Staff Favorites for May: Part 2

Staff Favorites for May: Part 2

Each month, we have our staff select a few of their current favorites from ShopCHT to bring you a curated selection of products that are pretty and practical! Last week, I shared the first half of our May selection, with a focus on plants and gardening and this week we have the second half of our curated selection for May!

LED Folding Desk Lamp: As an avid crafter and maker, I love this lamp for extra light! The simply style and shape is perfect for any decor and the color choices are adorable! – Mandy

Hammock Chair: This chair is functional and adorable! It can match almost any decor and could be used indoors or outdoors! – Micheline

Hanging Shelves: Hanging shelves are perfect in any space, big or small. For those who rent, it’s nice to have pictures and decor pieces on display without making a hole for every frame.- Micheline

Portable Projection Screen: This year, we’re all looking for fun new ways to enjoy time spend at home after months and months of staring at the same four walls! I love the idea of a portable screen that I can take to the campsite or set up right in my own backyard for a fun movie night! – Crystal

Professional Meat Tenderizer Needle: This a must have for BBQ season! It’s an easy way to prepare your favorite cuts of meat for the grill. – Micheline

Staff Favorites: Plants & Gardening!

When asked to help select the curated selection of staff favorites for May, you can tell that the upcoming gardening season is on everyone’s mind! Here are some of our staff favorites of plants and gardening this month!

Handmade Macrame Plant Pot Holders: Growing houseplants is a passion of mine, but I also have a toddler and a few pets running around the home. These are the perfect solution to keep plants out of reach and the macrame look is on trend right now as well! I love that there is a variety of styles available so I was able to pick and choose the ones that worked best for my home! – Alyssa

Smart Plant Monitor: It seems like there is an app or automatic system for just about everything and now, there is one for your plants to! I love how simple and easy this makes it to keep on top of plant care, especially if you have a lot of plants like I do! – Alyssa

Vertical Wall Gardens: I love the idea of Vertical Gardening! I do have a fairly decent back yard for a city lot but I also have a busy family and young grandchildren so I don’t want to use up all of my yard space for gardening. Using wall space or space along the fence leaves the rest of my yard open for gathering and playing! – Crystal

Silicone Molds for Cement Pots: I love a good DIY project – and these silicone molds are so versatile! I’m currently obsessed with succulents and I love these silicone molds for creating my own unique planters but they could also be used to create custom candles, a little office desk organize and more! – Mandy

Potato Grow Bags: I love potatoes. My kids love potatoes. But the majority of my garden consists of planter boxes and pots so potatoes aren’t on the agenda, until now! I actually order a few of these for myself last fall and I am looking forward to giving them a try this summer and growing my own potatoes right on my back deck! – Crystal

New from ShopCHT: Staff Favorites!

Want to know what we’re loving right now? Starting this month, the staff at Canadian Home Trends Magazine, The Marc & Mandy Show and ShopCHT will be selecting some of their current favorites from ShopCHT – bringing you a much loved, curated collection of products worth looking at!

Staff Favorites for April 2021

New to ShopCHT this month, these gorgeous cushion covers will bring amazing color and texture to your home or outdoor living space! In fact, our Associate Design Editor, Crystal Williams recently featured them in an outdoor decor concept for the Cottage & Outdoor Living Issue of Canadian Home Trends Magazine! (Download a copy free by clicking here!)

This stunning, modern LED fixture was inspired by the flow of music notes. Marc, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Home Trends Magazine selected this as his favorite because he said it reminded him of his wife, Mandy (co-host of the Marc & Mandy Show) and her love for music!

We’ve recently launched an expanded selection of draperies here at ShopCHT. Draperies are making a comeback in modern spaces, adding a soft texture and occasionally a pop of color and pattern to otherwise neutral spaces! This geometric pattern is a particular favorite among our staff!

Our home offices are becoming a commonly used space like never before – and selecting the right desk lamp that is both functional and pretty is important. Well the staff are in agreement that this lamp is a gorgeous choice, we can’t seem to agree on which is better: green, pink, yellow or black! Fortunately, it comes in all four colors so you can pick your favorite to! (PS: If you missed last week’s post: our Associate Design Editor is a fan of the Yellow and included it in her home office design board!)

One of our senior staff members recently welcomed her first grandson so naturally, her pick for this month was this adorable, cuddly elephant cushion that would look amazing in any nursery!

As we welcome spring, we’re looking forward to fresh cut flowers and potted plants both indoors and out! These stylish vases and plant pots are at the top of our list this month!

And last, but very definitely not least – Spring means summer is coming, and that means long, lazy summer afternoons spent soaking up the fresh air! What better place to do just that then this amazing, bohemian-style 2 person hammock?
