Spring has Sprung! Time to redecorate!


It never fails, when spring rolls around I always feel like freshening up my home. Maybe with a fresh coat of paint in a fun, fresh colour, or perhaps a purchase of a new furniture item, something that gives a room new life. Whenever I switch up my décor I feel like I create a whole new, positive energy in my life. Which makes sense. I’m always saying, “A home should be the back drop to our lives” however, with our lives constantly evolving and changing so should our “backdrop”. It’s easy to get stuck in a life “rut” as well as a décor one. If you feel your life has gotten a tad “blah” perhaps it is time to rethink your space.



It’s on this note that I recently decided my life need a refresh. So I decided it was time to move into a new neighborhood and revamp my “backdrop”. I finally found a great new loft, minimal in design; it will be the perfect canvas for a fresh new décor look. Of course I’m bringing over some of my favourite pieces that I already own. I’ll be changing the look of some pieces with a little DIY and a lot of elbow grease! I also will be making some new, exciting purchases.


In my new space I have decided to create a “salon” type main space. I want to find some sort of adjustable seating, I’m thinking in white, that can be adapted depending on my entertaining needs. So far I love the MIX sectional by William. The shape is unexpected and I can configure it in a number of ways. 


I am also thinking about some classic seating pieces. I love classic lines of Alta Moda’s baroque looks. I would do this seating group in an antique gold arm and white fabric. That’s the best thing about working with Canadian manufacturers you can go make your pieces custom.


Well I better get packing! I move in 3 days! I will keep you updated on the redecorating of my place. Plus I will be announcing a few new exciting projects in the next few weeks. I will also be looking to answer your design and décor questions. Just post them up on the Quality Canadian Furniture Facebook page!
