Mood board Monday. My inspiration started with the Surya rug for this family room. Thinking about how I could use colors of the year for 2019. Nightwatch by PPG, Cavern Clay by Sherwin Williams and Metropolitan by Benjamin Moore. A warm palette balanced by moody greens and grays. Every room also needs a touch of gold and animal print. #yycdesigner #yycdecorator #monday #truecolorexpert #truecolorexpertsknowcolor #colorconsultant #colorboxinteriors #coloroftheyear2019 #cavernclay #nightwatch #metropolitan #truecolourexpert

Unless you are passionate about #design, I would imagine the thought of sitting through a 3 day color workshop where you dissect the subtle nuances in color undertones would not be your cup of tea. However, for those of us who live for design and can't seem to get enough, understanding #color is an exciting venture. I'm just returning home after attending nationally renowned Marie Killam's Color Expert Workshop in Charleston. I met seasoned designers, real estate agents, college professors teaching interior design classes as well as home stagers. It didn't seem to matter if you were a novice or highly skilled....there were so many takeaways for everyone. Maria proved to be quite the color guru with such a keen understanding of undertones. She was authentic and genuine and even shared stories of her earlier mishaps. My understanding of color has forever been transformed to a new level that I never thought possible. Grateful to be able to call myself certified as a True Color Expert trained by the very best....@mariakillam.

There is not a living soul left who bore witness to the first Great War, and very soon there will be none left to tell the tale first-hand of the Second World War. For the sake of our children, the importance we place on Remembrance should be increasing year by year, for, in the words of George Santayana, ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it’.

Sneak peek! Beach house styling this weekend. Loved every minute. My SIL, @latynertx and I did some mean shopping, including finding a total deal on this fabulous cream sofa with brass nail heads!
-
Obviously art needs to be hung and some gray accent chairs have yet to be delivered, but I’d say the family room is pretty stellar! 🐚

Peeps, it’s #fridayintroductions I’m Tania, owner of Style Maven Decor where my interior designs rejuvenate your space so you can fall in love with your home again. I’m obsessed with interior design & our pup, Finn. I love travelling & my favorite colour is turquoise, of course! I’m addicted to fashion & have been known to rock ripped jeans, floral, colour & leopard print… sometimes all at once. After Uni I was a model & English teacher in Japan & took people for horse rides in Greece then I met my talented hubs who owns a painting biz & became an Interior Decorator & True Colour Expert. Tell me something about you!

Just one of the beautiful staged rooms at the Evoque Hotel Inspiration showroom. I missed the grand opening but popped in for a look yesterday. Who likes the idea of a bit of hotel luxury at home?

As of my #dallasclass this past week it’s official #beigeisback and #greyisover now before you get crazy over this statement we are talking about the overuse of grey, a little brown, a little grey a little black in any home is just good decorating #truecolourexpert @jenn.colby showed me a palette of brand new #designerfabrics all with undertones of #yellowbeige no grey in sight! “We’re not doing any more grey with my clients” she declared! What’s the undertone of the carpet runner here?

More braziers in all different sizes brought from India to NZ by Hawthorn. We had so much fun exploring all their international finds. It’s a great place to go if you’re looking for some patina - lots of old textured doors and things like that.

I get asked all the time about paint colour and what’s my favourite gray. Well, I can tell you it’s not that simple. We have to look at all the hard finishes in a room to understand what colour has the most suitable undertone for your space. Did you know that neutrals have NINE different undertones and they don’t all work in all spaces. I can help you get it right the first time . 🙋‍♀️ #truecolourexpert #pickingpaint #graypaint #greypaint #dontgoitalone #interiordecorator #beautifulspaces #wowfactor .....

This is a side view of the water plant grouping I posted a while ago, snapped during a visit to @willsandprior. So pretty I think, and easy to maintain I’m guessing— you wouldn’t have to worry about forgetting to water them (my usual downfall)😜

Peeps! It’s Friday introductions. I’m Tania, Interior Decorator, True Colour Expert, fur mama & wife to the best hubs ever! 
5 Fun facts about me: 
1. I’ve been married for 18 years & we’ve never had a fight – just kidding!
2. I’m currently obsessed with my faux leopard print boots & my kimono with leopard print cuffs – meow.
3. I don’t just like the colour turquoise… I LOVE it!
4. I run on power shakes, coffee & wine – yes, in that order.
5. Did I mention I am a crazy dog mom (CDM)? Yup, I have a CDM Squad & we obsess over our Labradors!

Wallpaper Wednesday! This stunning design in various blue and green and gray colours is so garden fresh and yet moody. Paired with the mosaic metallic paper makes this interplay of patterns and colours a striking design style. 
Matching #benjaminmoore paint colours are Gray owl, Sea Haze, Timothy Straw, Lichen Green, North Sea and Oasis Tropical. 
What do you think of these wallpapers?

What do you think of using #benjaminmoore Hale Navy HC-154 for a kitchen cabinet colour? 
I’ve paired it with Decorator’s White CC-20 for trim, BM’s colour of 2019 Metropolitan AF-690 for walls and #Caesarstone quartz White Attica 5143 for the counters. 
I think it’s a bold and stunning design style that can work in a modern or traditional home. 
If you’re struggling with selecting paint colours for your home, ask a professional for advice.

I always smile when I walk past these black and white photos, taken when the kids were quite young. I love the sparkle in my son’s eyes in his shots— he got right into it. My daughter..., not so much. Many tears were shed. As a result, these photos are a daily reminder of my (first) fall from grace as a parent. Out the window went all my high-horse parenting standards (conceived well before I had any children of my own😜). Out the window with “l’ll NEVER bribe my children”, and “I’ll NEVER give my daughter Barbie dolls”. In the window (and out of my mouth) came sentenced like “If you just smile a little bit for the photographer, honey, maybe we’ll have time to stop at the store and buy you a Barbie on the way home!” 😬
Still love these photos anyways!

An afternoon of tile sourcing for 6 bathrooms and main house flooring. So many options of tiles with textures, shapes, patterns and gorgeous neutral colours. 
When you work with a design professional who is a colour expert, the process for tile selection doesn’t have to take all week. We help you save time and money so you can stay on schedule and budget. 
What decorating project are you working on that you would love some help with?

Soooo, very contentious topic here. How do you feel about books backwards on a shelf? I admit it, I have one set of bookshelves in my home with the books all turned backwards. But don’t worry! I can just pivot the whole section forward at a time to see all the spines, so I can find a book very easily. I am a reader and a book lover, and every room in the house has books on shelves. In this room I really wanted a calm and neutral space, and I love the colour of the aging pages😊
 So tell me, where do you stand: 
Team It’s-a-crime-to turn-those-books-around, Team Love-the-look-of-books-turned-around, or Team Don’t-really-have-strong-feelings-either-way ??

Announcing that I’ve branched out and opened a shiny new Instagram account for @nicolawarnerartist . There’ll still be some arty photos here from time to time, but I’ll be sharing a lot more work in progress, peeks into the studio (or the kitchen bench), and finished works over at @nicolawarnerartist (hint: click and follow 😉). Meanwhile it will be all interiors, colour and fabulous relaxed coastal style here at Island House. X

You wouldn’t think this is a coastal house in NZ but it is. Isn’t it wonderful how the owners have embraced the style? It’s a little piece of romance tucked down a steep seaside road.

Another day, another ColorBox. A lovely couple Brian and Tanya needed a neutral to work with their new kitchen and flooring and existing slate fireplace tile BM HC-172 Revere Pewter with it's green gray undertone fit the bill. BM CC-30 Oxford White for the trim and BM AF-560 Flint for the powder room which ties in the charcoal Island and charcoal tile with the blue undertone. The clients will be taking along their ColorBox when looking for area rugs and accessories. #yycdesigner #colorconsultant #colorboxinteriors #benjaminmoore #truecolorexpert #oxfordwhite #reverepewter #flint #truecolourexpert

A great way to update your furniture...with paint! A lovely family was looking for a way to update their dining room. The homeowners had inherited her Grandparents beautiful dining room furniture. A palette was chosen to lighten and brighten the walls, (BM Cloud White) chairs, (BM Shelburne Buff) and sideboard (BM Gentleman's Gray). Small changes can make a big impact. #benjaminmoore #paintedfurniture #yycdesigner #yycdesign #colorconsultant #colorboxinteriors #paintcolors #calgarydesigner #antique #truecolorexperts #truecolourexpert
