joys OF HOME

Style at Home - - From Our Editor - Erin McLaugh­lin [email protected]­ @er­in­m­claugh­lin1 in­sta­­lin1

Af­ter a whirl­wind sum­mer of trav­el­ling, it’s a wel­come re­lief to revel in the cozy com­forts of my home. With the on­set of fall, I’m look­ing for­ward to cook­ing in my own kitchen, sleep­ing in my own bed and even host­ing a few get-to­geth­ers.

This is­sue cel­e­brates the joys of hi­ber­nat­ing, start­ing with our Style News col­umn ( page 17) and its se­lec­tion of prod­ucts high­light­ing the beauty and warmth of fall dec­o­rat­ing, and wrap­ping up with the recipes and wine pair­ings show­cased in “Vino Vinho Vin” ( page 92) – per­fect for a date night chez vous. The in­te­ri­ors fea­tured through­out these pages also boast the won­ders of stay­ing in. Check out “Trend Fore­cast­ing” ( page 34), in which in­te­rior de­signer Cyn­thia Soda demon­strates how she cooked up a trendy kitchen with stay­ing power for her par­ents, who love to en­ter­tain. And in “Finely Tuned” ( page 42), home­owner Me­gan Bon­nell and her hus­band, Evan, live for the laid-back vibe of their Toronto home: “Whether we’re en­ter­tain­ing or it’s just the two of’s such a cozy place to hang out.”

In our fea­ture homes sec­tion, we tour four dreamy familyfriendly abodes in which we’d like to spend all of our time: de­signer and TV per­son­al­ity Jil­lian Har­ris’s beyond-stun­ning French Coun­try-style house in Kelowna, B.C. ( page 62), a 1929 Toronto home up­dated with a so­phis­ti­cated con­tem­po­rary feel ( page 72), a pic­ture-per­fect week­end home in the Que­bec coun­try­side (page 78) and a su­per stylish yet ca­sual new build in Cal­gary (page 85).

Since the best part of stay­ing in (in my hum­ble opin­ion) is kick­ing up your feet and read­ing this mag­a­zine cover to cover, I’ll let you get to it.
