Winter White

16 Jan

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone had a successful week and have some fun plans for the weekend! Unfortunately the temperature here is too cold for me outside to be motivated to go outside and do anything. Instead I decided to put together this post about using white in your design choice for the house. Many people are intimidated by white because they are afraid of it looking boring or giving off a cold feeling. However, using the appropriate textures and shades of white, dependent on the space it can feel extremely cozy and elegant. Take a look at some inspiration pictures I pulled from pinterest and maybe you will dare to try to go white!

For this kitchen the white cupboards are accented perfectly against the black counter top and the beautiful silver wall tiling. Using these bold colours will be enough of a statement without having to accessorize the kitchen at all which inevitably clutters up space.winterwhite

White in the bedroom may seem like a huge hassle but it is well worth it! You will feel as if you are in your private hotel suite every night and it also allows you to change up throw pillows or other accessories seasonally for something new.winterwhite4

I don’t think anyone could argue they wouldn’t want to curl up in this living room for an intimate night in.

Using white marble in the bathroom allows for easy clean up after bath time and will bring your mind to another place while you relax during your “me” time.

If you are still hesitant about going the all white route, you can add a statement piece in the room, done below with emerald bar chairs.

Let the Vitamin D in!

8 May

Hi Glamourites!

The weather the past few days has been absolutely beautiful and all I wanted to do was be outside enjoying the sunshine! If you are stuck inside doing work but you still want to enjoy those sunny days….the answer, windows!! I could not live in a house that doesn’t have any windows {or few of them}. I love to have natural light at all times and a beautiful view doesn’t hurt either. Here are some homes where they have incorporated lots of windows perfectly into the design. Let me know if you like xx Glamour Planner

In the bathroom it is incredibly important to have natural light for applying makeup. Often we will put on too much foundation or bronzer because we don’t have the correct lighting and when you leave the house it turns out you look like a cake!

Sometimes cooking dinner can be a pain but when you have skylights or big windows to fill your kitchen with vitamin D it makes the job much more enjoyable!

Okay I know you don’t want the sunrise waking you up at 5:30 in the morning which is why they invented curtains…but windows in the bedroom can be amazing and create a special place for you to wake up. Imagine how peaceful this setting would be as you great ready for bed or just want some quiet time to yourself?

Of course windows anywhere in the house work perfectly, especially where you will be entertaining guests. It’s a great way to show off your home and where you live!

Black is back

20 Mar

Hi Glamourites!

In the interior design world black is back! Grey and shades will stay in the loop and still be seen but black is making a dramatic statement. 2014 is all about creating a shock factor as well as keeping things modern. Black does just this and along with crisp white fixtures creating a powerful space. Enjoy the inspiration pictures below! xx Glamour Planner

Fresh + Clean

26 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend and taking some down time to relax and recharge. My weekend has been fairly quiet but also with a little fun of course. It has been freezing here which doesn’t make it very enjoyable to leave the apartment. With it being January we are always reminded about new beginnings and starting fresh…I have taken that same outlook and applied it to design and possible room interiors. If we have a clean environment, it will rub off on us and encourage us to be the same way. Hope you get some inspiration from these pictures xx Glamour Planner

The contrast between bold and simple in this living space is ideal, the straight lines from the chair frames, circle table and window rectangles. Then the juxtaposition using the black and white to make a dramatic but while still clean atmosphere.

Fresh&Clean

This bedroom makes me feel I am taken back a few centuries. The detailing in the moulding and the bed posts are beautifully rich and gives this a pristine vintage look. Fresh&Clean3

For a smaller{ish} living room space this is made very grand, thanks mainly to the high ceiling which also allows too for the dramatic  chandelier. In this case, where the room is smaller and gets an abundant amount of natural light, having only black & white is perfect. Fresh&Clean2

On a smaller scale, an office desk can feel much more organized and clean if it has a neutral colour pallet. Also consistency for supplies and accessories helps with the visual aesthetic of the space.     Fresh&Clean4

The bathroom is a very important room as it is the first place you go after waking up. You want that room to make you feel fresh and therefore come across that way in the design. Here the simple lines and warm tones from the wood create a welcoming and awakening area.

Hello Glamourites!

I hope {to all my Canadian’s} you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and managed to get through the week while still being stuffed with turkey! I know I still am. Thinking about the upcoming dark days of fall and winter upon us, I am even more drawn to this colour but I must say it is regardless one of my favourite colours. PINK. I know even if you aren’t a girly-girly it is still a fun colour to look at and brightens your day with a pop. Regardless of my future home’s theme I plan to have at least one room with some pink burst. I think it can add such an energy to a room and lift your spirits no matter the type of day you are having. Here are some fun spaces I think that the colour pink really works!             xx Glamour Planner

Normally that much of one colour in a hallway and doorways I would find too much but because you come from all white surroundings it creates a sense of light and excitement. pinkhallway

I would totally have this kitchen. It’s bright, energetic and creative. Everything you want for a kitchen space. pinkkitchen

For a more gentle pink in a dining room or living area this pale rose works well over the chandelier adding warmth.  pinkchandiller

Pink in a bathroom is a very good choice as it’s the first place you go once you wake up and you want something to give you a boost for the day. pinkbathroom

For a office space or a communal working space trying to be more industrial can still be a fun colour! pinkfurniture

Back to nature

13 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

It seems when fall comes around I am drawn again to natural tones, materials and fabrics for in my designs, my apartment and tastes. With the changing of the season colours start to appear in the trees and the warmth of orange and reds brighting up the streets. The autumn time allows for nature to be featured more than usual with such activities; pumpkin carving, apple picking, fire crackling and leafs for decor. So why not use natural wood all year long in your home to be a main focus in the design or function. These pictures highlight the beauty of wood in its natural element while fitting into different home styles and creating contrast. Hope everyone is transiting into fall better than I am xx Glamour Planner

This simple linear wood table is an ideal space for all uses and is set off ideally by the brick wall in the background. 79a95a8d076bf8b506f6da6a55570c25

I love how the wood bar top has been left natural at the ends and the shape curves as it instinctively would.  78b22eebba3e9ece4f391a2fbd711dbe

These puzzle piece like mats are very unique as you can create them as small or large you need for the function while creating a table interest. f8f03d1b8682740d836e0992cd8d2b8c

 

This space is a perfect example of how it is possible to mix the natural wood with soft fabrics and works well. 562907c718646adf31ec6d5a256555ce

I enjoy this whole bathroom vanity for the rustic feel and the bold wood mirror frames makes the statement in the space. 460ec9e0ede08b0575d59a9abd6eb611
