Do you know your design style? At Twoheys we have pieces that would fit in with any interior space. We’re here to help you create the home of your dreams.

“You may be thinking of the that bare spot in your living room or bedroom. An armchair that we can fully relax, lay back and hide away in may be what you need right now.” -Lauren Li

If you are drawn to a contemporary/modern aesthetic, you desire a clutter free and airy home. Here are some elements that define this style: sleek lines and shapes, bold colour palettes, and chrome finishes. The Michelle Chair (shown below) would be the perfect accent to your design. Tufted details, metal legs and comfort make this piece a show stopper. Photo by Craig Stephens.

If you want a home that is warm and inviting with a touch of sophistication, than traditional is your style. Think rolled arms, Persian rugs, oil paintings and gilded accents. The Mercer chair (shown below) is a classic design that would look great in a solid or patterned fabric. Curl up with a good book, or snuggle by the fire. Photo by Kendra Bester.

If retro design and iconic furniture is what you gravitate towards, than Mid-Century Modern is your style. Did you watch Mad Men just for the set design? Bring the spirit of the 1950’s and 60’s into your home with a combination of sculptural shapes, warm wood finishes, tapered legs and geometric patterns. The Tribeca arm chair (shown below) is a modern take on a teak classic. Choice of wood stain and upholstery.

“Investing in a classic piece means that you’ll get years of use from your treasured furniture item, and possibly pass it onto family as an heirloom.” -Lauren Li

Here are a few things that caught my eye last week that I thought you might enjoy.

Not everyone has the budget or experience to retile a room. “Painting floor tile has become a creative way to add some personality to bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, or any other space with tile flooring. If you take your time and do it correctly, painting your tile floor is a great money-saving DIY project.” – Erin Johnson

Here are some good tips for keeping a healthy home. Our family has a big dog that sheds a lot of hair. I enjoyed this post on pet friendly vacuums.

Olive and Mabel are two dogs you need to know. So cute! Check out the videos their owner has posted online.

I always enjoy a beautiful house tour and this one from House and Home did not disappoint. A fresh Scandinavian space, my kind of style!

When I think of a classic film from the 1980’s, I fondly remember Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. If you want to watch the cast of the film in a reunion check out this video.

If you want a floral cocktail that looks as good as it tastes, check out these recipes here.  Lavender Grapefruit Gin Buck cocktail by Ashley Rose.

I  just discovered Little Free Pantry and wanted to share it with you. It is located close to our shop on Crescent Street, and a great way to give back during this difficult time.

“My name is Margo Hudson and, and along with my husband, I’d like to introduce you to our Little Free Pantry set up in our front yard located in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. I first saw this idea on social media. This idea is similar to the free library exchange boxes in many communities. I was immediately drawn to this idea because I knew it could make a difference in people lives in my community. My idea is to put non-perishable food items into the pantry on a daily basis. This allows those in need to take what they need and also allows those who wish to contribute to leave what they can.”
