Introducing the CANVAS Home and Dining Collection by Canadian Tire!

Saturday, August 29, 2015

I am so beyond excited about today's post!  I've been keeping a secret from you guys and I finally get to share all of the details!

A couple of months ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the amazing team at Canadian Tire.  The collaboration was so much fun and it was all to help celebrate the launch of their new CANVAS Home and Dining Collection (#MyCANVAS).   The days included in-studio filming and photography and chatting about the room that I styled.   

My focus was to provide inspiration on how to bring a touch of formality to eat-in kitchens.  You certainly don't need a dining room to bring a formal feel to your eating space and having a space that can both formal and causal is wonderful.  The Evans Creek Collection is absolutely fantastic, I love the X motif on the chairs and table legs.  I chose to add fabric chairs at the head of the table and also included even more seating by placing stools on either side of the Stacked White Cabinet.

The gorgeous Stacked White Cabinet creates a beautiful focal point.  I added puck lights to the top section to illuminate the decorative items, the lights also create beautiful ambiance in the evening hours.  Place some baskets on the lower shelves to hold extra utensils or even kids' crafting supplies.

I carried the colour throughout the room with the use of the stunning CANVAS Dinnerware Collection as well as art and I added a rustic touch with the help of the light fixture.  

You can truly create a custom space using only pieces from the CANVAS Home and Dining Collection.  One of my favourite things to do when it comes to decorating is to mix pieces and to choose furniture that offers versatility.   The wide variety of furniture in the CANVAS Home and Dining Collection allows you to do just that.  No one will know that you purchased all of the items from the same place!  The selection is just fantastic.

Now I don't want to give too much away!  You can read all about the space I created and watch videos (yep, videos!) on how to create the same look over at the Canadian Tire website.

  6. Windows prices for energy efficient windows can vary, but if you set up a budget, cost should not be a discouraging factor. Replacement windows prices at the lower end of the spectrum are still good at conserving energy. window replacement dallas tx
