What do we mean by ‘quirky’ pillows?

You have probably noticed over the past 2-3 years that accent pillows with fun or wise sayings have been everywhere… and we love this fun trend too! We have used some in our model home projects and also some of our client decor projects. These ‘quirky’ pillows are a great way to express your style and personality all at once! Plus they are an affordable way to freshen up your home decor.

Pillows are a great and affordable way to update a bedroom or living room.  These quirky and fun pillows are a way to show personality in your space – they set a mood and show off your attitude!

Quirky pillows are also a fun addition to your decor for the seasons and the holidays…

Sometimes these pillows say what we are all thinking….like this one ‘more summer’! Who doesn’t want that?!

 

Pillows are another way to celebrate the seasons – this Fall pillow is fun and cheery and a perfect addition to a sofa or front entry welcoming friends and family!

summer-wreath-inspiration

A summer wreath is a great way to add a fresh look and some curb appeal to your home.  In the summer the gardens are in bloom and the colours are so bright and fresh.  We love a summer wreath because it adds just a bit some of the summer florals that we love!  If you are selling your home, a summer wreath is an easy (and affordable) way to add an inviting feel to your home.

This boxwood wreath is a bright pop of green and this wreath would also work well for spring and summer

Selecting a Summer Wreath

When it comes to selecting a summer wreath – you have a lot of options – there are so many florals, colours and greenery that work for summer decor. We suggest a wreath in colours and tones that coordinate and compliment your exterior landscaping – so take a look at your planters and flower beds – that way the wreath and your landscaping plan all work together.

This floral wreath with a mix of flowers and greenery has a main colour of coral and white and soft blue as accent colours – so in this case your flowers beds and planters should have a combination of these hues.

Multi-season wreath

If the idea of a new wreath for each season seems like too big of a commitment or you don’t have enough storage opt for a neutral or multi-season wreath.  Neutral tones work all year long as do simple greenery wreaths.

This year round wreath is a beautiful blend of neutral and great texture and  the “L” adds a personalized touch.

Some favourite Summer Wreaths:


24″ Hydrangea Flower Artificial Spring Floral Wreath


Distinctive Designs 22″ Lemon Leaf Wreath


Wendy 24″ Floral Wreath


Faux 30″ Mixed Floral Wreath


19″ Lavender Wreath with Burlap Hanger

Summer wreaths are just another way to add some curb appeal to your home – whether you are selling or you just want to create a welcoming atmosphere, a wreath is a perfect accessory,

sunny-sunday-style

Sunday….one of my favourite days of the week! Mostly because it is the one day that I totally kick back and have a lazy day.  Typically we spend Sunday as a family.  The weather is a big determining factor one what we do as a family – and that’s entirely up to mother nature.

Sunny Sunday…

This Summer, we get to spend Sunday as a family by the pool.  Our summers, here in Ottawa, Canada aren’t the longest so we really like to take advantage of the sunny weather when we can! The pool is a the perfect hang out on those hot days.

These are some of my sunny Sunday must-haves :

Fun Pool Floats – like this pink donut float (my daughter loves this pink one, the boys prefer it in brown but they all think it is hilarious)

Eating outdoors in the summer time is a favourite – the fresh air, the smell of the grill and enjoying the scenery (my husband loves to garden, so it’s nice to spend some time appreciating his hard work). These colourful cutlery pieces add a little extra summer fun in these bold and bright neons!

 

These floating drink holders are just too cute! They are perfect on those really hot days …Your drink fits right in the float – easy! You can use these in the pool, the lake and even the hot tub! I bought a set of these for our school silent auction and they were a hit!

You need to have a big, fluffy beach towel – and these ones are amazing! Lounging poolside with a book or wrapping yourself up after a dip in the water – these fun beach towels are perfect and they come in other prints, too!

 

I’m sure you scratching your head and wondering what this is but for me this is a life saver for days and nights outdoors.  You see the mosquitoes love me… and no matter what I do the moment I step outside they are all over me. This product, the SkeeterVac, has really made my outdoor experience so much more enjoyable –

 

We love to play at the pool but we also like to play around in the kitchen.  With a big family like mine – we often cook at home and we have recently expanded our garden this year to include more veggies! We have always had an herb garden and even for a novice gardener an herb garden is a great start and it’s so rewarding! We love fresh herbs especially basil and oregano – we add herbs to our salads, salad dressings, vinaigrette and our fresh and home made tomato sauce that we make at the end of summer.

How do you like to spend you Sunday?

herringbone-pattern-contemporary-classic

Herringbone pattern is a classic pattern – and it’s really making a strong come back in all areas of home decor and interior design.

 

It is a favourite of ours ! we love working with classics but we also love pattern – so this really is the best of both worlds in our eyes!

 

What is the herringbone pattern?

The herringbone pattern is an arrangement of rectangles (or parallelograms) used for floor tiles, back splash tiles, hardwood flooring and road pavement, so named for a resemblance to the bones of a fish such as a herring.

The herringbone pattern adds an accent to a space – a kitchen or a bathroom can really have a designer look with an added detail like the herringbone pattern.

How can you add the herringbone pattern to your space?

Herringbone pattern adds a little extra detail to any space without going really over the top but you still have some options with size, colour, materials an placement.  One of the reasons we love the herringbone pattern is that it is a classic , so you don’t have to be concerned about it being too trendy and going out of style.

This marble mosaic herringbone tile from Wayfair is perfect for a kitchen backsplash, a detail in a bathroom or a fireplace surround. We love this pattern as a kitchen backsplash or accent in a bathroom in either skinny marble tile or a standard subway tile, it adds a little extra detail to the whole room.  We like to see it will a grout colour that is a few shades darker (or lighter) than the tile itself so you can actually see the pattern.

It’s also a great pattern on a floor, either in tile or hardwood, this pattern adds another visual element to the space and a designer look.

Not sure if you like the herringbone pattern?

Just try it in smaller doses like a small shower nook in a bathroom, a fireplace surround or in your furniture like a table top or an upholstered piece. Pillows or throw blankets in this pattern are also a subtle way to ‘test out’ this pattern in your space to see if you like it.  This slipper chair in the herringbone pattern available at Wayfair – adds an interesting detail in neutral tones, it would be great in a bedroom, a den or living room.  The pattern is clean and definitely not overpowering – this version of the classic pattern is a bit more contemporary, too!

Some more herringbone pattern inspiration…

Love the reclaimed wood detail in the herringbone tile in this mudroom space – the mix of texture from the wood and the pattern adds a great designer detail and a custom look.

 

Herringbone pattern adds another element to this fireplace – the colour palette is simple and clean but the addition of the pattern adds some depth.

 

Rooms that don’t often get a lot of decorative attention can really look incredible with some added detail like a laundry room.  We love the herringbone slate tile floor in this laundry room and paired with the other elements in the space like the subway tile and the shaker cabinets make this laundry room beautiful!

Carpet doesn’t have to be plain and boring…yes you can get carpet in a herringbone pattern and we love it! It looks amazing as an area rug but we love it as a stair runner, it has a menswear quality about it and it is so clean and sophisticated!

What do you think of this classic pattern?

moody-blues-decorating-blue

Blue is a great colour to decorate with! There are so many shades of blue that you will definitely find one that suits your taste and style.  Blue is also a great classic colour so if you invest in some pieces you don’t have to worry that it wasn’t money well spent.

Blue is a great accent colour because it also works will all neutrals – white, cream, taupe, grey, brown you name it – it works! Blue is also a great colour to add to your exterior decor! In the spring and summer months, we see these beautiful blue tones in outdoor furniture and accessories, too!

Today’s focus is on the softer shades of blue – the aqua tones, robin’s egg, turquoise – to add a fresh spring / summer brightness to your space.  Adding some simple blue accessories to your space can transform your whole room without undertaking any huge renovation projects.

Here are just a few of our ‘moody blue’ picks:

Pillow Covers:

The pillow covers are perfect for spring and summer – the soft blue colour is light and airy and the nature motif is a great addition to a bedroom or living room.  These are pillow covers, so you can layer your ‘cooler’ weather pillows with these so you don’t need to find storage space for the ‘old’ pillows.

 

Table Lamp:

Lamps are a great way to add a pop of colour to a room.  We love turquoise and this lamp from Bungalow Rose  is perfect! We love the colour of the base and the shape, too – and the simple white drum shade gives the lamp a clean look and let’s that beautiful blue tone really stand out!

Wall Tile:

Something we are starting to see more of this year is interesting tile! We are seeing more colourful and patterned tiles in kitchens and bathrooms – either as a small accent (like a shower nook or just a small strip) or a full splash of vibrant colour (or pattern).  A blue tile paired with white or grey is a great look in a bathroom.  To make a statement you don’t have to use a lot.

Area Rug:

Area rugs are another favourite way to add visual interest in a room – we love what a patterned rug can do in a room and this stunning Blue and Ivory Rug from Bungalow Rose is a gorgeous addition to any space.  The colour and pattern are so light and fresh!

 

 Art:

Art really pulls a room together and it’s also an easy and affordable way to add something new to your space.  When it comes to art, don’t feel like you have to spend a lot of money on ‘one of a kind’ pieces – choose something you like! We love the colours in this art piece – the tones and fresh and soothing!

Accent furniture:

Smaller or accent furniture pieces like this armchair and another way to add some blue to your space without a major overhaul to your room.  We love the mix of the soft blue with the natural wood. The lines and size of this chair make it perfect for a smaller space or a corner.

 

Kitchen storage:

Don’t forget about the kitchen! The kitchen isn’t often a room that we think about adding decor to – but why not? There are so many cute, colourful and useful kitchen gadgets and items. We love this bread box, it has a bit of a retro feel and look especially in this colour.

 

Kitchen towels:

Add a pop of colour with your kitchen towels (aka tea towels, dish towels).  Just because something is useful doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty too!

 

We love this shade of blue – it’s a great hue for spring and summer accents in the home!

5-best-houseplants-grow-indoors

We are so thrilled to welcome our Guest Blogger – Marnie Bennett!

Houseplants are a great way to improve the look of any room in your home. They add a bit of nature to your indoor space and can make a room feel warm and inviting. There are also health benefits to incorporating plants into your house; they can remove toxins from the air and help protect you against allergens. If you’re a recent first-time home buyer or live in a condo in a busy Ottawa neighbourhood, you may not have the time or adequate space to grow an entire outdoor garden.

In this case, houseplants are a nice alternative. They allow you to satisfy your green thumb and still explore the benefits of home gardening without demanding all of your free time. These five plants are ideal for smaller spaces like apartments and condos where natural sunlight is often limited. They are hardy and difficult to kill which is perfect if you don’t have the time to care for a large outdoor garden or if you are new to home gardening and aren’t quite sure where to start.

  1. ZZ plant-

     

    The ZZ plant is a great choice if your new Ottawa condo doesn’t get a lot of sunlight. It can thrive in indirect light and only needs to be watered three times a month. It grows slowly so you don’t have to worry about it claiming a space for its own. It doesn’t attract pests which is a concern for a lot of first-time home buyers; after finally establishing yourself as a homeowner, the last thing you want is for pests to move in with you! The ZZ plant is stylish and exotic looking with beautiful glossy green leaves that will brighten up any room in your house.

  2. Snake Plant –

    The snake plant, also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, is a very popular plant for those who have the tendency to unwillingly neglect their indoor plants. These plants are extremely tolerant and forgiving. Snake plants do best in the sun, but they can also survive quite well in the shade. They need to be watered every two weeks and prefer under-watering to over-watering. Many people choose this plant for its sculptural appearance and long, green leaves. As an added bonus, the snake plant converts CO2 at night so it’s the ideal plant for a bedroom. It has other health benefits as well such as removing toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air.

  3. Pothos

    Many first-time homebuyers who quickly realize they have a less-than-green thumb opt for the pothos plant, also known as Devil’s Ivy. It is easy to care for and adds a warm, welcoming touch to any room. It is also adept at purifying the air from harmful toxins. It can thrive in low light and does well with a weekly watering. Pothos plants are ideal for hanging because they are a trailing vine that can grow up to six feet indoors. However, you can prune it to your desired length and shape if you prefer a smaller, more robust-looking plant. It adds a beautiful touch of lush greenery to your home and can be a great accent piece to your new Ottawa condo or house.

  4. Lucky Bamboo

    According to Feng Shui advocates, a lucky bamboo plant has the power to bring peace, strength, and luck into a home (a great combination for first-time home buyers!). It’s an inexpensive plant and very easy to care for. It prefers low light or shade and you simply have to change the water once every two weeks for it to survive. If you notice the leaves losing their vibrant green colour, it may be getting too much sunlight. It adds a modern look to your house and an element of architectural design. With all of these benefits plus the power to remove negative energy from your home, the lucky bamboo plant is the perfect choice to explore your interest in home gardening.

  5. Peace Lily

    If you want some flowers mixed in with your foliage, consider adding a peace lily plant to your home. This plant has long, dark leaves and elegant white flowers. Its compact size is a perfect fit for small spaces and it doesn’t require too much sun. If its leaves turn yellow, it’s best to move it farther away from the window. It also doesn’t need to be watered frequently and it will tell you when it needs re-hydration by bending its leaves downward. With its ability to purify the air, the peace lily plant is another great option for improving indoor air quality.

    With all of these great options, there’s no reason why you can’t cultivate a home garden in your new house. Even if you don’t have the space, time, or expertise to grow an outdoor garden, you can enjoy all of the benefits of adding greenery to your home with some hardy indoor plants.

    Have fun experimenting and enjoy your new indoor garden!

connect-dots-decorating-polka-dots

We love a Polka Dot print! Polka Dots are a fun print to decorate with – they add a touch of whimsy and a bit of a retro vibe to a space.

What’s the History of the Polka Dot?

The Polka Dot is a print that really became popular in the US in the mid 1920s.  America’s love affair with the polka dot began, perhaps, in 1926, when Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swimsuit. Shortly after, in 1928, Disney introduced its cartoon darling Minnie Mouse wearing a red polka dot dress and matching bow. Throughout the 1930s, polka dot dresses appeared in stores, the fabric suddenly subversive, nipped in by ribbons and accentuated with bows. In the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe was famously photographed in a polka dot bikini. And of course, the famous 1960’s hit song “Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Bikini“.

 

 

The Polka Dot pattern is a series of circles that are evenly spaced and of the same size.  A spot print isn’t necessarily consistent in spacing or size

The Polka Dot definitely has a retro feel but also a feminine one.  The Polka Dot has mostly been used in women’s fashion but it definitely makes a statement in home decor.

Ways to decorate with Polka Dots

A nursery –

we love the fun and whimsy that polka dots add to a bedroom.  We love this accent wall – it really adds visual interest to the room without using old colour and this can easily transition into a toddler room (and a little girl’s room and a teenagers bedroom)

 

Polka Dot Furniture

try re-upholstering a simple piece of furniture with a polka dot fabric – this will add a fun element into any room and it will turn a simple piece into a statement piece.  It’s a great addition to any room! This chair is an example of a spot print but isn’t it great?!

 

 

Polka Dot drapery and window treatments

we love a patterned window treatment – it adds a nice contrast to the room against a solid wall and it’s a perfect addition to a room that doesn’t have wall space for art!

 

 

Polka Dot Pillows –

A polka dot pillow is another great way to keep a room from looking too serious.  Polka dot prints comes in all colours – so you have a lot of options! We love different sizes and scales of polka dot prints,  too. Plus polka dots are fun to mix with other prints!

 

Polka Dots in the bedroom –

Polka dot bedding can be used in so many ways on a bed.  Just the pillows, bed sheets or the duvet cover.  Mixing the polka dots with solids and other prints makes any bedroom unique.  We love this bed set in white and gold with polka dots and stripes.

 

 

There are so many fun ways to decorate with this retro print – which is your favourite?

friday-favourite-bungalow-rose

Bungalow Rose is a brand that we have recently stumbled upon. We are always looking at furniture, art, accessories, paint and more – on the hunt for new pieces, products, colour combos and even brands for our decorating clients.  Recently through 2 of our clients we stumbled upon this amazing collection that has this incredible global meets vintage energy. 

Bungalow Rose is all about getting that ‘well-traveled’ look. Mixing bohemian chic with global influence. We love their mix of tribal prints, Eastern influences and Old-World charm. Their combination of prints and colours adds a truly unique look to any space.

 

If you love that global look – this is a line for you.  We have broken down some of our favourite pieces all available through Wayfair –

Bungalow Rose Favourites:

 

Rug-

Let’s start with this amazing blue and ivory rug with a vintage finish – it’s so fresh and perfect for spring and summer home decor.

Bungalow Rose Hand-Tufted Ivory/Blue Area Rug

 

Sideboard-

This amazing wood sideboard in natural stain with a chevron pattern is so simple but so chic! This actually could work in a home with a Scandinavian home decor style.

Bungalow Rose Ehret Sideboard

 

Pouf-

We are big fans of poufs! Whether it’s for extra seating or for a foot stool – they just add another shape, another texture and another height in the room.  We love these Moroccan influenced poufs in leather with embroidery detail.  We love this grey one !

Bungalow Rose Soukaina Pouf Leather Ottoman

 

Accent Pillow –

Accent pillows are a great way to add some colour and visual interest – Bungalow Rose has so many amazing pillows – We could have spent days looking through just pillows! I’m loving the freshness of the blue and white with the coral hue!

Bungalow Rose Oliver Mod Geometric Outdoor Throw Pillow

 

Table lamp

We love what an interesting lamp can do for a room.  Lighting can really add to the decor style of your room – so don’t just take anything.  This turquoise lamp is incredible – the shape and the colour are just stunning and they wok with the boho vibe!

Bungalow Rose Kami 29″ Table Lamp

 

Art –

This art piece is incredible – again it has the global look but in neutral and metallic tones – the pattern is very detailed but not overwhelming.  This could be added to any space that’s looking for something interesting but not over the top!

Bungalow Rose Clear My Mind Framed Graphic Art

 

Decor Accessories –

Vases are a must have accessory! On a console, by a fireplace or sideboard – the colours, textures and varying heights – vases are a great decor item – be sure to group them in odd numbers!

These are just a few of our favourite pieces from Bungalow Rose – but if you love that global look with fabulous colours and prints (even for just a touch here and there) be sure to go to Wayfair and take a look for yourself – there is something for everyone!

5-favourite-paint-colours-right-now

If you have been reading our blog (thank you!) you have noticed that we have recently posted some amazing before and after photos of a paint transformation.  The right paint colour truly make a huge difference! 

Paint is your backdrop, your canvas and with paint you can really set the tone for your decor style.  Like all designers and decorators we definitely have our favourite paint colours but it really does depend on your light, existing finishes and the mood you want to set .  We want to share with you our 5 favourite paint colours (and in no particular order)

Here are our 5 favourite paint colours (right now)…

#1. Paint – Classic Gray:

Benjamin Moore ‘Classic Gray’ is a soft and light grey tone .  It is on the warm side. It is a favourite of ours – we have used it with our investment clients – to give their rental properties a current and fresh look but still bright and clean.  We are also using this in one of our ‘sample board’ projects for a townhome community in the city!

 

 

This stunning living room, designed by Studio McGee, is a great example of ‘Classic Gray’ walls – see how light and warm it is! Even Jillian Harris did a Home tour video of the home she just sold as was talking about her love of Benjamin Moore’s ‘Classic Gray’. These 2 amazing designers can’t be wrong!

 

#2. Paint – Stonington Gray:

Benjamin Moore’s ‘Stonington Gray’ This is a true grey tone that we have used a number of times. It’s a medium tone grey that looks greta in space where you want to add just a touch a depth. It’s still very fresh and clean looking too! It’s from the Historical collection and works nicely with exteriors too.

 

 

Stonington Gray looks great in this eat-in kitchen space! It makes the space look fresh and current and with all the big windows and natural light this colour adds depth without making the space feel dark. The white light shade, trim and chairs are a nice contrast to the grey wall paint.

 

#3. Paint – Swiss Coffee:

Benjamin Moore’s ‘Swiss Coffee‘ not a new colour but a new favourite of ours! It’s rich and creamy warm white and it’s amazing with the whole Farmhouse style.  It’s so clean and crisp and looks great as a canvas for artwork and other decor pieces. We are using this in a model that we are working on right now – that’s launching in early June (stay tuned…)

 

 

This living room designed by Onekindesign.com – it’s incredible!! So now that you have taken in the beauty of this room, here’s why we love this paint colour.  It really allows the other elements in the room to be the star and it pulls everything together. The wood and the stone really stand out and give the room a big WOW factor but that paint compliments and adds a subtle warmth to the room.

 

#4. Paint – Revere Pewter:

Benjamin Moore’s ‘Revere Pewter’  This is another paint colour from the Benjamin Moore Historical collection.  This is a great colour for anyone who is a bit hesitant to jump into a gray paint colour.  This is more a member of the taupe family or a warm grey.

 

You can see here, in the image above, how soft, neutral and warmth this paint colour is! It’s enough pigment on the walls but not too deep or intense.  It is a great neutral taupe-y tone without any yellow under tones. It’s great for gender neutral space or even a boy’s bedroom – you can all the accessories and colours you want and they will work!

#5. Paint – Wedgewood gray:

Benjamin Moore’s ‘Wedgewood gray’ is a beautiful shade of blue.  Typically we are big fans of neutral walls but if I had to pick a colour it would be something in a shade of blue. This is a great colour for certain areas of the home that you want to bring colour into with art and accessories so for instance a mudroom or front entry. There’s usually a lot of trim, flooring and other hard textures, so a bit of colour on the wall breaks it up a bit.

 

So here’s an entry painted out in Wedgewood Gray – it’s such a fresh and clean colour.  The white trim and wall paneling really pop too.  The hall tree is painted in Kendall Charcoal – both Benjamin Moore colours – it’s a great colour combination with the white and blue.

So these are our 5 favourite paint colours right now….what do you think?
