Spring is finally here! Our Canadian snow banks are slowly melting away. The snow boots give ways to swanky “billy boots” instead and you could not see me happier!
With the arrival of the longer days and warmer weather, a feeling of change always inhabits me too. It starts slowly with a little Spring cleaning…that always ends up in a massive overhaul of cupboards and bags full of barely used things to the Salvation Army. I am not compulsive, I merely like my living spaces to be streamlined and airy, even with 3 kids around.
So what’s in store for this coming season? Well, for me, it will be in the details. The tiny attentions that I never either had time or the budget to address. A comfy throw on the couch, bright cushions, and long and bare linen drapes are a good place to start.
Natural fibers and textures are a sure value too if you are in the market for new pieces of furniture.
And because our warm season is so short here in the land of the caribou and the igloos – oh well let me indulge in ALL the clichés! I will indulge in an island-style net over our comfy bed. A very contemporary décor might not be optimal for such an accessory, but in my century old home, it will OH SO nicely!
Happy Spring, full of blooms and wonders – and a little decorating in the midst of all of it!
