Happy Friday!! Great news: I’m quoted in the November issue of Canadian Living Magazine. I was contacted way back in late spring to offer some tips on “sexing” up your bedroom, and I totally forgot about it until a neighbour mentioned seeing the article. HA!
The article is called Sexual Healing and is written by freelance writer Rosemary Counter. In the article I talk about how to set the scene in your bedroom with some helpful tips. Below is a screenshot of the first page of the article.
There’s also other great advice in this article , along with other great topics inside the November issue, so hurry and pick it up!! Enjoy!
I’m a huge fan of the Batman movie franchise and am really looking forward to TDKR when its released July 20th. So when I came across this photo on Facebook, I couldn’t resist posting it on here.
So tell me, do you love it or hate it?? What do you think of the bat cave inspired walls? What about the headboard? Hit the comment button and let me know!!
Have a fabulous weekend!
I love anything purple and when I saw this stunning purple bedroom designed by Annsley McAleer of Annsley Interiors, I was instantly hooked!
Everything about this room is a Glam Slam! From the floral headboard, to its curvy sexy shape and the solid purple banding that give it that extra oomph!! Love the fabric of the long bolster cushion with the hits of gold and orange. And the beautiful gold-leaf chandelier is the perfect finishing touch….like long dangly earrings accessorizing the perfect outfit.
The ever-popular x-bench is a staple everyone should have in their home. The rich details of the gold mirror above bring out the gold and orange in the fabric. By painting the legs purple this traditional looking bench now has a glamorous edge to it. I think it is absolutely perfect!
And then…..these chairs…Oh la la!!! I think I’ve died and gone to heaven! I’ve been trying to find out the name of this style of chair so if you know what this chair is called please let me know. Are they not stunning or what? The purple stripe detailing and piping give it that glam chic look I love!! And any mirrored furniture is definitely a friend of mine!
So what do you think? Are you in love with this bedroom as much as I am? Would you have these chairs in your home? I know I would!!
If you are looking to glamorize your bedroom with some purple touches, then send me a message through email, Facebook or Twitter! I would love to help!
In the latest issue of Dabble Magazine, a gorgeous Arizona home designed by one of my favourite interior designers, Jamie Herzlinger is featured. And because it is so glamorous, I thought it would be perfect for a Glamour Friday post.
This stunning 19th century Dutch corbeille shaped canapé greets visitors when they walk into this 7000 sq. ft. home.
I love this very glamorous foyer with neutral grass cloth covered walls, the fabulous marquetry commode and the stunning mirror above it make for a GLAM SLAM!
This living room is so glamorous with all the sumptuous velvets and silks in this room. And you can never go wrong with decorating in unforgettable plums and purples mixed in with neutral greys. Oh so very elegant!! Love it!
The master bedroom is very calm and serene decorated in a neutral palette mixed with lots of whites. I guess the lesson here is that it’s ok to put the bed against a wall of windows when it’s the only way to ensure that the bed remains the focal point of the room.
This sitting area goes extra glam with nail head detail on the chair and ottoman, a large mirror and lots of gold and brass accents.
This home designed by Jamie Herzlinger is truly a luxe retreat!

This is the first “Decorate As You Dress” blog post of the year and I thought why not start it off with Pantone’s 2012 Colour of the year: Tangerine Tango!!
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
Now let’s take a look at how you can incorporate this vivacious colour into your wardrobe or home decor:
I absolutely adore this spring coat as much as I adore this headboard. Now that’s the way to add some POP into your room!!
On the other hand, this kitchen is definitely over the top orange which is something I would NOT recommend doing in your home but I would definitely wear that cute orange outfit above.
Pops of orange like these counter stools or the dining room chairs below is a much palatable way to go with decorating your home in this hue! And used with whites is a sure-fire way to garner positive attention.
Definitely much more refined looking when such a bright colour is used as more of an accent!
But if you want to stop traffic at your next gala event, then this gown is the way to go!!! STUNNING!!
And just as stunning is this front door. What a way to welcome guests to your home!
I’m actually coveting this glorious wallpaper along with these oh so glam Steve Madden shoes!!! Be still my beating heart!!
In case you want to run out and paint a feature wall in this colour, Benjamin Moore has a similar colour called Tangerine Melt CC-091.
If I have inspired you to incorporate this wonderful colour into your home or closet, here are a few tips:
1) This hue is magical when used as an accent against a neutral background, especially with greys!
2) Don’t be afraid to use in colour combinations such as blue & orange or pink & orange!
Wow, I love this glamorous girly look for my Glam Cave!!
3) Don’t be shy about incorporating this colour into your wardrobe or home decor…start off small, then go from there!
Like this or like this……
4) This colour is not for everyone so if it doesn’t suit your skin tone or you absolutely hate anything orange in your home, then DON”T DO IT!! Instead try Benjamin Moore’s 2012 colour of the year: Wythe Blue (HC-143). I’ll blog about this colour later this week.
So tell me….are you ready to tango with the tangerine?

Couldn’t resist this last image!! Want this look for spring!!
As you know, I love all things GLAM – especially a glamorous bedroom. And one of the easiest ways to create a glamorous bedroom is to add a piece of mirrored furniture into the room.
And it doesn’t have to be over the top. This Master bedroom belongs to Nancy Corzine may be a bit much for you with all the mirrored furniture….but for me it is a total GLAM SLAM!!
Nancy also wrote a beautiful book called “Glamour at Home” – it’s on my coffee table at home.
This mirrored four-poster bed was inspired by the Chrysler Building. Wow!!
