Hello Wednesday! It maybe cloudy or even rainy out today but it doesn't dampen my spirit after days of sunshine and a forecast of above 25C for days to come. We all know that the May long weekend means: spring gardening, opening up the cottage, and more importantly, it is time to shop for fresh home accents to welcome the summer months to come.
Today I am taking you to HomeSense and sharing some of my favorite picks from its spring / summer 2016 collection!
Bold, vibrant, and textile, who doesn't want a tropical paradise right at home?
This richly patterned collection is filled with pops of bright colors. The embroidery motif on pillows (who doesn't love pineapple?), the tassel details on the curtains, and the tightly woven tribal inspired table linens give this collection a handcrafted, global traveller appeal.
These colors just put a smile on my face. What do you think?
A classic nautical aesthetic is always in style and for this summer, HomeSense inspires us with its seaside, breezy beachy collection.
Stripe, polka dot, ikat, tie-dye, marbleize, the timeless blue and white palette truly stands the test of time and really, don't you want it all? Accented with natural wood and fresh greenery, this serene corner is my next best alternative to an immediate getaway to Santorini!
Just like chairs, I am also addicted to side tables. The buyers at HomeSense have outdone themselves this season with so many incredible pieces at amazing prices.
Quartz, agate, marble, the choice is yours! I am obsessed with the trio of puzzle-like marble side tables. Not sure where to put them but they are very Kelly Wearstler, and for $100 a piece, this trio is too good to pass up.
Turning our attention to outdoor living, for those who live with less than 100 square feet of outdoor space, this sexy and graphic 3-piece set scores A+ for both style and scale. Can't keep our plants alive (speaking from experience here)? These faux fiddle leaf fig trees are so real looking and they will never lose a leaf!
Lighting and music are two key elements to any summer party and these cool outdoor light and wireless speaker (they change colors too) with a sleek silhouette had me at hello! Looking to create your own container garden? I am crazy about this garden tool set and a super chic porcelain white planter with a sophisticated brass base on the bottom right.
For those who have a little more space, how fashionable is this grey and white houndstooth set? Your neighbors will be jealous!
So is your home ready for summer? I would love to hear what strikes your fancy this summer!
