In this Episode
Marvel at the vibrant patterns, colours and dramatic accessories featured in Victoria Webster’s glamorous home, designed by Sloan Mauran. Bright green hues and Ikat patterns define the bedroom, while pearlescent mosaic tile, a freestanding tub and a feathered pendant light accent the bathroom. Assistant design editor Kathryn Bala demonstrates how to make a trendy, DIY pendant light. Plus, Lynda Reeves shares her favourite Gravlax recipe, paired with a zesty mustard-dill sauce.
