Holiday Gift Guide - Part 2

Yesterday, I posted the first part of our Holiday Gift Guide featuring the work of local designers in the Toronto area (many of them also have online stores for those of your further afield.) We've got more shopping ideas for you today featuring a beautiful tablescape you might just want to copy for your own holiday table. I love the loose arrangement of juniper in the centre of the table accompanied by smaller sprigs at every plate. Thanks to the very talented Amy and Andreea for creating such a inspiring tableau.

My last post was all about green and today I’m dreaming about it’s complementary colour, red. But a very deep red to be exact–  you might also call it bordeaux or oxblood. This is a colour that I’ve never worked with before but I’m definitely up for the challenge! I’ll be styling a space that includes a deep red wall so I have been searching far and wide for some inspiration. I’ve pulled together some of my favourite images below. - Amy.

Inspired by Green

Since I don’t get much sun in my home, I tend to gravitate towards lighter colours but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had the urge to go dark. There’s something about hunter green that makes everything come alive. Whether it’s paired with white, wood, gold or black – I’m loving it’s versatility. I would love to know your thoughts on this colour in the comments below! - Amy
