Dreaming – and living – in colour

Latest News


Dreaming – and living – in colour

You can’t scare designer Meredith Heron with colour. Or small spaces. And you most certainly cannot convince her that the former does not belong in the latter.

“It just has to be well-conceived,” says Heron, whose mastery of both is reflected in the 10-by-15-ft. master bedroom of the narrow Victorian — 21 ft. at its widest point and under 1,000 sq. ft. overall — she shares in downtown Toronto with husband Asa Weinstein and son Luke.

Nor did it faze Heron that the house — like many of its genre — could be dark and prone to shadow, and she scoffs at the notion that colour would emphasize those challenges.

While the room appears carefully planned, Heron admits there’s an accidental aspect to its appeal.

CREATIVE COLLECTION

“It became the room where I put the furniture from design projects that did not work out,” says Heron. “The chair, for example, was abandoned by someone who paid for me to have it fixed. The bedside tables I purchased at the Bombay 12 years ago, because it was the only thing I could afford!”

Colour unifies these disparate elements, which combine to make a dreamy retreat. It’s cosy without being cramped, and tone and texture add depth and interest.

Confident colour starts with walls covered in Para’s St. Boniface (recently renamed Grey Midnight), which Heron called “the perfect neutral, a wonderful mutable shade of indigo.”

HAPPY HUES

Blues and greens are moody, but somehow still bright; with palm-shaped splashes of blue in a duvet cover from West Elm, punctuated by trim on patterned European shams, whose hues are echoed in the headboard and large Chinoiserie hanging between south-facing windows.

Other art and accessories is restrained, but equally interesting — matching slim-hipped lamps, black-and-white linen prints in simple frames, a photo or two, and a set of sculptural, ethically-sourced Antelope horns, (like deer antlers, they fall off the animal).

MAKE ROOM FOR TEXTURE

Above the bed, a small-scaled sunburst mirror and overhead, a delicate chandelier.

Heron, who’s known as much for a breezy way with pattern as she is for an ease with colour, has a fondness for animal motifs that show up in a zebra print on a handsome yet useful bench at the foot of the bed.

Another print — a verdant botanical from Schumacher on Roman blinds — ties a neat bow on cream, navy and blush tones.

While using a pattern as a base for a palette is not an uncommon designer trick, Heron turned the convention upside down.

“It looks like the starting point, but it’s actually the finishing point, that last thing I picked,” says Heron. “But it brings everything together for a more deliberate look.”

Designer and television host Meredith Heron characterizes her work as an extensive conversation with colour, form, pattern and texture. meredithheron.com

Decor Expert: A Good Night’s Sleep

Decor Expert: A Good Night’s Sleep

What to do to ensure sweet slumber

For me, a good night’s sleep is a carefully orchestrated event. A proper mattress, sumptuous bedding, and light-control can mean the difference between a deep sleep and restless night of discontent. To improve the quality of sleep, and also your mood and quality of life, just follow a few simple tips. Here are my do’s and don’ts for getting a great night’s sleep.

Do invest in quality bedding. We spend a third of our lives in bed. When you think of it in those terms, it’s hardly extravagant to choose the best bedding you can afford. Opt for pure cotton sheets, which will breathe and keep you cooler.

Don’t be fooled, thread count alone does not determine the fineness of sheets. Egyptian cotton is widely believed to be the world’s best, most luxurious cotton. Its long fibres create the smoothest finished product. Less popular, though coveted by many, linen has a cool crispness that is ideal for summer sleeping. The ideal thread count for a sheet is a matter of personal preference. Some favour the crispness of 250 percale (like a favourite GAP shirt), others swoon over 320-thread count cotton sateen sheets (‘sateen’ is pure cotton whose weave gives it a satiny sheen). A 600-thread count sheet made of inferior cotton and poorly woven may be sub-standard quality. Always consider thread count in tandem with weaving and material quality.

Do think about the hidden value of your mattress; the construction. A well-made mattress accommodates a comfortable sleep, minimizes pressure points, reduces tossing and turning, and adds greatly to the quality of sleep. The coil system, comfort layers, and ticking or outer layer are the essential elements to consider. One quality coil system is the pocket coil, where each spring moves independently, allowing for private sleep space and excellent spinal alignment. Comfort layers consist of various types of foams or felts and are designed to make the mattress “feel” softer or firmer, though they do not affect the “support” the bed yields.

Don’t forget to rotate the mattress every six months to maintain integrity and comfort. do add a featherbed (a thin layer of down, duck and/or goose feathers) between the mattress and fitted sheet. The best versions have a pillow top of pure down, so feathers don’t jab. don’t be a slave to ironing. It’s the last 20 minutes in the dryer that causes wrinkles so remove sheets and pillowcases after 15 minutes in the dryer and fold and smooth them over a chair or shower rod to finish drying naturally. Consider a coverlet made of heavy matellese or quilting to top the bed. That way you’ll never have to worry about ironing the duvet.

Do provide full blackout drapes for bedroom windows if possible. And avoid having electronics that glow all night long. These items can subtly interfere with sleep.

Don’t ignore the benefits of proper lighting. A good reading lamp is a must if you’re a nighttime reader. A well-lit closet can help you find the black pants and avoid the navy ones. For general illumination, always add dimmers, which allow you to wake up gently on winter mornings.

Homework can be fun

Latest News


Homework can be fun

By Lisa Canning

I recently created a gorgeous bedroom space that incorporated a home office. Here are my top tops when creating multi-use spaces.

Start with a Beautiful Bed

All hard-working mamas and papas deserve a beautiful bed. After a hard day of raising kids, working outside and inside the home, moms and dads are tired. So invest in a beautiful bed.

This Wayfair bed does not disappoint; it is soft, plush and elegant. I love the tufted headboard and the drama the wingbacked headboard adds. Plus, this was a great value; I have spent upwards of $4,000 on custom upholstered, storage beds so getting this one for less than $2,000 all in is just fabulous.

A beautiful bed needs a quality mattress. Here we used the award winning Casper Mattress. This mattress offers ZonedSupport, an innovative foam framework that contours specifically to each area of the body for comfort, anatomical support and spinal alignment. I also chose Casper’s sheet and duvet set in a crisp white. A bonus, they deliver right to your door and arrive within days of ordering.

Designate a Spot for the Office

Once your bed is taken care of, designate the area you want to set up your office. I opted for custom millwork to utilize every square inch of storage I could. Going custom allowed us to paint the desk this gorgeous turquoise colour, Benjamin Moore Waterfall 2050-50. Take note of the brass hand-cast cabinet pulls from Toronto entrepreneur Shayne Fox. They’re like jewellery on this desk.

Every desk needs a chair, and this one is a game changer. It literally felt like a hug for my lower back and pelvis. The CoreChair is an ergonomic chair that provides support while introducing movement into your workday, meaning you kind of wiggle when you sit in it, which keeps the muscles active, helping us to avoid lower back pain. This chair needs to be in homes and offices everywhere.

Add Your Personality

This is important, regardless of the kind of space you are creating; it has to reflect you and your unique personality. Here I just had to add elements like the Metrie door painted Benjamin Moore Yellow Highlighter 2021-40. To ensure this was the focal point, we kept the adjacent Metrie sliding closet doors in white to ensure some balance.

Again, to ensure the space didn’t feel too overwhelming with all the vibrant pops, I wrapped the room in Metrie’s tongue-and-groove paneling and painted it Benjamin Moore Decorator White CC-20. I love interior mouldings; they provide such a beautiful textural element to any space.

Every bedroom needs to feel cozy and comfortable, which is why I added ample blankets and pillows in a variety of textures, all within our colour palette to stay harmonious, and displayed them on the ladder from Bouclair. Lighting also makes a big impact in the room, with a stunning modern chandelier from Bouclair adding an architectural element.

Lastly, the fun accessories. I picked up the tray and yellow pen holder at Bouclair, where it’s easy to come home with a carful of fun, well-priced accessories. I love the painterly element of this tray and on trend rope detail.

Active Home: A Designer’s Guide To Bed-Making

Latest News


Active Home: A Designer’s Guide To Bed-Making

I admit it – I’m a bed maker. There may be some of you who tend to leave it as is or toss the comforter over the lumpy sheets and pillows. And why not? You’re only going to get back into it in the next 14 to 16 hours. Not me – I gain a great sense of satisfaction from a well-made bed and can’t start my day until I do so.

I will also admit to having a few (maybe nine) pillows on my bed. A well-designed bed is like painting or cooking – you’re adding layers to the medium that you’re working in and building on the flavours. In the art of bed-making, you’re also layering with fabrics, textures and pillows to create the perfect bed – that’s just right for you.

Photography By John Heineman

The design of your headboard generally sets the tone, as it’s the backdrop for your bedding. The material that it’s made of, as well as the height and the style, will influence the overall look. However, you can create different effects if you don’t have a headboard – and that’s where pillows (and more pillows) can come in handy.

START AT THE BOTTOM

Fitted sheets are now deeper – more voluminous – in order to accommodate thicker mattresses, pillow tops and mattress covers. Make sure that the bottom sheet is pulled taut and tucked under all of the corners. The top (flat) sheet should be placed with the pattern down. The end with the largest hem goes at the head of the bed, then when you fold it over, the pattern will be showing. I prefer solid-coloured sheets, like white or natural-toned, so that I can make a bigger statement with my top covers. I also include a thin, cotton blanket for a breathable layer of insulation. If I don’t want to use the duvet, or find that it’s too hot, I still feel cosy.

BOUNTIFUL BEDDING

Duvets are very versatile covers, because inserts come in varying degrees of warmth ratings, as well as alternative stuffing options. I’ll share a design secret with you – for an extra fluffy looking bed, add an extra duvet inside the cover.

Unlike duvets, comforters don’t require inserts. The colours and patterns of the fabric are usually dyed, then filled with a polyester (synthetic) batting and stitched to keep the filling evenly distributed. Often a comforter is sold in a packaged set, with pillow shams and (possibly) decorative cushions to match.

Photography By Brandon Barre

Not all bedding manufacturers have caught up with the changing mattress industry, so I suggest that you purchase a duvet or comforter that is a size larger than the actual bed – a king for a queen, a queen for a double, etc. When dealing with a king-sized bed, I will often have top covers custom-made with additional fabric for better coverage.

PULL IT ALL TOGETHER

It is my penchant to expose approximately one quarter of the top sheet by folding it down from the head of the bed. Turn down the sheet, blanket and duvet together, and then smooth them down. I’ve ironed many beds into this configuration for photographs, and its very rewarding when all the linens line up. If you prefer a flat finish, bring the sheet, blankets and covers up to the head of the bed, and then smooth out each layer (one at a time) so that they lay flat.

Trend-setting bed frames now have lower sides and exposed legs. With this type of look, the bedding should be tucked in to keep it sleek and stylish. For this modern effect, you’ll need to look up how to do a proper hospital corner, unless your career background makes you an expert.

PILLOW POWER

Start with two sleeping pillows, place the open ends of the pillowcases so that they meet each other in the middle of the bed. Next up are the Euro shams. Arrange up to three (on a king-sized bed) of these large, square pillows. They should complement the duvet cover, but they don’t have to match. The next set of pillows fill the matching shams of the duvet cover. As these will only be used for display, make sure that they are nice and full. Arrange complementary throw pillows in colours and textures to go with the overall ensemble.

For the pièce de résistance, add a quilt or matelassé along the bottom of the bed.

This is just a guideline to making a fabulous-looking bed. If you invest in great bedding, and then add your personal preferences and style sense, I guarantee that you’ll want to make up your bed everyday.

Jo Alcorn: How to Create the Best Bedroom Retreat

Latest News


Jo Alcorn: How to Create the Best Bedroom Retreat

When the cooler weather arrives, people tend to hunker down and seek out cuddly corners in their home. Fall is an ideal time to create a cozy bedroom retreat, before the annual time change and seasonal lack of sunshine happens. Looking after this ever so important room in the house will ensure you get a good night’s rest during the cooler months ahead, and all year long!

Here are my top 5 tips to creating the most inviting and relaxing bedroom retreat out there.

Mattress Madness – This is the nuts and bolts of creating a deep and restful sleep. There are hundreds of mattress options out there, and your choice will literally make or break the quality of your sleep. I recently tested out a new mattress from Bill’s Bed, which was delivered directly to my door in a golf bag-sized box (the box spring also came in a box) – they were both so manageable I could get them up my super small staircase on my own. It’s the most innovative mattress I have seen! Not only did it pop out of a box, it has this amazing double-sided option; one side of the mattress is firm and the other plush. So, depending on your preference, you can simply flip the mattress over to get the perfect firmness for you! It also has a great 100-night sleep guaranteed – but rest assured, I’ve already tested out this mattress and it will not be going anywhere!

Attention to Ambiance – Whenever I create a bedroom space for my clients, I ensure this room feels relaxing, giving my clients a perfect space to unwind. I love to include a fireplace in a bedroom – after all, what could really be any more relaxing than a fireplace? Got a small space or don’t have access to a romantic wood burning option to help you relax? No problem! Dimplex has simple and sleek units that come out of a box and literally plug in so you can enjoy the ambiance of a fire year round. Plus, they are so realistic looking; you won’t miss the mess of a wood-burning unit for one second! They also have no-heat options which are very cool, excuse the pun! These allow you to have all the ambiance of a flaming fire without the heat, in the warmer months, too.

All Day I Dream of Darkness – Ensuring your room doesn’t have a stitch of light slipping through the curtains or blinds is key to a good night’s rest. Bouclair has super affordable blackout curtains and now they even have blinds that are light blocking. Now you can keep style front and centre in your space but also ensure not light enters your sleeping zone. Luckily, there is no need to sacrifice style for performance with all the options they have.

Sumptuous Sleep – I love to choose bedding that is lush, fun and curl-up inducing. I always top a bed with some great pillows from my Jo Alcorn collection, and my headboards create the finishing touch that makes you want to dive right in and relax. My line is now available for purchase online, delivered right to your door with white glove service. Pop on over to my site to peruse what might work in your space – Jo Alcorn Collection

Diffusing to Dream Land – Every person, young and old, can benefit from a bedtime routine. Hot baths with Epsom salts, journaling before bed about what you are grateful for, or diffusing your favourite essential oil to help you un-wind from the day are all great options to get you off to sleep easily and relaxed from the day’s stresses. I love the idea of a diffuser in your bedroom to disperse essential oils into the room at night to create a peaceful atmosphere. My fav? A great atomizing diffuser from independent distributor of Young Living, The Oil Girls.

Those are a few tips and products I love to incorporate in any bedroom I design. They are the keys to a good night’s rest, which we all need. And they help to relieve stress as soon as we enter this special place. Let’s face it – we all need, deserve in fact, a place where we want to cuddle up and feel our best. So get started now, before the weather turns cold and you wish you had a calm, relaxing spot to retreat to.

Designer Touch – Sea-Side Dreams

Latest News


Designer Touch – Sea-Side Dreams

A masterful master bedroom and bath makeover make the most of a lakeside view.

Photography By Stephani Buchman

Nestled among the charms of downtown Oakville, this three-level townhouse boasts picture perfect lakefront views, with sailboats and swans bobbing by daily. The aquatic outdoor scenery became a natural source of interior inspiration, with each room designed to frame the vistas and invite them in. Here’s how we achieved this serene marine esthetic.

The natural place to start was with the home’s colour palette, which organically tended toward the tranquil tones of the sea. In the master bedroom, we opted for gentle cream, grey and seafoam, complementing the outdoor views and welcoming the lakeside life in.

MARINE-INSPIRED SELECTIONS

Every room demands a focal point to anchor the eye. In this master bedroom, it’s the fireplace. To make this a true statement piece and tie it together with the home’s prevailing nautical theme, we faced it with multi-tonal mosaic tile that shimmers in the light, inspired by waves catching the sun. The bed also became a dramatic focal point for the room, with its charcoal-coloured, upholstered and tufted headboard. Positioned on the main wall opposite the fireplace, this large, king-sized headboard brings balance to the room. Underfoot, the hardwood floor was softened and warmed with an oversized custommade area rug, which brings texture and complements the cream-andseafoam colour scheme. The rug is large enough to cover most of the floor’s surface, unifying the sitting area with the sleep zone.

On either side of the fireplace, a pair of mirrored closet doors, accented with oval crystal knobs, bring a much-needed touch of sparkle. The mirrors are as pretty as they are functional, bouncing light and views around the room to make it appear larger than its actual size, while delivering stylish storage space.

NATURAL LIGHT

On the adjacent wall, a bank of windows features a pair of French doors in the centre, flanked by two stationary windows. For privacy and light protection, we installed Hunter Douglas woven shades in a grey-green tone to complement the colour scheme when closed. But with this spectacular view, the shades are usually opened, so we framed the view with decorative pinch-pleated drapes in a soft textured fabric, echoing the prevailing creamand- seafoam colour palette.

SIMPLY LUXURIOUS

Attached to the master bedroom, the ensuite bath follows the same airy esthetic with 12-by-24-inch marble floor tiles that lighten and brighten the space. The luxury continues with the addition of a large steamshower, complete with a rain-shower fixture and wall jets, and heated floors for pampered and toasty toes. A minimalistic custom double vanity with oversized drawers adds simplicity, sensibility and storage space. Above the vanity, we installed an oversized mirror with integrated sconces, for visual interest.

DESIGNER NOTES

This master retreat makeover was part of a much larger home renovation and reorganization. We moved the master bedroom from the third floor to the second, which once housed the family room. We also added some space from an adjoining room and closet in order to create a large master bathroom and master closet. This provided for a more practical layout, putting the two older children on the top floor with two bedrooms and a large adjoining bathroom.

GET THIS LOOK

Think about where you spend your time, and invest space accordingly. Consider re-jigging your floor plan, and don’t be afraid to take some square footage from secondary rooms to create a luxury retreat that dreams are made of!

A cantilevered bench seat of quartz was added as a restful place to relax in the steam shower. A bench like this requires steel supports to ensure stability, so consider this option when planning and framing your shower—not as an afterthought.

To achieve this sophisticated seaside style, we combined varying tones of the same colour palette throughout the home. The visual interest comes via the use of contrast. Varying shades of creams, greys and greens, and their combination of light and dark, bring warmth and drama to the space.

SOURCES BATHROOM FLOOR & SHOWER TILE: Ciot; VANITY, MIRROR: custom by Kate + Co; PLUMBING FIXTURES: Watermarks; VANITY SCONCES: Restoration Hardware; BATH WALL PAINT: Lacey Pearl 2108-70 Benjamin Moore; BEDROOM MASTER BEDROOM PAINT: Sea Salt CSP-95 Benjamin Moore; KING BED, DRAPERIES: custom through Kate + Co; CUSTOM AREA RUG, ACCENT CHAIR, NIGHTSTANDS: Cocoon Furnishings; BENCH SEAT: Colette Bench by Crate & Barrel; ACCENT TABLE: Casalife; BLINDS: Hunter Douglas

Spa day: High-end bathroom renos can require some extra planning work

Spa day: High-end bathroom renos can require some extra planning work

For many contractors, bathroom renovations are their bread and butter. For one, as people’s tastes change over time if you do a good job the first time, you could end up with repeat business every five or 10 years. Often, the work is a simple touch-up, swapping out some dated fixtures and tiles, and repainting the walls.

rc_aug30_2017_7

But some clients want a complete spa-like experience at home and are willing to take over dens and smaller bedrooms to achieve their goals. While potentially lucrative, these larger bathroom renovations require some careful planning.

For starters, you’ll likely need to extend or run new water supply lines to the new fixtures and connect the drain for each to the stack.

rc_aug30_2017_5

Many modern fixtures also often require electrical power supply. Kohler’s DTV+ system, for example, uses a waterproof touchscreen to control the showerhead, body sprays, steam settings, and built-in audio. The interface connects to a controller via a supplied 25’ cable that should be hung with a drip loop. The controller itself plugs into a standard outlet.

rc_aug30_2017_3

An in-home sauna is another luxurious option. Once framed, you’ll want to insulate the walls, floor, and ceiling around the sauna and cover it with foil vapour barrier to reflect the heat back inwards. In addition to framing the room itself, you’ll need power supply for the lights, thermostat, exhaust fan, and heating cable (or natural gas if you’re going that route). You’ll also need dedicated ductwork for the exhaust.

While long-popular overseas, bidets are slowly but surely making inroads here in Canada. Kohler’s C3 units are retrofit seats that can convert an existing toilet into a working bidet, complete with heated seat and warm-air fan for drying. The unit plugs into a dedicated GFCI receptacle. If one doesn’t exist within 12” of the basin, you’ll need to add an outlet.

rc_aug30_2017_4

Mirrors and vanities may also require wiring. Kohler’s lighted Verdera medicine cabinet has built-in LED lighting that can be connected to a dimmer switch. There are also two electrical outlets on the inside for small appliances such as electric razors and toothbrushes. The company’s Tailored Vanity series includes an optional three-plug outlet that mounts inside the cabinet.

rc_aug30_2017_6

To maximize space and add a stylish look, one increasingly popular option is a wall-mounted toilet such as Kohler’s Veil. The nice thing about this model is that the tank mounts on an adjustable bracket that fits between the wall studs. If your client is considering a Veil toilet, keep this in mind when running your other plumbing, wiring, and ductwork in the wall cavity.

rc_aug30_2017_1

If you are tearing out walls to combine existing rooms, you may need to reroute some of the ductwork so you don’t end up with hot and cold pockets in the newly configured room. Also keep in mind that adding additional fixtures and opening up walls may mean the existing exhaust fan is undersized. Check the unit’s CFM rating to see if you need to upgrade it.

rc_aug30_2017_2

Finally, if they’re going to go to all this trouble, your client will likely also want heated floors. Heated mats hardwired in place directly below the tiles are the simplest option. But for long-term savings, homeowners might want to consider a hydronic system.

Before & After : Bedroom

Before & After : Bedroom

By : Jo Alcorn

While many people overlook their bedroom thinking no one sees it but them, it is a room that people should make a priority. It’s the first thing you see in the morning, and the last room you curl up in at night, so why not make it a place that brings you joy?

While there was nothing wrong functionally with this bedroom, it really lacked inspiration, detail and personality. My goal was to fill up this large space with items that brought it to life, and add detailing that would make it a show stopper in this home.

To start, I always recommend a colour that you love; choose one that gives you a serene, relaxing feel and that speaks to you personally. For this space I chose Wickham Gray HC-171. It is the base that started to bring this room to life.

To add interest and dimension, I made a few features in this space with moulding. We created a wall treatment using great trim products from Metrie, which gives the space an elegant feel.

The most common request when working on a bedroom remodel is to create a serene, relaxing atmosphere. A fireplace is the perfect addition to a bedroom setting, but the main issue I encounter is that wood is messy and gas is expensive to install. A great option is an electric unit. Electric has drastically evolved in recent years and can create the exact ambiance, mood and overall sense of comfort that is perfect for a bedroom. They are also easy to install and extremely affordable. This unit is a Dimplex unit that took the homeowner only 25 minutes to unload, unpack and set up!

To spice up the new fireplace unit, we had a custom build-up created to give it that “real” fireplace mantel feel. We used Metrie products again and matched the existing crown moulding to the new unit. It creates a simply stunning effect. To add the finishing touches to the mantel I picked up some great artwork and accessories from HomeSense to really pull it all together.

No bedroom is complete without a bed – it is the most important functional piece in the room. In this space we used a Casper mattress, which was delivered in a box right to the homeowners’ front door. It’s a great option for people without cars and city dwellers. Plus it’s extremely comfortable! Pair that up with the headboard and bed frame from the Jo Alcorn Collection and we have a winning combination of style, colours, textures and comfort.

Now to dress the bed. This is where you can have some serious fun with patterns, colour and texture. We started with crisp white sheets, pillows and pillow cases from Casper and topped it off with a subtle duvet cover from HomeSense. Again from the Jo Alcorn Collection, we used pillows to incorporate the exact texture and finishing touches that are perfect for this room.

The side table lamps and curtains were purchased from Wayfair.ca. Wayfair is a great site that has an outstanding amount of products to choose from (over 7 million to be exact!), their site is easy to navigate and they offer two-day delivery options and free shipping over CAD $75.

I often like to add a bench to the end of the bed. It looks great and is also the perfect place to pile your decorative pillows and throw at night when you turn in. For this space I used this stylish white bench from Bouclair which fit perfectly in the space and the budget. We picked up a great light from Bouclair as well.
