What does your outdoor retreat look like?

By Design & Decorate
It’s almost time to get outdoors!  Time to transition from our indoor sanctuaries to our outdoor havens to relax, suntan, or entertain. Whether you have a small or large patio, all you need is a cozy atmosphere to create a comfortable living space. A corner sectional or a small bistro set works perfectly to create an intimate hangout. Cozy Sitting Areas As we transition from indoor to outdoor, there shouldn’t be a significant difference in style between the two. As we design the interior of your home, the outside should reflect a similar style and feeling, to create a beautiful...

New Year . New Style

By Design, Design & Decorate

As we ring in the New Year, it is common to look back over the previous year and think about the wonderful memories we have created with the ones we love. Often times, we make these memories during the most inconspicuous times. Perhaps an inside joke was conceived while sitting around playing board games, or a funny photograph taken while sipping cocktails at the bar.

Fall Trends

By Design, Design & Decorate
Warmth, Organic and Natural Elements Hello Fall! As summer comes to an end, the cooler weather slowly approaches. Warm earth tones are beginning to be seen not just in home decor but in my wardrobe! Recently we visited High Point & the Toronto gift show and noticed nature inspired design elements becoming more popular than ever. Colour tones consist of deep reds, oranges, mustard yellows, avocado greens and gold tones. Earth tones are beautiful for fall, and will set the mood for a very cozy environment.     "GET YOUR BRASS ON" Mixing metals is a general rule we live by,...

Let’s Get Organized…

By Design, Design & Decorate
GET ORGANIZED WITH THE GRAVITY WALL SYSTEM It's that month... January, the month of resolutions: eat healthier, exercise more, and to get organized! As we store the tree and holiday decorations away for next year, we start to declutter the house and get the urge to re-decorate & organize our living spaces, offices, libraries and most importantly our CLOSETS! When it comes to designing closets, this is may be frustrating to achieve that clean European look. Many closet systems today rely on wall-hanging hardware systems, which doesn't work so well with  Canadian & American plaster or drywall. Finally we have the solution to those problems... Huppe...

Autumn Styling

By Design, Design & Decorate No Comments

As summer fades out and we glide into autumn, it’s time to transform your home to capture the essence of the season by adding colour, warmth and cosiness inspired by nature. Whether it’s the colours of the changing leaves, the deep browns and rust colours, or the warmness of a roaring fireplace, autumn is a cherished time of the year. A time to relish the crisp, cool weather this time of year brings and the abundance of nature-derived accents.

Autumn is associated with twigs, pomegranates, pumpkins, nuts, gourds and the sweet smell of vanilla and cinnamon candles, colourful leaves on the ground being blown around lazily by cool winds and soft rainy days and crisp clear nights. Adorn the interior of your home with a few simple decorations and accessories in earth colours to reflect an outdoor setting that is worthy of a feature in a national home decor magazine! Now is the perfect time to add a few festive touches to cozy up your space this season.

Whether it’s a rustic or elegant design you are aiming for, dress your home with the season’s harvest for a cozy interior. If you have wall-art with autumn scenery, hang them on your walls. Make a table centrepiece that includes candles and cinnamon sticks. Gather some branches and place them in a Larvik Vase Rose Gold vase. Hang a warm and cozy blanket on your favourite sofa for a protected and delightful feeling. If you have a fireplace, have a twig basket filled with logs waiting to crackle. Arrange a wrought iron candelabra and some seasonal fruit such as pears and apples or pinecones on the mantel. On the thresholds and windows you can put a few small pumpkins in different shapes and sizes.
