Hello and Happy New Year!!
Welcome to my blog for 2014. First and foremost, I hope everyone enjoyed their New Years celebration! I would like to take this opportunity to wish my family, friends, clients and colleagues a happy and healthy year ahead.
Now...Lets talk trends for the coming year!!
Whoever said one mans trash is another mans treasure must have been a professional vintage shopper! Be fair-warned, vintage furniture shopping isn't for everyone. You must be well equipped with an eye for finding diamonds in the rough and a generous amount of patience, otherwise your efforts may go in vein.
One of my personal favorite vintage collections is shown in the image above.
I think vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces will be highly sought after this year in home decor. It's great finds like these that keep people asking, "Where did you get that?". I adore the hot pink chair fabric in the entry, that REALLY makes a statement! Accompanied by a fabulous black chinoiserie dresser and a few interesting pieces of artwork on the wall above, you've created a sophisticated focal point for your entrance. Notice nothing is matchy-match here! An eclectic mix of interesting pieces make a very attractive visual staging first seen when entering this home.
To help you with your search, here are a few great spots in Toronto to find vintage furniture for your home;
"Around the Block" is located at 150 Lesmill rd. with is a great mixture of contemporary and antique furniture and lots of interesting unique pieces.
"Atomic design" is located at 965 Queen St. W. which offers clients art , lighting, modern glass and objects from the 60s to the 80s, all restored.
While strolling down Queen Street west check out "Black Pug DMK" which is located at 1712 Queen St. W. offering another great collection of interesting antique pieces.
When contemplating fresh decor in your home this year, ask yourself "what change could I make to improve the overall appeal of my home?".
