Spring… The season that leads into the season I’ve been longing for… Summer. The nice weather won’t last forever and will disappear before it seems like it even began (happens to me every Summer!) But filling my home with key pieces from the Spring 2014 Collection will help me to remember my favorite season year round.
Spring has officially sprung and I wanted to share my top picks.
The Rendezvous Candle – Fireside was created to remind us of the smell of a summer bonfire… and for me, it does just that. The scent of the candle has soft smoky notes… Just enough to recognize the smell but not so much that your home will smell like the smell “day-after campfire clothes.” No detail was overlooked when creating this candle… We chose the thickest glass, tinted it a smoky colour and poured a high quality wax. The wick is even made of real wood. Very suiting! This is one of my favorite products of the Spring 2014 collection because of the happy summer memories I have of sitting around a fire on a chilly summer night. Now I just can’t decide if I want to burn this candle or just leave it on the shelf to grab and smell every time I walk past.
It’s a pouf, it’s an ottoman, it’s extra seating… it just looks nice! I didn’t exactly have room in my living room for another piece of furniture (even as small as the Pier Pouf) but I found a spot for it tucked away in a corner where it can be pulled out when needed. It’s amazing to think that this pouf is 100% hand made. I’m a sucker for anything with rope; it’s a look that makes sense year round and will work with any colour scheme I choose. I just had to have it.
The Moby Rope Ball fondly reminds me of the family vacations I would take as a child to the coasts of Northern BC. The rope net surrounding the glass ball makes me think of fishing nets and only the freshest seafood. My childhood vacations and fascination with the coast is part of the reason I made the best choice of my life and moved to the west coast. Even though I live close to the water, I can’t make it to the beach every day so I fill my home with objects that remind me of the coast. These things remind me on a cold, rainy day why I moved to Vancouver.
