In This Episode

Brian Gluckstein's senior decorator, Michelle Hanna, leads us through her well-appointed home. Where others might have instinctively pared down in a 14-foot wide house, she layered it on with elaborate mantels, antiques, welcoming seating areas, handsome panel moulding and layers of luxurious fabrics. Learn her tips for renovating a layout, installing built-in storage, maximizing space and displaying treasures. Adding to her list of favourite things, Lynda Reeves shows off four more items that have caught her eye this year. Plus, H&H senior design editor Cameron MacNeil suggests affordable options to update an all-wood kitchen. Learn how a bit of paint, butcher block, lighting and fabric can take a dated kitchen from "then" to "now".
