Outdoor Trends

Given the brief nature of Canadian summers, our opportunities to savor the outdoors are somewhat fleeting. I'm passionate about crafting outdoor spaces that remain enjoyable right through to the season's end. Dining al fresco is a beloved tradition in my family.

First and foremost, focus on making your outdoor space cozy and welcoming, encouraging everyone to step outside. Design distinct areas and arrange seating that draws people into your backyard or patio. Envision transforming your outdoor area into a serene retreat where you can relish in summer dining experiences. I love this Outdoor Living Essentials set by Walmart Canada. It’s crafted from FSC Acacia wood, this patio ensemble boasts a timeless design with the added benefits of durability and eco-friendliness WALMART.CA

Every Canadian understands the importance of making the most out of our brief summer season. However, if you're like many Canadians who don't want mosquitoes around, I have the perfect solution for you. I fell in love with Thermacell years ago. The Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Radius Repeller helps Canadians enjoy their limited time outdoors by creating a 20ft (6m) defense zone to keep mosquitoes away. I love the sleek design of the black version, but they have several colours to choose from thermacell.ca.  Now I can enjoy the summer evenings without the nuisance of mosquitoes.

Hosting outdoor dinner parties has become effortlessly simple. I truly appreciate it when brands contribute to making my life more streamlined. The new Samsung Bespoke fridge with Family Hub accomplishes exactly this. It has AI Vision Inside ™ that automatically recognizes what's going in and out of your fridge, to help you identify what's making it the best trusty sidekick for a successful dinner party. Access a list of what's in your fridge through the SmartThings app** or Family Hub+ screen to make sure you have everything you need for a delicious dinner, this saves me a trip home when I am already out to see what I need. Samsung.ca

Enhancing my outdoor area with stunning accessories and tableware is something I absolutely adore! HomeSense is a fantastic, convenient destination to add charm and brightness to your space.
