So a few weeks ago I let you guys know about my involvement with the ‘bloggers give back‘ project — a group of bloggers that have gotten together to transform a garden for a great charity in Toronto (you can read about it here).
Well things have been progressing pretty steadily since then. We’ve got Canadian garden guru Frank Ferragine on board to design the healing garden and IKEA Canada has just shipped a ton of amazing outdoor furniture for the space (thank you, IKEA!). Happy days!
All of the bloggers involved came up with a “mood board” of how they envisioned the garden (check them out here). Here’s what I came up with. Solid basics punched up with fun fabrics and cool accessories. I thought it was also important to have separate lounging and dining areas. I have to admit, this totally got me dreaming about what I’d like to do to our backyard when we get back this summer…
We are now at the stage where we get to pick fabrics from another one of our amazing sponsors, Tonic Living. They are donating two Bench cushions for the long Falster Benches that go with the Dining Table, and four throw cushions for the ARHLOMA chairs. I’m totally digging the “Slick, Mink” and “Flatiron, Pacifica” (geometric patterns…whose surprised?!), but we want YOUR input.
How to help:
1. Visit Tonic Living and see their outdoor fabric collection
2. Come back here and leave a message with which fabrics you would choose.
Plus… get a discount yourself! Tonic Living has kindly offered our readers a 10% discount off EVERYTHING in their store (with no minimum). Sweeeet! The code is BLOGGERS and will be good until the end of 2011. Happy fabric shopping!!
