April-May 2022 | IT’S A COLOURFUL LIFE
Soon, we’ll be wowed by colour everywhere we look outdoors. After months of grey and white, spring colour arrives as a bit of a surprise. Is the world really this vibrant? It is! The artist Wassily Kandinsky once said, “Colour is a power which directly influences the soul.” Many designers agree. If you’ve been colour shy but want to give it a try in your home, be fearless. Follow RuPaul’s philosophy: “Life is about using the whole box of crayons.”
March 2022 | GENTLE GESTURES
Grand statements and gut renos aren’t always necessary or possible. Take a lesson from stylists: elevate the style of a space – and your mood – with thoughtful touches. A container of blooms grouped with objects that invite inspection and retrospection really does affect how we experience our home. Likely you have what you need hiding in plain sight. Reimagine, regroup and rearrange for a new look, and maybe even a new outlook.
January-Feb 2022 | GREEN ENERGY
In the midst of grey skies and white snowy expanses, the palette of a Canadian winter is relieved by green. Our dependable, much-loved conifers – spruce, pine, fir – dot the landscape, ever green, reminding us that seasons change and winter eventually gives way to spring. Why wait? Bring green – the colour of 2022 – to your rooms with plants, cut blooms and decorative accents. See green’s beauty, feel its energy.
