Cheerful Spring Finds
I think I speak for all of us when I say, I am done with winter. I can barely stand the sight of my winter coat and my wellies seem to stand at attention by the front door in endless mockery. That’s why I’ve decided to declare it spring in my home and closet — weather permitting or not. If I dress and decorate like it’s spring, the warm weather will follow — right?
Here are a few items on my wish list that would bring some spring cheer into my apartment, even if we do get another April snowfall here in Toronto.
I am in love with this Ted Muehling glass tableware! Delicate, handblown glass is decorated with intricate, hand-painted butterflies that appear as if they came to rest there momentarily and may flutter off at any moment.
The watercolour style of this pillow has a modern twist, and the colour palette is quintessentially spring.
The colours in this bowl are so dreamy. I feel like I should be eating yiaourti out of it on an oceanside terrace in Santorini — but I’ll settle for breakfast in my Toronto apartment.
This lacquered wood peacock tray would add a punch of colour to a coffee table, or brighten up breakfast in bed — the ultimate indulgence in my books!
I’d love to add these jewel-like knobs to bathroom cabinets or an antique dresser.
I’m a big fan of colourful, mismatched plates and these would fit right in with my current collection.
