In honour of Canada 150 (for you non Canucks, Canada is celebrating its 150th Anniversary on July 1) Ryobi Canada gave the Ryobi North team the challenge to create something that we felt is ‘truly Canadian’.

Vintage Locker Console Table

I’ve been on a mad redecorating binge. One of those you start with a tiny space and it spills over into an entire level of your house. One little furniture project led to another, which led to painting a wall, which led to a new rug… if you give a mouse a cookie situation.  This Vintage […]

This past week my living room went under the knife. It was totally unplanned, but all seem to fall into place. Today I’m sharing the DIY TV console I built that got the ball rolling.

Wild flower bouquet

A few days ago I shared my Master Bedroom Reveal, I’m so excited how it has all came together (if you haven’t seen it yet, you must)! No room makeover in Fynesington Palace would be complete without some treasured thrifted pieces.
