While you're waiting for the winners to be announced, get to know the divine designer herself, and make use of some of her color tips to get started on your own room redesigns.We've been watching Toronto native Candice Olson tackle tough design problems on HGTV's Candice Tells All, and she always manages to inject personality and a unique flair into even the most difficult domestic overhauls. Ranging from traditional to high-glamour, her style always includes an eclectic mix of patterns, textures, and finishes, and the final products consistently reflect her clients' lifestyles and priorities. This design diva constantly reminds us that when your choices are carefully planned and you keep practicalities in mind, diving off the design deep-end can turn out perfectly fine.
Since 2005, Candice has launched and developed lines of exciting fabrics, furniture, lighting, and finishes. We've been seeing lots of these products pop up in Apartment Therapy readers' own spaces, so we already know you are big fans! She has also partnered with Benjamin Moore (the only paint she uses in her renovations) to select her favorite shades from their collections.
The hues in her collection are inspired by nature but, as you can see in her designs, make any room instantly feel sophisticated and urbane.
