In past articles we’ve talked about the big picture when it
comes to designing a room, a house, an outdoor scape. Form and function, organization, collecting
and editing, staging and fluffing for re-sale, remodelling or renovating, extending
to the outdoors, and decorating versus design.
While i am a strong proponent of an individual approach to
each home, space, or person, there are some universal truths when it comes to
decorating your home. The importance of
details cannot be overlooked in a well-thought-out and finished home.
Presumably, as you read this, summer has already arrived,
and you are outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Summer in Canada, is a short and
much-anticipated season (particularly this year!), and when it finally arrives,
we need to make the most of it.
Not just going to the beach/cottage/trailer or whatever your
escape might be on the weekends, but everyday, doing our best to bring the
outside in, and spending our days outside as much as possible. Consider running twinkle lights along fences,
railings, or around windows, to extend your outside time into the evenings.
