Home & Fashion: Pastel Pretty

As we spring into warm-weather season, it’s officially time to put away those midnight blacks, dark browns and jewel tones, instead, opt for uplifting and soft pastels. Paired perfectly with florals, these two trends are made for each other. Take your colour inspiration from blooming tulips, cotton candy at country fairs and of course, Pinterest.

Home Décor: From Indoor Winter Living to Outdoor Spring Living

As the snow melts and the smell of spring is in the air, we anticipate spending more time living outside – on patios, at cottages and in our backyards. When decorating on a budget, it’s great to purchase items that are stylish but also serve you year-round.

Treated seats or tables: These tree stump tables bring a natural feel into your family room but are versatile enough to move into your backyard once spring rolls around.

Two-faced rug: UV-treated rugs can handle weather conditions but are also stylish enough to have inside your kitchen. Pull this rug out to your patio to maximize its functionality – while being assured it won’t fade. Flip-over for an inverse colour combo. korhani.com

Storage bench: Move this wooden bench with wicker storage baskets from your front foyer onto your deck or back porch. Great for storing outdoor toys, gardening tools or pet products. target.ca

Home tips: how to beat the winter blues

It’s the end of February and many of us are in the midst of the “winter blues”. Here are some tips for warming up your home and keeping your spirits uplifted!

1. Vacation photographs – showcasing happy (and warm!) memories from your favourite vacations.

2. Warm colours – adding accents to a room like a rug, throw pillows or blanket in warm tones.

3. Fresh flowers – picking up some fresh flowers can really brighten up a room and have you thinking of spring.

4. Fresh scents – lighting a cotton or ocean scented candle can have you thinking of summer. After all, smell is one of our senses that is linked to memory.

5. Natural light – exposing natural light and getting as much vitamin D as possible is key. Amplify the natural light effect with a decorative wall mirror.
