A CONTEMPORARY TWIST ON A CLASSIC G&T

December 20, 2018

It’s Friday night. The end of your hectic workweek has finally come to an end and you’re ready to sit back, put your feet up and binge watch your favorite Netflix series.

In my house, that usually means it’s time for Friday night G&T’s. I’ve always loved a good Gin and Tonic. They’re refreshing and versatile. Recently, my overgrown basil plant lead to the creation of the Blackberry and Basil G&T. Refreshing and fruity, the basil’s botanical aroma’s perfectly complement the juniper base of Gin.

Moe’s has brought in a plethora of new bar carts that are perfect for small and large spaces. The Manhattan Bar Cart perfectly pairs copper detailing with a charcoal finish on solid mango wood.

The two levels of the cart provide ample space to mix your drinks and store your bottles for a clutter-free surface. Easy glide wheels allow you to move it from space to space. Place behind your sofa to create a new space or along a wall.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz of your preferred gin
  • 3-4 oz of your preferred tonic
  • 3-4 fresh basil leaves
  • 2-3 fresh blackberries

Method

Place your blackberries into the bottom of your glass, and use a muddler or fork to squish them into a paste. Add in 2 basil leaves and muddle again to release the fragrance. Add your ice and measure 1 oz of gin and 3oz of tonic in your glass. Give a stir and place the remaining basil leaves on top for garnish. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

virgin blackberry & Basil soda

Ingredients

  • 4 oz of your preferred tonic water
  • 3 drops of old fashioned bitters
  • 2-3 blackberries
  • 2-3 leaves of fresh basil

Method

Place your blackberries and bitters into the bottom of your glass, and use a muddler or fork to squish them into a paste. Add in 2 basil leaves and muddle again to release the fragrance. Add your ice and fill your glass up with tonic. Give a stir and place the remaining basil leaves on top for garnish. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Even though these G&T’s may just become a new crowd favorite, please remember to drink responsibly.

Holiday Floral Arrangements

December 18, 2018

Whether it’s a holiday dinner, or a boxing day get together, we are all bound to be hosting or attending a dinner party this season. Our dining tables become central to all gatherings with family and friends. This year, as you’re putting a holiday table setting together, or getting reading to head to another dinner party, don’t hesitate to make a holiday floral arrangement. Adding a floral element to your table is an easy way to elevate your space. By adding a pop of color, your table is not only brighter, but the freshness of the spruce, cedar, and eucalyptus will add a wonderful fragrance to your home. I’ve also found that giving my friends and family a holiday arrangement is better than a gift!

Flowers have the ability transform a space. Whether you want to make a specific centrepiece for your dinner setting or simply liven up your table throughout the season, having the right shape of arrangement can make all the difference.

We prefer to match our style of arrangement with the table we have. For instance, if we have a rectangular table, like the Florence Rectangular Dining Table, we’ll make a longer arrangement to take advantage of the table length.

For this arrangement, we opted for an oval vase. Starting with foliage, we placed pieces of spruce, cedar, eucalyptus and pine together to form a sturdy base for our flowers. We then added in red daisies, white chrysanthemums, and freesia’s. Our final touches were some red winterberries for an added festive feel. Feel free to use your own variety of flowers and foliage- after all, this is all about customizing your space for the holiday season!

The same process can be used when creating a circular arrangement. You can determine the size of your arrangement based on whether or not you want your arrangement to be on your table during the main course. We opted for a smaller sized arrangement for the Fenwick Round Dining Table so that we could have space for our place settings.

When making circular arrangements, I find it best to start with a making a tape grid. I do 5×5 sections across my vase. This will aid in arranging the flowers and keep them in place afterwards! If you do choose to make a grid, pour in your water after creating the grid. This will ensure that your tape sticks to the vase and does not peel off.  Now, you can add in your foliage base. We used the same foliage as above (cedar, spruce, and eucalyptus). When you are happy with your foliage base, you can begin to add in your larger flowers (in this case the red daisies). Follow up with some more delicate flowers (freesias and chrysanthemum) after and add in your winterberries as the final touch!

Happy Holidays!

How To: Style the Navy Plunge

October 22, 2018

Plunge Navy Living Room

The Plunge Sectional has been our most popular sectional for years. Our customers love the soft cushions and how quickly they sink into them. This year, we’ve released a new color- navy! While navy is one of the trending colors of 2019, it can also be one of those colors that is perceived to be harder to style than others. This blog post will break down how the Plunge Navy Living Room Shot was created at our most recent photoshoot.

When choosing the seating to your living room, there are often a few things you want to think about: what’s the purpose of your room and how many people are you going to be seating at a time? If your living room has to be a functional space for both your family and your dinner parties, having a variety of seating functions is going to aid in making sure your space can be transitional.

St Anne Club Chair Brown

Moreover, we like having different options for seating because it allows for fluid conversations. Not all your seating has to be once color. The additional chair you choose, whether it be an arm chair or a club chair, does not have to match your sofa or sectional, but transition well into your space. Our designer paired the Plunge with organic wooden tones in the brown leather of the St Anne Club Chair for this reason and to expand the color palate we had.

Colvin Shelf W/Drawers

Storage is a very important component to any room. Since we picked a coffee table that does not have an inside storage component, we wanted to add another storage option. The Colvin Storage Unit boasts three spacious drawers and multiple shelves making it, what we believe to be, the perfect storage solution for this space.

Colvin Shelf W/Drawers

In our last blog post, we talked about how the little details can make a big difference. Adding accessories that bring together your space can be a lot easier than it seems. We chose our gold spheres, golden bull, and squirrel sculptures to keep adding in warm tones that contrasted the cool blue of the Plunge Sectional. The orange and blue binding of the books also aids in creating a stark contrast to each other.

Plunge Sectional Navy

Contrasting colors are a great way to add personality to your space. We chose orange to contrast the navy because they oppose each other on the color wheel. Opposing colors have the tendency to pop out in your space and can therefore, become your focal points. Take these two pictures below for instance, the orange pillow in the top image stands out from the blue pillows in the second.

Plunge Sectional Navy

Here at Moe’s, we have a wide variety of lamb fur and goat fur pillows. These pillows are great for adding texture to your space in a variety of colors and sizes.

Moe's Home Pillows

If adding a contrasting color isn’t your style, and you prefer a monochrome or toned-down look, different variations in blue will pair well with the Plunge too.

Pasquale Single Layer Pendent Lamp

Let’s talk about lighting. Lighting can, at times, be the make or break of a room. While designing this room, our designer opted for a more rustic piece with cool chestnut tones and iron hardware. Even though the Pasquale Single Layer Pendent Lamp, is more traditional in its design, when paired with this contemporary ensemble, it ties together the room giving it a transitional cozy feel.

SMALL DETAILS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

September 24, 2018

Sometimes our spaces just need a little bit of TLC.

In my house, spring cleaning has always been very important, but whatever happened to the fall refresher? Our living rooms are where we spend a lot of time with our family and friends. Over time, these spaces can get a little bit too lived in. However, this doesn’t mean that we have to go about redoing the entire space. Sometimes, adding some TLC can make a world of a difference. There are several ways to approach refreshing your space- one of the best is by looking at what you use and what you don’t use. Most often, we find things that we have outgrown and they’ve ended up collecting dust and adding unnecessary clutter to our spaces. Think about what you need versus what you don’t. For instance, adding a side or accent table can give you an organizational hub and a pop of color to your space that might be feeling a little bit too cluttered these days.

Tobin Living Room

Paintings are a great way to establish a color palate or tie your room together. We chose the Euphoria Wall Décor because it brought together the golden hues of the Kettel Accent Table. Adding a painting that has hints of gold into a room that is already defined by the warm wooden tones, draws your space together giving it a sophisticated and finished feel.

Kettel Accent Table

Table top accents are also a great way to add life to your space. Working with the warm tones of our painting, we added the Titan Vase and this Sax Player Statue. As decorative elements, both these items work well within the space as they tie together the natural tones of our chosen color palate.

Sax Player Statue

Throws, pillows, and poufs are also a great way to add style to your space, especially on a budget. Our Lamb and Goat Fur Pillows and Poufs (yes, we really do have it all), come in a variety of colors that are perfect to mix and match to achieve your perfect style combination. We chose light natural tones to add texture, while maintaining this design’s organic feel.

Tobin Coffee Table and Accents

We also find that by adding a few tabletop accents, we are giving our spaces an artistic flare, while maintaining a simple design. We chose to add pieces from the wooden animal collection as well as Iron Orb Black Marble (pictured above), because they complement the natural and industrial elements of our room.

Wooden Rhino and Elephant

The last thing we did was add a new floor lamp. The Spotlight Floor Lamp was the perfect addition to this living room because its black exterior matched the Kirby Sofa, while its light brass interior pulled out the warm hues of the Tobin Collection.

Tobin Living Room

You don’t have to go all out and buy a new living room set. Accessories are a great way to add pops of color for a fraction of the price. Add a painting, some new plants, pillows or a new lamp to keep your space bright during the fall season. If you find yourself having a hard time with finding a solution that works for you, take a picture of the room you want to accessorize and one of our sales associates will be sure to help you find you some incredible options that suit your style and personality.

The Province: Fairways showcases touches of glam

March 30, 2018

At Fairways, Zenterra’s planned community of townhomes overlooking Surrey’s Peace Portal Golf Course, designer Gene Guindon had fun with creative pairings of contrasting materials as he embraced the return of luxury and glamour. “​Velvet is back at the right time,” says Guindon. “The design industry has definitely headed back to adding a little more luxury and glam.” He notes that the return to super soft materials in home accents around the home was inevitable after the popularity of mid-century and industrial design took hold.
