Take video tours of our three favourite indoor/outdoor havens from past seasons of H&H Online TV! Stay tuned for all new segments next week, August 5th!
Think you need a large family home for three young children? Think again. Stylish Toronto realtor Emily Norris shows off her bright and relaxed lakeside bungalow. See how she maximized the views and cut costs by using reclaimed flooring and a DIY wall treatment, vanity, console table and more. Tour the cheerful bedrooms on the main level and open-concept kitchen, dining room and family room on the lower level, complete with large walk-out doors to the garden and lake.
Make the most of a narrow home — thanks to a soft, visually expanding palette, sleek design and smart storage — with inspiration from designer Lisa Rogers. Tour through the house she tailor-made for two empty-nesters: TV News commentator Patricia Lovett-Reid and her husband Jim Reid. See how she tied together the warm living area, serene bedrooms, marble-clad bathroom and envy-inducing dressing room with organic and beachy accents inspired by the lake view.
Landscape designer Terry Ryan of Cubic Yard Design shares a lush, urban backyard project. See how he maximized square footage to include zones for lounging, sunning and dining, incorporating plenty of greenery and a large existing crab tree.
