Pillows Are Not Just For Fighting

If you’re like me, you’re probably beyond done with this weather. I’ve never been more excited for spring, especially the idea of bringing out my spring/summer wardrobe.

Just like we change up our closets, packing up our chunky wool sweaters and filling them back up with bright prints and flowing maxis, it’s much the same way with home accessories.

But, let’s face it completely overhauling your space seasonally isn’t always realistic or affordable. Plus, who wants to swap out their grey wool sofa for a teal or tangerine version and then have to change it again in a few months? Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of bright, bold statement furniture, but for those like me who change their minds as often as I do that’s huge dedication to a piece that I’m not ready to make.

That’s why I love throw pillows. They’re a great way to incorporate seasonal colours and trends into a space and refresh it, without the commitment and price tag.

Here are a few fun prints and colour options that I know will get you thinking of spring and forgetting about your gloomy winter blahs.

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.
