I hope you all had a lovely Easter break!

This week is about innovative thinking! If you’re one who loves older traditional trim, but perhaps want to add a modern twist, try this approach breaking the lines with hidden doors and layered walls.  It breaks all the traditional rules. I love the idea of a door that cuts right through all the trim and becomes its own when opened, yet completely hides in disguise when closed. That’s an innovative twist to me!

How about tiling your stairs on the vertical face? I like this example of mixing patterns using black and white contrast tiles. It is a great way to liven up any boring stair!

I keep seeing vases with candles and this one is one of my favourite examples. Burn it for a couple hours and let the drips create some added character.

I’m a big fan of iron bed frames. We have one in our Master bedroom and I recently bought my daughter one for her room. With all the natural rustic in this room bottom left,  I love the simplicity of painting the window blue for a pop accent of colour. Simple, yet innovative in a rustic modern kind of way….. I’ve colour matched this blue for you….. 022-6 Mythic Sapphire Gem if you want to give it a try!

I always try to be innovative with each of my own projects. This week I’m showing some ‘clouds’ I recently installed as a divider between the living room and the custom wrought iron library behind.
