Changing Seasons

It’s finally starting to feel like fall in Vancouver! This usually means pumpkin spice lattes and more time inside. What many people forget to do this time of year, is to spice up their home decor. So, we thought we would put together a few tips on how to spruce up your living space for fall, without any major renovations!

1) Autumn inspired centrepieces: Bring some of the outdoors in through fall-themed decorations. Simply adding an arrangement of pinecones and maple leafs paired with a vanilla scented candle can change the mood of a room.

2) Change it up: Give your furniture a break and try some new arrangements. Play around with switching paintings, chairs, and the furnishings throughout your home to find the perfect fit for the coming months.

3) Pillow coverings: Those throw pillows you love? They may be keeping your home stuck in summer. An easy fix to change the colours and tones in your home, new pillow coverings. Don’t worry, we don’t mean everything should turn orange. Pastels, coppers, and greys do a fantastic job of creating a fresh autumn vibe.

If you wouldn’t wear the same outfit all year round, why should your house be any different? Looking for more inspiration, stop by and visit us!

Design Inspiration

As you may know, we’re taking part in this year’s Vancouver Home and Design Show, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! What’s exciting about preparing for a show, is that we get to create a project that is all about us. Don’t get me wrong, we love helping others make their dream projects come true, but sometimes it’s fun to do it all for yourself.

The other day, we we’re perusing the Internet for a little design inspiration. Now we don’t want to give away too much before the big event, but it’s safe to say our booth is going to look fantastic. Our team has been working non-stop on ideas that will really showcase how much can be done with custom furniture. Sometimes, finding inspiration for a project can be half the fun!

All About Upholstery!

Last night we were joined by guests and upholstery specialist Steven Rystephanuk for our All About Upholstery seminar. With nearly 15 years of experience, Steve was able to advice guests on the different styles of tufting, picking the perfect fabric, and the materials used for custom upholstery.

A beautiful example of some of Steve’s work. 

Guests included local designers and design enthusiasts. Near the end of the seminar, guests were invited to ask Steve and Lison for advice on their custom furniture projects. Soon, Lison will be announcing her own line of custom furniture, but for now that is still under wraps!

We had a fantastic evening and we’re already looking forward to our next event, a Feng Shui Seminar with a local expert. Hope to see you there!
