In terms of creating a work life balance, we all set out with the best intentions. You plan to separate the two, leaving your work at the office and saving the home for family life. But as we all know too well, this isn’t always practical. Sometimes you may have some extra work that followed you home, or perhaps you’re blessed with work from home days! In these situations, the last thing you want to do is set up a temporary and uncomfortable work space in your dining room. You need an actual space where you can sit down, roll up your sleeves, and get that work out of the way. You need a home office! Here’s some inspiration to help you on your way to designing your very own dream home office.
Ah, the gallery wall! This home decor trend has really made a name for itself over the last few years, and for good reason. Gallery walls are the perfect excuse to put number of your favourite pieces of art together, rather than having to decide on one big piece for your wall. They’re a great way to show off your personality, and are essentially impossible to get wrong. Whether you choose a themed collection or a random one, if you’re looking to make a bold statement on a wall in your home we suggest trying this trend out.

Read on and see if we can change your mind!
The holidays are over and 2016 is in full swing! We don’t know about you, but we’re already sliding on the resolutions we set for ourselves. We’d much rather focus on bringing our resolutions into our living spaces, and making 2016 the year our homes become the best, most livable, and most beautiful they can be. Here are three ways we’re sweeping change into our spaces.
It’s official! The snow’s on the ground and there’s a chill in the air, which means it’s time to get out the holiday decor! It’s projected that this winter will be warmer and with less snow than the polar vortexes of years past, so there’s never been a better year to get festive outside. We’ve rounded up a few outdoor decor ideas we know will look amazing, whether you’re in a detached, semi or townhome. It’s time to celebrate!
Finding the perfect pieces for your home can sometimes be a challenge. You want something that’s functional, but you also want to express your own unique sense of style. Both the furniture and decor of your home help to infuse it with personality and add that finishing touch! We know that you’re already aware of all the big box stores around the GTA, but if you’re looking for something extra special for your home, take a short trip to one of Toronto’s design districts. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite spots that are entirely worth the trip.
