In This Episode

Jazz up a dark Victorian home by painting rooms in fun, bright colours. Artist, writer and energetic entrepreneur Alexandra Bennett did just that with the Toronto home she shares with her husband and three children. Tour the pink dining room, lilac kitchen nook, deep purple living room, and principal bedroom with soft and subtle pattern. Gather small-space decorating tricks as six architects and designers reveal their approach to designing a 160-square-foot shipping container at 2012's Interior Design Show. Plus, H&H editors Hilary Smyth, Cameron MacNeil, Sarah Hartill and Stacey Smithers share their favourite bold colours, including fuchsia, yellow and cerulean blue.
