Designer and project coordinator Tanya Bonus reveals an oceanside family retreat she designed with the Sarah Richardson Design team. Tour the bright entryway with a fireplace as the focal point, open-concept living areas with floor-to-ceiling windows, luxurious kitchen with sea-blue tiles, cosy principal bedroom and colourful kids' rooms.
Homeowners Tim Gilbert and Jocelyn Mackie show off their gorgeous kitchen with modern cabinetry and nature-inspired accents. See how they warmed up contemporary white door-fronts with dark upper cabinets in a grey-brown tone, and topped the island with smooth marble for a polished look. Plus, learn how they added extra storage by extending custom cupboards to the entryway.
Lynda Reeves chats with fashion designer Simon Chang about his new collection of versatile paint colours for Beauti-Tone. Learn which Canadian artists inspired the palettes and the new colours in the collection — from pops of Pacific coast blues to calming Maritime hues and earthy tones from the Eastern Townships.
