Bringing Glam to the Bedroom

We love it when we get the call “I’ve lived in my condo for a year & still don’t have it looking the way I want.” Music to the ears. One of the rooms our client wanted to transform was the bedroom. She lives in a beautiful Yaletown condo in Vancouver with stunning views of the […]

The Wonderful World of Drapes

Drapes in my opinion are luxurious. They complete a room & give it that finishing touch. They add warmth as well as texture and can be made using beautiful fabrics that tie in the rest of the colours in the room. If you love that darkness you get when you stay in hotels, that is […]

Struggling with Hanging Art?

Yesterday Suze Interiors helped a new homeowner with the finishing touches of moving into their first condo. Everything was unpacked, but there were little stacks of photos and artwork leaning against the walls & sitting in small piles throughout the space. The first thing that needs to happen before you hang the artwork, is to […]

Tips for Painting Your Ceiling

Most ceilings are painted white, to match the trim & doors of a space. If your ceiling is stucco, then by all means paint it white. Otherwise, in contemporary spaces, why not use a tint of the wall colour, either at 25 or 50%. This will visually heighten the sense of space in the room, […]
