Edmonton Interior Decorator | Top 5 DIY Projects

Whether it's about getting the "look for less" or pride in creating something with your own two hands, do-it-yourself projects are a fun way to add custom pieces to your home decor. They're also great for rainy days. And I don't know about you, but we've been getting a LOT of rain in my neck of the woods lately.

I scoured Pinterest and rounded up my top 5 DIY projects that I can't wait to try! (Click the images to take you directly to the how-to.)

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Paint Choices | 15 Great Designer Colours

Choosing a wall colour can be so difficult. Paint chips are painfully small and don't give the idea of what the whole wall/room will look like finished in that colour. That's why I LOVE websites that post the finished product along with the paint colour and brand. Thanks to www.favoritepaintcolorsblog.com for putting them all together in one place!

Here are my Top 15 Designer Paint Colour Choices

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Celebrity Style | Christian Siriano Spring 2014

Let's call this Fashion Friday! Interior Decor and Fashion follow many of the same trends and cycles. When I saw Christian Siriano's graphic and colourful Resort 2014 collection, I just knew it would make great inspiration for interiors.

Which colour combination are you most drawn to, both in fashion and interiors?

Edmonton Interior Decorator | Designer Spotlight | Jonathan Adler

Rachel Zoe and Mary McDonald are my top two style icons, and now I have to add Jonathan Adler to that list. I love the energy, exuberance and unabashed joy he puts into his designs.

According to his official website, he is "dedicated to bringing style, craft and joy to your life."

It's clear to see he is influenced by mid-century modern design and pop culture. And if the image below doesn't say it all, I don't know what does...

Prescription for Anti Depressive Living

Below are a few of my favourite rooms. I love his use of pattern, texture and high contrast colours.

Edmonton Home Stager | Interior Styling | Hawkstone Home for Sale

Home Staging and Interior Styling in Edmonton

I had the privilege to work with the sellers to prepare their property for sale. Fortunately, their home is very contemporary and well kept. They didn't need traditional staging to make their home market-ready, so they chose interior styling. Interior Styling is a combination of decluttering and accessorizing to make the home picture perfect.

Below are some before (left) and after (right) pictures. Fortunately for them I was not the photographer, because my "before" pics came out really blurry. (Do not adjust your sets! haha) Clearly there was a smudge on my camera lens that I was unaware of. Sorry, guys.

From "lived in" to lovely

From "lived in" to inviting

From "every day" to picture perfect

From "blah" to oh-la-la

From simple to simply fabulous

Our listings are also interactive -- properties can be virtually decorated. 
How would you like to re-imagine this bedroom?
