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
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
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

Interior design is not just for clients who own large homes. In our interior design projects, we often meet clients who live in very small spaces, and medium sized homes as well, and the trend is growing. This is not necessarily a bad thing if we analyse the true needs of the client and discover the lifestyle that genuinely suits them. The clients also needs to realize and face the limitations of their space. There is no need to pine for a larger home when it is quite possible to make a small home a palace. Often, a smaller home can be made so pleasant to live in that there is no real need to move up to a larger one. For instance, many people are quite happy with a cozy dining area. This can be accommodated into a small area. A bedroom that is really to small to be a pleasant bedroom can be made into a wonderful dressing room. Continue reading

Ceilings with Style

Frequently, ceilings are bland and boring, simply painted white and kept unadorned to blend in or disappear. It is most often assumed that the safe choice is a white ceiling. Colour consultant, Marguerite Roberts, says that people opt for white ceilings in order to make them less noticeable. The room below would not be as spectacular had the ceiling not been embellished.

Decorating With Flair In A Small Space

We all love a sense of home, freedom, and ease. Space does this for many of us, but space costs money. Until we can afford space, we may live many years without it. This does not mean that our homes need to lack style and a sense of space. To do this, they must be efficient. They can also be beautiful, however small. There is a joy in triumph over inefficiency and dreary surroundings. Continue reading
Colour choice in the home can be very stressful for many people. Colour does have a strong effect on our mood and the overall ambiance of a room and the entire home. Your comfort level in a room's interior design can be the result of the effect of, in general, the use of lighter, paler, or less intense colors which will enlarge the apparent space or the use of darker or more intense colors will shrink it. The impact of color on space in interior design is also a question of mood. Colour affects your mood, which in turn affects your perception of a space and your comfort level in it. Often, a paint colour consultation is a good idea and excellent value in the interior design of a home. The advice that usually follows this statement is to paint the walls a cool colour if you want a room to seem larger; if you want it to feel smaller, bathe the walls with a warm hue. Unfortunately, it isn't that simple. Continue reading

Beautiful White Rooms

We’ve all see rooms that are painted white but have missed the mark because they are too stark and boring. Room designs done all in white are not necessarily an easy style to achieve. High end interior design is shown in various interior design magazines. The images of white rooms in these magazines are more often than not successful versions of this all white style of room design. Sometimes they are not successful. Success in room design is a subjective thing, because we all have different tastes and expectations for home decor. Continue reading
