Its A Decorating Jungle In There!

One of the biggest trends in home decor for spring ’17 is the colour green. Whether it be in a jungle, floral or garden theme, you will be seeing more of this leafy trend growing over the next months to come.

Wednesday’s Style Deal

Every once in a while I like to test my designer eye and head to a discount store and see what I can find. On a recent trip to Niagara, Ontario I stopped at a Giant Tiger store. I found the store very well merchandised with great stuff for kids, outdoor living, clothing, staple food items and home decor. Spotted on an end isle display were these bath mats. The colour was great, quality very good (machine washable, 100% cotton and quality fibres) and larger in size which makes them perfect for in front of a sink or a long tub. Anyways… the price got me… $12. I would expect to find similar for a price of $35-75 in specialty bath store. Where could I find a stylish, well-made bath mat for less than $20? (if you know, please send a message!!!). So the lesson is… keep your designer-eye open as you never know what you might find. Until my next Style Deal post…
