Living Room – Get the Look for Less

Thank-you for the great response to “Get the Look.” I’m so happy it inspired you!

Decor With Love TV will be back, but taking a little break to come up with great new content. I have some ideas brewing on how I can provide more value to you!

In the meantime, I will still be popping in your Inbox and feel free to reach out with any questions.

So today’s Get Your Look is a fun and whimsical living room. I decorated this space a couple years, it was featured in Style At Home Magazine, and it’s still one of my personal favourites.

Let’s break it down (click on links for  similar items):

The Couch: I chose a chaise for this room. This gives more seating and also a great place to rest.

The Rug: This similar rug has the colours of the room with subtle hits of grey, cream and blue.

The Chairs: A personal favourite. These velvet beauties really frame the room. I think with occasional chairs you can really make a statement.

Coffee Table: We chose a functional white washed wood coffee table. I believe all spaces should have a hit of wood in them.

Pillows: Here is where we get to have fun. A pop of colour makes such a bold and fun statement.

Gallery Wall: This one was from a trip to Homesense. The reason it works is I kept it to one colour- black. I also added some art elements like the letters and kept each picture about 2-3 inches apart.

Side Tables: I’m partial to gold. As with every room needing wood, I think every room needs some gold.

Decor with love,

Style at Home Bedroom – Get the Look for Less

Style at Home Bedroom – Get the Look for Less

I thought I’d try something a bit different this week.

Before I “officially” started in design one of my favourite things to do was find inspiration.

And one of my favourite ways to do this was with blogs/websites that shared their journey and then gave me the tools to implement ideas.

A condo I decorated was featured in Style At Home Magazine for their current July issue. I’m so grateful and excited with the inspiration it seems to be providing and the requests of where I got certain items etc.

So I’ve to created a little “Get The Look” with info on sources, some suggestions and an inspiration board.

We are going to start with the bedroom and how to ‘get the look.’ 

The Bedroom in Style At Home:

Style at Home, July 2016

Let’s break it down:

The Bed: 

I love an upholstered headboard. If you are looking to add softness to a room this is the way to do it. The bed should be your focal point to the room. We had a custom bed made for this project but I provided an inspiration and source below.

Bedding:

I can’t get enough of white bedding. Don’t be scared. It can be washed. It creates a serene, calm look and you can change up the decor around it so easily. This bedding was from Homesense but I provided another option in the link below.

Pillows:

Many men will be happy to hear me say I’m not a big fan of 100 throw pillows on a bed. I actually like to keep it simple to about  3 pillows.

Side tables:

These one’s have a sort of mid-century vibe and are from Westelm. What I like about this is that it adds a bit of masculine lines to balance out other feminine items.

Lamps:

This is where you can show your personality. I chose something sculptural. I like that it adds a different shape and element to the room.

Here’s a little Inspiration Board with similar items and links below. Have fun…xo

Organizing Your Home: Secrets to Stylishly Living Clutter Free – Part 3

Organizing Your Home: Secrets to Stylishly Living Clutter Free – Part 3

Do some weeks feel like it was a month rolled into 7 days?

That’s how last week felt. I’m always shifting from work mode, to mom mode, to creative mode etc but sometimes more than others.

And, I find when my creative life is feeling good the rest of it flows.

One thing I’m learning about creativity is that the more I simplify, the more creative I become. And I mean that in all areas of my life.

Today’s video is the last in the 3 Part Series of Stylishly Decluttering. I’ve also shared some of my favourite items in the links below…

Over the next month, I am going to be diving in deep with my group of “Secrets to Style” members. I also have some new ideas about content and direction for this weekly newsletter that feels really aligned with who I am and how I can provide value.

So, you will still see me popping in your inbox but it will be a little less for now and stay tuned for some changes.

In the meantime, if you have anything you’d like to see about design, styling, business etc, let me know by leaving me a comment….

Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next week!
