Spring is upon us and it's time to update your decor and start planning some fun get-togethers. This season it's all about keeping it fresh. I did a segment for Telus TV recently for PC Home on how to freshen up your decor for spring and on a budget of $250.00. It doesn't really take a whole lot to make a space come to life. A little design savvy and help from PC Home products can make all of us Frugal Designistas!!!!
We took a plain old spare room and gave it some new life with some fresh new sheets from PC Home. The great thing here is that they are luxury sheets, high thread count and feel extremely soft. We also kept the duvet cover and shams pretty neutral going with a chic hotel inspiration with a robins egg blue detail, punching up the look with a white and brown toile accent. The side tables were perked up with a foliage print in a simple white frame, a modern lamp and of course, fresh flowers. A perfect welcome for any guest.
It's all about casual entertaining for spring. Forget fussy sit down dinners where you are forced to be in the kitchen for most of the night. Instead think of setting up your table buffet style where people can serve themselves.
I created a perfect sunday brunch set up. Starting of with a simple white table cloth, a must for any good host/hostess. I then saw a floor mat that had a gorgeous stripe done in subtle greens and used that as my starting point. Oh yes, a floor mat on the table. There are some fabulous bamboo pieces at PC Home such as the cutlery tray and lacquered oval tray that I used to add an organic touch to the table. We also mixed up fresh flowers with the artificial lemon trees to add some interest and the gorgeous lattice pattern on the napkins keeps with our fresh garden theme. The dishes were kept simple, white and square, and at $2.99 each, a steal of a deal! There is not excuse for plastic anymore!
