Edmonton Interior Decorator | Colour Trend | Plum & Gold

"How do I know what colours go together?"

I hear this question a lot. Aside from giving an impromptu lesson in colour theory, I often tell my clients to look to nature. If it exists in harmony naturally, it will surely look great in your home.

Personally, I have a huge colour crush on plum and gold (or green). It's so vibrant, rich and stimulating!

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Let's Shop | West Edmonton Mall Target

I recently went on a shopping safari to Target in West Edmonton Mall. I must confess, I've never shopped in a Target south of the border before, so I had nothing to compare it to. However, a few of my friends had, and they said our Target just didn't measure up.

Here's a little of what I encountered during my first visit to the Canadian Target:

Regardless of my friends' lackluster reviews, I was pleased with my first foray to Tar-zhay! Naturally, I was most inclined to check out the home decor and accessories. I was tickled to find collections by the beloved Nate Berkus -- though everything seem well picked through already. Target also had a large collection of colourful bedding and sheets. They even offered organic cotton sheets at really reasonable prices.

Despite the obvious comparisons to Walmart and Zellers, I still think Target is a slight cut above the two. I'll definitely be back to pick up some pillows and mirrors. With up to date selections, and affordable prices, they have great offerings for home decorating and home staging.

Have you been yet -- what did you think of their selections?

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Get the Look for Less | All Hale the Navy

You see an amazing photo in a decorating magazine and you ask yourself, "How can I get that look? And how can I get it for less?"

Here's the inspiration: a masculine, eclectic inspired living room. I'd estimate the original cost at $9695. That's quite a big chunk of change if you're redecorating an entire house.

The inspiration

Here's how I got the look for MUCH less!
While the items I selected are not identical replicas, overall it would still create the same masculine, eclectic look. My shopping around allowed me to create the look for nearly $6000 LESS!

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Get The Look | Life is But a Dream

You see an amazing photo in a decorating magazine and you ask yourself, "How can I get that look? And how can I get it for less?"

Here's the inspiration: a chic, Hollywood Regency inspired gray and white master bedroom. I'd estimate the cost at $4500. Which, is not BAD for a master bedroom, but who wouldn't want to get the look for less??

However, here's how I got the look for less than 1/2 price!
