There are a few things that always mark the start of a new year … a fresh day timer, new set of goals and a new selection of colours of the year. While I can’t say my design decisions are overly impacted by the colour announcements, I do love seeing what everyone is forecasting. The chosen colours are often reflective of the what we’ve experienced in the previous year and the hope for the future. After a year like 2020, I think the selections for 2021 are especially hopeful and inspiring. Scroll through and let me know your favourite!
When it comes to decorating for the holidays, it’s easy to go overboard. For some that’s the name of their game, and I relish in their enthusiasm and joy. I however err on the side of simple, classic and neutral holiday decor. Layering in natural elements and a bit of sparkle to things I already have, to create an accessible and elegant celebration.
Designer Orsi Panos does just that in her own home and I couldn’t be more in love.
There is no denying my love of neutral spaces has grown over the years. There is something so timeless and elegant about a space layered in neutral tones and textures. Add beautiful worn elements, like wood, stone and antique pieces and you’re likely to see me salivating. Today’s Inspired Interiors feature, Neutral Love, is just such a space. Designed by homeowner Sheila Bouttier, this home is a lesson in working in a neutral palette with black accents that keep the home from feeling boring. Truly one of my favourite home tours to date.
