Hey everyone! Welcome back for 2019.
It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by. For us, 2018 was full of growth. Looking back, we have been so lucky to have worked for some really great clients. From starting the year off by organizing closets and rearranging furniture to finishing off with all kinds of staging and styling projects – our team has had a taste of it all! While we still offer styled organizing, we have shifted our focus to design, styling and staging.
The video below highlights some of our favourite moments of this previous year! Just click the play button to take a peek.
There are some other wins we want to celebrate:
You can take a glimpse of the before and after at this lovely home! How a fresh coat of paint, some new shelves and some furniture makes all the difference!
We also want to highlight what a difference organization and new pieces meant for this amazing little sewing room!
We assisted Yes Chef in the redoing of their store layout and theme!
We got to work with the Abbotsford Food Bank and
Ceramex to create the look for Toys for Tots!
We also started this blog this year, welcomed Julie to our team running our blog, and doing photography and videos for us! AND we have now had the amazing Marnie on our team for 2 years!
We want to thank you all for following along on our journey. It has been fun showing you what we have been up to. We have been working very hard on a little something behind the scenes that we just can’t wait to share with you in the next couple of days. Stay tuned for the big announcement on Tuesday, January 15!
We cannot wait to tell you what has been going on, but that will have to wait for next time! Happy New Year!

'Welcome back to the blog!
Are you wanting to throw a New Year's Eve Party, but wanting it to be new and fresh compared to other years?
We were in the same spot! So we want to show you how we did it simply, but differently! We know entertaining and styling your home can be tiring, so we kept our look for New Years simple and easy to accomplish!
We thought balloons would be the perfect touch for our New Years Bash, so we went full out for them! We based them off the colours we wanted to use, which was black, white and gold. As you may know by now, we love neutrals that can be used over and over again for any occasion so that we can feel good about the key items we choose, and balloons are no different!
We picked up these simple decorations from Homesense and they ended up being perfect! And you could also make them yourself if you wanted, there are a ton of videos out there on how to make decorations and banners just like this. We hung most of our decorations against the wall so that we could have a fun photo wall for the evening.
We thought for this party we could plan to have simple cupcakes, throw in a charcuterie board, some Rosé, fun present games throughout the evening, and if you wanted, you could even put little papers inside the balloons with little prizes on them so people have to pop the balloon to see what they won! Or you could write out your own fortunes on them and then pop the balloons to see what the New Year may bring. The options are endless when you have a good crowd and an entire room filled with balloons!
Oh and did I mention we had some glitter? Can you even ring in the new year without glitter? We don't think so!
Well that's it from us this week! We'll be posting again soon about some exciting things happening in the New Year for us, so stay posted! It's very exciting!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Refined Space Blog.
Stuck on what to give this Christmas or how you can give back? Well good news, we have some answers for you!
This week, with Christmas around the corner, we wanted to highlight a few ways that you can give and give back at the same time. All of these companies operate largely off donations, and for Siempre and Bocaru every purchase you make has a percentage of proceeds that support organizations around the world!
At the Refined Space, we strongly believe in supporting locally and globally by making wise purchases that are safe for the workers, sustainable, and can be staples that can be used for any occasion.
If you keep scrolling, you'll see the organizations and local businesses we love and want to support!
