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.

Get Your Patio Summer Ready!

Summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to get ready for outdoor entertaining, evening lounging, and barbecues! To get ready for patio season, we have put together some tips that will give you a head start.

 

Post-Winter Clean Up & Inspection

First, and most importantly, doing a maintenance check and a post-winter clean-up is a crucial starting point. This involves removing dead branches and pruning and re-planting where necessary. While doing so, make sure to conduct a critter check – unwanted guests should not partake in your outdoor entertaining. Post-winter cleaning should also include getting your grill ready for the season to make sure it is in a good working state before you make any dinner plans.

 

Patio Furniture

After completing all the cleaning and inspecting, it’s time to bring out your patio furniture. Once again, it will most likely need some cleaning after months of being in storage. When putting together your outdoor space, remember that the  same rules apply to outdoor seating areas as they do indoors. Make sure you have a focal point such as a nice view, a fire pit, or a colourful patio rug, around which you will centre your patio furniture.

 

Personalizing Your Space 

Don’t forget to add personality and style to your patio! A great way of doing so is by adding a patio rug to your outdoor space. Not only will it add colour, but it will tie your whole space together. If your goal is to add some vibrancy and texture to your patio space, then we suggest our brand new Faux Grass Meets Fashion patio rugs! These beautiful outdoor rugs feature vibrant green faux grass mixed with neutral flatweave in fresh nature inspired designs.

Design Advice: Preparing for Spring 2015

March 20th marked the official start of spring, and you know what that means: cleaning, organizing, and refreshing! Need a push? Below are three quick tweaks to make your interior design go from winter ready to warm weather fabulous.

 

1. Embrace the Outdoors

Incorporate little bits of nature into your home design by decorating with flowers, branches or fruits. Even the tiniest touch of the outdoors reminds you that the seasons are changing.

2. Switch up your area rug

Looking for an easy and affordable way to freshen up your home for the new season? Switch up your area rug! We just introduced our latest collection: Vintage Fusion.  Our Leola area rug will bring an elegant look to your outdoor patio space or deck, plus it’s reversible so you can get two looks in one!

3. Break out the Color

It’s finally time to remove all the thick blankets and heavy throw pillows that were needed to fight the winter cold! Longer days and warmer temperatures make spring the best time to play with color. Bring in bright airy curtains and add little pops of color throughout the room to create an atmosphere that screams spring.
