Option 1 Marble looking quartz with off-white cabinets and a walnut island with light floors (rift white oak), here are some inspiration pics.

    When Terreeia and I were in Toronto for my Specify Colour with Confidence™ Event in May, we had dinner with a good friend. We were talking about the extremely hot real estate market in Toronto (and Vancouver). In the last two weeks for example, homes in Toronto are selling for up to a million dollars OVER the asking price with bidding wars everywhere. Terreeia’s friend had her condo up for sale in

    Roses from Brooke’s garden to greet us in the guest house Many of us in blogland followed Brooke and Steve Giannetti when they built their dream home in Ojai, California and moved from their previous house in Santa Monica. They have lived there now for three years since it was finished, but in the Spring of 2014, Brooke posted photos of her gardens here, only one year after it was installed.

    Shari and her husband couldn’t agree on a ‘colour’ when they went shopping for a new sofa, so they chose charcoal. The reason why they couldn’t agree on a colour, is because choosing a sofa BEFORE the carpet, artwork or throw pillows is like picking all the paint colours for your house BEFORE you buy a stick of furniture. If you don’t have an inspiration starting point, then it’s much harder

    Lately I have been getting many emails from readers asking questions like this: Maria, what comes next??? If we are nearing the end of the gray and white “fresh” trend. What’s next!!??? I’m starting the process of updating a 1990 normal sized (1800sf) house – nothing touched since built in 1994.  I don’t want to spend all this money and end up with a dated house in a year. Thanks!!!

    My neighbour Shari and her husband Josh renovated their kitchen this past Spring.  They chose someone who came highly referred by their friends. He had installed two kitchens for them and they were beautiful. This is the note I received from Shari: “We went to Home Depot and a few other kitchen stores but decided to go with him since we saw his work in our friends home. We paid the first half of what was owing for the completed... Continue Reading →

    {source} In January and February we’re unusually busy in our eDesign department working on New Build packages because this is the time of year when planning begins for renovations or new builds. If you’re planning a new build, you should be aware that colour decisions for the exterior need to be made FIRST. So don’t wait until the last minute (which often happens). Many people think “I got this” but then when it comes down to the wire and the builder... Continue Reading →

    This is the view from their home. My lovely clients Crystal and Rob built their home almost 10 years ago when the Tuscan brown trend was going strong. Five years ago, they bought the property next door and built a summer house which I decorated for them. Suddenly, they loved being in that space more than their own house! And since this is their forever house (because of the stunning view), they decided to update to a much more classic... Continue Reading →

    This was the house Kelly and her Husband Mike bought 2 1/2 years ago (above). Renovating the inside of the house was a much higher priority than painting the exterior so when they sold the house this Spring, it remained this colour combination. But inside the house experienced quite the transformation! Today I want to talk to you about when it’s appropriate to use a wide angled lens if you’re a professional getting professional photos of your work taken (almost... Continue Reading →
