A Living Room Refresh

by - Thursday, January 14, 2016

Even though it feels like winter has barely just arrived (we've only shovelled the driveway twice!), I'm already thinking ahead to spring. I can't help it. The new bright white hallway really got things rolling and now my mind is filled with ideas on how to refresh this old house of ours. The kitchen needs a repaint. The guest bedroom is in need of a total makeover. And the living room... it is badly in need of an uplift!

I'm taking inspiration from this gorgeous guest house above, by Tillman Long Interiors. The colours feel like spring to me... soft teal, yellow, cream. We have similar colours in our living room, but our room feels so much heavier. I blame the brown sofa. And the brown carpet. And the brown coffee table. Something has to change.

Our living room circa 2012. It hasn't changed much.
Luckily, there's a new source for Canadians for home goods. Have you heard - Wayfair has launched in Canada!

I've been a huge fan of Wayfair for a long time and now I can shop with ease. I love that prices are shown in Canadian dollars with duties already included, plus shipping is free for purchases over $75. That is a big thing for us Canadians - duties on goods shipped from another country are always a big unknown. I've been dinged with everything from $35 duties on a 6x9 rug (not bad!) to $80 on stationery (ouch!). With the Canadian dollar at an all time low against the US$, having this local online option couldn't have come at a better time.

Wayfair Canada reached out recently asking me to help spread the word and I couldn't be more excited. I've been browsing their site daily and have found a few items that can help brighten my mood and the living room during these still dreary winter months:

There is so much product available on the site. I'm eager to show you what I ended up picking out. A few new items, plus 'shopping my house' and moving accessories from one room to the other has the living room feeling like new.


Disclosure: Product has been provided by Wayfair Canada for this project but opinions (and countless hours spent on the Wayfair site) are truly my own. Thank you for supporting those who make this blog possible.
