One of my favourite posts on the blog is the "Transformation Projects", where I share with you my design projects and my love of mixing colors, textures, and patterns. Today, I am taking you to the fabulous head quarter of Tonic Living!
My first date with Tonic Living was over the internet a few years back. My first impression was: Wow there are lots of eye candies here! I picked a few samples and within a couple of days, the samples were in my mailbox. Fast forward a few years, Janine and her team of experts came through on my last minute rush order time after time with superb products and service excellence.
If you haven't physically been to Tonic Living, you must! You will not only be floored by the impressive in-stock fabric collection, but also be inspired by the sleek, modern, hip design aesthetic. I am loving these super cool, overscale chandeliers: the perfect pair for a mod statement the moment you stepped into the store, not to mention the ideal light source for fabric plays.
Janine is truly a design triple-threat. She has a fantastic sense of style, a sharp eye for design trends, and she knows how to present her ideas! Within seconds, Janine pulled two sensational palettes for my up coming design project (which you will read about on Friday) + offering M fabric tips!
Did you sneak a peek into the deliciously colorful lounge in the background? I am sure you did and here is why Tonic Living and I believe in love at first sight: we both love to mix colors and patterns! Janine and Shannon did an amazing job to showcase how to be adventurous with fabrics. Drapes, pillows, upholstery, or lamp shades, these are just a few ideas you can introduce fabrics to your home. Best of all, Tonic Living is your one stop shop from fabric selection to custom orders. No project is too small and Janine can certainly help!
Tonic Living is expanding their product offerings to comfy floor covering (I am in love with this black & white striped beauty from Cortenaer), and in collaboration with local talents such as artist Andrea Rinaldo (striking art collection I must say) and upholstery expert Andrea Ford of RE:Style Studio to showcase their creative work.
