  1. A rainbow of ticking at Sweet Violet

    January 13, 2015 by michaelpenneystyle

    How fun and refreshing are these colourful ticking pillow shams? The black and white is an elegant way to break up a master bedroom’s monochromatic bedding, and the fire engine red is the perfect statement for a little boy’s bedroom. Available at Sweet Violet, the standard shams are $49.50 each and the European shams are $69.50 each. What an easy and flexible way to introduce a new colour to your room!

  2. New Linen Curtains At Penney & Company!

    January 10, 2015 by michaelpenneystyle

    Is your house looking a little sad and bare now that your Christmas decorations are down and put away?  It’s a common syndrome and one with a solution – my January prescription includes and injection of pretty fabrics and soft colour!

    A great way to add softness, colour and a sense of completion to a room is to add lovely full length drapes.  Luckily we’ve just gotten a large shipment of gorgeous new drapes at Penney & Company!

    We’ve now got soft linen blend drapes in off white, grey-blue, flax and natural linen.  The perfect, elegant and subtle backdrop for your patterned bedding, rugs and cushions.  Custom drapes can cost a fortune but these 90″ long Canadian-made beauties are only $178 each panel!

    As always, we have lots of colourful, patterned and striped drapery panels too.  If you’ve got a blank guest room, unfinished living room or bare patio doors, these are a wonderfully simple and exciting solution!  From $98 per panel and all Canadian-made!

  7. Highlights from A Classic Christmas In Old Whitby!

    December 14, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Well we had a wonderful day in Historic Downtown Whitby today!

    It’s looking like a white Christmas so far and with the twinkle of lights in the shop windows and the sounds of carollers and a Salvation Army Band in the air, it was about as charming as it gets!  The old streets of Whitby were full of life as people bustled in and out of shops picking up last minute gifts and kids were greeted by Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Yes it was indeed A Classic Christmas In Old Whitby!  I hope it becomes a tradition don’t you?

    And if you missed out this year, you’ve got to come next time around and be a part of the community!

    Shoppers enjoyed deep discounts and a warm and cozy atmosphere at Pineapple Street

  10. Air Mattress Guest Room Ideas on Marilyn Denis

    December 10, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Today I was challenged with creating a cozy bed for extra guests over the holidays using an air mattress!

    The Marilyn Denis Show was all about being snowed in today and the entire audience, guests and Marilyn herself were outfitted in adult onesie pyjamas!  It was all about cozy creature comforts and a fun show all around.

    If you missed it, here’s a clip!
