Chair Affair Fundraiser

Another Chair Affair is upon us.. a fundraiser for The Furniture Bank, an organization which provides furnishings and home goods for those who need a helping hand. This year the event is being held at CasaLife on October 28th. You can bid on this chair, help the charity and have a one of a kind adorable chair in your home. Tickets and more information is available online 

 

What attracted me to the chair was its delicate and feminine look ..the back detailing has an hourglass look and though it is delicate, the chair has a strong presence. I love Paris and its bold expression, so Moulin Rouge was

My inspiration for the chair. I chose a red , raised velvet damask which is rich and decadent, finished it with a saffron colours silk piping and painted the chair in a sexy, high gloss red paint called Shmooze from Para.

Style Inspiration

A 'Designer Brain' is something I have always had...as a kid, I was never bored because of my constant appreciation and wonder of the world around me..never mind that my strict parents did not allow me to be 'bored'...otherwise, something would be found for me to do.

Last week I was out on my morning workout, while taking a break to stretch , I spied a branch which had a cornucopia of colour, texture and a strange kind of elegance....

Ofcourse my mind started wandering and visualizing the result of my inspiration..... Below is the S T Y L E INSPIRATION which resulted from this experience... all items are listed on my Pintrest Board with links.

The subtle blues and peachy pinks I saw seemed so elegant contrasted with the harsh texture of the woody branch... It translated as a look which is glamorous, edgy, fun and comfortable.

 

 

 

 

#GESlateDreamKitchen

Designing other people's dreams is my job and I LOVE it... my own dream spaces tend to change as I am exposed to more products and ideas through my various work and networking experiences.

This year, GE extended an opportunity to designers to create their 'dream kitchen'using at least one GE Slate appliance ... this got me thinking, dreaming and pondering... here is my result:

My Dream Kitchen using Slate appliances from GE..... #GESlateDreamKitchen

An open concept kitchen with finishes evoking the elegance of Old Paris, while embracing the contemporary North American sensibilities. This kitchen is casual, yet formal, utterly livable but very sophisticated..this kitchen is for someone who LOVES to cook and eat..., someone who appreciates craftsmanship and quality in all materials.. This is a kitchen which is welcoming and keeps you coming back for more fabulousness.....
