Pretty in Pink Easter Décor ideas

Easter is two months away, but you would think it was just around the corner by the home décor displays at Winners.

While most of us are likely wishing winter was behind us, the first day of spring is still 40 days away.  In the meantime, why not brighten up your home and escape the February blahs with whimsical bunny rabbits, charming Easter baskets and pink or blue dishes.

Not ready to commit to Easter décor, yet? Try bringing spring indoors with pale-coloured flowers, porcelain doves, milky white figurines or decorative bird cages.

Highlights from the International Design Show in Toronto

Wandering through the display kitchens and bathrooms, flipping through fabric swatches and paint chips at the International Design Show is an annual tradition for me. I’m always looking for ‘inspiration’ and that one unique piece for my place.

This year’s show featured beautifully, hand-crafted, wooden furniture perfect for your summer home (if you’re lucky enough to have one).

Sticking with the cottage theme, Urban Barn showed off its beach and nautical inspired pillows, throws and accessories for your living room, bedroom or home office.

If ‘anchors’ aren’t your thing, there were also plenty of ‘Canadiana’ cottage accessories on display.

I don’t know about you, but I sure am ready for summer. So too, are the designers at the show. A touch of outdoors was brought indoors for those already shopping for patio furniture.

Before I was done strolling up and down the aisles, I came across this napkin and thought to myself, ‘this is why I come to the design show.’ Where do you find your inspiration?
