Decorating With Dramatic Black

The whole point of interior design is to produce interiors that inspire and wow. Interior design has many aspects and can take many forms. Part of the fun is to push the envelope. Black can be a very useful tool in interiors that wow. As you can see in the photo of this foyer below where very little colour is used the finished effect is fabulous. The use of black in this interior lends elegance and a grounding effect. Continue reading

Soft Spoken Colour in Room Designs

Working for many years in interior design, we have found that some clients love colour and lots of drama, some abhor colour, and other clients love all the variations in between. If you don't want to be overwhelmed by colour but don't want to live in a world of all beige either, we are here to say that there are ways to carry colour through your home with subtlety. If you love hot shades but don’t dare use them on large furnishings or whole rooms, there is a solution. In the wonderful world of décor, subtle backgrounds actually showcase accent colours most effectively. Continue reading
Residential interior design and decorating in Mississauga, Oakville, Etobicoke, Burlington, Milton, Georgetown and west Toronto has been our forte since 1993. Interior design can take many forms and avenues, depending on the needs and personal taste of the client. We can, for instance, bring a tired interior to life through the addition of texture and dramatic artwork and accessories. The colour palette may be subdued as seen in the grey colour palette in the photo below, and yet, the room is vibrant and interesting. In another, more casual style of room design we may make use of a strong, optimistic colour palette. In the room below to the right we have a room that is essentially all white but with the addition of colour blocks of turquoise overlaid with vibrant art pieces, the room comes alive. In both rooms, the eye is drawn to points of interest and functional areas of the room design are delineated more clearly but without adding obstacles to movement in the space. Continue reading
Nothing says “rich, formal and luxurious” like billowing silk or velvet curtains. Along with a sumptuous look, they lend softness and glamour to the décor of the formal dining room. The curtains and drapes are as important to the interior design of the dining room as the furniture, linens, and chandelier. While the lines and finish of the furnishings are a key element in the room, it's essential to have some fabric to add a touch of softness and luxury. Even if the other rooms of the home do not have full draperies, it is desirable to have them in the dining room to carry a formal ambiance. Continue reading
Classic interior design often includes linen. If you were searching for the perfect fabric for your interior design project update, much of what you’d look for is present in linen. Legendary comfort as well as strength and beauty are what attract us. Linen has been preferred for centuries as a canvas for fine oil paintings due to its strength and durability. We would not have the works of the Grand Masters today had it not been for the unique qualities of linen. Linen is one of the world’s oldest textiles, being used in Eqypt about 5000 B.C. It is much stronger and glossier than cotton. Continue reading
Dining room interior design can take many forms. Function of the room is very important in the room design, but often, the dining room may be a room that is seldom used but often observed. It may also be a showpiece or even a status symbol. Many of our most expensive possessions may be in the dining room but seldom get any use. This is a shame and just takes a little thinking outside the box to rectify. Continue reading
In our interior design projects we are often asked to produce room designs which do not have much colour. The desired finished effect desired is still one of impact and impressiveness. It is useful in these cases to use a fair amount of white or off white so that the eye is able to bounce around the room. When the eye encounters darker or more colourful pieces in the room, such as a pair of colourful or dark chairs, the eye stops and, considers the chairs, then moves on around the room. The white used in the room maintains a feel of spaciousness, but this type of room design is only successful if the client likes white. Many clients do not. 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. Continue reading
When browsing collections of interior design photos, one would get the impression that most homes do not have a television. On the contrary, television watching is often a large part of the lifestyle of many families. In fact the new flat screen models are so popular that old style televisions that still work well are being kicked to the curb at a pace. The dilemma, then, is where to place these large new appliances that do not appear in glossy interior design photos. Continue reading
