Spring 2010 HomeSense Picks

One of the great parts of my job is getting out and about and attending press previews. It can be a bit tempting at times — seeing all the fabulous new home bits before they hit the retail level makes me want to redo my space! Recently, I attended the HomeSense preview for Spring/Summer 2010 and it didn’t disappoint. Have a look below at some of the products featured — the look is fresh and colourful and very, very livable.

These items will start rolling out to select stores in March, so keep an eye out for any pieces you might have to have.

The whole natural curiosities trend has really taken off and framed butterflies are a classic — I love the unmatted option shown on linen here.

This desk is so simple, and in grey, who can resist?

Mixing nautical and denim is clearly a trend. Still, what I was really drawn to here is the off-white knit wool pouf. It has such a modern look. I will be hunting for this come March!

The textiles shown are super fun this season — so mixed and colourful. Consider these as fun additions to the top of a bed or a kitchen/dining table. And check out the rug — too cute!

Photo Blog February 9 HomeSense Greenhouse

This is crazy, but kind of amazing if you had the room — a really well designed metal greenhouse. Perfect at the cottage. The piece is designed with a sliding barn door frame, and constructed so glass can be added easily to the frame. So fun. Designer playhouse, anyone?
