Igloo..."on the cover of a magazine!"

April is an exciting month here at Igloo! This month, we celebrate 5 years in the business and what better way than to grace the cover of a magazine? This month's Maison & Demeure.

This is a bedroom that both Anna and I are very proud of because it's a perfect example of how to properly use scale, pattern and colour. The pallet started off with a South Asian feel, but after much consideration, we took a drastic left turn and brought the room to all new heights. Here's how we did it...
A sisal area rug covers the Cumaru (Brazilian Teak) floors, and to top it all off...a zebra (no zebras were harmed in the making of this room!).

The black & white is a big part of detailing for me. "Every successful room should have a black and white pattern; Fornasetti is the perfect helper when it comes to the that."

Ocean-blue grass cloth wall covering behind the headboard, brings texture and delivers a dramatic, yet soothing colour.
A screen-like patterned wall covering on the ceiling...really? YES...or should I say 'ceiling covering'?

How could you not notice the yellow bed?...YES-it's big, yellow, and beautiful! But, don't worry, the bed matches the two yellow chesterfield sofas in the Living room...I know what you're thinking; and you're right-we are crazy! No one here is denying that! However-the end result speaks for itself :)

The mirror console and black high gloss Ghost chair is the perfect duo to glam up this bedroom...Igloo style! A black framed octagon shaped mirror gently rests up against the wall-no need to fix it to the wall. Don't forget the yellow drum-a perfect bed site table. A black metal, heart-shaped box of our favourite Fauchon chocolate hang out on the mirror console to sweeten up the deal.

Strong, confident and unapologetic. This room proudly stand up to say, "Here I am - love me or hate me!" We love it!!

Anna and I always say to each other "...every environment we create is a reflection of our clients...and of our passion".
