A stylish bathroom to indulge in!

It’s Friday! And it’s been a busy month, folks… between a busy work schedule, March Break and a sick household, I’ll be happy when March is over.

Today I want to share with you the luxurious bathroom I decorated for my clients. A small place full of details!

My clients chose the sparkling granite countertop to complement their milky blueish-greyish purpleish choice for their cabinets. The colour chosen was Benjamin Moore’s Yukon Sky, part of the Designer Classic Collection.

(All from Target Canada – as we’ve said before, we’re really, really going to miss them!!)

Towels_blogShower Layout_blogWhite Shower Rings_blogI found the soft art print piece at HomeSense which invokes feelings of tranquility; perfect for the room where you hide away to sometimes. The light blues and greens, white puffy-like clouds with a hint of purple just creates a state of calmness.

Who wouldn’t want to take a shower in here? With that large size shower head! Surrounded by a pretty accent wrap-around pattern of purple/gray/beige tiles. A few minutes for themselves, especially after a long day of work.

That’s it for now.  The next tour will include their Master Bedroom. Until next time … have a great weekend!

Being welcomed home

Happy Friday everyone! Today we wanted to feature the warm yet functional entryway we designed for our client project series.

As you can see below, the previous homeowners had kept their golf clubs by the doorway. And, it had an outdated brass light fixture and flowery traditional runner welcoming them in.

Kitchen & Hallway_Before_
With little twin girls and two working parents, we wanted to create an entrance that would work for our clients in the mornings as they rush out the door to work and daycare, and when they come home from a tired day.

We wanted to keep this busy family of four’s entryway tidy and organized. So we did just that by personalizing four individual baskets to keep their mitts, hats, scarves and tiny shoes all stored in one spot.

We found this pretty white bench with shutter sliding doors and storage shelves (from Target Canada); it fit perfect with the rest of their main floor’s open-concept décor look and feel.  The vintage-inspired pillow was a surprise find from Kitchen Stuff Plus that complemented the solid navy blue sweater-style pillow (also from Target Canada – hey what can we say, we LOVE Target!).

We fell in love (so did our clients) with the wooden rustic accent mirror from Home Outfitters; we knew it would be the right fit to anchor the spot.  So our clients can have that one last look before they walk out the door.  The geometric modern area rug pattern (again from Target Canada) also fits the tone with the rest of their living room décor.  While, the chic light fixture completes the overall entryway with style and sophistication.

Stay tuned for the next reveal in our client project series … their luxurious bathroom!

Cosy up and unwind

Client Living Room, Burlington, Ontario, Canada

Hi everyone … as promised, I’m back with my client project’s Living Room unveil. As I had mentioned before, my clients bought a home that was outdated and in need of some tender loving care. Below is what it looked like while it was listed on the market.

This is what it looks like now!  A modern living room look and feel!

My clients wanted an inviting living room where they could relax, indulge and entertain with their twin little girls. All the while looking through their big bay window to welcome in the natural light. We chose the couch, rustic chairs and nesting tables, and coffee table together, while my client really, really wanted the two different eclectic table lamps. (She didn’t want a matching set.)

modern accents for living room
To play on the yellow/teal/gray colour scheme from their dining room chandelier, I brought in pretty accent pillows from Target (we’re going to miss them!) and Urban Barn while adding geometric vases from Bowring and Winners. The stylish, patterned grey curtains (from Urban Barn too) also complement the black and white pillows and silver elements in the room. My clients are big travelers so I wanted to bring in memories from their trips.  So I asked them to pick three favorite scenery shots from three different trips which I then enlarged into black and white photo prints and framed for them.

When they are cooking and entertaining, this is the gorgeous view they see from their open concept kitchen counter space.

And as they walk through their front door, look over to the right side, they are welcomed by a large accent mirror.  Instead of wall art, I wanted to encompass an unique piece that would be a “wow” statement as family, friends and guests entered their home.  And at the same time, help to open up their main floor some more.

In our next post, we’ll unveil their warm yet functional entryway …
