Mother's Day Special ~ bluebellgray

Hello Thursday! With spring finally arrived in Toronto and Mother's Day is just around the corner, I am drawn to everything pastel and floral.  A couple of months ago I had the pleasure to meeting Wendy of bluebellgray for a delicious lunch at the fabulous Colette Grand Cafe (thanks Deb for having me!) and checked out their beautiful products in person at the launch party of the sixth floor at Hudson's Bay.

If you think floral is a dated design statement, well let me tell you these watercolor sensations at bluebellgray are definitely a breath of fresh air!

Before I share with you my favorites, here is a fun video of the inspirations and the making of bluebellgray.


I love vibrant hues and playful mixes of textures and patterns.  So when I saw this picture showcasing the refreshing and colorful collections, I was immediately blown away by the bright fuchsia and the sophisticated teal for a bold, captivating first impression.

And as I browsed through the collections, the delicate blossoms prints caught my eyes (it's cherry blossom season in Toronto after all) and this vignette filled with blues and purples is the perfect example of simple elegance.  I love how the structural elements of the table / bench and the teal landscape pillow offer a subtle hint of masculinity to balance the pretty floral.

I am also a big fan of pillows and have been addicted to trims for quite some time.  I believe pillows are the essential decorative accents that pull the overall look together.  The fact that you could give your room a completely different look simply by switching up your pillows making them my number one decorating allies.  These pillows with delightful trims in saturated colors as embellishment are certainly to die for.  I can't wait to get my fingers on a couple of them!

Summer is short in Toronto and with the long dreadful winter we had this year, our gardens most definitely need a boost of colors and flowers right now! Although it may still take some time for the spring blooms to be in full strength, these trays and tables definitely give our patios / balconies / decks an instant pick-me-up!

And then I saw this! Why only have some floral pillows when you could have it as your bed? What a dramatic statement and I am a fan! Here is where you can pick your favorite fabrics by meter.
