Accessorising is Essential and Most Fun!

I recently attended the Canadian Gift & Tableware Association which is an event open to the trade only and is absolutely HUGE!  I was pleasantly surprised to see numerous suppliers with fantastic high end home decor accessories.  Pretty pieces are essential when putting together the final touches of a rooms' design, just like adding make up and jewellery to complete your perfect outfit. 

Calming spring accessories in soft spring hues from'Que'

With spring just around the corner (if you blinked you may of missed winter) many exhibitors displayed their newest collections for the season ahead.  There seemed to be no hard and fast rule in regards to colour with the exception that all featured colours worked beautifully with the now trendy Gray neutral.

More from 'Que' - Purple, green and Gray continues to be a popular colour combination

From soft pastels and muted purple tones to wild pops of colour - everything seems to be a go for 2012 depending on the look and mood you want to create for your space - inside and out.   

Red always seems to be in fashion, stirring up emotions of energy and passion

Torre & Tagus (above) specialises in clean, contemporary home décor and accessories from around the world.  Although it may seem early, it's a good time to start thinking about ideas you may have for your outdoor decor.  Once Valentines day has come and gone stores don't waste time turning their focus to spring.  Many shops already have spring home accents on display and like everything else, the best items go quickly.

 From Rustic to Rustique, I take a break from all the walking to rest in this contemporary white leather modern rocker with a chrome frame.  It was actually very comfortable to sit in...hmmm where could I find a space for this in my house? 

Animal prints and accessories were also very popular.  I'm sure like many of you, my family and I are nature lovers so I will have to dedicate a post soley to the influence of these nature inspired items in order to give them the full attention they deserve.  This upcoming season there is something for everyone, regardless of your preferred taste and that's great news because afterall, variety is the spice of life!
