Small Main Floor Makeover

Homeowner Helen Dewar explains how she turned the narrow 15 by 30-foot main floor of her family's townhouse into a functional space for entertaining. See how she maximized natural light by removing upper cabinetry and added colour with elegant wallpaper, yellow-painted doors and striped fabric. Plus, learn how she squeezed in extra seating for guests with a narrow kitchen island and custom dining table.

Functional Boy's Room

Designer Cameron MacNeil and H&H style editor Stacey Smithers reveal easy ways to transform a guest room into a big boy's bedroom and a small nursery into a cosy den. Learn their tips for customizing Ikea closet units with paint and panel moulding, incorporating a dark accent wall and keeping floor space open for play.

Lynda Reeves and Toronto chef Donna Dooher prepare a holiday feast with a roast turkey, simple stove-top stuffing and savoury Irish soda bread. Print out recipes for the roast turkey, stuffing and Irish soda bread, plus two additional recipes from Donna Dooher for potato flan and apple pie.
