Monday I woke up to see snow on the ground. Tuesday I was newly ecstatic that it was only overcast and raining. Today it is just chilly. If your weather is being as uncooperative as what we’re experiencing in Ottawa, you might be craving spring with an overzealous enthusiasm. I can’t change the weather, but I can suggest a healthy dose of colour that will bring enough zest into your home that you just might forget about the dreariness.
Take a peak at the Vintage Chic and Dasy Frames from Fresh Home Elements (FHE Group):
If you haven’t heard of this company, you will, because their affordable, contemporary home accents (including some really clever ottomans) have won over major retailers like Home Outfitters, HBC, Costco, Winner’s, Homesense and Black’s Photography (to name a few). What I love is that Fresh Home Elements was founded by two Canadians in 2009, and now they sell their products worldwide! Dream big, Canadians, dream big.
The day it snowed, I was sent one of the hot pink Dasy frames to review (sold at Black’s Photography, $9.99-$14.99). I was so excited to incorporate the shot of hot pink into the townhouse, I immediately whipped up a bright little abstract using acrylic paint and heavy, pale pink cardstock paper (I pretty much just scribbled with paint and a tiny brush).
I think the vivid colour and cute texture contrast nicely with my crisp white walls, but imagine a grouping of the orange Dasy frames against grey walls (Gemma did a nice round up for inspiration). Or picture the bright yellow Vintage Chic frames with an earthy, neutral palette. Highlighter hues are so hot right now for home decor (as well as fashion), and these frames are a simple (and un-intimidating) way to get in on that trend.
PLUS check back the first week of June (shortly before my birthday), when I’ll be partnering with Fresh Home Elements for a giveaway! Hopefully it will be sunny by then, and you can pop a colourful beach shot into the frame you win. P.S. don’t forget to enter my current giveaway!
