Spring Colours and Textures

Just a few fun objects i’ve picked out that I feel represent some of the colours and textures of spring this year.

Camano Coffee Mill, Necklace by bella bijou, Wallet by Fossil, Bowls from Anthropologie, Hanging Terrarium by CB2, Feather Print by River Luna, Chair from Crate and Barrel


Tangerine and Green

Is anyone else super excited for Spring? I’m counting down the weeks until we spring forward and it’s actually still light out when I leave work in the evening. I’m mostly excited to stop wearing my black coat and switch things up for a bit of colour and a light cardigan.

You probably already know that orange/tangerine is the colour of the year, but i’ve decided that this pantone colour of the year thing is just one giant marketing scheme. I used to be really into it, but ever since pantone created their own retail (mugs, bags etc..) I lost interest, because it quickly became all about money. But don’t get me wrong, I do love a good pantone mug, even if they are way over priced.

Anyway, i’ve collected a few items that get me inspired for Spring, and yes there’s a bit of orange in there, because it’s bright, cheery and puts a smile on my face.

I took a stroll through Gastown this weekend and went to check out what was new at  old faithful shop. Their collection of handmade glass terrariums are beautiful.
