new decor bits in Halifax!

This week, I thought I’d share a few bits of design & decor news happening here in Halifax!

Floors Plus Bayers Lake – all bout floors, right? Nope. Look again. By now you probably know that Floors Plus ( is the expert in all things flooring. You may even already know about their Hunter Douglas gallery of window treatments. But did you know that they now have a lighting section? How about the great new furniture section? If you went to the Home Show you may, if not, here are the deets:

Floors Plus Bayers Lake would like to take this opportunity to introduce another plus to our extensive flooring showroom with the new addition of Style 52, which offers the very best in lighting and furniture featuring Besa Lighting, American Leather and Natuzzi.

• Besa Lighting ( offers a choice for lighting solutions in design, function and quality…a myriad of unique luminary styles, plus glass and metal finishes and lamping types.
• American leather ( featuring contemporary sofas, sectionals, recliners, chairs and comfort sleepers in several hundred grades and color. Just new for those who love the feeling of soft chenille or the eye popping joy of pattern our products are now available in over 450 fabric options.
• Natuzzi combines detail in design and Italian flair for everyday living offering a choice of sofas, chairs, coffee tables and lamps.

Bouclair Home – opened just over a week ago. For you Haligonians, it’s right next to the Zellers in Bayers Lake. If you took a dash of Ikea’s home décor section, a pinch of the bedding section, a lot of the window treatment section including hardware, and over ready to hang curtain options, and threw in a smidge of lighting and artwork, you’d have Bouclair Home ( It’s bright, clean and colorful. It says it’s typical clientele is “a trendy woman who knows what she likes in both merchandise and in price.” Check it out.

Interior Fusion Resource Centre – rumor has it that the first independent “trade only” resource centre east of Montreal will be opening somewhere in Dartmouth in Spring 2010. It will offer a whole lot of lines to industry professionals – fabrics, décor, wall coverings, rugs, furniture and more. rouge will keep you posted!

So, it appears that spring has sprung in Halifax and it’s time to get out there and refresh your living spaces.

If you need some help, just give rouge a call…!
