Yellow- My Spring Colour

   It has been a VERY long winter this year, but alas, it looks like spring has finally arrived! A little later than we'd all had hoped, but she's made it none the less.
 With spring, comes the transition from wintery pales to brighter and more playful spring colour palettes. My spring colour this year is yellow. It's bright, cheerful, energetic- and after that never-ending winter, I think we could all use as much sunshine in our lives as we can get!

Here is an assortment of yellow items that will help bring some sunshine, inside.

1. Print- Chapters Indigo 
2. Candles- Ikea
3. Pillow- Bed Bath & Beyond
4. Paint- 2021-30 Sunshine, Benjamin Moore
5. Rug- Ikea
6. Side Table- Ikea
7. Duvet Cover- Ikea
8. Chair- Lowes
9. Vase- Chapters Indigo
10. Fabric- Tonic Living

What are your favourite spring colours this year?

For the Love of Rugs

   Rugs, rugs, rugs! So far this month, rugs have become my favourite piece of decor. I'm not sure what has caused this latest obsession, but I'm going with it!
   Rugs are like pieces of artwork for your floor. They can help visually define a space, reduce echoing within a room, and add comfort to your feet, all while adding texture, pattern, and colour to help bring a space together.

   I could post a bunch of pictures of rugs that I've found -and believe me, they're all saved on my computer- but here are just a few that have caught my eye.

1. Ecarpet Gallery, Afshar
2. Home Depot, Painted Zig Zasg Multie
