A modern townhouse by Qanuk Interiors Inc. 

I am going to go out on a limb and state that this is one of the best designed townhouses I think I have ever come across. Sarah Keenleyside (who currently has a show on HGTV called Backyard Builds with Brian McCourt, and who coincidentally hails from Ottawa) and Lindsay Konior are principals of Toronto design firm Qanuk Interiors Inc. Every square inch is so well utilized and such attention to detail. From what looks to be a custom built-in sectional, to making use of under-stairs space to house a garden, to the most stunning double height bathroom I have ever seen, and then something as simple as a stackable washer/dryer behind a custom framed out floor-length mirror. Modern but with lots of wood and touches of wood make it really warm and inviting. And is that a sunk-in planter box I spot behind the kitchen sink?! This is all soooooo fabulous.

Heather Bullard is a contributing editor for Country Living magazine and a freelance editorial prop stylist and producer - DREAM JOB! She also lives in southern California and just finished having her DREAM HOME built. And dreamy is right! OMG I love every inch of this house. White and wood and bits of country and dabs of modern and white marble tiles and counter...I think I have died and gone to heaven. That kitchen tho'!

Tropical paradise

Thursday - the sad forgotten sister of Friday. No one ever yells "Thank God it's Thursday". No one ever counts down the last few hours until after work drinks or the freedom of the weekend. Thursday is a plod-along day, a "let's get it over so we can go to sleep and yell TGIF the next morning" sort of day. So here is my Thursday gift to you, a virtual escape to brighten up the stolid workaday. Tamarind Beach at Paradise Cove, a compound of three houses (for vacation rental) in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu. A sophisticated taste of island life steps from crystal blue waters and coral reefs. This is one virtual getaway I wish I could make in real life.
