Pantone Radiant Orchid – Part 1

Every year Pantone comes out with the colour of the year. Emerald is out and Radiant Orchid is in!! I am not the biggest fan of purple but this colour is starting to grow on me. For interiors I think this colour would be perfect as an accent colour with whites and greys. If you are feeling bold though you could paint a room this colour.

Here are some great interior spaces that I think have successfully used Radiant Orchid.

H&M Home

If you don’t already know H&M has their own H&M Home division in Europe. It is similar to their H&M fashion collections, with their prices being low. It was announced back in August that the H&M home collections will be available on US online stores! Unfortunately this isn’t including Canada, but in Vancouver we live close enough to the US we could just order it and have it sent to the border and pick it up! They have everything from duvets, pillows, vases and kitchen accessories. Hopefully some time in the future us Canadians will be able to order online as well! Or even better if eventually they opened H&M Home stores, imagine going to H&M and being able to shop for a new outfit and new accessories for your home, it sounds like a dangerous combination for my wallet! I did some online browsing on the H&M Home  website and put together a little inspiration board of some of my favourite products they carry to give you an idea of what they have. You can always check it out yourself at H&M Home!

Scandinavian Design

Happy September! I can’t believe that summer is just about over, the only good thing about this is that I graduate at the end of the month! Which means September will be a VERY busy month for me. I recently came home the other day from two of my best friends wedding and I am ready to buckle down and start busting my ass to finish! But first I will write a quick post about my love for Scandinavian design.

What I love about Scandinavian design is the neutral hues, comfy and interesting textures and fabrics, clean lines and warm features. It is functional, minimal and simplistic. When I finally get my own place I can picture this style being a big part of my home. Here are some great inspirational pictures of some Scandinavian interiors!
