Seeing as today is the first day of Spring, it is just about time to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor spaces. It can sometimes be a challenge to create a comfortable, yet stylish outdoor space as items can be expensive and budgets don't always stretch far enough to be able to fully furnish your entire backyard! Whether you are looking to create an outdoor eating area, or wish to design an entire outdoor living room, these spaces can be GREAT for the summer months (really - they end up being an extension of your home) and I guarantee you will spend A LOT of your time out there!
There are TONS of places to look for outdoor furniture and accessories. Stores like Homesense have a great selection of smaller items, large department stores carry furniture collections, you can find super stylish entertaining and dinnerware items at your local grocery store (Provigo & Loblaws), and even more affordable retailers have great options - Target (sad face) and Walmart (which I hate but you can probably find decent options if your budget is limited).Read More
Sometimes the simplest changes can make a huge impact. Take for example, switching the colour of your front door. You don't necessarily need to purchase an entirely new front door if you are looking to make a change to the outside of your home. Painting your front door a bold colour can make a huge difference to the look of your home!
There are so many amazing colours to choose from and your front door is the perfect place to go bold! Older wood doors are super easy to paint and look great in a high gloss finish. Benjamin Moore's Aura Grand Entrance paint is the absolute best. It comes in a satin or high gloss finish and is available in any colour! The high gloss gives a luxurious look that will surely make a great first impression.Read More
