I adore my office. It has come together slower than anticipated but every piece I add in makes it feel warm and safe. I have absolutely no design sense so I need to give all the credit to some local businesses.
First, as soon as clients walk into my house I get compliments on the paint. I had NOTHING to do with it, other than some spots on the floor where I failed to clean up quick enough. Nadine, from Roane’s Paint and Wallpaper, came into our home to help us pick out all our colours and even told us how much paint to buy so that we didn’t have to run in and out of town 1805968 times while painting. A huge plus to the Benjamin Moore paint they sell? It barely smells like paint so we could paint on Monday and have clients in the house on Tuesday without worrying about anyone getting headaches from fumes. Next time you want to make an impact with your paint colours don’t hesitate to check them out. Go in to chat with any of the super friendly and helpful staff or have Nadine into your home like we did for a colour consultation!
Second, Uxbridge is home to the most perfect little pillow shop called Small Town Flair by Mel (insert link). Again, Mel helped pick out fabrics and find combinations that add style to my office. She found creative ways to add fabrics onto existing furniture and immediately clients loved the way things looked. She does beautiful custom work but also has a huge variety of pillows (hand painted) in her office and online.
Third is the least local option, but Reva was an Uxbridgian when I first met her. In fact most of Uxbridge probably recognizes her from the Tin Cup , if you awake enough to see who was handing you your coffee! Now she lives a bit further north and most of my admiring of her work has to be done through her website http://www.daughterziondesigns.com/. She is the creator of the beautiful calendar I use in my office. Her colourful designs and lovely quote selections add beauty to my office and get lots of compliments on a daily basis. With Christmas just around the corner it’s a great time to check out her selections online and do some shopping from home.
