Today I'd like to share some colours and textures that have been inspiring me lately. With these photo pairs, I try and find at least 2 elements that are similar in each photo. It can be a repetition of colour, texture, composition or maybe all 3! Which one is your favourite? - Amy.
A few months back, Aura, an Australian line of homewares, contacted me about bringing attention to their product in Canada. I took a quick look at their site and immediately fell in love. Not only was the product beautifully designed but the styling was spot-on. Designed by Tracie Ellis, the line has been around since 2000 but it only recently hit Canadian stores (it's available at the Hudson's Bay and Simon's). The products are bold, colourful and perfectly coordinated so you can mix and match styles to create your bespoke table or bed.
