Before and After Photos

Happy Tuesday!

With everything going on I thought I would share some before and after photos of some of our work this year. Transformations can inspire us.  Below are some photos of how we transformed some rooms with paint, vacant staging, and renovations. Take a look!

Ways To Style Your Bed Before Selling

Happy Tuesday!

Styling your bed before photos is always nice. If you are prepping your home for sale don’t forget about the bed! Photos are always taken to capture the master bedroom bed. A properly styled bed not only looks great for photos but it shows buyers that you have taken the time to prep your home for sale.

Taking the extra steps and preparing your property properly makes a difference. Even in todays Ottawa hot housing market. You do want your property to look good.  I have had clients ask for photos on how we style our beds when staging. Below are few examples! Take a look!

Benjamin Moore 2020

Happy Tuesday!

Take a look at some great paint colours from Benjamin Moore’s 2020 colour collection. If you are looking for a warm yellow then BM Golden Straw is a great choice.

City Loft by Sherwin Williams

Sherwin Williams City Loft is a beautiful warm white with grey undertones. While it is warm white, it is also so fresh looking. It is a great paint colour and can work well with light or dark coloured floors. I chose a white for the trim and baseboards making sure the trim was a crisp white with no yellow undertones to it. Have a look!

City Loft looks great with taupes, whites and blacks. I used the paint colour in my latest showcasing.

10 Beach Inspired Paint Colours

Happy Monday!

You don’t have to live close to the coast to enjoy beach inspired paint colours. There are so many colours that can evoke a coastal feel for the home.

Think of different shades of earth tones found in sand, shades of blue and green from the ocean and what we draw as inspiration from sea shells, coral and the various colours of stones.

Here are 10 beach inspired paint colours that will make your home feel like you are on vacation. Just think, you may not want to leave during our winter months! Here are my Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore picks!

Hardwood and A Home Office Makeover

Happy Tuesday!

With all of us working from home, a home office would be nice to have. We have been using our dining room table for work, but when your home has an open floor plan things can look messy. Our spare bedroom was for my dad who would spend weekends with us. He is now in a long term care facility. Making a spare bedroom into a home office makes sense for us now.

Our winters are long and I want our office to look bright even during our long winter months. I am keeping my desk but adding some much needed storage for books, a printer etc. A new ceiling light and a coat of paint should finish the room off nicely. Here are some photos, we are just getting started!
