Happy Birthday, Canada!

Korhani Homes is excited to celebrate Canada’s 148th birthday today! Many of our products are manufactured, right here, in Canada and what other ways to celebrate than some of the options mentioned below?

 

 

 1. Canadian Rugs

The Leola Outdoor Area Rug and The Barko Indoor Area Rugs (see below) add comfort and style to any area in the home. The wine red in the Barko Rug is perfect for that Canada Day  party as they remind everyone of the Canadian Colours while the Leola is reversible providing two elegant looks in one. Not to mention how soft piled and luxurious they are!

2. Hit the streets!

Make the best of it and enjoy the parades that your city has to offer. From street food and face painting for the kids, to live performances, each and every experience will be fun and memorable making it a Canada Day to remember for the whole family.

3. Indulge in good ol’ Canadian food

Canadians are known for their signature Poutines (origin: Quebec), pancakes with Canadian maple syrup, beaver tails, ketchup chips, bacon, mac & cheese, Nanaimo bars and more. Today is definitely the day to indulge in if not all, then at least, one of the signature Canadian foods. Celebrate in spirit by cooking with a loved one, going out to eat or even a fun little picnic.

4. Dress up!

Last but not least, don’t forget to dress up while celebrating this spirited holiday. Wear red, whites, and everything Canadian to help you and others around you get in the spirit!

Father’s Day Ideas

Father’s day is only a couple of days away!

For many, fathers are the people behind the scenes, the pillar of strength for the family, and the one you go to when there is something to fix in the house. Today we will share with you our gift ideas for your dad and ways you can make them feel appreciated.

Be Adventurous

Are there any out of the box ideas your dad may like? Anything that you can do together such as going for a long hike, or a road trip or maybe even skydiving! Make the day memorable by doing something extraordinary, this way your dad will definitely remember that day, spend quality time together and make memories.

Style His Office/Man-cave 

We know most dads are very low maintenance when it comes to decor and don’t follow the latest home fashion trends religiously. Freshen up your dad’s office by adding a few new pieces that will make the space feel new and fresh! A great and easy way to update a room is through rugs; they pull any room together. We have a few special styles for dad, the ones featured below that will make a great conversation piece.

Summer Barbecue 

You can’t go wrong with the classic summer barbecue idea. Get your whole family together, invite a couple close friends and have a barbecue for the dads. Make their favourite dishes and drinks.

It is time to celebrate all that fathers do for us.

Integrating Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

A beautiful outdoor space is now just as important as your indoor space and creating a flow between indoors and out can sometimes be challenging! KORHANI home has you covered though, as we are sharing our best tips to acheive a cohesive and stylish flow between indoors and out: 

Keep Close & Remove Barriers

When designing your outdoor space, keep it close to the indoor entertaining areas such as your kitchen or dinning room. This will provide you with the convenience of going from the kitchen to the patio without a long hike.

The best way to have your outdoor space flow with your indoor space is to literally open up your interior to the outdoors. Do not be afraid to use large pocket or accordion doors as they will remove physical barriers and let you enjoy both spaces together.

Let the Outdoors In 

The best way to combine the two spaces is to use to floor-to-ceiling glass or large panel windows to open up the view and make the walls, which can act as a barrier, disappear. When the space is opened up, it becomes much easier to create a flow between the indoors and out, as it allows you to use similar furniture and colour schemes.

Use Colour and Accessories 

A quick and easy way to integrate your indoor and outdoor spaces is to design both with complementary colours and materials. Keep it simple outdoors by relating your garden to your indoor space. Have a favourite flower planted in the garden?  Add one to a small pot and bring it indoors as well!

Use similar materials inside and outside to create a symmetrical flow and make sure to use a similar colour scheme. Matching area rugs are a great way of integrating outdoor and indoor spaces. Patio rugs are becoming so stylish that you will want to bring them indoors – which you can! And because they are built to last in the elements, it makes them extra durable for indoor use.
