In Transition; How to prepare your space for the season ahead

As the colder months quickly approach, it's time to transition our spaces to cozy up and keep warm until spring. Transitioning for a new season doesn’t have to mean big changes, seasonal ‘themes’ or festive colours. Instead, you can make simple swaps and additions to bring in new textures, layers, and warmth to your interior for the next few months. We’ve got both the tips and the tools for a smooth transition into the chilly seasons ahead. 



Each season has its own comforting, unique scents, and these are a perfect indicator of seasonal change. Whether you prefer candles or incense, we have scents to warm up your space and make it feel (and smell) a bit cozier. The Farmer’s Son Co. Candles made of pure soy wax in Winnipeg, come in a range of scents including “Apple Bourbon” which blends scents of apples, a hint of cinnamon and spice topped with a healthy dose of bourbon whisky. This candle will fill your space with a distinctive warm glow for those cozy nights at home under a blanket. If you prefer the more smoky aroma of incense, the Entenza Incense from Yield will warm your space with notes of eucalyptus, rosemary, and birch. Pair your incense with the Ceramic Meso Incense Holder from Yield for that perfectly neutral look. 



The same way we transition our wardrobes for cooler weather, we can do the same for our interiors. Layering soft, cozy materials and textures with warmer tones will perfectly transition your space with the changing weather. Pillows and blankets are basically sweaters, and not only do they bring warmth and comfort, they come in a variety of colours and materials to suit your style. The Fanø Throw both looks and feels exactly like your favourite cozy sweater. Woven from 100% Scandinavian wool, this throw displays the perfectly neutral yet warm colours of its fibres. If you want to add some knit warmth but opt for a more colourful option, the Bars Throw from Dusen Dusen is that perfect heavy knit in a fun colourway. And to store your new cozy blankets, try adding the Ribbon Basket from Menu or the Restore Basket from Muuto to your space, both aesthetically pleasing and perfect for storing away your blankets and winter reading materials. 


While you’re warming up under your blanket, you’ll need a vessel for your warm drink of choice. The Yana Brewing Pot from Menu features a sleek and speckled stoneware design and serves up perfectly hot or cold tea thanks to its innovative double filter immersion system. And to drink from, the New Norm Dinnerware Cup line from Menu is both rustic, yet simplistic in its appearance and comes in a variety of sizes and styles to suit your preference. 

Colour and Texture

And finally, there are a a few other fun additions you can make to your space to keep it current with the seasons. Small accessories are a fun and easy way to add colour, texture, and visual interest without a big investment or style change. Swapping out throw cushions in your space is a nice place to start when you’re wanting to transition a space as there are endless options. The Duck Duck Pillow from Blu Dot, is available in three different sizes and comes in seven fetching colour combinations offset with a contrast piping detail, making it fun and colourful yet simple and timeless. Made of 80% wool, the Duck Duck pillow will not only add colour to your space but a warm wool texture as well. Dried flowers and stems are a beautiful addition and there are so many options for displaying them. The Ikebana Dried Flower Bowl from Elise McLauchlan comes in multiple sizes and woods and will uniquely display your fall stems. Or, choose from the wide variety of vases available at Hut K such as the new Sequoia Vase (3D printed in Vancouver!), the Kink Vase, or the Cyclades Vase, each beautifully unique in their own way. 

Stay warm and happy shopping!
