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

Fabulous Informal Interior Design

Interior design is for the less formal home as well as the formal. Some of the most beautiful interiors we have seen in high end magazines have been informal and casual. As usual, successful interior design is based on proportion, balance, style and colour. Often many of the furnishings have a well worn look to them, but the beauty is there, nevertheless.

When asked what our favourite colours are, the answer is often the same colour choices. No matter what the trends are, we often come back to the same shades again and again. By carrying colours throughout the home you can make your home feel consistent and seamless. Continue reading
Many of our clients live in smaller homes or condos in order to be close to city amenities, jobs, or family members. It should not be assumed that just because your home is small, that your furniture must also be small. In fact, done correctly, large pieces can actually make the space seem spacious. Using many smaller pieces can have the result of looking cramped and cluttered. A few well-chosen larger pieces can spark a beautiful décor scheme, as opposed to trying to cram in too many small pieces. 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.

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
Back in the day, accent walls were unheard of. All four walls were the same colour and, generally, it was a subdued, liveable shade only. Accent colour was only seen in decorative accessories. It was the daring homeowner who had a red or purple sofa, but was very unlikely to have a wall in a hot colour. We now live in a Golden Age of choice and clients are much more courageous than in the past, as a result of watching decorating shows on television. Our televisions are much larger and the images are in high definition, so we get a huge impact when these décor ideas are shown. We are able to see with our own eyes that these ideas really do look fantastic, and the home owners shown are often people who are similar in lifestyle to ourselves. Therefore, we are able to visualize these dramatic new ideas in our own living spaces. Continue reading

Achieving a Desired Effect with Colour

Colour has a strong link to our emotions. We can convey a variety of moods with colour because we react to colour emotionally, not always analytically. The home is the haven and resting place that we all return to after working all day or night. as the case may be, depending on our occupation. Work can be tiring and stressful. After all, that is why we call it "work". We want our homes to reflect our personality and taste, and we want to enjoy the time that we spend there and we also want to be comfortable there. That being said, we likely don't want to sacrifice drama, elegance, charm and interest just to create a calm or serene room design. Artwork, area carpets, striking accessories as opposed to chachkas, paint colour, lighting and window coverings chosen in a creative way can result in an inspiring yet restful room design. 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
