About

After much nudging and encouragement from friends and family, I’ve finally decided to start my own Toronto based decorating business. I’ve been doing it for myself for as long as I can remember and have found that I really love beautiful spaces but more than that I love transforming things. I have a knack for buying the ugliest house on the block just so that I can really make it my own by changing everything about it. The downside to this is that I am constantly living with renos but that’s another story.

What I’ve come to realize is that I actually really like to be part of the process. Many of my projects have included a DIY component (partly out of necessity as budget is often tight) but more often because I like the challenge. The funny thing is that with each project I take on, I find that I’m more capable than I realized. Sewing a pillow isn’t as tricky as I thought nor is making drapes or box valences or even upholstering and refinishing furniture. What a slippery slope….I’m now that creepy lady picking up your old furniture on garbage day. But I kind of love seeing what I can make of it.

I look forward to sharing my misfires as much as my successes and will hopefully provide some inspiration to you in one form or another!

If you're heading away this weekend I hope you get to stay in a guest room like this one overlooking the water and completely secluded from the main house. So serene and relaxing. #projectgeorgianbay It only took me two years to finally decide what fabric to use for romans blinds in my kitchen. It was worth the wait! This @ferrickmason fabric from @memo_showroom is everything I hoped it would be. Fabulous fabricating by @tonicliving as always! I'm loving how my late Grandmothers chair is fitting into this corner of my family room now that she's been revived by @restylestudioto Not only is it adding extra seating but also a home for my new favourite @tonicliving pillow!! #crazypillowlady Three cheers for sunny, slow, relaxing Sunday mornings. ☕️☀️
