In a world marked by uncertainty, our homes are more than mere structures. They are sanctuaries for solace, strength and transformation. Just like a chrysalis enveloping its precious inhabitant, our dwellings provide a haven for introspection, change and, ultimately, growth.

In this issue of Insight: The Art of Living® — “The Metamorphosis Issue” — we explore the powerful interrelationship between changes in the dynamics and design of our external surroundings and the personal transformation of the people within. Meet Canadian fashion designer Erdem Moralıoğlu and learn how coveted fabrics acquired from the iconic Chatsworth House were transformed into inspiration cues for his latest women’s collection.

Travel with us to Melides, Portugal, and find out how this quiet locale has evolved into a sought-after destination for some of the world’s most discerning artists and tastemakers. Browse the latest trends in décor and furniture, which reflect distinctive materials and designs found in nature’s continuously evolving state.


And within these pages, as well as at sothebysrealty.ca, discover our collection of beautiful homes across Canada, each one a sanctuary for personal retreat and renewal.

This season, we invite you to consider how personal metamorphosis can be inspired by a change or transformation in the spaces we call home.
