Quick living room freshen up

If you think of all the decorating shows one enjoys watching on tv, they are more about the process of design than the end product. A process that is made pleasurable and entertaining to watch and participate. You can always grab a magazine or browse the internet, in order to see the end result, you don’t need to watch a show. But you watch it because you enjoy the excitement of transformation.

Shopping season, getting the essentials and the ones you don’t need

When I shop for clients I never feel distracted. It is completely different when the buying becomes a part of a project. Professional buying applies a filter to browsing that confidently edits, reshuffles and combines the finds with all the other elements of the design, such as room wall colours, flooring finish lights and so forth, that I do not have with me when shopping.

Half birthdays – Set the perfect table!

When I first thought of celebrating a half birthday for my daughter I thought I’m quite unique. She absolutely loved the idea and since, we have a little ritual.

Milan inspired

We’re in for flamboyant interiors with vibrant brushstrokes inspired by the colour and pattern of the 2018 Milan Fashion Week.

Al Fresco Modern Table Decor

Aaaa-almost smelling the summer…a day here, a day there, some would say you feel it in your bones, the non-gradual, rather chaotic back and forth seasonal change that is so typical in Ontario: one day sleeveless, one day parka. The teaser of summer days makes you think of .. Funky placemats The round mats from…

Saying goodbye to winter

As we say goodby to winter, here is one of my favourite Christmas decorated houses of this season.

Bold colour combos in furniture

What I love about the trips around town is that no matter what you’re looking for in stores, you always find some unexpected pieces. Like these beautiful Hermes orange bar stools from Barrymore. The brass accents give them just a slight sofistication.

The life of a hanger

Hangers either get noticed, or disappear under their load. They proudly decorate the surface they are on, or grip their load just right to make that coat flow down in perfect folds. Often at the entrance, they greet you when you come in, and help you with your guest’s attire. They stand tall and don’t bend…

Artsy Holiday Table Settings

Go artistic this season and decorate your table with patterns and colours!Beautiful centerpieces can play off smaller decor, even patterned napkins and colour in any form. Pairing plates with same colours but different designs can make a great composition. If you like decorating, think about making the hors d’oeuvres part of the display. A one-colour…

Fabulous places for books

I can safely say that books are not on their way out. Not until reading is out all-together. The second we are able to assimilate information, and get the pleasure of a good novel from a different form then yes, books will eventually go. As the electronic age is getting firmly established reading gets however…

Artistic Furniture

Out of the box in manufacturing is hard to do. A chair if you can’t sit on it, is it still a chair? I would say ..no Jinil Park is the author of sketched-like furniture. How great is this bed! or these tables inspired by galloping horses.
