Give The Gift Of Good Taste This Holiday Season

We all know someone who could use a little “helpful advice” about the décor of their home. You know the home we’re talking about – the thread-bare rugs that semi-cover the hallways, the eye-burning 1970s-inspired wallpaper in the dining room, the curb-find furniture that looks like it was ravaged by a pack of hungry dingos. But how do you tell them discretely that their house looks like it should grace the cover of “Tacky Homes Magazine?” You don’t – you just surprise them with an Elegant Changes gift certificate!

In honor of this special time, we’ve put together a list of dorm room style tips that will earn you top marks. It’s All About Storage Dorm rooms are notoriously small, so you need to make the most out of the space you have.

Trends From The 2012 Fall Toronto Gift Show

We’re back from a well-deserved vacation and revving to decorate! It was just what we needed before ramping up for a busy fall and winter season.

As well, we couldn’t take our eyes off all the imports from Florence. This included elegant...
