Trend Watch: Home as the Great Escape

The ongoing stresses of day-to-day life are creating a need for peace, relaxation and tranquility at home. Rejuvenation will be the theme that guides our design sensibilities this season. Design enthusiasts are looking to turn their homes into a great escape, creating a space that feels like a spa getaway or a favourite vacation spot.

This theme of rejuvenation is being translated into all kinds of different decor elements. Here are four top trends I forsee for Canadian homes this season:

Snuggle-Friendly Chairs

Similar to comfort foods or a hot cup of tea, there's nothing more relaxing than a snuggle-friendly chair that you can curl up in and unwind. Comfy, cozy chairs will continue to be essential this season. Perfect for one, but big enough for two - weekend chairs and chaise lounges will be in high demand.
