Easter Brights

With Easter Weekend only two days away, we thought we would share some colourful Easter décor inspiration.  Whether you are hosting a simple brunch, or an elaborate dinner, there are so many easy and creative ways to add some bright Easter colours to your table setting.

We love the table setting below:

Happy Easter everyone!

 

Home Décor Trend: Bright Pops of Colour

It’s been a long and grey winter ­- a VERY long and grey winter. And now we are heading into the greyness of April showers. That is why we are so excited about this latest trend! Bright pops of colour have been seen everywhere this spring, from the runway, to the home. What better way to shake off the cold winter months than with a big splash of colour! Get yourself excited for the upcoming patio season with the bright inspirations below.

Fashion Week Trends: From the Runway to Your Home

In a flurry of heels, colours, and prints, World MasterCard Fashion Week has come and gone yet again in Toronto. Here at KORHANI home, we love fashion and couldn’t help but pay close attention to the trends on display for Fall 2014. We’ve paired them below with our on-trend area rugs!

 

Earthy Knits

Earth tones were everywhere in the shape of chunky knits. The KORHANI home Grirar area rug from the Whispering Shades collection fits the trend perfectly.

 

Lunar

There were plenty of large prints on the runway including birds and wolves, but we couldn’t help but notice this lunar print.  It’s reminiscent of KORHANI home’s Gerardo rug from the Nocturnal collection.

 

Neutral Glam

 

There were plenty of neutrals on the runway, but designers were glamming them up with embellishents, sparkles, and metalics.  The KORHANI home Tana rug from the Allure collection is right on trend with gold and cream.

 

Moody Black

Black and leather set a moody tone on many runways. Get in touch with your inner darkness with KORHANI home’s Zedock rug from the Nocturnal collection.

 

 

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 Style: Before & After

While some may argue that an all white room is chic, others might say bor-ing! If you agree with the latter, breathe some life into a plain white room by adding playful pops of color.

After: arm chair in Cherry, jossandmain.com; Sandwell rug, KORHANI home at Rona; floral pillow, Zinc Door.

When you have the itch for change, just switch the key pieces with a different accent color. Easily and affordably switch out your rug, throw pillows or vase for something fresh and new.

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
