Colorful Home Tour | Summer 2020 | BD Interior Interior Design
Welcome to It’s a Colorful Life Summer home tour organized by Jewel from Jeweled Interiors and Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles! If you're hopping by from My Eclectic Nest , I'm so glad you're here and I cannot wait to give you a tour. If you are new to the blog, my name is Brenda, lead designer of BD Interior Design; an interior design studio here in Toronto Canada.
This Summer, I’m joining a group of other colorful decor lovers as we share our homes. So, if you love color or like to pepper in color here and there for a fresh look, then grab your Summer drink and join me. Before we get started, here's some background on my home. This is a new construction Town home with multi-levels. I must say vertical living is new to me and I love it. We moved into the home six months ago and we've gotten a lot done.
This Entryway was one of my first projects in our home. You’ll see that there’s a cross between contemporary and modern aesthetics. My home ranges from bright and airy to bold pops of color. My entryway is bold because when you walk in, I want you to get a little bit of that wow factor. I also wanted this area to be super functional; there's no closet so adding hooks, and a seated bench is a great way to greet guest and make them feel at home.
When designing your home, it is important to have a plan and know which room/area you want to prioritize. The next area I designed was my living space.. This area feels calm, and color is added through Artwork and florals.
The coffee table being the hub of the living space is well curated. Because this area is more subtle, adding textures with these dried pampas, DIY vase and beaded garland is a great way to add interest.
The contrast between bold and neutral adds to balance.. The best part of the living area is that the windows are South facing and elicits great natural lighting.
Our living space is open concept and flows nicely into the kitchen for a cohesive look.. We've made some minor changes to the kitchen such as changing out the faucet and hardware to brass. We also added pendant lighting to compliment the acrylic chairs.
The next space we updated was our basement den; we turned this space into an office. Hail to this Navy blue color by Benjamin Moore. We can see why blue is the Pantone color of the year. If you are afraid to go dark with your wall paint, then Navy is a safe option. And how fabulous is this artwork, it really inspires me to look like a boss babe 24/7 and rock red lipstick.
For our finale, here is the room that gets all the glory in this home. I entered the One Room Challenge in Spring and decided to tackle the bedroom of my girls age (6) and (4). Take note, these two were the most challenging clients I've ever had, EVER. They were quite demanding with the colour scheme and impatient that this project would take 8 weeks. So after my initial consultation with these clients whereby they finally agreed to have a pink room if "hot pink" this was the outcome. For more on the reveal of this room click here
This rug inspired the accent colours for the custom wood pieces. I really wanted to draw inspiration and highlight the subtle blues from the rug into the wood. Studiogokule has been instrumental in customizing these beautiful pieces to complete the design.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your time here.
