Happy St. Patrick's Day - Think Green!


Posted on March 16, 2017

We already know that St. Patrick's Day is all about green, but do you know what green really means? 

The colour green has long been associated with nature and growth. It is a colour of balance, self-reliance, acceptance and caring. According to sensationalcolor.com, looking at the colour green affects our bodies in a positive manner. It causes our muscles to relax, decreases the severity of our allergies, stimulates our pituitary gland, and the more commonly known effect is the calm and stress relieving attributes. Maybe this Spring celebrate St. Patrick's Day by adding some green to your home to enjoy a clean, calming environment all year round!

Introducing Color into Your Home


Posted on September 18, 2013

Color adds SO much zest to life! Personally, I think I would go crazy in a bland neutral world. With that being said, color can have many different psychological effects on people and can evoke strong emotions- you have to be mindful of your application.

One of the biggest concerns with using strong color is that you may tire of it quickly, or it may date. There are so many ways that you can introduce color into a space without being married to it.

Colorful design features can be all a room needs for some energy or "wow" factor.

Posted on November 20, 2012

The Daunting Interior Selection Appointment


I have always loved pulling samples together & creating room concepts, so when I started working at Central Alberta Tile One it came as a huge surprise to find how many clients are terrified about selecting products for their homes! Quite often the first words I hear out of my clients mouths are "I've been dreading this appointment" or "I have NO idea what I want, this is going to be tough!"
