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

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
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 is all around us and it is a terrific source of fun and inspires creativity in those who are not naturally creative. Lounging in the hammock or on the sofa while perusing decorating magazines is a very pleasant way to spend quality time. All these “perfect” rooms give us plenty to think and dream about. Decorating ideas abound and whether or not we make a move to move closer to having the perfect home in reality, dreaming is still enjoyable. It is, however, often overwhelming because the rooms do look so perfect. Once some forward effort is put into actually decorating our homes, we often realize just how much work and expense is involved in striving for perfection. The route to the perfection that we desire also involves a bit of dust and disturbance along the way, in order to make your home look quite different and very much improved over its previous form.

Few well designed rooms lack some form drapery window treatment. Top quality fabrics and linings greatly affect the way the drapery, itself, will hang. It is the drapery hardware, itself, that often completes the look of the overall treatment. Decorative poles, finials and brackets are the home décor equivalent of fine jewelry on a snazzy outfit.

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
The unimaginative overuse of white has painted this useful lack of colour into a corner. White or beige have been the safe choice for real estate going on the market for a long time. The thinking was that white and beige go with anything. Not so, says, colour consultant, Marguerite Roberts. Continue reading
