We staged this East Hamilton home last summer. It was mainly empty except for the master bedroom, kitchen and family room. But we still had to bring side tables and lamps plus accessories to finish the look. The busy healthcare professional and bachelor didn’t have time for himself, let alone decorating it the way he envisioned. That’s when we came in.
We used our local rental furniture supplier to stage the rest of the home to get it ready for sale. The client was so impressed that we were able to pull off the vision they were wishing for. So impressed that they even took notes to decorate their next home with our inspiration. (No artwork was hung at the request of the client as the walls had been freshly painted.)

We recently staged a Downtown Hamilton condo that sold within 2 days!
For staging this condo, we based our colour theme on the seller’s red and green existing artwork. We brought in our fun, green shaggy pillow set (new to our staging inventory) and red faux centrepiece accent balls to make the living room pop as potential home buyers entered from the hallway. We decluttered their TV shelf stand to showcase larger accent vases to anchor the space. When there are pets involved, it’s hard not to include them in the staging photos like their cute pet birds in this case. (But they didn’t mind the spotlight.)
Hope everyone has been having a great summer! Wanted to do this DIY plant stand project earlier this summer but life/work has been go go go!
We saved this plant stand from a friend’s curbside a while back. As you can see, it was a 1990’s hunter green, a little dirty, and a little rusty but otherwise in great shape. So we knew we could breathe it back to life again. The notion of “reduce, reuse and recycle” of helping to sustain our environment for the future. It can be used indoors and/or outdoors so we wanted to add a punch of colour to it.
This pretty terra cotta/orange planter bowl caught our eye when Target Canada (we so so miss them!) was closing. Then, we came across the cute bright striped citronella candle. So we got inspiration to spray paint it a soft, calming blue from these two. We knew it would be a fun way to display outdoors through the summer months. We used Krylon Glossy ‘Bahama Sea’ – how fitting for the season!
Now that summer is almost over (sigh!) and ‘back to school’ routine is around the corner, the Fall Mums are out in full force. Annuals out, Fall Mums in. The deep rich orange/red flower pulls the round planter’s colour together for a finished look. What do you think?
Planning another DIY project soon … looking forward to sharing it with you next time!
I know it’s been a while … but as promised I’m back with my final installment of my Interior Design Client’s Master Bedroom.
Our clients embraced the idea of having an accent wall in their bedroom so we went with Benjamin Moore’s Watermelon Red to invoke a bold yet passionate statement as you step into their bedroom. Their surrounding walls are Benjamin Moore’s White Cloud; a nice peaceful balance for them to unwind in at the end of a long day’s work.
Family Photos hang over their bed
We found a large horizontal frame with geometric prints at Winners …. my clients loved the frame but not the prints. But it was a great deal so we decided to remove the three graphical prints and make it their very own by adding family photos in black and white. A mini-DIY project!
As they were moving from Toronto to a small home, they still needed to find a place for all their clothes. We turned to Closets By Design to maximize all the space they could get from their Master Bedroom Closet.
Ahhh … gotta love organization!
Summer officially arrived yesterday – yeah! I’m planning to share a few of my DIY projects over the next two months. Wishing everyone a safe and fun summer! Until next time!
