bold and colourful summer accents

For a lot of people (including myself) bright colours are often hard to commit to in a home! I’m all for neutrals (have you seen my apartment?!) however I am a firm believer that having fun colourful accents is key to finishing off a room. For neutral lovers trying to venture into the colour world, one of the easiest places to start incorporating bolder shades is on your patio! I recently did a segment on the Marilyn Denis show all about fun, new colourful outdoor furniture & accessories. Take a look to see some of my favouirte pieces coming out and where I suggest using them.

spring on clean


Confession time: Spring cleaning is not my forte. I love to zero in on one problem area and give it the necessary elbow grease to get it pristine again. I always feel so accomplished afterward and I’m done before I know it. But a top-to-bottom clean is such a big task that I find myself cutting corners, coming out of the experience as drained as I’ve ever been but without any sense of accomplishment. So this year, having stalled for a couple of week, I decided to think outside the box and invite a cleaning service (not the easiest thing for a housekeeping columnist to admit, but there you have it). I had serendipitously chanced upon Aspen Clean‘s booth at the Green Living Show a few weeks ago, and decided to give it a try.

lucky finds: 5 bright green home accessories

Lucky Charms cereal may not actually be Irish, but when I first caught sight of the gem-inspired Jonathan Adler brass box below, I couldn’t help but think back to my favourite childhood breakfast…likely because the decorative boxes also come in pink and blue.

In honour of St. Patrick’s Day (and emerald green being a paint colour to covet this year!) we’ve rounded up five bright green accessories that are sure to make a statement.
