We all love a sense of home, freedom, and ease. Space does this for many of us, but space costs money. Until we can afford space, we may live many years without it. This does not mean that our homes need to lack style and a sense of space. To do this, they must be efficient. They can also be beautiful, however small. There is a joy in triumph over inefficiency and dreary surroundings. Continue reading

What Todays Windows Are Wearing

Contemporary décor style has lightened up in today’s age, and become more accessible to those who would normally lean more to the traditional side of things. Window coverings are popular in a big way and the trend is to a relatively minimal approach, while retaining the fullness and glamour of traditional styles. Some of the most clean-lined window coverings are shutters. These come in a wide variety of vane sizes and are not always white. We find that many of our clients love shutters because of their clean lined look and excellent functionality. Continue reading

What You Should Know About Paint

Interior design these days can involve the client or home owner doing some of the work. If you are a Do It Yourself painter, there are a few things that are crucial to a professional looking paint job. The first is that cheap paint is poor economy. Good quality paints cost more because they have more of the components that determine covering ability, durability, fade resistance, smoothness and splatter. Your paint job will “ugly out” a lot sooner with cheap paint. Continue reading
Interior design takes many forms and the Urban Country Look is one of them. This design has great charm and appeal to a wide variety of clients, younger as well as older. It is an eclectic and fun form of interior design. There are many ways to achieve this look. There are also many ways to miss the mark and achieve only a drab, worn mish mash. A person’s home speaks volumes about that person. We love to surround ourselves with treasured objects, textures, colours and memories. Many people’s lifestyle has shifted from mainly formal rooms dedicated to one purpose, to a more casual lifestyle where rooms are more versatile and one purpose flows from one room to another. Living has also shifted outdoors due to advances in more weather resistant materials for use on decks, porches and patios. Continue reading
The unimaginative overuse of white has painted this useful lack of colour into a corner. White or beige have been the safe choice for real estate going on the market for a long time. The thinking was that white and beige go with anything. Not so, says, colour consultant, Marguerite Roberts. Continue reading
One our clients in Oakville called us in to help decorate her new lakefront condominium in the Bronte area of Oakville last year. She had some very good classic pieces of furniture, and had downsized from a much larger home. It was time to add some colour and comfort and a few decorative pieces of art. We did a paint colour consultation, painting, added a couple of interesting wallpapers, did new custom window treatments in two rooms, added two area carpets, new lighting, and added custom artwork. This client loves colour and was very upbeat and fun to work with. Continue reading

Luxurious Bedroom Update

Home décor can become tired long before the individual design elements have actually worn out. Bringing in new colour by way of fresh new bedding, a new headboard , draperies or accessories can make all the difference in the world. A fresh new wall colour seems an easy an inexpensive fix, but for some home owners, the thought of moving all the furniture is simply too much. If you hire painters rather than painting yourself, there is also an element of cost. One surprisingly simple solution is to have simple panel draperies that you swap in seasonally, or when the room starts too look tired. Ceiling heights in a home are consistent so it is conceivable that you could move your draperies from one room to another. This would make a big change in the look of the room, and involve no extra cost. The wall colour would need to be a choice that complemented all the draperies in the collection. Continue reading
