It’s peak grilling and gardening season, but we’re hard at work on our fall issue and we’re excited to share what’s coming.

First off, we’re trying something new. Readers told us they want more DIY tips and ideas, so we’ve created a new section to inspire your next project.

For our first issue, we share ideas from designers’ own bedrooms to make yours warm and cozy for fall, on-trend window treatments to refresh any room, and a step-by-step tutorial on backyard composting. Plus, we welcome a new regular feature called Quick Fix. In each issue we’ll look at simple DIY ways to refresh one room on a budget.

Our fall features highlight what it’s like to purchase a condo before it’s built, with plenty of ideas to make this new space your own, and a look at a Saint John, N.B. heritage home that’s been transformed into a sleek, Arabian nights-inspired space.

In the food section we’ll take you to an Aboriginal dinner in Eel Ground First Nation near Miramichi, N.B. with Top Chef Canada finalist Chef Rich Francis, and visit with a Halifax cooking class at Shivani’s Kitchen to learn how to make Indian cuisine at home.

Our artist profile highlights the work of Newfoundland ceramicist Michael Flaherty, and his time making sculptures on the largely abandoned Grey Islands.

There will be lots more to see in September when the fall issue hits newsstands and mailboxes. Don’t miss an issue, subscribe today to ensure you receive your copy.

Until then, I’d love to read your emails about the homes, artisans and design trends that inspire you. We might even publish your email in the next issue. Visit us on Facebook to enter our latest contest (we recently celebrated our 10,000th like!), and connect with us on Twitter.
