How to update a room with a single item and have the biggest impact...


Living room/ Family room:
Placing a new rug, like a cowhide or sisal rug under your existing furniture will take an average room to fabulous! The ying and yang between traditional furniture and a contemporary rug makes for an interesting and edgy space.

New artwork will give a fresh vibe to your space.  You can place one or two large pieces of art for a big impact or create a gallery wall as shown on Meredith Heron's photo. Mix and match frames of various shades, gold with silver, add cream and dark toned frames together to get the current look.

Adding fabric valances and drapery to your kitchen windows is an opportunity to introduce colour, warmth and sound absorption. Go for bold patterns, vibrant colours to make a statement. The yellow and grey Thom Filica fabric in this white kitchen is the starting point for all the citrus colour accents. Yellow and green is always fresh, always current in a kitchen.

Choosing impactful wallpaper or the perfect shade of  paintcolour makes a dramatic difference on the feel of a bathroom. We love this Cohl and Son wallpaper, so playful in this bathroom. If you are not a fan of wallpapering, choosing a new grey, or a dramtic deep tone will erase the aging look of a 10 year old bathroom and will make it delightfully current.
