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

How to Get Classic Coastal Style

Stuck in the city, working hard to get ahead, but dreaming of better things? Even if you can’t get away physically, you may be able to enjoy the fresh and charming décor style know as coastal, or beach, style in your own home. It’s a budget friendly look because it’s a little worn, a little “found object”, and it’s easy care and quite forgiving. It’s one of the few looks that really lends itself to slip covered furniture. It’s also a nice look that do-it-yourselfers with a little spare time can have input into. Here’s the dilemma. 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
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
Often, people who like a casual look in décor, still want the wow factor. The French are famous for having achieved this in their French country look. They put together this look by paying attention to the lines of the furnishings, the proportion of the room to the furnishings, quirky accessories, often a touch of rusticity or faded elegance, flowing fabrics, and interesting textures and variations in colour. Relaxed casual room designs these days have changed into a somewhat more masculine look. That is not to say that they don't appeal to women. They do. They are appealing in the way that wood, wear and time appeal. Often we see exposed brick and room designs that would apply well to a loft condo home. Continue reading

Today’s Eclectic Cottage

Whether your cottage is actually at a lake or it is an urban small home, décor is often a large part of the enjoyment. Comfort and easy living coupled with lots of personality convey the charm. Cottage style is a very loose term and therein lies the fun of it. In our more formal city homes, often one décor style is dominant and more edited. In cottage living, we are able to give greater rein to our eclectic leanings. Old can be mixed with new, as it can in city home décor, but there is often a more rustic look to the furnishings.
