Are you struggling to come up with some unique Christmas gift ideas for some of the people on your list?
By now I hope you know I don’t do a whole lot of sales pitchy things here but…..
Spoiler alert: I’m winding up for a shameless plug or two!
How about a gift certificate for a one-hour, in-person interior design consultation anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area? It could be just the help that someone needs to get over the feeling of being stuck when it comes to renovation or décor ideas for their home. For pricing and details, contact Robin@RenovationBootcamp.com
Or you could consider giving the gift of a complete room makeover all done ONLINE!
Say what?? Don’t you have to be in the same city or even in the home to do any kind of decor work?
Nope. Nah. Uh-uh. We be in the 21st Century, Baby!
With all the fantastic technological tools at our disposal these days which are as easy to use as opening an e-mail, you could have concept drawings, samples boards like this one:
and a shopping list of where to get the items suggested without getting out of your jammies!
Creating an interior that looks like a magazine feature is not just a matter of acquiring a bunch of things to fill the room, it’s carefully, artfully planned, curated, and orchestrated using design principles of line, form, rhythm, balance, proportion, visual weight, style and color. And to do that right the first time, it’s well worth your while to hire a professional who will present you with options you never thought of or might not have had the confidence to try on your own.

When you spend $100 through my affiliate link with Wayfair, I donate 20% of my revenue to Covenant House, a wonderful organization that helps kids who have no home to go to. Their mission is to:
Change lives by providing the widest range of services and support under one roof. A national leader, we educate and advocate for change to help at-risk and homeless youth.
More than a place to stay, we provide 24/7 crisis shelter and a longer-term residential program along with comprehensive services, including education, counselling, health care, employment assistance and job training. For more than 30 years, Covenant House has helped thousands of young people move from a life on the street to a life with a future.
Covenant House Toronto advocates for at-risk and homeless youth by influencing public policy and delivering prevention and awareness programs.
To do all this, we rely on donors for more than 80 percent of our almost $20-million annual operating budget.
On average, 3,000 young people turn to us annually. Our doors are open to youth 16 to 24 regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or the circumstances that have brought them to our threshold.
