Spring cleaning

While nations are encouraging social distancing and self isolation, it’s easy for us to let things get a little crazy around the house.
A great way to feel productive and pass the time is by cleaning your home and preparing for the new Spring season.
One way too look at Spring cleaning is that you are basically refreshing your space. One of the most tedious processes this time of year is getting rid of clutter that you don’t need. Spring is the time to throw out old furniture and replace it with something beautiful and new; like an area rug, a new coffee table, or a console table.
Fresh flowers are an excellent way to add colour and freshness to any room. Try switching out the covers on your throw pillows, and introducing pastels colors for a playful approach, or millennial pink for a feminine touch.
Another option is to change your accent wall colour – maybe use wallpaper with interesting floral print.
A clean house is important for the health and well-being of your entire family. Like the saying says, a clean home is a healthy home.

Spring, A New Beginning

We’re nearing the end of the Winter and Spring is on its way! It’s time to start getting ready for the new season by brightening up the house with some vibrant colours.

Picture a new sofa and some toss pillows for the room that you enjoy most. Maybe a sofa that reclines so you can set it in a way that fits you best, and will help you relax. That supple leather in a bold colour… Maybe something warm, maybe something cool, there’s plenty of colours to choose from.

Make it yours, the room where you can relax and be with company who will enjoy your space.

How to introduce colour in your space

When we decorate with neutral colors we create rooms that will never go out of style. Also, it’s a way to play it safe by not making mistakes. At the same time we add sophistication to the home. This doesn’t mean if we choose to give a touch of color to a room, that we will not be able to create a chic ambiance.
There are plenty of ways to add a pop of colour without getting too wild. I always suggest to start from the walls and the floors. Once we’ve picked all the neutral colors for them, we go to the next step and start with the furniture; continuing to keeping it neutral.
The fun starts when we have to decide what to do next! We can add accessories like toss pillows, throws, lighting – with a favorite colour or two-, an area rug with complementing colours, art work, natural plants and flowers. With these kinds of accessories, we are still playing it safe because you can always make quick changes when you want to freshen up the look.
But if you really want to go wilder, you can choose a piece of furniture in a bright color and use it as a statement, or a focal point. You can also paint one wall in a specific color. The most important thing is to make decisions that will make your lives better and more enjoyable. It is always worth it to take the risk and design a fun place to live.

Art With Personality

 

Art is a very personal thing.

No matter what decor you choose for your room, art always adds personality and personal taste. One should not be afraid to show the personality in choosing art pieces.

The only “rule” you might want to follow, is the size of the piece you put on the wall.

If you decide to decorate your family or living room space and put a painting on top of the sofa, make sure it is not bigger then the sofa itself. The artwork should be a few inches smaller on each side of the sofa. This way it will add to the decor of the room and not take away from the whole idea.

Colours are also important, but not as drastic if they don’t match the colours of the room.

Art is an expression of YOU, so don’t be afraid to show your preference and taste!

How to Add Character to a Small Living Space

 

Decorating a small living space can be a bit of a challenge.  You want to make it beautiful and interesting, but not seem cluttered.

Here are some simple tips to add personality and character to your small living space:

  • Show It Off:  Collect all your treasured books, photos, and objects and display them on floor-to-ceiling cubby shelves.  This will create a conversation area as well as provide some much needed storage.
  • Lighten It Up:  Use mirrors in varying shapes and sizes to add character as well as reflect light throughout your space.

  • Get Colourful:  Don’t assume that colours and patterns will make your space feel smaller.  Actually, furniture in colourful hues and bold patterned pillows and rugs will make a big impact in a small space.

  • Go Green:  Adding a touch of greenery by bringing in natural or artificial houseplants can add instant warmth to any space.

  • Add Ottomans:  These can perform double or triple duty such as extra seating, footrests, and even coffee tables, when you add a tray on top.  They can also add a pop if colour to your space.

Creating a space that’s full of character and reflects your unique personality doesn’t take Magic, just a little Smart Styling…Just remember, SMALL doesn’t have to mean BORING!!

Fabric Pilling

We call fabric pilling to the small visible balls of fiber that form on the surface of a fabric. It usually happens when there is a constant friction on it. There are a few reasons why the pilling occurs: the weave of the fabric, the type of the fiber, the friction caused by using the furniture.

When the weave of the fabric is tighter, the fibers can not come out to the surface. Cotton or linen make pilling less visible because the way they shed their loose fibers.

Pilling is not a fabric defect or fault from the manufacturer. It is a natural process caused by the wear and tear of the furniture. It doesn’t affect the durability of the fabric.

The good news is that it is easily removable: you can use a sharp razor, or you can use a fabric shaver which will remove the pilling without ruining the fabric.

Pilling may reappear but if it happens , you will have to repeat the process of shaving it off.

The fabric will stop pilling once all the loose fibers have been removed.
