Inevitably all of your friends will be asking “；When’；s the housewarming party？!？”；—begging for an opportunity to sip champagne and buy you plants that will die， but tbh， YOU feel like the one who is going to die.？ SO—we asked our fave Toronto creative team Taylor Dani Reynolds to give us some tips on how to *quickly* and easily spruce up your space after you move in.
Guess what!？ We moved!! After one month of obsessive decorating (and redecorating… and redecorating…) we invited our favorite house guest， Spencerpersonalized gifts for women， over for a tour of our new place. Come along as she puts her feet up in our 70s-inspired apartment.canvas throw pillow covers
Psychologically， warm colours emanate a sense of comfort and closeness. In our dining room bold-hued curtains bring personality to the table. Red in particular is a great colour to have in your dining space as it is proven to rally conversation， inspire enthusiasm， and just generally bring people together. Add a pop of happiness-evoking orange with some wall art and you’ve created the perfect setting for your next dinner party. Charades， anyone？
What to do when your furniture order doesn’t arrive in time for your house warming party？ Improvise additional seating with colorful throw pillows on the ground. Rugs add extra warming to the playful arrangement， making guests feel like they’re at an old-school slumber party instead of a stuffy adult party. We tried this at our own house warming and before we knew it the couch was empty and everyone had made their way to the floor!
When it comes to refreshing your things， moving is the perfect time to go all in. Notebooks， stationery and greeting cards that reflect your personal style are just as key as aesthetic throw pillows.
Keep up with current design trends by infusing your room with the groovy yet grounded aesthetics of the 70s. Bold graphics are brought down to earth with a natural palette of mustard and brown. Wall art brings the whole room together while adding a pop of unexpected colour. ？？
Embracing mismatched bedding is easy when you’re playing with shapes. The key is having a variety in scale. Here a comforter with large， spaced out， shapes plays nicely with a pillow that has a smaller pattern.
Personalizing a bathroom can be tricky. Try a shower curtain in a fresh colour like green and yellow to brighten up the space in a snap.

When decorating a room, it’s important to create a focal point. In a bedroom, the bed is the obvious focal point, so you really want to make a statement. A large piece of art, a headboard with a unique shape, or colorful bedding all draw the eye to the feature wall and draw you into the space. Another favorite option? A canopy over the bed. Here’s how we created this botanical print canopy in a master bedroom.
With the weather warming up and school ending, moving season is well underway. You’re in love with your Purple? Mattress, so there’s no way you’re leaving it behind!
