Urban Barn mini workshop & How to update your space

Recently I was invited to Urban Barn in Whitby to host a mini workshop on colour and how you can bring it to your space through the use of accessories and throw pillows. I must say I really enjoyed meeting all of the ladies and gentlemen who attended and I hope they found it informative!

With Fall now settled in and winter on its way, I always love adding warmth, coziness and colour to my space. Its that time of year when we spend more time indoors, we often host family functions and get togethers like thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.

You can easily update your space with some throw pillows and fun cozy accessories. I like to mix metals and add little unexpected touches here and there. As I've said before everything doesn't need to match but it should flow and have a consistent feel and style. Everything should work together and above all it should be filled with items, colours and textures you love! Winter is a great season to add in warm colours such as mustard yellow, deep reds like aubergine and warm brass accents. Also textures such as a nice hand knitted throw or even some faux fur done in the right way, adds a little something special.

I am loving Urban Barn's mustard accents right now and their grey plaid wool throws and they have the cutest fox toss cushions. They also have some great gold accents which you will see in some of the photos below. Don't be afraid to mix in a little gold or brass with your silver and nickel, its ok to do it and it adds some depth and personality!

If you would like some help updating your space for the upcoming winter and holiday season, we still have some space available for a couple of consultations but they are going quickly, so give us a call or an email to book yours!
