This Winter feels like a bad rash that just won’t go away! Get ready to put away your ulta-thick duvet and gear up for Spring. Here’s a few simple ways you can bring your home decor into Spring and Summer without freezing up your bank account (see what I did there?).
Put away those Blankets in Pretty Baskets
You dont have to stash away your blankets in the closet – you can keep them easily accessible for chilly nights by putting them into a cute basket which is not only functional, but can also add some style to an empty corner.
Emlyn Basket, Crate and Barrel, $139 CAD | Metal and Wood Basket, Zone Maison, $49 CAD | Basket with Handles, Ikea, $12.99 CAD (steal!) | Tassel Basket, Anthropologie, $78-$88 CAD
Bring Some Greenery In
It’s no secret that bringing fresh plants into the home helps clean the air and helps to bring the indoors into the home. If you dont have a greenthumb or a nursery nearby, there’s nothing wrong with adding some artificial plants into your home. Big, tropical foliage, Fig Trees and Terrarium Succulents are all beautiful and on trend for this Spring (plus they’ll last even if you decide to take off for a few weeks this Summer – lucky you!). See my post on making your own Artificial Succulent Box!

New Accent Pillows
If you’re itching to make a change, but don’t want to invest in any pricy items, a great way to bring color into your home or onto your patio is to buy some fun accent pillows. They’re (usually!) fairly inexpensive so you can change them out with the seasons and play with different color palettes.
Leaves Accent Pillow, Urban Barn, $39.00 CAD |Indigo Cross Cushion, Simons, $35 CAD| Jacob Pillow, LD Shoppe, $40 CAD Cherita Cotton Throw Pillow, Wayfair, $48.49 CAD
Get some new “Stemware”
You don’t have to use the same wine glasses or stemware year-round. If you do though, look for a nice shatterproof set that will do double duty – that can go from an afternoon on the patio into the house for dinner. Plus, if you have one too many margaritas on that first 20 degree day with your friends, you wont be left cleaning up a terrible mess if one happens to fall off the table! Look to get a fun, colorful set as well as a clear, classy set so you’re prepared for whatever the occasion.
Set of 4 Glacier Acrylic Wine Glasses, Stokes, $17.99 CAD | Cool Blue Shatterproof White Wine Glass, Bed Bath and Beyond, $5.99 USD | Set of 6 Plastic Highball Glasses, Wayfair, $74.99 | Set of 4 Shatterproof White Wine Glasses, William Sonoma, $39.95 USD
Bonus: I love the teal color of this set – would look great out on the patio with some of the fun pillows above! Pitcher & Glasses Set, Bed Bath & Beyond, $69.99 CAD
Now…bundle up, get to shopping, and count down the days until patio season – we’re almost there!
