So June has arrived and finally, yes finally, the warm weather! Everything is in full bloom and the great outdoors await! You can tell people want to get out, they want to breathe the fresh air, they want NEW! New garden accessories, new throw pillows, new bedding, everything new! June is usually when we are busiest designing and decorating homes. People want fresh starts and starting at home is always a good idea. From simple jobs like finding the perfect paint colour to just changing around the layout in a room to complete overhauls! We are taking out the old and in with the new!!
I have learned quite bit about people in the last few years. Often times we want different or at least we think we do, sometimes its just a matter of seeing things through different eyes!
I try to do this with my clients, offering different ways of reusing some decorative items they already have . This saves the budget and sometimes sanity! Don’t get me wrong, I love a clean slate but a clean slate isn’t always the practical way to go about things. Clients seem grateful and frankly I get satisfaction working this way. There is always room to add a few NEW finds to the collections they have and my shop is bursting with those unique finds!
Enough about the inside , lets talk GARDEN!! Entertaining and decorating, seeing what we can add to make the most of our short, very precious summer days!! We have some incredible pieces this summer. Everything from rusty or as I prefer to say , petina, garden ornaments, oversized flowers, garden creatures etc. One of my favourite things that I found this summer is this recycled tire horse!
How gorgeous this horse would be attached to a willow or maple? Its huge! Can hold an adult up to 400lbs. I have encouraged everyone who has purchased this to take a picture of it hung from their tree!
I have snuck in the picture of the antique coca cola coolers. Its functional and would look great filled with ice and refreshments. On the flip side, why not use it as an herb garden, filled with rosemary?
So, on that note, I wish you a beautiful, glorious JUNE!!!
