In This Episode

H&H style experts Lynda Reeves and Suzanne Dimma discuss their favourite design and decorating trends for bathrooms. See why they both covet freestanding tubs, graphic flooring, vertical storage instead of lower cabinets, and never tire of wall colours like white, soft blue, or flattering pink. Tour style editor Michael Penney's charming, Maine-inspired guest bedroom and sea-glass hued office while picking up affordable-chic tips on embracing colour, updating thrift-store finds and drawing inspiration from floral fabrics. Plus, H&H style expert Peter Paquette demonstrates how to build an inexpensive, modern planter box — overflowing with greenery, it's a perfect feature or divider for any size patio, deck or balcony.
