Crisp modern kitchen with a bright pop of yellow

Of all the rooms in my home I think the kitchen has underwent the most decor changes. It may be because there is only 2.5 small walls to change, so really I can give it a completely different look in just an afternoon. I actually did this kitchen decor update in the spring, but put […]

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 […]

Wayfarers Ale Society, Nova Scotia

A few months back I was given the opportunity to decorate the newly opened Wayfarers Ale Society in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. The owners of this newly built craft brewery had an amazing vision for the esthetics on the outside of the building, but the taproom was a blank slate. I was more than happy to […]

Remember back last month when I shared the news about sinking our teeth into an Airbnb Apartment Makeover?

Big bubble gum canvas print from Shutterfly

This girls bedroom decor was actually a long time in the making. I started doing the painting back at the end of September, but that same week our house got broken into, and it threw a wrench into the plan. Then it seemed I was right into holiday planning and the bedroom got put together but […]

Tips for buying your first rug

Can you believe my 30 year old decor loving self has never bought a rug?! A area rug virgin some would say. Well no more, I have now laid my first rug, and couldn’t be happier with my decision! I teamed up with RugsUSA to add this inaugural decor element in our home, and today I want to […]

Mater bedroom Moodboard

My master bedroom makeover is finally on the chopping block! I feel like I’ve been talking how bad it needs to get done for years now (6 years to be exact) and the time has finally come! I’ve been a busy beaver cutting, hammering, and painting so I thought I better shine some light on […]

built in laundry room with instock fixtures from The Home Depot

It’s so nice to have my laundry life back in order (er, create some order in the laundry room), I’m so excited to show you what has been going on behind the scenes. My laundry room ideas are quite simple, considering the space is only 66″ wide there wasn’t a lot of room to get fussy. […]

Spring inspired paint colors for PPG Voice of Color

Ahh, Spring is finally in the air! I’m ready to spring clean, and freshen my spaces. Recently I’ve been drooling over pretty pastels while I’m in Easter mode. I hauled out my paint decks in search of the perfect Spring Paint Colors. If the colors don’t have your spring loving heart singing the names sure will! I used to think that […]

Laundry Room inspriation

I’ve been a busy little house beaver these days planning home updates and painting everything I can get my hands on! Next up is a Laundry Room Makeover. Like most spaces in our home, they are finished to move in state, but nothing more, livable but not necessarily functional or pretty. Let me show you… Yup, looks […]

Fall Vignette

September 12th, 2014 | Home Decor, Learn How, Seasonal

I love this season, don’t get me wrong I’m sad to see summer go but I love everything about harvest time. In Nova Scotia fall is so bountiful, I swear my grocery bill is cut in half. We have our summer chickens in the freezer, and there is such an abundance of fresh produce available. Bring it […]
