With Canada Day right around the corner we thought it was all too timely to speak on our favourite aesthetic. Canadian design embodies an appreciation for the outdoors, gathering of family and friends, but is ultimately the culmination of comfort and style.
Leclair Decor, for all of our new friends here, was built behind a love for adventure and an appreciation for our Canadian landscape. With such a vast variety of scenery from the Rocky Mountains, to our very own Ottawa Valley and all the Great Lakes in between. We can’t help but feel inspired by this great country and we’d like to show you how you can incorporate Canadian comfort in your home.
Canadian style is easy as a Tim Horton’s Double Double, all you need to keep in mind is comfort and bringing the outdoors in.
When we think of Canadian spaces the first thing that comes to mind are these welcoming homes that are really a place for family and friends to gather and make memories. They emanate the Canadian hospitality and charm that Canadians are sometimes teased over. If you want to recreate this feel in your home simply focus on the functionality of comfortably entertaining your family and guests. Think of large cozy seating and open space living.

Bringing the Outdoors In
Let your surroundings inspire you. You don’t have to be a Canadian to achieve this aesthetic. Simply focus on colour, texture and materials. A Canadian inspired home often uses a relatively neutral colour palette while also including notes of blues, greens and variations of taupe.
Texture and materials work together to harmonize a space in this design style. Think of incorporating the natural warmth of leather or using reclaimed woods to add materials with natural texture to them. The most important rule to keep in mind when you’re using a neutral colour palette is to vary fabrics, tones and textures this will really create an inviting and cozy space.
Bring the outdoors in with these cozy pillows!
From our family and the LD team to yours, we wish you a lovely Canada Day. And to our American neighbours and friends we wish you a Happy 4th of July!!!
