Layered for Less

The Layered look is my favourite. A mix of styles and a layering of texture and memories are what makes rooms personal and in my opinion successful.  I often I see people wheeling around home stores with a cart FULL of items that appear to be for the same room.  This approach is rarely successful […]

Puppy Love

If you know me, you know that K-man is the center of my universe. We don’t have kids so he’s everything…and I mean everything to my husband and I!  It doesn’t hurt that he’s a handsome devil too.                   So now that you’ve seen what a cutie […]

Week 1 – Inspiration & Intention

Rugs on Time

On time is a big thing for me…I like to be on time (even early) and I certainly appreciate it from others. So when I recently had clients order their large Persian rug from Rugs On Time I crossed my fingers and toes. It worked! These folks have great (Canadian) Pricing, free shipping and free […]

Dropbox App

My most used App for design projects last year…and definitely this year is Dropbox!!  As I move around from job sites and projects I am always eager to document each step of the way in photos.  I simply use my iPhone to take pictures when I’m on the go and drop my pics into Dropbox […]

Bet on Blue

                        Choosing a rug for a modern country interior is so fun.. You can go literal country and incorporate some red and green but for the house I’m shopping for I think Blue is the Best Bet.  These rugs are from the Dash and […]
