  • HIBOU HOME

    When we very first started Hibou Design & Co in 2015, we had always known a store for home goods would at some point be a part of the Hibou family. In fact, I specifically remember standing in Korina's kitchen, brainstorming names for both the design business and the shop at the same time. It started as a pillow site and as we grew our business the ideas and dream grew with it. In January of 2018, we decided to make it our passion project of the year. We officially kicked it off in May by hiring our website developer and finally launched Hibou Home last week.

     

     

    The site is a reflection of our design aesthetic, showcasing a carefully curated collection of our favourite pieces that we've used in our design projects. It features products we've already installed, loved, and would select over and over.

     

     

    One of our main products is one that we felt the market was lacking; custom, high-quality pillows. We've been going custom on our pillows since we can remember because the ones we find in most stores simply never made the cut and we're glad to finally share some of our favorite designs with you. The pillow fabrics are carefully chosen, cotton lined and all have concealed zippers. We also happen to be very picky about the fullness of a pillow, so after a lot of trial and error, we finally got the perfect equation for the pillow fills that we sell on the site.

     

    We also added some of our favorite rugs, small accessories, and lighting. The idea is to showcase our favorite pieces that are curated to match our design aesthetic so that those of you who like our look can achieve it in your own homes. We have a Style With feature at the bottom of every page that matches products that we know work together so that you're not stuck guessing if the colours are right together or if the patterns are cohesive. We take all the guesswork out of online shopping!  

     

    We're adding products every week and really trying to grow the options so that Hibou Home can be a one-stop shop for home accessories. We invite you to browse the site and we would love your feedback! Happy shopping!

  • HOW TO DECORATE FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS

    As busy as we are closing up our year, we can't stop thinking about the Christmas Holidays. In case you weren't aware, we are closed for two weeks to spend some quality time with our loved ones. However, we won't leave without giving you some inspiration for the holidays.

    Winter has arrived and holiday decorating is almost or already here. There’s nothing more exciting than putting up your Christmas tree while listening to some Michael Bublé. Wouldn’t you agree? 

    Listed below are 4 tips to get you ready for the holidays!

    1. Table Arrangement

    Planning on having the family over for dinner? Here's how to have the perfect table arrangement. Get a centerpiece for the table. We absolutely love the look of garland. Add a few candles, some berries, and your table becomes very festive already!

    2. Add a wreath

    Add a wreath to your front door to show some holiday spirit or better yet, hang some around the doors inside!


    3. Buy a Christmas tree & decorate

    There's nothing like a real tree! Yes, it's messy but the fresh holiday scents and the experience are completely worth it! You can pick out and even cut down your Christmas tree yourself at Quinn Farms. It's such a fun activity to do with the family or a loved one! Enjoy the time spent together decorating your tree with the endless possibilities of choices! I especially love this Winter Wonderland look!

    4. Light up your house

    If we were as patient as the person who decorated their home below, we would be welcome in Whoville! I've seen many houses over the past few years who take the time to show off their Christmas spirit and it's especially great for the little ones.

    Hopefully, these few tips inspire you to be a little more festive this year! Just a few weeks left until the holidays and we haven't even bought our tree or started decorating. We are always so last minute, but who has time when work never quiets down? On that note, we want to give many thanks to all our clients who have allowed us to grow and work on so many beautiful projects this year. Merry Christmas everyone!
