In This Episode

Listen in on the best decorating tips from industry insiders at Toronto's Interior Design Show. Designer and HGTV host Sarah Richardson and her brother, industrial designer Theo Richardson, tour their concept space's three colour-themed rooms — red, blue and yellow — combining Theo's contemporary lighting and furniture with Sarah's inviting style. Designer Tommy Smythe reveals his personal-style philosophy, small-space advice and love of a timeless red sofa to Suzanne Dimma — as well as what's coming up on the new season of Sarah's House. Plus, learn the secrets of cheap and chic decorating as Mark Challen interviews H&H editors Beth Hitchcock and Michael Penney. Decorative light fixtures, vintage accessories, wallpaper, paint and mix-and-match furniture are just a few of the tricks they used to personalize their rental homes.
