Fall Home Decor Trends

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 24, 2014 22:56

We were browsing a few home decor blogs this week and just loved some of the styles that are showing up in popular fall 2014 designs. It seems that there is something trending right now for almost any taste, from the simple to the eclectic, and from brights to whites. 

Here are a few of our faves. 

White on White

In an airy home with lots of light, this look would be simply stunning. At Palliser Rooms EQ3 you can choose your fabric and colour to customize your new sofa to meld perfectly with other shades of white in a room.

Cork Flooring

Naturally shock absorbing and insulated, cork is soft and comfortable on your feet. Available at Floorit.ca on 51st, this trend is environmentally friendly and adds a beautiful, natural touch to a space with a minimalist vibe. 

The Curated Look

This style gives you the freedom to simply display the things you love. With this look, the more whimsical and eclectic the better. Check out Twisted Goods for some great unique items to group together on your shelves or table tops. 

High Contrast

This concept adds such a striking element to any room, and can be accomplished with furniture, art, or paint. One of the easiest ways is to introduce a deep wall colour that contrasts with the furniture and decor of a room. Exclusively in Saskatoon at Braid Flooring & Window Fashions, the Farrow & Ball paint line is perfect for rich colours.

Luxury Vinyl Plank 

Durable and water resistant luxury vinyl plank flooring provides the sought-after look and feel of wood, but is child and pet friendly. Carpet Superstores carries a great selection of vinyl plank that has been created to have not only the look, but the feel of rustic boards with woodgrain, knots, and distresses. 

A Gallery Wall

One of the most stylish ways to display your memories is with a cohesive gallery wall. Stop by J&S Picture Frame Warehouse with your favourite photos of your family, your travels, or a few art prints you love. Sherry and her staff will help you design and create a gallery wall that will become a beautiful conversation piece in your home.

We hope you'll take some inspiration from this little list. When it comes to home decor, the most important thing is that your space represents your personality and fits with your lifestyle. Stay true to what you really like and, in our opinion, you can't go wrong!

Warm & Art

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 8, 2014 15:09

Warm & Art is a new home decor and furniture store, found in one of Saskatoon's most recent neighborhood developments, Willowgrove Square. We recently paid a visit to this unique shop, and discovered a style of home furnishings unlike any other in our city. 

Walking into the shop, our eyes were immediately drawn to the wide array of vibrant art lining the walls. With bold strokes and rich colours, much of the artwork has an impressionist style featuring mostly animals and landscapes. With all original pieces in a variety of canvas sizes, Warm & Art is a great destination for someone looking to add a dynamic focal point to a living room, bedroom, or hall. 

Aside from great art, what makes Warm & Art so unique is its selection of beautiful hand painted furniture. Intricate designs in vibrant colours mark the individuality of each piece. From tallboys to dressers, to an armoire that is a jewelry collector's dream, each piece is stunning and luxurious to touch. Beautiful vases and glossy, modern statues can also be found at Warm & Art. One of our favourite pieces in the store was a black rhino statue that would be a great addition for someone seeking a touch of edgy glamour for their home. 

Amidst the gorgeous furniture and artwork, we didn't even notice the electric fireplaces situated throughout the space until the shop owner, Ying, began bringing them to life with a remote. A sleek electric fireplace can add a functional design element to any room, and many of them have a music feature. Simply plug in your iPhone or iPod, and enjoy the ambience of your favourite relaxing playlist. Warm & Art has several different styles of fireplaces to choose from.

Located next to Herbal Time Tea House, Warm & Art provides a unique shopping opportunity that fits perfectly after a hot cup of tea on a brisk fall afternoon. If you're in need of a fun decor piece to liven up your home, or are looking to add warmth to a chilly room, Warm & Art is your spot.

Tips for Finding Unique Furniture in Saskatoon

posted by Elle    |   March 10, 2014 15:23

I have arrived at a point in my life where creating a calming, relaxing, and inspiring home environment is a priority. Gone is the lifestyle I had in my university days, where I spent the majority of my time in class, the library, work- or in transit somewhere between the three. Now that I am settling into a routine that leaves more room for time spent at home, I am much more aware of the way my current living space affects me. The cheaply made, slightly beaten furniture purchased at Ikea and Walmart leaves much to be desired, and the overall vibe of the place has me less than inspired.

While I wrote previously about my experience revamping home decor items I purchased at local thrift stores, its time to take my living space redesign a step further. The time has come to begin to invest in furniture items that will carry me forward into the next phase of my life. I've decided that in making these larger purchasing decisions, I'd like to go for the vintage, the antique, and the repurposed pieces, pieces that have a story, that inspire. In my opinion, the number one most important resource to have in a quest to find this type of furniture is a list of good local Saskatoon sources.

I am thankful that there are many creative and skilled people in Saskatoon who have already done the work of building, reworking, and acquiring collections of the type of furniture I'd like to purchase. Now it is simply a matter of sifting through a few great local shops to find the pieces of furniture that really speak to me. I feel like my personal style is reflected almost perfectly in the offerings of Green Ark Collected Home- if you haven't checked this shop out yet, I implore you to. Green Ark mixes new and re-purposed furniture, made of new and re-purposed materials, resulting in locally made, eco-conscious furniture. The pieces available at Green Ark are often one of a kind, and new items are added regularly, so I suggest that you visit often (212 20th Street West). There is no shortage of unique items to look at, and the walls of the shop are adorned with the work of incredible local artists. The vibe at Green Ark is very chill, and the owners, Allie and Noah, are fantastic. Follow Green Ark on Facebook and Instagram for frequent updates on beautiful new pieces. 

I've also recently come across two local antique and vintage furniture vendors, Dacha House and The Indefinite Article. While I have not visited either in person, both have photos on their websites and Facebook pages that are very promising. Dacha House seems to be your spot if you are looking for a french country, farmhouse or shabby-chic look. The Indefinite Article appears to carry retro-style options and collectibles as well. While I just missed the latest sale at Dacha House, follow them on on Facebook for details about upcoming weekend sales. The Indefinite Article holds pop-up shops periodically- follow them on Facebook and Instagram for the most up to date information. 

As spring rolls into summer, yard sales (particularly those that are estate sales), flea markets, and auctions can be great sources of antique and vintage furniture as well. Of course, Kijiji Saskatoon can also be a good source for vintage and antique furniture, especially if you don't mind doing a bit of refinishing or having a piece re-upholstered. If you're more inclined to go the private sale route and plan to peruse yard sales, estate sales, and Kijiji for furniture, stay tuned for some helpful tips in my next post on the My Saskatoon blog. 

Happy Hunting!
