Goals for 2016

At this time of year (like most of us) I always get inspired to reflect on the past year and look ahead to the new. Although I have to admit I feel that if I don’t accomplish everything in the first month I’m going to lose my momentum. I have to work on that! I did a bit of soul searching and I came up with a vision of how I would like the next year to look professionally and personally.

I also reviewed last years goals and I am quite proud of what I have accomplished and I’m very much looking forward to what the next year has in store with some hard work and dedication. Writing these down and sharing them is really for my own benefit, however I hope it inspires you to write down your goals as well!

To sectional or not to sectional

Sectionals are funny. They are something that a lot of people want but they’re not quite sure why they want it. I love a good sectional but they are certainly not the best solution for the majority of spaces.

Since I always look at function first, my preference is to place them in casual rooms that only family and close friends will be using. They are perfect for movie night!

It’s important to ensure that traffic in and out of the room is not impeded, and you have to be able to get into the sectional easily. If it’s going into a basement, it’s best to measure all the pieces diagonally to make sure they fit down the stairs. It’s not fun to find that out the hard way!

Goals for 2015

I am sitting here, recovering from eating way too many cookies, listening to the boys playing nicely together (this is a treat!) and thinking about what my goals are for this new year. I’ve had some time to reflect on where I want to go professionally and personally and I would like to put it in writing to keep me on track. I’m a huge believer in putting things out into the universe – so here it goes!

10 great reasons to hire a decorator!

With the slight chill in the air this morning I feel like fall is just around the corner. Fall is my absolute favourite season! I love having the windows open to let the fresh air in, not to mention all the comfort food. Stews and curries here I come! I find I always want to nest this time of year too and start thinking of all the projects I want to get done. If you get the same feeling, do me a big favour and ask yourself this question: Do I need to hire a decorator?

I think this is a question everyone should ask when starting a project in their home, whether it be large or small. We all get overwhelmed with all the choices out there and a decorator helps you tie everything together. We can help you invest wisely in your space and work out a plan of action on where to start.

One of the biggest myths about decorating is that a decorator will cost more money than if you did it on your own. Decorators in truth can help save you money in the long run. There are so many times where I’ve been called into a client’s home and they have just purchased furniture that is much too large for the space, or it simply doesn’t work with the style of their house. Now they are stuck with trying to make it work, but eventually they end up replacing it sooner than they would have otherwise.
