One Room Three Looks

We were pretty excited to be asked if we would be interested in doing a photo shoot with On the Bay magazine, with the theme being one room being shown several different ways. The idea behind the article was to be able to show people how they can create a new look with their space […]

Give it Some Love

Do you have an old dresser kicking around the garage or attic? Do you need a dresser but the budget doesn’t really allow for shopping for new furniture? Why not join the popular trend of repurposing something old and treasured. With people spending more time at home and with the uncertainty of the future, many […]

The Importance of Curb Appeal

A local real estate agent asked me to consult with her clients on choosing a new paint colour for the exterior of their home in preparation to sell the property. When I arrived at the house my first thought was that the blue was rather adorable and that painting it something more neutral was perhaps […]

Total Transformation

Who doesn’t love a good transformation? Sometimes I forget that not everyone has the ability to envision what a space “could” look like and the endless possibilities. I worked with clients recently that had a great vision for how this dated home could look and I was excited to help them with the process. They […]

Inspiration Board

In my experience of helping clients for over 14 yrs., the biggest obstacle for most is that they are not able to envision how their space “could” look. Whether it’s buying a new home or decorating a home you currently live in, visuals are extremely important so you can see how it could be. We […]

Tired of stacks & stacks of magazines on the coffee table or in the magazine rack beside the chair in the corner of the room that you forget about? Here is a wall version that I think is super awesome and not difficult to do. It was in the family room at the Princess Margaret […]

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 […]

Furniture Facelift

Sometimes we adopt furniture pieces that we don’t exactly love when we get into a new relationship where we either get married or move in together. It is often a struggle when two people try to blend their furniture, as often they are very different styles or one of them doesn’t like their spouses furniture at […]

Can You Use a Cowhide in a Contemporary Setting?

The answer is absolutely!!! I had suggested to a client recently that she might consider adding a cowhide rug in her living room, to go with her black leather sofa & black swivel chairs, both modern in style. She said, “isn’t a cowhide too country for that?”. I said absolutely not & backed it up with […]
