Decorating With Flair In A Small Space

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
Colour choice in the home can be very stressful for many people. Colour does have a strong effect on our mood and the overall ambiance of a room and the entire home. Your comfort level in a room's interior design can be the result of the effect of, in general, the use of lighter, paler, or less intense colors which will enlarge the apparent space or the use of darker or more intense colors will shrink it. The impact of color on space in interior design is also a question of mood. Colour affects your mood, which in turn affects your perception of a space and your comfort level in it. Often, a paint colour consultation is a good idea and excellent value in the interior design of a home. The advice that usually follows this statement is to paint the walls a cool colour if you want a room to seem larger; if you want it to feel smaller, bathe the walls with a warm hue. Unfortunately, it isn't that simple. 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

How to Get Classic Coastal Style

Stuck in the city, working hard to get ahead, but dreaming of better things? Even if you can’t get away physically, you may be able to enjoy the fresh and charming décor style know as coastal, or beach, style in your own home. It’s a budget friendly look because it’s a little worn, a little “found object”, and it’s easy care and quite forgiving. It’s one of the few looks that really lends itself to slip covered furniture. It’s also a nice look that do-it-yourselfers with a little spare time can have input into. Here’s the dilemma. Continue reading
Small homes can be as beautiful as larger ones. The fact remains, however, that they are small. Today’s lifestyles are quite different from those of bygone years. For one thing, we have a lot more possessions. We have more furniture, clothing, décor items, hobby equipment and what have you. Many people simply don’t want a large home. Perhaps they have downsized from a larger home or they have decided to travel a lot. This does create the need for decorating and organizing compromises. Continue reading
Whether or not you have been to France and the French countryside and experienced the lavender fields, sunflowers and sunshine up close and personal yourself, you may still be drawn to the look of French country for your own home. It is a welcoming, olde world rustic décor style that fits into a grand, old chateau, a home in the French countryside, or your own home. It is more an ambiance and a charming way of decorating than a specific style. Continue reading
