Little touches that make a huge difference

Decorating a small space isn’t actually that different than decorating a large one: It just requires a bit of ingenuity and understanding what works in the space and what doesn’t. While your focus will be different when you’re working with less square footage, the basic rules of design are very much the same. I’ve taken this challenge to task with a recent property development I’m working on in conjunction with Dunpar Homes – the Kingsway Village Square. This luxury building offers upscale condominium living in a carefully-crafted boutique rental residence, and as creative designer, it’s my j ..read more

To say white kitchens are popular is a bit of an understatement. Over the years, we have seen that trends are moving away from whites with the rise of colourful cabinetry and appliances, or with the return of warm wood tones. In the end white cabinets are still a sought-after mainstay. The bright, fresh look and feel of white kitchen cabinetry never really looses its appeal, and for many is the goal for their kitchen renovation. Kitchens are the heart of the home and really should reflect your own personal style and way of living. White cabinets are always timeless, and an easy commitment wit ..read more

Over the last several years, design has had an ever-increasing movement towards environmentally friendly materials, sustainability, and energy efficiency. We’ve all been doing our part to aid the environment, knowing full well changes were needed on many levels. Our homes are our private spaces, reflections of ourselves, our family, our lifestyles; but recently they have become our sole spaces for living. The current global health crisis has thrown us all into a different way of living.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many companies have implemented mandatory work-from-home policies. If we are still reducing new cases and trying to limit community spread, these new rules may exist for a long while before any of us return to a commute to the office. That means a lot of us are experiencing a pretty unique challenge: Working from home for the first time, full-time. Even if you worked from home intermittently in the past, this could feel entirely different because of how significant (and sudden) the change is. Not only are we trying to balance our nine to five workdays, we also ..read more

With our harsh long winters, it’s no surprise that Canadians are dying to get into the back yard come spring. Which is why we’re spending more and more on making that small patch of real estate into a heavenly oasis. Long gone are the white plastic chairs circling like wagons around a plexiglass table, and in their place are fire pits and heaters, deep-seated sectional sofas, teak dining tables and chairs, and lights, lots of lights. All of this exponentially increases the time you spend outdoors listening to the birds, or the burble of a water feature, watching the sun set, and connecting wit ..read more

As with the new season fashion trends, we also see emerging home decor trends each season that tempt us to update our homes. While trends do come and go, there are subtle ways you can switch up your existing space so it feels fresh and new for this coming year. Here are some of my favourite suggestions: Go monochrome Monochromatic shouldn’t be restricted to just pale shades (such as, taupe, grey, or white). Colours such as aubergine, cobalt blue, even kelly greens can also go monochrome in a way that’s full of energy and personality, while remaining very elegant. Mix and match What goes aroun ..read more
