Cream, pale beige, forest green, deep navy blue, black, charcoal; they may be neutral, but they can convey so much emotion and mood when incorporated into the design of a room. People navigate towards neutrals for a reason; they provide a blank canvas, are uncluttered, clean, and simple. It doesn’t feel like a big commitment painting the walls white, vs painting a wall hot pink. You can easily change your mind about other design elements...

November 28, 201910 min

Bohemian style has a way of transporting you elsewhere; somewhere infinitely comfortable and textured. It makes you want to curl up with a book and a blanket, while burning some sage and listening to a vintage record. I wanted to find different approaches to boho style that didn’t include the same Moroccan floor pouf and fickle leaf fig tree that we’re so used to seeing on social media. Those things are beautiful, but there are...

Have you ever invited friends over for dinner, only to realize that someone has a food allergy (or more than one) and you’re worried about cooking for them? The feeling is not uncommon.

They’re bright and optimistic colours that spark joy, and feelings of positivity and empowerment. They are reminiscent of lighter times and convey a sense of nostalgia. It’s no wonder so many body positivity, female empowerment and other inclusive, progressive groups and companies have adopted these colours for their branding and...

A home inspection isn’t a legal requirement when you buy a home in Canada. Yet, it’s certainly a wise decision for the largest purchase you will likely ever make. Here are five reasons why you should opt for a home inspection when buying a home, even if it is a brand-new build. 1.    Things unseen The home you want to buy may have a gorgeous skylight, cathedral ceilings and a huge master bedroom.  But the...

There’s nothing like opening the front door or waking up in the morning to be greeted by a wonderful wafting scent. Scents can invigorate, relax, jog your memories, and tap into nostalgia. You can rotate them according to the mood you’re in, the mood you want to be in, the season, time of day, or even the atmosphere or tone you wish to create. With the growing popularity of diffusers and essential oils, there are...

There are few things that test the bond between people the way co-decorating a space will. You might imagine it to be a wonderful, collaborative exercise in expressing personal taste through home decor, but that’s a rookie mistake. Decorating with a partner is less aesthetic endeavour and more Art of War. Before you create the perfect-looking home, you’ll have to navigate incessant volleys of paint swatches, succulents, and decorative cushions hurled at you figuratively and...

Canadian cities have the dubious honour of featuring prominently in any discussion of the most expensive property markets in the world, news that shouldn’t be remotely surprising to anyone in the Great White North. The usual suspects—Vancouver and Toronto—appear all over the place of course, but there are quite a few other cities with price tags that may give you pause. Now, while property prices are pretty illuminating by themselves, they don’t quite tell you...
