What's Up at Jackie Glass Inc.?

Wow! We've been busy Jackie Glass Inc! 

The Merry Month of May was a very busy but wonderful month for all us here at J G & Associates and we're so excited to tell you all about it!

The month started with a shoot at my home for my monthly segment on Cityline. Click here to see the segment.

Check out the great furniture I featured on the show that are designed to make your techy family members comfy. Left to right: The Spider Phoebe by Limitless Canada Inc., Boss Sofa Plus with adjustable back rests from House Warmings and Ikea's Stockholm high-back armchair. All of these furniture pieces offer firm head and back support, durable construction and quality fabrics to ensure hours of gaming, watching tv and working on laptops and iPads in comfort.

Following the Cityline shoot, my favourite photographer Paul Chmielowiec dropped by to photograph my latest home renovations that I'm excited about showing you soon! Stay tuned!!!

Burlington Mall - Pillow Talk Contest

I had a great time working with Kim Lorande at the Burlington Mall on their month-long Pillow Talk contest! I'm looking forward to meeting the lucky winner of the $5,000 (holy cow!) bedroom makeover for their complementary consult. We enjoyed meeting all who attended my Pillow Talk finale presentation on May 21! It was a delight to show everyone some of the great finds I discovered at A Room of My Own, check out the amazing "Princess Castle" below, HomeSenseClassique DecorTargetLiving LightingTeavanaClair de Lune and Bowring in the Burlington Mall. The soft gray colour I used on the wall of my stage below is Benjamin Moore Origins Stormy Monday. It'll work beautifully in any bedroom, especially when paired with crisp white linens and accessories.

Our latest model home- Grandfield Home's The Oakford in Markham

Our design team worked for months to create an exceptionally beautiful model home for Grandfield Homes in Markham. The entire month of May was spent working with the builder to get it completed and decorated for the grand opening May 31. It was a team effort that we're all proud of but special kudos have to go to our Design lead, Lisa Pearson who took charge of the final decor details of this large, 3-story 4,000 sq-ft model home in Markham. The home, finished last week, is gorgeous and to prove it, all 48 homes in the development sold out on opening day, May 31! We're shooting the house on June 6 so stay tuned to our website and FB to see the results!

    Agents camped out for a week before the Sat., May 31 grand opening. They all had several clients registered to see the house and didn't want to loose their place in line so had people take turns to do the night shift to save their seats. Insane!! No wonder the 48 homes sold out before the end of the day!! You can still see the house if you make an appointment with Grandfield Homes.

    The fantastic managers (and great movers!) Karen & Elizabeth and their muscle men brought in all the furniture from House Warmings in Oakville to decorate the entire house!

    The guys had a bit of help to get the dresser up to the third floor! Check back with us for the big reveal in mid June!

We're being featured in the Summer issue of Canadian Home Trends!

We're so excited about being featured in the upcoming summer issue of Canadian Home Trends magazine. Pick up an issue to see one of our favourite condo renos featured in the issue. We had a great time at the client's home shooting four videos last week for the publisher's new daytime talk show, The Marc & Mandy Show. Visit Marc & Mandy Show website for air dates and times. We wish them all the best!

What a fantastic time we've all had together in May! Thanks to everyone who partnered, helped and joined us in all the excitement! June is shaping up to be another jam packed month so stay tuned for more adventures from Jackie Glass Inc!
