The Best of Canadian House and Home April 2009

pool hut of the urban revival house tour : canadian house and home april 2009

Many of you are fans of Canadian House & Home magazine. I will make it an habit to share my top 3 stories on each issue. At last, the stories are toned by warm sunshine. My favorite stories for April 2009 are:

+ The cover story is the house tour of Richard and Rana Florida who moved to Toronto in 2007 from Washington, D.C. I am fond of their idea of converting a working garage into a pool hut. The French doors on the side provides a direct access to the pool and a view to the ravine. Photography by Michael Graydon

simple abundance interior design tips :: white spring tablescape

+ Simple Abundance highlights 7 tricks to infuse a modern makeover to a 90-year old English-style cottage on a budget. The home of associate designer Catherine Radciffe at Riesco & Lapres Interior Design is beautiful. Her valuable tips can be applied on any home.

+ This is the type of the freshly cut branch season at the florist. I love the simplicity of blooming branches. This tablescape is the simplest you can design. Yet it is very elegant. Look how they put a group of three single bloom flower vase with flower or foliage as the center of the table. This way, they do not compete with the long branches.

Every month on Canadian house and Home, you can get a FREE preview of their latest edition. It is a partial edition.

    I haven’t had the chance to read the articles. I would definitely have to go and get a copy. Those blooming branches are spectacular and provide a nice focal point. Thanks for posting this!
