Some important colour tools we can all use....

After the presentation, we took our time browsing the 4 floors of the most beautiful furniture displayed in vignettes and in some cases enhanced by paint treatments from Benjamin Moore. I would love an entire home decorated in this great furniture. They carry dozens of furniture lines, accessories, etc. It is worth a drop in just to get inspiration and better yet, treat yourself to something fabulous!

I am in love with this incredibly decadant and matching lav from Axor.
http://www.hansgrohe.ca/ I could really imagine relaxing in a space like this.
Napoleon Fireplaces had many gas and
electric styles on display, many that were
contemporary in design.

Well I really got into the Holiday spirit this year. I was honoured to attend the most incredible wedding I have ever been to - A Holiday Wedding for a niece the week before Christmas. It was spectacular!!
This venue recaptures the elegant design and sophistication of a majestic facility .
The balcony level has been recreated into a swank cocktail lounge. One level down, a spectacular ballroom - dining and dancing - evokes the romance of the old movies of days gone by.
They had the most elegant decor in the colors of their wedding - white, black and red. You really felt that you were back in the 30's hollywood glamour from the moment you entered the venue. Very classy event with fab food, great entertainment and of course the most beautiful bride and handsome groom. The did their first dance together all alone on the dance floor amid millions (ok not millions) but lots of twinkling lights and candles. All of the guests were up on the balcony level enjoying cocktails when the curtains were drawn and pouf! there they were below us looking magnificent. During their dance a video of their day was playing on the large movie screens which made it all the more like a fantasy. Well done Cara and Evangelos! So glad I could be part of your special day.
For a decorator this was like being in a candy store - so much to see and admire. The tables were decorated with black velvet burn out fabric, white with a 2' tall slender square vase filled with red berries, black branches with tiny white flowers and palm branches. The head table had black velvet skirting along the front and the attendants assembled their red rose ball bouquets along the edge - quite incredible.
I wanted to take it all in. I didn't want to leave!!
