Learn how to balance timeless style and durable, kid-proof design. Designer Emma Kenley shows us how in her gorgeous kitchen makeover with mix-and-match floor tiles and shelving, vintage finds and a chic-yet-casual eat-in dining area. Suzanne Dimma and Mark Challen find out what's inspiring leading designers Kelly Deck, Edmonton's IZM, Brent Comber, Omer Arbel, Blazys Gerard and Martha Sturdy at the 2011 Interior Design Show West. Plus, celebrity chef and Food Network host Cat Cora drops by H&H's office to demonstrate a simple halibut recipe with capers, cherry tomatoes and basil.
