I had a great afternoon down at my local HomeSense, choosing my Top Picks and helping shoppers solve their interior design & home buy dilemmas, finding myself rummaging through treasures to find 'on trend' bargains and helping design savvy clients select the perfect partnering items for challenging rooms.
The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors. Similar to fashion, it's unlikely that many of us can get a whole new wardrobe each season, so it is all about ways of updating our spaces with small accessories - and perhaps a few big splurges along the way!
I'm a self-confessed colourphobe when it comes to interior design. If it's not in the taupe, grey, white, or from the 'neutral' family, I'm usually not listening! Now, as we begin to embrace the new season here at Butterfly Lane, I am determined to also embrace the subject of colour - and injecting it in to interior design.
Turning your pad into a fabulously stylish abode is what decorating is all about. Whether you've got a McMansion or a one bed apartment, be it your own or borrowed, whether you're decorating the loo or library it's the details (mementos, personal treasures, books, lighting, plus that hammered tin bowl you picked up from a far flung joint in India) that bind a space together and add the wow factor. It's called giving a home a heart and soul and it's the trend of the moment.
