Happy Paint Party Friday my friends! I’m linking up with the lovely Paint Party Friday Group of talented artists. If you Love art check out these inspirational artist.
I hope you had a lovely week. One of my favourite things about Autumn is the beautiful change of colours on the leaves. They are absolutely breathtaking to look at. I wanted to create two paintings to bring that beauty and colour indoors during this time of the year.
I started off with two canvases that I previously painted but didn’t really care for. I love painting over already painted canvases because of the texture.
I then chose the colours for my background.
I applied the paint all over the canvases and let it dry.
I added trees and branches.
I used my hot glue gun to add faux leaves. I bought the leaves from the dollar store.
I kept layering and layering more leaves and branches and I also splattered some crayon wax on top for texture.
I hope you enjoyed my art for this Friday. I wish you all a beautiful weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog!
I was kindly invited by Blend PR to KARE Fall Home Furnishing Collection VIP Event Down Town Toronto. When I walked in the store the space took my breath away. The Collection has pieces from all over the world. Each piece has a story of its own. Gorgeous textures, colours and shapes. I’m in love with many pieces. There is something for everyone in the boutique but also there are so many pieces online. Furniture, lights, accessories and more. KARE ONLINE
It was so lovely meeting Chris from Blend PR and the owners of KARE TORONTO which is located on 553 Queen Street West, Toronto. They also had lovely food and drinks as well.
Here is a glimpse of inside the KARE Boutique.
It was a pleasure being at the VIP Launch party. I bumped into my friend and fellow blogger Cat from
All the home furnishings are so unique and eclectic. The designs are very artistic, colourful and creative. I love all the colours and the variety of textures in each piece.
Thank you Blend PR for the wonderful VIP Treatment!
My favourite piece is this:
KARE was founded in 1981 by two designers, Jurgen Reiter and Peter Schonhofen. The innovations of these successful trend pioneers were their plea for sensuousness, boldness, and individuality in furnishing. With spectacular pieces, this Munich furniture brand creates unmistakable looks that go well beyond the mainstream.
Since 1981 the company – privately owned by its founders – has experienced phenomenal growth with its unique range of products and unconventional furnishing worlds. The company designs and markets everything in-house and then exports it around the world. The recipe for success: three times a year Kare creates new and imaginative furnishing worlds – called “trend shows”.
KARE Design is in over 50 countries with 100 stores worldwide including, Munich, Barcelona, Vienna, and Dubai to name a few, bringing forth its leading design perspective to a global audience
I’m very happy to share with you five ways to Style your home and give it a little something extra special. My main tip is to keep things simple and get rid of items you don’t need. I feel so much better after I get rid of things that I don’t need or use. It’s very cleansing to de-clutter.
I make my own artwork and display it in my home. I love original pieces and art brings so much colour, vibrancy and life to an area of the home. It’s always great to support local artists as well. If you like have a look at my ETSY Art store. I sell all Original Paintings. MetamorphosisByMaria
2. Simplicity, placement and plants!
I like balance when placing or arranging items in my home. First declutter and toss what is not needed. Add plants because they bring life to the room. You can also get fake plants if you are terrible with keeping them alive. I also like using symmetry and balance with positioning/staging.
3. Light and Shapes.
I love adding light and shapes to decor. It can bring focus to areas and give the room a lovely ambiance. I love to add various shapes to a room by using round pillows instead of squares or it can be sculpture shapes. I’m thinking of adding a triangle frame very soon. Shapes and light are lovely to play around with. Light and Shapes offer focus and attention to certain parts of walls or displays and in general making a space look and feel cozy.
4. Frames, Phrases and Photos.
I love adding frames. Especially ones with character and that are distressed. I love the look and I also love personalizing the home with family photos, words and phrases that mean a lot to you and your family. It makes the space cozy and inviting.
5. Books & Ornaments
There is absolutely nothing wrong with little special ornaments and doilies. I love a little vintage feel to side tables. I also love books and love to stack them. They look beautiful in my opinion. I’m not a fan of too many ornaments. They can cause me to get annoyed but one or two are okay with me, especially owls.
Overall I love having simplicity in my space. Too many things cause me to feel overwhelmed. I like the space to feel zen but yet cozy and nice. Candles are also lovely and diffusers. I’m still working on my space and it always changes. How about you?
Spring is almost here and I’ll be doing a lot of spring cleaning. Will you? how about de-cluttering your home? Would you like me to write tips about how to declutter your space? Let me know in the comments.
