On friday Canada celebrates her 149th birthday which means not only a long weekend, but it’s also a great excuse to celebrate a few Canadian home decor essentials.

The Hudson’s Bay Blanket

I’d love to incorporate those stripes into our home one day. Maybe a winter blanket folded at the bottom of the bed, a lap blanket on the couch, or some winter throw cushions…

Animal Accents

I’m such a sucker for animal icons, especially the white ceramic variety… If you want to add a fun pop of Canadian wildlife to your home then you’ve got a lot of options – think moose, deer, fox, and bears to get started.

Muskoka Chairs

There isn’t anything more lovely than lounging on a Muskoka chair on a covered porch, or, if you’re one of the lucky few to have a spot in cottage country, looking out over our beautiful Canadian landscape. Breathe deep, relax, and know you’re home.


Whether it’s an original Group of Seven painting of windswept pines, an iconic Canadian landscape photograph, or a homemade inuksuk, art is a super easy way to show off your love for our beautiful country.

We’ll be busy this weekend with our deck makeover, what are you up to? What do you consider to be essential Canadian decor? Is it red plaid blankets? Birch logs? All things red and white?
