Add A Little Pastel Into Your Life

If you think you are seeing 50s and 60s nostalgia resurfacing in the form of avocado stoves and colour-faded décor – you’d be right!

Just in time for Spring, this pastel décor trend is making a big comeback into homes, and not just in time for Easter.

It is always a sure sign that Spring is on its way when you start seeing soft hues of cropped pants bouncing down the street, so now it’s time to add those same chalking shades into your home for a little much-needed breath of fresh air (especially after this never-ending winter we’ve been having).

Come on don’t be shy and definitely don’t be afraid of colour – Spring-ify your home just as you would your wardrobe. Tons of designers are bringing back this vintage & whimsical, pale pastel-inspiration – just see for yourself.

But, maybe do it in a way that won’t have you re-thinking that massive pink fridge purchase. The trick is to be smart about where you add colour.

Re-painted and aged furniture and strategically placed accessories would be my picks. This allows you to add some Springtime colour to a room without the massive price tag of purchasing a large piece of furniture you may eventually (sooner than later) want to change up due to some major pastel overkill.

I'm Lisa, a real born and bred Torontonian in every sense of the word. I'm a PR practitioner by day with a fabulous client list, at a very cool boutique firm in the core with a view of the city that can make anyone want to move here. I have a mild to moderate hat obsession, and you’ll usually find me searching the city for the next big chef, and rarely without a fashion or décor magazine in my purse. Before PR, I was a travel writer/editor/photographer, and spent most of my time travelling the world and bringing my stories back here. The rest of the time I spent indulging in the city's untapped culinary scene as Post City Magazine's main restaurant photographer. But, no matter where I am in the world, nothing beats coming home. That's why I've spent the last few years planting my roots here, moving from Toronto’s uber-chic west side to the heart of Greek Town in a modern Victorian semi (a.ka. my lifelong décor project), with my husband and super-stylish son. Yes, I'm one of those moms, the one who won't give up her sense of style post-baby bump; and why should I?! I aspire to have my cake and eat it too - I am Italian after all. And, now why my 2-year-old in tow, I can bring him along for the ride.
