As fall approaches, embrace the season rather than regret that summer is passing. The weather is still gorgeous and the colours of fall are fabulous. It’s a time to sweep away the clutter of summer, get back to cooking interesting things, and indulge in a little autumn décor. Interior design moves out onto the porch for awhile.It’s great for curb appeal, too. Continue reading
Interior design for the bedroom can help transform a private space like the bedroom into a sanctuary soothing in which to unwind and recharge. Sometimes because bedrooms are private spaces away from the view of visitors they are the last rooms in the home to benefit from our interior design efforts. Bedrooms are just as deserving of interior design embellishment as the rest of the home. Continue reading
Few well designed rooms lack some form drapery window treatment. Top quality fabrics and linings greatly affect the way the drapery, itself, will hang. It is the drapery hardware, itself, that often completes the look of the overall treatment. Decorative poles, finials and brackets are the home décor equivalent of fine jewelry on a snazzy outfit.

Innovation in interior design has resulted in new ideas for ways to construct our modern homes. Whether you live downtown, in the suburbs or in a rural area, what may be considered a modern day home may now be something a little outside the lines. The open concept style is one of these new ideas. Derelict warehouses have become sought after dwelling spaces. The ceilings are gloriously high and the windows are large. What is lacking is a feeling of warmth and cosiness, however, because there are far fewer interior walls than in the past. One of the ways that we can achieve definition of function is with colour.

What Todays Windows Are Wearing

Window coverings are often overlooked when clients are ready to update their homes. Often, in all innocence, they simply do not realize how bad their existing draperies and blinds look. They are used to them and while they would not tolerate such ugliness in the car parked in their driveway, they are unaware of the unsightliness of their window coverings. Let us show a few examples of what would greatly benefit from updating and a little interior design expertise.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
Lounging in the hammock or on the sofa while perusing decorating magazines is a very pleasant way to spend quality time. All these “perfect” rooms give us plenty to think and dream about. Decorating ideas abound and whether or not we make a move to move closer to having the perfect home in reality, dreaming is still enjoyable. It is, however, often overwhelming because the rooms do look so perfect. Once some forward effort is put into actually decorating our homes, we often realize just how much work and expense is involved in striving for perfection. There is a state of mind and a few techniques to make good use of this wealth of ideas and projects. 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
