herringbone-pattern-contemporary-classic

Herringbone pattern is a classic pattern – and it’s really making a strong come back in all areas of home decor and interior design.

 

It is a favourite of ours ! we love working with classics but we also love pattern – so this really is the best of both worlds in our eyes!

 

What is the herringbone pattern?

The herringbone pattern is an arrangement of rectangles (or parallelograms) used for floor tiles, back splash tiles, hardwood flooring and road pavement, so named for a resemblance to the bones of a fish such as a herring.

The herringbone pattern adds an accent to a space – a kitchen or a bathroom can really have a designer look with an added detail like the herringbone pattern.

How can you add the herringbone pattern to your space?

Herringbone pattern adds a little extra detail to any space without going really over the top but you still have some options with size, colour, materials an placement.  One of the reasons we love the herringbone pattern is that it is a classic , so you don’t have to be concerned about it being too trendy and going out of style.

This marble mosaic herringbone tile from Wayfair is perfect for a kitchen backsplash, a detail in a bathroom or a fireplace surround. We love this pattern as a kitchen backsplash or accent in a bathroom in either skinny marble tile or a standard subway tile, it adds a little extra detail to the whole room.  We like to see it will a grout colour that is a few shades darker (or lighter) than the tile itself so you can actually see the pattern.

It’s also a great pattern on a floor, either in tile or hardwood, this pattern adds another visual element to the space and a designer look.

Not sure if you like the herringbone pattern?

Just try it in smaller doses like a small shower nook in a bathroom, a fireplace surround or in your furniture like a table top or an upholstered piece. Pillows or throw blankets in this pattern are also a subtle way to ‘test out’ this pattern in your space to see if you like it.  This slipper chair in the herringbone pattern available at Wayfair – adds an interesting detail in neutral tones, it would be great in a bedroom, a den or living room.  The pattern is clean and definitely not overpowering – this version of the classic pattern is a bit more contemporary, too!

Some more herringbone pattern inspiration…

Love the reclaimed wood detail in the herringbone tile in this mudroom space – the mix of texture from the wood and the pattern adds a great designer detail and a custom look.

 

Herringbone pattern adds another element to this fireplace – the colour palette is simple and clean but the addition of the pattern adds some depth.

 

Rooms that don’t often get a lot of decorative attention can really look incredible with some added detail like a laundry room.  We love the herringbone slate tile floor in this laundry room and paired with the other elements in the space like the subway tile and the shaker cabinets make this laundry room beautiful!

Carpet doesn’t have to be plain and boring…yes you can get carpet in a herringbone pattern and we love it! It looks amazing as an area rug but we love it as a stair runner, it has a menswear quality about it and it is so clean and sophisticated!

What do you think of this classic pattern?

white-shaker-style-kitchen-will-never

The white shaker style kitchen has been seen in kitchens for years! So is this style ever going out? It seems like very Pinterest board, very magazine and every home improvement show has the white shaker style kitchen.  So why is this style so popular?

The Shaker kitchen

Shaker style furniture is known for it’s simplicity and some may say ‘minimalist’ design.  The shaker design refers to the door style – it is a 5 piece door, with a recessed center.  The shaker style drawer could either be a flat panel (which we see in more modern style kitchens where detail is minimal) or you could see the 5 piece door in a drawer. 

This is an incredibly popular style because of it’s versatility but also it is so transitional depending on your handle choices for instance, you can make the cabinet suit any style of decor.

The White kitchen

Still the most popular choice for homeowners – they are clean, fresh and classic.  White works with all styles – you can easily add or incorporate elements of wood in flooring, counter tops or even some reclaimed wood accents.  You can mix your hardware style and finish.  Add glass cabinets and floating shelves, marble backsplash or subway…you can do so much with this colour of kitchen!

   The White Shaker Style Kitchen

This is the best of both worlds – the simple design in white.  It’s perfect!  You can adopt this white shaker style kitchen to just about any style by adding the hardware and accents like back splash, lighting, faucets and more….

 

Here are some of our favourite examples of amazing white shake style kitchens:

 

This white shake style kitchen is perfection – the mix of the apron sink with the goose neck faucet, the herringbone marble tile backsplash and the oversized stainless steel pulls – makes this white kitchen anything but boring!

 

 

 

This white shaker style kitchen has a bit of a classic meets vintage quality.  The mix of the pulls and knobs in the antique black finish gives some depth and contrast.  The subway tile in the staggered formation with the dark grout looks vintage (like something you would find in a bistro). The open wood shelving add a decorative touch and keep the kitchen from looking traditional and the marble counter tops add another classic element. 

 

 

Keep it traditional and add an antique touch to the clean lines of a shaker cabinet by adding some crystal knobs and pulls – this adds a great ‘bring’ factor, too! The white subway tile, the white quartz counter and the glass cabinets keep it classy in this all white kitchen.  The cabinetry style is the perfect back drop for all the more detailed elements!

 

 

Yes, brass is making a comeback – some of you are cringing….but it looks so fresh in the all white kitchen!  We love the mix of knobs and pulls – it’s a designer look and it really ups the look of the entire kitchen.  The brass adds great visual impact but also a warmth in this all white kitchen, as does the wood floor.  A simple kitchen cabinet can really stand out with great details.

 

So why do we think this white shake style kitchen will never be out?

Because classics are never out of style.  They may fade in popularity but they never fade away. 

So if you are considering a kitchen renovation don’t over look this classic and transitional style – it is perfect in every way,

fiddle-leaf-fig-tree

Have you noticed these Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees? They are everywhere! check out Instagram, Pinterest, Design magazines and home decor TV shows – this tree is trending!

So What is a Fiddle Leaf Fig?

This tree is known as a flowering tree in a tropical rain forest setting – but they have since been adopted as an indoor houseplant and that version doesn’t produce fruit (figs). As a house plant, these beauties do best in temperate climates. It’s called a ‘fiddle leaf’ because of it’s broad leaves that are shaped like a lyre or a fiddle.

How to care for your Fiddle Leaf fig tree?

Like all plants this variety needs watering but only water it once the soil is dry.  How often it needs water depends on the climate and surroundings. So keep checking your soil and water when dry.  The fiddle leaf fig needs light but not direct sunlight. Their broad leaves can get very dusty so yes, dust your plant with a soft cloth to keep it clean!

Why are fiddle leaf fig trees so popular right now?

There doesn’t seem to be a real reason for why this plant has grown in popularity recently.  These plants have been around for a long time but they are really emerging in home decor lately. Like other home decor trends we see these in flowers and plants, too.  I remember when Gerber Daisies were all the rage! This plant has a great sculptural presence, the green is very vibrant and it works well with the neutral, minimal and Scandinavian styles that are really popular right now.  It adds a great texture and visual elements and adds a wonderful contrast with the lighter tone walls e are seeing a lot of right now.

How and where to decorate with the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree?

This plant is a great space filler for a corner that needs a little something.  The beautiful shade of green and the oversized leaves add a visual interest to any room.  These look great in living rooms and bedrooms.  Try using a beautiful pot or contain to keep your fiddle leaf fig tree, these woven baskets look great but so do clean looking clay pots.  It dresses it up a bit more than plastic pot you find in the garden store.

Where can you purchase a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree?

You might be fortunate enough to have access to these lovely plants in a local nursery or home garden shop but we have also found some online options where they can be shipped directly to your home.

This is a great option from Amazon – it measures 3 – 3.5′ high and yes, it’s real!

 

Another great affordable option from Wayfair – a favourite home decor shopping destination – because they really do have everything!

This option is another economical choice, you have height options – and you can select your planter style too!

 

What do you think of this tropical and trending houseplant?

boys-bedroom-dinosaur-theme

I’m working on a dinosaur theme bedroom for my son.  I love to decorate kids’ bedrooms – it’s so much fun! The colours, the prints, the themes – it’s a great way to really get creative and adventurous plus show off their personality.

 

We have decorated a few kids’ bedrooms and recently a teenage girl’s bedroom – we love giving kid’s a space of their own and helping mom and dad get the look for less – and typically we are doing this ‘bedroom makeover’ as a Christmas or Birthday gift – what a great idea!

 

My youngest son, Lincoln, is turning 3 in about 4 months and I’m thinking it’s time for his room to become his own.  He will be transitioning out of his crib this summer and it’s probably a good time to makeover his room.  My son is obsessed with dinosaurs and typically I don’t dive head first into a theme but this strong love of dinosaurs has been going on for some time, so I think I have found my theme.

 

When I decorate kids rooms – for clients or my own children – I like to add themed accessories like small decor items, pillows, bed sheets etc…I also like to find items that aren’t too permanent so in a few years when he has a new ‘favourite’ I can make the change very easily.

 

Here are some of my favouite items for Lincoln’s bedroom:

 

I love this pillow – accessories like this are great and affordable finds and they are perfect for a bed or a rocking chair (which we happen to have in his room so I think this will be just perfect)

 

 

Art for kids rooms can be tricky to find but you can get creative with art that isn’t necessarily stretched canvas or framed – this hanging wire dinosaur from Pottery Barn Kids is so cute (and it’s on sale right now, too)

You can’t go wrong with extra storage and I’m a big fan of easy storage for kids.  Baskets and bins are great in bedrooms and playrooms for quick and easy clean up of toys and books.  I love these cute dinosaur storage bins!

When I decorated my 3 older children’s bedrooms I decided that themed sheets were a good choice! I kept their duvet covers simple (Pottery Barn rugby stripes for my boys’ shared bedroom and a Floral for my daughter-I like a duvet cover that can grow with them). But I like to have more fun with their sheets – like these cute and colourful dinosaur sheets!

 

 

Area rugs are a great way to add a splash of colour and pattern to any room – so this is why I love this area rug for my son’s bedroom.  I love the lime green colour with the blue and of course, the dinosaur – I know he will love it, too!

 

 

 

Night time can be a bit scary for kids, so I always have their bedrooms outfitted with a night lightThis dinosaur night light is adorable – the light is soft, you can choose the colour as a constant or changing (red, green, or blue) plus it is portable so at night if my little guy has to got use the potty he can use it as a flash light

 

 

 

To top off the dinosaur theme bedroom … a cute set of dinosaur pjs!

I’m so excited to transform his bedroom – just a few pieces will get the look and I won’t have to spend a lot!

wall-decor-baskets

Wall decor is a way to really pull the look of a room together.  I personally love art and I could not image a home (or a world) without it!  Wall decor is a way to not just pull a room together but it’s a great way to show off your style and taste.  One wall decor trend that I am loving right now – and we are staring to see if everywhere is the wall decor with baskets.

Let’s talk about this wall decor trend using baskets and woven bowls – we are seeing a lot of this in modern farmhouse but it can be used in other styles of home decor too.  It’s a great way to really bring something a bit different into your space without spending a lot time installing or money for purchasing. 

 

Not sure what I’m talking about?  Read further….

Wall Decor Baskets with Texture:

This is a great look for anyone looking to add some great texture to their space.  Baskets have that great natural texture.  Texture is such a great element to bring into a space.  I love to see a really clean and crisp wall with the basket wall decor – it’s really great contrast and so interesting!

 

Wall Decor Baskets with Contrast:

Just because you are decorating a wall with baskets doesn’t mean they all have to look the same. Look for baskets with some interesting pattern and colour to add even more interest to your wall decor. This image is a great example of a basket display wall with looks of texture and contrast – the black and white blended with the natural tones is a great look and against the deep grey wall paint, spectacular!

 

 

Wall Decor Baskets as wall filler:

Ever have those little corners in your home that need a little wall decor but you never seem to find the right piece or a standard art frame wouldn’t fit? This is another reason to give this basket wall decor a try – you can really make it your own in terms of colour, pattern, texture and how it is arranged.  This little wall space looks great with the baskets and bowls on display.

 

Wall Decor Baskets in Different Sizes:

This bedroom by Summer of Simplestylings.com did such an incredible job in her bedroom with this wall decor basket display.  I love the tones but I love the mix of the different size of baskets – it’s so interesting and you really notice the differences in each of these baskets.  This adds some great wall decor but the natural material of the baskets adds some real warmth to the space!

 

Wall Decor Baskets with Colour:

If you like this look but colour is more your speed you can absolutely add some pops of colour to your basket wall decor display.  I love the mix of these bright colours on the wall in this house.  It really stands out nicely against the white wall.

 

 

Wall Decor Baskets in Any Room:

A lot of the images that we have seen (and shown in this post) have the wall decor baskets on display in entry ways and hall ways but they really can be used in any room.  Try using these baskets and bowls on display as the main art feature in a room – you can really ‘customize’ the size by adding more baskets of all shapes and sizes!

Basket wall displays are a great way to add some great texture, colour, contrast and ‘custom’ art to your space – plus it’s easy and inexpensive DIY project for your home.  What do you think of this trend?

moody-blues-decorating-blue

Blue is a great colour to decorate with! There are so many shades of blue that you will definitely find one that suits your taste and style.  Blue is also a great classic colour so if you invest in some pieces you don’t have to worry that it wasn’t money well spent.

Blue is a great accent colour because it also works will all neutrals – white, cream, taupe, grey, brown you name it – it works! Blue is also a great colour to add to your exterior decor! In the spring and summer months, we see these beautiful blue tones in outdoor furniture and accessories, too!

Today’s focus is on the softer shades of blue – the aqua tones, robin’s egg, turquoise – to add a fresh spring / summer brightness to your space.  Adding some simple blue accessories to your space can transform your whole room without undertaking any huge renovation projects.

Here are just a few of our ‘moody blue’ picks:

Pillow Covers:

The pillow covers are perfect for spring and summer – the soft blue colour is light and airy and the nature motif is a great addition to a bedroom or living room.  These are pillow covers, so you can layer your ‘cooler’ weather pillows with these so you don’t need to find storage space for the ‘old’ pillows.

 

Table Lamp:

Lamps are a great way to add a pop of colour to a room.  We love turquoise and this lamp from Bungalow Rose  is perfect! We love the colour of the base and the shape, too – and the simple white drum shade gives the lamp a clean look and let’s that beautiful blue tone really stand out!

Wall Tile:

Something we are starting to see more of this year is interesting tile! We are seeing more colourful and patterned tiles in kitchens and bathrooms – either as a small accent (like a shower nook or just a small strip) or a full splash of vibrant colour (or pattern).  A blue tile paired with white or grey is a great look in a bathroom.  To make a statement you don’t have to use a lot.

Area Rug:

Area rugs are another favourite way to add visual interest in a room – we love what a patterned rug can do in a room and this stunning Blue and Ivory Rug from Bungalow Rose is a gorgeous addition to any space.  The colour and pattern are so light and fresh!

 

     Art:

Art really pulls a room together and it’s also an easy and affordable way to add something new to your space.  When it comes to art, don’t feel like you have to spend a lot of money on ‘one of a kind’ pieces – choose something you like! We love the colours in this art piece – the tones and fresh and soothing!

Accent furniture:

Smaller or accent furniture pieces like this armchair and another way to add some blue to your space without a major overhaul to your room.  We love the mix of the soft blue with the natural wood. The lines and size of this chair make it perfect for a smaller space or a corner.

 

Kitchen storage:

Don’t forget about the kitchen! The kitchen isn’t often a room that we think about adding decor to – but why not? There are so many cute, colourful and useful kitchen gadgets and items. We love this bread box, it has a bit of a retro feel and look especially in this colour.

 

Kitchen towels:

Add a pop of colour with your kitchen towels (aka tea towels, dish towels).  Just because something is useful doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty too!

 

We love this shade of blue – it’s a great hue for spring and summer accents in the home!

5-best-houseplants-grow-indoors

We are so thrilled to welcome our Guest Blogger – Marnie Bennett!

Houseplants are a great way to improve the look of any room in your home. They add a bit of nature to your indoor space and can make a room feel warm and inviting. There are also health benefits to incorporating plants into your house; they can remove toxins from the air and help protect you against allergens. If you’re a recent first-time home buyer or live in a condo in a busy Ottawa neighbourhood, you may not have the time or adequate space to grow an entire outdoor garden.

In this case, houseplants are a nice alternative. They allow you to satisfy your green thumb and still explore the benefits of home gardening without demanding all of your free time. These five plants are ideal for smaller spaces like apartments and condos where natural sunlight is often limited. They are hardy and difficult to kill which is perfect if you don’t have the time to care for a large outdoor garden or if you are new to home gardening and aren’t quite sure where to start.

  1. ZZ plant-

     

    The ZZ plant is a great choice if your new Ottawa condo doesn’t get a lot of sunlight. It can thrive in indirect light and only needs to be watered three times a month. It grows slowly so you don’t have to worry about it claiming a space for its own. It doesn’t attract pests which is a concern for a lot of first-time home buyers; after finally establishing yourself as a homeowner, the last thing you want is for pests to move in with you! The ZZ plant is stylish and exotic looking with beautiful glossy green leaves that will brighten up any room in your house.

  2. Snake Plant –

    The snake plant, also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, is a very popular plant for those who have the tendency to unwillingly neglect their indoor plants. These plants are extremely tolerant and forgiving. Snake plants do best in the sun, but they can also survive quite well in the shade. They need to be watered every two weeks and prefer under-watering to over-watering. Many people choose this plant for its sculptural appearance and long, green leaves. As an added bonus, the snake plant converts CO2 at night so it’s the ideal plant for a bedroom. It has other health benefits as well such as removing toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air.

  3. Pothos

    Many first-time homebuyers who quickly realize they have a less-than-green thumb opt for the pothos plant, also known as Devil’s Ivy. It is easy to care for and adds a warm, welcoming touch to any room. It is also adept at purifying the air from harmful toxins. It can thrive in low light and does well with a weekly watering. Pothos plants are ideal for hanging because they are a trailing vine that can grow up to six feet indoors. However, you can prune it to your desired length and shape if you prefer a smaller, more robust-looking plant. It adds a beautiful touch of lush greenery to your home and can be a great accent piece to your new Ottawa condo or house.

  4. Lucky Bamboo

    According to Feng Shui advocates, a lucky bamboo plant has the power to bring peace, strength, and luck into a home (a great combination for first-time home buyers!). It’s an inexpensive plant and very easy to care for. It prefers low light or shade and you simply have to change the water once every two weeks for it to survive. If you notice the leaves losing their vibrant green colour, it may be getting too much sunlight. It adds a modern look to your house and an element of architectural design. With all of these benefits plus the power to remove negative energy from your home, the lucky bamboo plant is the perfect choice to explore your interest in home gardening.

  5. Peace Lily

    If you want some flowers mixed in with your foliage, consider adding a peace lily plant to your home. This plant has long, dark leaves and elegant white flowers. Its compact size is a perfect fit for small spaces and it doesn’t require too much sun. If its leaves turn yellow, it’s best to move it farther away from the window. It also doesn’t need to be watered frequently and it will tell you when it needs re-hydration by bending its leaves downward. With its ability to purify the air, the peace lily plant is another great option for improving indoor air quality.

    With all of these great options, there’s no reason why you can’t cultivate a home garden in your new house. Even if you don’t have the space, time, or expertise to grow an outdoor garden, you can enjoy all of the benefits of adding greenery to your home with some hardy indoor plants.

    Have fun experimenting and enjoy your new indoor garden!

connect-dots-decorating-polka-dots

We love a Polka Dot print! Polka Dots are a fun print to decorate with – they add a touch of whimsy and a bit of a retro vibe to a space.

What’s the History of the Polka Dot?

The Polka Dot is a print that really became popular in the US in the mid 1920s.  America’s love affair with the polka dot began, perhaps, in 1926, when Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swimsuit. Shortly after, in 1928, Disney introduced its cartoon darling Minnie Mouse wearing a red polka dot dress and matching bow. Throughout the 1930s, polka dot dresses appeared in stores, the fabric suddenly subversive, nipped in by ribbons and accentuated with bows. In the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe was famously photographed in a polka dot bikini. And of course, the famous 1960’s hit song “Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Bikini“.

 

 

The Polka Dot pattern is a series of circles that are evenly spaced and of the same size.  A spot print isn’t necessarily consistent in spacing or size

The Polka Dot definitely has a retro feel but also a feminine one.  The Polka Dot has mostly been used in women’s fashion but it definitely makes a statement in home decor.

Ways to decorate with Polka Dots

A nursery –

we love the fun and whimsy that polka dots add to a bedroom.  We love this accent wall – it really adds visual interest to the room without using old colour and this can easily transition into a toddler room (and a little girl’s room and a teenagers bedroom)

 

Polka Dot Furniture

try re-upholstering a simple piece of furniture with a polka dot fabric – this will add a fun element into any room and it will turn a simple piece into a statement piece.  It’s a great addition to any room! This chair is an example of a spot print but isn’t it great?!

 

 

Polka Dot drapery and window treatments

we love a patterned window treatment – it adds a nice contrast to the room against a solid wall and it’s a perfect addition to a room that doesn’t have wall space for art!

 

 

Polka Dot Pillows –

A polka dot pillow is another great way to keep a room from looking too serious.  Polka dot prints comes in all colours – so you have a lot of options! We love different sizes and scales of polka dot prints,  too. Plus polka dots are fun to mix with other prints!

 

Polka Dots in the bedroom –

Polka dot bedding can be used in so many ways on a bed.  Just the pillows, bed sheets or the duvet cover.  Mixing the polka dots with solids and other prints makes any bedroom unique.  We love this bed set in white and gold with polka dots and stripes.

 

 

There are so many fun ways to decorate with this retro print – which is your favourite?

kitchen-design-trends-2017

The kitchen is the heart of the home and whether you are a gourmet or not, you want your kitchen to look stunning! If a kitchen renovation is on your to-do list, take note of the hot kitchen design trends for 2017.

Grey in the Kitchen:

Although white is still a top choice for home owners, grey is a close (very close 2nd).  We started seeing this trend about 3 years ago in the trade shows but now the grey kitchen cabinet is much more mainstream. If you are a bit hesitant, opt for a soft and warm grey tone for the kitchen cabinets. It’s still timeless and neutral but it’s a great alternative to white.

Farmhouse kitchen sink:

Also known as an apron sink.  This sink style has been around for a long time but it has really gained popularity with the whole revival of the ‘farmhouse look’ trend.  This style of sink comes in all sizes and configurations (single bowl, double bowl…) but it comes in other colours and materials.  Plus you don’t have to necessarily have the farmhouse look in your kitchen – you can have a clean contemporary style or an industrial style kitchen – it is a very transitional sink.

Tuxedo kitchen:

We are seeing a lot of tuxedo kitchens in 2017.  Not familiar with this term? A tuxedo kitchen is a kitchen with dark lower cabinets and kitchen island cabinets (in a black like a tuxedo but we are seeing lots of variations like navy, dark stained wood and charcoal grey) and white upper cabinets.  This adds some visual interest to a kitchen and in our opinion looks best in larger kitchens. 

Bold Kitchen Light Fixtures:

Statement lighting is everywhere and we mean in every room in the house and the kitchen is no exception.  We are seeing lots of larger and more interesting light fixtures in the kitchen – over the island, the eat-in area and in the kitchen itself.  There are so many styles of lighting – so there is something for everyone! Get creative with colour, size and shape – we love this classic lantern pendant in pink and gold – so unique!

 

Mixing kitchen counter tops:

We are seeing clients get more and more adventurous when it comes to making selections in the kitchen.  It can be tough to narrow down your selections – so don’t! Opt to have 2 different counter tops in your kitchen – 2 different stones, a stone one and concrete one, a stone and wood one….the combinations are endless.  This is a great way to really make your personality shine in your kitchen!

 

Navy in the kitchen:

Navy in the kitchen right now is where grey was about 3-4 years ago – just emerging – but we are seeing it more and more in magazines and TV shows, so it is only a matter of time until the navy kitchen is the new grey kitchen! We love it mixed with brass or gold hardware (which is also starting to catch on).  A navy kitchen looks incredible with just a simple shaker style door – because the colour is so deep and rich you really don’t need a lot of detail. 

Interesting Kitchen Back splash:

For a while it was all about the glass tile mosaic back splash and then more recently the subway tile but now we are seeing all different shapes and colours – even patterned tiles! We are definitely seeing people take more ‘risks’ this year when it comes to tile.  Whether it is a herringbone layout, a hexagon shape or a pattern tile – back splashes are a lot more interesting this year! (We are seeing this trend in bathrooms, too)

 

What do you think of these kitchen design trends ?

friday-favourite-bungalow-rose

Bungalow Rose is a brand that we have recently stumbled upon. We are always looking at furniture, art, accessories, paint and more – on the hunt for new pieces, products, colour combos and even brands for our decorating clients.  Recently through 2 of our clients we stumbled upon this amazing collection that has this incredible global meets vintage energy. 

Bungalow Rose is all about getting that ‘well-traveled’ look. Mixing bohemian chic with global influence. We love their mix of tribal prints, Eastern influences and Old-World charm. Their combination of prints and colours adds a truly unique look to any space.

 

If you love that global look – this is a line for you.  We have broken down some of our favourite pieces all available through Wayfair –

Bungalow Rose Favourites:

 

Rug-

Let’s start with this amazing blue and ivory rug with a vintage finish – it’s so fresh and perfect for spring and summer home decor.

Bungalow Rose Hand-Tufted Ivory/Blue Area Rug

 

Sideboard-

This amazing wood sideboard in natural stain with a chevron pattern is so simple but so chic! This actually could work in a home with a Scandinavian home decor style.

Bungalow Rose Ehret Sideboard

 

Pouf-

We are big fans of poufs! Whether it’s for extra seating or for a foot stool – they just add another shape, another texture and another height in the room.  We love these Moroccan influenced poufs in leather with embroidery detail.  We love this grey one !

Accent Pillow –

Accent pillows are a great way to add some colour and visual interest – Bungalow Rose has so many amazing pillows – We could have spent days looking through just pillows! I’m loving the freshness of the blue and white with the coral hue!

Table lamp

We love what an interesting lamp can do for a room.  Lighting can really add to the decor style of your room – so don’t just take anything.  This turquoise lamp is incredible – the shape and the colour are just stunning and they wok with the boho vibe!

Art –

This art piece is incredible – again it has the global look but in neutral and metallic tones – the pattern is very detailed but not overwhelming.  This could be added to any space that’s looking for something interesting but not over the top!

Bungalow Rose Clear My Mind Framed Graphic Art

 

Decor Accessories –

Vases are a must have accessory! On a console, by a fireplace or sideboard – the colours, textures and varying heights – vases are a great decor item – be sure to group them in odd numbers!

These are just a few of our favourite pieces from Bungalow Rose – but if you love that global look with fabulous colours and prints (even for just a touch here and there) be sure to go to Wayfair and take a look for yourself – there is something for everyone!
