Colour Trends: Green

January 24, 2019

We’re always looking for great ways to incorporate colour into the spaces we design and one trend we’ve been loving lately is green paint. We fell in love with green a few years ago but the trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down – we’ve been seeing it more and more all over Instagram and Pinterest, and it always seems to look fresh and interesting. We love working with green because it adds such a warm and earthy colour to a room, but it somehow still feels totally neutral.

Wallpaper used to have a bit of a bad reputation for seeming fussy or old-fashioned. Recently, though, it’s been making a major comeback. Gone are the days of bland, boring wallpaper. Today’s options are bold, trendy, and can make a big statement.

We’re often being told by friends and clients that finding art for your home can feel overwhelming. We get it, there’s a lot to consider here – from the style, to the colour palette, to finding the perfectly sized piece for the exact spot you want to hang it. Plus, since art can be expensive and is often very personal, it’s important to pick pieces that you absolutely love. Knowing where to start looking makes the process infinitely easier. We love each of the sources listed below because they all offer pieces that work for a range of spaces, budgets, and styles.

Cottage Escapes

January 4, 2019

Earlier this week, Jordy shared some of her dream winter cabins. If you read the post (or live in Toronto), you’ll know that this time of the year has us seriously longing to escape the city. While I (Alana) share Jordy’s love of cozy, snowy cabins, what I dream about during the winter is summer. I miss the long days, warm weather, and lazy weekends spent by the lake. There’s something so peaceful about being at a cottage – you’re surrounded by family, close to the water, and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Summer may be a couple (ok -more than a couple) of months away, but here are some stunning cottages that I wish I could escape to today!
