Newsletter: July 27th, Styling with Vintage

STYLING WITH VINTAGE
Decorating with VINTAGE comes from our innate need for a connection to the past, to believe in a story, and create a sense of history in the space we inhabit. 
  • Above was made with the new IOD Sprigs Decor Stamp and Antibes Chalk Paint™ clipped into one of our available vintage frames.
Vintage Frames are works of art on their own with their elaborate carvings and timeworn patina. Sometimes the mirror or art is missing, which creates opportunities for creating your own one of a kind statement piece.
  • Frames starting at $22
If you use a bit of Chalk Paint™ like below, you can create a beautiful gallery space with empty frames! We have lots to choose from so come get your favorites.
Vintage Suit Cases
Vintage Suit Cases stacked can make a fun coffee table with storage. Again you could use the Chalk Paint™ to change the look to match your decor. This white one has little feet added too! So cute!
Black Suite Case $40
Grain Stripe Case $85
Decanters
Mouthwash or dish soap in a decanter is just so pretty!
Put together a collection of different shapes and sizes of vintage decanters in the middle of a table and add candlesticks to them for a beautiful centerpiece! Or you can place a few roses in them and add to your nightstand for a gorgeous vase.
Vintage Silver and China
These vintage pieces make great collection holders. Paint brushes never looked so good! Shells collected on a family vacation can sit on a bed of moss for a reminder of time well spent.
Doors, crates, books and so much vintage!
Love getting lost in a great book? Set up a comfy reading nook like this one above. Place a plush chair by a window for plenty of natural light, and set up a serene scene with bouquets of wildflowers in tin vessels. Vintage books add a perfect decorative touch to the table even if you decide to read something a bit more modern. (I think we even have this same crate here in the store!)
Annie Sloan and Ikea Hack...
Did you know you can make new look old? There are a number of "Ikea Hacks" on Pinterest using Annie Sloan products. The one we are sharing today uses Dark Wax.
Did you know you can Dark Wax on raw wood instead of a stain? Above they have added a little stencil too! So pretty
If you pull the drawer out and turn it around, then you have your full drawer front to add a knob and library drawer plate too!
Handbags For All Styles
Designed in Ontario
Cross-body, Backpacks, Wallets and Handbags that you would want to wear every day! Products with the highest quality standard at an affordable price.
Come try then on! We have more colours too.

Styling with Vintage
We love to decorate that's not a secret 😉 but did you know we generally build our design around a vintage piece. We love vintage for many reasons but keeping our earth cleaner through keeping items out of landfills is definitely on top of the list.
Watch The Idea Ladies inspire us in creating different vignettes using vintage finds!

DREAMY INTERIOR STYLES FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE
The number of people working from home is greater than ever before.
Whether you work from home full time or occasionally put in some extra hours over the weekend, you need to create a space where you can get your head down and feel inspired.
We LOVE both of these inspiring offices above. When we break it down and look at the bones of these spaces we think Chalk Paint™!
Reclaim vintage furniture and make it something you will love with a quick coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™. See all the colours HERE
Feminine or masculine...One desk styled two ways. This piece was finished in Paris Grey and the top is Dark Waxed.
Desk $285- Buy it HERE
It's not the size of the office or creative space that makes any difference to anyone... it is the passion that lives inside the walls: the ideas for decorating, organizing, and creating: the natural lighting; and the work surface.
We have beautiful industrial desks that fit into any corner of the home...
Tables work great as work surfaces too!
Don't forget to add storage into your space.
Working From the Kitchen Table!
Looking through issues of "Where Women Create" magazine, it's inspiring how many women have been featured who created businesses, always have a kitchen table at the heart of their personal and inspired space.
After all... isn't the kitchen table one of the most important, most memorable places in our entire lives? The place of family and friends, the place of sharing good food and the day, the place of encouraging discussions and shared dreams? Why wouldn't each of us choose to work on something that is more that a flat surface. So many of us choose to work on kitchen tables regardless of which room they are the center of.
Make your home office a place to Create a Beautiful Life!
Your office says: "I write here, I create here, I am inspired here, I am safe here, and I am filled with gratitude and hope right here! My kitchen table or desk is really all that I need to do all that I want to do and be all that I want to be!
Working from home?
Let's be real... if you are working from home you are wearing your PJ pants! Or if you are like Jeannine's daughter, you just wear them into work! haha
They are great over a bathing suit too. New patterns have just arrived. See them all HERE

Newsletter: July 13th, Textile Texture

Textile Texture
You know how sometimes you can just look at a room and know that something is missing? All the components of a complete design are there – color scheme, furniture, décor items – but the entire room just feels a little flat. If this scenario feels familiar, you are not alone and we might just have the answer you need: texture.
For some reason, texture seems to always to be an afterthought when it comes to interiors and we’re here to change that. Our reasoning: Texture is the thing that makes a room pop. It’s what brings a perfectly fine design up to enviable levels.
Create inviting interiors with layered rugs, chenille, ticking fabrics, weathered woods, and dimensional artwork.
Add Texture with Cushions, Throws and Rugs.
Think Linen, Jute, Chenille, Embroidery, Tassels, Fringe...
Choosing complementary toss pillow textures, rather than one specific texture, gives your room a soft layered appeal that's cozy and comfortable.
Our new Linen bedding, with its soft texture, natural wrinkled look, and airy feel, is the epitome of calm. Any toss pillows you add will pair perfectly.
Speaking of Linen...
Actually, this dress just looks like linen. It's a hemp-cotton blend, made in Canada. Great Texture! See more fashion online HERE

Newsletter: July 6th, Coastal Comfort

Coastal Comfort
We love the idea of bringing the seaside into the home. Coastal is bright and breezy, sun-kissed and salty. Coastal colours tend to be washed and faded whites, blues, turquoises, and greens, but you can go bolder and be inspired by the colours of the oceans and tropical seas.
Think vivid blues and intense turquoise, as well as the bleaker greys and deep green-blues of the northern seas. Don't forget sandy-coloured neutrals and driftwood whites and greys too.
Get this look in your kitchen with Pure White and Provence Chalk Paint™

Newsletter: June 22nd, Chalk Paint™ and Your Laundry Or Bathrooms!

Chalk Paint™ & Your Laundry and/or Bathroom!
Chalk Paint™ is a must when updating your laundry room or bathroom!
It sticks to most surfaces with no sanding or priming! It dries in about 20 minutes. Has no smell. Cleans up with water. Is easy to use. Won't break the bank!
Try a bold colour! The laundry room and bathroom are a great place to try using more colour.
Stenciling the floor will add some character to make your room a place you will enjoy spending some time in!
You can mix Chalk Paint™ colours easy at home to create a custom colour!
To get this look, mix Svenska Blue and Pure White.
Farmhouses should look like they've evolved over time: Matchy-matchy is a no-no. Your furniture should not look like it could have all been bought at the same store. 
Notice that both of these rooms above have some natural wood as well as painted surfaces. You can seal raw wood with Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax for this look!
Whether your bathroom vanity is in great shape and is just tired or you are starting fresh and customizing a furniture piece as a vanity, Chalk Paint™ is the perfect pick!
Check out Natalie's Bathroom Makeover:
Natalie picked Svenska Blue with sealed with Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax. What an update!
More Inspiration:
Loving all the vintage touches with the Pure White Chalk Paint™ Vanity!
Chalk Paint™ for any style!
Whether your style is Bohemian Glam or Rustic Farmhouse, both of these looks can be created with Chalk Paint™.
Don't have a vanity? Add a piece of furniture into the room for extra storage. This piece on the right can be recreated with Duck Egg Chalk Paint™ with Clear and Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax

Newsletter: June 15th, Farmhouse Styling

Farmhouse Style
What Is Farmhouse Style?
Farmhouse decorating is a style that is warm, cozy, relaxing, and full of charm and character while being organized around a central notion of practicality.
Farmhouses should look like they've evolved over time: Matchy-matchy is a no-no. Your furniture should not look like it could have all been bought at the same store. 
Also, a home decorated in this style should consist of hand-me-downs and flea market finds combined with newer pieces. For instance, an old harvest table and Shaker cabinets combine beautifully with stainless steel appliances and modern light fixtures in a farmhouse kitchen.
Distress Furniture Like a Pro
When giving an old piece of furniture a fresh coat of Chalk Paint™, it’s fitting to distress it a bit, so the new paint feels natural on the vintage or antique piece. 
Farmhouse Decorating Ideas
Here are some elements of décor and decorating ideas that will help you achieve a great farmhouse style:
  • Barn wood and shiplap
  • Butcherblocks and apron sinks
  • Grain stripes and throw rugs
  • Vintage furniture and distressed painted finishes
  • Farm animal art
  • Wicker, rattan and natural weathered woods
Don't forget to add a countertop Herb Garden.
Put together a rustic herb garden in distressed terra cotta pots with Chalk Paint™ on your countertop for a lively — and delicious— addition to the kitchen.
Try adding a Farmhouse Door Headboard like below.
Crafting your own headboard is easier than you may think. With the help of a rustic door, some Chalk Paint™ and a few other materials, you can give your bedroom a mega-makeover in an afternoon.

Newsletter: June 1st, Kitchen Inspo!

Kitchen Inspo!
You probably spend more time in your kitchen than any other room in the house, so it’s quite natural to feel it needs a refresh. Or perhaps you’ve just bought a new house and aren’t able to spend money on new built-in cabinets just yet. But redecorating your kitchen needn’t cost an arm and a leg. You can use Chalk Paint™ to repaint the doors on your kitchen cabinets and drawers quickly, easily – and with minimal spend.
The Kitchen above can be recreated with Paris Grey and Pure White Chalk Paint™ and the kitchen below is in Oxford Navy.
So what equipment do you need? Simply arm yourself with the Chalk Paint colour of your choice and a Flat Brush for a smooth finish. You’ll need to seal in your paint work when you’re done. For a traditional mellow finish, use Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax. For extra durability, try Chalk Paint™ Lacquer instead.
To recreate this look try using Graphite on the cabinets, Pure White on the Range hood, and Dark Wax on the raw wood.
To recreate this white kitchen use Old White on the Cabinets and Dark Wax on the raw wood.
Stencil your backsplash area with
Chalk Paint™.
Here are some pics for Carrie's kitchen all done!!
Carrie used Pure White Chalk Paint™ on her upper cabinets and Athenian Black on her lower cabinets. She sealed with Matte Lacquer
Carrie's stools are painted with Arles Chalk Paint™. Her floating shelves are finished in Dark Wax.
A peek into Jeannine's kitchen
Feeling like you need a change but your cabinets don't need a makeover just yet... Look around at things like stools, chairs, doors and accessories. Chalk Paint™ will give you a new look quickly and easily.
Jeannine's cabinets are complemented with Chalk Paint™ on the stools.
Original White was layered over Country Grey.
Your pantry door is a great place to add a pop of colour. Here, Jeannine painted her door in Duck Egg Blue.
STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO PAINTING KITCHEN CUPBOARDS WITH CHALK PAINT™
  1. First, remove the doors and any hardware from your cabinets if you wish. Give them a wash with soapy water. No harsh chemicals needed unless they have a layer of cooking grease. Use a Krud Kutter or equivalent and rinse well.
  2. Paint the cupboards in your chosen Chalk Paint™ colour, using an Annie Sloan Flat Brush for a smooth finish.
  3. Leave to dry before painting a second coat of Chalk Paint™.
  4. Once dry, wax the doors using Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax and a Chalk Paint™ Wax Brush. Remove any excess with a lint-free cloth.
  5. Leave the wax to harden before applying another coat, allowing at least a day. You’ll want to wax the doors two to three times to make your finish really strong.
  6. *Optional* – for a polished finish, leave overnight before buffing the wax with a cotton cloth.
  7. Once the wax has dried, the doors are ready to go back on your cabinets. Just remember that the wax can take up to two weeks to fully harden (this is known as curing). You can use them in this time, but be gentle.

You might notice a change in the store layout next time you are in. Half of the bottom floor is transformed into a workshop space that allows two things!
