In this Episode
Toronto designer Barbara Purdy shows off her modern-rustic kitchen and sitting area. Learn how she relocated the kitchen to another side of the home to accommodate functional elements for a busy family, including a large island, stools, smart storage and a pivoting TV.
Suzanne Dimma reveals the completed bathroom renovation of H&H art director Mandy Milks. See how Mandy — with some help from Stacey Smithers — converted one large bathroom into two functional spaces: a main bathroom with an antique clawfoot tub and a smaller ensuite with a luxurious shower. Find out how she combined warm metal faucets, high-end tiles and vintage accessories, all while sticking to a strict budget.
H&H style editor Sarah Hartill demonstrates how she turned affordable 12" x 12" mirror tiles into a vintage-looking mirror for her bedroom.
