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. There is a state of mind and a few techniques to make good use of this wealth of ideas and projects. 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
Chocolate, mocha, latte, and coffee. What's not to like? These days, some say that the colour brown is passe in interior design. Colour specialist, Marguerite Roberts, of Mulberry Interiors in Oakville, Ontario says that it is not so. Brown was definitely overused in basement rec rooms of the distant past. Part of the resistance to brown in decor is due to the fact that these old rec rooms remained un-renovated for far too long. Maybe people purchased nice cars instead. We really don't know why so many people's basements looked like this one. We never wanted to see brown again. Brown has been around the block a lot as well, but it has a certain staying power, especially when it is reinvented in creative ways. It is rich, warm and earthy rather than boring or outdated. It can even be exciting when it is used in very deep shades. Continue reading
Often we encounter clients who, for various reasons are unwilling or unable to paint their rooms. They may prefer neutral walls, they may be renting, or they may be planning to sell the home within the next few years. They do want some colour in their home, and often they want to take their investment in home furnishings and interior design with them when they move. 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

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.

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. This client loves colour and was very upbeat and fun to work with. Continue reading
