Using Pinterest to Help Define your Style at Home

Are you thinking of investing in new furniture and décor for your home but you aren’t sure where to start? Do you like modern architecture but want your home to be warm and inviting? It can be tricky to figure out what design style suits you best.
Today designers mix genres and break rules when it comes to conventional tastes and ideas so the best way to guarantee you end up with the house of your dreams is to hire a designer whose work you love. Ultimately they need to balance your style and look with what is practical, affordable and realistic for your family. White sofas look great but are not so great in a lake house with a dog. Dark slate floors are beautiful but show dirt, so not so good for kids.
Pinterest boards can be great to kick-start the research process. Wildly pin, then look back to see the patterns in what you’ve chosen.

1. Big Bold Florals – We simply can’t get enough of this new take on traditional floral wallpaper. Oversized and dramatic, many designers are using dark hues and moody organic compositions. This makes for a major statement. Go bold behind the bed or in a living room, you don’t want to hide these showstoppers in a corner or powder room.

Summer Party Tricks

The heat is on and so are the summer soirees. The truth is that like any party, a summer event, requires work and great pre-planning. The nice thing about hosting an outdoor event is that it is naturally more casual. We are going to take a cue from the current boho trend and relax. Here are some ideas we want to try that are both creative and easy.
1. Flea Market Finds – mix and match, use multiple patterns and keep it low key. Linens, china, and flatware don’t have to match to look great. The same goes for flowers arrangements. Use vases of different sizes and shapes and easy seasonal cut flowers. Herbs make great centrepieces and smell wonderful.
