Bathroom & Kitchen Galleries PLUS Fab Electric Fireplaces

During the very busy time just before Christmas our GTA West Chapter had a fantastic time at our last meeting of 2013.  Thanks to Alina Butromeleva's (Showroom Manager, Vaughan) along with Patrick Pienkosz and several other staff,we were welcomed by our new affiliate Bathroom & Kitchen Galleries (our new affiliate member) into their fabulous showroom in Burlington.  They have several throughout the GTA.  

This event was a two part - the first being a very enlightening presentation by another of our wonderful affiliates - Jeanne Grier from Stylish Fireplaces by Huntington Lodge.  Jeanne offered many building, renovating and decorating tips with Electric Fireplaces. They have come a long way from the old days and are very Eco and cost effective which is very important,  not to mention they look great and offer styles from traditional to very contemporary. The electric fireplace of today is so realistic and can be moved to work in any area of the home.  Below are some pictures of both contemporary and traditional style electric fireplaces available.


The second part of our evening was geared to the gorgeous Bathroom & Kitchen products available and carried by B & K Galleries.  The showroom tour brought about many oohs and ahhhs from the decorators.

To top this off we were treated to a wonderful array of refreshments and incredible prizes.  Every decorator was given a bottle of wine to take home to celebrate the season.

Thanks so much to all at K & B.

Christmas Decor at the Annual St. Annual Christmas House Tour

This year I was one of the Interior Decorators to 'Deck' a house for the Annual St. Andrews Christmas House Tour in Oakville.  The owner, Shevawn Adams is a Registered Interior Designer and has done a fantastic job of keeping the historic home true to it's time while adding the necessary modern conveniences for today's lifestyle.  I was thrilled that she welcomed me into her home to decorate it for Christmas.  The theme I decided upon was kept minimal, using natural elements - Birds, Birch bark, natural greenery etc, so as to not compete with the architecture and artwork throughout the home.  The homeowner was pleased with the end result and so was I.  Hope you like it!!
