Today my husband and I took the day off to wander through Sylvia Grinnell Park (one of the nearby territorial parks) and have a tundra picnic. It was a perfect Arctic spring day: +6°C, sunny and no wind.
Its the time of year when only the most resilient plants begin emerging from the tundra soils, coating the land in a distinctive, northern, spring palette. It’s a mixture of neon-yellow, grey and light-coral lichens combined with maroon, mustard, and deep-green mosses. An inspiring colour palette that can only be adequately described as ‘spring tundra deco’. Its a perfect blend of tones that you could easily incorporate in your home decor. Visions of fuzzy velvet cushions, linen towels, and willow baskets spring to mind.
See for yourself…
With that in mind, here are just a few of my favorite tundra-inspired interiors. What are yours?
