Rainy Day Blues – Turned Around!

We’re all enjoying the peak of summer regardless of weather – but the rainy days are bringing on a bit of the blues.

What better time to get inspired and add a little life to your spaces with a new neutral – BLUE!

Soft shades of blue have “worked their way into our hearts” for years now, and have more than earned their place in any design style and space. Here’s a great article on “Duck-egg-blue” and some great ideas on how to incorporate it into your home.


Using Blue as a Neutral:

Try soft blues and navy as the neutral in your space, and accent with just about any colour! Reds, yellows, greens – go wild or stay quiet, your choice.

Choose the Right Chair

Here’s what you need to know if you’re looking for an additional seat or two in your home:

Questions to ask yourself:

What scale am I looking for in a chair in relation to the rest of my space?

What will this chair most likely be used for? Conversation? Reading? Taking a snooze?

What style am I looking for/What is the style of the room?

Below are some of our favourite styles and fabrics!
