Take video tours of our three favourite bold spaces from past seasons of H&H Online TV! Stay tuned for all new segments next week, February 4th!
Popular designer and HGTV co-host Thomas Smythe revives a family kitchen and lounge with bold patterns, strong colours and traditional references. See how Smythe updated the historic kitchen with graphic tile, grey cabinets and trendy brass accents. Learn why he added a red tufted sofa, unique chairs and a customized antique cabinet to the cosy lounge area.
What do a tribal David Hicks wallpaper, a graphic blue and green rug and mandala-style fabric have in common? They all helped inspire Cinnie and J.D. Segsworth's bold and colourful 1920s semi. Designer Timothy Mather infused their living room, kitchen, family room and bedrooms with bright hues, pattern, contemporary art and updated antiques, while still grounding the rooms with crisp white trim, moulding and marble flooring.
Could you live in 360 square feet? Toronto artist, sculptor and designer Bruno Billio proves that a cramped downtown apartment can tastefully accommodate vintage lighting, a large dining table for entertaining, clothing storage and bold contemporary art. As a resident artist at The Gladstone Hotel, Billio is an expert at curating urban spaces with eclectic style.
