Bright Abodes: Home Decor Tips

Dare to bring your home to life this season with a burst of fresh colour and bold furnishings. Spring is a time for rebirth and rejuvenation, and there’s no better way to revitalize your home than with a little renovation. A fresh coat of paint or a new accent piece can completely transform your living quarters, making you feel as though you’ve stepped into a whole new residence each and every time. This particular space, designed by Joanne Smith Interiors, and featured in Panache Partners’ Spectacular Homes of Toronto, uses a refreshing palette of citrus hues to create a modern vibe, and draw attention to the room’s highlights. With her adventurous use of contrast, Smith reminds us how a punch of colour can liven up a space.

    Can you please let me know, where I can connect with the vendor/designer of the dinning set on page 30 of your spring 2010 magazine.

    Thanks,
