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.

Success in room design is a subjective thing, because we all have different tastes and expectations for home decor. Continue reading

Sight lines into even a small garden should be considered while executing our interior design plans. 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.
