Hudson’s Bay’s seventh floor has been transformed into an Instagram haven, with eight vibrant, playful installations (including a giant ball pit) to help cure the winter blues. The store’s visual department team transformed the space in just 10 days, and it will be open until the end of the season. Here’s a look inside.

This is the view when you walk out of the elevator:

The giant ball pit is a surprisingly effective stress reliever (and much more fun to play in than snow):

Every inch of this room is covered in silver balloons, which spell out words like “happy” and “hello.” (It’s basically a real-life word search):
