    Get Your Bottles in A Row

    Just like designing your home, it is important to have an organized bar cart. Try grouping the different sections or aspects of the bar cart together, to create a cohesive look. A little liquor here, a little glasses there, and you are good to go.

    Shake it Up

    Don’t be afraid to mix things up a little and have some fun with your cart. Coloured glasses, fun bar tools or are not only a conversation starter, but they make things fun and unique.

    Create Your Signature Cart

    Don’t be afraid to dress up your bar cart a bit. The difference between a bar cart and a rocking bar cart is taking that extra effort in adding something different to give it that stylish look. Adding a floral to your bar cart can give some life to your cart. You can also add some books or other décor items to mix things up and add that extra bit of style that will make your bar cart stand out!

    Adding Personality to Your Powder Room

    Adding Personality to Your Powder Room

    Powder room are generally one of the smaller rooms in our home, but that doesn’t mean it can’t pack a punch. Try these tips on how to add personality to your powder:

    Dress It Up

    Mirrors are great at creating the illusion of a larger space. Using an oversized or wall-to-wall mirror opens up your space and gives it a larger feel. Your powder room is a feature, so you can also have fun with your mirror and give your space some character. Round, square, wood or chrome, there are so many mirrors to choose from!

    Have Some Fun With It

    Powder rooms are one of the rooms in your house where you can go a little wild and have some fun with it. Powder rooms can be quirky and different then the rest of your house, but you can still get away with it. Try wrapping your powder in a fun wallpaper, or playing with patterns or different materials or even playing with colour in your vanity. Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to give your powder a bit of character.

    Mix it Up

    Most often you see powder rooms in wallpaper, but that is definitely not the only option. Try using tile as the feature. You can use a funky tile to add some pop to your powder, or just try using a different installation technique to add interest without breaking the bank. Having the extra tile also means easy clean up if you have kids or if your powder sees a lot of wear and tear. One of our personal favourites is adding shiplap to a powder. It is a clean look and easy to achieve!

    Put on The Final Touches

    The interesting thing about your powder room is that it kind of stands apart from the rest of your house, so that means you can do something a bit different in your powder room and get away with it. So spend that little bit extra in some nice hardware or a unique light fixture. Lighting and hardware are the two things that can set your powder room apart. There are so many cool light fixtures out there – whether you use sconces or an interesting pendant, add that bit of styles to put your powder room.

    Tips for Styling Open Kitchen Shelving

    Tips for Styling Open Kitchen Shelving

    Open shelving in the kitchen has been popular for a couple years now and although it may look great looking through pinterest photos, it is sometimes harder to achieve in real life. That being said, we have put some tips together to help you get that stylish open shelving look you were going for:

    Repetition

    The biggest mistake in styling open shelving, is looking overly cluttered. The trick in avoiding a cluttered mess is repetition. Repeating elements in either finish or in the items themselves helps narrow down the amount of items on your shelves and gives a more uniform, less cluttered look. Try pulling the color of your cabinets into items on your shelves or using clear glass to create a minimal look.

    Vary Your Heights

    Have you ever seen those displays where it row after row of the same thing? Talk about boring! Your shelves are a feature, so make it that way by varying the heights of your items and adding some interest. You can also layer dishes and other items to add depth to your shelves and give it that extra umph!

    Incorporate Art & Unique Pieces

    Let’s be honest, open shelves are mainly for aesthetic reasons. So create that feature by changing things up and adding art pieces or other interesting pieces to showcase and create an interesting display. Adding art also helps with layering and adds an extra dimension to your shelves.

    Balance the Essentials

    Although we love the open shelf look, open shelving is not always the most practical thing in your kitchen. The trick is balancing useful vs. aesthetic. While you may not want to display your mismatched and chipped dishes, here are some items that are great to include in your open shelving display without sacrificing the look: cookbooks, spices, dishes. That being said, you have to remember not to overdo it. Maintain a decluttered look but only putting out your favourites and your most used, everyday items, while putting your less-used items away from prying eyes.

    How to Style a Bedside Table

    Whether you are just freshening up your bedroom or if you are just moving in, it is easy to style or re-style your bedside table. These tables get a lot of love, so you might as well do it right. Here are some tips to help you!

    Almost all nightstands have the same décor components – books, lamps, floral and personal accessories – the difference however, is how you style it and how your personality comes out in that styling. And although the size and design of your nightstand may influence your look, the true design comes in how you play with those components and make it your own! Let’s take a moment and look through some of the different styles that suit you and your style: 

    Simple & Clean

    Pretty straight-forward with this one. As they say, “less is more”. Keep your nightstand looking fresh with just the bare minimums – try using just a single table lamp or the few items some clean books and a floral. Keep your personal items in drawers, this look is all about the clean lines.

    The Family Man

    Your bedroom is the place you retire to, to wind down and to go to sleep, so why not fill your head with the ones you love the most? Adding photo frames to your nightstand is a great way to cherish those memories and keep them close. If this is the route for you, we recommend trying to coordinate your photos, so they still look classy on your nightstand. Black and whites are our favourites!

    Down to Earth

    Want your bedroom to give that cozy comfortable look? This look is super easy to achieve by adding soft greens and warm wood tones. Try layering textures and muted colours to add dimension and a homey-ness to this style.

    The Layered Effect

    The layered effect is very popular right now and we can see why! Mixing textures, tones and different levels of interest creates a capturing display in the bedroom. The main thing that separates this style is incorporating art into the bedside table and creating small vignettes of curiosity, instead of focusing on one whole.

    Chic & Classy

    This look is similar to the simple and clean look in many ways. To achieve this look you will want to keep most of your personals out of sight, with only a few statement pieces. This look doesn’t have to be expensive to achieve, a few simple books and a nice lamp with a couple unique accessories and you have this look down-pat! Keep in mind that with this look, it is generally more of your neutral colours. Sticking to your blacks, golds, greys and whites are the safest bet with a small pop of colour.

    Well, I hope you enjoyed our tips in how to style your bedside table. Your bedroom is a place where you spend a lot of your time, so make it a place that suits you. So wake up, get to work and put your dreams into action!

    4 Office Looks We Love

    4 Office Looks We Love

    Whether you work from home or just use it on an occasional space, an office is a personal space where you create ideas. That’s why it is important to have an office that fits you. Here are some of the office looks we are loving!

    Stylish Function

    We understand that you can’t always dedicate an entire room for a private office, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the idea of a personal workspace. Whether it is a furniture piece or a built-in unit, you can easily create a useable office space by having a writing surface and stacking shelves above - building up instead of out to create adequate storage and working space.

    Up Front and Center

    There is nothing more dramatic than a freestanding desk. It may be a bit harder to wire, but we love the look! This iconic look is a showstopper for your home that is perfect if your office is in an area that people see often. But remember to keep in mind wires and how you will be connecting any electronic devices. No need to ruin the look with cords.

    Creative Spaces

    Offices don’t always have to be for the traditional workspace. We love turning offices into craft or hobby spaces where you can get the creative juices flowing. Your space should suit you and your needs. We loved how these offices have space to create in and use interesting ways to display hobbies and supplies.

    Fit to a ‘T’:

    Not all offices are simple and clean, especially if you do a lot of paperwork or work full-time from home. For times like these, it is great to have built-ins. Built-ins are not only made to suit you and your requirements, but it will keep things organized and hide all the things we don’t want people to see on a regular basis.

    Whatever your space and whatever your budget, you can easily create an office space that fits you and your family. So get crackin’ there is work to be done!
