playroom. Giving the table and chairs a white and hot pink colour-block makeover adds a fun and feminine feel to the room.
A playful and patterned setting.
Artist and textile designer Virginia Johnson arranges her table with playful and nature-inspired colours and patterns. Layering unusual fabrics puts a fun spin on the traditional tablecloth.
Serene Enclosed Veranda
A French country-inspired sunroom.
Rollande Vachon, owner of Moutarde Décor and Moutarde Design, is able to enjoy the outdoors year-round in an enclosed sunporch with floor-to-ceiling windows. To add a sense of permanence, she included a chandelier and some indoor furniture.
Functional & Fashionable Sitting Room
A small space with statement pieces.
A large statement piece like this armoire is a great way to incorporate storage, hide clutter and display collectibles in smaller areas. In limited space, maintaining a consistent colour scheme throughout makes busy patterns feel connected rather than visually distracting.
Bedroom With Layers Of Pattern
Muted tones offer a soothing environment.
A combination of patterns, layered pillows, artwork and a unique pendant give this room a sense of history. The space feels as though the owner collected items over time to create one, curated room.
Spacious Gourmet Kitchen
A bright space for family meals.
This family-friendly contemporary kitchen is the perfect combination of sleek appliances and warm walnut cabinetry. The horizontal grain of the wood adds a unique and unexpected element to the space.
