How To Choose The Right Rug Size

I’m on a mission to fix a major problem and I need your help! Okay, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic – but I am all about providing inspiration and this one will make a big impact.

Looking back over the E-Decor’s I’ve done for clients I’ve seen a few common mistakes. Things that if changed, could make a huge impact on the look of your space.

Go take a look at your family room or living room rug. More specifically look at the size. Chances are it’s too small.

This is one of the most common mistakes I see. But fear not, I’ve got a few ‘rules’ when it comes to rug size that can completely change the look of your room.

Tell me about your rug issues!  Leave a comment below.

How To Paint A Door

I’m reading such a kick ass book right now – Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. Anyone else diving into this treasure? I highly recommend. 

The reason I bring this up is that it’s all about tapping into our creativity. Her philosophy is that creativity doesn’t have to be your job but that everyone is a creative being.

I totally agree. I happen to love the creativity of seeing people lit up with inspiration.

So, I have a little creative project for you. Go look at your front door. How fun is it? Does it look like your neighbours? I’m betting yes.

I’m going to show you how to get a fabulous front door that will use a little creativity, show your personality and make you the door show stopper of the street!

I’d love to hear what colour you’d like to paint your front door? Leave a comment below.

DIY Home Decor For Halloween

Having two little girls means I’ve sort of (almost) given up on trying to decorate seasonally the way I might have done in years past.

If you saw my Christmas tree last year you would be in stitches it was such a sad but lovable little site.

One thing I do like sharing with them is a little craft action. And, as much as Decor is my passion, DIY’ing is not my number 1 skill set.

I thought you might share this same feeling. You want to do a craft, you want it to look nice, you want it to be easy and share it with your family.

Well, here’s a simple little DIY that we are calling “Glam Pumpkins.” You need only 2 supplies and about 10 minutes. You in?

I’d love to hear what your favourite Halloween DIY is. Please comment on my blog as I’d love to hear from you.

Room Decorating Ideas

In 2010, we did a home exchange to Malibu. This trip, well actually the house, shifted everything for me. From the moment I walked in this place just had it going on. It looked finished, cozy, curated and I knew exactly who this family was by their space.

I think that’s what we want – our space to reflect who we really are. We all would love to evoke a certain emotion from people when they come into our space.

There is a bit of a strategy for this, as with most things in life. There are certain elements to consider and add to a room to give it that ‘WOW’ factor.

In today’s video, I share my top 3 tips to creating that curated wow room.

I also have a little cheat sheet for you. Hop on over to my website and you can sign up for my checklist of the 5 things you need to consider in each room including photos to explain.

I’d love to hear what you can implement this week to your room? Please comment on my blog as I’d love to hear from you.

If you’ve been getting my newsletters for a while, you know I used to produce a weekly video and took a hiatus this summer.

Well, I’m BACK and so excited to share new content, format, design ideas and tips.

I’m known as someone who can decorate a space on a budget and truly believe that a mix of high(ish) and low is the best way to go. All of my Design Programs are geared for us ‘regular folk’ get the room of your dreams on a ‘non-designer’ budget.
