Summer is great for a weekend project. I myself have been enjoying this gorgeous summer weather with a restoration project. I am in the midst of restoring a beautiful dining room table and chairs to be placed in a 1950’s dining room. The space was renovated with all the original moldings, casings and wooden floors. I loved the idea of capturing the true essence of the room and recreating what the craftsmen were trying to achieve at the time of the house’s construction.
The project itself is going according to plan with the table refinished and two out of six chairs reupholstered and refinished. The room has been repainted a beautiful earthy green with a dark sunny yellow as the accent colour. The entire room’s trim is done in a crisp white to give the space a clean look. Chandeliers were restored and accented in gold with the ceiling medallions sporting the same gold and white finish. Ivory window covering were installed to complete this Traditional design. The elements of design of the overall space complement each other and come together in a unique way.
Canada has been gifted with many talented designers in all provinces and territories. In the pages of this June/July issue of Canadian Home Trends Magazine, relish beautiful spaces ranging in style and colour. I am confident all our readers will find a space that truly speaks to their tastes.
One of the spaces featured was designed by Glen Peloso of HGTV’s Restaurant Makeover and Take This House and Sell It. Glen, one of Canada’s most talented and versatile designers will walk us through his latest project in Toronto. It is truly a must read.
Summer is short and sweet; therefore enjoy your summer projects while the weather permits. If you are planning to visit your vacation home, bring your Canadian Home Trends along. It makes a great read on the dock on a nice sunny day.
