MONEY AND IT WILL LOOK FABULOUS. THANK YOU SWEETHEART FOR COMING DOWN TODAY. GREAT TO SEE YOU.>>Steven: IT’S BOLD, IT’S KID FRIENDLY.>>Chris: ALL ON eBAY.>>HI “STEVEN AND CHRIS”. WELCOME TO MY HOME, COME ON IN. JUST CAUTION YOU IT’S NOT EVERYDAY I LET A FILM CREW AND I’M A LITTLE NERVOUS.>>THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SPACES TO DECORATE. YOU CAN HAVE CREATIVE LICENSE, IT’S A TRANSITIONAL SPACE. THIS FOYIER IS CHALLENGING, NOT ONLY THE LANDING SPOT BUT OPEN TO THE DINING ROOM. MY JOB WAS TO MAKE IT FEEL LIKE A SEPARATE SPACE BUT IT STILL HAD TO WORK TOGETHER. THE UNIFYING PART. IT’S BOLD. TO BALANCE OUT THE WALLPAPER WE WENT WITH OVER SIZED MIRROR. FAUX HYDE. WE ALSO INCORPORATED SATIN BRASS. I LOVE TO MIX METALS. WE ADDED WONDERFUL ACCESSORIES. I’VE GOT STOOLS IN HERE. GREAT SPOT. THE MOST REMARKABLE THING ABOUT THE LIVING ROOM, IT’S ONLY NINE FEET WIDE. THIS PRESENTED A HUGE CHALLENGE TRYING TO FIND FURNITURE, EVERY SOFA WAS TOO DEEP. I WENT ON eBAY, I FOUND THIS FEDERAL STYLE SOFA. I HAD IT SPRAYED AND REUPHOLSTERED, I A ALL UNDER $1,000. I FOUND THESE CHAIRS ON eBAY. TRULY A FIND. WE HAD THEM REUPHOLSTERED IN BEAUTIFUL WOOL. TOTALLY DURABLE, REALLY, REALLY GREAT. FOR A CONSOLE TABLE FOR A TV WE HAD IT SLIP COVERED. GREAT TO HIDE THE MESS AND KEEPS LITTLE FINGERS OUT OF D.V.D. PLAYERS AND OTHER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT. THE MOST REMARKABLE THING ABOUT THIS SPACE IS THE AMOUNT OF COLOUR AND PATTERN. THE KEY FACTOR TO USING THIS MUCH IS TO MAKE SURE ALL OF THE GROUND ARE CONSISTENT. MUCH EASIER TO WORK WITH. HELPS KEEP THE SPACE OPEN AND LARGER. THE DRAPERY IRONICALLY WAS THE LAST THING CHOSEN FOR THIS ROOM. THE BLUE IS PICKED UP. IT BEGAN WITH PILLOWS, JUMPING OFF POINT. BEAUTIFUL CORAL. POMEGRANATE AND GRAY. IT’S FABRIC I GOT, LIKE A REMNANT. I STAPLED IT OVER A CANVAS AND IT’S BECOME THE PERFECT PIECE OF ART, THE REPETITION REALLY BALANCES OUT THE OTHER PATTERNS IN THE ROOM. IT’S JUST A FUN VIBRANT ROOM, AND IT’S GREAT FOR A SMALL FAMILY.>>SAY HELLO TO THE TALENTED MERIDETH.>>YOU LOOK FABULOUS. EVEN WHAT YOU ARE WEARING.>>I THINK IT HAS TO MATCH YOUR PERSONALITY, I HAVE A PERSONALITY. MY PATTERN HAS TO OFFSET IT.>>THESE PIECES WERE PURCHASED ON eBAY.>>EVEN MY ENTRY TABLE MY MOM MADE IT.>>Chris: eBAY, WE WILL SEE IT ON A PIECE OF TAPE. YOU LOVE TO DECORATE THE ENTRY WAY THAT’S ONE OF THE FAVOURITE PLACES TO DECORATE.>>YOU WALK IN WHETHER IT’S A CONDO OR HOUSE THAT’S THE FIRST PLACE TO MAKE A STATEMENT, PERSONAL BRAND, WHO LIVES HERE.>>Chris: YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE A BUSINESS YOU BECOME A BRAND BUT YOUR HOUSE IS A BIT OF A BRAND.>>YOU COULD BE MORE DRAMATIC, MORE DARING THERE BECAUSE IT’S A TRANSITION SPACE, PEOPLE GO INTO THE NEXT SPACE BUT YOU WANT TO MAKE THAT WOW. WITH MY WALLPAPER THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY SAYS WHEN THEY WALK IN. WOW!>>YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DO THAT.>>Steven: YOU LIKE PUTTING PERSIAN RUGS IN THE ENTRY.>>I HAPPENED UPON IT BY ACCIDENT. A CLIENT HAD ONE, I WALKED INTO THE CONSTRUCTION SITE I WALKED ONTO THE PERSIAN CARPET WITH MUDDY BOOTS. SHE SAID JUST LEAVE IT, IT WILL DRY AND VACUUM UP. IT’S PERFECT.>>WE WILL TAKE A QUICK BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK WE WILL GO THROUGH eBAY TIPS AND >>Steven: WELCOME BACK. NOW WE WILL CHECK OUT THE DINING AREA AND KITCHEN. WATCH THIS, EVERYBODY.>>AS YOU RECALL WHEN YOU WALK INTO OUR HOUSE, THE DINING ROOM IS IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT TO THE FOYER. THAT MEANT THIS DINING ROOM BECAME A CATCH ALL FOR MAIL, COFFEE CUPS, BAGS. MY TRICK TO MAKING THAT NOT BE THE CASE IS TO ACTUALLY USE THIS TABLECLOTH. PEOPLE SEEM TO BE AFRAID TO PILE THINGS ON A TABLECLOTH AND I’M USING THAT TO MY ADVANTAGE. IT BALANCES SOME OF THE OTHER PATTERNS IN THE LIVING ROOM NICELY. WE PAIRED IT WITH FAMILY FRIENDLY FABRICS ON THE CHAIR. WE OPTED FOR A CRYSTAL CHANDELIER BECAUSE IT’S SO MUCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM I DIDN’T WANT TO BLOCK YOUR SIGHT LINE BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM AND I LIKE THE OPENNESS IT CREATES. LIKE THE LIVING ROOM WE REALLY ONLY HAVE ABOUT NINE FEET OF USABLE SPACE. WE HAD TO BE CREATIVE. DESPERATELY NEED THE STORAGE. WE HAD A COUNTER TOP MADE TO HIDE SOME OF THE UGLY UNSIGHTLY BED. CREATES THIS BUFFET THAT IS NICE MODERN TOUCH AND WE HAVE OUR ASIAN VASOS ON TOP WHICH ARE FUN AND I HAVE ANOTHER WAY TO ADD THAT BLEW IN THE SPACE. BLUE IN THE SPACE. WE HAVE AN ART WALL. WE USED SILVER AND GOLD FRAMES COLOUR AND BLACK AND WHITE TO GIVE IT THIS WARM, FAMILY-FRIENDLY FEEL. THIS IS OUR KITCHEN. IT WAS A TWO-WEEK RENOVATION. FROM START TO FINISH, YES, UNHEARD OF BUT WE DID SPEND A YEAR PLANNING IT. THE IDEA WAS TO KEEP IT LIGHT AND BRIGHT. EXTENDING CABINET TO FULL HEIGHT, MINIMIZING THE CONTRAST REALLY DOES FEEL MUCH BIGGER. WE HAVE GONE WITH OPEN SHELFING ABOVE THE SINK. SO WE HAVE PLATES AND DISHES READILY ACCESSIBLE. MY HUSBAND BEING A DOOR OPENER VERSUS A DOOR CLOSES WE HAVE LEFT SPICES AND OILS ON DISPLAY SO THEY ARE RIGHT AT HIS FINGER TIPS AND I DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CRACKING MY HEAD ON THE DOOR. I KNOW PEOPLE DON’T THINK MARBLE IS GOOD FOR A KITCHEN. I DON’T AGREE WITH IT. I CALL IT STAINED PATINA. BUT IT IS SOFT. WE USED A MARBLE BACK SPLASH, WHERE WE COULD WE TOOK THE TILE UP TO THE CEILING, THAT HELPS TO ADD A SPACIOUS KITCHEN AND IT’S PRETTY TO LOOK AT. THIS IS A COMMERCIAL GRADE FLOOR. IT HAS A LOT OF GIVE AND SPONGY AND FOR GIVING IN TERMS OF SPILLS. A 2-YEAR-OLD HAS A LOT OF SPILLS. THE THING I LIKE MOST IS HOW IT INTEGRATES WITH THE REST OF THE HOUSE. WE COULD BE ENTERTAINING, SPEND TIME AS A FAMILY AND DESPITE IT BEING A SMALL ENCLOSED ROOM IT REALLY IS THE HEART OF THE HOME. THANK “STEVEN AND CHRIS” FOR STOPPING BY. NEXT TIME YOU COME BACK WE WILL TEST OUT SOME OF THAT WINE.>>Chris: LOVELY. LOTS OF GREAT IDEAS. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THAT BACK WALL HIGHLIGHTED WITH THE TILES. WHAT ARE THOSE TILES DONE IN?>>ORIENTAL WHITE MARBLE.>>TAKING DOWN THAT CABINET IT REALLY OPENS ON THE SPACE.>>DID YOU NOTICE THAT. TAKING DOWN SOME OF YOUR CABINETS OR THAT CABINET THAT’S SUSPENDED. IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT DO SHELVES AND BEAUTIFUL DISHES THAT YOU DON’T USE EVER. THEY LOOK GREAT. SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD OPEN UP YOUR SPACE.>>LET’S TALK eBAY.>>HAVE YOU GREAT TIPS THERE. THE FIRST ONE IS ALL ABOUT THE SEARCH.>>IT IS, WHEN YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR SEARCH NAMES IN, THEY OFTEN NOW SUGGEST DIFFERENT RELATED SEARCHS. HOLLYWOOD REGENCY, MID CENTURY MODERN. I LOOK FOR THINGS LIKE PAIR OF LAMPS, PAIR OF CHAIRS. IF YOU PUT FAUX BAMBOO, DON’T PUT TOO MUCH. PUT THESE CATCH ALL PHRASES AND YOU START TO READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE DESCRIBING THEIR ITEMS, OK WELL I’M LOOKING FOR A VINTAGE CHANDELIER. I PUT IN FAUX BAMBOO.>>Chris: ASK THE GHT QUESTIONS. DO THEY HAVE A STORE ONLINE.>>ARE THEY WILLING TO SHIP TO CANADA. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WILL ONLY SAY U.S. SHIPPING ONLY. THAT DOESN’T STOP ME, I TRY TO ENTICE THEM. HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT? MOST PEOPLE ARE REALLY FRIENDLY ABOUT IT, VERY FEW PEOPLE DO SAY NO. BUT IF THEY HAVE A STORE THEY ARE A LITTLE MORE VERSED. THEN THEY GIVE YOU ANOTHER WEBSITE YOU CAN GO TO AND LOOK WHAT THEY HAVE IN STOCK WHICH IS GREAT.>>ONE TIP, SNIPER, IS THAT A TERM?>>YOU CAN USE AN eBAY SNIPER.>>Chris: DOES THAT COME WITH A GUN?>>IT’S A HIRED HAND FOR SURE. YOU CAN REGISTER WITH A SNIPER AND YOU PUT IN YOUR MAXIMUM BID FOR THAT ITEM. IF YOU WANT TO SAY THIS MUG I DON’T WANT TO PAY MORE THAN $2 YOU PUT THAT IN, IT WILL WATCH YOUR DIFFERENT SALES AND AUCTIONS AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE IT WILL GO INTO THE NEXT HIGHEST BID, SO IF THE BID WAS ONLY AT 50 CENTS IT WILL GO TO 55 OR 60.>>Steven: IT WILL MONITOR IT FOR YOU.>>Chris: YOU DON’T HAVE TO STAY AND BABYSIT.>>YOU PROBABLY DON’T GO OVER THE AMOUNT YOU WANT TO SPEND BECAUSE YOU AREN’T ALL WOUND UP.>>IT ALSO WORKS FOR DESIGNER PURSES.>>Chris: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US. REALLY GREAT JOB.
