Rosita is back to share some of
her latest decorating adventures.
I’m back! Thank you Carin for welcoming me as a guest blog contributor once again.
I had an amazing opportunity in 2014 to work on a complete home renovation with clients moving from Toronto to Burlington. They wanted a bigger backyard and slower life pace for their twin girls and themselves. So they bought a bungalow that was still decorated circa 1970s. It needed a complete makeover!
Once the contractors were done their job (a two and a half month process), I could start mine! And voila, this is how the kitchen and dining room turned out:
Fresh, open and welcoming as you come through their front door! I helped them pick out Benjamin Moore paint colours for their kitchen cabinets and surrounding walls.
As well, I recommended the white submarine backsplash tiles with a light blue (the pictures don’t truly reflect the calm colour) and brown accent to wrap around.
My clients had already chosen the dining room light fixture so that was the colour scheme I decided to incorporate as well as in their living room. A mixture of yellow/grey/teal.
To blend the three open rooms together through the curtains, accents and accessories. The rustic furniture grounds the dining room while a framed flag from Kenya (given to them by their sister) complements the colour scheme in place. A unique piece to anchor that wide open wall space as you head downstairs.
Stay tuned … we’ll unveil the living room in our next Blog post.
