Over the last year as our world has stopped, shifted, and tried to get back to some semblance of normal, I’ve used the power of ritual to help me navigate the uncertainty. Simple things like creating time and space to journal in the morning, lighting a candle in my office at the start of the day, and an afternoon walk, have helped create intention and routine in my days.
And just like that it’s February! I’m not entirely sure where January went, but I’m not mad about it. February means we’re closer to spring, longer days, warmer temperatures and yes, Valentine’s Day. Truth be told I’m not one to typically decorate for Valentine’s Day, but in extraordinary times, I find myself doing extraordinary things. For instance, my Christmas tree is still up! So I figured I would leave it up, add some hearts to it and enjoy it for a little while longer, because why not? If you’re inspired to sprinkle some Valentine’s Day inspired decor throughout your home, I’ve rounded up some of my favourite finds below.
I don’t typically decorate my place for Halloween. Mostly because I’m a chicken and don’t like scary things! But I can appreciate the creativity others bring to their homes during the season. Especially those that create spaces that still feel elegant and elevated. I’ve rounded up some of my favourites in case you’re looking for a little last minute inspiration.
