10 Ways to Bring Summer Into Your Home

Spring weather is so unpredictable, I think it even snowed in the Canadian Prairies this past week, so maybe it’s a little early still to be out in the yard or balcony working this weekend for some of us, so why not start summer-izing inside?  It’s one of my favourite spring pastimes (seriously).  Brightening up a space with new colours and accessories for me is a complete pick-me-up after a long dark winter. Paint some stairs bright colors, add new cushions, move the bedroom downstairs or if you’re lucky onto the porch. What’s your favourite spring pick-me-up?

    please, please, please can someone tell me the shade/color name and manufacturer of that luscious lemon yellow???? It’ the exact shade I’ve been looking for for my kitchen.

    Some things should not be vintage. Vintage beds and metal bed frames- yuck! Very unless it’s there just for decor… but really? who has the space for that?
