I know, I know, it doesn’t feel like Spring in most parts of the country (I’m not talking to you, West Coast…) but I have it under good authority that Winter is almost over. So let us rejoice and welcome the warmer weather with some Spring fashion and home décor! And of course, all these great items are made right here in Canada. Because we all know what positive effects buying Canadian has on our beautiful country and its people!
Colour trend expert Pantone’s Spring 2015 Fashion Report tells us to expect “understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals” this season. And what better neutral base that this beautiful jacquard jacket made in Quebec by Mr. Max. A beautiful canvas to dress up just the way you like!
And why not pair it with a gorgeous Leopard mix shopper made in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, by Michique. The twin-sister-designers create their own fabrics for a bold and unique look that is sure to stand out in a crowd. Their logo is surrounded by 9 beautiful Swarovski crystals, because: “When you wear a Michique handbag you are dressed to the nines”!
Spring is a great time to lighten up the makeup just a bit, and hopefully catch a few sunrays for a more natural look. We found this great shade of blush that fits right in with Pantone’s colour trend: Dust by Marcelle. Made in Quebec, Marcelle’s product line is hypoallergenic and perfume-free.
For a Spring manicure, we choose this unique collection of natural mineral nail polish. Made in Ontario by Suncoat Products, this water-based, odourless, eco-friendly, peel-away polish features natural colours and mineral pigments instead of synthetics. No nail polish remover needed!
Welcome Spring into your home, with this beautiful stretched canvas titled “Burlington’s Spring Blossom”. Made in Ontario by Laila's Art, the art piece is printed on 100% acid free canvas and treated using UV protective coating to protect the art. Gorgeous!
Spoil yourself, and your kitchen, with a premium range hood custom-made in Quebec by Aroua Tek. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of high-end range hoods, blending technology and art with breathtaking results.
If it’s the bathroom that needs a little help, how about this striking wall-hung vanity available at Home Depot? Made in Ontario from top-quality materials, it comes in a variety of colours and designs to suit every style.
Another beautiful example of a soft neutral colour choice, this “Havana” leather sofa is made in Ontario and available at Sears. We love its sleek modern feel and tapered wooden legs. Classic and understated style that will match any décor.
