Residential interior design and decorating in Mississauga, Oakville, Etobicoke, Burlington, Milton, Georgetown and west Toronto has been our forte since 1993. Interior design can take many forms and avenues, depending on the needs and personal taste of the client. We can, for instance, bring a tired interior to life through the addition of texture and dramatic artwork and accessories. The colour palette may be subdued as seen in the grey colour palette in the photo below, and yet, the room is vibrant and interesting. In another, more casual style of room design we may make use of a strong, optimistic colour palette. In the room below to the right we have a room that is essentially all white but with the addition of colour blocks of turquoise overlaid with vibrant art pieces, the room comes alive. In both rooms, the eye is drawn to points of interest and functional areas of the room design are delineated more clearly but without adding obstacles to movement in the space. Continue reading

We all desire an environment where we can spend relaxing down time in a quiet retreat from the pressures of our hectic daily lives. Colour and pattern play a large part in interior design projects and trends that come and go and the personal tastes of different clients make the process interesting. Continue reading

Hiring an Designer or Decorator

There are several myths about hiring a designer or decorator. One of these is that “It’s too expensive”. Another is “A designer will try to force a style on me that I won’t like”. In fact, the opposite is true. Continue reading

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

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.

The whole point of interior design is to produce interiors that inspire and wow, and that are comfortable and sensible to live in. Interior design has many aspects and can take many forms. Part of the fun is to push the envelope. Black can be a very useful tool in interiors that wow. It has been said that using black and white in interior design is one of the most classic combinations. As you can see in the photo of this foyer below where very little colour is used the finished effect is fabulous. The use of black in an interior lends elegance and a grounding effect. Who can deny the impact and beauty of zebra wallpaper? Combined with black and white artwork and accessories, the effect is surprisingly easy to live with on a day to day basis. Continue reading
Often in interior design we encounter clients who for one reason or another are not quite ready to proceed with full scale design purchases and extensive total renovations. Rather than live in a home that is dreary and unadorned while we work toward larger projects, it is much more preferable to tweak our surroundings and make them look as good as we can in the short term. Often we find that clients are happy with the results of the facelift for quite a long time. They wish they had done it sooner, rather than live with truly ugly rooms for years. Continue reading
Interior design may be fun, but it is not as easy as it looks sometimes. The miracle of television leads us to believe that we live in a wonderland where in a matter of days, top quality room designs are achieved. In real life, what appears to be simple and fast is entirely the opposite. Many times we have worked with clients who, through no fault of their own, are simply not able to visualize the final room before it has been completed. When these clients put themselves into the hands of an interior designer, there is a great deal of trust and communication required for the process to proceed to completion. Sometimes a little magic is required. Or what appears to be magic. 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
