Samantha Pynn: Slim pickings
National Post
You can't really go smaller and expect to get more storage. I get that we want and need more storage — there are books devoted to the subject — but, really, we need less stuff. So, edit what you can, and don't buy a tall piece for your narrow space. It will make your dining room feel smaller and off-kilter, as though the buffet could come crashing down at any moment.

Barrel ceiling, heated deck, spa transform home
Edmonton Journal
In the sea of pastel houses lining their avenue in southwest Edmonton, Lorna and Gary King's home is impossible to miss. Their wide driveway leads to a striking, black and stone beauty that evolved from the inside out. "It's kind of a funny story," says Lorna, who jokes that the pair thought they were great decorators, until they enlisted interior designer Ann Love to update their master bedroom a few years ago.
