Cheeky Design Month - It's a little 'On The Nose'

Today's Cheeky Design ideas may not seem readily obvious, though they are 'obvious' design trends.

What are you talking about Amy?

When I look at "Cheeky Design", sometimes the 'cheeky-ist' spaces are ones that deliberately exploit current design trends.  I like to call them 'On the Nose' spaces - no negativity intended, they are simply 'obvious' spaces.

So what exactly is 'On the Nose' design?

I'm so glad you asked! (well, you didn't, but let's pretend you did ;-P )  To me, 'On The Nose'  design is things like mirrored settings on either side of a fireplace, matching table lamps flanking a sofa or bed, or using the same colour for 90% of the items in the room.  These are beautiful spaces (when done right) and are great examples of how a designer's eye can help pull a room together.

Let's explore!

 I'd love to hear what you think about these spaces!  Could you live in an all black room?  Are you daring enough to try a bold graphic tile on your floor?  Are you a matching-table-lamps kind of person or do you like to shake it up?  Share in the comments below!  And remember friends, this is a judgement-free zone so if you really do love the tone on tone, 18 shades of white space - good on ya!


Love spaces like these but not sure how to work them into your home?  Let's work together and create a home you love!  Now booking interior design sessions in Calgary, Chestermere, Okotoks & Cochrane areas. 

Live further away? No probs!  Check out our edesign packages.  Just because you're a little remote, doesn't mean you don't deserve fabulous design assistance as well!

Whether you're a matching-lamps person or a shocking I-can't-believe-you-did-that-in-your-living-room person, just remember:
