In This Episode

How do you create a luxe traditional look in a dated condo penthouse? Toronto interior designer Philip Mitchell accomplished just that. Tour his updated 1970s apartment, where he added a grand barrel ceiling in the hallway, classic panel moulding, a faux fireplace and marble finishes to replicate old New York City buildings. House & Home designers Trish Johnston and Amanda Smith take us behind the scenes of a seasonal photo shoot where they create festive DIY indoor arrangements using urns, greenery, vine wreaths, pillar candles, moss and burlap. Make your own to add an outdoor touch to an entryway, staircase landing or living room. Finally, Toronto architect Christopher Tweel explains how he renovated a 1955 mid-century modern home into a spacious family retreat. Learn how he updated many features without compromising the original style of the home. Take in his ideas for modern design, from the floating staircase and 27-foot-wide windows in the living room, to a contemporary art wall and black slate floors throughout.
