If you follow me on social media (Instagram in particular), you may have seen that I was a featured designer at the Calgary Home and Garden Show in early March. The feature was a collection of seven different vignettes. Each one incorporating some of my favourite elements of design.
Putting this feature together was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. All seven vignettes were assembled in less that 24 hours! I joked with my contractors that it was akin to building a seven room house. Needless to say, I could not have put this feature together without the support of my incredible trades and suppliers (listed below).
And today I’m finally sharing the vignettes with you here. While I struggle to pick a favourite, I’d love to know which you like best!
Shaken, Not Stirred
Black paint balances the bold wallpaper in this vignette, creating a striking spot to mix a drink. The chair rail offers a traditional touch, complementing the wallpaper. While the gold bar cart is the perfect touch of glam.
This vignette offers a modern take on traditional vintage botanical prints with the graphic addition of blush tones. Paired with ambient lighting from the wall scones, the plush bench offers the perfect spot to tie a shoe, organize a bag or simply take a moment to yourself.
The perfect mossy green paint paired with a gold étagère creates a look that is classic and well-heeled. The streamlined chair adds a modern touch and the perfect spot to curl up with a good book.
This fun vignette was inspired by the beautiful patterned floor tile. Pulling the blue form the tile creates a space that is cohesive, colourful and fun, without being overwhelming. The white furniture brightens the vignette, while touches of black help to ground the space.
Make an Entrance
This entry way makes a lasting impression. Wall moulding and textured ceramic tiles offer a neutral backdrop that is layered in character and charm. While a rustic console table offers the perfect spot to drop keys or mail.
Charming flamingos grace the walls of this whimsical little girl’s room. The white night stand with brass accents offers a mature element that keeps the vignette from feeling too childish.
White on white is anything but boring when embellished with beautiful panel moulding. The architectural detail offers depth and character, while the classic table and chairs, create a charming spot to enjoy a croissant or two.
