Better Living Expert: Summer Style Forecast

Sunny colours, with a chance of pattern

CANADIAN SUMMERS are gone as swiftly as cake at a kid’s party, so it’s important to make the most of an outdoor area, whether it’s a big backyard or a narrow balcony.

FURNITURE—RAIN OR SHINE

A generous table is an obvious way to ground a larger space. Big box stores will have attractive models in metal, synthetic rattan, and wood in every hue. Black-and-white finishes on both wood and metal are also emerging: the uncomplicated aluminum frame and tempered-glass top on EQ3’s Cape outdoor table is a timeless example.

Good-looking, weather-resistant chairs in similar materials are equally available. Arguably the most handsome (and inarguably among the more expensive) right now is the Nodi chair—made with twisted synthetic rope—from the line Yabu Pushelberg did for Belgian design house Tribù, available on Avenue Road.

More realistic, perhaps, is acaciawood seating with woven backs from Rona’s San Paulo collection—in dining, folding and stool options. HomeSense was one of a handful of retailers that included a hanging Egg chair in summer trend vignettes; several, like theirs, were executed in elegant black-resin wicker.

Conversational seating is well suited for drinks, nibbles, and chatting. For that, fans of swivel chairs (who isn’t?) will especially like Lowe’s pretty Ellisview set.

FIRE FEATURES HOTTER THAN EVER

It’s easy to find chimenea and stand-alone units in every style, and now even tables with built-in, gas-fed boxes. Handsome wood and glass lanterns in sculptural shapes, such as those West Elm is showing, are an economical alternative, and have the advantage of being portable. Similarly, hanging lights shaped like flamingos, stars, fruit, or tiny paper lanterns, are a low investment nod to summer.

If space is tight, save some with a five-piece set from Rona’s Shanghai collection, in which wicker chairs tuck neatly under the table when not in use. Urban Barn’s Acapulco-inspired Fresno set has a small, round table and two dramatic high-backed chairs, making it suitable as a table for two, or an occasional outdoor work station.

NO-FUSS GARDENING

Low-maintenance gardens remain popular (see summer, short, above). They’re easy to create, given the vast availability of inexpensive planters and pots, such as Lowe’s sunny hammered gold planters and Ikea’s ceramic pots with creamy bands atop either pink or black bases.

Outdoor rugs have become increasingly sophisticated, both in their design and weather-resistance, as have pillows. West Elm has an exceptionally pretty line made in partnership with super-cool, Los Angeles-based creative art agency, Zoe Bios.

FEAST ON COLOUR

The table is a natural place to introduce colour and patterns, especially as there is so much choice in unbreakable dinnerware, textiles, and accessories, as well as an abundant crop of bold hues and graphic designs.

Real Canadian Superstore and President’s Choice home collection includes, for example, cool patterns and hot colours on everything from ceramic stools to towels and patio umbrellas.

For linens, consider Turkish blankets from Stray and Wander. These organic cotton, hand-loomed blankets with straightforward and subtle stripes are light-weight, ultra-absorbent, and available in several colours. The combination of beauty and practicality means they make a fine tablecloth that can, with a quick shake, serve nicely for a nap under a tree. Which, summer being so short, you’ll want to catch while you can.

HOME FINDS: Petite & Pretty

by Silvana Longo

As square footage shrinks, stylishly smart pieces ensure optimum use of space leaving room for your personality to shine

“A small space doesn’t have to compromise style,” says Tamara Robbins Griffith, HomeSense Design Expert. “A pretty pastel sectional is a functional choice that also makes a statement and can be supplemented with flexible seating like poufs, stools and occasional chairs. Mirrors are always a great accessory in a small space, and hanging textiles and plants—be they faux or the real deal—add loads of personality.”

Pale Blue Sectional $999.99 Macramé Pouf $99.99 Wall Hanging $39.99 each

Furnishing small spaces are chock-full of smart design choices and space-stretching tips. When done successfully, pint-size doesn’t mean sacrificing style or personality for plain old utilitarian function. Check out our latest finds that offer small spaces the whole package.

Sit by Day, Sleep by Night

Four functions in one: seating, single bed, bed for two, and two big drawers for storage.

This almost transparent amchair is so light, it hardly looks like it’s there at all. Perfect for tiny quarters, it gives the room a feeling of airy openness and space.

Add a Pop of Colour

Green is hot this year (See Pantone’s pick for 2017) and a dash of colour is always welcome—especially in a neutral bathroom or any room of the house that needs a bit of character. This little cabinet will hold a lot without taking much floor space. It could work as a bedside table, bathroom storage and extra surface space, a tiny spot for keys in a small entranceway or as an end table. It’s multi-purpose means it will stead you well through the years.
