Welcoming in the first signs of Spring!

Spring is a time for renewal. It is the perfect time to let go of the old and make room for the new. After the dreary winter, it’s nice to refresh our living space with some fresh accessories to give our space new life.

I took a stroll in the Glebe the other day looking for some spring inspiration and I was not disappointed!

Bring a little spring indoors with plants, unique planters and garden stools. I spotted these pretty daffodils at Bloomfields. These garden stools are from Anthropologie and would work well indoors and can be taken outdoors as the weather warms up.

It is easy to incorporate bright spring patterns, even in small doses. How gorgeous is this area rug from Lolio’s new Wild Bloom Collection!? It adds a pop of colour and happiness into this space.

Check out JD Adams for some pops of colour and great kitchen and garden accessories. Can you spot the cute little bunnies?

Adding a fresh, fun outdoor mat will add character and brighten up your entry. I love these little gems spotted at the Glebe Emporium.

It may be a bit too soon to bring out patio furniture, but it is never too early to shop for new throw pillows or replacement seat cushions for existing furniture. I picked up these fun and oh so soft Moroccan inspired throw pillows at Pier One and I can’t wait to display them on my outdoor Charleston swing.

Outdoor fabrics have come a long way in recent years with some fabrics even being nice enough to use indoors. Changing your throw pillows every year or two is a great and inexpensive way to freshen up your patio. If you are looking for more of a statement, now is the perfect time to buy new furniture as well as many stores have seasonal sales.

Even my furry friend Herschel enjoyed a doggy popsicle from Purrdy Paws during our jaunt around the Glebe!

We are all ready for spring – bring on the warmer sunny days!

Until next time - Michelle
