IDS 2013

I attended the interior design show this past weekend in Toronto.  It was fantastic and always so inspiring.   Here are some images of what I found at the show!  hope your insipred to use some of the items to create YOUR HAVEN and if  you need help, please contact me!

What an incredible tub from WET TUB out of Montreal!

Cocoon Interiors from Oakville had in  my opinion the most beautiful booth!  can't wait to hit the store and do some shopping!!  Love the pop of Fushia & Tangerine... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

Another highlight for me was listening to Christiane Lemieux from Dwell Studio  talk about how she started in the interior design industry (or rather how she stumbled into it!) she was so insperational and great to listen too, a true Canadian!  The Bay is now carrying some of her line so check it out!!!

Ikea's showroom was another WOW!

Love the shower door hardware! incredible in polished nickle by Tomlin Group
what a Tub!!!

Pack up the decorations ... now what does that room look like..

Christmas has come and gone and now its time to pack up the decorations and start re-decorating and rediscovering your new haven... well, at least that is what happens to me at this time of year....

The immediate rooms of contention for me are... The Dinning Room, Family Room and the Hall Way, all have until this Monday morning been decorated with reindeer's, frosted trees, garland and wreaths; all things I love but now need to change and refresh!

This is a great opportunity to add a new colour with decor pieces,  add new art work,  throw cushions and frames or a new rug...  - I think those are the items I will focus on.  Check back with me to see what changes were made to these spaces.

Bedroom Transformation.....

Happy New Year to all my readers and thank you so much for your continued support!

In my opinion there is nothing like starting the new year off in a NEW Space! 

I wanted to share with you a picture of my clients bedroom Transformation.   I worked on their bedroom retreat as well as their daughters room.  I had the furniture resprayed (if you need refinishing check out AGR POLYESTER in Vaughn, they are by far the BEST finishing company in the city). 

We also used some great items from Indigo/Chapters (their gifting department has come a long way and its so inspirational, love shopping there!).  We also found some great items at the Bay & Home Outfitters (I have a sweet spot for HBC - always a great go to for me and my clients!).  Zilli Home and ELTE were also some of the honourable mentions for these 2 bedrooms!.

I hope your inspired to transform your bedroom.  If you need any help with your space please email me at urhaven@rogers.com
