How to Use Wall Art in Your Home

How to Use Wall Art in Your Home


Do you ever walk into a room and feel there is something missing? Sometimes, even when you have the most beautiful furniture, you need to add some accent touches to make a room feel finished and beautiful.

A great and easy way to complete a space is by using wall art. Artwork can add more uniqueness and dimension to an empty wall, with a splash of colour creatively placed in the space. A lot of the time, furniture can be quite neutral in tone, but adding a pop of colour can really make all the difference!

Above is an example of how to complete a room using wall art, as displayed in our showroom. As you can see, by adding that pop of creative colour in the right place, even the smaller accessories below better complement the space, making it feel more complete, where everything flows wonderfully together!

The not so January Blues

 

January is a new month, a new year, and a new decade.  It is also the month many refer to as the “January Blues.”

Although there is most definitely a lack of sunshine during this month when people feel the blues, there is another way of looking at this colour.

Blue represents both the colours of the sky and the sea.  From the calm and serene Baby blue to the dynamic, dramatic and exhilarating blue through the to the classic blue.  Interior decor trends have seen grey as a popular color for quite some time. In 2020 you will be seeing more of the neutral beige, also know as Champagne. Just like grey, champagne is a great neutral and can be accessorized with all shades of Blue.

Coincidentally, the Toronto Blue Jays just unveiled their new uniforms in the upcoming season. In an ode to their original uniforms from the 1970’s, Toronto’s new jerseys will feature a light blue, which the organization calls the “New Blue”

If you love the feeling that the color blue gives you, try incorporating the many shades in your home interiors.  For that reason, you will love the ambiance of the room.

Blue seems to be trending everywhere, from nature to feelings and even uniforms. Now it’s your turn to embrace Blue!

Furniture Technology

We are truly living in a different era! Technology has become so important in our lives that even our furniture has to have it. This is the way it should be. The same way we have to put up with the changes, we need to learn how to prepare our homes and our furniture so that they help us thrive in the moment that we are living right now. Whether you have Alexa or Google Home, it doesn’t matter. The key is to be up to date with what it is going on. When you renovate and design your house, you have to take in consideration what is going on with the current technology. Even the furniture is designed like this. You have beds, night stands, end tables, etc with a USB ports, so that you can charge your devices at your convenience. When it comes to power recliners, they not only recline but you can control the lumbar and the head rest with the touch of a button. This is it! Whether you like it or not, technology is here to stay. So you will have to take it and incorporate it into your everyday life sooner or later. Might as well be now!

Stay Cozy For The Long Run

The winter months are long and the daylight is much too short.

Most of the day we spend inside, curling up on the sofa with a book or watching a movie with the family, or on your own.

Being inside is longing for a cozy atmosphere with some bright and warm colors.

No need to make major changes.

You can achieve that cozy feeling with some accents, like  a couple of new toss pillows or a bright new rug.

Maybe change some floor lighting by changing the shade to bright white or adding a new painting with gold or red accents.

Winter is not going to stay forever and sometimes it is comforting to be inside glancing around into a fresh and somewhat new room.

Whatever change you do, it is for the best.

Enjoy the season!

IMG TV Room

 

An IMG chair would be a perfect fit in the TV room where you can sit back and watch your shows or just read a book and relax. The chair reclines and swivels which makes it so easy to control and enjoy.

Contrast Lighting

Contrast is an important design concept. Contrast adds interest to a space. By incorporating darker accents into the design, you can create a striking and beautiful room. White walls and a light grey sofa can be a neutral backdrop to a room so that the darker pieces can make a statement.

Contrast can add drama to an otherwise boring room. A popular decorating trend is having a light colored wall to act as a perfect canvas for furniture. If everything in the room is a light colour, then the eye has nowhere to stop and rest. A dark pillow or ottoman will pop in a light space.

During the month of December it gets dark very early. It is also the month when holidays are celebrated. Both Hanukkah and Christmas are imbued with the theme of light. Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, and candles are lit for eight days using a Hanukkia. Christmas trees are decorated with strings of lights both inside and outside the house. I hope your living room is filled with lots of light and happiness!

Happy holidays!

Now is the time to make your home festive and inviting for family and friends.

No big changes are required to bring the spirit of the festivities to your home.

Maybe a new carpet with the colors of the season will brighten the day.

Colours vary, from green, red and gold or silver, to blue or any color you like.

A crispy white runner on the dining table will feel fresh and inviting.

Maybe a bright gold throw on the sofa will please your eye.

The possibilities are endless.
