Plants for the Homes

Air Filtering Plants

Florist Mum and the peace lily took the top spots when it comes to air cleaning.  They are both effective at removing amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and ammonia from the air.  Recommendation is having at least one plant per 100 square feet of space. 

The Snake plant is another really popular air-purifying house plant because they’re beautiful and basically impossible to kill — the perfect option if you’re a neglectful young adult.

The Bamboo Palm -This air-purifying palm thrives in shady indoor spaces so it’s a great addition your bedroom or bathroom, especially if you’re going for tropical ~island~ vibes.

Dumb canes come in a variety of beautiful multicolored leaf patterns and they’re super easy to grow and keep as house plants. But they’re actually called dumb canes because of their poisonous effect when eaten, which can slur or stop speech and even close the throat and be fatal in large quantities.  So please make sure to keep them away from young children and pets.

Our Top 5 Designer Pet Peeves

Our Design Centre experts know how to size up a room at first sight.  Not only can they visualize what the bones of the home will look like in the end result.  They can also fully furnish spaces and envision exactly what the room will look like with furniture.  We thought we would share these common mistakes that happen every day when it comes to interior decorating/design.  These are the little things that we notice immediately!

Poorly positioned art– This has to be my number one pet peeve! I cant stand seeing art poisoned to high.  it should be eye level and not all the way up the wall. To be safe the best height to hang your art would be 57″ front the floor.  If it’s over a sofa or bed remember to hang it about an arms width above the back of the sofa.wrong art
Floating Rug- This is when your rug is too small for the space.  Make sure when rug shopping that you find one that extends to under each piece of furniture in the seating area. This brings the seating area into one and will give you that complete look.  You don’t want it floating on its own in the center.

Matching Everything– Matching furniture sets whether it be for the bedroom, living or dining room.  Rooms that have been purchased from a single source always give the feeling that its missing something and lacking in character.  We encourage you to take your time when furniture shopping.  Pick pieces that compliment one another, similar to how you would choose your wardrobe pieces.

Skimpy Curtains- What is worse than having no curtains?  Curtains that are too short for the window itself.  It is very important that you measure correctly and let curtains touch the floor.  Also another tip, hanging your curtain rod as high as possible under crown molding for example, will help you achieve the look of a taller ceiling.drapes shortVS high and long

Clutter or Bare Spaces-  Make sure you have enough in the space but not too much.  I prefer to use large pieces when it comes to styling accessories instead of having multiple smaller nick knacks everywhere.  You want to make sure that everything is balanced, it definitely will make the room look more put together.Before VSafter
