Compact spaces burst with major style in House & Home’s annual Small Spaces issue. Step inside four homes under 1,200–square–feet, from a designer’s artful loft-studio in Old Montreal to an updated ’70s Calgary condo that’s packed with smart storage solutions. In Muskoka, a lakehouse’s modernist design creates a haven of tranquility, while an airy, new-build boathouse takes its cues from architecture in the grand cottage tradition. Jeff Stober, the brains behind Toronto’s The Drake Hotel, unveils his very hip Prince Edward County weekend home. See a selection of daybeds designed for seating or siestas, and freshen up rooms in a weekend with easy but impactful paint projects. Finally, make the most of summer’s fresh produce with food editor Eshun Mott’s best dressing and salads (some are hearty enough to double as a main).
