Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited to invite you in to take a peek at the cozy little space that I designed for my favourite pup, Winston and I, called home. Although fashion is my first love, I am also very passionate about home décor and interior design.
I have relocated at least five times within the past eight years, and one of the most exciting things about moving is having the opportunity to transform a new space into a place you can call home. I know some of you probably cringe at the thought of moving, but I enjoy it! I knew that I wanted to create a space that was a reflection of my style. Years ago I probably couldn’t tell you what my decor preferences were, but now I am enamored with Art Deco and old Hollywood glam. Even though my place is a bit on the tiny side, it is still bright and airy and the space turned out cohesive and stylish. I enjoy mixing pieces with high and low price points, and the only rule of thumb that I like to follow when creating a space is to create something elegant that you will love for years to come.
The living room is my favourite space in my condo. I spend most of my time entertaining and laughing with friends and family in this room. The yellow and grey chevron pillows were my inspiration for the room and colour scheme. If you ever feel overwhelmed designing a space, use an accent piece, i.e. a pillow, rug or even a beautiful painting as a starting point of inspiration for the room, and you will be on your way to achieving the beautiful space of your dreams.
Don’t be afraid of a few DIY projects when decorating a new space. Reinventing the old like I did with my gold coral table lamps is so chic. You’d be surprised at what a can of paint, and a new pair of black lamp shades can accomplish- gilded perfection!
In today’s market, so many pieces are mass produced. To stay unique, I often search for special pieces that no one else has and tend to shop at boutique furniture stores. Black Rooster Decor on Queen Street is one of my favourite furniture stores in Toronto. I had success finding fabulous pieces for my condo and highly suggest going to check out this gorgeous store.
I am beyond ecstatic with the results of my new home, and I hope that my space will inspire your next décor project. Enjoy!
