Transform your backyard into an extension of your home

Transform your backyard into an extension of your home

Although summer is almost gone, the autumn is the perfect time to enjoy your backyard.

(NC) — Although summer is almost gone, the autumn is the perfect time to enjoy your backyard. Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore colour and design expert, shares tips on how to bring the latest looks to your open-air escape.

Dine al fresco: Consider pushing your al fresco dining areas further out into the yard for a unique and ambient experience. “Cooking under the stars is the perfect way to spend time with family and friends while embracing the weather throughout the summer months,” says Grech. Barbecues, fire pits and outdoor wood ovens are great options for cooking when entertaining guests, as most of the cooking can be done right there.

Create an outdoor oasis: Injecting colourful accessories into your landscape is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to elevate a backyard and make it feel like an extension of your home. Whether it’s bright, colourful ornate items or hand-crafted outdoor rugs, adding colour to your backyard will create a vibrant and inviting retreat. Flower boxes, string lights and cushions are great ways to make a backyard feel like a serene and inviting oasis.

Deck design: Create areas of interest by using both semi-transparent and solid stains on your deck and rails. “I like to apply a natural, lighter stain on the deck, with a darker solid stain to enhance vertical architectural features like the railing,” says Grech. If your wood is new or in great shape, treat it with a simple translucent or semi-transparent stain like Benjamin Moore Arborcoat to heighten natural wood colour. Semi-solid stains are great for covering imperfections, allowing some of the grain and texture of the wood to show through, while solid stains are more like paint and leave an opaque colour and texture. “You can test the different translucencies and colours with pint sample cans. It’s always best to try-before-you-buy,” recommends Grech.

In addition to her residential design work, Rebecca and her team create award-winning sales pavilions for some of the top home builders in the GTA.

Rebecca Hay Designs – National Home Show/RENO & DECOR Booth inspired by classic and casual lakeside living.

Rebecca Hay Designs is pleased to announce we will be providing the design creation for the upcoming Design Intervention booth #4118 at the National Home Show.

Muskoka inspired and naturally nautical, I based the RENO & DECOR booth’s decor scheme on this classic summer home aesthetic. We have incoproated walls in painted white shiplap to add textural interest while creating a relaxed cottage living atmosphere. The crisp white walls will be balanced by the soft and varied wood tones of the furniture which was all selected from our furniture sponsor this year UpCountry and added in some fun custom hand printed pillows by Cottage Cloth which emphasize the nautical theme and easy going vibe.

We created these outdoor living spaces by adding a rich night sky mural provided by Ruth Baker Design and paired it with outdoor furnishings to simulate lakeside summer living. A custom “boathouse” bar was designed to create an outdoor entertaining zone, built by Pure Kitchens and paired with sleek black stone counters from Select Granite and a luxe faucet from Watermarks. In addition to comfortable indoor/outdoor living and entertaining, we wanted to include a bedroom vignette. With a buffalo check pattern created by Peacock Living, the walls are graphic, bold and fun.

The booth showcases a glimpse into lakeside living at it’s best.

Come visit me and the team while at the National Home Show this March and get design inspired!


On Monday, March 13 @ 2pm and Friday, March 16 @ 2pm – be sure to catch Rebecca on stage along with Kate Davidson and Linda Mazur as part of RENO & DECOR’s “Designer Panel”. The panel will be discussing “Realities Of A Reno”

Regardless of the size of your project or the footprint of your space, creating  a beautiful and luxurious aesthetic in our homes can be accomplished with a well laid out plan.  Style and luxury is not determined by the size of your space, but the design.  We can garner inspiration by all that we see, but realism is always necessary when renovating, not only about the space you’re working with but also your budget.  A good design can deliver all that your heart desires while creating for you a wonderfully luxurious, relaxing and inviting home that reflects your individuality and needs for years to come.

If you’re considering an upcoming renovation, join GTA designers Linda Mazur, Rebecca Hay, Kate Davidson at the National Home Show stage, where this panel of designers will be discussing how to make the most of your upcoming home renovations without compromising on luxury, style or functionality.  They will take you through the key aspects of renovating, share their top renovation strategies as well as fave kitchen, bath and home products to consider including in your homes in 2018.  Get inspired and reno ready in 2018!

GTA Home & Reno Show 2018 – ReCap


RENO & DECOR Magazine presents “Design Intervention

Visitors to the Design Intervention booth were treated to a combination of design advice and inspiration. The advice was courtesy of our host of design experts that were on hand to provide free 15 minute consultations. The inspiration was provided by the amazing booth space designed by Kate Davidson of Kate & Co Design Inc.. Using furnishings and accessories from Casalife and custom murals from Ruth Baker Design, Kate was able to create a beautiful, open space full of colour.


I took a different design approach when designing this years booth for Reno & Decor and created one space two ways. As a designer I like to work with colour and textures and tried to showcase how designing with colour can effect how we interpret our living spaces. Working with Casalife furnishings we created two cohesive looks from one living, dining and work spaces. One space was more moody with richer dark tones, while the other side was created using softer visual materials creating a light and airy feel.”

Top trend picks for 2018

Drama and colour will be the hot trend in home decorating

by Jo Alcorn

I love when the new trends for the upcoming year are revealed. It’s the perfect time to update your decor and freshen up your home. This year I am seeing (and loving) all things dramatic. Bronze decor, patterned wall treatments, beautifully bold pillows and all things brass. Here is a sneak peak at the trends I see emerging this year, many of which will be incorporated into my 2018 makeover projects.


This year, expect to see big and bold patterns and more items made in Canada. That’s certainly the case for my line of product, from matching dog beds and throw pillows, to the new wallpaper line, both are following these trends. Made-in-Canada and big bold patterns. Wallpaper $179, dog bed $129.99


The on-trend hosts will have brass silverware and plates. Brass is no longer just for your decor, you will now see it in table settings, flatware glasses and more. These beauties are from Wayfair.ca: cutlery $179.99


As the bronze trend continues, expect to see splashes of bronze throughout the home: on top of mantels, on media units, in wall decor and more. Looking for the perfect bronze decor? HomeSense has you covered from lamps and clocks to bookends and artwork.  Light $79.99; bowl $19.99; InstaFood sign $16.99


Look for a mix of materials in furniture pieces this year. This gorgeous multi-function piece is from Structube and it incorporates all the trends I am seeing this coming year – a mix of wood, glass and a metal frame along with drawers, making it the perfect blend of function meets style. Table $399


Step aside stainless steel because the new kid in town is Sunset Bronze. In 2018, it’s all about statement appliances. Functional and bold, the Sunset Bronze kitchen suite from Whirlpool brings warmth to any kitchen with its rich metallic finish. This statement suite of appliances is the very set I chose for my own kitchen reno (stay tuned for that reveal in early 2018). I wanted to go big or go bold in 2018, so this set met my criteria perfect. Pricing TBD


This year I am loving all things black in the bathroom. This trend is drastically different and really packs a punch when you enter the bathroom. The inky and edgy sophistication of matte black is the go-to finish for the design-savvy homeowner looking for a dose of drama in their space. From shower heads to faucets and towel bars and hooks, these black beauties from Delta Faucet are offered in a variety of show stopping collections including the Trinsic and Ara.

Delta Trinsic contemporary floor mount faucet $1,713.25

Delta Ara Monitor 17 Series H2Okinetic tub & shower trim $466.10


In addition to black and bronze, pink is red hot this year in wall colours, accessories and accent pieces. Want to add a bit of blush to your setting? Check out the super affordable ideas from Bouclair, from side tables and throws to artwork and accessories, they’ll have you tickled pink. Table 79.99; throw: 29.99


You all know I am obsessed with white. But this year it’s time for my love affair with white to take a backseat while I introduce bright, bold and powerful colours into my designs. It started slowly in 2017, but wait and see what I have in store for 2018. I am forecasting a mix of pinks and reds — used in the same space — for a few of my upcoming makeovers. Stay tuned for some dramatic and bold, on-trend makeovers. Here is one of the colours I think will be hot in 2018, Pleasant Pink by Benjamin Moore. From $49.99 gallon

Seeing Colour in 2018

By Rebecca Hay

The future is bold, bright and colourful. If you’re thinking of remodelling or re-decorating your home next year, colour is your best way to stay ahead of the curve. Here are a few of the trends you can expect to see.

Be bold on the FLOOR. Antique and Vintage Carpets have made a comeback. These “old” rugs allow us to bring colour and history into the home. This trend also includes the Second Life rug trend stronger than ever with their rich colourful hues. Burnished reds and washed out blues to name a few.

Warm rich, decadent RED is finally making a comeback after many years absent from the design scene. Dusty floral wallpaper and fabrics are the perfect expression of this trend.  The rich hue has even been highlighted as Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year, Caliente AF-290. Taking a cue from this trend and add some pop to your living room pillows with rich red timeless velvets such as Alendel Fabrics pandora collection. Nothing grabs your attention like a bold pop of red velvet!

Stronger bolder colours are being sought after in bathrooms. We are now seeing respected luxury bath product companies like on of my favourite companies Victoria + Albert Baths now offering distinctive new external FINISHES including: Gloss Black, Anthracite, Stone Grey, Light Grey, Matte Black. You can make a beautiful strong statement with their new dark tones: Gloss Black and Anthracite, sure to enliven any space. Using a standout dark tone will make a neutral bathroom memorable because “anything goes with black.”

Kitchens too are all about colour, being MOODY & making a statement. Classic white cabinetry will always be popular but we are starting to see more saturated blues and emerald greens top the list. Kitchens with contrasting cabinetry (white/navy) are still popular but more and more you will see full kitchens in one dark rich hue. It’s bold and brave and surprisingly inviting.

So there you have it, expect to see lot of rich bold colour in the year ahead.  Whatever your New Years decor plans are, be sure to keep in mind that it only takes a little of any trend to make a statement. So pick your favourite and make 2018 your most colourful year yet.

Trend Watch: Red Hot

by Silvana Longo

From the head-to-toe red that stomped down the catwalk in the Fall/Winter ’18 collections to revered paint company Benjamin Moore recently naming Caliente, a warm and charismatic red, as the 2018 colour of the year, there is no denying that this statement-making, beyond-bold hue is on fire. “Strong, radiant and full of energy, Caliente AF-290 is total confidence. It is pleasing, passionate and makes people feel special, like red-carpet treatment,” says Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence.

Red is radical. Red is regal. Among the robust adjectives used to describe the fiery shade, O’Neill has also discovered examples of the comfort red brings to a space—the cocooning, the assuredness.

Mixing varying shades of the primary colour may work in fashion, but if you want to use it in big doses in interiors, such as walls, avoid the shocking and go for warm, soothing tones that create a stately, luxurious feel. Not ready to plunge in that deep? Add an energizing splash of ruby to your decor to liven up a neutral space.

2018 Colours of the Year are bold and beautiful

Latest News


2018 Colours of the Year are bold and beautiful

Benjamin Moore and Sico Paints both announced their 2018 Colour of the Year this month and both leading paint companies have a bold vision for the coming year. Benjamin Moore declared its Colour of the Year 2018 as Caliente, a vibrant, charismatic shade of red, while Sico choose Cast Iron, an elegant and sophisticated black shade.

Benjamin Moore made their announcement to leading interior designers, architects and influencers at an exclusive event held at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.

“Strong, radiant and full of energy, Caliente is total confidence,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence. “It is pleasing, passionate and makes people feel special, like ‘red carpet treatment.’ Whether used as one note or on four walls, the spirited personality of red turns heads, signalling surprise and adventure. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes.”

Benjamin Moore also unveiled Colour Trends 2018, a curated palette of 23 highly influential hues that enliven any room by adding depth and energy. The palette incorporates a full spectrum of reds, from hints of blush to deep oxbloods, while ensuring seamless pairings with a carefully selected range of whites, neutrals, and complementary bold hues. The Benjamin Moore Colour Trends 2018 palette includes: Caliente AF-290, Deep Poinsettia 2091-30, Cherry Wine 2080-30, Cranberry Cocktail 2083-20, Texas Rose 2092-40, Pleasant Pink 2094-60, Saddle Soap 2110-30, Incense Stick 2115-20, Smoked Oyster 2109-40, Excalibur Gray 2118-50, Wolf Gray 2127-40, Stone 2112-40, Black Beauty 2128-10, Silver Marlin 2139-50, Carolina Gull 2138-40, Dreamy Cloud 2117-70, Moonshine 2140-60, Sharkskin 2139-30, Elk Horn AF-105, Peau de Soie AF-60, Golden Retriever 2165-30, White Opulence OC- 69 and Coastal Path AF-380

The Benjamin Moore Colour & Design team annually forecasts colour trends following a year-long research journey to 30 cities across 12 countries, travelling nearly 160,000 kilometres. The team attended more than 20 industry shows capturing more than 42,200 photos that illustrate points of inspiration from the arts, design, architecture, pop culture, fashion, home furnishings and more. Their collective findings demonstrated an emergence of red hues, embodying the change, strength, confidence and vitality that permeates cultural movements around the world.

According to Sico colour experts, black paint highlights a perfect mix of modern yet timeless sophistication and offers a flexibility in design that is often overlooked. Similar to your favourite black handbag, Cast Iron pairs beautifully with almost any design style.

“Cast Iron is a perfect choice for do-it-yourselfers who crave a grounded room that is enveloped in comfort and coziness, beginning with their paint colour selection,” said Mylène Gévry, senior marketing manager, Sico paint brand by PPG. “This colour is hard to ignore and provides a certain grandeur or simplicity to a space because of its flexibility.”

While black commands attention on its own, Sico colour experts recommend pairing it with a variety of other tones. Layer this deep, rich midnight hue with a variety of trending softer neutrals, such as Vanilla Orchid (6188-21), a nutmeg-tone like Roma Antiqua (6231-63), a brown-grey like Flawless Grey (6212-31) and a warm white like Zen (6222-11) for a tranquil and minimal look.

To make a dramatic statement, pair Cast Iron with a dark burgundy like Venetian Wine (6082-85), a mid-tone grey like Industrial Grey (6212-52), a soft beige like Gobi Dunes (6194-42) and an off-white like Ground Coriander (6218-21). Combined with brass or gold accents, this colour palette will give the appearance of elegance and luxury.

The colour was unanimously selected by PPG’s more than 20 global colour stylists, who specialize in industries that include consumer electronics, architectural, automotive and aerospace. These experts study consumer insights, building material trends, decor trends and more to select a colour forecast that resonates and is reflective of current consumer attitudes.

“Sico paint’s Cast Iron perfectly complements the various trending black building materials and home accessories that we’re seeing in the marketplace. From timeless black windows to matte black kitchen appliances, this hue will fit in perfectly with modern or traditional design elements,” Gévry noted.

“Black is often overlooked and underappreciated when choosing paint colours for the home, but its ability to refine, subdue and add strength to a space makes it a perfect choice,” said Misty Yeomans, colour marketing manager. “It brings solace and a peacefulness to any space, creating a haven in which to retreat from our always-connected, high-pressure society. Its versatility in pairing with other colours adds to its allure in home decorating.”
