Kelly Wearstler China by Pickard titled Mulholland
All that glitters should be gold! I have a long hisotry with obsessing over shiny objects, mirrors and other such feminine frosting. Nothing can make a space look more regal and rich than touches of gold. Gold symbolizes strength, health, riches and extravagance. As a precious metal gold represents excellence and praise but overdone it suggests deception, worthlessness and greed. The products I have presented here push the limits of gold without pursuing the negative effects of the metal. It is to be used in a glamorous and/or dramatic setting and can be an effective accent in a contemporary and stark space.
Austen Writing Table by Madeline Stuart
Gold touches speak of character, timelessness, detail and have an exotic quality. Paired with whites the color is feminine and soft and with black is masculine and dramatic. It can also make deep reds, blues and green seem just as rich.

Bathrooms have always captivated me in being small rooms with drama and presence. They are often the first thing people renovate in a home as a “small” renovation. Bathrooms are often the gems of a home next to the Kitchen and increase the resale value exponentially. If you can make a buyer feel like lighting some candles and hopping in for a bubble bath you have checked off a big item on their list.
To me a bathroom is just as much about texture and sparkle as a bedroom is. Playing with the texture of floor tiles and reflection of counter tops as well as ornate qualities in a one of a kind mirror can look astonishing next to snuggly towels and slippers. Treat your bathroom like a spa with scented candles, texture, the sound of running water and the heat of a nice warm towel. Spare no expense in the luxury of the bathroom and you will surely start your day off on the right foot.

Every woman wants a beautiful home that captures their spirit and personality. In a teal and white scheme like this you can picture a well poised young woman who irons her sheets, bakes cupcakes and whistles while she vacuums. She has a bounce in her step and loves all the flowers of spring. I like to call this Interior Design for her!
In this graceful color scheme:

Teal bedroom design. A room like this is successful because of how clean the details and lines are and yet their are still many details and intricate patterns keeping interest in the vignette. Mixing solid color with dense pattern and and accent of white texture is a great way to play with depth and tactile qualities. Bedrooms should be soft and soothing so blue and teal colors are the perfect choice to feel refreshed when you wake in the morning.
There are a million ways to fake the shape, size, form and flaws in a room. One of the best visual distractions is using stripes. As today was a pretty grey day in Edmonton I thought it would be lovely to bring in some color. Candy cane stripes are a bold statement that can add a lot of visual texture without necessarily adding cost or the need for many accessories. The stripe can weave you through a room or tell you where to look. It can make fat look thin and short look tall and can even throw off your depth perception. Stripes can be achieved with Paint, wall covering, fabric and a collage of other materials for any kind of DIY project.
