Ask Jules: Dreamy Bedroom Decor

Hi Jules,

I need your help! I live in Toronto and bought a condo about a year ago (yay for home ownership!). I’ve slowly been making it my own, but have really struggled to come up with a plan for my bedroom.

askjules-bedroom-1

As you can see, my bedroom is white on white on white and needs some sprucing up! I’ve recently purchased a grey padded headboard to start my redecorating, but haven’t been successful coming up with a plan to make it feel like the perfect escape. I love the look of shiplap and gallery walls, but have been cautious adding those as I don’t have a lot of square footage.

I’ve included pictures of what I’m working with; you’ll see I have big blank wall and have no idea what to put there, also need help with what to do above my headboard. Do I remove the mirrors over the bedside tables? Add in shiplap wallpaper on the wall? So many questions — would love help!!!

Thank you,
Meghan

Meghan,

Congrats on your new condo! As exciting as it is to have a clean slate, it’s also daunting because the options are endless! I love the grey padded bed and headboard! This style is classic and comfortable.

I am a big believer in bedrooms being decorated with serenity, rest and relaxation in mind. To me, that translates to light, natural colors and a clean aesthetic. Luckily, you’re mostly there with all that white!

I do like the mirrors next to your bed but I’d like to see them above your bed, hung horizontally and spaced apart. What do you think? If you decide not to use those, a gallery wall would look really nice (the gallery wall plus those mirrors might be a bit much).

I’d keep the frames light and simple and choose consistent art or photos (for example: all black and whites or all nature images) to keep with your “perfect escape” vibe.

I’ve created a mood board below with items I’d choose to turn the place you dream into a dreamy space. Keep me posted on the renovations! Continue Reading

Ask Jules: Dorm Room Redo

I haven’t lived in a dorm room, but I have lived on location while filming a movie and on a tour bus while on the road, so I know the importance of making the place you spend time in feel warm and personal.

Hals’ email hit a chord with me — plus it was so funny it made me LOL. I especially loved that she included lots of pictures. I gave her my best advice, but I think it would be awesome if you would jump in and add your own thoughts in the comments!

Hi Jules,

I NEED YOUR HELP!! I attend Nipissing University in North Bay, Canada. I love the school because it’s small and has amazing trails around campus. We even have our own waterfall!

But I have to admit, I sometimes feel like Bella Swan living in Forks. It’s grey, cold and damp. (Still waiting for a cute vampire to show up!) I have attached pictures of my dorm room and I just want some tips on how to make it feel warmer and more like home.

I love boho, plants, fluffy blankets, etc. Your collaboration with Joss and Main was my favourite! I love those kinds of looks but never know how to achieve it. I am super passionate about art; I’ve started to collect one piece every time I travel somewhere new.

Obviously being a student I’m on a tight budget, but I’m in this room constantly studying and reading, and I’m so tired of feeling like I live in a prison cell. Personally, I think the white brick gives off the perfect jail cell vibe. One of the photos includes my beautiful view (the grey skies match the grey buildings… how cute). Also I included a picture of my DIY lamp, where I put all my old tickets, of course it’s a picture of my favourite ones, MOVE LIVE TOUR and a Leafs vs Capitals hockey game where I saw your boy Brooks.

Your Biggest Fan,
Hals xoxo

PS: I love DIYs! I always do the ones you put on your website. I love the lip scrub made out of coffee grounds and the bath bombs were super fun to make! Anyways, hopefully you can help a girl out! Thanks for everything, Jules! Continue Reading

4 Tips To Achieving Your Dream Home Office

A few months ago I asked the girls from E. Interiors to share their tips on designing the perfect space. I love their style and was thrilled to have them back again to talk about their new home office space! Even if you go to school or an office every day, it’s important to have a space in your home where you can sit down and really focus.

The E. Interiors’ office upgrade is so cute — I hope it inspires you to create the work space of your dreams!

My new home had a great outdoor area, which I wanted to turn into an outside living space. I envisioned a relaxing sitting area and a dining table with great rustic chairs. The story or the vibe I wanted this space to give was something earthy, natural and fresh but also young, modern and inviting.

Shopping on Joss & Main made it so easy for me to take my dream outdoor space and make it a reality! When they invited me to put together my very own collection, I jumped at the chance. Here you’ll find all my favorite pieces for what I consider the perfect outdoor space, everything from candles and rugs to furniture and flatware.

How To Care For Cut Tulips

Nothing says spring like having fresh flowers in the house, and right now I’m loving tulips! They come in the most gorgeous colors, and have such a sophisticated, architectural shape they can instantly make any room seem like it’s professionally decorated.

If I’m going to have a beautiful bouquet on display, I want to keep it fresh as long as possible. I did some research on the best way to take care of cut flowers, and discovered it’s a lot less difficult than I thought! Continue Reading

DIY Gorgeous Dried Flowers

Whenever I receive flowers (or buy them for myself because — why not?) I always wish they’d last longer, especially if they hold sentimental value. Of course the only option for forever flowers is to dry them, but I never seem to get it right. Often they start to stink or fall apart; I have yet to dry a perfect batch.

It wasn’t until I found this simple trick that I was able to simplify the process. And wouldn’t you know, the solution was right under my nose all along! All you’ll need is a sizable amount of silica gel. You know, those tiny white baggies that come in the box with your new shoes and most other items? They say, “Silica Gel: Do not eat. Throw away.” Those are silica gel!

Their purpose is to suck the moisture from the air keeping those new products dry and fresh. (Light bulb moment, right?!) You can either start collecting these little guys or buy them in bulk — but please remember to keep them out of reach from pets and small children.

4 Steps To Perfectly-Dried Flowers

You’ll need:

Silica Gel
• A jar, bowl or container that has a tightly-fitting lid.
• Flowers! Continue Reading

Kitchen Confidential: An Unexpected Splash Of Color

Who says sponges have to be boring? Why should all kitchen knives be black? I say go bold or go home with splashes of bright hues in unexpected places! It’s a small but special touch that gives something ordinary an exciting appeal.

DIY Christmas Ornaments

I am especially proud of this pretty DIY tree I decorated at home last week. It was surprisingly simple to do! All you need are a few easy-to-find items. You can use the ones I list here, or get creative and go with your own ideas.

jules-diy-ornaments-4

Start with clear, round and heart-shaped globes that feature openings near the top.

Place twirled pieces of yarn inside, using the same shade of string as ties to hang from the tree. I chose to use hues of cream and brown because I wanted a natural color scheme but obviously the options are endless! I also used a rose gold wire in some of the globes for a touch of sparkle.

Hey, Jules!!
So I have been seriously dating a mountain man and with all of the fun outdoor adventures comes the (icky) manly decor. Think: deer and elk skulls, bull riding pics, mounted fish, hodgepodge furniture and spurs. I am trying to slowly introduce him to better style (my style is more vintage chic- rustic wood, mirrors, black, white, grey with pops of color). I bought him a log bed for Christmas and need your help with how to blend our styles while still making him comfortable — he asked me to move in.

Thank you so much!!
Brittany
