  • HOW TO DECORATE FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS

    As busy as we are closing up our year, we can't stop thinking about the Christmas Holidays. In case you weren't aware, we are closed for two weeks to spend some quality time with our loved ones. However, we won't leave without giving you some inspiration for the holidays.

    Winter has arrived and holiday decorating is almost or already here. There’s nothing more exciting than putting up your Christmas tree while listening to some Michael Bublé. Wouldn’t you agree? 

    Listed below are 4 tips to get you ready for the holidays!

    1. Table Arrangement

    Planning on having the family over for dinner? Here's how to have the perfect table arrangement. Get a centerpiece for the table. We absolutely love the look of garland. Add a few candles, some berries, and your table becomes very festive already!

    2. Add a wreath

    Add a wreath to your front door to show some holiday spirit or better yet, hang some around the doors inside!


    3. Buy a Christmas tree & decorate

    There's nothing like a real tree! Yes, it's messy but the fresh holiday scents and the experience are completely worth it! You can pick out and even cut down your Christmas tree yourself at Quinn Farms. It's such a fun activity to do with the family or a loved one! Enjoy the time spent together decorating your tree with the endless possibilities of choices! I especially love this Winter Wonderland look!

    4. Light up your house

    If we were as patient as the person who decorated their home below, we would be welcome in Whoville! I've seen many houses over the past few years who take the time to show off their Christmas spirit and it's especially great for the little ones.

    Hopefully, these few tips inspire you to be a little more festive this year! Just a few weeks left until the holidays and we haven't even bought our tree or started decorating. We are always so last minute, but who has time when work never quiets down? On that note, we want to give many thanks to all our clients who have allowed us to grow and work on so many beautiful projects this year. Merry Christmas everyone!

  • HIBOU DESIGN & CO. 2017 REVIEW

    As the holiday season approaches, we can't help but look back on the year we're about to close. 2017 was an eventful one!

    It started with Eugenia giving birth to her second daughter, Billie, in January. Shortly after, we moved Hibou into our new office space - our first official office totally dedicated to our business. It took a lot of time to make it ours; renovations and all, and we're still not quite 100% done. Although it's taken a lot of hard work and patience, our office has been home to many laughs, great vibes and an overall happy working environment. We've been able to welcome our wonderful suppliers to our office for learning opportunities and to present new collections to us. We also finally have a space to store all of our samples and grow our inventory of small accessories. Our small team of three has grown closer and more efficient and everyone who walks in can feel that we have a great dynamic!

    During the course of this year, we've completed some pretty awesome projects ranging from small decor to full gut renovations. We've had the pleasure of connecting with our fantastic clients along the way, who we have not only built great relationships with but who have opened our doors to many much-appreciated referrals. 

    Our clients really trusted us to take risks and they allowed us to push them out of their comfort zones which produced some of our best work. It is what led us to be featured on the cover of Montreal Home magazine for our Bellay Street Project.

    Our internship program was also developed this year which introduced us to some impressive upcoming talent in our field. We're so excited to see who it brings to us in 2018.

    2017 started with a birth and will end with a birth since Korina is overdue and will be giving birth any day now to her second child! If we had to describe this year in one sentence, it would be the year of introductions and connections, refining our processes and building our team. It was a good year!

    Follow us on Instagram! Starting on December 27, we'll be counting down our top five projects of 2017! 

  • HALLOWEEN IS OVER WHICH MEANS....

    It's time to start decorating for CHRISTMAS!!! Okay, so I might be jumping the gun a little but don't judge me. If any of you have noticed, the stores are packed with Christmas stuff which makes this post 100% valid. 

    I'm not entirely into the big, over the top, red, green and gold traditional decorating. Sure, if you have the right house for it, then I'd say to completely rock that style. For those of you with more modern or eclectic spaces (me!) that don't know what to for the holiday season, here are 5 tips that can get you on the right path.

    Tip #1: Less is more.

    Tip #2: Don't be scared of bare or nearly bare wreaths and trees. Nature in it's simplest form could be all you need.

    Tip #3: Fake, white trees are tacky. I have yet to see a white tree that I like. I really tried to find examples of the best decorated white tree to maybe change my mind but no luck. You may think it's modern but they're really screaming cheap.

    Tip #4: Red is a strong colour. If your space doesn't have any red in it, I wouldn't put any on the tree. BAM! All of a sudden, all we see is the Christmas tree. So much for hiring that expensive designer.

    Tip #5: You can still be festive in a small space without having it take over your apartment.
