Love It - Swans

Inspiration, Gifts, Love ItLesley PocklingtonComment
swellmadeco-swooning-swans-loveit.jpg

Valentine's Day is less than a week away. I usually do a Valentine's Day printable or Valentine's Day DIY, but this year I am swooning over swans. This LOVE IT list follows the heart day theme with an adoration of swans and what they symbolize. Creativity, grace, balance, beauty and of course, LOVE. Those are just a few.

Swans have made their way into art and design since ancient times. They're just so lovely. Swan fact - did you know swans mate for life? And, in many cultures they represent light and dreams.

Enjoy this fun list of swan inspired items for your home, or to simply play with. These aren't your grandmother's swans. Although there are some vintage swans seen above. Let's just say, grandma had solid taste in her day.

  1. Queen Art Print (11x14) by Swell Made Co. This art print is as elegant and graceful as the Queen of the pond herself. Pair with King for the perfect match. Or, pair two Queens. Two Kings. Love is love!
  2. Swan Pouch by Indigo. Bring this dreamy, Swan Lake inspired pouch wherever you go.  
  3. Vintage Brass Swans found on Etsy. Bring some vintage (mid-century) elegance into your space with this set of brass swans. You can also find beautiful brass swan planters and use them for succulents and air plants. Make it modern again.
  4. Swan Tumbler by Xenia Taler. I love the simple graphic work by Xenia Taler, including this swan tumbler with metallic copper finish. 
  5. Gold Swan Pool Float by Fun Boy. Float like a graceful swan (hah!) with this fun pool toy.
  6. Gold Stationery by Swell Made Co. Tell your mate(s) how much you adore them with these gold foil cards.
  7. Deco Bottle Opener found at Leif Shop. Swans had their heyday during the Art Deco period. Pop a bottle with this balanced and beautiful brass opener. A work of art to add to your bar cart.
  8. Swan Chair by Rove Concepts. Show a love for swans mid-century style with this whimsical Swan Chair (Arne Jacobsen). Available in an array of shades, but especially stunning in bright cashmere and boucle wool colours.
  9. OUI OUI Art Print (8x10) by Swell Made Co. Because this is a post about love, after all. Also available as a mini 5x7 art print.

How To - Create a Gallery Wall

Decor, How To, TipsLesley PocklingtonComment
swellmadeco-gallerywall-howto.jpg

Nothing is more welcoming than walking into a space with a great gallery wall. It pulls a room together by nodding to the design elements of the space by pulling a theme or colour scheme together. Plus, a gallery wall undeniably makes a statement. A personal statement of style. 

We've partnered up with Julie Taylor, Interior Decorator & Style Maker, to guide you through the elusive (but oh-so simple) task of creating a winning gallery wall. Julie creates welcoming, thoughtful and stylish residential spaces. She combines her love of interior design, with a background in fine art to bring an innate sense of balance and harmony into her work.

Let's get that gallery on the wall!


Trust us, it's not as difficult as you might think. Just follow these tips. First, here's what you'll need.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

  • Your collection of framed artwork and objects.
  • A roll of kraft paper
  • Scissors
  • Washi or painter's tape
  • Hammer
  • Hardware for hanging artwork. May vary depending on the size and weight of your pieces.
  • Level

HOW TO CREATE A GALLERY WALL

  1. Mix it Up or Stay the Same
    The first step is probably the hardest step. Choosing what you want to display on your gallery wall. In a previous post, Becky Freeman and I talked about How To Curate Art with Heart which helps you choose meaningful pieces for your space. There are still some things to consider before creating a gallery wall. 

    When choosing your pieces consider size (various or the same), the style of frame (various for more eclectic, or the same for a more cohesive look) and the number of pieces. It's nice to have an odd number of pieces, but if an even number happens to flow, that's okay.

    Vary the style of works for a more dynamic look. Realism and abstract. Geometric and soft organic shapes. There should be a common element tying them together (colour is easiest, as mentioned below). Too many similar pieces will create competition. Variation allows each piece to shine.

    One final thing to consider is the theme or colour scheme of the pieces. Try to tie in one element for consistency. Is there a consistent colour throughout? Maybe a consistent theme of beaches you love. Colours and themes will easily help create a cohesive gallery wall, but it's not necessary. When in doubt - keep it simple. It's a balancing act, but it will work in the end.
     
  2. Arrange Artwork on the Floor
    Once you've curated and framed your artwork, it's time to develop a composition for your gallery wall. Clear a space on the floor that equals the space on the wall (not too big, not too small) and start piecing together a layout.

    Again, you have a choice to mix it up and create a more random look. Or, you can space things out equally to create a grid which works well when the frames are the same size/style. 

    Anchor your favourite or largest piece in the centre, and gradually work in other pieces around it/them. Keep a few inches between the pieces as you hang them, and try to keep that consistent throughout.

    Play with it until it feels right. It's all about creating a sense of balance. Don't stress! Just follow some simple guidelines, your intuition and some inspiration. There are no real guidelines or rules when creating a gallery wall.

    Handy Tip: Photograph the arrangement while it's on the floor to give a different perspective during the process. Plus, you'll remember where everything goes!
     
  3. Mock it Up on Wall  
    It's time to start working on the wall. Consider the gallery's proximity to the ceiling, furniture, other walls and objects (not too close!). Also consider where the focal point will be. 

    Once your layout/composition feels right, cut out pieces of kraft paper to match the size of your pieces. A roll of kraft paper is perfect since you'll likely need a lot. Now, you can use washi or painter's tape to adhere them to the wall. Mimic the composition you created on the floor and feel free to move things around until it looks right. Don't forget to step back every now and then.
     
  4. Hammer and Hang
    Finally, it's time to commit your pieces to the wall with hammer and hardware. Using your pieces of artwork as a guide for where to hang is the most accurate way. Place the artwork over it's matching piece of kraft paper to see where the hardware will sit. Use your hand or a pen to mark on the paper. Hammer your hardware in place of your mark and simply remove the kraft paper and tape from the wall. Hang your piece! Keep doing this until the gallery wall in complete. If you need to adjust slightly during this process, it's okay.
     
  5. Enjoy!
    Take a final step back, breathe, and enjoy your gallery wall. Feel free to add or take away pieces as time goes on, keeping the artwork relevant to your life. Have fun and enjoy!

Thanks for reading and good luck with your gallery wall.

Netflix & Wine - Winter Warm Up

Wine, FoodLesley Pocklington2 Comments
swellmadeco-netlfix-wine.jpg

It's time for a winter warm up with Netflix and wine. Cold temperatures mean snuggling up, and watching some of your favourite TV shows and movies. Now, just add some of these wines for a perfect night in. What are you favourites on Netflix right now?

  1. Stranger Things - Eleven Eleven Laki's Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Napa Valley California

    This science-fiction thriller has developed quite a following as it pays homage to 1980s pop-culture. When 12-year-old Will Byers vanishes mysteriously, a group of friends, a frantic mother and a police chief investigate and try to uncover the truth. If you haven't tuned in already, pair this series with a fine wine chosen for its name.

    95 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2015
    “An absolutely brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon from southern Napa Valley. It has a dense purple color, a gorgeous nose of crème de cassis, graphite, blackberry and a touch of oak and a full-bodied, opulent, voluptuous texture, great purity and a stunning finish. This is sensational stuff and a terrific 2013.” - Robert Parker
     
  2. The Crown - Dubbonet Rouge, France

    This biographical drama series follows the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Although a bit dry, the performances and historical accuracy are outstanding. Pair this series with the Queen's favourite drink, Dubonnet. She drinks this aperitif wine with gin on the rocks, daily.

    Ruby/garnet red with orange tint in colour; sweet dried apricot, plum and herbal aroma and flavour with a citrus finish.
     
  3. Lemony Snicket - Southbrook Small Lot Natural Vidal Orange Wine 2015, Niagara Ontario

    Based on the popular series of books from the late 1990s/2000s, this dramatic series is sure to please all ages. Capturing the first four books in the first season, the performances are extraordinary and humourous. The set design is mesmerizing. Pair these unfortunate events with the delightful (and somewhat unusual) Small Lot Vidal Orange Wine.

    Bright amber in colour, with some cloudiness from lees in the bottle. Expressive nose with notes of wildflowers, tangerine, marmalade and bergamot. While the aromas suggest sweetness, the wine is bone-dry, with herbal replays.
     
  4. Lovesick - Mojo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Australia

    A follow up to the comedy series, Scrotal Recall, Lovesick is a witty British comedy that follows Dylan through his love life; past and present. Pair this lighthearted series with Mojo Cabernet Sauvignon. The tasting notes alone ooze mojo.

    Fleshy, vibrant up front notes of blackcurrant pastille and cassis, immersed in lighter dashes of cranberry and crabapple. fruit which seamlessly merge with secondary wisps of chocolate, almond, fresh mint and a lick of stalky high notes. Balanced ubiquitous acid imparts structural support and along with the cedary oak bestows bountiful texture by silkily meshing the palate together.
     
  5. The OA - Vineland Estates Game Changer Red 2014, Niagara Peninsula

    If you liked Stranger Things, you'll love this mystery drama series with science fiction, supernatural and fantasy elements. Pair this series with the Game Changer, an easy to drink red blend. After all, this show is may be a game changer for you!

    Ruby red colour; fruit forward aromas of plum, raspberry and cherry; the palate is extra-dry, medium-bodied showing flavours of strawberry, red plum, spice and a slight herbaceous character on the smooth finish.

 

Love It - Hygge

Love It, InspirationLesley PocklingtonComment
swellmadeco-loveit-hygge.jpg

Hygge (prounounced hoo-guh) is the Danish term defined as "a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being." With the holidays past, but still many winter days and nights ahead, the concept of "taking pleasure in the presence of gentle, soothing things" is one that is welcome. A simple concept, that requires simple things to enjoy an understated luxury that brings much joy. As always, I love to keep things simple. 

Hygge is all about creating comfortable spaces in your home where you can enjoy the little things amongst family and friends, or on your own. Little things include a hot cup of tea or coffee (with sweets), lighting candles (many), reading a good book, enjoying the warmth of a roaring fire, soft lighting, getting cozy with knitted socks, sweaters and throws, soft and varied textures, and bringing outdoor elements in. Just to name a few.

Here are a few of my favourite things to help you bring Hygge into your home:

  1. Walk in the Woods Art Print (11x14) by Swell Made Co. to bring the outdoors in. 
  2. Sage & White Blanket by Cambie Design. Made in Lima, Peru this 20% Alpaca Wool throw is perfect to snuggle up in or use as a wearable wrap. Available in many stunning colour combinations. You'll want more than one.  
  3. Kastehelmi Votives by Iittala. Inspired by morning dewdrops, the droplet design brings the outdoors in. Available in a fresh range of other colours inspired by nature. You'll need more than just one candle, after all!
  4. Gray Checkered Reading Socks by Indigo. Settle in for an evening of reading with these warm and cozy reading socks. 
  5. Into the Wild Soy Candle by Northern Flicker Co. Soft outdoorsy scents and light will create the perfect Hygge atmosphere.
  6. Gold Aromagem Diffuser by Saje Wellness. Create a cozy atmosphere with a relaxing diffuser blend from Saje Wellness. 
  7. Bring the outdoors in with some fresh eucalyptus branches. Place in a simple vase, or try a DIY hanging as seen below. Photo by Mary Jo Hoffman of STILL Blog. 
  8. More Tea Please Art Print (8x10) by Swell Made Co.

Do Better. Be Better.

Holiday, Inspiration, PrintableLesley PocklingtonComment
swellmadeco-better-2017.jpg

I love the opportunity for a fresh start after ringing in a new year. For 2017, I'm skipping the goals and resolutions and opting for a simple intention for the year. Do better. Be better. 2016 was a tough year for the world. Icons lost, denied victories, cities and lives distinguished. It's easy to feel helpless or think inward as the world shifts, but everyday is a chance to be better and there are 365 of them! 2017 is a good year to simply be better in small, but meaningful ways. 

2016 was kind to me in many ways, which I am extremely grateful for (your support, adventures, family time, business and personal growth, new friends); but there's always room for improvement, right? I want to be better. A better mom. A better wife. A better friend. A better business owner. A better member of my community. A better designer. To be thoughtful in my effort to make small changes that have a positive, collective impact. To be better for myself, and others. 

I don't expect to be better at all of those things at once, or even in 2017; but it's worth creating the foundation for purposeful living that will endure. 

swellmadeco-better-clip-2017.jpg

That's my intention for the year. Whatever your goals, resolutions or intentions are, I hope you have a golden year in 2017. They can be simple. Don't stress. Be kind to yourself too. Good goals are flexible; because, that's life. Being flexible and having an open mind will allow you to seize unexpected opportunities that a new year might hold. 

If you'd like to hang this simple reminder in your space, download a free printable here. You can frame it, washi tape to the wall, or simply pin it on board.  

In 2016/2015, I created a free printable (dateless) calendar. You can still grab it here!

Happy New Year, swell friends!

Gift It - My Fave Holiday Gifts

Gifts, HolidayLesley PocklingtonComment
Swell-Gift-It-My-Faves.jpg

Christmas is only a few days away! What?! It's been a BUSY holiday season over here which I am so grateful for. I've been busy packing orders, popping up at holiday markets, and planning for 2017. Plus, we moved at the start of the month. I'm very much looking forward to a "relaxed" holiday break with my little family as we settle into our new home. I say "relaxed" because anyone with small kids knows that doesn't exist, but we can certainly look forward to unplugging and spending quality time together. That's what it's all about, right?

There is no time left to order online, but if you're still on the hunt for the perfect gift for "her", here are a few of my most favourite things that you can pick up in stores (our stockists) or keep in mind for the rest of the year. I'd love to go all Oprah, and give things things away that's how much I love them! 

  1. Little Heart Keytags by Swell Made Co. These little heart keytags are flying! Watch for more coming to the shop and our stockists soon! 
  2. Kreafunk Ahead Headphones from Drake General Store. Make a statement with these wireless white and gold headphones that are the ultimate accessory. 
  3. Cascadia Candle by Woodlot from Skin to Skin Goods. I can't get enough of this candle. It's so fresh and comforting. I burn it from morning to evening. 
  4. Basil + Grapefruit Soap by Charlotte & Castel from Skin to Skin Goods. A must have for bathing and showering. 
  5. Butterscotch Charge Cord. Stay charged in style with this extra long and extra sweet charge cord. Compatible with iPhones, iPads, and more. 
  6. Gold Mini Bar Earrings by Liel and Lentz. Refined and simple, these earrings take you from day to night. They're perfect for those with sensitive skin. Like me!
  7. Pink Grapefruit Argan Lotion by Leaves of Trees. I CANNOT live without this lotion. I use it all year round to keep my hands soft. During the winter months, I buy the larger tube (150 ml.). Also available in other scents and scent-free. I just love anything grapefruit or citrus. Available at Collected Joy and Scout in Toronto. 
  8. Province of Canada Crewneck. When people ask where I'm from, it's easier to just say "Canada". Having lived across the country, this is the perfect sweatshirt to stay cozy and represent this beautiful country.
  9. Moons Art Print by Swell Made Co. This best-selling art print is perfect for any room. Mine sits bedside.

I hope you love these little gifts as much as I do. Happy Holidays from Swell Made Co. May your break be happy and bright. Enjoy!

Happy holidays from Swell Made Co. I hope you find some time to unwind and recharge over the holiday break. We'll be listening to old holiday tunes on the turntable, drinking egg nog and wine and wearing sweat pants for days. All in good company, of course.

It's our first year having family close by for Christmas which is a special time to enjoy traditions. We love an extra chocolatey Bouche de Noel on Christmas Day. What's your favourite holiday tradition? I'd love to hear about it. Comment below, if you like.
