The 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show

The 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show

As fall brings changes to the weather, it also inspires us to make improvements in our homes. Whether you’re looking to do a big kitchen renovation, a small bathroom revamp or convert your laneway into a livable space, the 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show will help make this a reality.

With more than three decades of experience helping homeowners, condo dwellers and renters restructure, reorganize and restyle their spaces, this year’s show is set to once again bring the best experts to the GTA.

The 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show is a source for consumers to connect with the right people and find the right solutions for their living space (even ones to help you get rid of ghosts).

Here’s a peek at what will be featured:

Tiny Village

With rising real estate prices, there’s a tiny movement happening in Toronto. Small space living is becoming more of a reality for most people, with an increase in small condos, container homes and even laneway/infill housing. There are 47,000 lots on laneways that exist today, which can provide homeowners ample opportunities to supplement their income. Still, small space living doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. The Tiny Village brings together the best of small space design, with units from True North Tiny Home and Eva Lanes.

Bad reno or paranormal activity?

For the first year ever, the Toronto Fall Home Show is bringing its very own paranormal activity expert, so you can figure out if the creaks in your floorboards are just your pipes… or if they’re ghosts! Chat with paranormal investigator Glenn Laycock for tips on what to do if you have an unwanted guest from beyond in your home, or take a Ghost Walk through the haunted Horse Palace.

Designer Pumpkin Patch

Ditch your plastic Halloween decor for chic and stylish pumpkins to give curb appeal a whole new meaning, with tips from the exquisite Designer Pumpkin Patch. Let designer Nicholas Rosaci inspire your own posh pumpkin design, make one yourself or purchase a pre-styled option, with all proceeds going to the SickKids Foundation.

Kitchen stage

The kitchen is the focal point of a home, and the 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show will be no different. Sit back and enjoy some of the city’s top chefs cooking up a storm on the kitchen stage and pick up tips from several expert speakers, including Ramsin Khachi, Marie Kondo Way expert Effy Nicopoulos, Rebecca Hay, Emmanuel Belliveau and Chef Christopher Woods.

Tips to incorporate the Pantone Colour of the Year throughout your home

Tips to incorporate the Pantone Colour of the Year throughout your home

Pantone Living Coral Entryway

The Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year “Living Coral” can do almost anything, proving itself to be much more than just an accent colour. We sat down with Nicholas Rosaci, interior design expert and upcoming speaker at the 2019 GTA Home & Reno Show, to talk decor trends and learn how to incorporate this vibrant hue into our home for the upcoming year.

Coral is beautiful and earthy, a much-anticipated arrival on the tails of the “pink” scene – a coveted colour of choice lately. However, unlike a pure pink – which can appear childlike and Barbie mansion-esque – Pantone’s “Living Coral” is a little more grown up without losing any of the juicy energy of its pink counterpart.

“Coral is a surprisingly versatile colour,” says Rosaci. “Coral can stand alone on its own while also acting as a great accent to existing neutrals like sand beige, jute and taupes. Its gold undertones naturally and luxuriously pairs well with gold hardware accents and most would be surprised by how beautifully modern Living Coral looks when incorporated with more modern grey trends. Living Coral really warms up cool grey and looks especially chic with chrome and glass.

Rosaci believes in using colour everywhere, but especially in entryways or dining rooms places where you really want to create an impression and call for drama.

Entryway

In the foyer, try painting the front door both inside and out, and perhaps look for a great upcycled project like a vintage chest of drawers painted the same shade, or a touch lighter or darker for contrast.

Dining room

“Formal dining rooms should be decorated for glamorous evenings,” says Rosaci. “The simple addition of silk drapery in a Living Coral shade adds a shimmering warm elegance to a space.”  Try upping your design game with a deep emerald-green room with gorgeous coral silk drapery, trimmed in a black-and- white Greek key trim detail.

Den

In the den, explore painting the interior back of your cabinets or bookshelves in the hue, or using hints of the colour in all kinds of artwork, throw cushions and other decorative accessories.

 

Kitchen

Coral in the kitchen can really kick up your decor a notch. Warm, inviting and unexpected, the colour works well with a plethora of wood options, tableware and accessories.  “The colour pairs well with tropical palm leaf fabrics, which really liven up a tired kitchen for an instant tropical vibe,” says Rosaci. “You can even just add a little warmth with coral upholstered bar chairs to go with a white, modern kitchen.”

Bedroom

Try popping a few coral pillow cases into your existing grey bedsheets and watch it instantly look refreshed, revitalized and inviting. Unlike orange, Living Coral works beautifully with black. “Every room should have an accent of black to draw the eye in,” says Rosaci. “With coral, the look is very soothing and not as jarring as black and orange – which can look like a Halloween decor ad.”

Lastly, even as a winter trend, Living Coral looks especially glamorous with winter white and faux fur while still being a colour that transitions well into the spring and summer.  Ahh yes – summer – it may not be here yet, but Pantone’s new colour of the year Living Coral certainly reminds us that warmer days are only a paint brush away.
