Fresh Flowers

With farm stands popping up in every neighbourhood this summer, it’s easy to stop and pick up local flowers. Look for bright blossoms like daisies, celosia or purple coneflowers and pair them with a clear vase. This will add a seamless pop of colour to any room. We suggest brightening up your entry way, window sills and bathrooms to add a fresh perspective and energy to sometimes forgotten spaces. Try fresh cut lavender in the kitchen or sunflowers in the foyer.

Don’t forget the Door

One of the simplest ways to breathe a fresh breath of life into your home is by starting at the beginning. Bold front door colours are gaining popularity in more and more neighbourhoods. Therefore, if you dont have the time for a whole front lawn landscaping project, painting is the way to go! In addition to adding colour, it can really change your perspective. Choosing a bold paint colour for your front door is a sure way to add renewed charm to your home.
