Moody Blues

OK, we are going to drop a style secret, here: Blue never goes out of style. It is the one colour that can be used for any gender, style, or design that is truly versatile. Light airy powder blue for a baby’s room, classic navy for a chic living room, medium steel blue for a…

Rose Quartz

Pantone released their “Color of the Year” will a little bit of controversay this year: they selected a blend of two colours! We are crushing on the rose quartz colour, and can really see it playing a role this year with such a fresh colour! From paint to small accents, rose quartz is an elegant…

Colour Comeback: Olive Green

Olive green never truly goes out of style- it’s a classic heritage colour that stands the test of time. But it is making more of a splash this year and we think this is a great (and easy) colour to incorporate into your decor without wanting to change it out with the seasons. Warm and…

Pass the Fromage!

We are crushing on a French influence, straight from the 18th century. French Provincial style steers away from the elaborate Parisian decor, with less frills and a more sophisticated simple approach. Carved scallops, painted furniture, and an affinity for layering soft neutrals mark this time period. With the French tendency to buck tradition and mix…

Throwback Thursday: Pink & Green

Throwback: Pink & Green An example of a trend coming and going is the very “trendy” green and pink theme of the 80’s. Nothing screams dated more than light pink and forest green mixed together, when done the wrong way of course!       Bold walls and colourful furniture was the style in the 80’s…
