I visited the HomeSense showroom a few weeks ago to have a little sneak peek of what is to come in spring/summer 2013 and let me tell you, the truly amazing collection is an absolute stunner!! From bold, vibrant primary colors to soft, serene pastel hues, the visual team has put together five fabulous looks to inspire a little re-decorating at our home.
Look #1 is all about bold colors and how to pair them to create a dynamic space. From standout luxurious rugs, delightful side tables with a moroccan flair, to stylish and super comfortable sofas, each piece deserves to be the star of the show, and together they have made one sizzling hot blockbuster! Don't believe me? Check out the attention to detail and high style inspired by top interior designers.
My personal favourite from this collection is definitely this pair of graphic pillows with a slight retro vibe. A little houndstooth, a little groovy chevron, and all done in soft pastels, how can I resist such fun filled creations?
Look #2 is all about soft colors, feminine decorative details, and more is definitely more. From the rosy hue on the bedding, the romantic striped euro sham with ruffle, to light and breezy sheer drapery panels with embroidery details, this sumptuous bedroom vignette has immediately transported me to a cozy retreat in Tuscany, ready for my summer romance.
The creamy mosaic mirror with super chic black accent, the crisp white bench at the foot of the bed, and the beautifully styled bookcases with pastel accessories, what is not to love in this collection?
Summer BBQ with friends and family is one of my favourite summer activities, and HomeSense is determined to make it a truly memorable experience. More than just your go-to source for furnishings, HomeSense also carries a wide selection of chef worthy products including gourmet ketchups, sparkling lemonade from France, and delicious sea food soups straight from the harbour. Of course I am banana crazy about this rope pendant, and I am sure Chris is in love with this stainless steel cooking central + solid counter.
I usually shy away from using red on the walls, but this delicious tomato red grass cloth has rocked my world. It is the perfect hue of red to up our appetites; an energize backdrop to showcase the cheerful art collection, and a gorgeous partner to the indoor/outdoor bar in espresso. I must say I love, love, LOVE this wire pendant in brass for its contemporary spin of a traditional design.
Pool party is at the top of everyone's must-do list during those hot, sticky, humid days in the summer. Whether you are looking for quiet sun bathing for two, an intimate dinner for four, or a friend-filled party in the backyard, HomeSense has got you covered via high style furnishings, sun/water proof decorative pillows, good quality beach towels, and check out this impactful feature wall decorated with plates!
No room is completed without artwork and for this spring/summer season, HomeSense will turn that blank white wall at our homes into an instant gallery. Classic and sophisticated, here is a small sample of what you can expect to see at your local HomeSense this season. These professionally framed sailboat prints reminds me of the luxurious Ralph Lauren Home showroom in ABC carpet, and I am now officially obsessed with this white coral, charcoal grey linen, + natural wood shadow box madness. I WANT IT!
Thanks HomeSense for bringing us such incredible products from around the world! Spring is just around the corner, and perhaps it is time to say hello to a refreshingly new look to our homes. Just as this little fella, I am ready to shop til I drop. Are you?
