Spring TUNDRA Deco

ARCTICdeco.com: Spring Tundra DecoToday 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.
