Outdoor Entertaining

Interior design need not limit itself to the indoors. It can spill out into our outdoor living areas thus expanding our effective living space in a charming way. During the warm months, one of the nicest things to do of a summer evening is to have a few friends over and dine elegantly out of doors. The host needn’t work themselves to a frazzle. Pot luck rarely offends true friends. People love to bring something, whether it is homemade or purchased. Often it's a chance for many to try out a new recipe without having to do an entire dinner party. The hostess is able to concentrate on table decor and ambiance since they are not having to do all the cooking as well. The aim is to have a good time and not over burden one friend for the enjoyment of all. Continue reading

Many of our clients are busy young families with young children. Often, they have seen beautiful white rooms in home décor magazines and enjoy the look. No matter how regularly you vacuum and scrub, the fact remains that furnishings used in homes with small children need to be carefully chosen. Furniture used for everyday family seating is likely not an option in white, even if you like to redecorate often. There are several practical ways that easy going families can have beautiful rooms with the light look that they crave. Continue reading
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.

Interior Design for the Casually Chic

Often, people who like a casual look in décor, still want the wow factor. The French are famous for having achieved this in their French country look. They put together this look by paying attention to the lines of the furnishings, the proportion of the room to the furnishings, quirky accessories, often a touch of rusticity or faded elegance, flowing fabrics, and interesting textures and variations in colour. Relaxed casual room designs these days have changed into a somewhat more masculine look. That is not to say that they don't appeal to women. They do. They are appealing in the way that wood, wear and time appeal. Often we see exposed brick and room designs that would apply well to a loft condo home. 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

Updated Cottage Charm Goes Industrial

Whether or not you own a cottage, you may enjoy the ambiance of cottage style. What exactly is cottage style? If you were to ask ten different people what it is, you would likely get ten different answers. There would be a thread of continuity in all, though, because there are recurring elements that we recognize. Some of these are well-worn finishes, touchable surfaces, and a relaxed look. Often, vintage pieces from the 40’s and 50’s act as accessories. Tin signs, old wooden signs, enameled tin dishes, chipped paint, repurposed store fixtures and furniture all speak to the look. Continue reading

Ceiling- the 5th Wall

Living in this innovative age, it is nothing short of surprising that ceilings, which make up one-sixth of the space in a room, are still, most often simply painted white. This has been looked on as the simplest and even the best choice for decades. Continue reading
