Kitchen Backsplash
Louis Pereira

  • Get the look of back-painted glass at a fraction of the cost!
  • Pereira of Edmonton’s Thirdstone used Ikea’s Abstrakt cabinets to design a kitchen in high gloss white.
  • For the backsplash, he used the high-gloss grey Abstrakt cabinets.
  • Using panels intended for built-in refrigerators, he cut them to make a custom fit for the backsplash and part of the island.

Wallpaper Art
Alykhan Velji

  • You can create a distinct, elegant feature wall by framing out wallpaper.
  • The Alykhan Velji includes texture and pattern in his designs, but the walls of this renovated mid-century home in Calgary could have been problematic for wallpaper: they curve on the way up to the ceiling.
  • Frame out a defined section, install the patterned paper of your choice, and create the perfect match to any decor!

Double-duty Office
Megan Baker

  • Make your furniture pull double duty!
  • Megan Baker of Vancouver’s A Good Chick to Know created a home office with a glass waterfall table and a rustic table lamp with a pretty vignette of map-wrapped books.
  • It also stores seating underneath, making the space feel tidy and intentional, rather than cluttered.
  • The pretty yellow zig zag stools also provide more than just a spot for guests to sit: the bold blast of yellow adds a bit of whimsy to a traditionally serious, work-oriented space.

We loved spotting our products in Megan’s look! What a great idea to use double duty furniture to save space.
