Design Crush: Not Your Grandma’s Traditional

Traditional Living Room by Little Rock Interior Designers & Decorators Tobi Fairley Interior Design   When I give a design seminar, I start by doing a little quiz with the attendees to help them pinpoint their decorating style. It’s definitely not very scientific but it’s a fun way to kick off the session. There are […]

Design Crush: Golden Lake Rustics

Last week when we headed out for our yearly vacation on the sandy shores of Golden Lake (between Eganville and Barry’s Bay in the Ottawa Valley) I thought I was escaping from the world of design trends for a while…but when we arrived at McMillan’s Cabins one of the first things I saw was this: […]

Design Crush (or not!): Radiant Orchid

Show of hands please. Who has had a purple room in their life? Mom & Aunt Anne, please put your hands up, I know you have some purple/pink skeletons in your closet! My own hand is up, I had some purple curtains in university and a matching duvet. But today there’s not a single accessory […]

Design Crush: Birch Tree Candle Holders

The CB2 holiday flyer was delivered with my Style at Home magazine last week. While we don’t have a store in Ottawa I always browse the flyer for ideas. They do ship here, so if I found something I had to have, I could always order online. This time though, I found something I had to […]
