The Hot List — Lynda Reeves In Conversation With Tommy Smythe and Darcie Watson

Lynda, Tommy and Darcie discuss their signature styles and key design moves.

Lynda Reeves is the founder and publisher of House & Home magazine and its French-language counterpart, Maison & Demeure. A former interior designer, Lynda has spent the past 30 years as a TV host and journalist, writing columns and speaking about design and decorating on national TV and radio. For six consecutive years, Lynda’s team designed and decorated the grand prize show home in support of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. Their work can be seen on the H&H website, both in print and video. Lynda lives in Toronto with her partner, travels frequently and loves to cook, entertain and weekend at her country home in the Hudson Valley.


Tommy Smythe‘s contagious enthusiasm and fun loving approach to decor and renovating have made him an international design favourite.  A career spanning more than 18 years has left no stone unturned in getting the message of good, practical and beautiful design to his many followers through television, print media and popular speaking engagements.  Known for his warm and personal mixture of fine art, vintage, antique and modern furnishings pulled together with a cutting edge colour sense, Tommy never lets it all feel too serious.  As he says, “If it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing!”


Darcie Watson is a licensed architect and registered interior designer whose professional experience spans a diverse range of disciplines including retail and residential interior design, architecture, immersive sculpture, digital fabrication and electronics.

After earning her interior design degree, Darcie worked with several leading interior design and architecture firms including II BY IV in Toronto and S. Russell Groves in New York, before returning to complete her architectural degree at the University of Manitoba. Over the past decade, Darcie worked on high-end residential projects with Toronto architect Paul Raff, and on interactive sculptures and large-scale adaptive reuse projects with artist-architect Philip Beesley. She also founded a small design practice called Areacode, handling residential renovations, additions and new-build homes.

Now a senior design associate with Mason Studio, Darcie’s work focuses on hotels, restaurants, retail stores, multi-unit residences, exhibitions and her true passion, conceptual installations.

Top Design Tips & Tricks — H&H Editor In Chief Beth Hitchcock In Conversation With Joel Bray And Scott McGillivray (Presented By Para Paints)

Beth, Joel and Scott share how to get today’s best looks.

Beth Hitchcock brings a lifelong passion for words and decorating — along with 19 years of experience in the magazine industry — to her role as Editor-in-Chief of House & Home magazine. With a keen eye for design, a Journalism degree and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing, Beth has written about and worked with some of Canada’s top designers, stylists and photographers. She has appeared regularly on TV and radio, and been a guest lecturer at colleges and universities across Canada. In her free time, Beth loves to travel (Marrakech is next on her list), watch baseball and putter around her century home in Toronto’s east end.


Born and raised in a small town in Southwestern Ontario, Joel Bray studied Fine Arts at Wilfrid Laurier University before attending Humber College for Interior Design. When Joel’s not producing decor pages at House & Home magazine, he spends his time at a lakeside cottage in the Kawarthas, or searching for “treasure” at thrift shops and flea markets. For Joel, an interior should be a true reflection of the people that live in it – always evolving, and full of personal mementos collected along the way. If you truly love something, there’s always a spot for it in your home.


Scott McGillivray, internationally renowned as the star of HGTV’s Income Property, is the definition of an entrepreneurial success story; an astute real estate investor, skilled contractor and accomplished businessman.

Scott McGillivray’s passion lies in educating people to make smart investment and renovation decisions that deliver financial rewards. His own foray into real estate investment began in university, and now over 15 years later, McGillivray’s innovative approach has led to a real estate empire with scores of investment properties across the US and Canada, housing hundreds of tenants.

McGillivray is also a skilled contractor and the award-winning TV host and executive producer of his latest hit series, Moving the McGillivrays, and the award-winning series Income Property on HGTV and DIY Network.  A highly sought-after television presence, he is a frequent guest on daytime TV north and south of the border, and one of the faces of HGTV’s latest specials, Home to Win and Urban Oasis, and their competition series Flipping the Block, as well as HGTV’s All-American Handyman and Canada’s Handyman Challenge series.

As an extension to this, Scott recently launched his McGillivray Mark program which recognizes products that he uses and trusts. Designed to help people make smart choices by simplifying the decision-making process, PARA is amongst the first brands to be included in the program for its line of designer colours, and its quality and value.
