Upcoming Spring Colors - Trends to introduce to your home



Every year in the Spring, the color palette changes. Trends come and go based around these colors, and we tend to shift our home decor, furniture, and overall design themes as a result. It’s incredible, the amount of influence something as simple as a color palette can have, but it also makes a huge statement as to what we find appealing at any given time.

This year, of course, is no different. Pantone has been the standard for upcoming color trends for years. They release a ‘color of the year’ that defines trends for 365 days at a time. But, they also release color palette predictions based on seasons.



For the upcoming Spring season, it's all about getting back to the natural beauty that surrounds us in different ways. Spring is a time for vibrancy, and appreciating nature. Pantone's upcoming Spring colors absolutely reflect those moods. They're taking a page from Mother Nature's book with colors like Pale Dogwood, Greenery, and Niagara. More subdued and familiar tones like Kale, Hazelnut, and Lapis Blue also make the cut, blending the natural coloring surrounding us with comfortable items we're familiar with.



What better time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world than in a blooming, flourishing Spring? Niagara will lead the color palette as the 'it' color for the season. It's denim-like blue reflects an idea of relaxation, comfort, and familiarity. All of the great colors that make the 'top ten' list  for the season are designed to do exactly the same. So, as you take a look around you this Spring, and try to decide which color palette to focus on for your home. Take a page from Pantone's book, to select on trend poufspicture framesrugsthrows and other decorative pieces that reflect these color palettes. Not only will you be on trend, but nature's color palette will find its way into your home!

Here are some suggestions to make your bookcase multifunctional and stylish at the same time:

Bedroom Furniture - Make Your Bedroom A Sanctuary


As a whole, most of us tend to focus our decorative ideas on things like living rooms, dens, basements, dining rooms, etc. While these are all important, and should reflect your personality and style, it’s easy to ignore the bedroom. We don’t often consider our bedrooms to be much more than a place to sleep, lounge, etc. But those two actions alone should make you want to turn your bedroom into the ultimate escape of relaxation and comfort. Thankfully, something as simple as your bedroom furniture can do just that. 



Start out by listing off a few things that first come to your mind when you think about a personal sanctuary. This will be different for everyone - after all, your bedroom should be a reflection of you, not someone else. Start with the wall color, the decor, and then move onto bigger items like the beddressers, side tables, etc. 



The focal point of every bedroom is, of course, the bed. It’s okay to make your bed an investment, and make it absolutely abundant. If it’s going to be the main focus of the room, it should be something luxurious. 


Your furniture is truly the foundation of your bedroom. Once you have the details in place for the overall theme, and you have the bed you want, your furniture should accent it. Again, bedroom furniture should be an investment. With so many options, grains, woods, and colors to choose from, it’s an investment that can be incredibly personal. The bottom line? Don’t be afraid to ‘go big’ when it comes to your bedroom. You may spend most of your time just lounging around there, but making it feel like a special occasion each time you get into bed can make a world of difference, and add a lot of value to that room of your home.

The Best Dining Room Furniture Set For Your Holiday Gathering



The Best Dining Room Furniture Set for Your Holiday Gathering

We don’t often think about the furniture in our dining room until it’s absolutely necessary to do so. The furniture is typically comfortable enough for us to enjoy a quick breakfast, or a dinner with the family. But, when it comes to hosting guests, it’s easy to second guess yourself, and your furniture. Thankfully, there are a few tips you can keep in mind. Whether you’re in the market for a new dining set, or you want to spruce up your own, take into account both timeless classics, and recent trends. 

Traditions Never Fade

The holidays are all about family, warmth, and comfort. One way to provide that with dining room furniture is by focusing on something more traditional, vintage, rustic, etc. If you have an old dining set already, you might actually benefit from ‘roughing it up’ a bit more. The distressed look is not only in style right now, but it never goes out of style. Capitalize on a comforting dining set you already have by giving it a more rustic look. There are plenty of online tutorials and step-by-step guides that can help you give your furniture a welcoming farmhouse appeal. 


Modern Comfort

People also tend to think about class and sophistication at the holidays. If you’re in the market for new dining room furniture, don’t be afraid to make a bold statement. Rich, warm colors will never go out of style. Oversized tables and chairs will make every meal feel like a special occasion. Clean, smooth lines will make the dining set comfortable enough to use all year long, even for a simple, casual meal. 

Whatever you decide, know that dining room furniture should reflect your space and personality all the time. How you decorate and accent it for the holidays is also completely a personal choice. So, choose your modern flare, or timeless traditional look, and your friends and family will love it.

How To Add Decorative Accents To Your Living Room?

By Home Style Furniture



There is a list of a few questions you must ask yourself when looking to add decorative accents to your living room. Don’t worry, no need to ask a designer to do it. Here are 5 simple questions you might ask yourself before adding decorations to your living room:
  1. Which color scheme are you using in your living room?
  2. What kind of ambiance do you want to make?
  3. Is there a common theme in your living room (florals, vintage, monochrome)? Do you want to keep this theme or change it?
  4. Where do you want to add decorations?
  5. Why do you want to add decorations?


Based on these questions, you should be able to make a good choice. 



Now, little tips and advice to help you make a better choice:
  • First of all, if you have kids, it is not recommended to choose fragile decorations like a glass vase or pottery for places they can reach. Adding some decorative candles and/or printed pillows can be a good alternative.
  • Make sure that you find the same color at least in 3 items and not more than 5 colors (different tones don’t count as a different color if they are similar). Too many different colors in the same room make it hard to match them.
  • Don’t be afraid to use textures and patterns, but not more than 3 (you don’t want your living room decor to be inconsistent). Choosing a theme helps to choose the textures and patterns.
  • Keep in mind the size of the room while you’re shopping; too much decoration rarely gives good results and make the small rooms seem smaller.
  • Adding decorative pillows can make all the difference, you might try this before adding anything else.

All You Should Know About Memory Foam Mattress

By Home Style Furniture



Does your body ache every morning? Are you restless and sleepless? A memory foam mattress can help remedy these problems and make the day feel better. Lucky for you, the memory foam invented by NASA 50 years ago to protect astronauts is now used in mattresses. When you lie on a memory foam mattress, its soft foam adjusts to every part of your body from head to foot. The temperature-sensitive material distributes body weight evenly and reduces pain. If you suffer with back, neck, hip and joint pain, mattress brands like Ashley-Sleep®, Tempur-Pedic® and other premium brands are perfect for you. They adapt to your body so you can rest easy in personalized comfort. Add an adjustable base and with the touch of a button, you’ll discover that perfect ergonomic position. In addition to pain relief, there are five more great health benefits of memory foam mattresses.


HELPS EASE SLEEP APNEA
When a memory foam mattress and pillow are used together, your head will be properly elevated. This helps clear the path to easier breathing because your airways are no longer obstructed.


HELPS ALLERGY SUFFERERS
There’s nothing to sneeze at with memory foam. Since these mattresses are made of polyurethane foam, the interior of your mattress will always be free of allergy-causing dust mites. By eliminating one of the major allergens, these mattresses can also help control asthma. 



IMPROVES METABOLISM
If your partner constantly tosses and turns, you’ll never know it with a memory foam mattress. The foam isolates all motion and you’ll enjoy uninterrupted sleep. This will positively impact your metabolism, which may in turn help you lose weight, deal with daily stress and improve your overall health.


PROVIDES PROPER SPINAL ALIGNMENT
Contouring support provided by a memory foam mattress keeps the back aligned and delivers pressure-relieving comfort while you sleep. This helps with preventing back pain and future spinal problems. As time goes on, these mattresses are less likely to sag and lose shape, so your back will not suffer.

Remembrance Day




Tomorrow is Remembrance Day! Although, it is not a countrywide statutory holiday ; we will all take some time to remember men and women who have served, and continue to serve their country during times of war, conflict and peace.


Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held at cenotaphs or Museums throughout Canada.  Hosted by officials, veterans or military forces depending on the place, the community will participate in demonstrating their remembrance to their country heroes! Parades, chorales followed by receptions will be on the program for some cities. Some shops will even “commemorate” with some great deals.


What will you do at the 11th hour of on the 11th day of the 11th month to remember them? 
Why not start simply! Wear a poppy and salute our Canadian military!
