In today’s world, we live a “show & tell” life. I am not convinced that we aren’t more show than tell as society operates on visuals and sharing the images of life that we come across minute by minute. And, let’s face it, it’s exhausting and generally not precisely very telling of who we really are.

Never has the idea of home become so important. The place where we end and start our days can offer a retreat from life’s hustle and bustle. And, if done right it can be the real reflector of your soul. Creating space that connects you to your true self is a trend!

I have long been a believer in the refuge of home and am happy to know that everyone else is jumping on board to carve some sanctity for themselves from the place we call home. There is no better way to feel comforted in your space than to feel connected—and looking around a room and feeling a sense of self is comforting.

In this issue, Canadian designer Brian Gluckstein is featured within our Designer at Home section (page 12). Brian brings readers into his own space which he designed with soulful purpose to create an environment filled with style that echoes his personality. We hope this feature encourages you to rethink your own bathroom space!

Throughout our pages, readers will be inspired with features that showcase the home as a treasure chest of living, honouring the sentiments of famed Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier.

Creating a home filled with intrigue and delight will present a place more telling of who you really are, rather than a showplace of what you think you should be.

Welcome home,
Mary
