Episode 9- Master bedroom

This is my favourite room in Derek and Vanessa's house. I think it's my favourite because it really feels like an oasis. I love it so much that I decided to go with a similar colour scheme for my own master bedroom!

Some fun things to mention:

We shopped till we dropped at Union Lighting in Toronto. Union Lighting holds a cornucopia of lighting, bedding, chairs, accessories and more. There really is something for everyone there- and Derek and Nessa fell in love with a beige ultra suede chair- it cost 2/3 of their $1500 budget but was worth the price. A tip- always ask if you can buy the floor model.

We saved a lot of money by making things ourselves- the headboard, a side table and recovering cushions for the window seat.

We further saved money by shopping at another one of my favourite retailers- Dollarama. Gotta love volume prices. They have picture frames, candles, trays, plates that with the right pairings, can look priceless. We also shopped at stores that you wouldn't think have a large variety of home goods. Zellers is my new secret treasure to share with you. The Alfred Sung line is fabulous- the bedding and side tables are Alfred Sung Home.

Read below on other ways you can add value, personality and character to your home. Love to hear about your own projects!

I was wondering what the name of the paint colour is on the wall. It's a nice colour of blue.

Hi- the paint colour is called Atmospheric, from Sherwin Williams in satin finish. It is a great colour!

Was wondering about the painting in the room? The one with the circles. Love it to death! Where can I purchase it?

Hi there,

I'm glad you like the painting.

If we are talking about the same painting in Derek & Vanessa's Master Bedroom (blue with a geometric pattern in shades of silver and brown) it is from Pier 1.

Thanks for watching,

Where did you purchase the mirrored side table? Love it! Exactly what I'm looking for.

It is from Union Lighting. I've found other great mirrored pieces at Urban Barn and Dexterity on Queen W.

Pier 1 also has a new line of mirrored pieces.

Thanks for watching,
