I love furniture shopping for clients, especially in Toronto. Whether you are looking for Italian imports or trying to minimize your carbon footprint (highly recommended) by keep your selection to local manufacturers there is no shortage of great stores and boutiques. Below are a few images I took while shopping for one of my residential clients. Almost all of these furniture pieces are manufactured in Canada (most in Montreal). The price points on these are great and if you are comfortable with a floor model you can almost always get a deal (provided they are willing to part with it).
There is no denying Canadian winters can be long and cold so in an effort to embrace the season today’s design notebook is a collection of warm.
A few simple things can update your apartment or home and make you look forward to colder temps. Wool shag rugs to keep your toes warm, faux fur throws to wrap-up in, luxury velvet drapes to block out drafts, and red wine to give you the illusion of all of the above.
Might as well embrace it…. it’s just around the corner!
Flip through your photo album and get inspired.
The above colour palette was inspired by a photo I took in Vancouver. These colours would be perfect applied to the exterior of your home. If you have a image you love and need help pulling from it and refining your paint swatches feel free to email it it to Delo loves design for paint specifications and great design tips.
