Spring has begun!
Aside from the warm weather being on its way, one of the best parts about spring is all of the beautiful floras and greenery coming back to life! What better way to add a touch of spring to your home then using them to accent your space.
Plants and fresh flowers can be used to add colour to neutral spaces

Why Choose an Area Rug?
Area Rugs are the perfect way to finish off your design, whether they’re being used in open concept spaces or closed off rooms, an area rug has multiple benefits to you and your space.
Having an area rug helps to define your space, this is especially useful in open concept layouts. If you’ve got a large open space with many of your rooms leading in to the other, an area rug allows you to ground and give a visual separation to each of the spaces.
Using an area rug in smaller areas can also help create flow through the room.
Choosing an area rug can also give warmth and comfort to you space. While hardwood and tile flooring look beautiful it can often be quite cold on your feet and selecting an area rug with soft textures is a perfect solution.
If your struggling with the right, size, style, and placement of your area we are here to help. With a wide selection of area rugs we are sure to find your perfect fit!

How the use of artwork inspires, helps create and execute a design.
Artwork is often used as a jumping off point when creating a new design. Starting with a piece of art allows you to draw colours, patterns and/ or textures to create an interesting and cohesive look.
Art can be used to select colours for your accessories. Using small pops of colour pulled from your artwork allows the art to remain the focal point while still being fluid with the rest of the design.
It can also inspire the overall colour scheme. Choosing artwork with a clear colour scheme gives you the ability to draw the same colours and tones into the space, giving the design one consistent scheme.
Mimicking the lines and shapes found in artwork can help inspire your furnishing selections. Using similar curves to what is seen in the artwork gives the design a pleasing appeal.
If you have a piece of art you love and are looking to create a design around it, let us at CPI Interiors help you!

A monochromatic colour scheme is using different pigments of one colour throughout a space, it is a great way to create a calming space, with a muted delicate look. When done correctly you can still achieve a contrasting look with vibrant focal points while using one colour.
When doing a monochromatic room, you can add a bit more excitement by adding multiple patterns and textures. This allows you to create a wow factor or focal point without adding in additional colours.
