Our home was originally built in 1996, and the finishes are definitely outdated.

It's a split-level home where our Family Room is below grade, and our 2nd floor Bathroom is just off the Family Room. It's most commonly used by my husband and me, as it's the only Bathroom in the home with a standing shower. While it still functions perfectly, it's showing its age in certain areas.


I'm looking forward to breathing new life into it by updating all of the fixtures and finishes. I know just as anyone how transformative a coat of paint can be, so I'm so looking forward to painting the whole space Benjamin Moore White Dove.


Here's a sneak peek of the inspiration and the materials I've sourced:







I kept everything pretty understated as I wanted the floor to be the star of the show. I selected the Wicker Matte Porcelain Tile from Laura Ashley in this beachy blue. I love how it adds both colour and interest while adding a gorgeous graphic quality to the space. The pattern creates such a gorgeous flower pattern which I thought was playful for a second bathroom.




I'm excited to see how it all comes together! Stay tuned for more updates! And don't forget to follow me on Instagram to see all of the behind-the-scenes action!

Managing an interior design project effectively is crucial for ensuring a smooth and successful outcome. Here are five important tips for project management in interior design:


Clearly Define the Scope: Begin by establishing a detailed project scope that outlines the specific objectives, deliverables, and constraints of the interior design project. Clearly define the client's requirements, budget, and timeline. This document will serve as a reference point throughout the project, helping to prevent scope creep and ensuring everyone involved understands the project's parameters.


Create a Detailed Project Plan: Develop a comprehensive project plan that includes all the tasks, milestones, and deadlines. Break down the project into phases and allocate resources accordingly. Use project management tools and software to help with scheduling, task assignment, and progress tracking. A well-structured plan provides a roadmap for the project team and helps manage time effectively.


Communication is Key: Establish open and transparent communication channels with the client, project team members, contractors, and any other stakeholders. Regularly update everyone on the project's progress, discuss any issues or changes, and be responsive to feedback. Clear communication helps to build trust, manage expectations, and address potential problems before they escalate.


Budget Management: Keep a close eye on the budget throughout the project. Track expenses, compare them against the initial budget, and adjust as necessary. Be transparent with the client about costs and potential overruns, providing detailed breakdowns of expenses. Effective budget management is crucial for the overall success of the project and maintaining a positive client relationship.


Risk Management: Identify potential risks early in the project and develop strategies to mitigate them. This could include factors such as delays in material delivery, unexpected structural issues, or changes in client preferences. Having contingency plans in place will help minimize the impact of unforeseen events and keep the project on track.


Remember, flexibility is essential in interior design project management. Be prepared to adapt to changes while maintaining a focus on the project's goals and client satisfaction. Regularly reassess the project plan and make adjustments as needed to ensure a successful outcome.
