Decorating a new-build home? Steal designer Jenna Cadieux’s brilliant tips on how to create an inviting atmosphere in a contemporary space using modern furniture, a mix of materials and texture.

By painting the French doors a dark color, Jenna was able to create a focal point. In the principal bedroom, Jenna freshened up pre-existing furniture with colorful throw pillows, soft drapery and new table lamps. In the spa-like ensuite, glass mosaic tile anchors the vanity wall, and is complemented by lucite used in the mirror’s frame, side table and accessories.
