Okay, I love love love Canadian House & Home magazine - but I hate their website! It's confusing; it's hard to find useful articles; and generally, the layout is not user friendly at all. I've often wondered how such a superb publication can translate so poorly onto the web.

Well, it turns out that things aren't as bad as I thought... they're just ridiculously misplaced. I recently signed up for the House & Home newsletter and found a teeny tiny link to the House & Home photo galleries. Finally! Here is all the inspirational content I was looking for. A click through the galleries will show you some great images like these:

Which begs the question, why would you "hide" your photo galleries?? Heck, even using the Search function on the website won't bring up the links. I think I'll have to write the Editor on this one.

P.S. For the kitchen obsessed, click here to see the super-secret Kitchen galleries ;o)

    Argh! Stop it, stop it, please stop it! No more beautiful pictures of gorgeous home. My husband and I are going through the very difficult decision of whether to buy a weekender in the country, and I keep getting gorgeous decorating ideas from your pics (the kitchen from a couple of posts ago is my main reason for buying it!) It is not helping make teh decision any easier! As soon as I decide we can't afford it, I see another lovely idea here on your blog, and decide I must buy this house so I cna use all the ideas!!!!! (LOL, thanks for the links! Look out country, here i come!)

  3. I agree!! So confusing but worth every moment of being confused! :)

  4. Sorry peachy - I can't help posting all these lovely pics ;) You'll just have to buy that house and start a blog so we can see what ideas you end up using!

  5. You read my mind about House & Home's website. Thanks for this info!

  6. Im in love with the paint color of the second photo. Not that I have any use for it now but I still love it. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Mystery solved! I gave up trying to find anything on their site, so I'm glad you figured it out for me. :-)

    I'm in love with that pale blue/turquoise bathroom. -Julia
