Tudor-Revival Renovation

Designer Sam Sacks outlines the steps she took to turn a major fixer-upper into a dream home for her family of five. See how Sam uncovered surprises (like a gracious wood staircase hidden behind a plaster wall) and made the original 1910 features look fresh, plus see how salvaged doors help personalize this formerly 'decrepit duplex' in Toronto.

Dreamy Blue-Grey Laundry Room

When designer Colette Varghese renovated her basement she built her laundry room from scratch, and it's been such a success her clients have asked her to reproduce it in their homes. Discover why the elegant blue-grey palette, marble floor and Whirlpool’s steam washer make this laundry room such a hit. 

Defining Modern Country

Suzanne Dimma details the "modern country" look with Maison & Demeure design editor Anne Côté, using Anne's Eastern Townships farmhouse in Quebec as an example. Learn which elements make up a country look and how Anne brings it up to date with white-painted wood, minimal pattern and a dramatic black room.
