Welcome to another edition of Mirror Monday! This week I’m welcoming a new addition to our entry area. Since we changed up the storage pieces, the one thing we were lacking was a mirror. The addition of a mirror to either a back or front entryway is key. Most people like to have a quick peek at themselves before going out the door. It’s funny how you don’t know how much you use the functionality of a mirror until you remove one! It’s been months since we had a mirror at the front, even the kids have been missing it. I’m so excited we found a great decorative mirror to complete this space.
It’s been a search to say the least, finding the perfect hallway table can be a style challenge. I’ve been looking for this piece for almost 2 years. I knew I wanted the mirror accents with that Kate Spade kinda feel. A hall table that looked like it was right out of a Tory Burch showroom. I found a handful over the years but they were too deep, or they were dressers for the bedroom. Meet my perfect mirrored table match… The Madison Hall Table from The Brick. It’s contemporary design with a touch of glam is perfect as a show stopping piece for our walkway in the Master Bedroom. The tabletop offers a place to style each season with decorative items, easily one of my favourite design tasks throughout the year. With a mirror finish that beautifully reflects light, it makes your space look even bigger. See how I took our new Madison Table and decorated it 2 ways:
The Tropical Look: add large tropical leaves to get at vacation feel right out of a high end hotel. I added this gorgeous blue vase I found in-store from The Brick for a pop of colour. Finally, trailing throw blankets in this straw basket I also found in-store to continue the Tropical feel.
We all know I love a new rug, so the addition of Ahmar area rug from The Brick has been no exception. This affordable graphic print with Moroccan tassel trim is a striking accent for any space. This hallway with counter top bar seating, has the most walking traffic of any area in our home. Most rugs I’ve purchased in the past haven’t lasted due to the wear they endured on a daily basis. The Ahmar rug is machine woven with a jute and latex backing for long-lasting durability that won’t scratch your floors. It’s made of heat-set polypropylene which is a very durable fibre with the added bonus of anti-static qualities. Hair and fur won’t stick to it, making this material easy to maintain and clean. With both children and a large dog that was quite the selling feature for our family. Coming in under the $225 mark for both sizes, it is also a very affordable rug option. If you rug hunt like I do, you know rugs can be a massive home decor expensive but this one will not beat the bank.

I know you’re probably sick of seeing the snow on my style posts but it’s my reality. Spring comes late to most Canadians, so I’m embracing the chilly and still styling my fav winter pieces. The one thing I will say is a positive, everything winter is on final clearance. I snagged this Teddy coat from H&M for $30! Now that’s a deal. I never like to spend too much on a trendy piece like this. Are you embracing spring? Or are you still frozen in fashion?
It’s my favourite time of the year! Winter is slowly melting but there’s no harm getting a jump on spring decor in our house to lighten the mood. Bring on Spring! Throughout the year, I’m joined by a fantastic group of Canadian bloggers as we share glimpses into our homes each season. At the end of this post, I’ve linked up all the spring inspiring home tours for you to view. Let my spring home tour begin!
This year, to add spring to our living room we played off the amazing gold handles on our fav toy storage cabinet The Adept from The Brick. I love the combo of gold accents, whites and pinks. It’s a subtle fresh look you can add easily to any room.

Continuing with the blush pink, white and gold color palette. We add a few subtle touches to our Bari set from The Brick. I love the side century feel to this stunning dining set. It’s easy to add seasonal accents to change up the look when you have a dining set this classic.
