We've put together three video tours of our favourite light and bright spaces from past seasons of H&H Online TV. Stay tuned, all new segments return June 16th!
Peek inside the suburban Montreal home of designer Rollande Vachon of Moutarde Décor/Design. Suzanne Dimma reveals how Vachon updated her old home while preserving its original character. From a neutral palette and horizontal wall panelling to weathered wood finishes and subtle stripes, see how Vachon creates authentic French farmhouse ambiance with classic details.
Tour the modern family home designer Nancy Riesco shares with her husband and two kids. Learn why they downsized from a large Tudor in an established neighbourhood to a narrow 2,300-square-foot home with views of the ocean. See the open-concept main floor with flowing sightlines and salon-style art wall and the serene principal bedroom and colourful rooms for both her teenagers.
Designer Maia Roffey passes on her tips for adding character and storage to rental apartments. See how she elevated the look of her basic bedroom with traditional panel moulding, an exposed closet system, ikat pillows and a punchy painted headboard.
