Views framed

panels are a cost effective way to get the dramatic drapery look and require less fabric and less sewing. I like to use decorative panels when using some other form of blind or shade for privacy and layer the two together.

Roman Shades are another popular style of window treatment today that will help to dress up your windows. They are especially good at visually adding height in your space. Installing a roman shade above a window frame will give the illusion that the window is much taller.

I personally like to layer my window treatments whenever I can. Opting for side panels and then some type of blind, whether Roman, Roller or Traditional Wood blinds though my favourite part of designing window treatments is selecting the fabric. Any window treatment can be made into a traditional or contemporary style depending on the type of fabric you choose. Today there are many places to find great fabric options that will offer great fresh patterns and texture. The fabric you choose will help pull the design of a room together. I always use drapery fabric as my inspiration and jumping off point for any decorating scheme. A great go to resource to look at is Maxwell Fabrics. Here you will find a vast array of styles and options perfect for any interior style as well as add in your much needed trending beautiful hardware from companies like Deco & Deco to finish the overall look.

Most people don’t like a cake without icing. A cake without icing looks naked! Window coverings in your home are the same as icing on a cake. Without window coverings a home looks oddly unfriendly. With the views unframed, the rooms will appear unfinished and cold.

window look wider, taller and bigger. They soften the cold look of a window and add warmth and texture to any space. Beyond aesthetics, drapes also provide a practical purpose. They can deliver darkness on demand and even keep your home cool in the summer and warm in winter.

Here are my designer tips on how to dress those panes of glass in style.

There are two ways to decorate with drapery:

My personal favourite for most windows is drapery. As a designer I believe drapes bring a warm aesthetic to your home, tying together the architecture of your home with the furnishings within. Drapery panels can magically make a

Fully closing drapery is where the drapes can be pulled closed across the entire window span to block light and provide privacy. Decorative side panels, on the other hand, won’t pull to cover the window but offer the illusion that they do. Side

With the right window fabric you too can create more visual interest and a luxurious feel in your home. Whatever type or style you choose, adding window treatments to your space is what elevates a nice house into a well designed home. THN

Getting the

GUEST ROOM ready for the Holidays The holidays are almost here. If you're lucky enough to have a guest room, chances are good that you'll be hosting someone there this holiday season. Of course, you want your guests to be comfortable. Here’s how to treat your guests like they’re staying at a Boutique Hotel with just enough conveniences to indulge their inner 5 class traveller but not enough space for them to move in! It’s all about the bedroom, having a nice retreat from the chaos is really what every guest craves.

create an inviting nightstand Just like at a hotel guests want a place to rest their water glass at night, place a book and even plug in their cell phone. Too often people select nightstands that are too small for the scale of their bed and often too short. It’s important that your guest can easily reach their personal items when sitting in bed without having to bend over.

Add in some festive touches and perhaps add an alarm clock and water glass and glass set. have a light for reading Unless your guest passes out from one too many glasses of mulled wine, they will likely want to read before going to sleep at night. Whether it be on an electronic device or a book. Make sure you have enough pillows and either a standard table lamp or an articulated reading light. Don’t rely on overhead lighting. You also want your guest to be able to turn that light out without stepping out of bed, just like in a fancy hotel. >>>

holidays

indulge in a comfortable mattress The one area you should never cheap out on is the mattress. The benefits and importance of a good night's sleep cannot be underestimated - you will want a well-rested guest the next morning. Look at Canadian companies like ENDY (endy.com) that offer the perfect balance of comfort and support with their foam mattresses and pillows at affordable prices that ships free directly to your door. No added hassle of going to the store, this bestselling mattress comes rolled up in box the size of a hockey bag and can be easily transported even to your cottage. No more sore backs and cranky mother-in-law!

block the light Drapery and window treatments are often overlooked all together in a guest room. A good night’s sleep can be interrupted by city lights or early sunrise and again you want your guests WELL RESTED! As a designer, I like to layer window treatments, one layer for privacy and the other for darkness. There is no one size fits all solution, but an easy option is a roller blind for privacy and fully closing blackout drapery to really block the pesky sunlight. Keep these tips in mind when designing an inviting retreat for holiday guests. Invest in quality and plan for function and your guests will be well rested and happy during their stay. Just don’t leave them too much room in the closet or they may never want to leave! Rebecca Hay, is the Principal Designer of Rebecca Hay Designs Inc.

Selecting the

TUB & VANITY for your bathroom Behind every great bathroom, is an even greater bathtub. The tub is the showpiece of the room, and for good reason. The room is named after this fabulous fixture, after all. As a designer, I am asked to assist design many bathrooms and I know the bathtub can make or break a bathroom design, so I encourage clients to give it the consideration it deserves - not to mention a little extra budget, if possible.

Victoria + Albert Pembroke Freestanding Bathtub

22


When shopping for a new bathtub, style and comfort are equally important. In other words, great bathrooms can't compromise on either. Some sleek, sculptural soaker tubs border on art, and come in a seemingly endless array of shapes, sizes, finishes and materials. Once you identify a look that you love, be sure to sit back (literally!) and give some thought to the tub's shape and size, and how these suit your shape and size. Sit inside it, and get a good feel for the tub's curves, height and interior angles. For this reason, I recommend buying a new bathtub in person, versus online.

Victoria + Albert’s new Pembroke Collection includes a freestanding bathtub (pictured below) featuring crisp lines, graceful curves, and a silhouette that tapers toward the base to occupy less floor space than its straight-sided counterparts. But don't be fooled, this tub is deep and dual-ended, allowing for ample space and soothing soaks for one - or two! The Pembroke is available in your choice of exterior trending finishes, including Gloss Black, Matte Black, Matte White, Stone Gray, Light Gray and Anthracite. Victoria + Albert Metallo 61 Quartz Washstand

Trending now is open shelved units one example of this seen is Victoria + Albert's latest Metallo quartz washstand distinguished by its unusual metal legs, featuring right-angle “tee joints” inspired by retro bathroom plumbing. The Metallo 61 Quartz design the most compact model offered, measures just 24 inches wide, making it ideal for smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. Of course, function also plays an important role when selecting the right bathroom vanity. Is this an ensuite for two, a private bathroom or a powder room? Will you be using this area for grooming or to apply makeup? Some other things to take into account include: door swing, traffic flow, plumbing, and location of other fixtures, like the toilet and tub. These will affect the vanity styles and specs best suited to you.

Victoria + Albert Pembroke Freestanding Bathtub

Like the bathtub, your vanity should be a showpiece. This is particularly true for small bathrooms and powder rooms, where there is little room to make a big splash. Look for vanities boasting distinctive features, be it a unique washbasin, a splashy faucet or a striking base, to give your bathroom a fashionable yet functional edge.

When browsing bathtubs and vanities, shop with both in mind. Remember that the most impactful statements are made by unified styles. You don't necessarily have to select matching fixtures, or even pieces from the same brand. The key is to ensure your selections have a common aesthetic, be it traditional, modern, colour or otherwise. The result will be a harmonious bathroom, where all the main elements sing the same tune.

SMART

Holiday Hacks The holidays should be a happy time, but between family get-togethers, grocery shopping and decorating, it’s sometimes hard to find enough time to get everything done. Fortunately, you can use the wifi-enabled iHome Smart Plugs available at the Home Depot Canada to make the holiday season a little easier. Pre-holiday prep When getting your home ready for the holidays, decorating the exterior can be a chilly experience. Skip the cold by plugging your lights or inflatables into a smart outlet and turn them on with the touch of a button. You can even use the plugs to turn on the slow cooker while you’re at work to save you time when cooking a large family meal.

Want your Christmas morning go off without a hitch? Connect and control appliances connected to your smart plug from any location to ensure the perfect start to your day. You can schedule your smart plugs to turn on the festive music early, have the coffee maker brewing and get the lights twinkling.

After Christmas Smart plugs aren’t just helpful on the holidays. Use them on a daily basis this winter to turn on lights during those short winter days or turn on the humidifier to prevent dryness. Create a “scene” in a full room by linking all your smart plugs together or while travelling use the “away” mode, which will set an entire room to your preference. THN
